My Top Music 2020

As always, I entered this year determined to listen to as many albums as I could find, yet even with national lockdowns and furlough galore, I didn’t quite live up to my expectations. That said, there are a handful of albums that I have either enjoyed for a great portion of 2020 or returned to throughout. If we are talking objectively here, they are not necessarily the BEST releases, but they are my own personal favourites. So, in fact in a way, they ARE the best. But you know what I’m getting at here – never wanting to rate albums as good or bad, these are simply a list of albums that I myself have enjoyed a lot this year.

February’s Holy Trinity of Feelings, Food and Music

First things first – she has a job, she has a job, she has a job! True, it was only three weeks of being unemployed, but it felt so much longer, dear lord. Funnily enough, it is another hospitality based job, despite me apparently wanting absolutely nothing to do with that line of work ever again. Things change though don’t they? Sure, perhaps that thing can be sheer desperation, but I prefer to look at it as determination. Why cut off one whole industry just because one job in particular wasn’t for me? So here I am giving it another go, and so far, so good. It certainly helps that I am not having to get the train to work or consider moving to a different town.

LUSH Summer Favourites

It is no secret that a lot of my cosmetic essentials all year round come from Lush (my absolute #1 being Ultrabland facial cleanser), but I thought I might talk you through some of my all time favourite products for summer.

(A Very Musical) Favourites || October ’16

Okay so this monthly post is going to be a little bit different to the others, in that it’s going to focus on all my music loves of the month. I don’t know, for the most part October has been all about the music and very little of anything else, so you best grab your headphones…

Favourites || September ’16

September may have been the month in which I spent more money than I should have done. Mind you, there are absolutely no regrets. I saw the month through, all while treating myself and having a great time. Worth it. Anyway here’s some of my favourite bits and pieces…

Favourites || June ’16

Let’s ignore the fact that I’m freaking out about June already being over, that 2016 is going so quickly, that so many changes, good and bad, have occurred, and I’ve still got so much more to look forward to. I’m currently working on my blog a fair bit, experimenting with layouts and what not, so bear with me while I try to figure out ‘the look’. Anyway here’s my favourite bits from June!

Favourites || May ’16

First of all, apologies for how late this post is…at least it’s just about within the first week of June, right? I had initially started this post with a much longer list, but by the time I got through them I realised that it was mostly just a list of all the things I bought/enjoyed throughout the month so I narrowed it down to the following items that really stood out. Just imagine that I was listening to Iggy Pop’s Post Pop Depression album with each item, because that was most likely the case. I tell you what I’ll feature one of my favourite songs from the album at the end, enough said.

Favourites || April ’16

If you’ve read my previous post, you’ll know that the last month has been a busy one for me, moving into a new flat and having a lot going around me – it’s been pretty hectic. So this “Favourites” post is a little later than I’d normally prefer, still, better than nothing! I haven’t really had the chance to buy many nice things this month as any money that I’ve had has gone into paying rent for two places, fees for the new place and just generally staying alive. However, I have been lucky enough to try a few lovely things either by chance, or by earlier purchases that I’ve only now allowed myself to use, or as a gift from a friend…
