PRETTY52 | ALL THE THOUGHTS WE HAD DURING THE MID-SEASON FINALE OF PLL






1. What happened last week?
2. I swear I ask this every time.
3. Oh yeah, Hanna went rogue and hit Noel over the head.
4. She's badass.
5. This is the last mid-season finale of PLL ever.
6. I guess it's quite emotional when you think of it that way.
7. Yeah emotional 'cos we'll never ever get any of the answers we actually NEED.
8. Yass! Mona is back.
9. What a queen. A shady queen though.
10. Spencer why are you constantly suspicious this season?


11. Um, Hanna? You're not actually gonna use that knife on Noel right?
12. Actually, where did you even get a knife like that? It looks like something from a pirate movie.
13. WHY DO THESE GIRLS NOT WEAR GLOVES.
14. OMG. 
15. Finger prints people!!! Do you WANT to get done for the crime?
16. I can't tell if this Detective Marco is 24 or 54.
17. The lighting is not kind to this man.
18. Oh, Toby is back. Another useless Rosewood policeman.
19. Remember the time he got high while chasing A?
20. Man, I hope this happens again this episode.

21. Yes, Spencer because kissing a policeman is the most appropriate thing to do in this situation.
22. They believe Hanna has been abducted, but y'know this comes first.
23. When will these girls ever learn?
24. Where did Hanna get that cash?
25. She hasn't worked in 4903480 years.
26. They should have recruited Mona in the beginning.
27. She's the only one who knows how to get things done.
28. But MAYBE....she's working for the other side?
29. Ezra needs to work on his selfie angles. That facetime call was not flattering.
30. Where is Hanna's mum if her abduction is on the news?!!!

31. #plllogic
32. *deep voice* 'I need your help, and I need you to come alone.'
33. You're not in Taken, babe.
34. Noel is such a red herring.
35. If only we could tell Hanna this through the screen.
36. 'Hanna, it's only episode 10. There's no way Marlene would reveal it this soon in.'
37. Hi Paige and your dodgy hair cut.
38. Bitchy Ali is back, and I like it.
39. Who has time to order muffins when their friend has been 'abducted'?!!
40. Priorities people!

41. Hanna where's your skip cap? What a fab disguise that was last episode, you lil spy....
42. Mona's hair, her outfit, her make up, everything is on point.
43. Why doesn't she get more screen time?
44. Caleb and Hanna are fo'sure getting back together this episode.
45. Is Jenna even blind? Is she faking it?
46. Who knows anymore.
47. 'I hate to break it to you guuuurl'
48. Hi Caleb from the ghetto.
49. Who writes these cheesy scripts?!
50. Wait, I take that back.

51. The part about spending their lives together was so f*cking cute.
52. KISS YOU GUYS!
53. 'I'm pregnant.'
54. WHAT, ALI?
55. Where did this come from? How random.
56. Who's the father? This just gets more complicated.
57. 'Is it Archer's?' 'Of course, who else would it be?'
58. Well it IS PLL, so it's obviously not Archer's then.
59. Bet A.D planted Emily's eggs or something inside her.
60. Eww.

61. What a cute dress, Aria.
62. This Marco will not give up. He's so desperate to get in Spencer's pants.
63. I still can't work out if he's her age, or her dad's age.
64. Hanna, c'mon. You've been running 'rouge' for what? Like two days?
65. You *probably* haven't showered, shaved your legs...anything.
66. You're *probably* a bit smelly.
67. This is your first time with Caleb since it all happened. Spice yourself up a bit, girl.
68. Since when did PLL show sex scenes?
69. *uncomfortable*
70. Emily, you have like 2 other girlfriends.

