Homeland. Finally caught up with this series and so glad I did. Such a great drama. Claire Danes is a favourite actress of mine so naturally I love her in this (even if she gives Kim Kardashian a run for best ugly crier). I love Brody and his posh real life English accent. So good. I keep hearing good things about Nashville so definitely need to start watching that soon, it's American (obviously) and seems very musical so I am sure I will love it. I am also trying to keep up with my regular (slightly trashy) programmes including Gossip Girl, Glee and Revenge.

Looking forward to: 
Next weekend. The BFF is coming to stay for the weekend and I haven't seen her properly in ages. We are going to partake in a bit of christmas shopping, eat some delicious food and watch a certain well-loved Christmas Richard Curtis film and most likely quoting it at high speed throughout. SO excited.

Listening to:  
First Aid Kit. I love this band and we are seeing them tomorrow (can't wait!) so they have been on repeat for the past few days. Other gigs on the horizon include Ben Howard and Admiral Fallow, yay! Also - I still have Taylor Swift's new album on repeat. I have to admit I am a bit of a shameless fan girl.

Thinking about:
Where we were last year. It's odd to think that this time last year, an amazing five months of backpacking around Eastern Canada & the USA were coming to an end and we were about to begin our five month adventure in Vancouver. Take me back!

Beautiful Vancouver - Downtown & Stanley Park - November 2011

1984. I have been meaning to read this for ages (plus additional nagging from the boyfriend). I am really enjoying it but definitely need to make time for it. I love reading but recently have found myself pushing it to the wayside in favour on the internet and TV and I feel really bad about it. I keep discovering new blogs that I love every day. Two of my current favourites are Betsy Transatlantically and A Little Bird Told Me.

What are your current favourite thoughts & things?

  2. That image of Vancouver is so lovely - I love the way the trees are on one side and the city on the other! If you like dramatic TV series then you should watch 'Revenge' - I just finished series 1 and it has got so crazy! x
