Steal Their Style: Gigi Hadid

Today I am starting a new series on my blog and that series is 'Steal Their Style' where I will pick a celebrity and find items based on their outfit for you so you can steal their style yourself. First up for this series we have Gigi Hadid. I had to start with Gigi Hadid because I think her style is one of the most amazing stand out styles of any celebrity at the moment. She is always out and about with a new striking outfit with pieces that just shouldn't go together in theory but she makes them work. 

To see the items I have picked just click on the outfit and they will appear underneath. To see more of the outfits click on the big + button. Let me know in the comments below which is your favourite Gigi Hadid outfit from the ones I have shown (Mine is the all yellow outfit) and also please leave some suggestions for other celebrity styles you would like me to steal in future posts.

36 TV Shows I Love To Watch In 2018


Today's post is a little different to my usual ones. As I mentioned I am branching out more to include Travel & Lifestyle posts so today's is a list of 26 TV Shows I Love Watching In 2018.  I'm a huge fan of watching TV shows, so this list isn't everything I have seen but it is all the shows I'm currently watching, with the exception of one or two that may have been cancelled or finished airing at the time of this post.

Supernatural 
Of course Supernatural has to come first. It is the show I have been watching the longest (ever since it started) and is also a show I used to be able to quote time and time again from the earlier seasons. This will be forever known as my favourite TV show of all time and Sam and Dean along with Castiel and Crowley will be my favourite TV characters of all time.
 Game Of Thrones
I think almost everybody with a working TV or Internet watches Game Of Thrones right?! If not have you been living under a rock? This was one of those shows that I didn't think I would enjoy and it did take me four episodes to get into it (I almost gave up) but once I was into it I was hooked. A must watch. FYI, My fave character is of course Daenerys.

Teen Wolf
A teen supernatural show to fill the void of The Vampire Diaries although I believe it has finished now. Still there is 6 seasons to get through. So I suggest you begin your binge now.  
Daredevil
I am a huge superhero and comic book character fangirl which is what you may notice if you read down the rest of this list and Daredevil is a good place to start for the Marvel TV shows that pepper Netflix. Wilson Fisk makes for a great character in season 1 and The Punisher is great in season 2.
 Jessica Jones
I've just finished binging the second season of this as we speak. She is basically an alcoholic, leather jacket wearing bad-ass who is a PI and has super strength. 
 Luke Cage
I wasn't as huge a fan of this as some of the other Marvel shows but I still enjoyed watching it and seeing how Luke Cage came to be. He is bullet-proof and has super strength. He first makes an appearance in Jessica Jones.
 Iron Fist
This is a probably my favourite Marvel TV character because his superpower was a little cooler than the rest and wasn't something that had necessarily been done to him by some big bad evil thing, but rather by channelling his Chi. He practices Wing Chun which I would have had no clue about, but is something my boyfriend practices too so that was a really interesting thing to learn more about.
The Defenders
This is basically all the Marvel TV characters coming together. Think Avengers of the TV world. Daredevil, Jessica Jones, Luke Cage & Iron Fist, so I suggest you watch all their single shows first before watching this. Also be sure to look out for all the Stan Lee poster cameos in each show.
 
The Punisher
A somewhat villian from the second season of Daredevil who is actually a really awesome character. He's got issues, he likes killing and he misses his family. 
Marvels Agent's Of S.H.I.E.L.D
I've loved where this show has gone season after season. Always somewhere new and exciting. Plus cameo's from some of the Marvel Universe movie characters.


