July-ving and thriving Day 31: July favourites :)

I can’t believe that this is the final post of July-ving and Thriving!! I have had so much fun writing these posts and I hope you guys have enjoyed reading them 🙂 I will be taking a little break from blogging for two weeks and then will be back to my two post a week schedule after that 🙂 

  1. The Wiz- Since the start of lockdown I have been keeping up with the live shows being streamed on The Shows Must Go On and had actually never seen The Wiz before or heard any of the songs so when I found out it was being streamed I knew I had to watch it and so since I watched it on June 12th I have had those songs in my head 🙂 img_5532
  2. Alexa and Katie Part 4- I absolutely love this show and I was so sad that this was the last season but it was so amazing! I think they ended the series so well and I’m so excited to see what the two main actresses end up doing 🙂
  3. Lemons by Ashley Tisdale: I am a big fan of Ashley Tisdale and have been since High School Musical and am especially fond of her music so when she released her new album Symptoms I really loved it and have been listening to it ever since and then she released Lemons which I also really love 🙂 
  4. Indian Matchmaking- My friend Barghavi has been round quite a few days in the past week and a bit so we decided to binge watch this show which we absolutely loved! Its such a cool show and some of the people I absolutely loved 🙂 I really liked Nadia, Ankita and Vyasar 🙂 
  5. Holiday by Little Mix: I am a big fan of Little Mix so always try and listen to their new music straight away and holiday was no exception 🙂 I love the positive vibe to their music and am so excited for their new album 🙂 
  6. Folklore by Taylor Swift: As many of you will already know I am a big fan of Taylor Swift and have been loving her new album 🙂 I think my favourite songs would be The 1, Illicit Affaits, Invisible string and Mirrorball 🙂img_6290

July-ving and thriving Day 1: June Favourites :)

July-ving and thriving Day 1: June Favourites :)

Bombshell Concert- On the 21st of May the cast of Smash did a virtual reunion and also streamed the Reunion Concert that they did a few years ago with all of the songs from what would be the Bombshell musical 🙂 I was so excited when I heard that this was happening and I was definitely not disappointed! This reminded me how amazing the songs from Smash were and also how talented Katherine McPhee and Megan Hilty 🙂

Carrie Hope fletcher Harry Potter Quiz- On June 7th Carrie Hope Fletcher one of my favourite youtubers did a Harry Potter quiz on her Youtube channel which was completely free however she did ask you to donate and she managed to raise over £11,000 for the NAACP and also because of JK Rowlings transphobic comments Carrie made a donation to The Trevor Project which I think is awesome 🙂 She split the quiz into different classes for example Potions, Defence against the Dark Arts, History of Magic and also a general knowledge part 🙂

Bloom and Wild- On the 29th of April my best friend Barghavi sent me some flowers because we hadn’t seen each other in ages and she wanted to send me a little surprise to make me smile 🙂 Then on the 10th of June she sent me another package from Bloom and wild which was a little selection of succulents which were so so cute!! I absolutely loved them and will definitely be using this brand in the future to send presents to my friends ❤

Queer Eye S5- As many of you will already know I am a massive fan of the show Queer Eye on Netflix and their 5th season premiered in the first week of June 🙂

March 2020 Favourites :)

March 2020 Favourites :)

Noughts and Crosses TV Series- I read the Noughts and Crosses book series by Malorie Blackman in High School and loved it as it was such an interesting and different concept! When I found out that they were doing a TV Series of this book I was so excited 🙂 The actor and actress that were playing Callum and Sephy are absolutely amazing!! p086g7bk

Love Is Blind- I am a big fan of romance/Love Island style shows and Love Is Blind was no different! I started watching it with my mum this month and it is so cringey how could I not love it?!?! download

I Love Me- Demi Lovato: I am a big Demi Lovato fan and am also a big fan of self love/body positivity songs so this was right up my alley! I love all of the different references to her past that Demi has included in the music video and when I went to Birmingham at the start of this month with my friends this song was on repeat the whole time 🙂  Demi_Lovato_-_I_Love_Me

Be More Chill- I went to see Be More Chill on the 1st of March with my mum at The Other Palace and I absolutely loved it! I have been listening to the cast recording on repeat for a while now but never thought I would get to see it because it closed on Broadway but then they decided to bring it to the UK and also include some of my favourite actresses e.g. Millie O’Connell and Renee Lamb to name a few 🙂 If you get a chance I would highly recommend seeing this show 🙂

February Favourites 2020 :)
  1. Miss Americana- I am a big Taylor Swift fan so when I heard she was doing a documentary I was so excited and it was just as good as I hoped 🙂 I really enjoyed seeing her creative process and also hearing her point of view during some of the hard times in her life/career 🙂 I would highly recommend this documentary to any Taylor Swift fans 🙂
  2. To All The Boys I’ve Loved Before: PS I Love You- The first film of this series is one of my favourite films on Netflix and I became a huge Lana Condor and also Noah Centineo fan 🙂 This film also includes Jordan Fisher who I have been a fan of since seeing him in Liv and Maddie 🙂 This film definitely lived up to the hype and I’m so excited for the final film in the trilogy 🙂
  3. All the Bright Places- I read the Jennifer Niven book of this movie when on holiday in Mexico a few years ago and absolutely loved it, I ended up crying on my sunbed near the end of the book (if you know you know) and was very intrigued how they would be able to pull off the emotional climax of the book and also the rest of the story but they did it perfectly 🙂
  4. The Prom- As I’m writing this post I am actually listening to the soundtrack for this musical and I actually can’t believe its taken me so long to listen to this musical 🙂 They are releasing a movie musical of this show on Netflix later this year and I cannot wait!! Some of my favourite songs from the musical are: Love Thy Neighbour, Just Breathe, Alyssa Greene, Tonight Belongs To You 🙂

