Happy February! If you’ve been with me from the start of my blogging journey, you might remember a weekly feature called Friday Favourites. Well, I’ve got good news: It’s back! Looking back on the past week, I share some of my latest favourites; things that made me happy this week.
Listen: Dua Lipa – Swan Song
“I won’t stay quiet, I won’t stay quiet, ’cause staying silent’s the same as dying.”
Dua Lipa’s newest single features on the soundtrack of Alita: Battle Angel. It’s her first single to be featured in a movie. (She featured in Whethan’s song, “High”, for Fifty Shades Freed, however.) Well done, girl!
Plus, “Swan Song” pays homage to LGBT activists at ACT UP, an advocacy group for people with AIDS.
Alita: Battle Angel, the epic action-adventure from producers James Cameron and Jon Landau (Avatar), will be released worldwide on Valentine’s Day.
Watch: Orange Is The New Black
Looking for a new series to watch together, my boyfriend Petrie and I settled on Orange Is The New Black. It’s a great show, with authentic characters and an intriguing story line. Best of all, we still have five and a half seasons to go!
Play: Sims 4 Get Famous
Let your Sim live the lifestyle of the rich and famous and all that comes with it, from prepping for auditions to getting stalked by a crazy fan.

Drink: Bombay Gin
This past year, I have grown to love gin. Petrie and I went for a tasting date at Inverroche (look out for their review next week!), and there I learned a lot about gin.
So, my Gin of The Week is Bombay Sapphire Gin. It doesn’t come near the quality of craft gins like Inverroche and Six Dogs, but it tastes good and it is affordable.