The Expanse
This is one I binged through recently and have really enjoyed. It's set in Space, on Earth and on Mars with rising tensions between the three groups along with a alien disease that could wipe everyone out.
 Jane The Virgin
I thought I wouldn't like this show when I first saw it advertised which is why it took me around 3 years to start watching it but it turned out to be a super cute show. It starts with Jane who is a virgin being accidentally artificially inseminated. It still has it's cringy dramatic moments, what with it being in the style of a Telenovela but I've kind of got used to that now which is part of it's charm.
  Arrow
This is the start of the DC TV show characters now. I told you I was a fangirl. Oliver Queen was lost on an island for five years and comes back as a vigilante. He is also amazing with a bow and arrow. Slade Wilson/Deathstroke is a damn cool character is season 1.
 The Flash
I Think The Flash is my favourite of the DC characters in these shows because his powers are just so cool. It's technically one thing (he can run fast) but it has so many uses and can be used in so many different ways (i.e. time travel among other things). If anyone ever asks me what superpower I want I always say the same as The Flash.
Supergirl
Cousin of Superman. Took me a little while to get into this and it wasn't until she was crossing over with the other shows that I did start watching it properly. 

Legends Of Tomorrow
I love this one because it's part of the DC world and the characters just mesh so well together. It is super funny and they have great banter (I hate that word though) They travel through time to major events in history to fix time anomolies.
Degrassi: Next Class
This is the new class of Degrassi which is basically set in a high school and they deal with many different issues within each episode such as racism, homophobia, drug addiction and other relatable issues. It was originally how Drake got famous. 

Girlboss
This one is based off the early life of the Nasty Gal clothing brand creator Sophia Amoruso and how the brand came to be. It was a really interesting story but unfortunately was cancelled after the first season.
Shadowhunters: The Mortal Instruments
Shadowhunters is based off the book series of the same name which again is a supernatural teen show. It is slightly cringy at times with some of the acting but still enjoyable. I'm not entirely sure how much it differs from the books as I have only read the first two or three in the series so far.

Atypical
Atypical is completely different to anything I have ever watched before as the main character has Autism. So we see him trying to navigate his life to find a girlfriend. It is a great show that brings more attention to Autism.
 iZombie
The main character gets turned into a zombie but not quite in the mindless, must kill everybody vibe, she still has to eat brains to survive but she works in a morgue so has easy access. The brains give her visions of the dead persons life hence why she starts working as an assistant to a police officer.
Riverdale
This is the latest teen craze at the moment and I must say I am super into it. It's set in a small town in America where a student has been murdered. The first season is mostly about trying to work out who his killer is along with the usual teen show stories of friendships, relationships, sex etc.
Dynasty
Dynasty is a remake of an older show that I believe was around in the 80's. It basically follows the lives of a super rich family who have several secrets. This is another of the shows that I'm really into at the moment and can't get enough of each week.
Black Lightning
Another superhero one, this time in the form of a black, high school principal who can harness electricity and again is a wanted vigilante. It's a pretty cool show that I'm still getting into.
Brooklyn Nine-Nine
I don't watch many half hour comedy type shows so Brooklyn Nine-Nine is a bit of an exception. I find I laugh at least once every episode and tend to binge watch a season over a few days at a time. It also stars Andy Samberg which is the reason I started watching it.
Black Mirror
I'm not entirely sure how to explain this one. It's set around how technology screws with our lives. Each episode is a stand alone story about a certain subject. My favourite episode was probably S3 Ep1 the features Bryce Dallas Howard. It's a definite must watch as it is kind of mind bending and psychological.
 Timeless
Timeless is one of those shows I randomly came across on Netflix that sounded intriguing. It stars Matt Lanter (From 90210) which is what originally drew me towards it. It is set around a time-travelling group of people who are chasing someone through time. It goes back to major events in history.
 Santa Clarita Diet
This one stars Drew Barrymore who is a zombie housewive. Again she is not a mindless zombie but she does need brains to eat. This is a charming, fun little show and the second season has arrived on just arrived on Netflix.
Younger
Hilary Duff was the reason I started watching this. It is about a 30 something mother who can't get a job in publishing so pretends to be a 20 something.
Quantico
The main characters all started FBI training in Quantico and a terrorist attack has gone off. It's one of those shows that you have to guess who has done it from all the clues given.
 13 Reasons Why
 This is based off the book of the same name about a girl who commits suicide but leaves behind tapes with reasons why she did it. It's an interesting concept and definitely shines light on suicide.
The 100
 Another show based off a book series. The 100 starts off in space after the earth became unliveable. It's been a couple of hundred years I believe and they send down 100 criminal kids to test the earth and what they find isn't quite what they expected. It is such an awesome teen show that definitely deserves a watch.
Chicago Fire
Based around a firehouse in Chicago. It has spawned 3 spin off shows including Chicago PD, Chicago Med & Chicago Justice.
Project Runway
I had to give a couple of honourable mentions to some reality shows so first up we have Project Runway where a group of people vie to win a place at New York Fashion Week by creating outfits each week with one person getting eliminated. I love seeing the designs every week and my favourite challenges are definitely the Haute Couture and the unconventional materials ones.

