Gossip Girl Season 4 on DVD: Bonus Content!

The complete fourth season of Gossip Girl not only has 22 episodes filled with love, betrayal, friendship and scandal, but also never-before-seen features such as unaired scenes and gag reels! I'm super excited about this just because I can see more Serena! 

If you've been following my Gossip Girl posts, you know that I love Serena's fashion sense, especially in the fourth season. To me, that makes this DVD totally worth it! Plus if you buy the DVD, you'll get some really awesome never-before-scene additional enhanced features such as Bisoux a Paris which is an inside look at Serena and Blair's summer in the City of Lights, and The Art of Making an Episode, which is an in-depth look at how Gossip Girl stories are built from page to screen. 

What are you most excited to see on the DVD of Gossip Girl Season 4?

Make sure you snatch your copy here!

Nikita Season 1 on DVD: Strangest thing you've ever done for a friend?

In Season 1 of Nikita, Nikita and Alex grow and become a team, but aiding Nikita could mean death for Alex if she's ever found out. What is the strangest thing that you've ever done for a friend and given the choice now would you do it again?

I must have been sitting here thinking about the "strangest thing I've done for a friend" for at least 20 mins. I honestly do not think I've done anything strange for anyone, but I have had someone do something strange for me. My name is Kristina and my boyfriend has peed on me! No, no no! This is not going to be one of those fetish posts. However, my boyfriend has peed on me.

We were in Mexico on a cruise excursion and I got stung by a jelly fish! The pain was excruciating and I had a lash on my leg about 4 inches long! I've gotten stung by jelly fish since and I swear it doesn't near as much in Delaware waters as it did in Mexico. Anyway, everyone kept telling my boyfriend to pee on the sting and it would take the sting out of it. So after a lot of procrastination and pain later, we snuck off to the outdoor shower and took care of my sting. So gross, but IT WORKED!!! Thankfully I've always been prepared when being stung by jelly fish since, but if I wasn't I'd let him pee on me again. I posed this question to him as well and he agreed that he'd do it again, but only if he absolutely had to.

Buy Nikita Season 1 on DVD here to see Alex and Nikita work together despite Alex's risk of death if being found out.

No More Word Verification / Captchas!!!

The other day I was commenting on a blog and I kept messing up the word verification. Seriously I must have retyped that sucker at least 3 times. And suddenly it occurred to me; Word Verifications are the most annoying thing in the world to me! Sometimes it makes me not even want to comment on a blog post! And then I had a second epiphany; I make my wonderful, lovely bloggers, fill out word verifications to comment on my blog! Well not anymore!!! I am sooooo happy to announce that Peaches Reviews will NO longer require word verification!!


Yes, it might take me a little extra time to delete spam comments when verifying giveaway entries, but ya know what? It's worth it. Plus, I've noticed that blogger has installed a pretty spiffy spam catcher so maybe I won't need to delete spam anyway!


What are your thoughts on word verifications? Do you have them on your blog? Does it deter you from commenting on other blogs?

Nikita Season 1 on DVD: Would you become a secret spy and give up your old life?



"The Division" recruits troubled youth, erases their background and shapes them into spies and assassins. If given the chance, would you neglect your current life for one of globe trotting spy work if it meant you would have to cut all ties with everyone in your life?


My answer: NO WAYYY!!!!! I could never ever leave my bloggy friends!!! Hahah for real! I couldn't! I also couldn't leave my boyfriend, my puppy, my family, my friends and the list goes on... I couldn't leave anyone! While I don't always love my life, I do love the people in it. And as much as I have always thought being a spy would be an awesome job, I wouldn't do it if it meant leaving all of my loved ones.


Now I'm posing the question to you. If given the chance, would you neglect your current life for one of globe trotting spy work if it meant you would have to cut all ties with everyone in your life?

Gossip Girl Season 4 on DVD: My Dream Vacation!




Summer vacations are always a blast! In Season 4 Ep. 1, Serena and Blair enjoy their summer vacation in Paris trying to take their minds off of home. When Serena and Blair take this lavish trip to Paris, they experience the food, culture, fashion, and even romance! Blair meets a French royal that wants to sweep her off her feet, gets into a major spat with Serena, and even bumps into her ex, Chuck!


While their vacation looked like a blast, my dream vacation is a little bit different. I seriously want to go anywhere and everywhere. I love exploring the culture of many different countries. In November of 2010, my boyfriend and I took a cruise on the largest cruise ship, Oasis of the Seas!!! I'm sure you've heard of it, and if not, click the link and check it out :)


The ship itself is absolutely amazing. There's a central park right in the middle of the ship. The back of the ship contains a boardwalk with a carousel and also an aquatheater! Words cannot even express how amazing this vacation was so I'm giving you a bunch of my favorite pictures to check out!












If you haven't cruised before, I totally recommend you try it out! So what's your dream vacation??



Too busy for a summer vacation? Join Serena and Blair in Paris with Season 4 of Gossip Girl (http://bit.ly/r4GTe8)!

