As the month comes to an end (can you believe that it's already the end of April?) I want to talk about some things that I discovered over the last 4 weeks.
Game of Thrones - What can I say about this? Obviously I didn't discover this during the last 4 weeks, I just never felt the urge to find out what all the fuss is about...until now. If you know anything about me, you'll think "Laura's watching Game of Thrones? Is this a case of outta space body snatchers or something?”. But no, I wasn't abducted, I'm perfectly fine, I just wanted to widen my TV horizon. The main reason being that pretty much every celebrity I follow on Twitter was going crazy about it, and rightfully so. The show is well made, entertaining, fresh...
...Yet I didn't make it past the 5th episode.
It is without a doubt one of the best shows I've ever seen, but also the most off-putting one - I can handle extreme violence just as well as sex - but the combination was simply too much for me (and knowing my taste in movies that says a lot). But I'm nevertheless very glad that I gave it a chance.
The Orphan's Arms - I discovered this brand while browsing on ASOS, and immediately fell in love with their designs. Their sweaters remind me a lot of Wildfox, and as much as I adore my Wildfox, it's nice to have a cheaper but equally cute lounge wear alternative.
The comfy sweaters and shirts, run in a more wallet friendly price range (between 30 and 60 Euros on Asos), but can definitely compete with Wildfox in quality and style, and I might even say that I prefer their fit just a little bit.
Tabata - I discovered this one last night. Sherlock's Lara Pulver mentioned this form of circuit training in a recent interview. The actress used the intense work out to get in shape for her nude scenes on the show - and intense it is! But it's also quick and easy. I downloaded a Tabata Timer app, set my alarm clock, and started my day with Tabata (it's also fun to say, the new yogalates maybe?) …and I think I have found a new favorite workout.
...But I also have to mention that it's gonna take a while to get used to it. After 4 sets I felt pretty much dead, and basically took a nap on my yoga mat before I was ready for anything else.
So is there anything you discovered in April? Let me know, comment below!
Peace, Love and Sunshine
