Dracula is back and so are the scandals

Personally, I found Dracula very refreshing. It's Gothic with contemporary touch and strong feminist inclination. It's Dracula without "Vampires are so evil" and "Women are women". This change is so drastically shown in the end of the first episode. It's mind boggling. Even if you have read Bram Stoker's Dracula, you are gonna be captured by the twists and originality of the show. Strong plot, great actors and Gorgeous clothes! Definitely must watch.

Last but not the least, the troubled artist Jonathan Rhys Meyer with his history of substance abuse. NBC decided to withheld major part of his salary to make sure that Jonathan completes the 10 episodes of the series soberly. Let's hope he doesn't overdose again and their are many more seasons to come.

Love, Life and Lust

What does it matter what people think?

Be true to yourself

If you keep on changing for people

You wont be able to recognize yourself at the end of the day.

I am bored = Let's EAT!
I am depressed = Let's EAT!
I am confused = Let's EAT!
I am waiting for so long = Let's EAT!
I got good marks = Let's EAT!
I got bad marks = Let's EAT!
I am tired = Let's EAT!

So what to do?
Get a friend. Someone you can talk to. Someone who can say, you really don't need to eat right now. And drink LOTS of water. It fills your tummy and Cleans your body.

There is nothing wrong in eating but over-eating is an issue. So call a friend :-)

Top 5 On-Set Chemistry

Chad Michael Murray and Hilarie Burton
Lucas Scott and Peyton Sawyer

Chad Michael Murray and Hilarie Burton never dated, yet it didn't stop Fans for hoping and wishing that they do. 
Lucas Scott and Peyton Sawyer's overly dramatic, dark and broody on and off relationship was like a diabolical and twisted fairy tale. Damaged Bastard Prince saving Damsel in Distress surrounded by death. Isn't this every screwed-up not-normal teenager's fantasy?

Lucy Hale and Ian Harding
Aria Montgomery and Ezra Fitz

There are "speculations" about Lucy Hale and Ian Harding dating. Personally I think it's more of Fans' wishful interpretation of their friendship but hey! we never know. Officially - they are just very very very very good friends :-)

Emily Rose and Lucas Bryant
Audrey Parker and Nathan Wournos

Lucas Bryant is married to Kirsty Hinchcliffe while Emily Rose is married to Dairek Morgan but this doesn't stop fans to go crazy about Audrey - Nathan Romance. From the First episode they have been so in sync with each other that it's pretty hard to not-wonder if they are actually together.
Patrick Dempsey and Ellen Pompeo
Derek Shepherd and Meredith Grey

Both Dempsey and Pompeo are married though it is their Chemistry that has hooked people to Grey's Anatomy. They are just good friends and nothing "Romantic" is going on between them. Dempsey feels emotionally attached to Ellen while Ellen also feel that they are like brothers and sisters. Of course that makes it really Awkward and Gross for her to kiss and do other stuff with Dempsey. If this is how she feels then she is the GREATEST actress in the world because as an audience I always thought that Derek and Meredith are so in Love!
Ed Westwick and Leighton Meester
Chuck Bass and Blair Waldorf
Why do fans think that Ed and Leigh are together? Well we don't. But if Ed would say stuff like he is Madly in Love with Leigh, it's freaking hard not to speculate. Chuck and Blair share an extraordinary relationship. Their "Dark Sides" are something all of us have come to love so if they are so good on screen one can only wish that they give it a try off screen.

Love, Life, Lust

Love yourself, others will love u too. Don't search for a boyfriend, search for best friends. If you are lucky then one of your best friend will become your boyfriend.

Love, Life, Lust

Boyfriends are not that important, If he isn't truly the one then getting a boyfriend just for the sake of having a boyfriend is an invitation to heartache.

Maroon 5

I fell in love with Maroon 5 after hearing "She will be loved". For almost 4 months I religiously listened to that song on loop and still once in a while I can't resist that song. "She will be loved" was followed by "Won't go home without you", "Through with you" and "Wake up call". That's it, I was forever hooked.

Thankfully songs like "Moves like Jagger" and "One more Night" has kept me a loyal Maroon 5 fan and Adam Levine's grovelling has kept me as a loyal Voice fan. Well his grovelling, t-shirts with holes and tattoos!!

Sadly I have never seen their live performance but fingers crossed.

Best thing about Maroon 5 - Adam Levine's voice and the lyrics of the songs. Love Love Love them..

My Personal Favorites:

So I cross my heart and I hope to die
That I'll only stay with you one more night
And I know I said it a million times
But I'll only stay with you one more night

I don't mind spending every day
Out on your corner in the pouring rain
Look for the girl with the broken smile
Ask her if she wants to stay awhile
And she will be loved
