Christmas Tag – Getting nearer to the festivities 🎄⛄️

Recently I’ve received a tag into a Christmas Tag by Hilesh over at https://sightswithhsite.wordpress.com

Now if you follow my blog you will know I’m not a really Christmassy person but it would be rude of me not to join in!

WHAT’S YOUR FAVOURITE CHRISTMAS MOVIE?

I don’t really have a favourite Christmas movie, not something that I watch every year that is. I do however love to record the movies on Christmas24, Channel 5 and other Sky channels to watch over the weekend and Christmas. 📺❤️💋

HAVE YOU EVER HAD A WHITE CHRISTMAS?

Maybe a couple of sprinkles but never a full on White Christmas. I have had a White Thanksgiving though. I love to go to New York 1st time was for New Year and it snowed on New Years Day. Since then I have been 3 times for Thanksgiving and I recall 1 was definitely snow as we didn’t know if we would be flying home. Not that it would have been a bad thing to be stuck in NY!! ⛄️❄️☃️

WHERE DO YOU USUALLY SPEND YOUR HOLIDAY?

I’ve been in my own home for 6 years it’s just me and the pooch, Tinky, my beautiful Staffy cross Jack Russell and we spend the day snuggled in blankets watching TV and eating what we want. I love it and generally go to my parents on Boxing Day joined by my brother, sister-in-law and niece and nephew.

WHAT IS YOUR FAVOURITE CHRISTMAS SONG?

As a huge Mariah Carey fan since my teens it has to be All I Want for Christmas it’s a classic and I just love Mariah.

DO YOU OPEN ANY PRESENTS ON CHRISTMAS EVE?

Nope! Not even on Christmas Day most are usually already at my parents and any I have been given including any Secret Santa’s I’ve done go with me to open Boxing Day.

WHAT HOLIDAY TRADITIONS ARE YOU LOOKING FORWARD TO THIS YEAR?

I don’t really have any traditions like most other than no tree, no decorations and staying home on my own with the pooch on Christmas Day. I refuse to go anywhere now as when I lived with parents I was the designated driver and whilst everyone enjoyed a drink and fun I really didn’t enjoy myself. So now I have my own house I do what I want.

WHAT IS YOUR FAVOURITE HOLIDAY TREAT/FOOD/SWEET?

I wouldn’t say I have a favourite I just eat the same over the holiday period as I would any other day or week but as I am not a fan of Christmas dinner I usually have Southern Fried Chicken or Ribs for my Christmas dinner! 🍗🍖

BE HONEST, DO YOU LIKE GIVING OR RECEIVING GIFTS BETTER?

I like giving as I know I’m a difficult person to buy for! I have usually bought that things I want/need myself.

WHAT IS THE BEST CHRISTMAS PRESENT YOU EVER RECEIVED?

Probably as a child I got presents at that age I really thought were the best but nothing really springs to mind.

WHAT IS YOUR DREAM PLACE TO VISIT FOR THE HOLIDAY SEASON?

Well as per the early question about a White Christmas New York is my dream place to go I love how magical it is even for someone that really isn’t into Christmas I well keep going back as much as I can.

ARE YOU A PRO PRESENT WRAPPER OR DO YOU FAIL MISERABLY?

Fail miserably which is why my Mum wraps them all and yes that includes her own, Just to clarify my Mum is as awkward to buy for as I am so she usually gets her present, pays for it and then tells me what I’ve bought her and how much I owe. Usually this is done without my knowledge but it is very hard to find her something.

MOST MEMORABLE CHRISTMAS MEMORY?

Again like best present nothing really springs to mind.

WHAT MADE YOU REALISE THE TRUTH ABOUT SANTA?

Finding all of my brother and mine’s presents hidden on my parents wardrobe!

WHAT MAKES THE HOLIDAYS SPECIAL FOR YOU?

Time off work!! That is if I have any Annual Leave left which I usually don’t. As I am not a huge fan of Christmas I have been known to work it and could possibly be doing again this year. I work full and part time and my part time place of work is open 24 hours 365 days a year so who knows I could work again this year.

