Welcome to my 2019 Favourites! This is where I describe how my month went, kind of like how I did with my #ClaireNotes series in 2017, but with more general things that you may know about! I hope you enjoy! Let me know what your favourites from this month were in the comments! For last year’s favourites, click here.
I may have just bought this item, but the Anti-Imperfection Daily Solution from The Body Shop has saved my imperfect (see what I did there!) face while I was in London, which is where I bought it from. My skin already cleared out dramatically and left my skin silky-smooth along the way.
Not exactly an item of clothing, but I’ve wanted these pair of glasses which I got from Primark for a while. My last ones broke and I needed a better lens anyway, so I got a quick pair for under £5! Will get a better pair eventually, I promise!
Proven Innocent tells the emotional story of one woman’s fight to prove the innocence of wrongfully convicted people. The legal drama follows an underdog criminal defence firm led by a fierce and uncompromising lawyer, Madeline Scott, who was wrongfully convicted in a sensational murder case that made her an infamous media obsession. Madeline runs the legal firm with her partner, Easy Boudreau, the very lawyer who helped set her free after 10 years in prison. Their team also includes investigator Bodie Quick and communications director Violet Price, who runs a true crime podcast that follows each investigation.
We’re more than halfway through the series, and the story keeps getting better and better. I still have no clue who committed the murder Madeline was convicted for, and we’ll probably find out very very soon! A great series for crime-loving people!
After a wish turns 12-year-old Josh Baskin (David Moscow) into a 30-year-old man (Tom Hanks), he heads to New York City and gets a low-level job at MacMillen Toy Company. A chance encounter with the owner (Robert Loggia) of the company leads to a promotion testing new toys. Soon a fellow employee, Susan Lawrence (Elizabeth Perkins), takes a romantic interest in Josh. However, the pressure of living as an adult begins to overwhelm him, and he longs to return to his simple, former life as a boy.
I’ve probably last seen this movie when I was 9 or 10 years old. But I have recently found out my teenage crush, Jay McGuiness (scroll further for more details!) is reprising his role as old Josh in BIG The Musical for a limited time in September, and I had to motivate myself to actually go see it because I might do it on my own (might write a post about this later this week)! And I also had to rewatch it for old time’s sake as well.
You can come at me and hate all you want, but I love The Wanted. I know it’s been ages since they broke up, and they had some sort of beef with One Direction (whom I also loved, by the way! Just not as much as The Wanted), but they were so underappreciated and underrated!
Since I have just seen Jay (a.k.a my favourite member, a.k.a the one with curly hair looking mighty fine!), I thought I would relive the memory of when I was once part of the TWFanmily (and if you were, comment below and let me know which is your favourite #WantedWednesday video!!).
My favourite songs by them are Chasing the Sun and their cover of Greg Laswell’s Hi and Low (the latter of which was sung completely by Jay, who barely gets and solos – I swear he’s The Wanted’s version of Niall Horan!, with the others doing the harmonies in the background).
