My head hurts, I've got a chesty cough, wrapped up in a new Topshop grey scarf with my snuggie and Big Brother on in the background. But there's so much to be happy about, and here are just of few reasons.
Cheers to the freakin' weekend.
Lazy mornings with coffee in hand, blankets, wrapping yourself silly, exploring, binge-watching TV and eating coco pops. That's what I'm talking about.
I am a firm lover of the weekend, but who isn't? This weekend we ate Dominos, slept in, went to Falmouth with a few friends and walked from Gylly towards Maenporth. Then we ended it the best way possible - with an unreal sunset.
La La Land - duh
I'm still not over this film - it was SO emotional and beautiful! It kind of came out of nowhere, but as soon as I watched the trailer I couldn't wait to see it. Ryan Gosling paired with Emma Stone is just the most dreamy duo and made the film so magical. The cinematography, music and whole production completely captures your heart. And if you're anything like me, you'll come out of the cinema sobbing all the way home. But don't worry - it's worth it. Also, like pretty much everyone - I've been having the Spotify playlist on repeat every single damn day.
Booking a holiday
We're going to Croatia! This is the first year where we have booked a holiday so far in advance and I cannot wait. It's also the first time Jack and I are off with friends - so sorry in advance if we're a nightmare Harv and Nik. The thing is we were all pretty indecisive; after a week or so searching the internet for the best deals and places to go, we just couldn't decide. We went to Thomson and spoke to a travel agent and it was such a good call; I'd definitely recommend doing this rather than spending hours looking on the internet. We looked at a few places including Greece, Portugal and Italy but we finally decided on Croatia and well, yayay!
Big Brother - squirms.
Sorry but this is my ultimate guilty pleasure! My excuse is, I studied psychology and it's basically a social experiment and I just love seeing how people react being trapped inside a house. This year's is hilarious, I don't like a single one of them but I just can't look away.
If you're in need of something to binge watch, The OA is the one. I was so obsessed with this sci-fi series, it has you completely hooked. Jack and I finished it pretty quickly, it was so intense and the storyline is so good - it's like nothing I have ever watched, combining fantasy and supernatural elements. You literally have no idea what's happening or if anything is really how it seems. I'm not going to say anything more than that, because it's one of those shows that you just need to experience yourself.
The Boardmasters line up
Although I have always lived in Cornwall, I've never been to Boardmasters - hangs my head in shame. But once I saw that Two Door Cinema Club and Alt-J will be headlining, well, things got exciting. I'm not sure whether to get a day or weekend ticket, but we'll see.
What are your current faves?
