This Week I’m… | samanthalalaa

After a much welcomed and much unneeded hiatus, I’m back baby! To be quite honest with you all, I was bored with what I was doing on the blog. Who hasn’t seen a thousand Lush Reviews? Also who even cares? Not me… anymore.

This week I’ve decided I want to talk a bit about the things I’ve been obsessing over this week, let you know what I’m hooked on, what floats my boat and so on. So without further ado, WELCOME BACK!

THIS WEEK I’M…

Watching… GAME OF THRONES

I know right? Lured you in above thinking I was bringing fresh content, but here I am talking about a show that came out seven years ago. Expect the unexpected people.

My boyfriend is very much into Game of Thrones, and after much persuasion he finally got me to watch it with him. This was mostly due to the fact he took it upon himself to watch RuPaul’s Drag Race with me. I’d watched Season 1 with him about a year ago, and thought meh, that’s okay. It was a bit meaty for me, too many characters, too much to remember, too much history for a TV show. Then about last week I started watching Season Two, which again felt so slow… so drawn out… and by Season 3 I was hooked. For me, that’s when the show got insane. I then watched a season a day until I was caught up, the new season is out on Monday the 17th, and I’ll probably sitting up till two am, watching in in my Daenerys wig with my pet dragon ready to take back the Seven Kingdoms.

Wearing… TOPSHOP GREEN JUMPER

I haven’t had this jumper off since I bought it really. It’s my favourite thing to throw over literally anything. In Scotland, we’re not having too great a summer, sure we get days here and there, but more often than not it’s the same grey weather we always have. It sounds insane, but this jumper is a perfect Scottish Summer staple. It’s warm, but it’s casual and bright. I also love the sleeves because they make me feel like that bit in Back to the Future part 2 where Marty puts on the future jacket and the sleeves don’t fit. In fact, that’s probably why I bought it. It was on sale for £16 in Topshop!

Listening to… ALTERNATIVE EIGHTIES 

This playlist by Spotify, Alternative 80s  is constantly on in my car. As a wannabe child of the eighties, and a wannabe nu wave, punk, indie cindy – this playlist is right up my street. It’s got Blondie and Bowie, The Cure and The Smiths, Sonic Youth, Simple Minds,  Siouxsie and the Banshees… the list goes on.

Wearing  (On My Face Edition)… KYLIE COSMETICS – IN LOVE WITH THE KOKO – DOLL

This shade is the most poppin’ colour I have ever put on my face and I am infatuated with it. It keeps even the most basic of my make up looks (which are pretty much all basic) and turns them up to 11. I got the In Love With The KoKo collection from my lovely boyfriend on my birthday and all the shades in it are really beautiful and wearable, but Doll is the winner for me.

Reading… TWIN PEAKS FAN THEORIES 

Since the return of one of my all time favourite TV shows, I’ve been obsessed with finding out exactly what the fuck is going on. Week after week I feel like nothing happens and then I go onto reddit and apparently so much has happened. I feel like Twin Peaks: The Revival is akin to sitting on a plane waiting to sky dive and you keep thinking it’s about to happen… and then it doesn’t and you’re still on the plane waiting. That’s my feelings. So /r/twinpeaks is really seeing me though the weeks in between episodes.

That’s all for this week guys! I hope to be back next week with some more of my disjointed thoughts and ramblings.

Lots of love,

Sam xoxo