So I hope you enjoyed my answers in this fab Christmas tag huge thanks to Hilesh of https://sightswithhsite.wordpress.com

I’m sure a lot of you have already been nominated so just get involved and let me know when you’ve done it so I can check out you answers.

Have a great Christmas Everyone! ☃️🎄

New Shows

Are you ready for more Will & Grace? 📺❤️💋

 

A while back now it was announced that Will & Grace were coming back and I loved this news 😊 definitely was a fan of the show. Whilst it has started airing in the US I have been wondering and searching for who will air it in UK 🇬🇧

Finally we now know it is going to air on Channel 5. Friday 5th January 2018 to be exact at 10pm. 😍📺❤️💋

This is great news as I know not everyone has Sky, Virgin and the Streaming platforms so that everyone can enjoy is great news 👍🏻

Now I ❤️ Will & Grace but for me Karen & Jack totally make the show and I will laugh 😂 at their scenes so much. Certainly looking forward to this being back on my TV 📺 in January.

Are you a fan of the show will you be watching? Drop me a comment and let me know I love reading your thoughts 😍

Happy Viewing and if you love a reboot check out my post https://wp.me/p90g6e-aR

Will & Grace - Season 1

I admit it I’m not a Christmas 🎄 fan??

So whilst everyone is posting about their excitement for Christmas 🎄 gift 🎁 guides and traditions I feel I need to admit I’m not a big fan of Christmas 🎄 😮

There is no particular reason I’ve never had a bad experience that haunts me I just see it as another month and another day. I also see it more a day for the kiddies and as I’m single with my pooch, Tinky we just chill out all day with blankets and junk food (I’m not a fan of Christmas dinner either!)

I do like seeing all the lights and decorations and went to my 1st Christmas Market in Harrogate last month. I love buying unique gifts for family and friends. 🎁I love watching all the Christmas movies on Channel 4, 5 and Christmas24. 🎥I just don’t get excited by it. 🤷‍♀️

No tree or decorations 🎄are put up and no cards will come from me. I’ve been in my own home 6 1/2 years and I stay home with the dog and we eat and do what we want all day and then I go to my parents on Boxing Day to see the family and torture everyone with me not opening presents all day long. 🎁 My Dad also does this and it drives them crazy 😝

So call me strange, weird or whatever else you can think of but that’s my normal and I’m ok with that 👍🏻

Enjoy your Christmas whatever you do as I’m sure to enjoy mine. 😍

New Shows

Feud Bette & Joan Coming to BBC 2 📺❤️💋

Feud Bette + Joan

Source: BBC 2 press pack

What is it all about you may wonder? Well Feud comes from Glee Creator Ryan Murphy (also behind The People vs OJ Simpson). The 8 part series is a dramatization based on actual events and is definitely a star studded affair which I wouldn’t expect less.

Starring Susan Sarandon as Bette Davis and Jessica Lange as Joan Crawford it covers the tension and battles during the production of 1962 film, What Ever Happened to Baby Jane? Also starring Stanley Tucci as Warner Bros Studio Head, Jack L Warner, Alfred Molina as Director and Producer Robert Aldrich and recurring appearances from Catherine Zeta-Jones as Olivia de Havilland and Kathy Bates as Joan Blondell.

It aired on FX in US back in May and not long after was announced that it had been procured by BBC2. I did kind of suspect this with BBC2 airing Ryan’s other hit about OJ and that they have also acquired American Crime Story: Versace which is due to air early 2018. I have been trying to find out when this would air ever since I found out it was making it’s way to the UK.

Can’t wait to see? Well not long to go it starts on Saturday 16th December at 9pm which I am led to believe with a double bill. Will you be watching I sure will, drop me a comment and let me know?

Happy Viewing 📺❤️💋

Admit it who was a Dawsons Creek Fan? 📺❤️💋

In my late teens early twenties I was obsessed with watching Dawsons Creek. I loved this show it was fabulous!

0CE4E93B-262F-467A-A1E0-236EAC7E602F

We followed their teen dramas and angst wondering if Dawson would finally get the girl he was a little unlucky in love! Personally from the beginning I always wanted Joey to get with Pacey but I think that was more my undeniable crush on Joshua Jackson 😍 Jen was not your girl next door like Joey she brought a different edge with her own dramas and wild child ways.

