Blogmas Day 29: December Favourites 2021 :)

Spiderman No Way Home and Hawkeye: I am a massive Marvel fan and we have been so blessed this month with two AMAZING Marvel projects!! I have been really enjoying all of the Marvel TV shows that have been released and I think Hawkeye might be my favourite of all of the shows 🙂 I am a big Hailee Steinfield fan so seeing her be introduced to the MCU was really cool and I’m a big fan of Yelena as a character 🙂

Spiderman has always been one of my favourite MCU characters and this movie has had so much hype around it but it definitely lived up to it!! I don’t want to say too much more because it hasn’t been out for very long and I don’t want to give away any spoilers 🙂

Enchanto Album: Many of you will already know that I am a big Lin Manuel Miranda fan so when I heard that he had written the songs for this new Disney film I was so happy and excited 🙂 I absolutely love this album and I think my favourite song would have to be We Don’t talk about Bruno which is so funny! 🙂

Brighton Lanes: Early this month my parents and I went to the Brighton Christmas festival and went shopping in all of the little shops in the lanes 🙂 Some of my favourites include the flagship Lucy and Yak store, Berts Homestore and a few different Harry Potter/Comic books stores which are all really cool- I have always absolutely loved Brighton as a city for many reasons including the shopping and especially near to Christmas its an amazing place to look for interesting Christmas presents 🙂

I don’t have a lot of favourites this month as a lot of this month has been taken up by Christmas shopping, working and spending lots of time with Maya which has been so much fun 🙂

Let me know in the comments what you have been loving this month 🙂

Recent Favourites :)

Recent Favourites :)

Its been a while since I’ve written a favourites post but I thought I would write down some of my favourites since June!! Its taken me a while to get round to writing this post because in June I went back to work which has been super busy but without further ado lets get into it 🙂

  1. Black Widow- I absolutely LOVED this movie!!! I am a big Marvel fan but also I love that Marvel are finally giving this character her own movie and paving the way for female superheroes! Natasha and Yelena were absolutely amazing and hilarious while trying to navigate their sisterhood and it was so interesting hearing about their background and their childhood.

Ghosted my therapist by Rachel Bochner- I actually found this song on TikTok a long time ago and completely forgot about it until about 2 months ago it came up on my FYP again and I LOVED IT! It got stuck in my head for weeks and I have only just got it out! Its so catchy and funny and very smart 🙂

Prattle and Pages Podcast by Carrie Hope Fletcher- I am a big fan of Carrie Hope Fletcher and recently she started a Bookstagram which I obviously followed because as most of you will know I also love books! About 2 weeks ago Carrie started a podcast with the same name Prattles and Pages where she will rate the books she reads and just chat about them which is such a cool concept 🙂 The first book she reviewed was Daisy Jones and the Six which I actually read recently and her analysis was spot on and I can’t wait to hear her opinions on even more books 🙂

Joanie clothing- This was another thing that I have discovered through Carrie Hope Fletcher that I had to mention because I was absolutely AMAZED! I ordered 2 jumpsuits and 2 dresses and I absolutely LOVE them 🙂 The jumpsuits actually fit me which is astonishing as I am only 5’3 so usually jumpsuits swamp me and the dresses were both gorgeous 🙂 The sizing is absolutely on point and they feel so comfortable 🙂

The last thing on my favourites list is the book The Seven Husbands of Evelyn Hugo which I’m not going to talk that much about because I have already talked about it in my reading challenge post but I wanted to mention it here because it was such a good book and one of the best I’ve read this year 🙂

There have been a few TV shows that have come out with new seasons including: Sex Education and Brooklyn 99 which I have also loved to special mention to them as well 🙂 There have also been a few musical films out recently including In the Heights and Everybody’s Talking About Jamie which were both phenomenal 🙂

Let me know in the comments what you have been enjoying over the past few months 🙂

May Favourites 2021 :)

May Favourites 2021 :)

Lucy + Yak- When I saw my friend Ellie a few weeks ago she was wearing a pair of Lucy and Yak dungarees and I absolutely loved the look of them so I went onto their website to have a look at what they sold, I was hooked! I ordered three different things from their website that day and then when my Mum and I went to Brighton at the end of April I went into their shop in the lanes to have a look and bought another couple of bits 🙂 I absolutely love their style and the different colours of their clothes and also that they are a sustainable and ethical brand which I love 🙂

Shadow + Bone- If you have been on TikTok in the past few weeks you will no doubt have seen videos relating to Shadow and Bone and its also Number 7 in TV programmes on UK Netflix at the moment 🙂 I have never read the books but after watching the series I really want to! I absolutely love Alina as a character and there are so many interesting characters and its such a cool concept 🙂

Line of Duty- I have been watching Line of Duty with my parents over the past few weeks and its absolutely AMAZING- I am currently on Season 5 and its been so so good so far 🙂 I think my favourite seasons have been Season 1 and Season 3 and I can’t wait to see what Season 6 brings 🙂 I think my favourite characters are Steve Arnott and Kate Fleming and definitely my favourite episode was the last episode of Season 3 🙂

I’m not pretty- Jessia: It was actually my friend Hannah who sent me this song and I love it so much and have been listening to it non-stop! 🙂 I will definitely be checking out more of her music when I get the chance 🙂

Deja Vu- Olivia Rodrigo: I absolutely loved Olivias first release Drivers Licence and she has absolutely smashed it out of the park with her follow up song Deja Vu 🙂 I’m so so excited for her album to be released and I would highly recommend her music to any Taylor Swift fans! The video is also so clever 🙂