November Favourites 2019 :)

November Favourites 2019 :)
  1. Peter Hollens- I discovered Peter Hollens around Halloween this year as his Villain medley kept getting recommended to me so I finally listened to it and I absolutely loved it and couldn’t get it out of my head!!! He does covers and medleys of different Disney songs and also songs from different Broadway shows which is absolutely amazing 🙂
  2. The Circle- The Circle was all over social media in October so I finally got around to watching it a little while after it actually ended and I absolutely loved it! I never watched Season 1 but I’m kind of tempted to catch up on it since I loved Season 2 so much 🙂 My favourites were Tim and Woody 🙂
  3. The Politician- As a big fan of Ben Platt and also Ryan Murphy who created Glee this show was right up my street and absolutely hilarious! The show follows Payton Hobart on his quest to win his high school presidential election and all of the crazy situations he gets himself into along the way.
  4. Wishing for the normal- Soho Cinders: I am a big fan of Six and actually had the pleasure of seeing Millie O’Connell in Six a while ago and she was absolutely amazing so I was so interested to see what she ended up doing after finishing in Six and the show looks absolutely amazing! I absolutely love this song and have had it in my head since hearing it for the first time 🙂
  5. Stack It Up- Liam Payne: Written by Ed Sheeran which I am a big fan of this song has been in my head for the past month and a bit because it is so catchy! The song is going to feature on Liams upcoming debut album which I am very excited about! I wouldn’t have admitted it at the time but I was a One Direction fan so its always nice seeing their amazing solo work 🙂
  6. Queer Eye- My friends Poon and Chiara recommended this show to me when I went out to dinner with them a while ago so I finally decided to watch it this month and I am absolutely loving it!! I am a big fan of make-over shows and also self help books so this is an amazing combination of the two. I think my favourite of the Fab 5 would have to be Tan or Jonathan but they all have their amazing moments 🙂

October Favourites :)

October Favourites :)
  1. Jesy Nelson: Odd One Out- I am a big fan of Little Mix as you guys will already probably know and have followed them since they were on the X-Factor back in 2011. This documentary made me cry so many times and I think it is a must see for everyone! It shows that you never know what someone is going through behind the scenes and much words can affect people
  2. Bea Miller- On the 23rd of September I went to see Bea Miller live at O2 Islington and she was amazing! I have been listening to her music non-stop ever since 🙂 I think my favourite songs from her are S.L.U.T. or Feel Something.
  3. Downtown Abbey- I used to watch Downtown Abbey with my mum all of the time and we were really sad when it ended so when I found out they were doing a film I was so excited! Its the ultimate cosy film which is perfect for October 🙂
  4. MuchelleB- I have been on such a GYST the last few months so have been loving watching MuchelleBs videos and her life admin day vlogs as they always inspire me to sort my life out which is why I have been loving her vlogs 🙂 I always get into a GYST mood in September/October as it starts becoming cold and so you spend a lot of time indoors and its starting the run up to the new year 🙂
  5. 10,000 hours by Dan and Shay and Justin Bieber- I am a big fan of Dan and Shay and went to see them live in January which was amazing 🙂 They are amazing and I never would have put them together with Justin Bieber for a collab but it actually works 🙂 The song is so cute and I love that they all have their wives with them in the video 🙂

August Favourites 2019 :)
  1. Derry Girls- This show reminds me of a female Inbetweeners based in Ireland and I absolutely love it 🙂 Its great to have on in the background whilst your busy doing other things and I love seeing a bit of the history of the civil conflict in Ireland 🙂
  2. Aladdin Live Action 2019- I watched Aladdin recently and I absolutely loved it! I’m a big fan of the original film and also of Naomi Scott as she is such an amazing actress and singer 🙂 I didn’t think they would be able to top the original film however I loved the new song Speechless as it has such an important message and the melody is beautiful! I loved the girl power element that Naomi Scotts Jasmine brings to the film as well. img_0766
  3. Descendents 3- I have absolutely loved watching the Descendants franchise and have been following it since the start with Descendants 1 as I am a big Disney fan and am also a big fan of Dove Cameron and Sofia Carson 🙂 I always love the music and this new addition to the franchise definitely did not disappoint on that front! I’m definitely sad that the franchise is ending but I think they did a great job and I think it was a good time to do it 🙂
  4. Mean Girls afternoon tea at Duo London- My brother got me a wowcher for a Mean Girls Afternoon Tea for my 22nd Birthday and I went on it with my mum at the start of August 🙂 It was so so so much fun and I would highly recommend 🙂 The food was delicious, the staff were amazing, there was a DJ playing 90s/2000s hits and they also did a Mean Girls quiz and got volunteers to dance along to Jingle Bell Rock!! Processed with VSCO with c1 preset
