March Favourites

Hello we've reached an end of another month, so crazy. We had a tease of what spring will be like on Good Friday and I'm now looking forward to warmer times. In April I'm going to my first Hen Do (I'm not the one getting married for obvious reasons) which is very exciting, and I have two jobs once more so my bank account is going to be a lot happier!

All this month I have been loving overnight oats. Either chocolate overnight oats (which I think of as healthy cocopops) with chopped up banana or almond milk oats with chopped up banana anblueberries. I know it seems lots of effort to prepare the night before, but there is nothing better than having to make 0 effort in the morning!

This month I've either been in work clothes or the pyjamas I've immediately climbed into once getting home. My favourite outfit detail has been these absolutely adorable bunny socks from topshop which I wore on Easter Sunday.

TV and Film
Heading Out - Sue Perkins
I have been having a right Sue Perkins moment!! This is a great sitcom, about a vet who is too nervous to come out to her parents as she turns 40, so her friends decide she needs some psychological treatment to help her get over her fears. Full of awkward moments, laughs and guest stars such as Dawn French and Mel Giedroyc. This is a perfect British sitcom and its truly a shame there are only 6 episodes. Well worth a watch.

Man Up
Continuing with the British theme, (despite the fact Lake Bell is indeed American shh) we move to the romantic comedy. Nancy is a mid thirties singleton and Jack is 40 recently divorced. Due to a case of mistaken identity, Nancy accidentally becomes Jack's blind date who is supposed to be 24 year old Jessica. I mean this sounds like a great storyline, doesn't it?!  This film is up there with Love Actually in my books. You can buy this BUT you can watch it on Amazon Prime video.

The Good Lie
I feel like the trailer sets this film up to mediocre at best, so don't watch that, this really is a strong and emotive film. It begins as civil war is breaking out in Sudan, innocent villagers inner stuck in the crossfire and mass killings. Survivors have to walk 1000 miles to Kenya before reaching a refugee camp. Years pass as the characters in the film arrive as children to the camp, are transported to America. After being displaced from their sister they have to adjust to their new lives in the west supported by Carrie played by Reese Witherspoon.

I don't know why but I've only just started watching Helen. It started when she announced she was doing daily vlogs as they are my absolute favourites to watch. I like her style and content, and I'm glad she's not the typical monochrome, nude lipstick loving youtuber because I'm bored of that.

Spotify playlists -
Acoustic Covers
My favourite songs include You've Got Time, Out of the Woods and Pompeii.

The Great British Breakfast
My favourite songs include Suddenly I See, Rolling in the Deep and Put Your Records On.

Finally I just wanted to let you know what videos I have uploaded this month.

Thanks for popping by!
