The Cutest Cup & Saucer

Sunday, August 31st, 2008

laura-ashley-milner-cup-saucer.jpgContinuing on my hunt for apartment accessories I turned to Laura Ashley. Famous for her floral prints and home accessories I was inspired.

I want the Milner Floral Breakfast Cup and Saucer. The bone china set is decorated with pretty floral detailing and would look great in the kitchen with the rest of Laura Ashley’s Milner kitchen ware and it would even make a great gift.

Even better, it’s on sale now, it was £12 but is down to just £9. Visit Laura Ashley online if you’re thinking about renewing some kitchen accessories or looking for gifts for a friends house warming.

The Hills Season 4

Friday, August 29th, 2008

All The Hills fans will be excited to know that The Hills season 4 has been picked up and is airing in the USA on Monday’s on MTV as I write.

Complete with all the drama season 4 see’s Heidi and Spencer reunited, Lauren and Stephanie’s friendship blossom and then burn, Lo and Audrina’s feud get worse and a set of new boys. At the moment all of season 1, 2 and 3 is available to buy on iTunes so it should not be long before season 4 airs in the UK.

Visit MTV and iTunes for more information on episode previews and episodes.

One Tree Hill Season 6

Friday, August 29th, 2008

Just as I got excited by Gossip Girl I realized One Tree Hill was also picked up for a sixth season and begins right after Gossip Girl airs on the CW network on September 1st.

Sadly no information is really given but what I am informed is that we will finally find out who Lucas chooses. WARNING: do not read any further if you have not finished watching the whole of season 5 on E4. To recap season 5 left off with the, in my opinion mean, cliff hanger where Lucas phones someone and asks if they want to get married in Vegas. The scene between him phoning and proposing was Brooke, Peyton and Lindsay all answering the phone but which one did he call? I was on the edge of my seat when I found out he would finally choose the girl of his dreams and cannot wait to find out who it was.

Like Gossip Girl there is no information as to when it will air in the UK but this is simply a heads up that it will start hopefully soon. Visit the CW to see the advertisement for the first episode.

Gossip Girl Season 2

Friday, August 29th, 2008

News just hit me, Gossip Girl is returning for a second season and it begins in the USA on September the 1st on the CW network.

Obviously like every time a new season starts there are plenty of spoilers going round but what I can tell you is that it begins in The Hamptons, New York’s holiday destination of the rich and powerful. Chuck and Blair the ‘meant to be’ couple are off and taking great pleasure in making each other jealous. Nate and Serena after a brief fling over summer are off and on as in the sneak peak and adverts, we see Nate jumping out the window of a married women’s bedroom. Dan has apparently been two timing two women and Little J has been on an internship with Blair’s mum Eleanor. Some how the group all end up attending The White Party where mayhem as expected breaks out.

The above information has come from sneak peaks and the Gossip Girl advertisements that you can find on You Tube and CW online. No word on when it will begin playing in the UK but all I can say is I physically cannot wait!
