#ManCrushMonday: Olly Murs

OM5

If like me you tune into The X Factor on a weekly basis, you will hopefully appreciate this week’s Man Crush Monday… Olly Murs!

As much as I loved Dermot O’Leary on a Saturday & Sunday night, I have to say, cheeky chappy Olly Murs is a welcome replacement. His flirtatious banter with Caroline Flack and occasional word vomit have kept me entertained since August, so I think this week he deserves a little attention!

Since 2009 (yes 2009!), Olly Murs has been gracing us with his presence on radio and television alike. As one of the most successful X Factor runner-ups, his career has gone from strength to strength, including 4 UK number one singles, a few (minor) successes in the US, and now his presenting role on The X Factor has brought him full circle.

Essex boy at heart, one of the things I like about Olly is how genuine and ‘normal’ he seems. I can imagine him having a pint in a pub with the lads, or enjoying a curry takeaway while watching I’m A Celebrity with the missus. I may be wrong, but I like to imagine him as a typical British boy next door. Except when he’s stripping down into a questionable thong on stage of course:

As well as a great, positive attitude, a  I am extremely jealous of the Troublemakers closet, and would like to spend an hour or so in there with him… Picking out clothes for myself of course! Although for you to really appreciate his dress sense, you will have to look elsewhere because most of the pictures in this post feature very little clothing.

Fun Facts About Olly Murs

OM1

  • Olly has a twin brother, but they are estranged, because Olly missed his wedding because due to The X Factor in 2009.
  • In 2007 he appeared on Deal or No Deal and went on to win a WHOPPING £10! (I’m sure his X Factor money doesn’t even compare!).
  • Despite his very successful and lucrative pop career, Olly continued to live with his parents until 2012 (three years after his run on The X Factor).
  • Before finding fame, Mr. Murs worked in a call centre and was part of a band called Small Town Blaggers.
  • During that time, he auditioned for The X Factor twice, failing on both occasions!

And there you have it, everything you need to know about Olly Murs, along with some skin-flashing images to perk up your Monday! Be careful when looking at these pictures, as they may cause your heart to skip a beat… (See what I did there? :-P)

#ManCrushMonday: Matt Bomer (Part One)

MB

I’ve been waiting for the right moment to pull this one out of the bag! To celebrate his debut as a series regular on American Horror Story: Hotel, and as a belated birthday present (he turned 38 yesterday!), I present to you, the almighty Matt Bomer!

I remember being fourteen and watching Tru Calling (an amazing, although shortlived, supernatural series starring Eliza Dushku), where I discovered the incredibly beautiful Matt Bomer for the first time. Now, more than eleven years on and he’s an ABSolute superstar! (see what I did there?).

MB4

Matt is simply one of the most handsome men in Hollywood, the planet and maybe even the universe (depending on what we discover on Mars!). I’m not usually a big fan of blue eyes, but pair them with a healthy head of tussled black hair and the body of an Adonis and I’m sure I can make an exception.

MB2

From taking the lead role in the hit series White Collar, to debuting his stripper skills on Magic Mike, Bomer has worked hard to secure himself a very successful career in both television and film. As I mentioned above, he’s currently starring in the latest incarnation of American Horror Story, and he had me drooling the second he appeared in the opening episode. I did my hardest to keep a straight poker face (I was watching with my husband, my sister and her boyfriend), but he is simply hypnotizing!

There is a lot more that I would like to say about Matt Bomer, but to make things a little bit more interesting (and for me to have an excuse to do more “research”), I’m going to drag this one out a little bit longer!

Yes, in a Pink Suburbia first, #ManCrushMonday is leaving you with a cliffhanger! So for now, make the most of these images and know that there will be more to follow next week…

#ManCrushMonday: Jensen Ackles

Jensen

It’s officially the first week of October, which can only mean one thing: the new season of Supernatural is about to start! After years of being behind, I spent the last few weeks finally catching up on this fantastic series, and as a result, surrendered myself to the lovable, crush-worthy Jensen Ackles!

jensen-ackles-fotosessiya-7478

On the show he plays bad boy Dean Winchester, the rebellious older brother with an appetite for demon killing, fast food and internet porn. Which basically means he ticks all the right boxes!

Over the years, I’ve seen a lot of cast interviews and behind the scenes specials, and it appears that as the show progressed, the line between Dean and Jensen continued to blur, and art started to imitate life. Jensen (and Dean) seems to be the life of the party. He’s often pranking his co-stars and pulling faces to camera, which make him absolutely adorable!

Season-5-Episode-8-Changing-Channels-dean-winchester-9023839-1280-720My favourite thing about him is his very sexy lips. There’s something very attractive about a man with plump lips, and his pout has been doing the Kylie Jenner challenge since before Kylie was born!

