The Sunday Brunch Post, Episode XV


If this post is live and you’re reading it then that means I’ve managed to get it up and scheduled in time before a few days with no WiFi. Go me.

It’s been quite an exciting month. Last Sunday Brunch I was saying that we were about to start our flat hunt again, and am I super happy to tell you that as of yesterday we are now living in our beautiful new place.

I’m hoping that living in London is going to mean a lot more exciting blog content, as there is now so much to do right on my doorstep. And of course, I will have at least a room tour post up for you in the next few weeks.


Mildly interesting things that happened this month:

 As well as being an exciting month, it’s also been a very busy one. It was mine and Tom’s eight-year anniversary (I know, right), and we went to see In the Heights. I’ve also reviewed four other shows for the blog, including Fury at Soho Theatre and Stalking the Bogeyman at Southwark Playhouse.

Towards the beginning of the month I spent the weekend with a group of my friends from home at one of their houses in Hitchin, and two weekends since have been spent in Wales and then visiting Tom at Pilot School. I’m looking forward to spending a few weekends settling into the new flat!





Things that have kept me entertained:

You may have seen, if you follow me on Twitter, that I am attempting to read all of the books in Zoella’s Book Club with WHSmith for a round-up review type of post. So far I’ve finished Beautiful Broken Things and We Were Liars. Beautiful Broken Things is very much in the chatty YA style that I thought her choices would be, but We Were Liars has such an interesting narrative style, and a really gripping plot.

Earlier this week I went to see Finding Dory, which is arguably one of the most highly-anticipated sequels of my generation… Well, it definitely didn’t disappoint, and whilst it was never going to beat the original, it is a great follow-on full of the little quirks, humour and heart-warming moments that Pixar do so well.

As The Fault in Our Stars is on Netflix at the moment, I thought it was about time I finally got around to watching it. I’d read the book already so I didn’t think I would cry, but yep, I sobbed.

There are two YouTubers who I’ve somehow only just discovered, and I have been making up for lost time, binging all of their past videos. So if you, like me, are lagging behind in the YouTube world, go check out Dodie Clark and Hannah Witton.


This month's haul:

 I’ve been pretty good with saving for the big move this month, but I did pick up these two pairs of sunglasses in the Zara sale, for about £5 each. Ah-mazing.


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