May, for me, felt like both the quickest and longest month in a while. I was waiting for May to roll around for months because I was waiting for SPNUK. Then it was over and it felt like the weeks just flew past. But it was also an antagonising wait until pay-day at the end of the month so I could buy my VanCon ticket. Nonetheless, we haven’t had a favourite’s post since February I think, so let’s get on with it shall we?
I feel like this is a given with how much I’ve been going on about it. But obviously my absolute favourite thing about last month, was the first weekend in May. SPNUK was definitely a highlight of this year, let alone just for May. I’ve done a small post already on it, but I’ll be posting other posts that go a bit more in-depth about certain aspects of the Convention, like autographs and photo-ops.
I’ll be honest, I didn’t think I would be as much of a fan as I am of this show. I was just laying in bed one night, just wanting something easy to watch. I stumbled across Rookie Blue, which admittedly has been on my to-watch list forever. The first few episodes took a while to grow on me but before I knew it, I was spending most evenings watching at least a few episodes. I like the fact that the seasons are only around 13 episodes because it doesn’t feel like too heavy an investment. That being said I was very disappointed to find that there is only 6 season. Having just started season 4, I’m not sure I’m ready for it to be over soon. If you’re wanting something that isn’t complicated and is just easy watching, I definitely recommend this!
Duck Tales Mug
I saw this on the Disney Store website a little while ago and fell in love straight away. When I visited Leicester a few weekends ago, I went into the Disney store, but I didn’t hold out hope that I’d find it in there. And lo and behold, there it was, nestled perfectly amongst the other mugs. I just needed it. As luck would have it, there was a 20% off in-store, so really I was saving money. (Well, expect the money I saved I put towards another mug, but we’ll just forget about that!)
A Court of Frost and Starlight
I absolutely loved the A Court of Thorns and Roses series (I promise my review will be up very very soon), but I’ll be honest, I forgot that I’d even pre-ordered A Court of Frost and Starlight. It was a lovely surprise to get the email from Amazon letting me know they’d delivered it. I haven’t read it yet, I think I’m trying to savour it a little bit longer, but I’m almost certain that I’ll get around to it this month and I honestly can’t wait.
Okay, so I’ve never been very fussed about earphone. Earphones are just earphones at the end of the day. Plus I’m not the sort of person who has a new pair every couple of months, I’d buy a pair of earphones and wouldn’t even think about needing another pair for at least a year. But when I got my new phone, I got these for free and I have to say I’m a fan. I like that I don’t have to plug them in and fiddle with the wire, the battery life on them is really really good, they’re not too big for my ears which is something I find a lot with earphones and it’s really good quality. They do a pair of headphone in exactly the same colour and I’ve been toying with the thought of buying a pair of headphones for a while, so they are definitely on my list.
Home for The Holidays Yankee Candle
Yes this is a Christmas candle, and yes I am aware that it was christmas over six months ago. But Christmas candles are a weakness for me. This is literally Christmas in a jar, and anyone who knows me that I love to make it a little Christmassy year round. The cinnamon and clove mean that my bedroom smells like Christmas for days on end and I love it.
Charlotte Tilbury Bond Girl Lipstick
This was featured in my February favourites and I’ve got a Charlotte Tilbury post going up soon but this is still my go-to lipstick. Even if I’m wearing no other make-up, chucking this on, makes me at least feel like I’ve kinda got my life together. It lasted me well through SPNUK and I can definitely say that will how full on and crazy that weekend was, it really tested the staying power of this lipstick and I was certainly impressed. There was no need for touch up before photo ops, or autographs or after dinner. So this one is going to be a sure favourite for a long time.