71. Why not just throw Ali into the mix then too, eh?
72. NICOLE IS ALIVE.
73. I mean I really don't care about this story line, but I honestly thought she was dead.
74. Toby I-built-this-house-for-you-Spencer-but-now-I'm-giving-it-to-Yvonne Kavanaugh.
75. Who is now putting the house up for sale. The house he spent YEARS building.
76. What a waste.
77. Where is all the action and drama in this episoide?!
78. Get a move on.
79. 'Toby can I kiss you one last time?'
80. Em, no Spencer because that's inappropriate. He's ENGAGED. 

81. What a weird request, no one in real life would actually ask this. Know your boundaries.
82. You're cheated on Yvonne, Toby. I hope you're happy that you've hurt the world's most pointless character.
83. Paige, you're so clingy. Go away.
84. She better not be involved in this whole thing.
85. Hanna's extension are the absolute WORST.
86. Where did Noel go?!

89. That was the most synchronised tea pouring I've ever seen.
90. Are Mona and Caleb secretly friends? Weird.

108. 'You know too much.'
109. Well tell US what you know!! 
110. Noel, you were stabbed in the leg. How can you walk?

111. WHO gave Jenna a gun?
112. Honestly.
113. And where is her stick? Does this mean she's not actually blind?
114. What a mess you've made, Noel. How rude. This is someone else's property.
115. I just don't understand how Noel and Jenna can be involved in all of this.
116. Damn, Emily that was a fantastic punch.

16 REASONS WHY THE BEST RELATIONSHIPS START AS FRIENDSHIPS



http://giphy.com/gifs/love-happy-11cYj2exwGmTAY


As seen by Monica and Chandler, Rachel and Ross, hey, even Rom and Hermione....all the best relationships start out as friendships. You're comfortable with each other, you have a great laugh, and you've always got each other's back.




1. You're already comfortable around them.
There are no awkward silences like some of the other dates you've been on, you've both got loads to talk about.


2. You share lots of amazing memories together already.
Being friends means you've known each other for years and are able to reminisce about funny memories together.



http://giphy.com/gifs/love-kiss-couple-sDlcsfz84ofcs


3. There are no bad surprises- they've already seen you at your worst.
Most likely on a night-out with your other friends, lying drunk outside a kebab shop.


4. You can be 100% yourself around them.
They love you for you and you don't have to hide anything from them.




http://giphy.com/gifs/kiss-adorable-kissing-10ZSD5bu7vCBmU


5. You've probably got the whole awkward 'meeting the parents' thing out of the way.
Most likely you've met their parents at some point over the years or they've spoke to their mum about you, which makes it easier when you decide to take this step.


6. Arguments don't last long.
And if you do have one, they're usually consist of bickering over little things like who's turn it is to chose what to watch on Netflix.




http://giphy.com/gifs/love-movie-kiss-mai8haN4LEsFO

7. You know them inside out.
Which makes buying them a gift for Christmas or their birthday suuuuper easy.


8. You share a lot of the same friends.
You're basically a big family now!




http://giphy.com/gifs/hot-april-ludgate-andy-dwyer-3EAKxhqKHYGUaLR3kk


9. Your "how we met" story is cute AF and you know it.
I mean you don't like to brag or anything, but most 'relationship goals' are founded upon a friends-turned-into-lovers kind of story #winnningatlife


10. Nothing in your social life really has to change because this is someone you already spend a ton of time with. 
Just now you get to kiss them whenever you want.




http://giphy.com/gifs/love-movie-Kk64p7QvTbCYE


11. You know how to cheer each other up.
Because you're friends first, you know exactly what to do when they're feeling down.


12. You can rely on them for anything.
They're your 4am pick up call and also your 3pm 'just phoning for a chat' call.



http://giphy.com/gifs/love-movie-couple-LWq9sBkMRZYha


13. You're able to set the pace of your relationship.
Things can start slow and simple (just incase you don't want to tarnish your friendship), but because you know their background, you can set your own terms.


