Will they, won’t they? The best TV couples #1

By now it comes as no surprise to you that I prefer fantasy over reality, and although will they, won’t they couples in real life are exhausting, they make the best storylines in TV series.

Here are my favourites:

Joey & Pacey (Dawson’s Creek)

Series 3 and 4 of Dawson’s Creek are the best purely because of the Joey and Pacey plot – he bought her a wall, watched her while she slept (in a non-creepy way) and bought her chocolate after they actually slept together.

The writers of the show did write and film two endings when Dawson’s Creek reached its final season – and though it was always believed that Joey would end up with Dawson, we all got the finale we wanted.

Blair & Chuck (Gossip Girl)

Never have there been two characters more perfect for each other – the Blair and Chuck love story was full of twists, turns and scheming a-plenty – but despite princes, enough peonies to last a lifetime and a heartbreaking trade, it finally happened.

Three words, eight letters. One word, three letters.

Dan & Serena (Gossip Girl)

It had to be Dan and Serena – six series filled with so many on/off moments, but in the end all was revealed with Dan inventing Gossip Girl to make himself known to the girl of his dreams.

You’ve got the love Lonely Boy, xoxo.

Ross & Rachel (Friends)

The original will they, won’t they couple. There was closure, prom videos, being on a break and babies – Ross and Rachel were each other’s lobsters.

She got off the plane. Yay!

Tim & Dawn (The Office)

Just phenomenal. I was a little late to The Office party, but the Tim and Dawn story completely broke my heart. I’m glad I watched it all in one go as I don’t think I could’ve coped waiting each week.

This scene is sheer brilliance, enhanced by one of the greatest songs ever – Only YouHere’s to holding out for my own Tim.

Say Anything…

Well if you’re an avid reader of this here blog (and we know that you are) you will know that myself and Miss Keeling are very much into our 80s retro – be it movies, music or the fashion.

We would have given anything to be teenage’s in 1980s America. A simpler time, when men were chivalrous, perms were trendy and DeLoreans could fly (okay, maybe not the last bit).

My view may be somewhat skewed, seeing as though I was born in 1989 in good ol’ England, and my only knowledge is from the movies I have grown up watching.

As I grew into a slightly misguided teen, those movies gave me hope for what my future may hold. And, as this year is the 25th anniversary of one of my favourite movies starring John Cusack, Say Anything, here is everything I have ever wanted, or learned, from the best movies of all time.

1. Say Anything


I want just one guy to blast Peter Gabriel from a boombox outside my bedroom window.

2. Ghost


I hope to love someone with my entire being, so much that they come back to haunt my ass.

3. Pretty in Pink


I really do wish we could start old and grow young. Youth is wasted on the young after all.

4. Back to the Future


I want a DeLorean, a hover board and THE Nikey’s.

5. Top Gun


There is something utterly delicious about a man in uniform – seriously, Goose, Maverick or Iceman will do.

6. Stand by Me


“Suck my fat one” is always an excellent come back.

7. The Breakfast Club


Hate to break it to you kids, but I learnt the hard way – detention in naughties England, NOT like this. I just so wish that it was.

8. Ferris Bueller’s Day off


And skiving off school the day is not as productive as this. We don’t have art galleries, parents with vintage cars nor parades for no apparent reason in Telford. Some of us had to make do with the local park/bus stop.

9. Ghostbusters           


There could potentially be another world with a dark demon literally chillin’ in your fridge. Helps me avoid the midnight snacking…

10. Footloose


Teenagers have no sense of rhythm, and it is very hard to find a bloke to dance with who doesn’t just want to grab some ass.

Fashion Faves #1: F&F

Every Friday I used to have the pleasure of taking Momma Keeling to Tesco – the only thing that stopped me from having a weekly mental breakdown in the cake aisle was the clothes section.

F&F has some amazing picks and my wardrobe is filled with a fair few. So, if you ever find yourself questioning your life in Tesco, wander over to the clothing aisle – a new dress is much better than a breakdown.

Mani Monday #19

Over the past week, I have caved into getting an Xbox One (let’s not start a whole argument over which console is better)…

We are an Xbox household – clearly now until death apparently. Therefore, Can you guess what this week’s inspiration had to be?

I’ve been dying to practice my free hand even though I lack the proper equipment (Mum, Models Own just brought out a nail art set and my birthday is soon…).

In fairness, my fine paint brush trimmed isn’t too shabby but we always seek perfection.

Xbox One Mani Monday

To fulfil my mister’s desires, I pulled out my black nail varnish with full knowledge of it’s staining ability. To help replicate the matte vs gloss look on the Xbox controller, I turned to my Essie Matte About You topcoat.

I love matte nails and its so effective with black varnish. It’s not perfect I know, but it’s not a bad first attempt and if it’s enough to inspire others to pick up a brush then I’m happy.

We would love to see your nail art too, send over your quirky designs for us to share!
