Favourites of the Week #14

Wednesday 24 July 2013

It's that time again - here we go with another weekly favourites! I have, however, left ot a couple of categories this week as I've been a totally reading failure and have no new books to discuss with you... and *shock horror* the same goes for blogs!! Fear not, I'll make up for it with two bloggers of the week next week, I'd rather do that than pick someone for the sake of it this week!

Track of the Week
Burn - Ellie Goulding

We all know how much I love Ellie Goulding, and I am very much enjoying her latest offering this week. 'Burn' is a dancy track which I guarantee you'll find yourself tapping your foot along to (or, if you're anything like me, dancing around like a maniac).

Album of the Week
Taylor Swift - Red

This has featured in my weekly favourites so often, because I still love it. It's bizarre because in general I'm not the biggest Taylor Swift fan, but this album is seriously, seriously good. There's really only one track I ever skip past when I'm out and about(Sad, Beautiful, Tragic) and it isn't that I don't like it, I just have to be in a certain mood to listen to it - it's really slow paced, and since I walk ridiculously fast I feel like it's slowing me down (bizarre, I know!).

TV Show of the Week
Person of Interest

My brother and I actually started watching Person of Interest when it first aired last year, but we fell totally behind. Have been catching up with it this week though and I've now seen all of Season 1. Obviously the Lost connection is a biggy for me - created by JJ.Abrams and starring Michael Emerson (Ben Linus from Lost), but what I particularly like about this show is that it manages to keep your interest for the entire first season while revealing very little about the two main characters. That's pretty rare for a twenty odd episode first season. I have to say, I'm not convinced that Jim Cavaziel who plays John is the best actor in the world, but the amazing ability the character has to escpae virtually unscathed from any life threatening situation makes it really entertaining to watch. This guy's tougher than Jack Bauer.

Beauty Product of the Week
Bourjois Colour Boost in Peach on the Beach

I really think this is THE lip colour of the summer - everyone is wearing it!! I love this range from Bourjois, and this bright peachy pink shade is perfect for the sunny weather we've been having lately (okay not yesterday or today, but last week was good!).

YouTuber of the Week
Daily Grace

This needs no explanation. She always, always makes me laugh!!

Website of the Week

Obviously the whole Google Reader craziness has calmed down a bit now and I'm trying to getting used to using bloglovin! I actually quite like it - it's really easy to navigate and lets me keep up with all my favourite blogs :)

Style Icon of the Week
Julianne Hough

Firstly, let's take a moment for me to cry upon discovering that Julianne is less than a year older than me. Now that I've composed myself, let's enjoy her fashion choice from last week. I love the shade of this peachy mini-dress, and although it's a bit shorter than I would usually go (cue the 100 denier black tights), I do love a peplum. Now all I can think about it how badly I want to see Safe Haven (partly to fall in love with Josh Duhamel all over again, but also because I'm a sucker for a romantic movie)...

What have some of your favourite things been this week? Let me know in the comments! :)

Thanks for reading!


  1. I get really upset when I realise I'm the same age as some unbelievably gorgeous people and I haven't quite reached their level yet :L And blatantly depressed when I realise Chloe Grace Moritz (spell check?!) has that sexy edge I will never be laid back enough to have yet is in fact younger than me.

    1. I know!! She is a scary number of years younger than me, how is that possible!! She was practically a child in 500 Days of Summer!!!! xx

  2. I've nominated you for the Liebster Award, check out my blog to find out more!
