April Monthly Favourites by Stephs World

Monthly Favourites // April 2017

Welcome to my Monthly Favourites for April 2017. This month in the UK we have seen sun, rain, snow, wind and blossom. Lots and lots of Blossom!

We have also had 2 bank holiday weekends, which has been amazing! UK, I love your Bank Holiday weekends! 🙂

April has been a really busy month for me and a really great month. I hope you have all had a great April 🙂

What has happened this month:

  • I visited London with my parents and went on the London Eye, and also went with my boyfriend and friends as well as going to the Harry Potter Studio Tour.
  • Paid a visit to The House of MinaLima, the people who did the official artwork and props for Harry Potter.
  • I saw my school friend and had a lovely relaxed lunch, chat and of course; cake.
  • Spent time with friends.
  • Helped a friend move into his new apartment.
  • Visited Birmingham to go to the Pizza Festival and also my favourite place, Original Patty Men.
  • Went to go and see Guardians of the Galaxy vol. 2 – but ended up cancelling as the traffic, road closes and car park closes in Birmingham meant we missed our showing 🙁 I am gutted! I will have to make sure I see it in May!

Monthly Favourites // April 2017

Film – Fantastic Beasts and where to find them.

I love Harry Potter so when I saw Fantastic Beasts and where to find them, I loved it as well. I wouldn’t say it is as good as Harry Potter, but I can’t wait to see where the films go.

TV Show – 13 Reasons Why, Riverdale & Car Share

13 Reasons Why (Netflix)

This show has had a massive response, and rightly so. I really enjoyed (if that’s the word for it) the series and it discusses some difficult situations.

Riverdale (Netflix)
I tried to watch Riverdale a few months ago and just couldn’t get into it. After I finished 13 Reasons Why, I needed something to fill the gap, that’s where Riverdale came in. I really am enjoying the series so far and can’t wait for the next episode to be released.

Car Share (BBC iPlayer)
I loved Car Share series 1 and series 2 didn’t disappoint. It is really easy to watch and funny.

Music – Slide // Calvin Harris ft. Frank Ocean & Migos

I think this song with the sun out with the sunglasses on is perfect.

Beauty – NYX Soft Matte Lip Cream // Stockholm

I have been loving the NYX Lip Cream in the shade, Stockholm. It is not drying like other lip cream’s I have tried before, and the colour is the most perfect rose nude.

NYX Matte Soft Lip Cream - Stockholm

Food & Drink – Werther’s Original

This is a strange choice, I know, but I have really been loving Werther’s Originals this month. It is sweet, but not too sweet and will satisfy a sweet craving. What do you think of them?

Place To Be – London & Harry Potter Studio Tour

I love Harry Potter (like you didn’t know that anyway) and paid another visit to the Harry Potter Studio Tour. I am going to do a whole Photo Diary on the day and will have it live very soon.

    I visited London as well! I met some friends, so cool! Love this post, keep doing you 🙂

  • Stacey

    I’ve almost finished watching 13 reasons why and I’m really into it at the moment. It’s an interesting story and creates discussion around a sensitive subject, which is always important. I enjoyed reading about what you’ve been up to in April. Hope you have a great May.

  • Aqy✨

    I couldn’t get into Riverdale as well. But I don’t think I’m going to give the show another go haha. I miss eating Werther’s original! Yes they are too sweet but so good too. Great favourites!

    A pizza festival? I need to get on this!
    I’m a huge fan of those NYX soft matte lip creams; they’re matte but not drying at all!

    A pizza festival sounds amazing! I also really liked Fantastic Beasts, but I agree that it’s not as good as the original HP films x

    My April when super fast it consisted of assignments I think now I am going to have to watch a lot of netflix because everyone is rating it at the moment and I pay for it. You really do need to go see guardians of the galaxy because it is an amazing film it even made me laugh so much
