Hello August

6 Aug

Hi lovelies!

So. My summer job is complete.

*large sigh of relief*

For the past six weeks or so, I’ve been working at a summer language camp in Hertfordshire as an Activity Leader. I’ve never been so thankful for a job to be over and done with, let me tell you.

It’s been a rough few months for my family, but I’m determined to come out the other end of this bizarre first half of the year with a smile on my face and a determination to finish university and find a job that I love. Plus it’s my birthday month! Which means lots of friends and family round for our annual barbecue at the end of the month! 🙂

A few things that I’ve been loving lately…

The Line Up
These girls are phe-nom-e-nal. I’m blown away by the amount of talent they have, and the amount of effort they put into each one of their YouTube videos is astounding. I’m not a fan of style blogs, or even style videos really, but it’s a testament to them how eager I am to watch every new video when it’s released.

UnReal
If you’re a TV fan like I am, you’ll have heard about the summer show that has stolen the spotlight from True Detective and OINTB. UnReal is a scripted drama about the behind-the-scenes action of a reality dating show named ‘Everlasting’ – think ‘The Bachelor’ meets ‘The Newsroom’. Plus, the walk and talks are pretty spectacular and the eye candy ain’t bad either.

Pop Culture Happy Hour and Talking TV
Last year, when I came out of my binge-stupor after finishing the last episode of ‘Serial’ (true crime podcast about the murder of a young girl in 1999)  I was searching for something a little lighter. These two podcasts are the best of the bunch, IMO. Pop Culture Happy Hour is a round-table style podcast that revolves around what the participants are watching, reading and listening to. I immediately fell head over heels for the regulars on this – in particular Linda Holmes, Stephen Thompson and Glen Weldon, who have been at the table since the first taping over five years ago. Head back through their feed and you’ll definitely find an episode that is in your wheelhouse. And speaking of wheelhouses, mine is pretty much Talking TV with Ryan and Ryan. These guys know what they are talking about. Full stop. It’s structured simply as a conversation between Ryan McGee and Maureen ‘Mo’ Ryan (HuffPo), two critics who really know their stuff. Download a few episodes (and bear with the ‘down a well’ quality of Mo’s voice sometimes) and get ready to be televisionlightened.

So that’s it from me this time guys. Hopefully see you soon with a beauty post. (I’ve been shamelessly buying something every time I feel down in the dumps or need a pick-me-up.)

Hope you have an amazing day or night, wherever you are!