14. You're familiar with each other career goals.
There will be no surprises or arguments because you both know what the other wants to do with their life.




http://giphy.com/gifs/movie-girl-man-kqTUai2XpPlU4


15. You just generally have the best time when you're out together.
From holidays and date nights to even family gatherings, your partner in crime is by your side.


16. Most importantly, your friendship and relationship creates an amazing bond between you both.
We all know the best boyfriends are the ones that feel like best friends you get to kiss, anyway.

PRETTY52 | HOW TO MAKE SURE YOUR RELATIONSHIP IS A HEALTHY ONE








Relationships can be tricky, there s no point in denying it. No partnership is plain sailing, it can be difficult and down right frustrating at times. Even the greatest love stories have troubles and obstacles to overcome, but when you find yourself with someone who causes more drama than it's worth- it's time to move on. Your relationship, on the whole, should be fun and a showcase of your love.



Sometimes we don't see what's right in-front of us though; we're blinded by love. We may think we're in a happy and healthy relationship yet, there could be some major alarm bells ringing. Relationships require work and dedication, but most importantly they crave happiness and joy.



A thriving and healthy relationship requires some give and take, and is completely attainable if you are your partner are willing to compromise. If you and your partner are right for each other, all the work will be worth it in the long run.



Here are Pretty52's ways to ensure you're in a healthy relationship:




Communication is key.

We've all been there, when our partner pulls the 'oh I didn't know what to get your for your birthday' card, even though you've been hinting at the new Urban Decay palette for, like, a century and you're actually seething inside. As annoying as it is, these trivial things don't matter much in the long run. It's more when you find yourself having the same argument over and over again, especially if it is certain around something that is important to you. For a healthy relationship, maybe re-think how you go about it, and tell your partner how you genuinely feel on the matter.


There are some fights just not worth having.

It's important to know which arguments are worth the battle, and those that aren't. As human we tend to fret over pointless things; but no couple wants to fight over something stupid. Pick your timing to have an argument (preferably when you're in your own home with no one around) to talk it out sensibly and effectively. A healthy relationship will have obstacles, it's inevitable, but know know how to deal with them, particularly without hurting your SO's feelings.


Things have settled down, but there is still a spark.

Once the honeymoon period has worn off, things tend to get a little comfortable. There's nothing wrong with that, and realistically, we should all embrace it. This is the part where you get to see your partner for who they truly are, and become settled with one another. However, a healthy relationship will ensure that you're not too too settled. A spark should still be there. You should still fancy them, want them, and actively seek to spend time with each other.


You're open and honest with each other.
Honestly is a massive part in any relationship. We're not talking about little things (y'know like how much you actually spend on make-up and shoes a month...that's just an argument waiting to happen, and like we said, you gotta choose your battles!) but more on moments which can define you as a couple. If you find your partner hiding their phone, or you're suspicious of their actions a lot, it's not right. To make sure you have a healthy relationship, be honest and trustworthy with your loved one.





Image from Pinterest: https://uk.pinterest.com/pin/322429654554295147/


There are no empty promises.
I don't know about you, but I take a pinky promise a legit form of law. Promises shouldn't be broken, but most importantly something shouldn't be promised if you have no intention of actually fulfilling it. Doing this makes it seem like your partner isn't your number one priority in life. For a healthy relationship, make sure you put them first and show them that you care.


You know when to say sorry (and mean it!)
The word 'sorry' can get thrown around a lot as a means to end an argument, but don't say it unless you mean it. When you needed, think about why you're saying it and look at the situation from your bf/gf's point of view. You should be able to talk about your feelings, no matter how awkward or uncomfortable it is. Learn to say 'sorry' genuinely and meaningfully for a long-lasting relationship.


Self-happiness is key too.
While your partner should make you happy, it is important that you rely on your own self too for joy. A relationship not only means respect for your loved one, but also yourself. It's healthy to take time for yourself and to grow as a person outwith the relationship. In a good relationship, both partners should encourage each other to grow and change as a person.


