My first monthly favourites post! 🙂
This month has been a continuation of my recovery (I hope I can write more about this in the near future) but I still have some favourite things from this month that I want to share with you.
N.B: The background flowers in this picture are from my amazing friends and family over the last few months. Feel so blessed to be surrounded by such kind and thoughtful people <3 <3
Yoga with Adriene
I have loved and followed Adriene on YouTube for a while now and unfortunately had to take a break during my illness. Now in my recovery, Adriene’s yoga videos have been so incredible in helping me rebuild my strength slowly and in my own time, in the comfort of my own house. Its been so calming and encouraging, I can’t recommend her videos enough!
You can check out her channel here on Yoga with Adriene on YouTube
After the Quake – Haruki Murakami
As is the theme of this post (and my 2018 so far…) I wanted to get back into reading, after not having done so during my illness. After the Quake was the perfect book to get me into it, as it was so easy to read and page-turning. It has six different short stories, each loosely tied in with the timing of the 1995 Kobe earthquake. The stories touch on several different themes, and are varying in the different thoughts and emotions that it provokes. A really good and quick read by Murakami, even though the stories themselves are only about 10 pages long, you get really immersed in each characters world, and it gets really hard to put down!
The Royal Tenenbaums (2001)
This Wes Anderson comedy from 2001 has some really big names: Ben Stiller, Owen Wilson, Danny Glover, Bill Murray, Gwyneth Paltrow and so on. (Check out the details on IMDB) I really enjoy Wes Anderson films, and this was no exception. I loved the theme and tone of this, its about a dysfunctional family living in New York, who are reunited after their estranged father shows up. The three kids are all child prodigies, who have grown up, and shows the family life when they all come back under one roof.
Its quite a long film, but I would definitely say it is worth watching! Perfect for a film night after a long day.
Friends (1994 – 2004)
So I know most people have probably watched this already, but I had only watched a few episodes here and there. I was in bed for so long during my recovery and had almost no energy to do anything, I decided to take this opportunity to binge watch Friends on Netflix! Its a great show for light watching and I can finally understand all the references 😀
What are your favourites from March and what are you looking forward to in April? Let me know!
