Loved Lately


It's been a while since I talked in some way about my current favourite things and my last Favourites post was back in January, so I have quite a few things to catch you up on!


Watching ::
At the beginning of March my brother showed me the Shelter by Porter Robinson & Maedon music video because it's actually a short anime film and we both looove anime. I went in with Matt's warning: 'If I cried then you're definitely gonna cry' and naturally he was right. I've watched it three times now and I absolutely bawled each time. It's incredibly powerful and beautiful, and now that I know the lyrics it really ties into the experience.

I talk a little in a minute about my re-love of Panic! At The Disco but Brendon Urie's Death of a Bachelor & Victorious performances totally sealed the deal for me. He just looks so happy & he's totally feelin' himself when he sings and omg I think I fancy him a lil bit.

As for Netflix: Reign, Riverdale, NerveInsurgent, Cinderella and Shadowhunters have been my recent picks!

Wearing ::
Last Wednesday I took a little trip to Nailsea with my Dad & Luke and although I was there for the charity shops, I did end up getting this b-e-a-utiful backpack from New Look. I shared a little snap of it on social media and you guys went crazy for it too, so it seems we all have impeccable taste ;) It's been a long while since I got a new bag and I can't wait to wear this one during Spring & Summer this year. I always find carrying a handbag in the hot weather v uncomfortable so having it slung across my back lookin' pretty is going to be perfect. I wore it for the first time on Friday with my new Topshop dress (£3 from a charity shop!!) and I felt amazingggg. I've been feeling some feels about being body positive & confident whilst having a physical illness but bedecking myself in pretty things has been helping.

Another thing I've loved wearing lately are my embroidered leopard print flats from H&M. I bought them last Summer for £3 in the sale and I've loved wearing them with an all-black outfit lately.
Reading ::
I've really struggled with reading lately - mainly because I read A Court of Mist and Fury by Sarah J Maas and nothing else has compared. I read it twice back-t0-back and everything I've tried to read since has me yearning for it. It's empowering, tense, romantic, sexy and utterly captivating. I'm literally counting down the days until A Court of Wings and Ruin is released (May 2nd!).

Listening ::
I've completely overhauled my iTunes library over the past few months and it's utterly unrecognisable from the ATL-only zone it used to be. I've recently discovered Bad Suns and Melanie Martinez, as well as re-discovered The 1975 and Panic! At The Disco - and added a few instrumental tracks from my favourite TV shows. The Your lie in April soundtrack is utterly beautiful, by the way. Here's a little playlist to give you an idea of all the things I'm loving rn:
 
1. Take My Love and Run - Bad Suns
2. Outskirts of Paradise - Bad Suns
3. Rearview - Bad Suns
4. Patience - Bad Suns
5. Violet - Bad Suns
6. Uso to Honto - Your lie in April soundtrack.
7. Introduction and Rondo Capriccioso - Your lie in April soundtrack.
8. Tear in my Heart - twenty one pilots
9. Somebody Else - The 1975
10. Don't Threaten Me With A Good Time - Panic! At The Disco
11. LA Devotee - Panic! At The Disco
12. Death of a Bachelor - Panic! At The Disco
13. Play That Song - Train

14. Sippy Cup - Melanie Martinez
Misc ::
A couple of weeks ago I went into Tiger and came out with like 5 notebooks. My favourite of the bunch is this pink A5 leather-look notebook that I've been using to jot down a few ideas and random lines of creative writing.

My final favourite is Alpro yoghurt - the strawberry & banana 'children's' yoghurt to be precise. It comes in a pack of four with two pear & peach ones which are okay but the strawb and banana ones are delicious. Enough so that I spend £1.80 per bloody box. I try my best to only buy it when it's on offer but sometimes a girl's just gotta have her kid's yoghurt, ya feel me?

  5. I'm going to have to check out A Court of Mist and Fury, any book I have read that you have recommended so far I have loved. We must have a similar taste. The back pack is gorgeous, would look so lovely in the summer time out exploring. As for the Alpro yoghurts I am obsessed with the raspberry and blackberry ones and buy them every week for work. The dessert versions are ridic expensive though. Have you tried their icecream before? YUMMMMMMMMMMMMMMMMMMMMMM!

  8. That backpack is just the prettiest thing ever! I can't justify adding another bag to my stocks but I also can't help envisioning this as the perfect backpack for my upcoming trip to Copenhagen!! x
