May Favourites

Good evening everybody! Sorry you didn't get a monday post-- I had it all planned and ready but had a few technical problems in the new house. I decided to shake things up a bit and do an old #bloggerfave for today's post-- May Favourites!

1 - Hamilton - You'll already know from last week's Top Tip that I've been loving this musical, but I have. My spotify has had 'Take a Break' on repeat all week.

2 - Charlotte Tilbury Eyes to Mesmerise Eye Shadow in Marie Antoinette - I bought this eye shadow a while ago, maybe Christmas or my birthday last year? I've always been a bit tentative using this as it cost $$$, which meant my attempts were a bit feeble and uninteresting. Lately I've been slathering it on with a bit of Rimmel 'Billionaire' on top to set it and it's been giving me the smokey eye of my dreams.

3 - Mr Kate - I've been googling DIY home renovations like mad in the past weeks, and I've been getting a lot of good tips and tricks from Mr Kate. If I hadn't found her channel the house would have probably wound up as another all-white penny in the house fountain-- sorry Design*Sponge. Thankfully, I found Kate in the nick of time, and she's totally inspired me to be more, well, inspired, with my colour choices. If I tell you Sam and I painted the bedroom Pigeon Green yesterday and leave it at that...

4 - My new scrabble mug from @Alexebohan - Alex has been my friend for the longest time, but we hardly get to see each other. We recently had our quasi-annual reunion to catch up for my birthday, and she got me some beautiful art supplies and a pretty new mug-- plus a handmade card after my own heart. Thank you, Bo :)

5 - Nike Air Max Thea - I've been after these damn trainers for so long, but been waiting for the peak time to strike. I saw them on ASOS on sale once for £45 but got greedy and thought I could find them cheaper. I couldn't. I developed an obsession. Sam bought me them for my birthday so I would stop looking at them wistfully through shop windows (thank you Sam).

6 - Never Sleep Again - The Elm Street Legacy Documentary - When I was at university locked away doing assignments, I would put all the Lord of the Rings behind-the-scenes featurettes on in the background for company. Something about hearing how big movies get made really interests me, more than the actual movie half the time. If you have four hours spare and love insightful documentaries then this one about the making of the Nightmare on Elm Street series is a great way to spend a Saturday afternoon. I've not actually seen any of the Elm Street movies-- I know, how?? But I still found this totally fascinating. Next on my watch list: Nightmare on Elm Street, Elm Street 2 and Dream Warriors. Also Freddy vs Jason. I won't be sleeping well.

7 - Passing my driving test! At Last! - Goes without saying. It took five tests and a hypnotist-- now I just need to find a car.

8 - Peonies being back in season - I know I'm being basic. I know. I know. But I still love them. I'm sorry. Avoid my Instagram if you're a hater.

Until next time, there will be home updates soon!
