My New Obsession

Like I  need a new time suck, but my son has gotten me obsessed with Game Of Thrones.

I am now on the second book and he is on the fifth and we are watching the series. Now I am not into fantasy films/books at all. It's just not my thing and this is what I call fantasy light.

What I really like about watching the HBO series is the scenery, costumes and styling. I would have absolutely no desire to live in Medieval times...I wouldn't last 5 minutes, but the gowns, the gold, the jewels, I could handle.
One of my favorite characters is Daenerys Targaryen.

Young, hot, tough, and earthy

Her living quarters at one point in the show was this:

That is definitely not glamping.
I am thinking modern day Daenerys would hang out in something like this:

After certain tragic situations, Daenerys morphs into this look:

I can't even take how beautiful this is.

In this look she has stopped camping and is more at a club med type of place:

And she hangs out with people like this:

And wears jewelry like this:

So I'm thinking modern day cleaned up Daenyers would live in something like this:

So if you enjoy watching/reading about the issues of social hierarchy, religion, loyalty, corruption, sexuality, civil war, crime, and punishment, then this is for you...and there are really cute guys in it.


  1. Sounds like I'm missing out on some fun!

  2. OMG, this is my FAVORITE husband read all the books and was so excited for the HBO series - he STILL raves about how amazing the storyline in the books are. Daenerys has to be one of my fave characters - I love really strong female leads - her army and dragons kick azz!!!! (I'm also obsessed with Tyrion Lannister!)
