Thoughts I had Re-Watching – “Boys Over Flowers “

Hello, My Darlings! How are you? How’s your quarantine going? I’m reading a lot and watching Kdramas. One of the dramas I’m re-watching right now is Boys Over Flowers ,and I have some thoughts. Let’s dive into it!


The Fashion: it didn’t age well

This kdrama came out in 2009 , and the fashion is very early 2010…It gives me such nostalgia. But for someone younger, it can be hard to relate and understand.

Was Geum Jan Di always this loud?

Why I didn’t remember this? Like that Girl is loud….like VERY loud! My ears are bleeding.

Still love the second couple a little bit more

Don’t get me wrong Geum Jan Di and Gu Jun-py are cute together, but my favorites are definitely So Yi-jung and Cha Ga-eul. Loved their romance, those two are totally made for each other!

second couple

We all need friends like F4 has

The friendships between F4 is the best! They are there for each other till the end and always help one another, this is something I loved to see in this drama.

PLOT

The story starts with a seemingly happy family, getting thru the dead of mother and one of the adopted siblings,who died in the prison. In just 3 episodes we are told a very interesting tale of love, betrayal and family secrets. And slowly one by one the secrets start to come to life. I loved the slow suspense and how well it was portrayed.tumblr_pecl48zcda1v5zaklo1_540

The Cast

I’m very happy with the cast, they did a great job portraying the life of a dysfunctional rich family in the 50s. Bill Nighy as the Leo Argyll was amazing,he truly steals the show!

Would I recommend?

Yes! Most definitely! It’s such an amazing adaptation of this novel. And in true Agatha Christie fashion, you will be guessing who did it until the last minute.

I Rewatched “Gossip Girl” and it’s even better then I remember!

Hello, My Darlings! Do you remember Gossip girl?if not then you are probably too young or lived under the rock in 2008 because this was the “Riverdale” of early 2010. And with a remake in the works, this is the time to revisit it.

Blair and Chuck judging you for not watching Gossip Girl

I loved watching all the new episodes on my tv after school, it was such a great mix of mystery, romance, and teen drama. We were all intrigued by who was this Gossip Girl but more with the lives of those rich kids in New York. For a kid in Latvia, it was like discovering a whole new world, and at the same time finding how similar my friend group was to those kids(Like my childhood/early teen years was drama and scheming fueled, so many situations in the show was similar to those we had).To be honest, I don’t think it even needs a remake because of how good it was.

original

At the start of 2020, I wanted to watch something nostalgic, so I binge-watched the whole 6 seasons in the first week and it was even better then I remember. This was exactly what I needed, THIS SHOW WAS SOOOOO FRICKING GOOD. I really don’t want to spoil anything, because I want you all to watch it (that’s why I will try to be very brief). I loved the friendship between Blair and Selena, how they managed to go from frenemies to actual best friends forever.

tumblr_n2qts3v7kn1rx61nzo1_500

The relationship between Chuck and Blair was much healthier then I remember. In my mind, it was a little bit more toxic, dysfunctional like “I can’t live without you, but I can’t live with you” kinda thing. And it wasn’t really that, but more like “I love you, but we need to grow up”.Overall the thing I understand from them is I need my own Chuck Bass in my life if you know where to get one leave it down below.

Hello, my Darlings! It’s good to be back!I’m sorry I was away for some time, sadly the virus season got me too and I was sick for like a week with a stomach bug. But now I’m back, feeling better. How was your January? Can you Imagine the first month of 2019 ended?! Where does time go? My January was …uneventful. I was sick almost the whole month and the only thing I could do is read. Still, I have some favorites, so let’s dive into it!

Favorite Tv Show

https___s3-ap-southeast-2.amazonaws.com_nine-tvmg-images-prod_63_16_54_631654_p183916_b_h3_aa

giphy (10)Maxwell Smart, a.k.a. Agent 86, works for CONTROL, a Washington, D.C.-based counterintelligence agency. Totally inept as a secret agent, Smart can barely use the gadgetry the agency provides him (including a phone embedded in his shoe). Nevertheless, he and his fellow agents always seem to thwart the operations of KAOS, an organized crime outfit dedicated to evil. Agent 99 is Smart’s smarter partner, a resourceful agent who eventually marries her bumbling cohort. Smart and Agent 99’s boss is a man known only as The Chief.

 

Favorite Book

The best way to describe this book is Gossip Girl meets Pride and Prejudice. This one was amazing!

Romancing Mister Bridgerton
(Bridgertons #4)
by Julia Quinn

Penelope Featherington has secretly adored her best friend’s brother for… well, it feels like forever. After half a lifetime of watching Colin Bridgerton from afar, she thinks she knows everything about him, until she stumbles across his deepest secret… and fears she doesn’t know him at all.

Colin Bridgerton is tired of being thought nothing but an empty-headed charmer, tired of everyone’s preoccupation with the notorious gossip columnist Lady Whistledown, who can’t seem to publish an edition without mentioning him in the first paragraph.

But when Colin returns to London from a trip aboard, he discovers nothing in his life is quite the same, especially Penelope Featherington, the girl haunting his dreams!

