Ok, ok – yes I missed my August favourites.
I’m also a little late whipping out my September faves..
I’m not gonna lie to you, I’ve been slacking on the blogging front lately, and I’ve actually frosted my own cookies over it. I guess I’ve just felt a little uninspired and a little underwhelmed – I’ve just sat at the keyboard at random five minute intervals and discovered I have nothing to say! If you know, you know.
Anyway, me wittering on about my inability to magic a draft in to a real life post is not why you’re here, so without any further ado, I give you my September favourites!
Yoga with Adriene – YouTube (bedtime, pre-run, post-run, yoga for anxiety)
Ok now I will be 110% brutally honest with you here – I’ve long been a yoga sceptic. For years I couldn’t fathom this whole inner peace thing and how stretching in funny ways could be good for you – and yet my Aunt often says to me that one of the reasons she’s so chill is because of yoga. & so with my quest to discover the ultimate ‘chill’ and deliver a little self-care, I decided to be open to yoga and I let Adriene of ‘Yoga with Adriene’ on trusty YouTube take my yogi virginity.
She’s pretty popular & by the looks of it, one of the most viewed yoga youtubers out there – she’s incredibly calming, easy to follow and I shit you not, it bloody works. I began with a pre-run yoga (she literally has yoga workouts for EVERYTHING), then went for a run and came back to do post-run yoga. I felt amazing. She also has one I’ve just recently done for anxiety and another for before bedtime. I think it’s about being open to it?
Oh and be prepared, that myth about involuntary farting?
It’s not a myth.
Victoria – ITV – Sundays at 9pm
I cannot tell you how much I absolutely adore this programme – it could not be anymore perfect if you wrapped it in ribbons and stuck a puppy on top! I may even have included it in a previous favourites, but I care not! The young Queen is played magnificently (*posh word alert*) by Jenna Coleman, & it follows her early reign and includes meeting & marrying Prince Albert, whose love story btw, just kills me. Beautifully made, aesthetically pleasing AF to look at and I can’t. I just can’t.
Sunday evenings are my FAVES RN.
Foo Fighters – Concrete and Gold
Ok, nobody was more excited about the return of the mighty Foos more than I! If you know me well, you’ll know that Dave & the boys, are categorically my favourite band on the planet – they can do no wrong, and that’s true of their latest album, Concrete and Gold. It’s got a bit of a classic rock feel to it, and stand out tracks for me – aside from the obvs which is of course ‘The Sky is a Neighbourhood‘, are ‘La Dee Dah‘, ‘Happily Ever After (Zero Hour)’ and the title track ‘Concrete and Gold’.
Srsly though, if you’re a fan, go listen. If you’re not a fan, give yourself a good talking to and then, go listen.
Urban Decay Setting Spray
If you read my recent post I Won an Amazing Giveaway!, you might remember that I was lucky enough to win as part of that prize, not one but two (!) Urban Decay setting sprays! I’d heard so many good things about these, and I was chuffed as a button to be able to give them a whirl! They’re fab – a far cry from the L’Oreal one I’d been using prior, and I find my makeup lasting and looking fresher for longer. What more could you want?!
TK Maxx Candles
Now if these two babies don’t sing Autumn in a dreamy operatic voice, I don’t know what will! I did speak about these in my last post My Autumn Essentials so I won’t say much more than, these genuinely smell like what they say on the jar – even when they’re not lit, you can smell them from across the room! Did I mention they were just £2.99 each? Oh I didn’t? Ok. Well they were £2.99 each.
& that’s a wrap! Let me know if you’ve watched/listened/purchased or have loved any of my faves, or if I’ve tempted you into having a look in to any of them!
