Monthly Favourites: May 2015

Hey everyone! It’s that time again! June is officially here and that means that I can share what I loved during the month of May. Firstly, I wanna say that June is the best month of all months. Not only does it mark the official beginning of summer, BUT IT’S MY BIRTHDAY MONTH (WOOT WOOT)!! “I don’t know about you.. but I’m turning twenty-twooo..” Actually though. I’m turning TWENTY-TWO. Am I old now? I really don’t know how I feel about it, so I’m just going to leave it at that haha.

On to my favourites!! There weren’t very many fashion items that I loved during the month of May. I got many new pieces in preparation for summer, so there will definitely be tons of fashion favourites in the months to come. Some fashion items that I DID love during the month of May are my denim button-up skirt (which you all must know about by now haha.. I’ve talked about it enough :p), my children’s Adidas sneakers, and my new $4 canvas tote. The denim button-up skirt is self-explanatory. It’s amazing. I love it. Definitely going to wear the crap out of it. I don’t think I’ve quite introduced my Adidas babies though. They’re a children’s size 2. They have velcro. Need I say more baha? I thought it was a different take on the Adidas sneakers that are trending at the moment. They also fit me a heck of a lot better because they’re made for my baby feet. I know that velcro may seem ugly to some people, but I feel like we might see more velcro in the future? So far, it’s just me and Jared Leto. I love them. The last fashion favourite is the canvas tote that I purchased from Kensington market. It may be a little hipster, but I find it very handy when carrying lunches or an extra pair of shoes to work. There is no doubt in my mind that I used this bag for 20 out of the 31 days in May.

My other three favourites are a movie, a TV show, and a book. Avengers: Age of Ultron came out last month. I know it’s not typical for a girly girl like me to enjoy movies like Avengers, but without hesitation I can say that this movie is my favourite. I love Marvel movies. I also love all the Transformer movies. Those who know me well would say I’m sort of a geek. Speaking of geeks, a TV show that I discovered on Netflix during the month of May was Freaks and Geeks. Unfortunately there was only the one season, so I finished it pretty quick.. but I loved it nonetheless! I recognized so many faces!! They were all so young and talented. James Franco, Jason Segal, Seth Rogan, Shia LaBeouf, Lizzy Caplan (from Mean Girls), Leslie Mann (The Other Women and This is 40), and Linda Cardellini (she was in Avengers: Age of Ultron!!). These are only a FEW of the familiar faces!! Honestly, you just have to watch it. It’s so funny and original. It’s the best! You’ll enjoy it, I GUARANTEE IT. My final favourite for the month of May is a book. I read a lot of good books during the month of May. Three to be exact. I am so happy I got to read more than one. I’ve been dying to read for months and now I have some time to fully dedicate to reading. A book that stood out to me was Sharp Objects by Gillian Flynn. If you aren’t familiar with her, she is also the author of Gone Girl (the movie is on Netflix now!) which is another book I really enjoyed. It was a very thrilling novel. That’s all I can really say without giving it away! If you liked Gone Girl, you’ll love this one.

That concludes my May Favourites! I hope you enjoyed them! PLEASE consider watching Freaks and Geeks, Avengers: Age of Ultron, or even start reading Sharp Objects by Gillian Flynn! They were all so so good!

Hope you’re having a happy Friday!

Until next time!

April Favourites 2015

As you all know, it is May. Where the heck did April go?! I’m not to sure what the feedback was for my last post like this, but I enjoyed my “March Favourites” so much that I decided to do a similar post for April! Hope you guys don’t mind ha-ha.

A lot of my favourites for this month won’t come as a surprise to you. I’m pretty sure I’ve talked your guys’ ears off about most of them. For one, my Mackage bag. Still loving her, still treasuring her, still can’t believe she’s mine. I still tuck her into her dust bag at night. I’m also still loving my oversized denim jacket, and of course I’m still loving my sunglasses. I’m going to be honest you guys, I really think I am clinically obsessed with sunglasses. The amount of pairs that I have accumulated in the last month is embarrassing. Every time I go shopping, I gravitate towards the sunglasses and try a few on. I’m getting better at telling myself no though. Two favourites that I have not mentioned are Wentworth and Girl on the Train. Wentworth is a TV show that I found on Netflix. IT IS AWESOME. My honest opinion is that it is BETTER than Orange is the New Black. It’s definitely a little more intense. It’s Australian (cool accents are a bonus). There really isn’t much else that I can say besides that you should really watch it! If you’re into shows like Orange is the New Black but want something a little more “bloody” (for the lack of a better word), watch this show. Girl on the Train is the last but not the least of my favourites. It is one of the best books I’ve read in the last while. It was really hard to put down once I got into it. I don’t have a real picture of it because I borrowed the book from one of my managers at Topshop. I am SO GLAD that I did. I was tempted to keep it, but that would have been bad. It is such a good read in the sense that it kept me on my toes. It was a little bit of a mystery and kind of a thriller. It was just awesome. Please read it. I beg you all.

(Lol.) So that concludes April’s favourites! I really hope you guys enjoyed finding out what I loved during the past month. I’ll more than likely share my favourites for the month of May (unless you guys beg me to stop).

Hope you’re all having a good day! XX
