Shadowhunters: I never really got into the Shadowhunters book series when it first came out however I did enjoy the movie with Lily Collins so when my friend Barghavi suggested that we watch the TV show recently I agreed and I really got into it!! Some of my favourite characters include Isabelle and my favourite couple is definitely Magnus and Alec πŸ™‚

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 πŸ™‚

  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 πŸ™‚

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 πŸ™‚ 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 πŸ™‚

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 πŸ™‚ 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 πŸ™‚ The sizing is absolutely on point and they feel so comfortable πŸ™‚

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 πŸ™‚

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 πŸ™‚ There have also been a few musical films out recently including In the Heights and Everybody’s Talking About Jamie which were both phenomenal πŸ™‚

Let me know in the comments what you have been enjoying over the past few months πŸ™‚

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 πŸ™‚ 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 πŸ™‚

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 πŸ™‚ 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 πŸ™‚

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 πŸ™‚ I think my favourite seasons have been Season 1 and Season 3 and I can’t wait to see what Season 6 brings πŸ™‚ I think my favourite characters are Steve Arnott and Kate Fleming and definitely my favourite episode was the last episode of Season 3 πŸ™‚

  • 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 πŸ™‚ 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 πŸ™‚

  • Drivers Licence by Olivia Rodrigo: It seemed like at the start of January my entire for you page on TikTok was this song and I was living for it!!

  • Tangled Cruise Musical- Tangled is one of my absolute favourite Disney Movies and I have often thought it would make an amazing musical similar to the Aladdin musical that they did on Broadway so when my dad called me into the living room one day and showed me that he had found the Disney Cruiseline version of Tangled the Musical I was obsessed!! I was sat in awe the entire time and absolutely loved it πŸ™‚
  • The Prom- I am such a Musical Theatre nerd and although I have never seen The Prom live when I am really sad about I absolutely loved the movie musical version πŸ™‚ My favourite songs from the show are Alyssa Greene and Tonight Belongs to Us and they were absolutely amazing πŸ™‚ Meryl Streep is always spectacular in any role that she plays and so is Nicole Kidman πŸ™‚ I really hope that The Prom comes over to the UK when theatres reopen and I get to see it πŸ™‚
  • Hate Myself- Dodie Clark: I am a big Dodie Clark fan and have already pre-ordered her album and have seen her in concert numerous times so I always love it when she brings out new music πŸ™‚ I actually watched the music video for this song on my dog walk which was really nice and I absolutely loved it πŸ™‚
  • Perfect Planet- I am such a big fan of David Attenborough and absolutely love his series whenever he does them πŸ™‚ This series was so so interesting and focused on the main different weather patterns which was so interesting and how the animals have adapted to live with these different weathers πŸ™‚
  • Bridgeton + Bridgeton the Musical on TikTok- It seems like everywhere I go on TikTok there are different versions of the Bridgeton musical songs which I absolutely love with either different songs that people have written or covers πŸ™‚ I have currently watched the first four episodes so have 4 more to go!

The two that I got were a Dolphin and a turtle which were part of their ‘Rough and Tough’ range and they are so good! They have lasted Maya ages which is saying something as she usually breaks her toys within a few days and also they’re good for the environment as they are made from recycled plastic πŸ™‚

I love the little nods in this movie to the original but also the changes are amazing as well πŸ™‚ I love the addition of another bad-ass female being part of the hun army but then helping Mulan in the end and also the addition of Mulans sister is so sweet πŸ™‚
