Weekly Round-up #3

Loved: Doctor Who

I can't even tell you how happy the return of this show has made me! Anyone that knows me will gladly tell you I'm a total geek, and this is one of the things that I'm not ashamed to say that I turn into a bit of a fan girl over. The new series (series 8) started just yesterday and it's the first outing for the new Doctor, I won't say too much in case you haven't seen it yet. I'm really looking forward to seeing how his character develops as the series continues.

Loathed: Nothing

I've had a really good week, everything has gone great.

Laughed at: Outnumbered

I don't know how, but I managed to miss the latest series of this when it was aired on BBC1 in February. Thankfully it's now being repeated on the same channel on Friday nights. If you're unfamilar with the show; it's a UK based sitcom about a family, and it's hilarious. One of the best British sitcoms at the moment, in my opinion. You can catch up on BBC iplayer if you've missed the start of series 5.

Cried at: Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows Part 2

I have no idea how many times I've seen this film, but I still cry every single time I see it. Pretty much everything from "Still?" "Always!" and Fred dying make me bawl like a baby.

Watched: Guardians of the Galaxy

I finally got to watch the film I've been wanting to see since it was released, and it didn't disappoint. I know a lot of people have it pegged as their best ever Marvel film, but I still prefer Avengers Assemble. As a non-superhero film though it was bloody good.

Listened to: Newton Faulkner

This is another artist that I've recently re-discovered on my itunes. I love both albums I have; Hand Built By Robots and Write It On Your Skin, so will probably be buying his others very soon.

Read: Cheap as F*** (link)

If you really dislike bad language you might want to give this blog a miss, but if like me, you don't mind it too much, go and take a look. Cheap As F*** is a beauty blog all about budget brands and products, and as you can probably guess from the name of it, she doesn't pull any punches. She's brutally honest in her reviews and I really respect her for that. It's very easy in this game to try and be someone you're not just to try and gain more followers or to appeal to more brands, but she doesn't do either of those things. I particularly love her series called 'Do I Need This?', testing out primers, setting sprays etc to see if they really do anything and if you should waste your money on them.

What have you been up to this week? Have you got any TV/music suggestions for me?
