5 Songs I've Been Loving #1

Hey everyone,

I thought I'd do something a bit different and share with you a few of my favourite songs at the moment. I've really been loving discovering new artists and branching out with the genres of music that I usually listen to. So in this blog post I will be sharing with you 5 of my favourite songs from the month of July. 


I hope you enjoy!


No. 1 

Blue Lights - Jorja Smith



I've never come across this artist until recently when I heard it playing in a shop. Its a great take on the song "Sirens" by Dizzee Rascal...giving a much slower version, with less rap and much more harmonising.

No. 2

Longing For You - D/C



I came across this artist after discovering their song "I Love Gold" and ever since have been loving their unique sounds.

No. 3
Doses - Bonzai


I stumbled across this song from a missguided advert which recently played on the tv....

Ever since, I've been playing it non-stop...it's definitely very different to anything I usually listen to but I love it.

No. 4
Dancing On My Own - Calum Scott



You may have already heard this song before as it's currently number 10 in the UK Top Charts...I found it whilst listening to the music channel on tv and absolutely love his voice in it.

No. 5
Sometimes - Kiko Bun



This final song is much more summery and upbeat to the others, with a reggae beat and happy feel. It really puts me in a good mood when I listen to it :D

5 Things I've been loving this week

Hey everyone, 

I'm back again and today with a new post...sharing with you things I've really been loving and getting into the past week. I really enjoy reading these types of blog posts that are short lists of things people have been loving or monthly favourites...so this idea is very similar and will hopefully be interesting to read :D



1. Clap Your Hands - Whilk & Misky




One of the things I've been loving lately is discovering new music and new artists, and I came across this song and fell in love. I listen to a lot of my music on Spotify and when I came across this I couldn't stop playing it. It's such a catchy tune.

2. New Look Scarf



I recently did a big online order from New Look, one of the things I ordered was this black and white scarf from the sale section for just £4.50 and I have to say I am very impressed with it. It's very warm and cosy and matched just about every outfit. Definitely recommend! 




3. Pretty Little Liars





Another one of my obsessions this week has been Pretty Little Liars on Netflix! So I've been waiting for the new season to come out for a while now and it finally launched in the UK on Wednesday and I was so happy. Every episode gets you hooked to find out more, I can't wait the following Wednesday's new episode.


4. L'Occitane Hand Cream


So if you've read any of my winter blog posts before, you would see that in the winter I like to moisturise a lot more because of the harsh cold weather. So one of the essential I've been carrying around is this L'Occitane Cherry Blossom hand cream. It's the perfect size for your handbag as it doesn't take up any room and leaves your hands feeling soft. I also tend to go for this moisturise cause it soaks into my skin, rather than a lot of moisturisers out there that don't and leave your hands with a filmy coating of oil on them.

5. Dorkface Blog



So this week I've been loving Dorkface blog; dorkface.com Jemma's posts are so addictive and fun to read. If your want someone new to read who posts often...check out Dorkface. Been one of my favourite bloggers for a while now and I'm glad I've finally included her in one of my blog posts!

Thank you so much for reading! I hope you enjoyed this post! Look out for more posts soon!
