April Favourites

So maybe I missed a month and didn't do a March favourites post, but March was a bit of a mad one and April has had a lot more good stuff, so I'm back at it now. Enjoy!

My absolute number one favourite has to be the release of Missy Higgins' new album, Solastalgia, which is everything I had hoped it would be and more. She's so diverse as an artist and I think this album really shows that - from the moment Futon Couch, the first single, was released, I knew it was going to be Very Bloody Good. And it is; my favourite songs are Cemetery (so vastly different to almost everything else she's ever put out) and 49 Candles. Big shout out to Red Moon, too. You can listen to it on Spotify HERE and I really think you should.

Another favourite was tapas at a little place on Mathew Street in Liverpool called Para Ti; it was full of Spanish people which is obviously how you recognise a good tapas bar, and I had pisto, and chicken cooked in rosemary and olive oil, and the best cheesy garlic bread anyone has ever had ever. It's definitely worth checking out if you're in the area and you can find it (we did walk past it at first, but it's on a corner up a few steps and it's 100% worth walking past all the promoters trying to get you into their bars).

I posted an interview with author Fiona Mitchell this month, too, and I'm really proud of it - I love doing interviews with people who have done exciting things, and releasing a book is incredibly exciting so it was so fun to get to ask Fiona some questions about her experience. You can read it here if you haven't already! I've also secured some brand collaborations this month, which you'll see on my blog in the next few weeks - I have posts coming with Old English Co who do beautiful homeware/stationery, and one of my favourite little brands ever, A Pony Called Steve, who have sent me a cute little travel set for my summer trip to Belgium.

Actually, planning said trip to Belgium has been another favourite of mine - I'm meeting my best friend and her boyfriend out there, but I get to Brussels a few days before they do so I'm taking a day trip to Ghent before we spend some time together in the capital, and then we are all off to Bruges which I'm obviously excited about because I can spend the day pretending to be Colin Farrell. If you've been to Brussels, Ghent or Bruges and have any blog posts, please send them my way!

So they're my April favourites! Hope you all had a smashing month.
