TV – Queer Eye, Season 2
The Fab Five are BACK! Deciding which one you love best is even harder than ever as they flood the world with positivity and kindness and tasteful interiors. I’ve learned my lesson from last time and I’m pacing myself. I absolutely loved the first series so much that I whizzed through it far too fast, it was over before I knew it and I felt so deflated when I ran out of episodes. This time around I’m older and wiser and I’m saving each one for when I need a little lift. Each story is so sweet and gorgeous and always cheers me up, you simply have to savour that stuff.
There was a moment on Twitter where people were sharing what advice the Queer Eye guys would give them. I missed the boat on that one so here’s mine…
If I was on Queer Eye
Bobby: Not everything can hold a candle
JVN: Your curls are THIRSTY GIRL
Tan: How many black tights?
Antoni: Cheese balls are not a food group
Karamo: Who hurt you baby?
Events – Jane’s Calamity
If you love karaoke, musicals or just bonkers nights out you should definitely check out Jane’s Calamity. A monthly event (1st Thursday of the month) held at Porters where you can fulfill your Broadway dreams and sing your little heart out to songs from the shows round a piano covered in fairy lights! If you happened to stumble across the evening without knowing, you’d be forgiven for thinking you’d accidentally fallen into a musical. For some (like me and my pals) it’s a dream come true! Song sheets are provided, but bring your own choreography. Big thanks to the gorgeous George & Dave for recommending this one – they know me so well! (Wasn’t it good – oh so good)
Food – Sunday Roast, Morpeth Arms
This was my Father’s Day treat in London with my wonderful sis. We found this cracking little traditional pub serving mega roasts and it was AMAZING. Just a little stroll from the Tate (we’re so absolutely cultured, obvs) we were really lucky to grab a table. Don’t know what they did to the cauliflower but I’d WALK back there (from Welsh Wales) just to have it again. Big up to the lovely friendly staff who looked after us.
Podcast – The Happiness Injection
Shonette is one of those people everyone wants in their life. She dazzles & sparkles and makes me laugh so much. I absolutely love her (and her Mam too) If you need a little more happiness in your life, this podcast is definitely for you. I like to save the episodes up for my grumpy days when I need some Shonette-Medicine. It’s magic…but prepare to get funny looks in traffic when you’re sat by yourself laughing your head off to her awesome stories.
Sometimes the relationship fizzle just fades doesn’t it? We’ve all been there. So what happens when you enlist the help of a therapist to help spice up your romantic life again? YOU MAKE A SEX JAR DAMMIT! This naughty little number is HILARIOUS, a perfect sunshine read for holidays that will surely have you blushing on your sunlounger.
The much anticipated follow-up to The List (you should definitely go back & read that one too if you haven’t already) you will love this if you’re not afraid of some saucy sprinkles of fun with your fiction.
Skincare – Jojoba Oil & Vitamin E Face Mask
This costs less than a pound (LESS THAN A POUND) and is a DREAM for thirsty skin like my desert-dry moonface. It’s perfectly pink and smells LUSH. Stockpile!
Thought – Do you worry he’s not sure about you?
Answer: YES. Everyone is fully aware that I’m obsessed with MH and this new video in particular really touched me this month. It’s like he’s talking just to me. I was gutted I couldn’t make it to his live show in London (I was making a movie darling! Honest, true story. Will tell you all about it when I’m allowed to) I’m really hoping I will catch him one day, maybe next time he’s in the country OR I could get someone to fund my spot on his five day retreat in paradise….any takers?
I’ve watched this video about 80 million times and I relate harder than concrete blocks.
Video – No No Nose
This is what happens when I’m home alone and find a Snapchat filter that removes your nose. Obviously I start singing. Watch here. I can entertain myself for hours, me.
As always I’d love to hear what you’ve been enjoying this month? Let me know.
