Spring favourites and a catch up - Lifestyle post

Hey guys,

I'm here today with a little monthly favourites / life update post. The last one of these I did was back in February, so we need a catch up.
It's been a busy few months with all my university deadlines, I've now finished my second year of university with a 2:1 and am already thinking about my dissertation and final major project, I've also started two new part time jobs in retail which has been keeping me very busy.

To celebrate the end of the uni year I went with my coursemates to Star Glazers in Falmouth a new pottery painting cafe, I haven't been to one of these in years ( I remember have birthday parties at cafes like this as a young kid) so I set my self very low standards and had no clue where to start with my design but I am so happy with my final cup, some pretty free hand flowers in pinks and purples pretty,

Obviously another highlight would have to be my birthday, (read more about it here) but my best friends spoiled me rotten and I had the best day (assuming most of you guys love La la land too how lush is this card) 

My favourite films, books and music include
 - 20th century women, we went to see this at the poly in Falmouth at the start of May and I am still obsessed with it. If you like films like Dazed and Confused you'll love it but it has so many more themes running through with cross - generational relationships, music, politics and feminism. The sound track is amazing too. I love it because its one of those films that are aesthetically pleasing so beautiful to watch yet the story lines are so amazing. It also had some really funny moments....seriously just go watch it!
- Man Men, a few years too late to this party but I'd heard so much about "one of the best shows of the decade" and the other titles it's received plus who doesn't love Jon Ham, I'm only one season in but I am loving it, again the music and fashion is amazing. Again its covering great themes such as the pill coming into place and women's role in the work place.
- Pretty little liars, not so critically great but I recently re-watched most of it in aid of the last ten episodes and actually still think the show before mid season 4 was amazing. The current new episodes are just getting and bit weird but I'm still obsessed with the characters. Plus I just want Hanna and Caleb and Toby and Spencer to end up back together, I used to love Aria and Ezra too but now I'm not so sure how I feel about those two. 
- Milk and Honey by Rupi Kaur, my only book favourite is here because I've recently been getting more and more into poetry and this is a great author to start off with I think. This poems are very relevant to the 21st century and super relatable.   
- Malibu by Miley Cyrus, Miley Cyrus was one of the first people I obsessed / 'Fangirled' over and clearly that never stopped her newest single is just beautiful and I'll probably have it on repeat all summer long.
- Harry Styles by Harry Styles this final favourite I am finding weird to write. I am loving music from someone who used to be in One Direction and its just weird. When One direction were really big I was in high school and in the 'emo phase' the idea of liking one direction or anyone like them was horrific but yep I've fallen for Harry Styles in all his Gucci dressed charm. This album is perfect pop rock, easy listing and to get you into classic rock artists ( some have described it to have similarities with anyone from Bob Dylan to The eagles). My favourite tracks are Meet me in the hallway, Two Ghosts, Kiwi and Carolina.

My final favourites / highlight is the launch of Undergrad magazine which will be launched for sale online soon (I'll add the link as soon as I can). It is a magazine founded by a graduate of my course at Falmouth university all about the amazing fashion and photography talent in and around Falmouth... so cool! Plus its a little lug to my first piece of published writing, I wrote an article about "21st century feminism and fashion" and am loving developing my writing skills further. 

It's been a great few months and I am in Cornwall on my own (all me uni friends have gone home for summer) busy working but looking forward for summer to get into full swing. Hope you are all well?

Love Charlotte
