Baptiste

The Missing series two is one of my favourite series EVER (Keeley Hawes <3) so obviously I was going to be watching the spin off starring French detective Julian Baptiste. As you would expect, there’s a lot going on in the first episode and I can’t wait to see what’s to come.

The Great British Sewing Bee

Despite having an enormous love for fashion, I’ve never actually watched TGBSB even though it’s been on air since 2013. It’s got a new presenter though – Comedian Joe Lycett whom I adore – so one quiet Tuesday I was browsing the TV guide and saw that it had just started. Well lads, I love it.

Life of the Party

Melissa McCarthy stars as Deanna, a woman who was recently dumped by her husband. She decides to go back to college to finish her degree (coincidentally at the college her daughter goes too) and as you would expected from a Melissa McCarthy movie – It’s hilarious. Maya Rudolph (Bridesmaids) and Gillian Jacobs (Girls, Love) are brilliant. It’s got shit reviews but I loved it.

Fyre: The Greatest Party That Never Happened

What. The. Fuck. This Netflix documentary is all about the lead up too and the massive fail that was supposed to be the greatest party ever – Fyre Festival, a festival co-founded by Billy McFarland and Ja Rule. I cannot believe the absolute shambles that Fyre Festival turned out to be and my heart bleeds for the local people who were left out of pocket because of it.

Busted – Half Way There

BUSTED ARE OFFICIALLY BACK! And their fourth studio album is actually pretty good, not gunna lie, I’m into it.

We Are Offline: The Truth Behind Dressing for Instagram with Megan Ellaby

Megan Ellaby is one of my favourite blogger/instagrammer/youtube-y people so I loved this episode of we are offline. The girls and Megan talk about fast fashion and slow styling, something that is so relevant right now.

Adulting 24: Common, Fat & Faggy with Scottee

One of my favourite podcasts is BACK after it’s festive break and kicking things off with activist Scottee. I’ve never actually heard of him but I loved the way he talked about class, weight and sexuality.

Shagged, Married, Annoyed with Chris and Rosie

Comedian Chris Ramsay and his wife Rosie have a podcast! As you would probably expect, it’s really funny and they pull no punches when it comes to talking about life, marriage and being parents.
