Farewell Downton

Last night we said goodbye to Downton Abbey after 6 seasons of shocks and awww’s. It has been a wild ride. And I can’t help feeling that we (the fans of Downton) will be hard pressed to find a replacement for this show! There is really nothing else like it out there. And while PBSContinue reading “Farewell Downton”

Platonic Friendlationships

Downton Abbey Season 6 Spoilers Ahead…       I confess. As I’ve watched Downton Abbey the last 2 seasons, I’ve come to wish that Branson and Mary would try and make a go of it. After all, they get along famously and make each other genuinely better people (especially in Mary’s case.) Plus littleContinue reading “Platonic Friendlationships”

It’s That Time Again…

Today is Ash Wednesday. Which mean the beginning of the Lenten season. For the past 2 years, I have given up the hardest thing for me to give up… Television. And I see no reason to stop this year. When I’ve given up TV in the past, I have found myself more focused, more motivated,Continue reading “It’s That Time Again…”

Fictional Couples I Ship Yeah… I couldn’t just pick 5 couples. Because I don’t just watch 5 shows. And even if I did just watch 5 shows, there’s more that one couple per show sometimes. So I’m just gonna go ahead and pick as many as I want, breaking the 5 Fandom Friday rule, butContinue reading “5 Fandom Friday”

Watch This Show!

I know. I know. You don’t need a new show. You already have 7 that you just can’t miss. (Or is that just me?) But allow me to present to you Miss Fisher’s Murder Mysteries. If Downton Abbey and Sherlock had a sassy love child, it would be Miss Fisher. Meet Miss Phryne Fisher. Sassy,Continue reading “Watch This Show!”

5 Characters I’d Invite to My Thanksgiving Feast Today’s blog topic from The Nerdy Girlie and Super Space Chick is about characters I’d invite to Thanksgiving. Before I begin, you should know a little about my family. We are a very tight knit group of people. We uphold many unique holiday traditions and we areContinue reading “5 Fandom Friday”

30 Days of Nerdy Hair-Nerdvember

Day 14: Lady Mary Crawley from Downton Abbey I know what you’re thinking… another Downton hairstyle? But just as the characters are so different and varied, so are the hairstyles. Today I chose Lady Mary Crawley. This is a case of ‘inspired by’ rather than ‘replica of.’

30 Days of Nerdy Hair-Nerdvember

Day 4: Lady Edith from Downton Abbey Poor Lady Edith. She may be the jilted, wallflower of the Crawley family, but the girl has good hair. As we in America eagerly await season 4, I chose to spotlight Lady Edith today. My hair has grown out quite a bit since I first cut it.  SoContinue reading “30 Days of Nerdy Hair-Nerdvember”