Dancing with the devil- Demi Lovato: As many of you will know from previous posts I am a big Demi Lovato fan so have been listening to her new album on repeat 🙂 I love this album as it is so raw and might be one of my favourite albums of hers! I actually have a post coming out in the next few weeks about some of my favourite songs and lyrics from this new album so be sure to keep an eye out for that 🙂

Fearless (Taylors version)- Taylor Swift: I am also a big Taylor Swift fan so am so excited for all of her re-released albums especially if this one is anything to go by!! I love the songs From the Vault and also hearing how her voice has matured 🙂 I wrote a post a few weeks ago about some of my favourite songs from this re-released album and also some of my favourite lyrics 🙂

Lazy Baby- Dove Cameron: I have loved Dove Cameron since she was on Liv and Maddie and have followed her music career since then-I love her music and this one of no different 🙂 I’m so excited for when she finally releases an album or EP 🙂

The Circle: I actually didn’t watch the first season of the Circle and still haven’t however I really started to get into the show during the second season and also watched the Circle USA Season 1 which was sooo good so when this season started I actually didn’t start the show until about a week in because I didn’t know it was back but then I was hooked!! I think my favourite people were Nana Dot (Scott Paige) and Syed (Hashu)

Chocolate Little Moons- My friend Barghavi actually introduced me to these a few weeks ago as she came round with boxes of Mango, Chocolate and Matcha Little Moons that she had bought for us to try 🙂 THEY WERE SO NICE!! I liked the Mango ones but the chocolate ones were AMAZING!

Falcon and the Winter Soldier- I am a big Marvel Nerd and so have been absolutely LOVING this series 🙂 Bucky is one of my favourite Marvel characters and seeing him and Sam interact is so cute! As I’m writing this post I have watched up until Ep 5 of the series and am so excited for the series finale on Friday!! 🙂

March Favourites 2021 :)
  • Moxie- I read this book a few years ago while on holiday in Mexico and absolutely LOVED it!! It was one of my favourite books and I still think about it to this day 🙂 When they announced that they were making this into a movie I was so so excited and it did not disappoint 🙂 If you fancy an easy watch feminist movie then this is the perfect movie 🙂 It discusses many important topics in todays society mixed in with some teen drama and feminist manifestos 🙂
  • Demi Lovato- Dancing with the Devil- I have been a big Demi Lovato fan since she was on the Disney channel in Camp Rock and Sonny with a chance and have followed her battle with mental health and addiction and have watched her two other documentaries Simply Complicated and Staying Strong so stayed up late to watch the first two part of this documentary and it was amazing and so raw and I’m so happy she seems to be doing better and am so excited for this new chapter of music 🙂
  • Wandavision- I am a huge Marvel Nerd and am so excited for this new phase of Disney+ Marvel shows!! Wanda is one of my favourite Marvel characters and her and Vision are my favourite couple in the MCU 🙂 I loved the new characters being introduced especially Agatha and the inclusion of some other characters from the MCU e.g. Darcy and Monica Rambeau 🙂
  • Brooklyn 99 Season 7- Brooklyn 99 is one of my FAVOURITE tv show so I was so excited for the new seasons so watched it while it was airing in the US but have rewatched it (in an afternoon….. ooops) since it came onto Netflix and absolutely loved it just as much as when I watched it the first time 🙂
  • Raya and the last dragon- THIS IS ONE OF MY NEW FAVOURITE DISNEY MOVIE!!! I loved all of the characters, Raya and Sisu are absolutely amazing and Tuk-Tuk is adorable!! I have been meaning to re-watch it since watching it for the first time on Barghavis birthday at the start of the month and definitely will be at some point in the near future 🙂
  • CommonRoomCandleCO- One of my favourite Tiktokers does a segment where she talks about some of her favourite Harry potter themed small businesses and this company came up a few weeks ago and I was so intrigued that I decided to order a few candles as I was running low- the candles smell absolutely AMAZING and when they arrived you could see how much care and love had been put into not just the candles but the packaging of the items as well 🙂 If you are a Harry Potter fan I would highly recommend checking out her website and I believe that she is releasing some Percy Jackson themed candles soon as well 🙂

February Favourites 2021 :)

February Favourites 2021 :)

Skin- Sabrina Carpenter- Ever since Girl Meets World I have been a big fan of Sabrina Carpenter and absolutely love her music so I’m always excited when she comes out with new songs and Skin was no exception 🙂

Full Course Meal- Jessie Paege- I am a big fan of Jessie Paeges music and she has been coming out with new music recently which I love 🙂 One of my favourite songs of hers is Skeleton and this has very similar vibes to that which I love 🙂

My Mum Tracy Beaker- When I was younger I used to love Jaqueline Wilsons books and have read most of her older books and I was an especially big fan of her Tracy beaker series so when they announced this series I was so excited as it has something for everyone as older watchers can relate to Tracys struggles with trying to find her way in the world as an adult and kids can relate to Jess 🙂

Fate- I never watched The Winx club saga as a kid but my friend Hannah recommended this show to me so I thought I would give it a go and I absolutely loved it!! I really really hope there is a season 2 especially since I love the girl power vibe to this show!! I feel like I am very much like Terra in that she seems really sweet but can actually be a bit of a badass and also I really like succulents and plants as well 🙂

Always and Forever- I am a big fan of the To All the Boys I’ve loved before series and am so sad that this is the last one but I absolutely loved it! The series is so over the top cheesy but I absolutely love it and sometimes thats exactly what you need 🙂 I love the girl power sister vibe of the Covey girls 🙂
