I’m seriously late in the game. Again. Well, crisp and clear apologies and onwards and upwards we go. May has mostly been spent toodling around Paris followed by a swift return of the double Ds (dance and dissertation, don’t you know). Here’s what I got up to this May:
Watching: Orange is the New Black
Another Netflix cracker. Different though, because this series has been made and produced exclusively for Netflix (i.e. the show never has, and never will be on regular TV). Which I like, makes it kinda exclusive. It basically involves a lot of crazy women running around prison getting up to prison antics. Its dark, sarcastic and very very funny. Definitely worth a watch. (Plus, Season 2 came out yesterday!)
Nothing too exciting kids, just about 100 journal articles and 50 books, all working towards my Literature Review for my dissertation. #MastersLife
Listening To: Regina Spektor
So this is connected to my watch: Orange is the New Black. The titles include Regina Spektor’s ‘You’ve Got Time’ and since then I’ve been hooked, all over again on her. My 2009 phase loved Regina and the likes of Imogen Heap, and they’re well and truly back in force.
Wearing on my body: Primark PJs
It got to that point in life where you look in your pyjama draw and just think ‘its time for a clear out’. You know the feeling. So off I toddled to Primark and got 4 beaut colourful and comfy sets of summer PJs for just £5 each. I work from home a lot, unashamedly in my PJs, so I was basically investing in work wear. Sure.
Wearing on my face: Benefit High Beam highlighter
The dance world has taught me a few of life’s great make-up lessons, one of which is contouring. Benefit High Beam highlighter was made for this, and can really change the shape and angles of your face. I use this highlighter just above and below bronzer to enhance my cheekbones, it also gives me a real glow.
This month, I’ve been attempting to eat clean (as the new craze would say). I’m not in any drastic weight loss attempts, it’s just nice to have a colourful and healthy plate full of veggies that keeps me full and does wonders for my hair and skin. It also makes me feel better about life when I have a Camembert craving.
With my ‘eat clean’ and ‘Teatox’ it really looks like I am out on a healthkick?! No. Bootea is titled a ‘Teatox’ (they so clever) but has done nothing really of the sort for me. It tastes mediocre, performs none of the detoxing effects it claims to and the teabag tab is too short. The best thing about it is the packaging.
What did you get up to this May?
