I’m so happy to be saying “hello” to the warmer weather and longer daylight hours that we are starting to see with the appearance of spring. I’m also looking forward to the long Easter weekend (so overdue!) So today I’m just sharing a few of my March favourites that I’ve been enjoying this spring.
Metcalfe’s Skinny Cinnamon Spice Topcorn
Popcorn is a fairly guilt-free treat and I have discovered the crème de la crème of skinny popcorns – this cinnamon spice flavour! Honestly, give it a try – it’s so yummy. So far I have only seen it in Sainsburys, so I made sure I stocked up!
I discovered PMJ on Youtube and I fell in love with their vintage-style remakes of pop tunes. If you need to see it to understand how amazing this idea is, check out this 50’s interpretation of My Heart will Go On, the 1920’s Gatsby-style version of Bad Romance or Umbrella done in the style of Singin’ in the Rain. I also recently saw them live in the gorgeous Albert Hall in Manchester. I would highly recommend seeing them in concert – they have such great stage presence and there was the most amazing atmosphere at the event.
English Apple & Summer Plumb Shea Body Butter
Wow this stuff is just gorgeous. It’s so thick it could do with a little spatula to scoop it out, and it smells like summer apple desserts. It’s made with shea butter so it’s a really luxurious treat for the skin and I love it!
Unwinding with a jigsaw
Relaxing after work isn’t always easy and I find that the constant distraction of my tablet, iPhone and the TV makes it harder sometimes. Actually switching off from all technology and just reading a book or doing a jigsaw instead is far more relaxing. I have really enjoyed completing this one, whilst wishing I was sat in a café bar drinking Aperol Spritz in an Italian coastal town.
What we do in the shadows.
I have no idea why we randomly decided to watch this on Netflix. It’s such a weird concept – a mockumentary about a group of vampires flatsharing in New Zealand and getting to grips with the modern world – but we found it so funny we have now watched it 3 times! It’s full of that subtle deadpan sort of humour that really amuses me, plus they have German accents (funny!). If you know much about vampires it will amuse you to see that the characters parody the different ages of vampires – from the oldest vampire in the flat Peter, based on Nosferatu, to a Dracula parody, plus a couple of younger “cooler” vampires. A rare hidden gem on Netflix.
