Sunday Funday – Rain Edition.

It’s Sunday, It’s raining..again.

The sun is shining, everywhere is dry… OH wait, we live in England.

Instead of being super bored for the entire day, moaning that it’s a waste of a day and nature hates us and we only ever get 4 sunny days in England, take a look below at some easy date day idea’s to do in the rain! 

IMG_7648

Staying dry..

  1. Go bowling –  It’s like £6.19 at Hollywood bowl and student discount is available too! You can shove on jeans and a hoodie and this is still perfectly acceptable with those lovely red blue and white shoes..
  2. Go on a rainy day shopping spree – Whats the reason you’re stuck inside? Head into town and buy each other those cute rain coats (that are possibly only acceptable to wear at festivals) but you forget all about them when it isn’t raining. Orr just head straight to H&M and get another outfit that you probably don’t need.. Crop tops for £3.99, everyone needs those!
  3. Go out –  find a Cafe with a big window. Sit by the window and sip hot chocolate whilst making plans for another day.. or laugh at everyone getting soaked outside. (You can laugh cause it’s gonna be you in a while!).
  4. Eat – Go and eat too much food. When it rains we head straight to a Carvery. We eat our body weight then struggle to walk out, then we head straight home to put PJ’s on and chill with our food comas.
  5. House projects – Whether you wanna change one room or the entire house, nip out, grab magazines and catalogs and sit there and start getting ideas. ( I did this but actually just ended up making a photo collage and putting 7 strings of fairy lights up..)
  6. Go Ghost Hunting – Every town or city has some old places to check out, so try it.
  7. Arcade – An arcade doesn’t have to be expensive (unless you’re me and you REALLY need that £2 teddy from the Claw grabber..) Give yourself a budget, it’s like 50p to play air hockey and beat your OH, then you can be smug for the entire day too.
  8. Book a short break – You can book short breaks online with a deposit of like £20. OR if you go onto booking.com, on most of the hotels you don’t have to pay until you arrive. This means plenty of time to save.
  9. Board games – When was the last time you actually played a board game? Dust them off from the cupboard and give it ago. Again, if you win, you can be smug all day..
  10. Netflix and Chill – I love Netflix. Whoever invented the idea of Netflix is in my opinion, a god of their own. Put some PJ’s on, Face masks (Which your OH clearly does wanna do but just not when he’s being a “LAD”) and snuggle with a Netflix series. You’ll be surprised how much you get through.
  11. Go to a water park – Water world in stoke is huge. It’s around £10 each and you can be in there for hours!
  12. Play The SIMS – I recently downloaded this on my mac and have been playing it since. I keep building houses and being like “This is gonna be our house”. Sims is a guilty pleasure and Dan loves to pretend he doesn’t like it and then gets involved.

Don’t Mind Getting Wet..?

  1. Walk – Put your wellies on, act like a kid and go splash in puddles. Get your OH to take some photos so you have memories too! Anyone can get photos plus theres no one around if you feel awkward about posing. (I strongly recommend not doing this in jeans..wet jeans hurt.)

Failing all of this, just do the obvious…

Finally – That Lazy Sunday.

I really don’t have much to write, because its literally been.. That Lazy Sunday.

Last night we finally got a night in with 0 plans.

Yesterday we were supposed to go out for the day but we it ended up that we couldn’t go last minute. So we waited in, then nipped out then went back to mine.

We grabbed food and planned an early night watching all of the Pirates of the Caribbean films. That didn’t go to plan as we both nodded off at like 5, and didn’t wake up until 10.. We ended up pulling a quilt onto the sofa and watching Final destination 5.. I didn’t even know there was 5.. Confirmed: Shouldn’t be 5. It was awful..

We went to bed and agreed to stay up really late so we’d both have a lay in. 10 minutes later i was asleep.. and woke up at 10 this morning. Absolute nightmare.

