Lately on Netflix #5

One of my favourite ventures has been writing about what shows I’ve been diving into on Netflix – some experimental, some anticipated and some that are pure guilty pleasures (i.e. you know it’s bad but it’s just so good). A couple of these were streamed a few months ago actually whilst some others are very recent. I’m onto a new series now called Mindhunter but feel free to recommend me any series/films that you think I should check out! Enjoy. Rhythm and Flow I like some hip hop but I don’t traditionally listen to the music enough to know about all the artists involved so it was interesting to watch this and meet some of the producers behind-the-scenes! Besides that, I loved how hilarious Cardi B was throughout the series – her one-liners just crack me up. (I’m not necessarily a huge fan of her music but I love her personality – she’s one of a kind!) Rhythm and Flow is a rap competition that seeks to find new artists to sign across 3 different …

My Current Playlist #3

For those unfamiliar to this series, I simply post 30 songs that I have been recently listening to in the past few weeks. My playlist can be very mixed as I tap into a lot of different genres as to avoid repeating what’s already being played on mainstream radio. Oh, and there are a few Christmas songs which are no longer relevant but were when I was compiling this list, haha! Enjoy. 🙂 Here are my top 30 picks as of recent: Billie Eilish – bellyache Billie Eilish – watch Billie Eilish – all the good girls go to hell TSHA – Me You Tones and I – Dance Monkey Mabel – Loneliest Time of Year Lewis Capaldi – Before You Go Stormzy – Vossi Bop Stormzy – Superheroes Stormzy – Do Better Stormzy – Lessons Stormzy ft. MNEK – Blinded By Your Grace (part 2) Harry Styles – Adore You Harry Styles – Falling The Weeknd – Blinding Lights Sam Smith – Get Here (cover) blackbear – hot girl bummer blackbear – Weak When …

If We Were Having Coffee #5

Happy new year, loves! I actually haven’t written one of these in a good 5/6 months so what better way to start the year off than with some coffee time on the blog? It’s undoubtedly still winter so grab your hot beverage and catch up with me below on where I’ve been and what I have set for 2020: If we were having coffee, I would tell you… Like every year, I make a group of New Years resolutions. Obviously, a good half of them are the same like any other year – read more, do more exercise, eat better, sleep better. This year, I decided that I would learn to cook and make some yummy new dishes. Towards the end of 2019, I got really bored of what I was bringing into work everyday food-wise – I just felt uninspired. I love food but to not put that same passion into cooking is quite frankly disappointing. I mean, I know how to cook but it would just be nice to make something new and …

My Current Playlist #2

If you follow me on my Instagram, you’ll know that one of my favourite things that I love to upload on my IG Stories is screenshots of what I’m listening to on Spotify at that moment. I am on the constant search for new artists and tend to support smaller indie artists now since I’ve rinsed my mainstream playlists like a million times – bored is an understatement. Can we please just talk about Harry Style’s recent SNL live performances though?! The man is doing no wrong! So inclusive! (This is also coming from someone who’s traditionally not a 1D fan.) Here’s my newly assembled list of 30 songs that I’ve been enjoying as of late: Keshi – 2 soon Keshi – summer Keshi – right here Zedd, Kehlani – Good Thing Why Mona – Wannabe (Spice Girls cover!) Lauv – Bracelet OneRepublic – Rescue Me Noah Kahan – False Confidence Harry Styles – Lights Up Harry Styles – Watermelon Sugar Chance the Rapper (ft. John Legend) – All Day Long Chance the Rapper (ft. …

Empties in Tens #3

I’ve been splitting my time living between two different places from weekdays to weekends so naturally, I have two collections of products per place as well as two different beauty routines. You can bet that collecting empties has been a little awkward and inconvenient but I’m making it work. This compilation is not even half of what I’ve accumulated so far! The plan is to ultimately write about it all before the end of the year so that I can successfully throw everything out and start 2020 on a clean slate. Let’s begin shall we? + Would repurchase– Will not bother again= Neutral/Indifferent + MAC Cleanse Off Oil– Sukin Cleansing Gel+ Witch Toning Lotion+ Poppy Austin Hyaluronic Acid= Clinique Vitamin C Capsule+ Clinique Moisture Surge+ Clinique Dramatically Different Gel+ (Jumbo size)+ Bioré UV Gel Sunscreen+ LUSH Sleepy= Wilkinson’s Sword Quattro Razor Blades+ Maybelline Age Rewind Concealer in Light+ Etude House Drawing Eyebrow Duo– Mizon Rice Real Cleansing Foam *Please note that some of the empties are not pictured as I have thrown them out prior …
