A Month in Pictures: May 2019

May 31, 2019
Blog post

It’s the last day of the month which means it’s time for another month in pictures post! Overall May 2019 was a great month, filled with food, cocktails, trips and new ventures.

Eurovision Song Contest

Easily the best part of May is the Eurovision! It’s cheesy, politically controversial and so much fun to watch and have a laugh at. This year the contest was held in Tel Aviv, Israel. There were a few controversial moments which made viewers go ‘ohhhhhh!’ such as Iceland who displayed Palestinian flags and Madonna’s politically charged and absolutely terrible performance. Aside from that, it was a great show and mum and I ordered an Indian takeaway for the occasion which was delicious. I was pretty disappointed in the UK’s song entry, let’s be honest, it wasn’t great. Every year the UK plays it safe with a 1 person ballad which just gets lost in all the bright colours, gimmicks, fancy staging and funny performances from the other countries.

Started Live Streaming

This is a little scary to announce but at the start of May 2019, I started live streaming on Twitch! My friend’s new boyfriend introduced us to the world of Twitch and it looked like a lot of fun. It’s oddly addicting watching other people playing games live and I found myself watching people playing The Sims for 3 hours straight! As I’ve been playing The Sims since I was around 8/9 years old I thought I’d give streaming a go too! I was nervous to start and kept it off my social media as I wanted to see how it went first, but I’ve been really enjoying it. It’s a lot of fun playing the game and having other people talk and interact with you about it. So, shameless plug time, if you’re at all interested in watching me play The Sims on Twitch then give me a follow!

Bank Holiday Weekend in London

The last May bank holiday I spent with Jaz, my fiance, in London and it was a lot of fun. We went on the London Eye for the first time since we were both kids, ate some good food, drank a lot, watched movies and drove past our house development! I love driving past the development and seeing the progress of our house build. Last we saw the had a big delivery of bricks which hopefully means the foundations are pretty much complete and the house will be going up soon! We have roughly 4 months until the house is complete and we can actually move in which is both exciting and scary. You can read all about what we did during the may 2019 bank holiday here.

Watched New Movies

This month I watched 3 new movies.

Extremely Wicked, Shockingly Evil and Vile

I’d been really looking forward to watching this and was not disappointed. Zac Efron and Lily Collins did a fantastic job portraying the characters! I thought it was a really interesting movie to watch and told the story from a completely different perspective.

The Secret Life of Pets 2

This was such a cute movie! Jaz and I watched the first one when it came out in the cinema so we had to go and see this one too. It was funny, light-hearted and involved a wild tiger who was absolutely adorable.

I had my doubts about Aladdin but it was amazing! It was completely mesmerising from start to finish and I was so impressed by the actors playing Aladdin and Jasmine. It was difficult seeing Will Smith as the genie as Robin Williams made that role and he will always be the genie in my eyes, but I think Will Smith did do a good job overall. I’d definitely recommend this movie to all Disney fans.

Aladdin May 2019

Those are all mu May 2019 highlights! We’re now heading into my least favourite months of the year, the summer months. I’ve no idea what to expect from June and have made zero plans so far. All I’m hoping is that it won’t be unbearably hot and the hayfever stays away!

I hope you all enjoyed this post. Let me know what you got up to in May 2019. Don’t forget to subscribe to my blog while you’re here. You can also follow me on Instagram, Twitter and Pinterest too. Thanks for reading!

    Your month looks like so much fun! I love to watch Eurovision as well (also with compulsory take out food). I need to make time this month to see Aladdin and Secret Life of Pets 2! I’m excited to see Aladdin on the West End this month too before it closes. Great post ♥

    Looks like a great month! How fun that you are streaming on Twitch now!! Also, I just watched that Ted Bundy movie and wow! They did a great job with it. I’m glad they didn’t romanticize him, which would have been easy with Zac Efron. So creepy and unnerving to know that it actually happened though, like, oh my gosh!!

      It was so scary to start streaming but it is a lot of fun! Right?! It was so creepy! Especially as he seemed like a regular guy, it made me so mad that all the girls were falling for his charms but I know I probably would’ve too. It’s scary to think that can just happen to anyone at anytime!
