2 YEARS OF BLOGGING!

As of today, I've officially been blogging for 2 years which seems so strange to say! I feel like I've shared a fair amount but thought I would do a get to know me better post as it's a bit of fun! 

Favourite film?
 I can never seem to choose just one favourite but I'm pretty into mystery thriller type films - especially ones with a twist! For instance, I love things like Shutter Island and Inception, anything that keeps you guessing or has an ambiguous ending. I also enjoy a good comedy, one that springs to mind is Hot Fuzz as it also has that twist element. 
What is my Zodiac sign and do I agree with it?
Well, I was born on March 10th, making me a Pisces. I wouldn’t say I’m overly clued up about horoscopes and astrology, I do find it interesting though! In terms of me relating to the general description of a Pisces, there are some aspects that describe me well for sure. In particular, the creative, charismatic, intuitive and adaptable traits describe me pretty well. A…

MAY MONTHLY FAVOURITES

Isn't it mad that we're halfway through 2018 already, or as I like to think - halfway to Christmas again, haha! I'm sure I always say this, but it really feels like this year has gone by so quickly! May was a pretty good month, we had some gorgeous weather which always puts me in a great mood but I also find that when the sun is out, blogging tends to take a backseat which I really want to improve on over June! Anyway, here are my favourites for May!


Lifestyle

In my last favourites, I touched upon how I wanted to keep up with my Spring photography and like I just mentioned, we've been pretty lucky with the weather in May so that's something I've enjoyed doing a lot! It's been really lovely being able to spend more time outside and I've made the most of it by going on regular walks, it's a great way to relax and clear your mind and I've been able to take some great photos too!

Beauty

There isn't really any new makeup I've been loving recently but I do have a few things to mention! Firstly are the Soft & Gentle anti-perspirant deodorants, I've actually used these for ages and rarely use any other brands because they work so well for me! I love the different scents and the last well too so I feel fresh all day, my favourites are the Wild Rose & Vanilla or the Jasmine & Coco Milk but I've tried the others and like them all! Since I'm such a fan I thought I had to mention them in a favourites post! A while ago I briefly mentioned that I'd got a Neal's Yard shower gel set for my birthday and have recently started using them, the scents are quite different to what I normally use but they feel like you're treating yourself because of the combinations just work so well and they're so fragrant! I'm loving anything rose scented at the moment so the Rose and Geranium is my go to!


TV

So, even though Riverdale was on for months, the finale was actually in May so I thought I'd give it a mention today! I really got into it this season, I liked the first one a lot but I think that because there were more episodes I was waiting to find out what happens more so naturally became more obsessed! I've always been a fan of teen dramas with a bit of mystery and thrill mixed in but what I really like is the dynamic of the show and how they don't take it too seriously, a lot of the plot is kind of ridiculous but they balance it well and keep you engaged. I really enjoyed the musical episode (then again I always do), it was madness but I loved it and was singing the songs for days after! I absolutely love the cast, in and out of the show, Betty and Jughead are my absolute favourites!

Food

I actually wouldn't say I'm a huge crisp lover (unless it's chips and dip) but this month I tried all the special Walkers 'Flavours of the Decades' and have found myself wanting more! I'm always up for trying different flavours of crisps, it's interesting to see what works and what doesn't, my favourites are probably the Chicken Tikka Masala which I was very intrigued about since that's my go to curry, or the Coronation Chicken but I could easily snack on any of them!


Drink

It was only a couple months ago that I included tea in my favourites post, but here we are again! This time however it's a green tea, or more specifically the White Hibiscus and Peach Green Tea that Taylor's of Harrogate do! Green tea is quite an acquired taste so having an extra flavour that's a little sweeter can definitely make it more enjoyable if you're not a fan usually! Peach is often one of my favourite scents and flavours so I knew that I'd like this, it's really light and fresh which is perfect for a morning pick me up! Also I love the packaging too, it's just so pretty!


Fashion

Since we've had some sun recently I've been living shorts as I hate being too hot and hey, if it means I get a little tan then it's a win win! Towards the end of the month, I bought a new pair of denim shorts from Primark as needed some new ones and these were exactly what I was looking for! They're a perfect length since they're not too short and at £6 I couldn't say no could I, hopefully, I'll get a lot of wear out of them!


I can't believe I've almost been doing these monthly favourites posts for a whole year now, I find them so interesting to look back on! I'd also love to know what things you enjoyed through May so please leave me a comment below if you like!

  6. It's pretty crazy how fast this year has gone already - I can't believe it's June! It will be Christmas in no time! It feels like each year is going by faster. Riverdale is such a good programme, I didn't watch it for a while and then decided to as I had nothing else to watch and I was pretty annoyed that I put it off for so long because it was so good! I actually didn't know Walker's were doing that with the crisps, it's interesting to see the different flavours throughout the years.

    I haven't heard of Walkers chips before. Are they similar to Lay's chips? Thanks for sharing your faves!

30 SHOWS TO WATCH ON NETFLIX

As an avid user of Netflix, I am more than aware of the time spent trying to find something rather than actually watching anything. I've gone through many different series on there so I thought I'd share some here! I know there is quite a few I've missed off that people would put at the top of their list and I need to get round to watching them for sure!
Breaking Bad  I'm sure most people will have watched this already but if not, now is the time. I put it off for way too long but it lived up to my expectations. Prison Break  This series is tense and will make you gasp at how Michael Schofield's brain works, I'm also really glad that a Season 6 has been confirmed. Pretty Little Liars  One of my favourite series of all time, the perfect combination of high school drama and a thrilling mystery. Gossip Girl  Another classic teen drama that follows Manhatten's elite students and their various scandals through an anonymous gossip site.  Riverdale  Based on the Archie Co…

THE AUTUMN TAG

I haven't done a tag in quite a while and always find them great fun, so I was pleased when I saw that Michael had tagged me in The Autumn Tag! Essentially this tag is a set of questions all about, you guessed it - Autumn! Definitely go and check out Michael's post here as he had some great answers, thanks again for tagging me! 
What signifies the start of Autumn for you?
Once it gets chillier out, the evenings get darker earlier and the leaves start changing. Also by October 1st I always feel ready for Autumn.
What is your favourite Autumn scent?
I love things like cinnamon, cedarwood, black pepper - anything spicy, woody or earthy really.
What is your favourite Autumn colour?
Burgundy is one of my favourite colours this time of the year, a lot of my outfits tend to include something burgundy around Autumn. I also love all the colours the leaves turn too, it looks so pretty!                                                Are you a fan of a Pumpkin Spice Latte?
This may come as a…

JANUARY MONTHLY FAVOURITES

Well, once again January has lasted twice as long as every other month does (seriously though, why does it always feel like that?) Anyway, I thought I'd share the things I've enjoyed during the start of 2019. 
Creativity 
After receiving a new camera for Christmas, I've enjoyed taking photos whenever I can. I definitely need to get out and about to test it properly but it's been great just experimenting! I'm really hoping that we get some good snow because I'd love to get some great photos of that, I always think it looks so pretty! However, if all else fails, you can always count on a good sunset for a perfect photo opportunity. 
Food
I feel like I have to mention all leftover snacks from Christmas firstly as it's always a good day when you remember you've got a whole chocolate orange to eat still. I also am a big fan of fudge in general and hadn't had any for ages so was pleased when my mum picked up some of the Rydale Farm Gold Collection all butt…
