In Depth Album Review of Taylor Swift’s ‘Lover’

Hello all,

If a rock is what you have been living under for the past week, you may not know. However, if you are any regular human with an internet connection, you would have likely seen that Taylor Swift released her new album ‘Lover’, possessing 18 songs about the concept of love and all its various and beautiful forms. As a massive fan of Taylor and her music I was excited to hear the new songs but was worried considering the first two singles released ‘ME!’ and ‘You Need To Calm Down’ both came across quite lyrically amateur. Thankfully, all my doubts were proven wrong, as I simply cannot get enough of this new music! It’s a new, transformative era of Taylor Swift. One that has came about through maturity and as a result of the trials and tribulations undergone by Taylor, both privately and publicly in recent years.

10 Reasons Why You Should Be Watching HBO’s ‘Euphoria’

There is a new show in town and it is commonly known as ‘Euphoria’ and I am just slightly obsessed with it! The new HBO Drama created by Sam Levinson, stars Zendaya, Jacob Elordi and Hunter Schafer. It also features a stunning supporting cast of actors, which for many, is their first mainstream appearance! The show deals with a multitude of themes throughout its 8 episode run, including but not limited to; sexual repression, violence, substance abuse, depression & other mental illnesses and gender identity. It is a groundbreaking and confronting series for many reasons and breaks a lot of traditional barriers that previously produced teenage-themed shows did not engage with.

My Thoughts On Instagram Removing The ‘Like’ Feature?

Hello all,

Happy Thursday! It is unlike me to post a blog post on a Thursday. However, I thought I would just do a stream-of consciousness and blog about the new update that was introduced for trial in Australia this morning. It has been quite a contentious update which has had many people either wanting it gone as soon as possible or wanting it to become a permanent feature. My thoughts are quite mixed and I want to cover as many bases as possible in this post and hope I can do just that.

New Zealand Travel Diary: Queenstown Day 5 & 6

Happy Saturday! This post is coming to you all a little later than expected, as I have been so busy! This post also begins our adventures in the wonderful Queenstown. We had a great time in Christchurch, although it ended up being a lot different than expected. It was really quiet and peaceful. It seemed as if people were in hibernation. I know that Christchurch’s peak season is not in the winter, but I did not expect it to be this quiet. Nonetheless, we made the most of the time we had in this city. Although, we certainly spent our fair share of funds on Ubers and Olas. Anyway, this was our next two days, which began where we last left off. Enjoy!

New Zealand Travel Diary: Christchurch Day 3 & 4

Happy Tuesday! I am now onto my travel diary for day 3 & 4 of Christchurch! These have been the best yet and have been so enjoyable (and also a little stressful at one point). Basically, the two main things we did both days were pre booked attractions and both lived up to the hype that was surrounding them on trip advisor! The Christchurch Gondola and the International Antarctic Center! These took up most of each day and so we didn’t really get around to much else, but the fun had on both two attractions made up for this! Hope this update is informative and enjoyable! We are having a great trip and I am so excited to see where the rest of this trip takes us! Happy reading!

New Zealand Travel Diary: Christchurch Day 1 & 2

Happy Sunday! If you were not aware already, I am currently in New Zealand on holiday with one of my closest friends Annalise! We have been planning this trip since about December 2018, so it feels a bit surreal that it is finally here. The trip we have planned is a 13 day trip to the South Island of New Zealand. We begin our travels in Christchurch, where we are staying for four nights exploring, drinking and eating out. We then travel down to Queenstown by plane on the 26th of June. After we get down to Queenstown we have lots of plans including day trips to Wanaka, Milford Sound and Glenorchy and also exploring Queenstown itself. Finally after six nights there, we travel by plane again to Dunedin (located the furtherest south) for the remaining three nights! We then fly home back to Brisbane on the 5th July! Hope you enjoy reading about the details of my trip to New Zealand. I wanted to document the trip in detail every 2 days. Not only so I have a detailed memory of my trip stored in my blog for future reference but also to update my family and friends of what I am doing and how (and every reason why there jealously was well-founded). Enjoy! Continue reading “New Zealand Travel Diary: Christchurch Day 1 & 2”

Movie & TV Wrap-up: June 2019

Today I am coming to you with my movie and TV wrap-up for June 2019, which is about a week behind us at this point. The reason I am writing this post so late in the next month is because as you probably saw, I was in New Zealand from the 22nd of June to the 5th July! Onto the movies and TV shows though. This past month was a great month for the big and small screen, which produced some really engaging, emotionally powerful and fun productions! It was definitely far better than last months catastrophe-of-a-month. I won’t ramble on about my pointless generalised opinions though – instead I will delve right into the juicy opinions on this months best and worst of film and TV.
