Lipstick Jungle

I came across Lipstick Jungle on LoveFilm Instant and after seeing it was similar to Sex and the City (it's form the same writer) and that Kim Raver from Grey's Anatomy was one of the leads, I decided to give it ago. And while it took a while to build, and is still completely unrealistic, I can't help but find some girly guilty pleasure in it am now on season 2 (the final season). 
Not only does the gorgeous Kim Raver (middle) star, but so does Robert Buckley from One Tree Hill. And so it is rather odd flipping from Grey's, to OTH to Lipstick Jungle as the actors crossover: I often get confused who is who!
Lipstick Jungle will certainly not be everybody's cup of tea but I enjoy the female empowerment message. All three of the women are very successful in their own right and that's a great message to put out there. I also love that Wendy (Left) is an executive producer at a movie studio as that is very similar to the path I want to go down. It's a little bit of my dream on screen and it's so addictive to watch!

The Town

Genre: Crime, Drama, Thriller
Runtime: 2hrs 5mins
Plot Synopsis: The Charlestown neighbourhood of Boston is renowned for churning out a high number of armed robbers, generation after generation.  Such robbers include friends Doug MacRay (Affleck), James Coughlin (Renner) who treat each other like family since Doug's mother ran off and Doug's father, Stephen MacRay, was sent to prison. 
With no real attachments, Doug has never had to fear losing anyone close to him. But that all changed on the gang's latest job, when they briefly took bank manager Claire Keesey (Rebecca Hall) hostage, before releasing her unharmed.
Claire is nervously aware that the robbers know her name... and where she lives. But she lets her guard down when she meets an unassuming and rather charming man named Doug... not realising that he is the same man who only days earlier had terrorised her. The instant attraction between them gradually turns into a passionate romance that threatens to take them both down a dangerous, and potentially deadly, path.

January/February 2013: Top 20 (Part 2)

I've got into a lot of rap music at the moment so there's a lot of that in my top 10 as well as some what of a guilty pleasure at number 2 which I've had on repeat blasting in my car! I've never really liked Taylor Swift until recently and this song is definitely one of her catchiest! See you next month...

January/February 2013: Top 20 (Part 1)

Welcome back to Top 20, the first of 2013! I had been taking a break from new music for a while and instead was looking back or catching up on artists such as M.I.A. who I have recently fallen in love with! So this top 20 is a little different than normal as it is a kind of a compilation of the soundtrack of my life for the past couple of months...

The Fray - You Found Me

I'm not sure if I've mentioned it here on Enthralled but for the past few months I've been addicted to lots of new TV shows, most prominent of which is One Tree Hill. I'm currently on season 6 and it's definitely become one of my all-time favourites - I can't get enough of it! Today's Tune of the Day is of a song featured on the show that has reminded me how much I loved it back in the day! It's definitely one of those ballads you can't help but belt along with!