Today we’ve sat and watched so much rubbish on TV, done a tiny bit of online shopping for our new bedroom (mostly me, mostly fairy lights and cute stuff)

I’ve sorted out my funding and confirmed my Uni course to start in July and Dan’s sat and played football manager.. ALL Day.

We vaguely moved. I went downstairs and made us breakfast. Dan had eggy bread and a fry up.. ( he didn’t cook this…)IMG_7344

I had fried bacon, sausages and cinnamon french toast COVERED and cooked in syrup.. it was lush. IMG_7339

We’ve literally been moving our room around, sorting bits out and being lazy for the entire day. It’s been bliss. Looking outside I’m kinda feeling like we’ve wasted the day, but  I wouldn’t have changed a single part of it.. My mums been coming to talk to us all day too, trying to persuade us to move and do something fun.. yeah, no.

Now were finally going to put Pirates of the Caribbean on (Dan’s never seen any of these.. weird right?) and order a takeaway.

Literally, a perfect Sunday before working until 2am tomorrow..

The Dream Of A Lazy Sunday..

IMG_7010

So! I went out last night. I’m a massive lightweight and after 3 drinks and propping myself up against what i thought was a cupboard (it was actually a freezer) it was time to go home and go to bed..

Waking up this morning my mom thought it would be an amazing idea to spend quality time together which included me taking her to a garden centre and cleaning my car out..

All I wanted to do was lay in bed, plan a new blog and watch way, way, wayyyy too much TV / Netflix.

Everything i’ve watched series wise is always recommended by other people and 9/10 times I really enjoy it! Heres some of my recommendations for a lazy Sunday…

Pretty Little Liars

IMG_6996

Pretty little liars has 7 seasons. The first to third season is REALLY good. You’ll be totally hooked. Then you kinda have to keep watching until it gets really interesting again at season 6. We’re currently on season 7.

Alison goes missing everyone thinks she’s dead, i literally can’t say anything else other than there’s a bad guy called A. We find out who A is, the girls go through SO much drama and hate… and then theres another A, but this is now A.D. Theres 2 episodes left of season 7 when we finally find out who A.D is.

It’s a VERY long process but it’s good and fully worth the watch!

Gossip Girl

IMG_6997

Gossip girl has 6 seasons. First you’ll love Nate and hate Chuck. Then You’ll hate Serena and love Blair. The Love Hate you’ll find yourself having with these characters is insane. Dan is from the lower east side and the others are from the Upper east side.

All their lives are documented on Gossip Girl, which is an online website that also texts and emails out news and gossip about people.

It’s good watch with a lot of heart-break. And before the end you WILL fall in love with Chuck Bass and cry… ALOT.

Riverdale
IMG_6998

I’m currently watching Riverdale on Netflix and I’m on season 1. Theres one more episode of this season but there’s been SO much drama so far.

Jason blossom is missing, he turns up dead. Murders with the serpents, incest families, broken relationships and Coopers Vs Blossoms, FP, Jughead, overprotective parents, guns, bribes and yet loads more. Riverdale is my go to at the moment and there’s new episodes every Friday on Netflix.

Prison Break
IMG_6999

Theres currently 5 seasons of prison break. The first season in my opinion is the best one. It’s hard to keep watching it, and it gets a little boring on season 3-4. It’s a good watch, I think i just like more dramatic stuff..

90210
IMG_7002

90210 has 5 seasons too. It’s a remake of Beverly Hills 90210.

Basically, a tight-knight circle of friends from West Beverly high school have a lot of drama. Someone kills someone, there’s a psycho boyfriend, they graduate, get into music careers, end up skint, some more psychos, confused sexuality,. a fake drowning and ALOT of marriages.

It pulls on heart-strings and takes a while to watch. It doesn’t have any boring bits and is 100% worth the watch.

13 Reasons Why
IMG_7003

So far there’s only 1 season of 13 reasons why, but Netflix has confirmed a new season coming in 2018.