And when he discovers that Penelope has secrets of her own, this elusive bachelor must decide… is she his biggest threat, or his promise of a happy ending?

doctor whoHello, my beautiful people! Hope you all are having an amazing day. It’s the time where we talk about past months favourites. March was quite a busy month for me, and we still had snowstorms. Crazy,I know!

Let’s start with the fun part…

 

Beauty Favourites!

Douglas Essential Lip Balm

My favourite lip balm, like EVER!It’s sooo moisturising. And looks really good on the lips, it has very tiny glitter parts(hope you can see it in the picture) that gives a very nice sparkling effect (but not over the top).

 

Beauty of Hawaii Sea Salt & Sugar Scrub

Today I officially finished this jar!I love this scrub with a passion!It smells good, exfoliates very gently, and it lasts for quite some time.Will definitely get more.

Favourite TV SHOW

Favorite Christmas movies

200w_d (1)Hello, my darlings.Can you imagine we are so close to Christmas? Today I want to talk about movies…Christmas movies to be exact. I love to eat cookies, drink cacao and watch Christmas movies in December before Christmas, and I want to share with you all some of my favorites, So let’s start!

 

christmas with cranks

Christmas with the Kranks

Finally alone for the holidays, Luther (Tim Allen) and Nora Krank (Jamie Lee Curtis) plan to eschew the Christmas traditions and take a cruise in the Caribbean instead. This doesn’t sit well with their Christmas-obsessed neighbors Vic Frohmeyer (Dan Aykroyd) and Walt Scheel (M. Emmet Walsh), who are determined to win the annual “best-decorated street” competition, and the Kranks soon find themselves social outcasts because of their lack of Christmas spirit.

Why I love it: It’s a very funny, light and nice Christmas comedy. We love to watch it together with all the family.Recommend for a little “slice of life” Christmas comedy!

 

 

Home-Alone-1-v3

Home Alone

When bratty 8-year-old Kevin McCallister (Macaulay Culkin) acts out the night before a family trip to Paris, his mother (Catherine O’Hara) makes him sleep in the attic. After the McCallisters mistakenly leave for the airport without Kevin, he awakens to an empty house and assumes his wish to have no family has come true. But his excitement sours when he realizes that two con men (Joe Pesci, Daniel Stern) plan to rob the McCallister residence and that he alone must protect the family home.

Why I love it: Cmon this is a classic. I have so many good childhood memories of this movie, we always watched it on the Christmas day.If you haven’t watch it then I definitely recommend you to see it!!!

 

the santa clause

The Santa Clause

Divorced dad Scott (Tim Allen) has custody of his son (Eric Lloyd) on Christmas Eve. After he accidentally kills a man in a Santa suit, they are magically transported to the North Pole, where an elf explains that Scott must take Santa’s place before the next Christmas arrives. Scott thinks he’s dreaming, but over the next several months he gains weight and grows an inexplicably white beard. Maybe that night at the North Pole wasn’t a dream after all — and maybe Scott has a lot of work to do.

Why I love it: It’s such a magical and cute movie, definitely for the whole family.I just love the storyline and the actors …Definitely, a great movie to watch before Christmas or on the Christmas day.

 

Taxi 3

220px-Taxi_3_filmA gang of thieves calling themselves the Santa Claus Gang are wreaking havoc, and the police can’t keep up. Police Captain Gilbert is distracted by a Chinese reporter writing a story on his squad, detective Emilien’s wife has just announced that she’s pregnant, and taxi driver Daniel is in the midst of a relationship crisis. After a string of mistakes in which the thieves outsmart the police time and time again with a reporter there to record it all, Daniel and his super-taxi pitch in.

Why I love it: Sometimes all the “magic”  gets too much for me, and this movie is my go to at the holiday season when I want something more action packed but still festive. A great movie,check it out if you like action/comedy movies.

Well I was on TV (Fire Road 2017)

 

 

ugubs ceļš

On the 23rd August was Baltic Way “Anniversary” and I had the opportunity to be a part of an amazing event remembering this historical event called  “Fire Road”.Where everyone could light a candle in the road as a tribute.

Photo source Nacionālā apvienība 

So What is Baltic Way?Baltic_Way_1

The Baltic Way or Baltic Chain (also Chain of Freedom,[1] Estonian: Balti kett, Latvian: Baltijas ceļš, Lithuanian: Baltijos kelias, Russian: Балтийский путь) was a peaceful political demonstration that occurred on 23 August 1989. Approximately two million people joined their hands to form a human chain spanning 675.5 kilometers (419.7 mi) across the three Baltic states – Estonia, Latvia, and Lithuania, considered at the time to be constituent republics of the Soviet Union.The demonstration originated in “Black Ribbon Day” protests held in the western cities in the 1980s. It marked the 50th anniversary of the Molotov–Ribbentrop Pact between the Soviet Union and Nazi Germany. The pact and its secret protocols divided Eastern Europe into spheres of influence and led to the occupation of the Baltic states in 1940.More about that you can read here.

And we opened the Night News!

So what was I doing at this event?me,costume

Well basically looked pretty in a Ukrainian traditional costume for an hour(Thanks to Ukrainian center who asked me to do it).The only thing I’m really sad about is my resting “Bitch face”..You can see that in almost every single photo. I guess people were thinking I’m mad or just tired..but it’s just my face when it in a relaxing mood.Ah, sad…but I had a great time and the people were so nice.

Here you have another video!
