Music Mondays | September 28th 2015

Hi all,
I have a definite favorite on my playlist this week. Battles by Hudson Taylor. It's a song I've been hitting repeat on, and dancing around too. It's a really great song to just jump up and down to, which I did a lot of today, until my health condition decided to make me stop, and I wound up collapsing. Oh well. The slower songs work to chill me out when I'm feeling unwell, so this mix has the perfect song for energetic moments, and moments when I need to be lying in bed.
So have a listen, and let me know which song is your favorite.

That's (P)interesting | 10 Nail Looks I Love

Hi all,
I wanted to start a new feature here on Messy Little Moments, because I love Pintrest. I spend so much time putting together boards, and browsing awesome posts. So I wanted to share some of the things that I find. 
To start off with, I thought I'd share with you ten different nail looks that I absolutely adore. I'm not fantastic at nail art, but I want to get better, and these looks are my inspiration. Varying in style, and difficulty levels. All of these designs caught my eye, and I just had to pin them. Take a look and let me know which ones you love.
Also, be sure to subscribe to my site via email or bloglovin', to follow what else I'm loving on Pintrest.
Here's a sneak peak of the looks.

Tv Tuesdays | Downton Abbey | Beginning of the End

Hi all,
Just as a warning, if you're not caught up to the current episode shown in the UK. Please be aware there will be spoilers ahead.
This past weekend saw the start of the final series of Downton Abbey. I've been a fan of the show since the very beginning, and so it's sad to see it coming to an end. However, I do feel as if it's time to let this one go. 
What was, in the first two seasons, an incredible show and one of my favorites, has in my opinion lost some of its appeal in later seasons. This is largely in part, to the departure of some of my favorite characters. However, I was still pleased to have it back, and I am looking forward to seeing how it all ends.
As far as the first episode goes. I think it did a good job of laying out what the main storylines will be over the course of the final season. Each key character has a little something going on, from the upcoming wedding of Carson and Mrs Hughes to Edith and Mary both breaking out on their own in their individual ways, tackling the working world either at home or away from it.
There seem to be some interesting things on the horizon, and already I was getting ideas in my head about how all of the storylines will tie off.
No doubt, this season will see some love interests cropping up for Mary, and possibly even Edith, who up until this point, has not been doing well in the love department. Here's hoping she'll get a better ride in the last season. It's about time she had some positivity in her storylines.
I'd like to believe we've seen the end of the deaths, but this is Downton, so I'm not counting anything out just yet. 
All in all, I liked the first episode, and found myself laughing out loud on more than one occasion, which was nice after some serious heart wrenching episodes in the past.
I'm looking forward to the rest of the season, and depending on how things go and if I have things to say, I may be writing more about the season before it's over.
For now, I'll just say that I'm happy to have Downton back on the screen.

Tv Tuesdays | Pretty Little Liars: Change is Coming (Spoilers)

Hi all, 
Today I wanted to talk a little about one of my favorite shows, Pretty Little Liars. This post will contain spoilers for the most recent shown season, so if you don't want anything spoiled, then please don't continue to read.
I'm not going to be doing a review of this show, though in the future, I may, but for this post I wanted to focus on the ending of season 6a. The last episode Game Over, Charles, is I would say the most anticipated episode ever. The answers we got in that episode were one after the other, and for the most part I thought it was a fantastic episode.
However, I want to voice my opinions about the ending. The five year time skip, was entirely unexpected to me, and I don't quite know what to think about it.
On the one hand, I understand why they're doing it, because the ages the girls were getting to, graduating and heading off to college, it would have been difficult to keep things going. So in that sense I do get why they're moving things ahead. However, a five year time skip, feels like we're going to lose a lot of the storyline from the current timeline. Though we got a lot of answers, it didn't all feel well wrapped up. There are still a lot of questions, and reactions I'd like to see.
They never did deal with the girls moms, all being locked in the basement. So I guess we just assume they got out, and we won't get to see their reactions, or the girls to everything that happened.
Moving ahead so much, I also wonder about the sub plots. The relationships, which we've spent five and a half seasons watching develop, and now we're skipping so much time, that things will have changed drastically.
I'll admit, I'm intrigued about how this skip is going to play out, what it is that's brought the girls back together, and how well they'll go into what happened while they were all away from Rosewood. However, I do have my concerns, and top among them, is that the series won't be as good with such a drastic change, as it has been to this moment.
What do you think? Are you looking forward to the time skip? Or do you have some concerns?

TV Tuesdays | Community

Hi all,
I wanted to start a new weekly segment based around TV shows, as there are a lot of great shows out there, and I like watching/talking about them. So this week, I'm going to be talking about one of my most recent watches/obsessions, Community.

 I got into this show, after my brother recommended it to me, while I was looking for something to watch on Netflix. It's a show that I've known about for a long time, and often considered watching, but never actually did. I once watched the first half of the first episode, but something made me stop and I didn't go back. So this time, I decided to watch it and give it a longer trial than half an episode.
I am so glad that I did.
Often with me, when I find a new show that I love, I kind of binge watch it until I run out, and this is exactly what happened here. Before I knew it, I had watched all six seasons, and I was desperately wanting more.
Community has a great group of characters, all played to perfection, who really pull you into the show.
This is honestly one of the funniest shows I've seen, and the sheer level of randomness is outstanding. So if you love quirky comedies, then this one is definitely for you.

At the moment, there are six seasons, and it's currently uncertain if there will be a seventh, or even a possible movie. I have to say, I am completely on board with a new season or a movie or both, because I do not want this to end.
My favorite character in the show has to be Abed, he's one of the quirkiest and TV/Movie obsessed, with a lot of awesome quotes and pop culture references.
The biggest reason I want more, though, is Jeff and Annie. I could not love those two more, and I do not feel like their story is over. In my head it definitely isn't because in my head, they are perfect for one another. 
Basically, I loved this show, for all it's insanely random moments. The paintball episodes, the very creative animated episodes. This is the kind of show where you think it can't get any weirder, and then it does, and you love that it does.
I highly recommend this show. It's definitely one that I'll go back to and re-watch, especially all my favorite episodes.
