The Bold Type Season 1 Review

The Bold Type Review In The UK On Amazon Prime

I found my new TV Show to watch! The Bold Type, which is on Amazon Prime, and it’s good!

It’s actually not new, it aired in the USA in 2017 on an American network, but we got it in the UK back in February…You may have seen the ads for it on TV. If you like programs like Entourage, Girls, Red Oaks etc. then you may like this. I love shows like this, because it’s all about the characters and their friendships, which is exactly what those other shows are about. The backdrops are different, but other than that, the shows are a similar style.

So The Bold Type is about 3 friends and a fashion/lifestyle magazine called Scarlet, where they all work. Jane is a new writer, who’s just been promoted and is looking to make an impact in her career. Sutton is an assistant who’s looking to break into the fashion side of the magazine, and Kat is in charge of the social media at the magazine.

The secondary characters are brilliant and play a key role too; There’s Jacqueline, the boss at Scarlet. Richard, a board member, lawyer and secret love interest of Sutton. Alex, a writer at the magazine. Ryan aka Pinstripe guy, writer for Pinstripe, a men’s magazine owned by the same group as Scarlet, and the love interest of Jane. Adena, a photographer and romantic interest of Kat.

I have now watched the whole season and really enjoyed it. It’s kind of coming of age, with all the characters growing and discovering throughout the season, all set in New York City which always makes a perfect big city scene.

The good news is that there’s a second season coming up in June! So if you want to jump on The Bold Type bandwaggon, now is the time, and you’ll be ready and set for the second season.

Today was the day, later than most of the other teams, Spain announced the squad which will be going to Russia in the World Cup this Summer. The squad is the following:

Goalkeepers: David de Gea (Manchester United), Pepe Reina (Napoli), Kepa Arrizabalaga (Athletic Bilbao).

Defenders: Jordi Alba (Barcelona), Nacho Monreal (Arsenal), Alvaro Odriozola (Real Sociedad), Nacho Fernandez (Real Madrid), Dani Carvajal (Real Madrid), Gerard Pique (Barcelona), Sergio Ramos (Real Madrid), Cesar Azpilicueta (Chelsea).

Midfielders: Sergio Busquets (Barcelona), Isco (Real Madrid), Thiago Alcantara (Bayern Munich), David Silva (Manchester City), Andres Iniesta (Barcelona), Saul Niguez (Atletico Madrid), Koke (Atletico Madrid).

Forwards: Marco Asensio (Real Madrid), Iago Aspas (Celta Vigo), Diego Costa (Atletico Madrid), Rodrigo Moreno (Valencia), Lucas Vazquez (Real Madrid).

Asensio and Vazquez are named as forwards by most, but are seen more as midfielders, which means there’s only 3 real strikers. Not a big surprise.

What do you think of the squad?

The Best Men’s Floral Shirts For Summer – Get The Trend

Men's Floral Shirt Trend - Best Of This Summer

The hot weather makes me think of a couple of things, and when it comes to fashion one of those is floral shirts. I love the classic, solid, staple colour shirts you wear for most of the year, but if you want to make a statement in the warmer months, jumping on the printed shirt trend is the way to do it.

If you’re looking for tips on how to style them, advice on where to shop for them or are just looking for some inspiration, you can sit back and read on 🙂

I Bought Far Cry 5 – Here’s What I Think

Far Cry 5 Review

I do like playing computer games, but for the most part they’re football based. So that’s either FIFA or Football Manager, with one being action and the other being strategy. I am not a hardcore gamer, I’d call myself a casual gamer. I was in the mood to get a new First Person Shooter game for either PC or XBOX One, so decided to go the XBOX One route. There was 2 on my list of possibilities, Call Of Duty or Far Cry 5. I chose Far Cry 5.

I’ve never played any Far Cry game, so didn’t know what to expect, and only played a couple of Call Of Duty games. I read a little bit online and watched a few YouTube videos, and as far as I can tell, Far Cry 5 is more of an open world whereas COD is more structured with missions.

NEW In: T-Shirt, Linen Shirt & Chinos From Uniqlo

Uniqlo Linen Shirt, T Shirt and Chinos For Summer 2018

Hey guys!

So since we’re getting into the Summer, I thought I better upgrade my Summer style and add a couple of things. Some of these you’ll have seen before, because I’ve featured them in a little preview, and they’re all from Uniqlo.

I’ve never bought anything from Uniqlo before, but they’ve been on my radar for years. Since they don’t have any shops near me, I’ve had to buy them online, and they only seem to sell them on their own site, so it’s never been a huge priority to sign up and get some things. But I finally have, and this is what I’ve got!

I picked up a linen shirt in blue, white Supima cotton T Shirt in white, and some chinos in a cream colour. Basically a whole outfit, and the cost? Less than £50! I am really happy with the quality of all the items, the fit is good, so here’s the details on each piece.Continue Reading

Last Weekend: Football, Eurovision & More

Last Weekend - Wearing Shirt & Light Denim

Hey!

I hope you’ve had a good weekend. How is Monday treating you? We have the sunshine and it’s warm, but have you seen all the greenflies and other tiny flies which are around? There’s so many swarms of them here!

This weekend was pretty low key. I watched Eurovision which was on by Israel and that novelty song; What did you think of that? I usually get hyped for Eurovision, but this year I didn’t catch the 2 semi-finals, and I thought the final was pretty average at best.

It’s always a bittersweet time for football too; It was the last day of the season! 🙁 It was a good win for Newcastle, beating a poor Chelsea team 3-0, and finished the season 10th. It was higher than expected, and well clear of relegation in the end. Will Rafa stay, and will Ashley give him money to spend? Probably not on both counts, Rafa only has a year left, and if he’s not given money to strengthen, then why would he stay?
