May & June Favorites

My favorites from the months of May and June!

Fashion & Accessiores
Universal Thread Romper (sold out, similar here & here)

Movies & Television
Won't You Be My Neighbor - This needs to win best documentary at the Oscar's! I grew up watching Mr. Rogers Neighborhood so the nostalgia this docu gave me literally had me tearing up in the theater.  *Confession time* I sometimes sing "Its A Beautiful Day In The Neighborhood" when I get home from work and I'm changing into my lounge wear 😆. 

Westworld Season 2 - I love this complex and hard to love show. Season 2 was a whirl wind of events that answered a lot of questions from season one. I thought Jeffery Wright, who plays Bernard, was the stand out star for season 2, I would argue that the whole season was mostly built around his performance. Thandie Newton, James Marsden and Ed Harris were also major highlights for me. I love the level of detail that show-runners Lisa Joy and Jonathan Nolan put into the show. For those who like shows that require a little homework and research, Westworld is for you. My favorite episodes from this season  were The Riddle of the Sphinx, Kiksuya, and The Passenger. 

Glow Season 2 - A delight of a show thats so easy to binge, after you finish it, all you want is more. Allison Brie is her usual amazing self, she is just so likable and does a great job leading the show. I love that the show took time to let us get to better know some of the ladies of GLOW. I especially loved the back story of Kia Stevens character Tamme, the episode "Mother of All Matches" did an amazing job of showing the complicated emotions that Tamme had playing such a stereotypical image of a "welfare queen". Chris Howell as Bash, was another highlight for me I loved every moment he was on screen. I like to be invested in the characters of a show, Glow does such an amazing job of making me care so much about the characters. 

Janelle Monae - Dirty Computer - Dirty Computer is Janelle Monae's third studio album. I love that Monae is such a unique artist who is not afraid to take risk and be super different. My favorite songs from the album are Pynk, Take A Byte, Make Me Feel and I Got The Juice. 

Troye Sivan - Bloom - I've loved Troye Sivan for a long time now. His new single, Bloom, from his upcoming album has been my obsession for weeks. Sivan has such an amazing voice and his music always puts me in a mood of delight.  

Backstreet Boys - Don't Go Breaking My Heart - Backstreet's back alright! I'm loving this new single from the Backstreet Boys, its amazing how the group is still together and making great music. 

Cosmo's Midnight - What Comes Next - Cosmo's Midnight is an Australian music duo consisting of twins Cosmo and Patrick. What Comes Next is the first studio album from the duo, my favorite songs from the album are Lowkey, Polarised, Get To Know and History.
