Currently I'm...#23


Listening To:
Wolf Alice. So much Wolf Alice. I heard Bros quite a while ago and loved it, then heard Giant Peach back in February and, again, loved it. For some reason though, it wasn't until I heard You're A Germ a few months ago that Wolf Alice made their way onto my radar. I spent a couple of months listening to them on Spotify but when I was in HMV after uni the other day, I bought their debut album, My Love Is Cool. I'm in love. There's no way of properly describing Wolf Alice's sound but they somehow manage to get the perfect balance between loud and soft. They can be folk, they can be grunge, they can be indie, they can be rock. I don't know how they do it but whatever it is, they've mastered it. I love their sound so much and Ellie Rowsell has quickly became my new style icon and permanent crush. As a wee Wolf Alice starter kit, I'd recommend Freazy, Bros, You're A Germ and Silk. 

Reading:
I've really been letting the side down on the reading front because I haven't actually finished a book for quite some time now. The last book I read was Worn Stories by Emily Spivack which was just gorgeous in every way and insanely original. Now I'm reading Palo Alto by James Franco because I fell in love with the film adaptation a few months ago. It's pretty good so far. I had no idea James Franco could write but he sure as hell can. 

Watching:
I recently got into Him & Her and when I say "got into", I mean got mildly obsessed and watched three full seasons of it twice in one week. It's public knowledge that I'm a die-hard Russell Tovey fan and Him & Her has just increased my love for him. It's easily one of the funniest shows I've ever watched and the fact that it's all set in one apartment really impresses me for some reason. It's so simple yet so incredibly effective. If you haven't watched it, you really should. It's bloody great. 

Loving:
Wee bit mundane but I recently treated myself to a new desk because I'm a cool teenager with a buzzing social life. It's from IKEA, made of bamboo and is just really lovely. I went all out and bought a new desk chair while I was at it and I realised the desk didn't have storage so I bought a set of drawers too. And a new plant. And a candle. And a cat coaster that says 'Piss Off' on it. My room has never looked so good. As a uni student, I spend a sad amount of time at my desk so it was about time I got one that wasn't falling apart. 


I can't leave this post without apologising for yet another accidental hiatus. When I came back from my last blogging break back in August I really thought I was back for good and that things would go back to normal but life got in the way again and it just didn't work out. I started uni in September and it quickly started to take up pretty much all of my time. When I wasn't in uni or travelling to and from uni, I was sleeping or doing uni work at home. Even when I had time to myself I just didn't feel inspired to post. I'm really sorry but yeah, sometimes life just gets in the way and you've gotta let it do its thing. I'm not saying I'm back for good this time but I'll sure as hell start putting in some effort again. Thanks for sticking with me ♥
