It’s August and we are all about…

August Favourites

It’s August and it is still freezing outside…Winter we get it, you may go and get the sun now please!

This month we day dream of the sun in Mexico, not-so-patiently await new Ariana Grande music and catch up on the latest Marvel flick.

Music: Ariana Grande
August 17th can’t come soon enough! Ariana Grande’s much anticipated new album Sweetenerofficially drops later this month but the creative songstress has already released No Tears Left to Cry, The Light is Comingfeaturing Nicki Minaj (and produced by Pharrell) & most recently God is a Woman. When talking to her fans online, she confirmed the real reason behind her album artwork being upside down – it was down to her showing her bestie Aaron the image. I like it!

Travel: Tulum
It’s easy to catch yourself day dreaming when it’s freezing and stormy outside! As soon as you even search Tulum, the images that come up straight away are of beautiful beaches with sunshine, like get me on a holiday stat please! Tulum, located in Mexico doesn’t just have beaches on offer, 1000 years old ruins scatter the coastlines with food and drink galore and even a oceanside yoga studio – it will have you completely at zen.

Film: Ant-Man and the Wasp
Marvel are really on a roll this year – first the latest Avengersinstalment in April then Deadpool 2in May and now Ant-Man and Wasp!? The flick is the follow-up to the 2015 Ant Man movie and spoiler alert: Evangeline Lily as Wasp/Hope Van Dyne kicks ass the entire time. She’s also joined by Paul Rudd, T.I, Michael Douglas and Michelle Pfeiffer for an action-filled two hour spectacular that was so good, I had to see it twice.

Quote: Jessie J

I saw this on Jessie J’s Instagram story the other week and had to save it.
“Shit happens, life is tough. Drink plenty of water. Stay away from mean people. Listen to your gut. Learn to say “f**k you, I’m awesome, smart and beautiful.”