So the news from Channel 4 that they have added all 128 glorious hours to All4 gets a big thumbs up 👍🏻 from me 🤗 I could watch and watch over again.

If you’ve never watched the show do it regardless of age (I’m 38 now and still ❤️ these teen shows) if you’ve seen get on it and watch again. 📺

Click here for Dawsons Creek

Did you watch? Are you going to watch? I would love to know drop me a comment 📝

New Shows

Did you hear the news? Sky announces new original shows for 2018 📺❤️💋

Sky Original Programming 2018
Yesterday it was announced by Sky that over 50 original productions are coming our way, yay 😍 I love this news. Above pictures and below statement are from Sky’s website.

Managing Director, Content Gary Davey said: “There’s never been a more competitive time to be in the content business and I’m incredibly excited by the scale, quality and authenticity of the UK TV industry right now. Next year will see over 50 Sky Original Productions on air and over 20 of these will be returners – a testament to the popularity of our shows – and it doesn’t stop there, with our increased investment, the focus for 2018 remains getting even better on screen.”

What does this mean then? Well from what I can see Riviera with Julia Stiles, the best performing original series, will be back on Sky Atlantic for another series. This is good for those that enjoyed but I have to be honest I gave up on this part way through, Riviera wasn’t for me. The Jack Whitehall comedy, Bounty Hunters, currently on Sky One will also be back. This I love as I am really enjoying this and the banter between, Jack, Rosie and Charity’s characters is hilarious. Very good news that this has been renewed. 😍

New Shows are also coming Gangs of London, which I understand is the working title will come to Sky Atlantic in 2019. Set in present day London, it follows the tearing apart of a city controlled by international gangs. Urban Myths: When Bowie met Bolan and Urban Myths: The Dali and The Cooper and lots more. I am sure will come out over time so give me a follow and I will keep you updated.

Happy Viewing 📺❤️💋

 

Reality TV

Interview with RHOPotomac’s Mrs Monique Samuels 📺❤️💋

60CC1ECA-2C24-46A5-A5AF-101B2B6F312A

The fabulous Mrs Monique Samuels has already made an impact over in the US after joining Season 2 of The Real Housewives of Potomac and was voted New Girl in the Real Housewives Awards as above. If you watched last nights Episode 2 on ITVBe the UK got to meet this great addition who caught Gizelle’s shade and dazzled us all with a little rap 🎧🎼

I got a great opportunity to ask Monique a few questions so us TV Addicts can get to know her some more:

Had you seen any of the Real Housewives prior to joining?
Yes I’ve been a Housewives franchise fan since the very beginning! I started out watching RHOC and RHOA. I keep up with all of the franchises! 
What attracted you to join the Housewives?
At first I was hesitant to join the show but my husband encouraged me to do it. He said he loves how I always put myself second to everyone and everything, so this was the time for me to do something for me. I enjoy being around boss women and can typically fit in to any circle! 
How did your thoughts on the other Ladies change from beginning to end of the Season?
I love being around strong women so my thoughts pretty much remained the same. We all have strong personalities and I enjoyed getting to know each woman in this circle. I’m accustomed to meeting woman from all backgrounds. 
What do you want everyone to know about you?
I’m a hardworking woman who loves to laugh and make others smile. I try to see the positives in every situation. I keep i‎t real to a fault. My family comes before everything. I always aim to please but I won’t change the core of me to fit into any group. 
Now that Season 2 is finished do you have any regrets or take anything away from filming the Season? & are you signed on for the currently filming Season 3?
I have no regrets. I appreciate every lesson. That’s what helps me to grow and to continue to develop into a better me. I’m looking forward to showing more of who I am as a person, and what I actually do when it comes to business and charitable work. You’ll see a lot more of that in season 3! 

Can’t wait for you all to see more of this great season on ITVBe Sundays at 9pm. Can’t thank Monique enough for taking time out of her busy boss schedule to answer a few questions for me 🙏🏻👏🏻
