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, Nerve, Insurgent, Cinderella and Shadowhunters have been my recent picks!
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.
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!).
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
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?
