The Sunday Brunch Post, Episode XII


Hello Sunday Brunch, I've missed writing you up every other week. But it does feel good having a month's break between each post, and consequently having much more to tell y'all about. 

Seeing as this is a reflection on April, it should have gone up last Sunday, but I'm trying this thing where I remember that my blog is just a hobby and don't let myself get stressed about getting posts up 'on time'. I mean, I'm the only one who knows my blog schedule, so no one else is going to be bothered if I ramble on about travelling on a Friday instead of a Tuesday...


Mildly interesting things that happened this month:

April was another super busy month and in the first week alone I saw three shows: Mrs Henderson Presents, Nell Gwynn and Spring Awakening. I'm so grateful to get these opportunities, through work, through blogging and through friends who love performing. 

I also took my little brother to the circus for the afternoon, which was a really fun experience. Apart from in Cambodia, I don't think I'd been to the circus since I was a lot younger. 

This month I've had just the right balance of seeing my friends and I've had some hilarious nights out and lovely catch-up meals. 

Last weekend I finished off the month seeing Raleigh Ritchie live, and then enjoying the long weekend watching Zootropolis at the cinema and going on a long overdue shopping trip. 


Things that have kept me entertained:

As I just mentioned, I saw Zootropolis last weekend, which was such a great film. I love kids films, often just as much as adult films, and this is one that I know I'll happily watch over and over again. 

I won't talk too much about TV, as I wrote a post about my most recent watches earlier this week, but I have been watching Made in Chelsea too. I'm not loving at as much as I used to though; it's just become too repetitive and unoriginal.

My album of the month has to be Everything You've Come to Expect by The Last Shadow Puppets. Although I liked it on my first listen, it took a few loops of the album for me to completely fall in love with it. I love the unpredictability of it, and picking out strands of other genres that have heavily or mildly influenced the sounds of the album.


This month’s haul:

I was really good at saving in April, and the only things I bought were replacements of skincare products of which I'd run out.

I needed a new primer so I have been trying The Body Shop's Tea Tree Pore Minimiser, which works really well at the same time as soothing the skin. I had just run out of the Face Mist and Moisturiser from the Vitamin C range so I thought I'd try the same products from the Vitamin E range. This range is great, but The Vitamin C is definitely still my favourite.


Posts I’ve loved:



And finally, here’s a round-up of what I posted over the last month:
