Favourites of the Week #15

Sunday 11 August 2013

Another week, another weekly favourites. Sorry this feature has become sort of intermittent, I'm going to try and get it back on track and do one every Sunday! So, without further ado, here are some of the things I've been loving this week :)

Track of the Week
Fifth Harmony - Miss Movin' On

Never thought I'd hear myself say this, but I've actually really been enjoying Fifth Harmony's debut single. The girl band was formed in the first series of the XFactor USA which I gave up on watching after a handful of episodes, but this first single is quite catchy. It's nothing new - very typical girl band, sort of girl power pop song, but I have found myself dancing around to it this week.

Album of the Week
Imagine Dragons - Night Visions

I'm so addicted to the Imagine Dragons album, it's so good! I've loved Radioactive since it came out, and have wanted to get my hands on the album for weeks. My lovely bestie Emma bought me it as a wee cheer up present this week, which was very nice of her, and it's as good as I hoped it would be!

TV Show of the Week
New Girl

Finished New Girl Season 1 this week and I loved it so much! I won't go on and on about it as I've talked about it plenty times before, but the chemistry between all of the actors is insane, and I just can't get enough of the characters. A stand out episode from season 1 had to be The Landlord - Nick and Jess are always hilarious together but this one had tears literally rolling down my face from laughing so hard.

Film of the Week
Safe Haven

Speaking of tears running down my face, I finished watching Safe Haven for the first time last night and oh my, it had me bawling my eyes out. I know Nicholas Sparks and Nicholas Sparks-esque films aren't for everyone but I love The Notebook, and thoroughly enjoyed Safe Haven too. I'm a big fan of Josh Duhamel, and because I hadn't read the book I had no idea what I was letting myself in for with the story of this film - it's a tear jerker!

Beauty Product of the Week
Bourjois Bronzing Primer

Loving this for actually giving me some colour in my face, I'm so pale and have looked even pastier while I haven't been feeling too well, so this has been a life saver.

Book of the Week
How to Leave Twitter by Grace Dent

This book is hilarious! I'm only about a quarter of the way through it at the moment, but it's so entertaining. The opening pages about how people usually end up setting up a twitter account and how hopeless you inevitably are to begin with are brilliant because it is exactly what I was like when I started out on twitter!

YouTuber of the Week
Louise - Sprinkle of Glitter

She often features as my favourite youtuber, but I really do love her. Have been enjoying her vlogs from Vidcon (why was I not there?!!) and the fact that she made a collab video with Grace Helbig, my other favourite YouTuber, this week meant she couldn't not be my YouTuber of the Week.

Blog of the Week
Iona from Iona Blog

My pal Iona has given her blog a wee revamp this week with the help of the very talented Gillian, who is responsible for my blog design too!! The little bumble bee in her blog header is certainly apt, because she is a busy bee at the moment with two jobs on the go, but she still finds time to update her little corner of the internet with all sorts of posts - in her most recent update, she goes through her perfect 48 Hour Fringe, as the Edinburgh Fringe Festival is in full swing! Be sure to go and check her out.

Website of the Week
Forty Days of Dating

Oh my, I have been addicted to this website this week! If you haven't heard of it, it's basically an online diary of two friends, Jessica and Tim, who decided earlier this year to date each other for forty days since neither of them has managed to keep a relationship going (for very different reasons) so far in their lives. Jessie loves 'love', and is constantly searching for something meaningful, getting too attached too fast, while Tim is more of a casual dater, dating several girls at once and breaking it off before it goes too far. So far they've posted up to day thirty one and I can't stop reading!

Style Icon of the Week
Lily Collins


I picked up the September issue of Glamour yesterday, mainly because I've been finding myself quite drawn to Lily Collins lately, and I wanted to read her interview. However, I think she looks amazing on the cover. Love the red dress and Audrey Hepburn-esque hair and eyebrows. She's got a sort of pixie look, if that makes sense, and I think this style really, really suits her.

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

Thanks for reading!


  1. My sisters recently got me into Imagine Dragons and I have been listening to their album lots recently too :) Oh and New Girl is the best!! I find Jess so inspiring :)


    1. Me too! I love Jess, I love that she is never anything but herself :) xx

  2. I love that you do this on your blog, I think it is a great idea!


    1. Aww thank you! I like being able to look back and go ''I totally forgot how much I loved that song/book/whatever'' :) xx

  3. Just found your blog, and I totally love it! Following on DFC and Bloglovin now. I also love all of your favorites from this past week, there is nothing I disagree with :)

    Ring-a-Round a Rosey

  4. I really like Fifth Harmony, they're so cute haha! I think they're kind of trying to make them into the female One Direction though! Grace Dent's book sounds really good, I used to read her "Diary of a Chav" books which were hilarious!
