I’m Not Crying…

I love to cry. I find it the most cathartic exercise. I don’t think a day goes that I don’t have a little blub – for any number of reasons. Nostalgia, joy, a stubbed toe – all that and more can threaten my mascara on the daily and I’ve become notorious for wearing my emotion on my sleeve. Over the last few months it … Read More I’m Not Crying…

Two Brilliant TV Shows

I’ve been so good at regularly posting here so I thought I’d keep up momentum and talk about a couple of things I’ve been watching lately. One sexy thriller with two feisty leads, one horribly unsettling interpretation of what could happen to the country if we’re not careful – and both currently available on the BBC iPlayer. *Minor spoilers* Killing Eve (2018-2019) After a … Read More Two Brilliant TV Shows

Truly Oddly Deeply

*Drag Race spoilers* While Drag Race doesn’t always pack the punch it used to (IMHO), I am always fully on board. I mean, it’s still extremely addictive television and more fun than most things, even at its least inspiring (and sometimes problematic). Season 11 hasn’t been too bad so far and has a couple of standouts for me, including larger-than-life Silky and Vanessa Vanjie … Read More Truly Oddly Deeply

The Category is… Live. Werk. Pose.

Pose is set in the world of 1987 and “looks at the juxtaposition of several segments of life and society in New York: the rise of the luxury universe, the downtown social and literary scene and the ball culture world.” *Minor spoilers* I’m fashionably late to the Pose party but I’m so glad I made it. Based around the 1980’s NYC ballroom scene, it … Read More The Category is… Live. Werk. Pose.

Fleabag

*Minor spoilers* Woooooo, Fleabag is back for a second series and I’m absolutely delighted! Written and starring the amazing Phoebe Waller-Bridge – the complex titular character Fleabag returns with new issues including a mammoth crush on a priest (Andrew Scott). Which is super hot, I won’t lie. Fleabag is brilliant because it’s touching, relate-able (remember when I had my own crush on a priest? … Read More Fleabag

Maniac

Maniac (2018) Jonah Hill, Emma Stone, a depressed computer, a series of mind-bending simulations and a seemingly predestined shared destiny – what’s not to love? Honestly, not much. While everyone seemed to be tooting on about this when it first dropped on Netflix, I had a hard time getting past the first few episodes. But I wanted to give it a fair go, given … Read More Maniac

Hannah Gadsby: Nanette

I really want to talk about Nanette without actually talking about Nanette, which is going to be a bit hard. But going into this stand-up special with little to no knowledge about what it’s about means you’ll be hit with the power of it. It’s not an exaggeration to say that this blew me away and has remained in my thoughts ever since I … Read More Hannah Gadsby: Nanette

Weekly Digest

This week I am digging: Search Party, Season Two One of my favourite shows is back and I found out BY ACCIDENT! So I spend a whole weekend rinsing the second season and it was dark and funny – and a perfect reminder of how much I love the characters in the first place. I’m going to give this show a post of its … Read More Weekly Digest

Just a Little Crush… Game of Thrones Edition

The world can be a cold and frightening place at times with events making you question everything you hold dear, including your own sanity. When life gets you like this it’s always worth taking a moment if you can and thinking about the things that bring you joy. Partners, friends and family, food and great big crushes on grubby fictional characters should do it, I’d … Read More Just a Little Crush… Game of Thrones Edition

#weekendcoffeeshare*

*Idea shamelessly stolen from Holley who blogs at Chasing Destino (who credits the idea as Part-Time Monster‘s). If you and I were sitting on my new sofa**, sharing coffee I would talk to you about: Making a Murderer (2015) – Two weeks ago I was convinced I knew everything. More so I was sure of Steven Avery’s innocence because obviously he didn’t commit such a heinous … Read More #weekendcoffeeshare*

Things & Inc #4

It’s been a while, so I thought I’d share a few of things I’ve been into lately. Why the hell not, eh? Television: Sense 8 I’m not great at explaining what the chuff is going on in most Sci-Fi stories, most of the time barely clinging on to the plot myself, so I’ll let IMDB explain it for me: A group of people around the … Read More Things & Inc #4
