Favourites of the Week #16

Monday 19 August 2013

I'm back with another weekly favourites - there are some really good ones this week, so be sure to check them out!!

Track of the Week
Katy Perry - Roar

I'm addicted to Katy Perry's new single 'Roar'. I've been listening to it all week to give myself a wee boost - it sounds silly but trying to focus on empowering, positive song lyrics sometimes has a real effect on me. It's like reading uplifting quotes - something small and seemingly insignificant but it can totally alter your mood.

Album of the Week
Imagine Dragons - Night Visions

Still devouring the Imagine Dragons album on a daily basis this week, I love love love it. My favourite track at the moment is Demons, but it changes constantly! There is such a mix of sounds on this album, with tracks resembling a whole array of bands I love, from The Killers to Safetysuit and The Naked and Famous.

TV Show of the Week
Person of Interest

I'm about half way through season two of Person of Interest now and I'm still really enjoying it. Michael Emerson is such a good actor, he was incredible in Lost and he's great in this too. I still wonder when we're going to really learn more about our two heroes, there are an awful lot of unanswered questions at this stage, but I'm eager to know more.

Film of the Week
Alan Partridge: Alpha Papa

My friend Emmeline and I went to see the Alan Partirdge film this weekend and it was absolutely brilliant! In all honesty, I haven't watched an awful lot of Alan Patridge in the past. I've seen lots of wee bits and pieces but it isn't something that I've sat down and made an effort to properly watch, but the film was hilarious, there were moments I literally couldn't stop laughing.

Beauty Product of the Week
Rimmel Fix and Perfect Pro Primer

I love this primer, it's so affordable and it makes my makeup last all day - what more could you want?!

Book of the Week
The Secret Island by Enid Blyton

As part of my 101 Things in 1001 Days post, I included ''reread The Secret Island'', and I've started doing just that. As my favourite childhood book of all time this isn't too difficult, and I'm loving revisiting it :)

YouTuber of the Week
Anna from Vivianna Does Makeup

I've always liked Anna's channel, but I've really enjoyed watching some of her videos this week. I watched her second Makeup Menu video last night and there was something really soothing about it - she is so calm and natural in front of the camera and her videos have a real consistency, so you feel like you can really trust her judgement.

Website of the Week
Mollie and Fred

I've spent ages on this website this week looking at all the pretty, quirky little things! It started off as a search for a birthday present for Emma but it has ended up with me spending ages perusing cute things for myself! I discovered Mollie and Fred when I was doing some research for work, and I'm so glad I did - if you are a sucker for a pretty mug or photo frame, or you can't get enough quirky stationary this is a site you will love (and spend money on, so stay away till pay day!!).

Style Icon of the Week
Vanessa White


I do love an aztec print top and think this one looks great on Vanessa from the Saturdays. I wouldn't be brave enough to wear the teeny tiny shorts (my legs are very, very rarely on display - thick black tights are my best friend ;)) but she looks gorgeous. I also love her makeup here - she always suits a bright lip.

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