October Favourites!

Hello and Welcome to,

My list of favourites for this month is pretty mad. There are so many things I wanted to include in this list and all that’s currently on it are quite random. I’m just going to dive right into it, so I hope you enjoy!

Hairspray Live!

Now I was ecstatic when this live movie came out last year. I’ve always been obsessed with the actual movie and I’ve even been to see the production in theatre. So when this version came out I couldn’t wait to see what it was like, the production of it, and how they would pull off doing it live. Now, I have seen it so many times since it was released and each time I watch it I am just as in love with it. There are some things I didn’t like – like the interruption every couple of songs by a guy interviewing the cast. But, overall I was impressed with it. It’s definitely worth a watch if you haven’t seen it already.

So for my sisters birthday, she got a karaoke machine. I was so jealous until she said that she was leaving it at my home instead of taking it back to hers. I have probably used the machine more times then I’ve used the cooker, this last month. Now, I don’t think I’m all that when it comes to singing but I love it so much. And, this machine is probably the best thing ever. 

Demi Lovato

Demi, Demi, Demi… I absolutely adore her. I have pretty much grown up following Demi’s career. From the day’s she was on Barney & Friends, 15 years ago. To this day she is still my inspiration. In this last month, she has released an album – Tell Me You Love Me. This album is my favourite of hers. Her vocals on it are out of this world and the songs are so relatable.

A documentary – Simply Complicated. This documentary is the realist documentary I’ve ever seen. She is so real, honest, and open throughout. It was so mindblowing listening and watching her tell her story. Being someone that has grown up watching her in movies, tv-shows, listening to her music, and being completely unaware of what was really going on. I found the documentary extremely touching and inspirational. It is 10000% worth the watch – 

and she has just announced her Tour too with DJ Khaled, of which I can not wait for!! I am super proud of Demi Lovato!

Kevin Hart Interviews

On my many sleepless nights I have, Kevin Hart Interviews are the way to go. He has got to be one of the funniest people to interview with his crazy stories and just overall funny personality. Here are a few of my favourite interviews by him which will have you cry laughing –

Morrison Savers Sausage Rolls

I have this unhealthy obsession for Sausage Rolls. The worst thing is, is that I don’t even like the expensive ones. I love the cheap Morrison’s savers 8 pack sausage rolls. There is something so addictive about them. This month all I have craved and have eaten are these Sausage Rolls.


Now, this is an odd one. Before this last month, I was one of those people who hated subtitles. I would refuse to have them on and I would never watch a foreign film because I thought it was pointless having to read along with the movie. However, I was watching a show one night and it was late, my house was extremely quiet. I think my mum was trying to sleep and to her, my TV was too loud. So I turned it down but then I couldn’t hear it. I thought the only thing I could do was turn off my TV or put subtitles on. I didn’t know how worth it would be having them on, but I thought I might as well give it a shot. Ever since that day I have watched everything with subtitles on. They make every programme easier to follow, they are not as distracting as what I thought they actually are and know I can correctly quote movies and tv shows!

Nick Jonas – Find You

Nick Jonas much like Demi is someone I have followed for pretty much most of my life. I always look forward to new music from him, and although this song came out back in September, I haven’t stopped listening to it. It’s got this very mellow vibe to it, but also makes you want to dance. I love it! You can give it a listen here:


Yorkshire Tea, with no milk

I’ve drunk tea for as long as I can remember and I have never really liked milk with it, but I used to also think that it would taste awful without it. So gradually I went from putting a splash of milk to a dribble, and now to none. I think it’s great. I really love being able to actually taste the tea. I am so excited to try all different flavour teas now! If you have any suggestions of teas I should try, let me know! 

Dry Shampoo Guide

This guide has been a gift sent from God. I am so thankful to have come across it. Finding the right dry-shampoo for my hair is such a struggle, and I don’t fancy my chances of buying a number of bottles to find the right one. The guide is put together so well, with a lot of research and time gone into it. It has everything from the best dry shampoo and why, their 5 top picks, a detailed explanation on how they find the best dry-shampoo, and a list of dry shampoo’s that are great for a specific hair type. If you’re at all struggling to find the right dry shampoo for your hair this guide is what you need. You can view it at www.reviews.com/dry-shampoo

Harry Potter 

It’s that time of year where all I want to do is snuggle up on my sofa and binge watch Harry Potter. There is something about these movies that make this time of year so magical. I absolutely love the movies and I can’t wait to finish this post so I can put one of the movies on. It’ll probably be the Chamber of Secrets or Prisoner of Azkaban, as they’re my favourites!

Hot Water Bottle

Last up is my hot water bottle. There has been such a chill recently, which I am loving because it means I can wrap up, wear my dressing gown without people questioning it and I get to use my hot water bottle. Which has been a lifesaver during the cold nights. Now my bottle is quite old, the sleeve it’s covered by is starting to tear, so I don’t know how much longer it’s going to hold out for. But, I’ve had it for years and I can’t bring myself to buy a new one. Just yet.
