It's been a weird time in lockdown hasn't it? I've seemed to have filled my time with baking, playing games and watching tv series. I wish I could say I've been so productive and cleaned the whole house top to bottom but I can't, so instead I thought I'd share with you a few things I've been loving the past few weeks!

WHAT I'VE BEEN USING
I've been using some products religiously the past few weeks and wanted to share them with you and why I've been loving them so much.

Nintendo Switch & Animal Crossing
It's no surprise that I got a Switch just so that I could play Animal Crossing, I was addicted to it on DS back in the day. I've been on it every single day since I got it, working on making my island as pretty as possible until I unlock more features (Can't wait to add waterfalls etc) so it's definitely been worth the money just to play a game. (My friend code is 5909-9452-8974 if you want to be friends!)

Lush Pumpkin Spice Lip Scrub
I get dry lips so much for some reason and this lip scrub seems to be the only thing that really exfoliates them enough. You don't need much to fully exfoliate your lips so one jar lasts me a good year, sometimes longer! Plus, the bonus is, it tastes delicious too.

Dermologica Nightly Lip Treatment *Gifted
Having dry lips, means I've never actually found anything that helps my lips be smooth and soft in the mornings until I tried this miracle product, a small amount after exfoliating and my lips are the softest they've ever been in the morning, which amazes me so much after all the years of trying lip treatment after lip treatment!

Dermologica Invisible Physical Defence SPF30 *Gifted 
Ever since we've had the beautiful summer weather, I've been making sure to wear suncream whenever I'm out in the sun and this has been just perfect. This is probably the best face suncream I've used, it's such a thick consistency so you need to work it into your skin but it's so soft and so far it's really helped me not end up with a burnt face!

Bubble T Cosmetics Soapscription *Gifted
I was kindly gifted a subscription of Bubble T shower gel, they're vegan and cruelty free so I jumped at the chance to try them and let me tell you, they're incredible. They lather perfectly and smell insanely delicious! They're my new favourite shower gel brand, I can't wait to try more!


WHAT I'VE BEEN WATCHING
I've spent a lot of time on my laptop lately so I always have a split screen to keep me focused (I always get bored and want to watch something, so helps!) so I've racked up quite a list of shows that I'd highly recommend!

Never Have I Ever (Netflix) ⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️
I started watching this mainly because I though it would be a good background show, but I got hooked into it pretty quickly, I had no idea I'd relate to this show so much. It's based around an Indian family living in California, Devi is the main character and it follows her journey with the sudden death of her father and her need to be cool and her mission to try and get the popular guy to fall for her. Personally I related so much to the grief side of the show (as well as the fact that I was in a wheelchair too from the shock of my dad's death) and honestly had me crying so much, I haven't cried that much in a very long time.

Normal People (BBC iPlayer) ⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️
My best friend Em recommended this show to me and oh my god, she did not disappoint me. I watched the whole season in a day, it's 12 episodes around 30 minutes each. Following the journey of Marianne and Connell from high school to University, with such a touching story. There was a few episodes that left me in tears and tugged on the heart strings loads. It's 100% worth a watch, I'm actually thinking of re-watching it again very soon.

Killing Eve (BBC iPlayer) ⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️
I've seen so much about this show and it's been on my list of shows to watch forever, so after I finished Normal People and it popped up on what to watch next, I finally started. Oh my, this show is literally everything I've ever wanted in a show. I fell in love with Jodie Comer after seeing her in Doctor Foster, and I cannot tell you how insanely incredible her acting is in Killing Eve. All I've ever wanted was a female based assassins tv show and this is it. I'm so excited to finish watching the third season (Really hate waiting every week for an episode!).

The Simpsons (Disney+) ⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️
I've loved The Simpsons for as long as I can remember, it's my all time favourite cartoon tv show and probably always will be - I even had a few seasons on DVD when I was younger than I watched over and over again. I would have gotten Disney+ just to watch Simpsons, as soon as I saw that they had all 30 seasons, I pre-ordered the year pass straight away! I don't think I could have gotten through lockdown so far without it.
