Favourites of the Week #2

Track of the Week
Just Give Me a Reason by Pink ft. Nate Ruess

Only just discovered this song and I love it. First of all, Pink is vocally amazing here, and Nate Ruess (otherwise known as the lead singer from Fun if like me the name didn't ring a bell!) is fantastic. It's a great song, but I have to draw attention to the video... it is absolutely insane! I'd try to explain, but it would be futile - I couldn't possibly capture the nuttiness that is this video. You'd be better to watch for yourself!

Album of the Week
Tyler Ward's ''Hello. Love. Heartbreak''

I've been listening to this lovely album a lot again this week. Love it. Dashes may be my favourite track.

TV Show of the Week
Arrested Development

Still working my way through Dexter, but I've been rewatching a lot of Arrested Development this week. This show never gets old :)

Film of the Week
Les Miserables

Went to see it for the second time yesterday... have I mentioned that I kind of like it? So pleased Anne Hathaway got the BAFTA and gutted Hugh Jackman didn't!

Beauty Product of the Week
L'Oreal Rouge Caresse lipstick in Dating Coral

Love love loving this again, it is probably my favourite lipstick of all time.

Book of the Week
The Hundred Year Old Man Who Climed Out of the Window and Disappeared by Jonas Jonasson

I have to admit I've slacked off a wee bit in terms of reading this week, still on the same one as last week!

YouTuber of the Week
Kandee Johnson

Has to be Kandee Johnson, I always have and always will adore that woman, she is a little ray of sunshine.

Website of the Week

I've been loving all of the articles on Hello Giggles this week - I really, really love this website. My favourite articles this week were this one here on the gorgeous Aaron Tveit in Les Miserables, and this one here on Beyonce and the Superbowl :)

Style Icon of the Week
Anne Hathaway

This is a new category I've added in! After flicking through the best dressed photos from the BAFTAs and the Grammys I thought it was a good one to add :) I thought Anne Hathaway looked so gorgeous last night in her Burberry gown. So elegant and classy, and in keeping with the monochrome trend that overwhelmed the red carpet last night!

So that's it for my favourites of the week! I'd love to hear what some of yours are! :)

  1. Great post. I watched les mis on sat and I absolutely luv it and obsessing over the music, the whole les mis story n just everything about it! I'm so glad I got it on DVD, I can sense myself watching it again too hehe! Jenni x
    P.s. Anne so deserved that award.

    1. It's such an amazing story! She really did, her performance had me crying my eyes out! xx

  2. I love the blog layout and design darling!

    1. Thank you so much! I know, she looks absolutely stunning :) just checked out your blog, it's amazing! :) xx

  3. I saw Les Mis for the first time today and god I loved it, more than when I saw the musical (which was when I was about 8 though so that could be why?) But Anne Hathaway blew me away, she was barely in it as Fantine but she was so phenomenal. She's just beautiful! I also have such a crush on Aaron Tveit!

    I have that book to read too, I'm slacking book wise atm, I just can't relax enough to get into anything!

    1. Aww I'm so glad you enjoyed it!! I was the same, I thought Anne Hathaway was absolutely amazing! I had never seen it on the stage so I really had no idea what I was getting myself in for, other than a rough idea of the themes. There must be something in the air, I've been the same the past couple of weeks, but I've started another book which I've actually got into a lot quicker (''The Book of Tomorrow'' by Cecelia Ahern). So I may abandon 'the hundred year old man' for the moment, even though I think once I properly get into it it will be really good, and stick with this other one :) xx
