WHY NOT GIVE THESE A WATCH?

14 Apr 2017

If you want to procrastinate anymore than you usually do, here are some of my recommendations of series you should watch. 

BROADCHURCH
After finally finding the first two seasons on NowTV and managing to binge-watch those before catching up to season 3 which airs now on ITV, I was hooked with the storylines. At points, it screams middle-aged serial drama but I still loved series to series and showing how nothing is always perfect even in a small coastal town. I'm really enjoying the current season which is focussed on a lot of issues relevant today such as rape, victim blaming as well as issues that have been affecting young girls. 

RIVERDALE

This has pretty little liar vibes written all over it. With a great cast and great storylines, it makes for a great teen drama which I can't wait for a new episode every week to appear on Netflix. There's not much to really say on this one other than give it a go if you're a PLL fan and need something to fill that void while PLL isn't on. 

13 REASONS WHY

This one I feel I need to give no introduction to as everyone seems to be watching this. For me, a friend told me to watch it a week after release date and, by that time, I had already watched it. Having read the book years ago, of course, I was going to give this a watch and I think it really did the book justice as well as adding more drama to the storyline.
In the book, I sadly found myself unable to sympathise and empathise with Hannah Baker which is rare for me. However, the show gave me a whole different feeling. As with the book, I wasn't keen on the overall ending and, yes there were parts I disagreed with happening, but I completely understood the reasons behind the choices in order to let this be a completely real depiction of high school suicide. 
*Warning* The Show contains extremely triggering scenes as well as plot points. This, I feel, is a really important series that if you can, I would watch. If you are wary about what parts you feel may affect you, this link here is a tweet that you should definitely check out. 

DESIGNATED SURVIVOR 

This is the type of show I live for; crime-fighting, government-centred drama. When, in a terror attack, most of the congress is killed, the role of President is passed to an unlikely man. He has to juggle bringing America together as well as uncovering what caused and who was behind the terror attack. This is another Netflix watch that I can't wait to watch every week. 

11.22.63

This has to be one of my favourite series I've watched in a long time. Based on the Stephen King book, a modern English teacher is set the task of travelling back in time and stopping the assassination of JFK from happening. He was to work through it to solve who was really behind the assassination as well as dealing with threats to stop the plan from working. It has such a talented cast I couldn't not watch it and I was so happy I did. While, like any show, there were plot points I thought were weak or weren't carried out in such a great way, I really loved this series. Some people have asked for a second series to be made but I don't think it needs it. With such a bittersweet ending, I think it rounded off the series perfectly.

So there are some of my picks for you to give a go and give a watch, what have you been loving to watch recently?

MARCH FAVOURITES

1 Apr 2017



NYX LIP LINGERIE

I'm definitely late to the matte lip/liquid lipstick trend but, when I saw these in Boots, I had to give it a go. I chose the shade "Push-Up" which is a different twist on my usual dark nude choice. I was a bit wary about how this would pair with my always chapped lips but with a bit of lip balm before applying, it works! I have had a fair few compliments on this shade so that's a plus. Also, while not lasting all day long, it does leave a nice tint to my lips. It's also very easy to re-apply and layer without looking too much.  

LEWIS WATSON // MIDNIGHT

Yes, Ed Sheeran's album was an absolutely fab release this month but I've got to hand it to my fave, Lewis Watson, for releasing his second album this month which I've been loving. He has a great voice for those more chilled days which I've definitely needed in March. If you want to hear more about this or maybe want some other music recommendations, check out my articles here at Mytacism Music. 


VITAMIN E SPRAY ON MOISTURISER

After sharing my love for Superdrug's Vitamin E refreshing toning mist as a great, cheap cruelty-free spray for the summer, I discovered this spray on moisturiser. Last summer, I really enjoyed using the Vaseline spray on moisturiser but, as a cruelty-free alternative, this will be one I'll be loving these coming months. It's more hydrating and leaves my skin super smooth just as my thicker moisturisers do expect this is a little more hassle-free. 


LUSH ARGAN SHAMPOO BAR

I included this in my "CRUELTY-FREE HAIR CARE FAVOURITES' where I raved about my Jumping Juniper Shampoo Bar and how I'd recently received this shampoo bar that I couldn't wait to give a go. I'm happy to report back great things; it leaves my hair super soft, smooth and tamed. It really feels like a luxurious product. 


SLEEK CONTOUR KIT

An old favourite was my Sleek Face Form Kit. If you've been around for a while, you're probably sick of me featuring it in posts but also sick of the fact the packaging had broken; I know it annoyed me. I finally thought it was time to grab a new one and, as I used the blush a minimal amount, I thought I'd opt for the contour kit which includes the same contour bronzer and highlight that I love. So, if you were sick of the face form kit, you should be prepared to get annoyed at this contour kit's presence in future posts.

What have you been loving this month? 
Hope you're doing great,
