I watched “I Love Lucy” first season and it was AMAZING!

About the TV-Show

Cbs No GIF by Paramount+ - Find & Share on GIPHYI Love Lucy is an American television sitcom that originally aired on CBS from October 15, 1951, to May 6, 1957, with a total of 180 half-hour episodes spanning six seasons. The show starred Lucille Ball, 171 I Love Lucy Gifs - Gif Abyssher then real-life husband Desi ArnazVivian Vance, and William Frawley. It followed the life of Lucy Ricardo (Ball), a young middle-class housewife in New York City, who either concocted plans with her best friends Ethel and Fred Mertz (Vance and Frawley) to appear alongside her bandleader husband Ricky Ricardo (Arnaz) in his nightclub, or tried numerous schemes to mingle with, or be a part of show business.

It was first known as The Lucille Ball-Desi Arnaz Show and later in reruns as The Lucy-Desi Comedy Hour.I Love Lucy became the most-watched show in the United States in four of its six seasons, and it was the first to end its run at the top of the Nielsen ratings (an accomplishment later matched only by The Andy Griffith Show in 1968 and Seinfeld in 1998).

MY THOUGHTS 

Another vintage Tv Show I am putting on my Favorites List! This is such a classic and I haven’t seen it, being that I’m from Europe. So now Thanks to technology I could watch it and It was amazing. I can totally see why it was (and still is) so popular. It’s easy to watch, funny, and has such a lovable cast. My concern with any old ‘classic” is …How racist and sexist it really is? And I can say it wasn’t that bad(just by watching the first season, can’t comment on the others yet). Yes, it has a big emphasis on the “women place” at home and “men’s place” at the workplace. But taking into the account the year and what was “expected” from people and families in particular at that time,I can’t really criticize. So overall I’m very happy with this TV show, it’s perfect for casual watching when you cook or clean. (And my boyfriend’s parrots love the opening)

The Gentleman’s Guide to Vice and Virtue(Montague Siblings #1)by Mackenzi Lee- book review

Henry “Monty” Montague was born and bred to be a gentleman, but he was never one to be tamed. The finest boarding schools in England and the constant disapproval of his father haven’t been able to curb any of his roguish passions—not for gambling halls, late nights spent with a bottle of spirits, or waking up in the arms of women or men.

But as Monty embarks on his Grand Tour of Europe, his quest for a life filled with pleasure and vice is in danger of coming to an end. Not only does his father expect him to take over the family’s estate upon his return, but Monty is also nursing an impossible crush on his best friend and traveling companion, Percy.

Still it isn’t in Monty’s nature to give up. Even with his younger sister, Felicity, in tow, he vows to make this yearlong escapade one last hedonistic hurrah and flirt with Percy from Paris to Rome. But when one of Monty’s reckless decisions turns their trip abroad into a harrowing manhunt that spans across Europe, it calls into question everything he knows, including his relationship with the boy he adores.

The story– 3/5

Setting of the book– 2,5/5

Smexy Times?– Some

OVERALL – 3/5 STARS

I know I know…everyone has read it like years ago, so I’m a little late to the party. So…What did I think? To be honest, because of the “hype” this book had I expected much more, but…it was just average. The writing style was good, but the plot was lacking. I wanted more of the world-building. But the romance in this book was cute,I liked it. Was it enjoyable? Yes! Will I ever reread it? No!

FAVORITE QUOTES FROM THE BOOK

“Nice to have you along, Felicity.” I clamp the pipe between my teeth and fish about in my pocket for the flint. “Remind me again where we’re permitted to drop you by the side of the road.”

❤

“How is it that we’ve landed the only bear-leader for hire who’s entirely entirely opposed to the true purpose of the Tour?”“Which is . . . remind me.”“Strong spirits and loose women.”“Sounds instead like it’s going to be weak wine with dinner and handling yourself in your bedroom after.”-

❤

“You are the thieves.”“Monty’s the thief,” Felicity says.“No, I am the second thief. Which I think cancels out my thievery.”

❤

They should be throwing gratitude and kindness and cream puffs at us, though I’d settle for just the cream puffs.

Official Focallure Aliexpress store: You can find this powder here 

My thoughts :

PACKAGING

It came in a brand box with a seal, so you know it’s new and not opened before. It had the sticker with the scratch code of authenticity (just like mascara had). The “jar” is made from very sturdy plastic and the puff is of great quality. So I’m happy with the packaging.

 

QUALITY AND HOW IT APPLIES

I got the color 01 Ivory(Fa-15) and it’s perfect for my pale nordic skin. It’s a very light powder that really is perfect for oily skin, it keeps you matt ALL DAY. But…if you have some dry spots, it’s not for you it will not look good(trust me). I apply it with my powder brush from Aliexpress, but you can totally use the puff (I sometimes do it, when I’m at my boyfriend’s house and have forgotten the brush).

Overall I love this powder and have tried the 02 Natural color some years ago, at that time it was too dark for me, but I loved the texture…and I can say it’s still the same great quality. Can’t wait to try more stuff from this brand(I’m slowly getting obsessed)

PROS  
  • long-lasting
  • Perfect for oily skin
  • Affordable
  • Great gift idea
  • Travel friendly
CONS
  • it can “wash” you out
  • Not good for dry skin

My thoughts :

PACKAGING

The mascara came in a beautiful sealed box with all the ingrediant list and information. The actual mascara tube is made from very sturdy plastic.I really like that the parts Lashprimer and Mascara are labeled.

On the box you can find a QR code and scratch number to make sure your product is original . Such a great idea and truly ,mine was original!And of course the “best before” is a good thing too.

QUALITY AND HOW IT APPLIES

The first you put on Primer. I do around 3/4 coats of it on my lashes. It has little fibers in it ,and they do get into your eyes. It’s not the most pleasant experience,but it’s nothing critical.

After it, we get to the mascara. The want looks pretty average, but the way it’s curved…that’s something new. It’s slightly angled, so you can really get into the corners of your eyes.

What can I say about the application…it’s easy but time-consuming. It’s not bam and ready. You truly need like 5 min just for the mascara(and even more if you are using the primer), and in the mornings sometimes it’s not an option. Another not the greatest thing…it’s messy. But, it’s truly waterproof…like you can go swimming with it and it’s still in your eyes! And it tear-proof(I tested it a few times…don”t ask)

PROS  
  • long-lasting
  • Waterproof
  • Affordable
  • Great gift idea
  • Travel friendly
CONS
  • It’s messy

Overall I really like it and liked it!It’s such a great mascara for summer.
