How's the weather for ya up there, northerners? It's a whopping 65 degrees here in Florida. Add howling wind, and I'd be lying if I said I wasn't a little cold. Sorry, don't hate me!
While I'm not too familiar with the snow days some of you up north may be enduring today, I'm all about hurricane days, or even a plain ol' storm day. On days like those, there's nothing I love more than snuggling up with a fuzzy blanket, fuzzy pup, and fuzzy boyfriend and getting lost in a book...or more recently, my Apple TV. Whoops.
As of late, I've started a couple of new shows on HBO, Showtime, and even MTV that I can't peel my eyes away from. So if you've got the day off, or you're simply looking for a new TV addiction, here's what I can't stop watching these days:
GIRLS - HBO
If you haven't heard of this show, or at the very least Lena Dunham, you've probably been living under a rock. The show follows four best friends' very different journeys in none other than New York City. From break ups to failed book deals to being thrown out on your ass to sex, sex, and more sex (in true HBO fashion), Girls shares the struggle of 20-something women trying to make it in the Big Apple. In a way, it reminds me of a version of Sex and the City, but with a little more edge, and a little more real.
HOMELAND - SHOWTIME
I'll be honest - I wasn't 100% sure I'd be into this show. While nearing the age of 24, I'm still greatly into "guilty pleasure" shows with not a single ounce of intelligence. Anyway, this show begins with the return of Marine Nicholas Brody, who was held captive in Iraq for eight years. CIA agent Carrie Mathison (Claire Danes...LOVE!) suspects that during his time in captivity, he may have "turned," a.k.a. may have returned to the U.S. with ulterior motives. I'll tell you what: you definitely can't multitask while watching this show, at least not if you want to keep up...but let's get real, you probably won't want tear your eyes away.
REAL WORLD: SKELETONS - MTV
Errrm, remember those guilty pleasure shows I was talking about? Ding ding ding, we have a winner. My boyfriend got me hooked on this sad excuse for a television show, and despite the excessive drinking, blow out fights, and general stupidity, I can't look away. Maybe it's because my own life is nothing short of drama free, but I can't help but get wrapped up in the failed relationships and crazy antics of people I don't know. Seriously, if you're looking for a mindless show to just laugh at, this is it. It's unbearably addicting.
Shows I'm kind of over...
- Pretty Little Liars - I still watch it, but come on, are we EVER going to find out who A is? I'm totally lost in a sea of random characters and twists and turns, I don't even know which way is up anymore.
- Keeping Up with the Kardashians - I don't even watch this show. And I wish America didn't either. WHY, PEOPLE, JUST WHY?!
Enjoy your snow day in, guys! XO
