July 2019 Favourites

August 7, 2019 in Lifestyle

You know what time it is: monthly favourites time! July has been… pretty interesting. We threw a teddy bear picnic in our living room, casually met Elsa from Frozen down the shops and booked a trip to Chessington! So I guess all that’s left to share is what bits and bobs I loved this month!

Big Magic by Elizabeth Gilbert

Designated Survivor (S3)

Season 1 was a big hit with us but season 2 felt like more filler than anything else which was disappointing. So when I saw the trailer for the new episodes, I was a little sceptical but I needn’t have been. Season 3 was great!

The threat to national security was really thrilling which made this an easy binge-watch. My only gripe was that the best character was killed off but that’s just how TV works, right?

Secret Obsession

Okay so this might not be the best movie ever made but I still really enjoyed it.

It’s a perfect watch for thriller fans.

How to Get Away with Murder (S5)

This season there’s a new murder (obviously) and we’re left watching each episode trying to piece together who’s the victim, who’s the perpetrator and why. I have my theories but I’m rarely right with this show so…
