July Favourites

Hello, this is a slightly stagey edition, where I bang on about Hamilton and Mary Poppins, then taunt you with some seaside pictures!


After Hamilton did so well at the Tony's I could no longer ignore the soundtrack I had saved on my Spotify. This has some properly good tunes - my go to are the opening number Alexander Hamilton  as well as My Shot and Stay Alive. Just by listening to the soundtrack you can tell why this has made such an impact on Broadway. Its innovative stylistically, its not a predominantly white production- reflecting how America looks now "We're telling the story of old, dead white men but we're using actors of color, and that makes the story more immediate and more accessible to a contemporary audience."* Its relevant to our time especially with the political unrest with Donald Trump being the Republicans presidential candidate. That's the great thing about theatre, as well as reflecting life it also has the ability to make you think, whilst putting on a highly entertaining show. I cannot wait for this to come to London, I will definitely be purchasing tickets.

Mary Poppins

If you have kept up to date with my blog I am sure you will be well aware of my love for this show. I wrote a glowing review after seeing it,  read that here.

Always With Love by Giovanna Fletcher
I am a big fan of Giovanna's books, I have read all her other previous Novels (not Novellas) so there was going to be high chance of my liking this book.  Giovanna's style is so easy and enjoyable to read. This follows on the story of Sophie and Billy, Sophie being an ordinary girl from a Kent village and Billy Buskin the movie star. Whilst it seems like a pretty cliche kind of romance book, it looks at the pressure which the press and social media can put on a couple in the spotlight. The ending of this book got me like 👏❤️❤️

Pokemon Go

I am not very good or hard core, however I am enjoying it and the fact it drags me out of my bedroom into the big wide world.

Trip to sheringham

Ah this was just the loveliest day, to go to the Beach in England and not to be cold, is quite frankly unheard of. Alas it was hot for the most part of the day with dipping my feet in the sea being very necessary. It was hazy sunshine in the afternoon, so like every brit I got caught out and got burnt. It was a lovely just to chill out and be somewhere different. Sheringham has to be one of my favourite places, blue water, cute shops and great fish and chips.

Thanks for popping by!
