in march..


this just a quick monthly round up of some of my march favourites!

book:  A Man Called Ove: Fredrik Backman
       Although this book took me a while to pick up and read, once I did I flew through the chapters like there was no tomorrow.  I laughed, I cried, I cried while laughing and then I laughed while crying.  It's such a sweet book but it also has a very strong and positive message once you get past Ove's grumbling; the only thing about this book is that it's quite fragmented and the chapters don't follow on from each other chronologically which I both enjoyed but was also slightly bugged by as I got a little confused by the timeline in the middle- however this is probably due more to my concentration than the book itself and it's definitely going on my read again list as well as my recommend list!

film: My Big Fat Greek Wedding 2.
        Despite never having seen the first one (I know, I don't really know how I haven't) my mum and I spent last Friday afternoon at the cinema watching the second Greek Wedding film and I absolutely loved it! Funny, clever, heart warming and awkwardly cute; it made me smile, feel slightly sad and laugh out loud along with the rest of the cinema! Definitely recommend giving this one a watch- whether you've seen the first one or not as it all made sense to me (although I am planning to watch the first one soon!). 

evening: Tuesday
         I spent Tuesday evening in a pub with my college friends and in the first hour I'd smiled and laughed so much that my face ached.  None of the conversations were important or even made sense but it was such a lovely time, they are some of the only people with whom I can really let my guard down and just be ridiculous.

social media movement: all the twitter trends
       In the last few weeks several phrases and statements have reached the top 10 trending position on twitter including 'minorities are are not disposeable' 'bury tropes not us' and 'LGBT fans deserve better'.  Although this started out as a reaction to one lesbian character being killed off it has progressed into a movement that is slowly turning the tide with media outlets or companies taking notice and becoming aware of the situation and the trevor project donations going through the roof.  (For more information on the movement / how to get involved in choosing what we will trend next go to-

makeup product: Rimmel Lasting Finish Primer
       I have to admit that this is my first primer I've ever used but I'm really loving it; I've only worn it under foundation a few times so far but each time my makeup has looked a lot smoother and stayed put for hours.  At only £6.99 it's definitely something I'll  consider rebuying when it runs out as it does make a positive difference and hasn't caused any spots or blemishes to flare up.

outfit: 'Tea, Create, Sleep' Jumper

        A few weeks ago I was aimlessly scrolling through many different clothing websites when I spotted this jumper on which is so completely and utterly me I just had to buy it!  It's super comfy, a really nice light grey which looks good with blue jeans & black leggings (definitely a note worthy point.) and I'm so in love with it it's unreal!  Pretty much worn it non stop since it arrived (not even a week after I ordered it!) and unless the weather warms up a little bit I don't see that changing any time soon.
