The Friday Post - 9

The Friday Post 9

I was thinking I was going to wake up this morning and it would be all snowy but of course it never does where I live and it ended up just being a rainy day. I always get a little jealous when people get snow because I genuinely love it. Here is this week's Friday Post.

February Favourites

February Favourites

Box Set // Sex And The City
This month I really felt like re-watching the Sex and the City seasons. I literally just finished watching season 6 last week and simply adore it. I always try to work out who I think is the funniest or most like myself and to be honest I don't think I am like one person, but I have similarities to all four of the women. I think Samantha is the funniest, some of the lines she has in the show have me howling with laughter, I also adore Miranda's sarcasm because I am a keen lover of sarcasm. Apart from all the sex I just really like being able to see parts of New York and all the famous places there.

Quote // "Brows are supposed to be 'sisters, not twins'- but I'm pretty sure mine aren't even friends"
I think I saw this on the Cosmopolitan Instagram page and found it so funny because inevitably for myself it is true. I didn't even care about my eyebrows until everyone else cared about theirs and now I spend the majority of my time in the morning trying to get them looking right.

B. Prepared Makeup Primer

B. Prepared Makeup Primer

Make up primers are the more recent addition to my collection and are still something I am testing out to see if they actually make any difference to my skin. Primers are used mainly as a base before applying your foundation or concealer, they usually smooth out your skin allowing the make up on top to appear flawless. They also claim to help your make up stay on for longer. I recently purchased the primer from B. and these are my thoughts on it.

Classic Hummus Recipe

Classic Hummus Recipe

Hummus is one of my favourite foods, it is my favourite sandwich filling and my favourite savoury dip. Basically I love hummus and am regularly eating it, even more so since I became vegan. It is such a simple thing to make at home and easily adaptable to your individual taste. So here is my classic hummus recipe.

February Playlist

February Playlist

Here // Alessia Cara
Basically the perfect song for introverts and anti-party people, probably why I like it so much. I have never heard any of her other music but I think this is the song that got her noticed. It samples the same beat as Portishead Glory Box which is one of my favourite songs and basically is all about her hating parties. I actually really like listening to the lyrics, it is all about being some place because your friends are, but you really hate being there and would prefer to be sat in the corner being anti social. I think it speaks to a lot of people but I genuinely think it is a great song. 

Secret Love Song // Little Mix
Just reading the title of this song in person it wouldn't be something I was keen to listen too. But I was in the car one day listening to the radio and this came on, I knew I recognised the voices but couldn't work out straight away who it was. I think it is great that we have a British UK girl band but usually there music is not something I immediately listen to. However I find this song really catchy and find myself singing it out loud an awful lot.
