Hello my lovelies, yes I haven’t written in a month and yes I am late again to monthly favourites. University work was getting too much, I had a breakdown, cried it over and picked myself up and got on with shit that I had to do in order for life to carry on smoothly. People life is shit sometimes, but always pick yourself back up. Anyway, I am mixing it up a bit this month, including my favourite film, soundtrack, restaurant, book, one makeup product (I know it was so hard) and my favourite Youtubers and bloggers. So, let’s go…Favourite Film/Soundtrack:
When I say my life is now complete, it honestly is. I was so excited to go see The Greatest Showman in the cinema, I went with my mum and literally within the first 5 seconds we were gripped. Musicals are my favourite type of film and this was insane. This movie gives you all the feels you could possibly imagine and its so relatable. Everyone in their life has been bullied or laughed at for not looking/sounding/being a certain way, so tears came along but so did laughter and a lot of happy smiles. Everything from the singing, to the choreography, to the costumes were amazing. I have to say this is my favourite movie of all time. Of course, I downloaded the soundtrack as well and have been listening to it on repeat ever since. If you haven’t seen this yet, what are you waiting for?!
Favourite Makeup Product:
So, some of you may know from my Instagram @_sophiepjx that I went to Berlin in February. Of course I had to go shopping didn’t I, I picked up some amazing goodies but this is definitely my favourite product of the month. The Nyx Love you so Mochi Eyeshadow Palette. I was really hesitant at first to purchase this as they are bright colours, but I had the Nyx Brights Palette at home and in my head I was pairing the two very well together haha. I have to say this is amazing pigmentation and oh my god do your eyes look insane with these colours. I have been loving the pinks and the yellow, there is some fallout but girls and boys I am telling you that its worth it for the pigmentation. They are so creamy as well which I wasn’t expecting so they blend amazingly well.
Please don’t judge me and I hope someone in the world enjoys these as much as I do. Ever since I was little I have loved the Roald Dahl books and I am a massive lover of books so everything from when I was little I still have. I love reading my old books even if they are children’s books but hey whats a girl to do. The illustrations from Quentin Blake I fall in love with every time. I am currently on Matilda and I have no shame!
I am obsessed with Chiquitos, who doesn’t love Mexican food. I always get halloumi skewers to start, I am a massive fan of cheese. You will not meet anyone like me, I literally live off of it. Once I sat there with a fork and eat the cheese out of the packet. Yep, that’s my life. ahah. I then always get chicken enchiladas and 2 for 1 on cocktails, I mean come on. You can also wear the Mexican hats, definitely a selfie opportunity. I was so happy when my boyfriend took me to Chiquitos for Valentines Day, which you can clearly see in these photographs, I was loving life and my cocktail haha.
I love reading blogs, whether I’m in the bath or in bed, I find them so relaxing. It is just like reading a book, for five minutes of your day you unwind in to someone elses thoughts and imagination. I have recently been loving Beth Sandland. I follow her on Instagram too and I just love her personality. It comes across so funny and relatable in her blog posts and captions on Instagram. I literally can’t deal haha. Her photographs are also stunning, which completes how amazing her blog is. Go give her a follow!
When I tell you this girl gives me life, I tell you this girl gives me life. If I ever am having a low day this girl picks me up. She is so down to earth, so relatable, I can’t even tell you how funny she is and I honestly inspire to have her confidence. I wish we were best friends haha. Her Youtube channel is honestly amazing and she has come so far in such a short amount of time, she gives me so much inspiration to do well in not only blogging but in life. If you haven’t already guessed I am talking about the gorgeous, Imogenation Go give her a follow! She deserves all the love in the world, she is a truly amazing spirit.
