5 things I enjoyed in May / June

5 things I enjoyed in May / June

May and June have gone by so fast that I feel like I have not had the chance to enjoy 5 things in each of these months (or rather 5 things worth talking about on here anyway!).

I have mentioned before that I love Marvel movies so obviously I could not miss what was advertised as "the most ambitious crossover in history". I will not spoil it if you have not seen The Avengers: Infinity War yet (what have you been doing seriously?!) but all I can say is that when the end credits rolled I was not ready for it to be over! I am already so prepared for the next one, I bet this one will be even more emotional! 

As pictured above, I recently started using Tarte's Gifted mascara. This is the first mascara I have tried from the brand Tarte but I absolutely love it. The packaging is also absolutely beautiful - I think it was a limited edition. I found that the mascara was very lengthening and long-lasting. As you are probably aware, Tarte is a cruelty-free brand so that's obviously a much-appreciated bonus. I have not been using much else than this one since I've had it!

Back in summer last year, I started listening to the "No Such Thing As A Fish" podcast. I am including it in this month's things that I enjoyed because I have finally finished listening to all the old episodes. The podcast is made by 4 of the "QI elves" (of UK TV programme QI fame) so if you already know and watch the programme, you would love the podcast. In every podcast, each of the 4 elves presents their favourite fact of the week and a conversation ensues. The facts can be serious or silly  and this is what makes me love this so much. It is both a fun and educational podcast in my opinion and I would definitely recommend it.  You can download episodes for free: here.

You might be wondering why the main picture is a Spanish version of Harry Potter. At the end of 2017, I was thinking of refreshing my Spanish knowledge and I thought that reading a book that I already know and love in that language could help. I finished reading the first book in June and I was so proud of myself. I managed to read it without too much difficulty and it was very rewarding (definitely tooting my own horn here...).

As with previous months, I'm sharing the song I enjoyed the most for the past couple of months. It is Youngblood by Australian band 5 Seconds of Summer. I have enjoyed their music since I saw them opening for One Direction (no shame!) back in 2014. This song from their new album is quite upbeat, well the melody is, the lyrics maybe not so much!


And you, what did you enjoy in the past few months?
