So this is something that a lot of bloggers/vloggers do a lot and I thought I’d give it a go. I can’t quite believe that the first month of 2015 has already come to an end! Where does the time go?!
Herman Ze German
One day this month I was working in Soho at a press junket and I had a very short lunch so I went out to find food. I was looking for a Costa or some other coffee shop but then I stumbled across Herman Ze German. I’d seen a couple of people I follow on Twitter tweet about it so thought I’d give it a go – it was so good. I had a Bockwurst in a bun and if I could have sat in the restaurant I’d totally would have had their chips too because they looked great. If you’re in London you should totally check the place out – the staff are super lovely too.
This was a crazy film but I was sucked into and riveted by Jake Gyllennhaal’s performance as two guys who look exactly the same. Enemy is a strange yet captivating movie that definitely needs to be seen more than once to fully grasp what’s going on. I’d recommend you watch it though be prepared to be left a bit confused. It’s brilliant to watch a film that makes you think and is quieter and a lot different to typical Hollywood films.
Secret Avengers Vol. 1: Let’s Have a Problem – Ales Kot and Michael Walsh
This is my favourite comic I’ve read so far this year – I know it’s only January but the point still stands! I love the art, I love the characters and their interactions and the story is kind of whacky but great. If you want to get into Marvel comics and you’ve seen the films this is a great place to start as it has a lot of characters seen in the films – the only ones not seen in the MCU (yet) is Spider-Woman and MODOK. You can read my review of it here – I loved it.
Taylor Swift’s 1989
I bought this album at the start of the month and I don’t think I’ve been this addicted to an album for years. My respect for Taylor Swift has grown over the past few months as she takes a stand for feminism and her fans and while I have got a few of her past albums I haven’t liked them as much as this one. My favourite songs are Welcome to New York, New Romantics, Style and (of course) Shake It Off. I also love Blank Space and the video is perfection and a great way to stick two fingers up at the media who always comment on her relationships.
They were some of my highlights of the month – what about you, anything you discovered that’s so great you have to share?
