May Favourites 2018


Once a month I share a handful of things I’ve been enjoying lately. These are some of my favourite things from May:

  1. Crochet – I’m still working on the cardigan I mentioned last month, and crochet has been my go-to creative pastime over the past few weeks.
  2. We Are Tea Peppermint tea. Peppermint tea can be very lacking in flavour but after trying a lot of different brands, this is the mintiest one I’ve found.
  3. Comet in Moominland by Tove Jansson.
  4. During May Michael Nobbs sent out a series of 5 podcasts, which he called his Ebb Time podcasts, where he spoke about the time he’s spending away from digital life.
  5. Season 6 of The Americans.

In the same vein as beauty bloggers, and inspired by Frannerd, I thought I’d start sharing some of my favourite things each month, starting with a handful of the things I enjoyed during March.

  1. Winsor and Newton Flesh tint gouache paint
  2. The Making Obama podcast (and before this the Making Oprah podcast)
  3. Quinoa porridge
  4. The new Seawhite of Brighton Watercolour Travel Journal
  5. Season 1 of This is Us on Amazon Prime
