Happy Friday! I am currently on my way to the Manchester Airport to pick up my mom! I am super excited that we'll get to spend this next week together here in Nottingham, in Edinburgh, and also in London. I think we'll have a bunch of great adventures, and I just hope she appreciates me waking up at 5 am to surprise her at the airport. While on this two hour train ride, I thought I'd fill you in on some of the things I've been loving lately since I haven't done a Friday 5 in a while!
I have been working with more brands recently, which is really exciting, but also really scary because it's all very new. I needed to make an invoice for a sponsored blog post and I had no clue where to start, but this invoice generator save the day! It's free and incredibly easy, but it also looks very professional if you ask me. I'd definitely try it out if you're in the same boat as me!
2. George Ezra - Blame it On Me
Okay, yes, I will admit I jut recently heard this song…like yesterday, but I'm obsessed. I love George Ezra in general - that voice is like heaven - but I am really addicted to the sound of this one right now. However, I'm also a big fan of Budapest and Benjamin Twine.
3. One Direction - Clouds
I wrote a post about the while album here, but this is a relatively new favorite. It didn't catch my attention at first, but the more I listen to the album, the more I like this song. It's very catchy, but very well written, too.
4. Mockingjay Part 1
I saw Mockingjay at the midnight showing on Thursday with some of my uni friends and I'm 94% positive it's my favorite so far. Maybe it's because I read the books so long ago I was actually surprised by this installment, or maybe it's because it's so different from the first two on account of the fact that there are no games in this one, I don't know. I just really enjoyed the fact that it felt new and exciting, whereas the other two felt too similar.
5. Toffee Popcorn
I feel a bit strange throwing this in, but I'm in a serious toffee popcorn phase. It just says holidays to me and it's sweet enough, but not too sweet…perfect middle ground. Plus, Tesco has their own selling for a pound, which is just steady fueling my addiction.
