If you frequently come to my blog then you’ll know I normally share ten of my favourite posts at the end of each month. But, well I just kinda got a little swamped in June. So here’s a selection of posts from July and June that I enjoyed reading;

I’m that kind of person who’s already Googled the plot outline before I get to the cinema and “TV Show Name Spoilers” after enjoying the first episode. But, one film that I managed to do this with and only want to see it more was La La Land. With that in mind, when my blogging buddy Sophie invited me along to see it at Rooftop Cinema Club at the Bussey Building – I was excited.
