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. New trending GIF tagged eating i love lucy… | Trending GifsAfter the series ended in 1957, a modified version continued for three more seasons with 13 one-hour specials; it ran from 1957 to 1960. 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)

MY THOUGHTS 

ALIVE 2020 Tumblr posts - Tumbral.comWOW! I’m impressed! The first zombie movie I actually enjoyed. Let’s start from the beginning … So on one of our date nights my boyfriend was browsing Netflix for something to watch together, and he found this one. I wasn’t really excited…because of zombies(I hate Zombies with a passion), but when I saw the actors…alive (2020) | Explore Tumblr Posts and Blogs | TumgirI knew we NEED to watch it. I loved Yoo Ah-In in Chicago Typewriter and the darling Park Shin-Hye (she was in kdramas like –Pinocchio , Flower Boy Next Door, Heartstrings) is my favorite actress EVER! And guys…THIS WAS AMAZING. Truly! The story was very interesting, and it had a unique thing- most of the “action” happens in an apartment complex. Was it gory? Yes! Was it overall gory? Yes and No! Like, it was bearable even for me a person who gets scared pretty easily. Overall I would recommend for you to check it out.

Nine Rules to Break When Romancing a Rake (Love By Numbers #1) by Sarah MacLean -book review

joanna-kosinska-kKfVAvdBsAw-unsplash

6584134A lady does not smoke cheroot. She does not ride astride. She does not fence or attend duels. She does not fire a pistol, and she never gambles at a gentlemen’s club.

Lady Calpurnia Hartwell has always followed the rules, rules that have left her unmarried—and more than a little unsatisfied. And so she’s vowed to break the rules and live the life of pleasure she’s been missing.

But to dance every dance, to steal a midnight kiss—to do those things, Callie will need a willing partner. Someone who knows everything about rule-breaking. Someone like Gabriel St. John, the Marquess of Ralston—charming and devastatingly handsome, his wicked reputation matched only by his sinful smile.

If she’s not careful, she’ll break the most important rule of all—the one that says that pleasure-seekers should never fall hopelessly, desperately in love.

The story– 4/5

Setting of the book– 3,8/5

Smexy Times?– YES

OVERALL – 3,9/5 STARS

My first historical romance of the year! And it was pretty good...long, but good(and very quotable ) I read it in one sitting. The story was interesting, I liked Callie and Gabriel together (they did have amazing chemistry, so well done). Some parts did feel a little forced, but it didn’t spoil the story. Overall would recommend it if you love historical steamy romance.

FAVORITE QUOTES FROM THE BOOK

”Of course, one might argue that lurking in the darkness isn’t exactly ladylike.”
“Ah. There you have it wrong. I am not lurking in the darkness. I am hiding in it. Quite a different thing, altogether.”
❤“I shall endeavor to remember tea first, milk second. I should hate to cause another war between Britain and the Continent.”
❤
“You look quite lovely tonight.” Oxford leaned in, and his smile broadened. Was it possible that the man had more than the usual number of teeth?
❤“You forget one of the most important tenets of London society.”
“Which is?”
“Wealthy, unmarried marquesses are always welcome back into the light.”
❤
“Are you quoting the Bible to me?”
“Indeed,” she said primly, the portrait of piousness.
“While gambling.”
“What better location to attempt to reform one such as you?”
❤
“Never doubt how beautiful you are, Callie. For your beauty has quite ruined me for all others. And, frankly, I rather wish I’d found you years ago.”
❤
“Dear Lord,” Callie breathed.
“I’ve tried prayer myself,” Benedick said genially. “It doesn’t seem to work with her. I believe she’s made a deal with the Maker.”

I have seen here and there those initial rings, and when I saw something similar on Aliexpress…I WAS SOOO HAPPY! And the price …UNDER 1 EURO! So of course I got myself one. I’m very glad I got it. The quality is good for the price, the shipping was okay.

 Sabrina Stickers 10 pcs

Avon “Luck” for Her Eau de Parfum-review

ABOUT THE PRODUCT :

Sparkling citrus and luscious berries blended with creamy white florals and warm sandalwood.

  • Top: Pink Pepper
  • Heart: Nutmeg
  • Base: Sandalwood Essence

My thoughts :

I got this perfume for myself as a Christmas gift. The price was 4.99 euro for 30ml, so very affordable.

Packaging

I got the 30 ml version, so the packaging is average. It’s a solid glass bottle(a little bit heavy and that’s amazing). The 50 ml bottle is MUCH cuter(it has a bow on it), but the cardboard box of this one is such good quality(very sturdy), I’m impressed.

Quality and Scent

The quality of the perfume is A-M-A-Z-I-N-G! It stays on my skin a whole day, like around 8h. But on my clothes, it stays even longer, like 24h. I’m so happy with it. The scent is great too, it’s sweet but not overbearing. I love Sandalwood and you can really smell in this perfume.

OVERALL

4 stars
PROS  
  • long-lasting
  • great for everyday use
  • Affordable
  • you can get 30 ml or 50 ml
  • Great gift idea
  • Travel friendly
CONS
  • You can’t buy it in a store, just from a representative

Photo by Sincerely Media on Unsplash

Hello My Darlings!How are you all doing? I’m so sorry for being away for some time..but First of all…Happy NEW YEAR!

Hope this year started amazingly and all of your wishes will come true.

Amazing 2021 Happy New Year Gif Animation

Let’s talk a little bit about Why I was away.  So…the short answer- I got overwhelmed with everything. The cases of Covid-19 in Latvia are in all time high and our government decided to do a total lockdown,yes we had a lockdown before…but this one was(and still is) much more stricter and they announced it a day before it started, one of the big “deals” was that all stores will be closed and you could buy just the essentials (like groceries) until 13.February…overwhelming gifs | WiffleGifSo you can imagine what happened that particular day (a week before Christmas). But…it wasn’t the end (of course…why should it be?!)A day before New Years eve…we got a CURFEW.Like…no one can be outside after 22:00 at night and before 05:00 at morning. For like a week…And at the same time my everyday life was very GO GO GO .You can imagine how hectic it all was and still is.Marilyn Monroe pouring champagne. celebration gif | Marilyn monroe gif,  Marilyn, Marilyn monroe

 

But on the brighter note – This was the first New Year I didn’t spend with my family ,but with my boyfriend(and yes…I have a boyfriend…very unexpectedly…like REALLY UNEXPECTEDLY) and my friends and family really outdid themselves this year and got me some really cool stuff for Christmas(post coming soon). Basically December and the start of January was unexpected ,hopeful and busy.
