Guilty Pleasures

We all have them, whether we want to admit it or not. Ironically, two of my posts for We Eat Films are about guilty pleasures.

The first one lists my Top 5 Guilty Pleasure films. Read them here, and please don’t judge me!

Another one is a guilty pleasure show I picked up on, “Remedy”. Can it survive a second season? Find out here

Feel free to tell me your guilty pleasure films and tv shows, I want to know! I’m nosey 😛

Until next time,

Stay tuned for more designs!

Hello Everyone

Thank you again for checking out my blog! I’m a writer, first and foremost, but I enjoy designing as well. You know the expression “don’t judge a book by its cover”?

This blog will be about web design, and my journey to become a better designer. Hope you enjoy!