Smile With Me Saturday Blog Hop





First off, smile with me :) You made it through another week and deserve a big smile. You've got the whole weekend ahead of you so make it a good one!

This week's featured Smiley Hopper is Rebecca from From Mommy to Calm Insanity!!



I asked Rebecca a few questions about herself and her blog so you could get to know a little bit about her.

1) When did you first start blogging? Why?
Gosh, I don't remember when I first started actually. I created several blogs over the past few years for various things. One was for my art, another as a diary, and one as a family blog...etc. I started the blog I have now the very end of December 2010 to try and get back into it. I had no idea the world of blogging and having followers and blog hops and things even existed and now it has been come an obsession. Staying up late just to get in a post or read a few blogs. I really enjoy it.

2) What's your favorite part about blog hopping?
I like going through blogs and finding ones that really spark my interest. I love looking at everyone's blog designs as well. I'm an artist, so its the first thing I look for.


3) What's your favorite hobby
My favorite hobby is creating art. I used to do all traditional art but have now been doing so much more digital works and doing a lot more graphic design more then my illustrations. Art is my life.

4) Who's your role model?
I have three, but my main role model is Edgar Degas.. I'm so much in love with impressionism and he is my favorite Impressionist. I modeled myself after his ballerina paintings for a self portrait I created where I was his ballerina. The painting is now hanging in my parents home and his work makes me cry sometimes. Its so beautiful and you feel the motion of his brush strokes. He has been my idol for as long as I can remember. I hope one day to be able to see his paintings in person.

Nikita Season 1 on DVD: Don't Judge a Book Buy it's Cover

There have been several moments throughout the show that Nikita has been judged solely on her looks, which is a huge mistake! Nikita is very beautiful, but sooooo strong! During Season one she kicks some major butt!


So the questions posed to me is, have you ever been in a situation where someone has judged you based on what you looked like, and how did you prove them wrong? I feel like I'm constantly judged. I have long blonde hair, blue eyes, nails done, make up perfect and I look very young, but I'm not a ditz. Well at least not all the time. I graduated college Magna Cum Laude with a degree in finance. I'm a successful commercial underwriter. Just recently I was at orientation for my new job. During this orientation there are people from all over the bank, from tellers thru senior vice presidents. When introducing ourselves to our tables, everyone assumed I was there for teller orientation. They were all shocked to hear that I was an underwriter. The same thing happened again when I started my job. Many people were wondering how old I was since I barely look like I could have graduated high school let alone college.


So have you ever been in a situation where someone has judged you based on what you looked like?

Let's discuss fashion in Season 4 of Gossip Girl!



I don't know about you guys, but I LOVE LOVE LOVE fashion! I love everything about it! I love when people are daring (tho I'm not so daring myself). I love when people push boundaries with their fashion, ala Lady Gaga! On Gossip Girl, Blair and Serena are always dressed to impress and pushing the boundaries with their fashion. While I love Blair's classic "Upper East Side Chic" style, I can't help but fall in love with the sexy effortless styling of Serena.




One of my favorite outfits was the one shown above. I'm totally in love with the black and white print paired with the teal neck line and belt. Oh the blue shoes are soooo fabulous. Of course to stick with Serena's sexy yet effortless styling, the dress is cleavage baring, yet her hair is pulled up loosely, a little messy and undone. Gorgeous, gorgeous, gorgeous! If I only I had this dress and an event to wear it to!



Another one of Serena's outfits that I'm crazy about is this one shown above. While I'm not a huge fan of pleated pants, these pants look killer on her thin frame. I'm totally loving the fold jacket paired with the blue as well. And again, the sexy effortless style shows clear with Serena's plain makeup and simple pony tail with a slight curl. LOVE IT!


So who's style do you like the best? Sexy Serena or classic Blair?


Step on the runway of style with the fabulous 4th season of Gossip Girl on DVD http://bit.ly/r4GTe8!

Gossip Girl Season 4 on DVD: Relationship Drama Galore!



Relationships play a huge role in Gossip Girl. Chuck & Blair, the show’s most popular couple, have been on-and-off throughout the Gossip Girl series. They are consistently at ends with each other, but their love seems to have no bounds. However, as the season progresses, Blair begins to have feelings for her best friend Serena’s ex, Dan. In Season 4, Ep 18, The Kids Stay in the Picture, Chuck comes to the realization that he wants to win Blair back after she and Dan share a kiss. 


I'm rooting for Chuck & Blair all the way! Although they've been terrible for each other in the past, I think they both need to clean up their acts and be the right ones for each other now! I'm ready to get off this roller coaster of their relationship and get settled. I just want to scream at the TV, "Be together and be happy!!" Go Chair!


So, do you want to see Blair with Chuck or Dan, or are you rooting for her fairytale romance with Prince Louis?


So much relationship drama unfolds in the fourth season, available for pre-order here: http://bit.ly/r4GTe8!”
