    August Favourites

    August was a lush month, I travelled to Santorini, a destination I’ve been longing to go for since I was obsessed with The Sisterhood of the Traveling Pants series as a teen, to see my cousin get married, as well as enjoy a my first month in my new home. I am glad it’s September though, the beginning of my favourite season of the year. Here is everything I loved in August.

    May Favourites

    2018 Favourites

    I am reflecting on the good things I’ve discovered and enjoyed in 2018, before I feel sad, sentimental and nostalgic like I usually do when the New Year is approaching. My top 10 films of the year will come later, in case I see something in the next week that makes its way onto my list. For music, books, TV and more, here is my happy little list of things I’ve loved this year. EDIT: I remembered I saw another 2 West End shows this year: Hamilton and Everybody’s Talking About Jamie. After loving Hamilton for years and purchasing tickets a whole year before, the show was worth the wait.…
