All I can say is that I’m very happy that I live in the 21st Century, and that my future husband will likely not own a castle with some sort of lock tower. And let’s be honest: Even if he did, he’d never have the power to lock me away in it (because, you know, equality and stuff).

That being said, I’m not totally mad at Francis right now. Is he looking out for France? Of course. Is he looking out for Mary? Yes. Is he still a teenager with a ridiculous amount of responsibility? Always. Let’s dig in!

That’s a wrap! In the last seven days, designers, both big and small, presented their spring 2015 bridal designs during Bridal Fashion Week, and did they deliver, packing in clouds of tulle, exquisite embroidery, hand-pleated skirts, and layers of Chantilly lace.

Dreamy classic whites floated down the runway at Carolina Herrera (far right), Reem Acra, Naeem Khan, and more, but we’d be remiss if we didn’t call out the unexpected moments from the week. Non-tradition swept the collections, including (pictured above, from left) Monique Lhuillier‘s one-of-a-kind hydrangea blue ball gown, Vera Wang‘s edgy web-lace separates, and Oscar de la Renta‘s beautiful beachy bride.

‘Scandal’ ends biggest season ever with highest finale yet

Originally posted on Inside TV:

[ew_image url="http://img2.timeinc.net/ew/i/2014/04/17/Scandal-Finale.jpg" credit="" align="none"] Scandal crushed Thursday rivals with its highest-rated season finale. The closer was up 15 percent from last year to draw its second-largest audience of all time — 10.5 million viewers and a 3.4 adults 18-49 rating. Overall this season, the soapy drama was up 43 percent in the demo to post its best season ever, at least in the ratings.

As for the rest of the broadcast lineup … well … not so great. The Community finale was down 23 percent from last season and the Parenthood finale was down 28 percent from last season. And CBS’ one-hour Crazy Ones finale was really soft for a CBS comedy, with its second episode hitting a series low — this did not help Robin Williams’ odds for a second-season renewal.

Also: NBC’s Parks & Rec sank under the 1.0 line to hit a series low, Fox’s Hell’s Kitchen

‘Orphan Black’ season 2 review: Tatiana Maslany continues to be one of a kind

Originally posted on PopWatch:

For the women of Orphan Black, the world is an open prison, and self-determination is a tenuous contract with The Powers That Be, who view them only as property. Some take this raw deal to survive. Prim, panicky Alison sells out for security in the suburbs with a schlubby hubby who is secretly her jailer. Brainy Cosima ­bargains with a Faustian devil for a gilded cage — her own super lab — where she and her ladylove can pursue a cure for the disease that’s killing her. But woe to the one who refuses to settle: Sarah and her daughter are on the run from men who wish to exploit their bodies and all of Clonekind. Did I not mention the clone thing? Sorry. All these women are clones! Does that make a difference?

Smothered…

Hows it going?  I was debating to have a blog name change and well, then i relaized i am okay with this one i can always change it later on. Eheh. 

Anyway, how has April been going so far??

I have been loving Game of Thrones and The Voice and ooooh Reign. I loved the game change that began with episode 16 when Kenna and Bash were married. D: Loved last night’s episode as well. That scene at the end. Whoa. And that song. Talking about songs.  Currently listening to StyloG’s Soundbwoy. Love ze song.

I managed to catch up to so many films these past months. Finally watched American Hustle, Kill Your Darlings, Wolf of Wallstreet– forgetting what other films I watched.

The only shows that have my eye are the ones mentioned above. Other than those I am casually watching Grey’s Anatomy (getting bored with GA since S07 but have been hanging on), Revenge, TVD, Bates Motel, Da Vinci’s Demons etc etc.

Oh, I marathoned Mentalist. Stopped at S02. I still have to finish watching Dexter but I don’t think I will now after that finale.

How good were those MTV Movie Awards?!! I enjoyed them. Loved Andy Samberg. The performances by Twenty One Pilots and Eminem and Rihanna were amazing. Loved Ellie Goulding‘s dress.

My musical endeavors have involved Within Temptation, Lacuna Coil, some oldies, Twenty One Pilots and the likes.

Oh, I started marathon-ing this korean variety show :p Running Man. The starting episodes aree soo good. I had been watching eps here and there but I never watched the earlier ones. It’s such an entertaining show.

I freaking have to do uni work. :(

I have been reading a multiple books such as Game of Thrones book 3, Gameboard of Gods, and a couple others.

Time flies. :(

Gotta go…

Thanks for reading.

Happy Living.

tumblr_n3gaqs9CF01riilx0o1_1280 Exciting news, Shadowhunters! Actress Mae Whitman ( The  Perks of Being a Wallflower, Parenthood, Arrested Development) will be narrating a new audiobook edition of  City of Bones , Simon & Schuster Audio announced.

The City of Bones audiobook is available to download via unabridged digital download beginning today (April 15).

Cassandra Clare shared her thoughts on Whitman, as well as teased that we’ll like the narrators (emphasis on the plural) for City of Heavenly Fire.

As a sort of celebration of City of Heavenly Fire coming out (and the audiobook coming out — I think you guys will love the narrators) Simon&Schuster decided to re-record City of Bones (with the corrections that have been added over the years — Simon having one sister instead of two, for instance!) — with the lovely Mae Whitman as the narrator.

Here’s the press release:

NEW YORK, April 15, 2014 /PRNewswire/ — Simon & Schuster…
