Summer Favourites: Movies and TV Shows

Wednesday, August 26, 2015 Sara Wallflower 18 Comments

Hello everybody!

Since I don't have much time to just relax and watch TV during the school year, I've decided to watch as many TV series and movies from my 'Movies to watch list' as I can. And I've decided to share with you some of my favourites. Also, am I the only one who adds a movie to a list after seeing a quote/ gif/ photo on Tumblr?

TV series:

Orange Is the New Black

The series is based on Piper Kerman's memoir, Orange Is the New Black: My Year in a Women's Prison. You've probably already wacthed it or you've heard a lot of reviews about it, so I'm not going to bore you with the story. If you read my last post, you probably know that one of my favourite characters is Stella (Ruby Rose), even though she's a supporting role. I kind of love all of the characters, almost all of their stories are really interesting, but beside Stella, my two favourites are also Miss Claudette and Flaca (She loves The Smiths, I love The Smiths- what else can I say?). I've binge watched OITNB (I'm not the only one, right?) and now I just can't wait for 2016. But if Stella, Bennett and Nicky won't appear in season 4- I'm not sure if I'm emotionally stable enough to handle this.

Faking It

Faking it is about Karma and her best friend Amy, which in attempt to become popular, pretend to be a couple. Just like OITNB, I've binge watched this series, which also shows I don't have a life. I like Amy, I don't like Karma that much, so you can guess I ship #reamy way more than #karmy. Also on August 31st will air the second half of season 2, so I'm really excited about that.

Movies:

Her

I'm not the biggest fan of sci-fi movies, but I'm really glad I've decided to watch this one (thanks to Tumblr). I loved the story, I loved all of the characters, J. Phoenix was simply amazing. I did watch this movie in two parts, because my attention span is quite short. My favourite parts of the movie were definitely the throwbacks.

Around the Block

I was stalking Ruby Rose (now I sound like a stalker), when I found out that she plays in a movie called Around the block and of course I instantly decided to watch it. I've never heard about it before, but then I saw that Christina Ricci plays in it and since she's a great actress, I thought that the movie has to be at least decent. Although Ruby appears for only about 3 minutes (what a shame), I loved it. The story about an Aboriginal boy was really touching, and I found it rather interesting and unique- at least I haven't watched a movie like this before.

Blue Is the Warmest Colour

A French drama revolves around Adèle and a blue- haired girl, Emma. I had to read the plot a few times before I really understood the whole story, but then I just couldn't stop watching the movie (okay, I watched it in two parts, but who can watch a movie for 3 hours?). I also cried while watching it- a lot. And I don't cry often. The chemistry between Exarchopoulos and Seydoux is just indescribable. I have to say that Blue is the warmest colour is probably now one of my favourite movies ever. 

The Breakfast Club

The movie revolves around five teenagers, each a member of a different high school clique who end up in detention together. I wanted to watch this movie for so long, so I'm glad that I've finally decided to do so. My favourite character is probably Allison, the reclusive outcast, who is also a compulsive liar.

Trust

Trust is about a teenage girl who becomes a victim of sexual abuse when she meets a man on the Internet. When I started watching this movie all I could think of was how can a girl be so stupid, but shortly after I realised it’s not her fault and the story of how her and her family’s life changed after really touched me. I loved the movie even though the end made me slightly upset- I don’t want to spoil too much, so I guess you’ll just have to watch a movie.

Love, Rosie

I’ve wanted to watch Love, Rosie ever since I first saw a trailer on YouTube, but over time I’ve somehow forgotten about this movie. But again, thanks to Tumblr, I saw a photo from the movie and this was obviously a sign that I have to watch it. So, I love Lily and I love Sam and I admit I cried a little while watching their love story.

What are your favourite TV shows or movies? Have you watched any of my favourites already?

Love, Sara Wallflower

TMI Tag

Saturday, August 15, 2015 Sara Wallflower 16 Comments

Hello everybody!

