April Favourites: Some Things I Finallly Tried and Loved

Sorry the external links won’t work for this post, this is the fourth time I have tried to post it and it’s crashed my computer each time. I’ll try to add them tomorrow but I just want to get this post up tonight so it’ll be link free for now.

This month I have mainly been using new things, which is unusual as a lot of the time it seems like my monthly favourites are full of old things I have rediscovered. It’s another big mix of things though I think it’s mainly beauty and accessories and a couple of them probably won’t be surprises if you follow my blog given the reviews I’ve given them recently.

I don’t think there’s been much music that I’ve been listening to really this month, a bit mix of a lot of older albums I found on my old mp3 player that only works when it’s plugged in so it’s been quite a bit of 90s cheese you get at school discos and early 2000s pop punk. TV shows though I have been watching some new things for once, I loved the Night Manager, I thought that Hugh Laurie and Tom Hiddleston were amazing in it and I really liked Tom Hollander too, he was a jerk but for some reason I liked him anyway. No spoilers so I won’t say any more. I also really loved the RSC Shakespeare Live thing that was on the BBC for the 400 year anniversary of Shakespeare’s death. The ‘to be or not to be’ bit made me laugh and I just liked the range that was on there. I have ended up going back to some old favourites like Red Dwarf and NCIS but those two new ones stood out a lot.

January Favourites: First of 2016

janfavs1

The first monthly favourites of 2016 and I’m still writing 2015 in every time I have to write the date, it’ll take a couple of months for me to get that right. This is kind of a December and January favourites because I didn’t do one for last month as I was still recovering from Christmas and by the time I was going to do it it was a couple of weeks in and not long till this one. This is another big mix though I think there’s more beauty stuff in it this time than I often do.

I have been watching a few other things I’ll put in here but they’re not ones I have on DVD. I think after Christmas and watching Santa Claus the Movie I got into a bit of a Dudley Moore phase and ended up watching a lot of his movies so I’ll include one in here, Arthur is just so funny and one I’ve already seen twice this month. I also really liked Arthur 2, I know that’s probably not a popular opinion but it was harmless fun, not as good as the first but still pretty good. TV wise I’ve loved the new series of Endeavour, I love the Shaun Evans and Roger Allam combination and the characters and stories are great as a detective show and being a young Morse but without trying to be too much like him or trying to copy John Thaw.

Advent 2015: Day 15

Processed with Moldiv

Since I first opened my M&S box there has been this amazing fruity sweet smell that wafts up every so often and I was looking forward to the product that went with the scent and today is the day I opened it. It’s the Roger and Gallet Hand and Nail Balm in Fleur de Figuier, which I think translates to flower of figs and I love it. Today’s Yankee Candle was another Angel’s Wings which is always good as I do like this scent, I’m actually burning some of the less year round scents over this to use them during the season and these can burn any time throughout the year.