You can admit your mistakes.
We're all human (and hey, after a few vodkas we've all been known to speak a little too honestly), but admitting you're in the wrong is the only way to move forward. Doing this, instead of making excuses or justifications, means you're accepting responsibility for your actions and proving you're in a healthy relationship.




Image from Pinterest: https://uk.pinterest.com/pin/450148925230671257/


And also forgive each other.
While admitting your mistakes, it is important to forgive your partner too if they make one. A healthy relationship should progress through life, and if you choose to tackle things together, you'll become much stronger as a couple. Don't dwell on the past but instead, focus on a positive future together.


You're able to make decisions together.
In a healthy relationship you both take equal part when it comes to decision making and planning. One person might be more decisive on certain things, while the other knows the answer on others, but when it comes to the major stuff (like where to buy a house, when you should start saving money together) you're equals, partnership. You should value and listen to each other's concerns and ideas.


Balance is important.
No-one likes a friend who ditches girls night every time to hang our with their bae. You should have a life (and a social circle!) out-with each other and your relationship. Yes, they may be the most important person in your life, but you're also your own person. It's healthy to take a step back every now and then to have fun with your friends.


You have realistic expectations.
Life isn't like the movies, no matter how much you compare it to a Nicholas Spark's book. Stop putting your partner down because they've not returned from war for two weeks, and won't measure the size of the moon against your thumb (Dear John for those who haven't seen it!). These situations are really unlikely to happen. Appreciate them for who they are, and create your own memories at your own pace.



Image from Pinterest: https://uk.pinterest.com/pin/AdIJSTICdEG9qvNbvbU4yCbk4O_-meVp6dosotzrjHXsiiclLgLR-60/



You both appreciate each other.
We often forget to let the most important people in our life know how much we care. We think it, but don't always show it. Remember that relationships are a thing of quality, not quantity. You should make the most of your time together and make sure the other person knows how much they mean to you. Remember there is a huge difference from having dinner on the sofa while you're both scrolling through your phones, to sharing some food at a table and talking about your day. It might be unrealistic to do this every night (if you both work busy schedules) but it is crucial that you're both engaging in quality time together to maintain a healthy partnership.


Trust is unbreakable.
In order to have a healthy, thriving relationship you should be able to 100% trust your partner. It isn't healthy to share your life with someone that you don't. The best way to test this is to make sure their faithful, honest and caring.


You're friends as well as partners.

What is the point in a relationship with no laughter? As loved up as you may be, it's important to be friends with your SO too. You need someone that you can share your life with, and if they're not your friend when you need one, why bother wasting your time? A healthy relationship is built upon friendship, and those who started out as friends before they got together, know that they often end up the best kind of relationship.


Your relationship is your happy place.
This is the most importantly aspect for any healthy relationship. Your partner is who you should want to come to home to after you've had the day from hell; your relationship should be a place of trust and stability; and most importantly your (heathly!) happy place.

PRETTY52 | ALL THE THOUGHTS WE HAD DURING THIS WEEK'S PRETTY LITTLE LIARS





1.       Ok, I’m trying to think what happened in the last episode.
2.       Paige and her awful haircut, Ezra’s left Aria to help search for Nicole, Ali’s back at work…
3.       Oh, oh! Hanna’s went rouge!
4.       Maybe we’ll finally get some good answers.
5.       Ha, as if.
6.       Spencer babe, what in your right mind though it would be a good idea to get a perm?
7.       Stick with your straight hair.
8.       Aria’s jacket is cute. I spend half my time wondering where the girls’ get their outfits from rather than trying to solve the overall mystery.
9.       Hanna looks like she’s recording a suicide note.
10.   PLL is MUCH darker now.