While I was thinking what my next post should be about, I’ve realised that some of my latest posts are definitely not my favourite. Don’t get me wrong- I enjoyed writing them and I would never post something I wouldn’t feel comfortable posting, I just think that they don’t show much of my personality. I mean, you sure can learn what kind of books I love to read from my Favourites posts or you can see what kind of clothes I love from my Wishlists, but for this post, I’ve wanted to simply write some things about me, so you’ll be able to understand me a bit. I thought I’d write some facts about me, but since coming up with random facts can be quite difficult, I’ve decided I’d use the questions from TMI Tag (I changed some of the questions about YouTube to questions about blogging). That kind of makes me a lazy person (okay, this is one random fact about me), but I’m on summer holiday now, so you can’t really blame me.

Questions:

What are you wearing?
As I said I’m on summer holiday, so right now I’m wearing old shorts and top.

Have you ever been in love?
As shocking as it might seem since I’m 17, no.

Have you ever had a terrible break up?
No.

How tall are you?
I’m 158 cm (5ft 2).

How much do you weigh?
I’m not really sure.

Any tattoos?
No.

Any piercings?
For now I only have my ears pierced (I have two on my left ear and four on my right ear).

OTP?
Definitely Amy and Reagan from Faking it, I just can’t wait for the second half of the season 2.

What is your favourite show?
I watch way too many shows, but I’d have to say Orange Is the New Black, Faking It, Criminal Minds, House, Modern Family and Awkward.

Who are your favourite bands?
The Smiths, Years & Years, Kodaline, Of Monsters and Men, Snow Patrol, Everything Everything, HAIM, The Lumineers, Hurts, The Kooks.

Something you miss?
I’m not sure if I miss anything at the moment.

Favourite song?
Again, there are too many songs, but at the moment I love these: Everything Everything- Duet, Hayley Kiyoko- Girls Like Girls, Hoobastank- The Reason, Kygo- Stole the Show, Peace- California Daze, Walk Off the Earth- Rule the World, Years & Years- Border.

How old are you?
I’m 17 years old.

Zodiac sign?
Aquarius.

Quality you look for in a partner?
I'm looking for someone with a good sense of humour who will be able to accept me without a will to change me.

What is your favourite quote?
Thanks to Tumblr I have millions of favourite quotes, but I really like this one: I feel nothing or I feel everything. I don’t know which is worse.

Who is your favourite actor?
My all time favourite is Audrey Hepburn.

Favourite colour?
Pink (I’m still not sure why though).

Loud music or soft?
I prefer soft music.

Where do you go when you’re sad?
My bed, that always helps.

How long does it take you to shower? 
From 5- 30 minutes, depends on the time I have.

How long does it take you to get ready in the morning?
During the school week it takes me around 20 minutes, because I sleep as long as I can and then do everything in the last minutes.

Have you ever been in a physical fight?
I don’t really remember.

Turn on’s?
Someone who is funny and can make me laugh even when I’m feeling really down.

Turn off’s?
Pushy people, I just can’t be around them.

The reason I started blogging?
The main reason is boredom, I get all sorts of ideas when I’m bored.

What are your fears?
I’m terrified of the sea, I always have to swim with someone.

Last thing that made you cry?
I cried so many times while watching Blue Is the Warmest Color a few nights ago and that same night I also cried because of a story on Wattpad. I probably cried more times that night than I’ve cried ever before.

Last time you said you loved someone?
I can’t even remember (I’m so cold hearted).

Meaning behind your blog name?
My sister actually chose my name and I really see myself in the definition of the word ‘wallflower’.

You look like the type of person I could adopt a cat with.

Not yet.

Last time you hung out with anyone?
Before I started writing this post I hung up with my father and my cat, but they were both asleep, so I’m not sure if this counts.

Who should answer these questions next?
I tag everyone who reads this, and if you’ll do this tag, don’t forget to send me a link.

Love, Sara Wallflower

Beauties of Bovec 2015

Tuesday, August 04, 2015 Sara Wallflower 10 Comments

Hello everybody!

I spent last week in Bovec, a lovely town in Slovenia. I had an amazing time while hiking, discovering new places and just chilling by the river Isonzo. And instead of posting way too many photos (as I did last year), I’ve decided to make a short vlog. This is my first ever published vlog (I’ve made some before, but just for myself), so I hope you’ll enjoy watching it. 


Love, Sara Wallflower