America's Next Top Model
And lastly of course I cannot forget America's Next Top Model or ANTM for short. I have been watching this since season 1 and I LOVE it! Tyra Banks is just amazing and I love seeing the creative photo shoots each week.

So thats my list of 36 TV Shows I Love To Watch In 2018. Which of these shows on this list do you watch and what are your favourites? Let me know in the comments below.

14 Exciting Ways to Rediscover Your Love Of Exploring The World

*This is a contributed post.
 
There’s much to love about hopping on a plane and jetting off to a new destination. It’s not just a temporary move to a warmer climate that makes us feel at ease as soon as we land; it’s the opportunity to meet new people, see the sights, and push the boat out when it comes to what we know. Or so goes the idea. We can sometimes fall into the habit of just doing the same old, same old; which is usually, chiefly, sitting outside in the sun and having a beer. While there’s nothing wrong with that - lord knows we’ve done it enough - it can dampen some of what we know about exploring the world. But it doesn’t have to be this way - below, we take a look at a few new and exciting ways that will help us to rediscover our love of exploration. Take our advice, and you’ll be on the fast-track to fun adventures in no time at all.

Curb Your Research

It’s possible to learn everything you need to know about the world...without leaving your home. The internet has done a lot of good for the world, and one of these things is allowing access to every piece of information ever recorded. Pretty impressive, right! But this can also take some of the magic out of discovering a new place. If you’ve read about everything you’re going to see and do at a destination before you arrive, then being there will be more about checking off a list than uncovering a different culture. Next time you’re going somewhere, consider just jumping in and seeing what you find when you land and resist doing all of your research before. Everything will be exciting when you don’t know what to expect.

Avoid Flying

The prevalence of cheap flights has made travelling accessible to people from all backgrounds, and that’s something that would have been unthinkable just a few decades ago. Most people, when they’re looking to travel, simply check the airlines and find out how far on a plane their budget will take them. But flying isn’t the only way to get from A. to B. - people were moving around for thousands of years before the invention of the plane. There’s a real magic to be had in moving by ferry or train - one of its chief virtues is that you’re able to see the land that you’re crossing (unlike a plane, which only allows you to see the clouds).

Stick Out a Thumb

For the more adventurous traveller, there’s always hitchhiking. There are few things more exciting than sticking out a thumb and seeing a kindly stranger slow down their vehicle to pick you up. This obviously requires a much greater degree of flexibility than if you were going by plane, and isn’t recommended if you absolutely have to be somewhere at a set time - but if it’s just a loose adventure that you’re looking for, then go for it. You’ll meet people from all walks of life, and you’ll remember that the world is a pretty kind place overall!

Change Your Accommodation Type

We are creatures of habit, and sometimes that means that we end of staying in the same hotels over and over again. But if you're stuck in a chain hotel loop, then why not consider mixing it up and picking somewhere new? Wherever you’re going, there’s going to be a wide range of unique hotels and hostels available, and each will have a greater impact on your enjoyment of your trip than if you’re just checking in to the same standard issue hotel room that you’ve already spent many a night in.

