September Favourites

By Martina - Wednesday, September 27, 2017

I've decided that I want to start a monthly post thingy on my current favourites, as I really like to read other people's favourites and I also think it's one of those posts that it's fun to look back at after a few months (or years).

Let's start with the most important topic: food. My food favourite this month are the Nakd bars, especially the one called Berry Delight. They are tasty, healthy, not sickly sweet and the price is not too bad either if you buy the box that contains four of them (especially since they've been reduced to £2 all month at Sainsbury's).

Favourite flavour: cinnamon. I love cinnamon all year round, but this month I've found myself eating more of it, at home and on the go. I guess it's weather apppropriate right now, since it's starting to look a lot like autumn.

My favourite item of clothing has been hands down my fleecy tights from Primark. They are extremely comfortable and look very nice. They are also super cheap, which reminds me I actually need to stock up before the great cold begins.

I have used my beloved Naked 3 palette pretty much every day off I had and I love love love the colours. I always manage to do something that looks cool on my eyes, and I am usually terrible at eyeshadow (I believe I used to be better, but I am so out of practice now).

I haven't watched too many films or series lately, but I have loved the latest season of BoJack Horseman, and that's saying something, considering that I am not the biggest fan of cartoons for adults. BoJack is actually the first one I properly like and look forward to watching again. I love the characters, the plot, the topics they talk about and the way they convey them. I think I loved this season even more than the previous. The episode about BoJack's mum's past is equally as good and touching as the episode set on the bottom of the ocean at the end of the previous season, and I loved some little details like the way they voiced BoJack's mind in one episode by doodling a little horse and making him mimic everything that BoJack was thinking about himself. And I believe there are a lot of deep/quotable sentences. I still love this one from the previous season: 

Nobody completes anybody. That’s not a real thing. If you’re lucky enough to find someone you can halfway tolerate, you sink your nails in and don’t let go no matter what.

Book-wise I have been focusing on Chernow's Hamilton biography, which I am absolutely loving, but I'm not going to review here because I have other plans for it (and I haven't finished it yet).

One more thing before I go. The first week of August I bought the most beautiful Disney x Cath Kidston backpack and I have been using it pretty much everyday. I wanted to write a super long post about it but haven't managed to take the right pictures yet, so expect that at some point next month (hopefully). I just believe it was worth mentioning it here because I've been loving that backpack since June, when I first set my eyes on it, and I still do.
