November has been and gone and while I am fully extra and in Christmas mode right now, let’s throw it back to what I got up to. November was a crazy busy month and I’m really excited to share it with you all!
I got a good bit of reading in this month, despite the fact that it’s been super busy! My favourites start off with Stuff I’ve Been Feeling Lately by Alicia Cook, a collection of poetry that I really connected with – I’ve loved both of her collections and I can’t wait to read more. Up next a true favourite and one for all Feminists – New Erotica For Feminists, this made me laugh so hard and I wrote a review ahead of its release here. And my final two reads were ARCs and I can’t wait to share my full reviews with you in 2019! Pilu of the Woods and The Year I Didn’t Eat were both brilliant reads for different reasons. Keep your eyes peeled.
From the moment I found out about it I knew I wanted to see Bohemian Rhapsody. I love Queen and think Freddie was one of the greatest showmen on earth. This film was incredible and I was surprisingly emotional watching it. If you haven’t seen it yet make sure you do, you won’t regret it.
Ali’s 25th Birthday
Not only did I get the boy back from tour at the end of October (yay) it was also his 25th birthday. We spent the day in London as he was working BUT went out with friends the following weekend. Can we take a second to appreciate my hair actually going well to go out, I was so proud of it.
Six The Musical
Your next favourite musical is here. The six wives of Henry VIII take back the spotlight to tell their stories. I went with my friend Lucy and it was absolutely incredible, I’ve had the soundtrack on repeat. They’re going to go back to London soon and you can read my post all about it here.
Spice Girls Tickets!
Yes, I did it. It kicked me out multiple times but I am going to see The Spice Girls in June 2019. I don’t even know how to put my excitement into a paragraph. I’M GOING TO SEE THE SPICE GIRLS (again).
How do you spend your Thursday nights? I meet up with some of my closest friends and go to a Harry Potter quiz. Oh my lord, this was so much fun. There were decorations, super hard questions and prizes. We might not have one but I can’t WAIT for the next one. All the info on the quizzes is here for you.
Tonight Alive 10th Anniversary Show
Ali and I have been fans of Tonight Alive since we were teenagers, so we got tickets to see them at Bush Hall, London for a special acoustic show to celebrate 10 years. It was incredible and like nothing I’ve ever seen before. Beautiful.
The UK Blog Awards!
I’m in the running for a UK Blog Award! You can read all about it and even vote if you want to by clicking here.
Thank U, Next
If you haven’t been dancing along to this absolute TUNE what are you doing? So I’ve listened to the song constantly and then on the last day of November the Queen Ariana Grande dropped the video. This is a pre-teen dream with most of the dreams I loved watching in one place with my favourite song of the year.
What were your favourites in November? Let me know in the comments below!

That Harry Potter quiz night sounds like such a great time! I would love to go to one, but I’m not sure if there’s any similar events near where I live in the US. I also really enjoyed Ariana’s music video; I really enjoyed the mix of movies featured in it!
It was great fun, definitely have a look! I know! 3/4 were movies I had on repeat growing up!
It sounds like you had a great month! I haven’t seen Bohemian Rhapsody yet but hopefully I will soon and the Harry Potter quiz sounds amazing. I wish I could do it! As for my favourites, Fantastic Beasts and the Crimes of Gringlewald has to be my favourite movie of the month but the ending was annoying because we have to wait for the next movie to come out in two years but overall it was great!
It was pretty cool! Yes definitely do! Ah I haven’t seen it yet, I found out about the end and I’m a little wary about it!