11.   Remember season one A made them go to Mona’s camping sleepover?
12.   They’ve upped their threat level now, eh?
13.   I’ll miss this theme song when the show is over.
14.   This new police officer is far too old for Spencer.
15.   Bring back #Spoby
16.   Who is pretending to be Rollins // impersonating him?!
17.   Is red velvet cake supposed to be a clue?
18.   They’re clutching at straws now, if it is.
19.   Sabrina is the world’s most chill GF (wait, IS she Emily’s girlfriend?!)
20.   I can never keep up with her.

21.   YASS. Jason is back.
22.   His hair is all Thor like.
23.   Wait, Aria wasn’t there when the cellar was set on fire.
24.   SUSPICIOUS, Aria.
25.   What I don’t understand is why they haven’t asked Mary who the second child is?
26.   Yes, she may lie about it, but at least it would give them an idea.
27.   #plllogic
28.   What is this whole thing between Aria and Jason, anyway?
29.   Yes, Hanna. What a great disguise- put a skip cap on and no-one will recognise you.
30.   Spy tip number 1 *rolls eyes*

31.   I’ve said it before and I’ll say it again.
32.   Why does no one wear gloves on this show?! Fingerprints, people!!!
33.   Cute. Noel Kahn’s screensaver is Sara Harvey <3 <3 <3
34.   If that even is Noel’s phone. The whole thing is so confusing now.
35.   Um, Aria.
36.   WHY did you leave Jason for Ezra?
37.   You did see him in that flashback, yeah?
38.   Also, what a comfy looking bed. I’d never leave a guy if his bed was that comfy.
39.   Paige, WHAT are you wearing?!
40.   The costume department obviously ran out of money when it came to her character. She needs a makeover.

41.   In all seriousness though, the mid-season finale is next week and the writers are more focussed on Emily and Aria’s relationships.
42.   Give me action! Give me answers!
43.   ‘Oh, Emily I didn’t know you were seeing anyone.’
44.   Um, Paige. You were watching them through the window last episode, lil fibber.
45.   Who is that random guy with Hanna?
46.   Oh a drug dealer. Shady.
47.   How do you get hair like Emily Fields?
48.   Girl has hair goals.
49.   Stop showing us the Nicole story; no one cares about the Nicole story.
50.   Hmmm maybe Noel is more involved in it all than I thought.

51.   Where is Wren again? Bring back Wren.
52.   Hanna’s went rouge, but still obviously has her nails done.
53.   These girls love breaking into people’s homes.
54.   It’s not Come Dine with Me; you can’t just look through their private things.
55.   WHAT IS ON THAT USB.
56.   Why are there only folders for the girls specifically?
57.   Like, how obsessed were these people?
58.   FROM THE DOLLHOUSE.
59.   Omg.
60.   I can’t.

61.   What is happening?
62.   Noel was in the dollhouse?
63.   This is so much information!!!
64.   He was Charlotte’s helper. But why?
65.   Good point, Aria. Why would you only look in one of the folders?
66.   Question: where is Ali this episode?!
67.   That girl disappears far too much.
68.   So the phone Noel binned was Sara’s phone?
69.   Why was she her own screensaver then? Ha ha, that trend stops after you’re about 13.
70.   What the hell is Noel’s problem…

71.   Oh how convenient, Spencer’s lights don’t work.
72.   It’s like the perfect set up for an A attack.
73.   Jason’s hair is in better condition than mines.
74.   I wonder what conditioner he uses.
75.   Aria loves her flashbacks in this episode.
76.   It’s like she has a pensieve from Harry Potter.
77.   I wonder where Hanna is staying.
78.   And where Mary Drake is actually.
79.   I’d crap myself if a branch flew through my window like that.
80.   Which A is in Spencer’s house?

81.   I feel like there are about 37 of them running around Rosewood.
82.   Detective Marco here to save the day.
83.   Absolute amateur.
84.   You should always make a copy, Spencer.
85.   Y’know just incase someone STEALS it.
86.   Although there are a distinctive lack of A text messages.
87.   Strange.
88.   I can’t tell if Aria is happy that Ezra is coming home, or happy that Nicole isn’t alive to mess up their relationship.
89.   Her engagement ring is b-e-a-u-tiful.
90.   Why would the judge of the trial adopt Mary’s baby?

