Here’s a few things I have been enjoying lately.

W-Magazine Screen Tests Interviews
I have been loving these short black and white interviews with a variety of different actors lately. I like to watch interviews in general after a long day, it just kind of calms me down.
Actors on Actors by Variety
Yup – another interview series I like to binge. Actors on Actors is special to me because they pair two people of the trade and let them interview each other. The product is not as much an interview, but a conversation amongst collegues.
The End Of The Fucking World
After one of my best friends found the trailer to the new Netflix hit series The End Of The Fucking World it was only a matter of time before I had watched the whole first season. And WOW. One thing British television does best is character development in a short span of time. I can’t wait for a second season!
David Lynch’s Twin Peaks kind of just fell into my lap after rebinging Sex And The City. The actor who playes Charlotte’s first husband, Trey, also is a huge part of Twin Peaks. I watched one episode and I was hooked. It’s murder, mystery and so, so much more.
The Marvelous Mrs. Maisel
The Marvelous Mrs. Maisel (which is a handful of a title I must say) is a hilarious comedy set in the 1950’s revolving around Midge (Mrs. Maisel), a housewife who decides to start doing stand-up when her husband leaves her. Apart from the colours, the costumes and the amazing filming, this is a truly well-written story about what it meant to be a woman back then.
I only have two words to offer: WATCH IT!
Three Billboards Outside Ebbing, Missouri
A movie that leaves you wondering whether you should laugh or cry. A tragic story filled to the brim with comic relief that shows how one event can set a whole lot of change into motion. Great story, perfect cast, pretty fucking amazing movie.
Based on a true story, Molly’s Game was one of those films that turned out to be an absolute gem. I went in with low expectations and walked out feeling deeply moved.
Call Me By Your Name (Audio Book)
I listened to this whole audiobook in two days. As the film is currently being talked about a lot, I wanted to read the book before seeing it. But as the beginning of the year is always suuuuper hectic, I was struggling to find time to read anything. I listened to the audiobook whenever I could, inbetween classes, while working on projects, basically anywhere because I was so hooked. And let me just say, DAMN this book does have some pretty dirty scenes in it. But overall the writing is incredible, so descriptive and the characters are all so layered and complicated. I would recommend this to anyone who wants to see the movie, go and read/listen to the book first!
Don’t Blame Me (Meghan Rienks)
I’ve been getting into podcasts more and more recently and one I stumbled upon is “Don’t Blame Me” which is more like a comedy podcast than anything else. Meghan Rienks is hilarious! Listeners can leave her a voicemail explaining their problems and she will comment on them and suggest ways to solve them. Behind the humorous atmosphere she actually broaches some pretty serious everyday subjects.
The Basement Yard (Joe Santagato)
The Basement Yard is a podcast by YouTuber Joe Santagato and he basically just rambles on about random topics, but if you know him from his videos, you know he’s pretty damn hilarious (if that’s your kind of humour).
The Sunday Social (Lucy Moon)
Lucy Moon herself describes this series on her YouTube channel as a visual podcast. She interviews different content creators from all types of backgrounds and fields over brunch and tea. It is extremely interesting to hear about different industries (such as the music industry) and the stories of individuals in that area.

my friend, L – HAPPY BELATED BIRTHDAY! ❤️
Apart from interviewing Sea Foaming runner Abby Strangward for The Person Behind series (interview coming out in March!), I genuinely have become obsessed with this online youth culture magazine. The content they put out is just SO GOOD. Abby also has a YouTube channel which I have really come to enjoy.
Online content creator/YouTuber Lucy Moon also has a lifestyle blog here on WordPress on which she regularly posts content. I have been loving the consistent posts and the raw honest she puts into her writing.
You might know her as crystalsandcurls or simply Mia. Mia’s blog has quickly become one of my favourites here on WordPress. From fashion to travel to posts on productivity – this blog will leave you wanting more.
Chloe’s blog has become somewhat of a staple when it comes to my reading habits. Every word and thought she puts into her blog are so beautiful and inspiring, so raw and honest. I also recently interviewed Chloe for The Person Behind, which was great fun.
Although I haven’t been following Isabél’s blog for too long, I have already fallen in love with her content and the aesthetics of her blog.
