So... I finished Gossip Girl!!

OK, lets throw it out there quickly *MAJOR SPOILER ALERT*

Woah, woah, woah, woah, WOAH.

Hold on, last Saturday I FINALLY finished Gossip Girl and I still don't think I'm quite back to my normal mentality just yet.

Since watching the finale on Saturday, I have not stopped thinking about it and I just had to re-watch it again last night. The only way I can describe how I'm feeling is a little like a clingy ex-girlfriend that just can't quite let go yet...yano? Chuck Bass you absolute beaut of a human being, you need to marry me right now.

So firstly let's talk about who Gossip Girl really is.

When I found out that Dan was Gossip Girl I wasn't overly surprised, I wasn't disappointed with the outcome, nor shocked. As soon as it was revealed I had a moment of "oh god, that makes so much sense now, why didn't I guess this before?" I clearly had no clue, but I liked to think for a minute or two that I did! Towards the end of season 6 I was beginning to really dislike Dan, and I think the truth of him being Gossip Girl made me actually like him more than ever!

I really enjoyed the last episode in that they bought back the likes of Little J (Jenny Humphreys), Serena's younger brother - Eric Van Der Woodsen, and even Vanessa came back for the last episode! I really was so glad to see these come back for the big ending event that was Serena and Dan's wedding, which don't get me wrong was great, it was lovely, it was sweet, and it was completely expected. Yawwwwwwn!

So now we have that out of the way, lets talk about the real point of this post. The real reason I watched all 6 seasons of Gossip Girl. The story at the heart of the show that kept me gripped and made me stay up late for too many nights in row... Chuck Bass and Blair Waldorf.

Did I cry?

I didn't bloody stop.

I actually felt over the time that this was a couple I knew and that I had such a desire for them to be together. I believed every single part of their love story, from when they hated each other, to when they loved each other, to the moment Chuck said "will you go to war with me?" and Blair replied "I thought you'd never ask." (it still sends shivers down my spine!)

In my previous Top 10 Favourites post, I mentioned Gossip Girl, and I also mentioned that if they didn't end up together or married I would be pretty much distraught. Slightly over the top, slightly true too. Something I really loved about the final episode was the moment they escaped from the scene of Bart Bass' death, and a song was playing called Bonnie & Clyde which is by a band called Great Northern. I genuinely found this spine tingling (no exaggeration) and my love for them at this point was just beaming and the song just made SO much sense, so much.

I managed to pull myself together for approximately 7 or 8 minutes, until the next scene where Chuck Bass, the beautiful specimen that he is, gets down on one knee, takes the ring attached to the necklace around Blair's neck, and finally asks her to marry him.

Cue a flood of tears right about, now.

If you have seen this episode then you will know that they were under great time pressure to get married before the police found out of Chucks whereabouts. At this point I was an emotional wreck. "YES - Chuck and Blair are finally getting married", "No, she can't get married in last nights clothes", "They can't get married with only Uncle Jack there? Where is Serena as chief bridesmaid?", "Blair cannot get married in that purple eye shadow and no headband" - all sorts of crazy things were revolving around my head.

The mad rush of each character prepping for their wedding was so lovely, and I loved the scene of the men running down the stairs to the wedding. The wedding ceremony itself was short and sweet but so lovely. I was so happy to finally see them together. The wedding was then hurried along by the arrival of the 'cops' with their vows transferring to "three words, 8 letters" and "one word, three letters" (which I thought was super cute, don't ask why, I have no explanation for that one!) and after years they finally became Mr and Mrs Bass.


Still crying at this point, I think my glasses actually became steamy from the tears...
(p.s. Does anyone else ever get that when they wear glasses? SO annoying.)

The episode came to such a happy ending, at which this point I was probably still crying. I definitely have to say that Gossip Girl is one of the best tv shows that I have ever watched and I am SO devastated that it's all over. I also could not believe that Ed Westwick who plays Chuck Bass is British! I certainly had a jaw-drop "no, freaking, way" moment. Hearing him with a British accent made me fancy him another ten times more than I already did, if possible? If you have seen the series and enjoyed it as much as I did, please let me know what you thought and if you felt the same way as I did (although I'm sure no-one is such a emotional wreck as I was in that finale!)

Thanks for reading again, it has been so heartwarming to see so many people viewing my posts now which I NEVER expected in a million years! I hope everyone has a lovely weekend!

Lots of love,

(ps.p.s - did anyone else just LOVE it when Chuck used to say... "I'm Chuck Bass.")

UGH. *insert every heart/love related emoji here*

Pretty little liars is testing my pretty little patience!

