8 TV Shows You Should Watch!

Monday, July 24, 2017
 
I'm very picky when it comes to finding a good TV show. So when I find one it has to have the qualities of a great show. For example, a consistent story line(s) a great cast an interesting plot and cliffhangers! Surprisingly these shows have become my favorites and others I don't watch as often but I binge on reruns. If you're looking for new shows to watch, new or old here are 10 TV shows you should watch. 
 
Law & Order: SVU
Mariska Hargitay is a great actress and her portrayal as Olivia Benson is brilliant. She makes you feel like you're in an episode of law and order. If you're not into police shows then this might not be for you, but the drama and reality of the story lines are very deep. In every episode the beginning grabs your attention and the plot stays consistent and it doesn't drift into a another direction. Olivia Benson's is caring but at the same time she plays no games. I like and admire this character as well as actress Mariska Hargitay, because there's still a lot of people who don't believe a woman should be in charge. So I think both actress and character are breaking barriers! Law and Order can be found on NBC Wednesday nights or repeats on the USA Network and the ION channel. 
 
Criminal Minds
This is a show that I haven't watched in two seasons, but it still remains a must watch. It's hard not to get attached to characters because they inspire and you can't help but to feel compassion for them. I still watch repeats of this show because it's that good. This is also a police FBI kind of show, I can't help it. Like most shows you have to watch from the beginning to understand certain obstacles and story lines that some of these characters or cases lead up to. Criminal Minds is no different. Criminal Minds comes on Wednesdays on CBS but also A & E and the ION channels. 
 
Pretty Little Liars 
I did not care for this show at all when it first came on. I was not interested until the third season. So I binged watched the two previous seasons to understand what was going on. I will admit that I was wrong, because I really like this show. It has a bit of suspense, mystery and drama. It's very intriguing and it grabs you right in. The last episode was on June 27 but this show will go down as one of the best! Pretty Little Liars came on the Freeform on Tuesday nights, but you can watch it on Netflix or Hulu on computers. 
 
Chrisley Knows Best
This show is a reality but it's not like the usual ones you see. This family seems so genuine and I can tell they love each other. There is always a valuable lesson to be learned and you will cry laugh and feel inspired while watching this show. Chrisley Knows Best comes on the USA network and sometimes on E! 
 
Chicago PD
This is my last police show, I promise! Chicago PD was a show I didn't expect to like so much. But after watching a few crossover episodes with Law & Order SVU, I knew I had to watch. I started watching this show when season three premiered and during this time I binged on the first two seasons. This show is one of the best and I'm always trying to solve  the cases with them. As with other shows like law and order and criminal Minds you can't help put to love each character. You can watch this show on Wednesdays after law and order or on demand. 
 
Diners, Drive-Ins and Dives
The food network has to be one of my favorite channels. This show is my number one favorite. The food is great to look at and one day I might visit some of these places. So if you're a food person you should definitely watch. I should warn you that you'll be hungry before the show even starts! 
 
Famous In Love
Marlene King is known for creating the Pretty Little Liars series and although it's ended, she didn't leave us empty handed. Famous In Love is a great show and it got my attention quick. To summarize what this show is about, I'll just say love lust betrayal drama and many secrets! If you're into shows that have a juicy plot and interesting story lines, I definitely recommend this show. It comes on Freeform (previously ABC Family). It usually comes on Tuesdays but while it's not on television, it is however on the freeform app. 
 
Two Broke Girls
I'm sad two broke girls was cancelled, this show always cheered me up. There was never a dull moment and the chemistry between Kat Dennings and Beth Behrs (Max and Caroline) was great. This show is always showing repeats on television. I believe on TBS, so if you're interested in watching it's on this channel.

NYX Ultimate Warm Palette

Tuesday, July 18, 2017
 
Everyone girls favorite thing to buy is makeup. I love makeup am I good at applying, not so much but that's ok. Don't worry I never leave the house with on, I don't want people staring at me! I am very picky when it comes to makeup. I'm not really into bright eyeshadows, I'm more of a neutral warm tone kind of person. So while I was on Instagram NYX cosmetics posted a picture of their ultimate warm palette and I almost flipped out. 
 
This palette is so gorgeous! The colors are vibrant but not loud if you get my drift. In this palette you will light softer tones and dark warm tones. I like the variety in this palette because if you're going for a simple look you have the look light colors but if you want an evening look you can spice it up with the warmer colors! 
 
 
I'm very excited about these colors because they are super pigmented and they don't look washed out. In my opinion, I feel like certain makeup palettes give off the illusion that the colors have a lot of pigment but when you swatch or apply it to your eye, the colors don't show up as much. So it's like your packing on the eyeshadow 3 to 4 times for it to pop. 
 
 
Row 1: These colors for me would be great for the highlight under the brows. If you're simple like me you could also use these for an everyday look. 
 
 
Row 2: This row would be a more elegant classy look paired together with the colors in the first row. 
 
 
Row 3: Here's my favorite row by far! These colors are so gorgeous and would go great for a Summertime look. This is where the vibrancy comes in with this palette. If you want to give your eyes a hot and spicy look, this is the row for you! 
 
 
Row 4: This row is my second favorite and it leans more towards an evening/ nighttime look, in my opinion. This row is darker but not dull, by any means. 

I hope you enjoyed reading this post! What makeup have you been loving lately?

When working on my hair, it tends to become a messy process. My hair is either clumped together or all over my face. So I can't wait to use these clips. They are used for sectioning the hair in different parts. This will help me moisturized each part of my and ensure that I don't leave any section out. My hair tends to get dry during the Summer.

If you're like me, then your skin isn't  just in one category. I have a combination of dry and oily skin. This is so annoying because for the most part it's hard to find a product that works for both problems. So when I found the Clarins HydraQuench Cream Gel, I knew I wanted to try this out.

I love using body scrubs! Not only are they great for exfoliating, but the results are smooth soft skin. So I would love to try this cucumber body scrub. When I think of cucumbers, I feel calm and relaxed. Most importantly it would be great for a pamper day! 
 
Astor Acetone Free Nail Polish Remover Without Acetone 
I recently started paying attention to things that are in the products, I use. So while doing some research I learned that Acetone is not good for you. Using remover with Acetone will dry your cuticles. So I will be purchasing Acetone free remover.
