Happy Monday everyone! I’m off for loads of blood tests today and I have to fast for them so naturally I’m starting the day starving. It’s been a very social week with parties and gigs for several consecitive days, and I’m really craving some time in. I’m slightly appalled by the fact that tomorrow is MAY and we’re five months into 2018 and I feel like I haven’t done anything with my time. For not though, here are the best things I’ve been reading and watching in the last week of April.
I was a little late to the party with Queer Eye but oh damn this show is amazing. I’m a little in love with most of the Fab 5 and got far too emotionally invested in every episode. It’s a really lovely and heartwarming program that goes beyond most makeover shows, helping to improve self confidence and make a real difference to people’s lives. It’s frequently quite touching and I cried more than once.
Amyleigh’s post on asking where exactly our clothes come from is a brilliant one. She asks us to confront the reality of who made our clothes and what conditions they live and work in and participate in Fashion Revolution Week. I’m definitely guilty of turning a blind eye to the injustice inherent in the fashion world, so anything that reminds me to make ethical choices is brilliant as far as I’m concerned.
THIS POST CONTAINS KITTENS. If you haven’t seen Helen’s adorable kittens Tsuki and Matsu then you’re seriously missing out as they’re some of the most beautiful cats I’ve ever seen. She talks about their personalities and how they’ve changed in the last six months and, honestly, even if you don’t care about that it’s worth reading the post just for the pictures.
Antwerp has never really been on my radar, but Amy’s post has changed that. This little Belgian city looks absolutely beautiful; she features some stunning locations and tonnes of tiny interesting boutiques and restaurants. It looks right up my street and I’m considering it for my next city break.
That’s all for this week, hopefully you’ve found something new to watch or read that you’ll love. TTFN!