13 Reasons why is about a girl named Hannah baker. She commits suicide and leaves tapes about people and the reason why she did it.

It’s REALLY emotional. Me and my friend Ryan cried repeatedly though this.

I wrote a blog post about it too, the links here – https://pretty66.com/2017/04/11/13-reasons-why-massive-spoiler-alert/ – if you’re sensitive, over emotional or just don’t have time to watch it, take a read instead.

This will break your heart over and over again.. it shows how so many smaller things can add up and make you feel like utter shit, on top of massive things too.

iZombie

IMG_7004

Theres currently 3 seasons of iZombie. At first i wasn’t looking forward to it. The first few episodes were a bit blah. I kept watching and was so glad i did!

Basically Liv is a normal person, goes on a boat party and turns into a zombie.

Her life changes and she turns into a zombie works in a morgue.

She helps the police solve crimes by eating parts of the victims brains… with noodles and hot sauce.

I’m unsure what this is classed as… but I’m gonna go with a comedy.

Orange is the new black

IMG_7005

There is currently 4 seasons of OITNB on Netflix.

It’s good, don’t get me wrong. The first season you get to know all the characters and why they’re in prison. I enjoyed it until half way through the second season, then got kinda bored. I think this is just me though, i found it really like, all the same? Everyone else raves about it though and my brothers girlfriend Alex loves it..

One Tree Hill
IMG_7007

Theres 9 seasons of one tree hill, YEAH 9!

It’s not on Netflix but I’ve got the box sets and re-watch them ALL the time.

In the early seasons it’s all about the relationship between Lucas and Nathan Scott who have the same dad but different moms and are in the same year at school.  They start out as enemies but bond. Lucas gets a place in the School basket ball team with the help of his uncle Keith (their dad’s brother).  Nathan, the captain, hates Lucas, and this becomes the basis of their rivalry. Lucas’s fancies Nathan’s girlfriend Peyton who Nathan treats like dirt (she’s also a massive Emo kid) also strengthens their feud. Peyton’s best friend Brooke tries to date Lucas, and Nathan attempts to date Lucas’s best friend Hayley to get back at him The story of Lucas and Nathan’s father Dan is occasionally explored through flashbacks (he’s a massive bellend).

Throughout the seasons you see school shootings, drama, break-ups, teen marriages & pregnancies. Then there’s a 4 year time jump and they’re all grown up!

There is a psycho nanny who tries to take Jamie (a child), another shooting, deaths, births, you get so attached to certain characters too. it’s amazing!

I 1000% recommend this, you WON’T get bored!

SUITS

IMG_7009

Theres currently 6 seasons of Suits. (7th is coming in July 2017)

Every time I say how much i enjoy Suits everyone gets really shocked. I kinda think this is cause it’s the opposite of something that I’d usually watch.

While running from a drug deal gone wrong, Mike (who has a photographic memory), is a young college-dropout, slips into a job interview with one of New York’s best Law firms and one of the partners is Harvey. Harvey takes a gamble by hiring Mike on the spot after he recognizes his raw talent and photographic memory. Mike and Harvey are a winning team. Even though Mike is a genius, he never went to Harvard. While Harvey may seem like an emotionless dick, Mike’s sympathy and concern for their cases and clients will help remind Harvey why he started and went into law in the first place. Mike’s other allies in the office include the firm’s paralegal Rachel and Harvey’s assistant Donna. Proving to be an irrepressible duo and invaluable to the practice, Mike and Harvey must keep their secret from everyone including managing partner Jessica. Theres also Lewis too, he HATES Harvey.

In Suits you watch them continuously cover up Mike’s secret and a lot of fall out’s and make ups.

Suits is one of my favourites and it’s definitely one to binge watch! You can re watch it over and over again without getting bored too!

So yeah! If any of you need any recommendations to binge watch I recommend the majority of these! – Time to get my stuff ready for work tomorrow and re-watch Riverdale.
