It's a bit of a shocker considering I don't really like summers, but I actually kinda like this one, it's slow and lazy. Plus, we had a few cool, rainy days which are always welcome. Last summer was quite surreal and frankly a bit of an emotional rollercoaster although I didn't discuss it here, so I'm looking forward to silly fun and relaxed time. Days are spent shopping, reading, watching tv and movies and planning holidays.
Speaking of shopping, I picked up these thingies above the other day. Colourful and affordable, they cheered me up instantly! I really love the colour of the nail polish, I'm planning to paint my nails soon and I remembered Alecca Rox's post about the Lip Smackers so I had to get one of those as well! Watermelon flavoured, it's summer in a tube.
Ok, and now it's suggestion time: Do yourself a favour this summer and watch Misfits. It's British tv at its best. Let me sell it to you: A group of five young offenders doing community service (pictured above) get caught up in a freak storm and start to develop superpowers. It's way better than it sounds, and please don't compare it to the crap-fest that was Heroes. It's witty, funny, suspenceful, sexy and racy. It does contain strong language, a bit of gore and sex but hey, that's Europe for you. The first season is only 6 episodes long and I urge you to check it out, it will get you hooked from the start.
And, a book recommendation while I'm at it. Just finished Stephen King's Cell, and it's a perfect summer read, if you're into zombies in a post-apocalyptic wold that is. Imagine a message transmitted through your phone that turns each and everyone who hears it into a mindless zombie. There are of course those who don't own a cell phone so it's them against the zombies. As above, I don't need to tell you that there is lots of gore and blood and all that jazz, I mean it is a Stephen King novel. It's fun and easy to read and if you like this kind of stuff you'll thoroughly enjoy it. So, watch Misfits and read Cell. What's a summer without zombies and delinquent superheroes?
And a feet shot for the end. I currently live in these flats which you may remember from this post. So comfy and perfect for when you're a pedicure short for sandal-ready feet. *cough*
Until next time, have a cocktail with a paper umbrella.
