Well if 2020 hasn’t already been bad enough, May has just been another dumpster fire! Things are absolutely crazy right now. We’re still getting through the pandemic and the country is literally and figuratively on fire. I hope you are all staying safe through all of these hard times.
For lighter new, I have a round-up of things I loved in May.
First, did you watch the first season of Zoey’s Extraordinary Playlist? I loved the show and I’m waiting to hear if it’s picked up for a 2nd season on NBC. I hope so! During the season finale, the cast sang “American Pie” and I was obsessed with their rendition of it that I had it on repeat on Spotify for like a week.
Next up, I’m sure a lot of you watched Tiger King on Netflix earlier this spring. News broke earlier this month that Nicolas Cage would play Joe Exotic in a movie. Jimmy Fallon did an impersonation of Nicolas Cage impersonating Joe Exotic and it’s so funny!
Did you watch the Graduate Together special on TV? Since pretty much all the seniors in the US won’t be able to finish out their last years of high school, college, etc. there was a special on TV for everyone to celebrate. Ben Platt and his brothers, who apparently are also amazing singers, sang a medley of songs and I am obsessed! I wish it was on Spotify so I wouldn’t have to play it from YouTube every time I want to hear it!
I wrote last week about my latest quarantine binging and the latest season of The Last Kingdom and the latest season of Outlander were on the list so I had to include them in my favorites for this month. And speaking of The Last Kingdom, I’ve also enjoyed listening to the podcast featuring 3 of the stars just talking about the show and life.
Now for some non-tv/entertainment favorites. I got this Laura Mercier Brush last year when I was sent the translucent powder to try out. I love the brush so much and have been using it a lot lately. The unique shape contours perfectly to your face.
Now for 2 food favorites. Do you love deviled eggs? I do. After not having them in a long time, I made some on Easter back in April. Since then, I have made them soooo many times because I’ve been on this huge kick. I’m not exaggerating. I think I’ve made them 4 or 5 times since Easter… Here is an old blog post I did on the recipe.
Like the Deviled Eggs, it’s been years since I’ve had Twix Ice Cream Bars and when I was at the supermarket a few weeks ago I saw them in the freezer section, double backed, and picked up 2. So good!
I’m heading to the supermarket again today (mask and gloves on, of course!) and hope to pick up another 2. Yum!
That wraps up my May favorites. What are some things you loved this month?