Under the Stars

But then again, who says you need to stay in traditional accommodation at all? If you’re committed to staying in a hotel, then you’re going to be fairly limited when it comes to the type of views and surroundings you have nearby. Instead, consider camping. It’s easy enough to organise, and there are campsites all over Europe that’ll provide views and experiences that a hotel just can’t give you. Read more here, and spend your time away from home sleeping under the stars. There’s no adventure quite like the great outdoors.

Search, Book, Go

Spontaneity lies at the heart of all great travel experiences. In today’s digital age, it has never been easy to book a last minute journey. Take a look online, see what flights are going where, and, if they’re not too expensive, book them and head to the airport. This works especially well as you’ll have no expectations for your trip - you’re simply going for fun. Even if the chosen destination ends up being not to your taste, who cares? You’ve lost nothing - and in the process, you’ve gained a pretty awesome story.

Local Projects

When it comes to travelling, most people take a look at a destination and think about what it can give them. But there is another way to look a place, and that is by asking: what can I give back? All over the world, there are fascinating, positive projects that need enthusiastic people to volunteer some of their time. Next time you’re planning to go overseas, take a look at websites like Helpx.net or Workaway.info, look for a project that you’d like to get involved in, and go. This has the added benefit of being an inexpensive way of travelling; in exchange for a few hours of your time, you’ll be given accommodation and food. And more than that, you might just learn a new skill.

Pick a Theme

People take a trip to a new country and visit all the popular highlights that it has to offer, but what if you have no particular interest in the most popular attractions? It happens a fair bit in cities - people wander around museums and art galleries because they think they should; they don’t even visit the museums and galleries in their hometown, so why visit them just because you’re overseas? Instead, focus on what you do like, and build your trip around that interest. You could take a literary tour through the childhood of your favourite author, or go on a culinary tour through Italy, for example. You’ll be interested every step of the way, and will leave your travels with a much deeper understanding and appreciation of your interest.

Travel Solo

Everything is fun when you’re doing it with other people, but that doesn’t mean that doing things without other people isn’t fun! When you’re travelling with friends, it’s easy to fall into doing the same thing that you’d do at home; when you’re on your own, you’re forced to meet new people and decide for yourself what you want to do, without compromise. It can seem a little scary, but you’ll find that there was nothing to fear once you’re out there on the road.

Try a New Activity

There are a million and one things you can try across the world, why not give one of them a go? For example, you could finally check out your skiing abilities, or see what life is like under the sea by snorkelling. The good thing about doing an activity when abroad is that you get to view the natural beauty of the area, all the while doing something that’s immensely fun.

Wildlife Over Humans

Most of our travel revolves, in one way or another, other humans: how they life, the food they cook, and so on. But what about the other creatures with whom we share the planet? There’s nothing quite as inspiring as seeing one of Africa’s Big Five in their natural environment or seeing the colourful birds of the rainforest zipping around over your head. Next time, devote your trip to the wonderful wildlife - you’re sure to be awestruck by what you see.

Attend an Event

There’s no greater way to understand a destination than to see it full-on celebration mode. To see this, you need to visit during an event, be it sporting, cultural, a festival, or anything else. There are awesome events taking place all over Europe and the rest of the world throughout the year, so try to combine your travels with one of them. It can be something like a Feria celebration in Spain or a massive music festival, but whatever you choose, you’ll find an atmosphere that’s unlike anything else you’ll have experienced.

Cultural Shock

It’s not easy to be shocked anymore, even when we’re travelling. If you’re in Europe or a beach destination, then you know more or less what to expect. But cultural shock does still exist; if you don’t believe us, book a flight to one of India’s biggest cities. You’ll quickly feel like the world has been turned upside down (in a mostly good way, of course).

The Wonder of Nature

Finally, don’t forget about nature. If you want to fall in love with travelling and the world again, simply take a trip to one of the natural wonders of the world!

Let me know in the comments below which of these ways you would like to try or any you have already done.
