    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. Lover I listened to this for the first time by the pool on holiday and didn’t like it at all. I even disliked the previous single I liked. But since I’ve been home and re-listened, I focused on…

I saw it on Amazon Prime and binged the first…

    April Favourites

    Now that I’m compiling a list of favourites each month they seem to be moving even quicker than usual. April was a nice month. Easter weekend was beautiful and everything else around it has been pleasant, including these things: Waitress This month I got to experience a West End show I’ve been intrigued to see since I heard it was making it’s way over from Broadway. I watched the film Waitress about ten years ago on Film4, as I had seen that Keri Russell starred in it. I enjoyed it and, no pun intended, found it sweet. It was adapted into a musical a few years ago, but the thing…
