Box set recommendation: Gilmore Girls

Hello Lovely Readers!

Summer is a great time for me to explore more of the Netflix library and find a new box set to get into! I know I know, you're probably thinking "why would you want to stay inside during the Summer?" Well I've done everything I could possibly want to do so far this holiday and I really enjoy catching up on a good box set before getting stuck into my resit placement come September!

When I first starting writing this blog post I was only on season 1 of Gilmore Girls. Now I'm finishing this draft I am on Season 7. It's taken me 3 weeks, which obviously means I've binged watched the series. It isn't new, however it is due to have a remake added to Netflix very soon.

I think Gilmore Girls is a programme that most people can relate to dealing with real life issues. I can relate to Lorelai sooooo much it is unreal. The whole 'man drama' she deals with is something we all have dealt with during our relationships (men and women). It's an easy going, fun, light-hearted rom com box set and if you're searching for something to sink your teeth into prepare to get addicted because you'll love this box set!

I don't want to say too much about storyline because then there would be no point in you watching it! It follows the lives of Lorelai Gilmore and her daughter Lorelai (Rory), through the years as they grow up and experience the difficulties and problems in their lives. It's really nice to see each season begin with a new year and see the new problems they face. I will definitely be sad when I finish all of the seasons and hope that the new remake comes soon!

The notable characters are played by Lauren Graham, Alexis Bledel and Melissa McCarthy. I love their characters and they really have made the series enjoyable. I couldn't imagine their characters played by other actresses, McCarthy is fabulous in everything she stars in and she really shines in her role.

Let me know if you watch this box set or decide to watch it! Would love to know your thoughts.

Moody Monday's Volume 24: Summer update!

Hello Lovely Readers

Sorry I haven't posted recently I have been extremely busy! Time to update you.

Since I lasted posted I have been on the most amazing holiday to Lanzarote. It was beautiful and much needed. I can't wait to go back. Hotel Las Costas upgraded us to a fab suite with a sea view and it had a fabulous comfy bed. When going on holiday you seem to forget all the stresses that surrounded me at that time. It was a shame to have to come back to less than perfect weather!

After our holiday together Scott and I wanted to do more work on the house. This included painting and sorting the garden. Of course the weather seemed to put a halt to all of that. I have plans though to get it finished as soon as I can. Housework can be tiring, I think I'm already struggling to be an adult!

In July I attended my friends graduation. Since I couldn't be graduating with them I wanted to be there so that I could see them on their special day. I know that come December when I can graduate they will be there cheering me on. They all looked lovely and I was so proud of them all. The only downside was that it was FAR TOO WARM!!

I have done so much baking whilst I have not been blogging. I have mastered a fantastic apple and blackberry crumble, dabbled with baking meringues and made batches of brownies! I think this shows I definitely need to do some more food posts and share some of my favourite recipes at this time.

So whilst these are just a few of the moments I have enjoyed in the last couple of months I have plenty more to fill my summer with. Scott is taking me to see Wicked at the Alhambra Theatre in Bradford and at the end of August we are going to Leeds Festival together, which I am really excited about!

I have put all my social media links at the bottom and I have also added a new link. As you know I have started writing for Spice UK online so I will also be posting on there as well. If you click on the link below it will take you to my profile on there and then you can see everything I have posted.

Speak to you all very soon, thank you for sticking with me and reading my posts!