Hi guys!

So, who watches pretty little liars? 

Does anyone want to scream about it as much as I do? When on earth are we going to finally find out who A is?

*spoiler alert*

I can't even deal with it! I began watching PLL (yep, we are abbreviating it now) about 6 months ago, I watched all 5 seasons in about 2 months. (Not gonna' lie, I kinda turned into a social recluse and ended up singing the theme tune allllllll daaaaay lonnnnng). 

When I heard that the big A reveal was finally happening I was like, yes. This is the moment I have been waiting for. This is the moment I can finally sleep at night knowing who A is. 

Did that happen? 


Into series 6, and we have now learnt that Charles is A. Who is Charles you ask? Good bloody question. I am one of these people that reads fan theories online and I end up screen shotting every single theory and sending it to my boyfriends sister. 

So, my personal theory? I thought all this time that Melissa Hastings was A. I was absolutely convinced until I saw a few things this week on Twitter and online that have blown. my. mind.

I saw a fan theory that explained that Toby, Charles and Bethany Young could be triplets (which would also explain the 'leaked' storyline that Toby's mum would play a huge part in the A reveal). The theory is that Charles and Bethany were adopted by Mrs. DiLaurentis and that Mrs D and Mrs Cavanaugh (Toby's mum) were sisters, and when you see this photo I found, it all becomes real...
ABC Family / Via

The theory would also explain as to why Spencer was never harmed in A's cave. No-one would ever harm their sister, right? Mrs. Cavanaugh was in Radley and the writers have never really delved into her death/potential suicide. What if it was Charles who killed her? What if he was so angry at the fact she gave her son up for adoption? The fan then mentioned a really valid point which made me "OMG" out loud. In a past episode, Hanna was checking through some dental records that had been switched, and they were trying to figure out who switched the records as that would then lead them to discover the identity of A. Written in the book of people who had recently signed into the dentists office was "C. Cavanaugh". Boom.

If this theory is in fact true, this could also explain that other little dress that Mrs. D got and told Alison to keep quiet about. It was for Bethany Young.

Completely, utterly mind blown. What do you guys think? Who do you think is A? Do you have any theories to make me change my mind AGAIN? Please do comment below or tweet me with your theory! I am so excited to finally be able to say "I know who A is!" and please also let me know if you are going to be re-watching the whole entire series afterwards to make the links!

-Oh, and can we also just take a quick moment to appreciate the old Caleb vs the new caleb. Hell-o.

Please do let me know what you think and whether you think I'm totally, utterly on the wrong page!

Thank you for reading again, and I hope everyone has a lovely week!

Lots of love,

Chelsea x

Summer sun. Kind of...

Hello again!

Today has been a long day! The worst thing about summer is not being able to enjoy it because you've been hard at work all day *insert sad face here* but, I did decide to grab a big ol' glass of wine and sit in the small fraction of the garden that still had a little bit of sun!

When the weather is like this it really makes me want to go on holiday! Where is everyone jetting off to this year? My boyfriend and I have been saving like mentalists for a house and so we have no holiday booked this year. We are in a debate as to whether to go to Italy and fly into one place and fly out from another. Our plan is to fly to Milan, and travel to Venice, Florence and Rome through the journey. 

Has anyone been to Italy and can recommend some really nice places to go? The plan is to do the typical touristy things like going punting in Venice and to the cathedral in Milan, but has anyone discovered some pretty little hideaways? I also speak no Italian which is kinda a problem because the only word I know is "ciao!"

(Note to self - you cannot walk around saying "Ciao Bella!"all day).

Also has anyone been to the love lock bridge in Florence before? If so did you put a lock on there? I know this is kinda classed as illegal now, I think, due to the weight of the locks being too heavy for the bridge to hold, but do let me know! 

Thank you for reading & I hope you have a lovely weekend!

Lots of love,

Chelsea x

I'm the newbie!


I finally did it. After years of reading beauty blogs, fashion blogs, and ‘ooh I really want to eat that’ blogs, I decided it was time to start one of my very own. I am by no means a fashion expert, a gym trainer, an up-and-coming make-up artist or the next Mary Berry, but I do enjoy the good things in life whether that be’ a good foundation or a good piece of cake!

I originally decided to start blogging about things I buy and to maybe give my review on them (as shopping is something I do pretty well!), but I decided that I wanted to go further afield than that and listen to what other bloggers/blog readers have to say too! I’m 22 years old, living in the East Anglia region and a normal working 9-5 kinda’ gal!

Well introduction over, and time to start properly blogging. Thank you for reading.

Lots of love,

Chelsea x