The only disappointing thing about Jensen is his lack of on-screen shirtlessness. I’ve managed to dig up a few shots, although the internet is mostly filled with Sam/Dean gay fan fiction. Do people not realize they are brothers!? I’ve managed to find a few though… even if he’s pulling faces:Skin2013_jpg-sergeiphotoca

Anyhow, Take a look at the lovely Jensen Ackles in all his glory! He’s handsome, funny and manly as hell, in a demon-hunter kind of way!

Fun Facts About Jensen Ackles

550w_best_of_shirtless_friday_06_jensen_ackles

  • Before Supernatural, he had a season-long arc on Smallville as Clark Kent’s love rival (Both were after the affection of Lana Lang).
  • But don’t worry, in real life he got along very well with Clark Tom Welling, they even became golf buddies!
  • Jensen began a modelling career at the ripe old age of 2. In the 90’s he took part in a cringey cowboy photoshoot. Yikes! I love him too much to post the pictures, but Google away, people!
  • As well as being a natural in front of the camera, He’s also taken to directing a few episodes of Supernatural.
  • You’d think being hot and a model would have made him very popular in school, but such was not the case: “When I was in middle school, some of my so-called friends found a catalog ad I did for Superman pajamas. They made as many copies as they could and pasted them up all over school.”

#ManCrushMonday: Nick Jonas

NJ5

I’ve been waiting patiently for Monday to come around, so I can share my crush with the world! This week’s title goes to Nick Jonas! Singer, actor, underwear model (not really, but he should be!), and an all around hot piece.

NJ1

I’ve been exposed to the Jonas Brothers since their rise to fame on the Disney Channel. My sister has always been a devoted fan of the JoBros, and I ended up becoming quite fond of them. Joe Jonas was always my favourite, I wanted to have his hair and his clothes (now I wouldn’t go anywhere near his 2008 wardrobe!). But in the last year or so, it’s the youngest of the trio that has been catching my eye.

Little curly haired, mild-mannered Nick Jonas has transformed into a beefy, sexy, R&B crooner. Who would have imagined!? Gone are the days of purity rings and Disney love songs. These have been replaced by half-naked photoshoots and sexy falsettos.

NJ2

Nick Jonas has well and truly distanced himself from his former band and brothers, and has established himself as a successful solo act. Some people have criticized his blatant pandering to his homosexual fans, but I think it’s great that a straight male celebrity is tapping into the market, no matter how shamelessly he does it! His now-infamous spread for Flaunt magazine definitely serves as a highlight from his sexually charged campaign!

I was lucky enough to get tickets to his album launch in the UK back in July, where he performed at the very cosy O2 Academy in Islington. I was one or two rows from the front of the stage, and he is even more stunning up close! My husband promised me that if he managed to touch Nick he would never wash his hand again, but sadly, we weren’t within groping distance! It should also be noted that Nick is a very talented musician and songwriter, and is always actively involved with the production of his albums.

NJ3

With his new single ‘Levels’ out now, and two hit TV series currently airing (Scream Queens and Kingdom), it’s hard to avoid seeing or listening to the young performer. And when he looks and sounds this good, why the hell would you want to!?

Fun Facts About Nick Jonas

NJ6

  • Nick was discovered at the age of six in a barber shop while his mother was getting a haircut.
  • He can do one-handed cartwheels.
  • He has been romantically linked to Miley Cyrus, Selena Gomez and… Delta Goodrem? Random!
  • A die-hard fan adopted a hippo in the name of the Jonas Brothers.
  • When he was 13 years old he released an album of Christian songs.

#ManCrushMonday: Scott Eastwood

Scott Eastwood, a star on the rise!

Scott1Normally I like to try and give a little bit more substance to these Man Crush posts (it’s not just looks that make a man!) Having said that, this week’s pick is more eye candy than anything else!

Not that there isn’t substance to Scott Eastwood. With a few hit films under his belt and more scheduled for release within the year, he is on the fast-track to becoming a bona fide Hollywood hunk! But truth is, the reason why he’s my topic of discussion this week is simply for the fact that I like to look at him!

I’m not very familiar with his work, but know of him, initially because of his famous father, Clint Eastwood (they share an uncanny resemblance!). Recently, He caught my eye with his starring role as ‘music video hottie’ in Taylor Swift’s video for Wildest Dreams. The visual is stunning in terms of cinematography and storytelling.

If you’re like me and need an education in all things Scott Eastwood, make sure you do a little more research! Watch ‘The Longest Ride’, drool at his Davidoff’s Cool Water ad campaign, and most importantly, curse at Taylor Swift for getting frisky with him in her video!

ScottI have a feeling he’s on the verge of really breaking out, so we all need to be aware of who he is and what he’s capable of! But for now… Let’s just enjoy what God, and hours at the gym, have given him!scott gif
