The HBO original domestic vampires are back from hiatus. The fan-favorite returns for it’s fifth season and is sure to keep viewers hooked! Last season left viewers in shock when learning of Tara’s impending death after what seemed like a never-ending cycle of bad luck for Sookie. After turning down both Eric and Bill as potential boyfriends, is there any hope that Tara will live? Season previews show a new cast of authority making a big True Blood debut.
Series premieres Sunday, June 10
3. em>Awkward Season 2
Awkward Season 2
Social outcast Jenna Hamiliton, turned popular teen, caught our attention last season for its humor and relatively believable social scenarios. Season 1 ended with Prom and an unbelievable twist, revealing Jenna’s mom as the source behind the hate letter. A possible love triangle presents itself, as BFF’s Matty and Jake duke it out for Jenna’s love and attention.
Series premieres Thursday, June 28
4. Food Network Star Season 8
With the show already underway (premiered May 12), the competition is heating up! A new set-up of head chefs including Alton Brown, Bobby Flay, and Gianta De Larurentiis guide their team through cooking/hosting challenges. Stars have already begun to emerge from each team, who prove to have both the on-camera personality and cooking chops to match!
Watch on Food Network, Sundays at 9pm/8c
What shows are you looking forward to this summer?

BeachMint Review

In the midst of adding a fifth venture to their list of e-commerce sites, BeachMint continues to become more popular among subscribers. BeachMint is a company who relies on social commerce to sell custom curated collections of jewelry, T-shirts, shoes and skin Care products.
Each site is co-hosted by a celebrity and industry professional, who select the pieces before they appear on the site. Upon sign-up you are asked a series of questions in order to better identify yourself. Following sign-up you are presented with a custom selection of items that align with your taste.
HomeMint
The companies fifth undertaking is HomeMint, which for $10 a month lets customers enjoy early access to new home decor accessories and furniture. The site will be co-hosted by Justin Timberlake and interior designer Estee Stanly.
Each site varies in once a month payments of $10-$79.98, however you can opt out anytime you feel the months selection is not for you. My personal reactions to the sites have been better than expected! I am sometimes skeptical to sign up for monthly sites that sell clothing and accessories. However, after ordering from JewelMint, I was pleasantly surprised with not only the quality of the piece but also the packaging!
If you have subscribed to any of the BeachMint sites we want to know what your opinions are, comment below or Tweet us at @FCFashionista!
