I like these things at the moment.

  • The Way, Way Back
I was sold on this from the trailer, having an odd feeling I would like it. But I liked it even more than I thought I would and so it's jumped to the top of my favourite films of the year (Yes I've gone there.) Sam Rockwell is A++++++++++ and Steve Carell playing a horrible, awful step-father is a genius move. It's got such a wonderful script and the cast are delightful. Even though the story has pretty much been done a million times before, the film feels so fresh. If you're worried the funniest and most touching moments are in the trailer- trust me there is much more to be seen in full.

I laughed, I cried and I can't wait to see it again. (gifs)

  • This quote:
Your body is made of the same elements that lionesses are built from. Three quarters of you is the same kind of water that beats rocks to rubble, wears stones away. Your DNA translates into the same twenty amino acids that wolf genes code for. When you look in the mirror and feel weak, remember, the air you breathe in fuels forest fires capable of destroying everything they touch. On the days you feel ugly, remember: diamonds are only carbon. You are so much more. (x)

  • Real Techniques
I don't know how I've lived without a Real Techniques makeup brush. I'm no expert on make-up, but these things seem to be the best I've ever used (professional term). I only have the face brush which I use for my concealer or BB cream (because I like my freckles and foundtation hides them), so I'm most probably using it wrong but it still leaves me skin feeling really dewy and the product is properly worked into the skin.


  • Mindy Kaling (still)
The Mindy Project is still running in the UK (the highlight of my Tuesdays), but at the moment I'm just really loving her tweets and Instagram. She's inspiring and I really, really want to be her.

  • Yours Truly - Ariana Grande
Ariana Grande has the voice of an angel, making me so glad I bought her album. Her music has a very late 90s/early 00s vibe, which for me is quite nostalgic to the music I first started listening to, as well as being a good blend of pop and RnB. I can't stop listening to it.

Johansson was so determined to avoid looking like a movie star pretending to be a zookeeper running on empty and fueled only by her devotion to her motley assortment of big cats, zebras, and kangaroos that she refused to wear makeup for the film. A big deal for a female movie star, but it works, helping to anchor her performance in the details of actual manual labor—shoveling shit, feeding slabs of red meat to the lion and tigers—that we don’t see much of in American movies.

I still have yet to see We Bought A Zoo, but I like to be reminded just how wonderful a person Scarlett Johansson is. (gifs and link)

  • Denim Chicken
I'm known for randomly bursting out with laughter when I think about a funny moment in a show. The one I can't stop laughing at when I randomly think of it is Denim Chicken. If you don't watch It's Always Sunny in Philadelphia then I don't think seeing the clip will help you to understand how much I love it.

That pretty much sums up my life recently. Other than the fact I'm getting excited  and nervous about heading off to uni soon!