91.   So unrealistic.
92.   But #plllogic
93.   Wow, what a good strike Hanna.
94.   I HATE a cliffhanger.
95.   Just give me next week’s already!!

Sunday, 21 August 2016

18 SIGNS YOU'VE REACHED THE REALLY COMFORTABLE STAGE OF YOUR RELATIONSHIP




Relationships are so strange if you think about them. You start off as the most polished version of yourself: hair done, nails done, eyebrows plucked, legs shaved. The whole works. And then you find yourself six months down the line with un-dyed roots, chipped nails, hairy brows...and well, legs that haven't seen a razor in a loooong time.
But hey, you're happy. You're comfortable. You're in a real-life relationship. But most importantly, your partner loves you for you.


1. You both make fun of each other freely.
The odd insult gets fired every now and then, but you're comfortable enough with each other to know that it's a joke and never any harm.

2. You share a Netflix account/ password.
The biggie. Yup, you're at that point in your relationship where you trust your parter with your one true love. Netflix.



https://giphy.com/gifs/love-cute-AtIRfTjM3hxU4


3. You are both completely gross and do not respect each other's personal space.
Yup, you're at that stage where spots are being popped, blackheads are being examined...It ain't pretty, but hey, you're happy.

–– ADVERTISEMENT ––
4. 'Girls don't fart' is 100% a myth to you both now.
Hey, you're only human, sometimes these things just happen.



https://giphy.com/gifs/love-cute-adorable-aQXNaMAwoie7C


5. You have a joint playlist for any car journeys you take together.
And you're not embarrassed to admit how many cheesy songs youve sneaked on there. But the main thing? Bae doesn't judge you for it. He's a keeper!


6. You both agree that honesty really is the best policy.
ESPECIALLY when it comes to what your SO is wearing. 'Soz babe, but there is absolutely no way I'm leaving the house with you wearing that...' 





https://giphy.com/gifs/couple-laughing-5w1krz5D5diko


7. You no longer have to spend lots and do exciting things to have fun together.
You're comfortable enough to sit, have a cuddle and watch some TV (and the occasional scroll through Facebook)


8. Actually- you'd MUCH rather do this.
Your fave thing to do together is to sit in your pjs, drink wine and judge your friends. What lovely people you are.



https://giphy.com/gifs/once-more-with-feeling-USRVXPpVIQVyw


9. You trust them enough to take care of your pet.
Whether it be a dog or a cat (hey, maybe even a goldfish) who cares! What matters is this truly cements a point of solid trust.



10. You're 100% your self around them.
No need for fakeness or frills. They love you as you are.




https://giphy.com/gifs/love-natalie-portman-ashton-kutcher-12MEd3rlhhRDTa


11. Weight gain isn't a big deal.
With all the snacking you do, it's probably inevitable that a few extra pounds have crept on over time. But who cares?! You're in a healthy, loving relationship.


12. You've been known to have full blown rows about the next TV series you should watch/ about them watching an episode without you.

13. You're actually that comfortable that you're able to chat about what your kids will be like.
'Like what happens if we don't actually like it? Can we send it back?'

And can't even imagine what people would think if your weird ways were being secretly broadcast to the world.

15. You're past the 'name-calling' stage.
Ughh, remember the days of 'baby' and 'sweetheart'. How much effort that was.


16. Body hair maintenance is for extremely special occasions only.
And you're partner has been known to call you the human Chewbacca.

17. There is no such thing as an awkward silence.
Talking 24/7 and filing the silence is for amateurs. You've got to a point where you can communicate with one look.


18. But most importantly, you're so comfortable that you no longer have to validate or show off your relationship.
You're happy, they're happy, and there's a whole lotta love. That's all that matters.
