I have decided to start doing monthly non-bookish favourites. I think it is fun to talk about things other than books on this blog every once in awhile, and I figured this was a great way to do it! I will talk about all of the movies, TV shows, music, food, etc I loved during the month.
Captain Marvel was so good! There was so much that I loved about it- the badass lead, the chemistry between Brie Larson and Samual L Jackson, the 90s references, Goose the cat, and more. Her powers are epic and I can not wait to see her in Endgame. The after credits scenes really made me excited for the Avengers. I have not been this hyped for a movie in a long time.
Dead Poets Society
I mentioned last month that I am rewatching House, and I realized that the actor who plays Wilson is in Dead Poets Society. I loved this movie when I was in high school. I remember everyone would say Carpe Diem constantly. Oh man, I forgot how sad this movie is. The acting is phenomenal (duh! It is Robin Williams!) and I love the dynamics between all the characters.
Five Feet Apart
I knew this was going to be an emotional movie.. but wow! I can not remember the last time I went to a movie and people in the theatre were weeping. There was not a dry eye in the ladies washroom after the movie. I just adore Cole Sprouse, and this movie reminded me why.
Queer Eye Season Three
This show just keeps getting better and better. I love every single member of the Fab 5 and they are each so unique. I love watching them interact with one another. They are changing lives and bringing awareness. Truly powerful.
Family Cooking Showdown Season Two
I enjoyed the first season on this show, but I think I prefer the format of season two. It is like Great British Bake Off but not just baking. The challenges are interesting and I love seeing all of the families interact and cheer each other on. Just plain fun!
Baby Please Don’t Stop by Emma Bunton
I was always a Baby Spice girl and to this day Emma Bunton is one of my idols. She is just so radiate and positive. I adore her so much. I also continue to love her music. She released a few new singles and Baby Please Don’t Stop is my favourite. I love her sound and this song has a James Bond vibe to it- which is awesome!
Here in Your Arms by Hellogoodbye
A fellow blogger pointed out that this song was finally available on Canadian Spotify and I squealed from excitement. Here in Your Arms was the soundtrack of my high school life. I listened to it repeatedly, and hearing it now brings me so much nostalgia. It is almost bittersweet!
Animal Crossing Pocket Camp
I have loved Animal Crossing since it came out on Nintendo Game Cube. I was excited to hear that it was being made in to an app and downloaded it the day it released. I was disappointed by it and hadn’t played it since. I decided to check it out again this month, and they have added so many updates to the game. I love it now! It is a fun way to relax for 10 to 15 minutes a day.
BH Cosmetics Palette- Shaaanxo The Remix
I have always really liked Shaaanxo so when I say her palette at Marshalls for $8 I snatched it up. I wasn’t expecting to much from it, but it blew me away. The colour selection is perfect. It has everything that I need- neutrals with pops of fun colours. I think the purple in this palette is my favourite purple that I own. They are always pigmented and longlasting. If you can get your hands on this palette I highly recommend it.
Honey Bunches of Oats Apple and Cinnamon
I know that it is kind of boring to talk about cereal, but trust me- this will be the best cereal you have ever tasted. It is so flavorful and there is something comforting about it. They do not cheap out on the cinnamon either! I am going to go pour myself a bowl right now…

I heard Baby Please Don’t Stop by Emma Bunton on the radio yesterday and I knew it was her but I didn’t realise she’d brought out any new music. I was never really a Spice Girls fan growing up but I always liked her the most and I listened to a lot of her solo stuff. She’s still one of the reasons why I do listen to the odd bit of pop music now and again.
She really goes have a unique and recognizable voice. There is something so special about her. Glad you agree!
Dead Poets Society is really indefensible in a way it glorifies suicide. That is not what young people in particular should be watching.
That’s a perspective I hadn’t considered before. Interesting. I will have to read some more opinions on that one. Thanks!
Well, what kind of a message the film sends out? If one cannot follow a life path one wants, one can just do away with one’s life and make a statement. This way one can become a “hero” in a way. This message is a very dangerous one to send out to the public in many ways. Yes, it is a work of fiction, but it has an effect. And the result is not showing strength, it is showing weakness. Sorry for this negativity, but I just think this also must be said.
No I appreciate hearing your perspective. It has me thinking for sure.
Great to hear that you enjoyed Captain Marvel – I haven’t seen it yet and am a little sceptical… I did see Us and LOVED it! My friends and I were almost dissecting it frame by frame afterwards!
I know there are mixed reviews for Captain Marvel but there was so much about it that I loved. I’m very much intrigued by Us. The premise sounds amazing. Happy you enjoyed it!
I was a hugeeeee Spice Girls fan back in the day and I HAD NO IDEA EMMA BUNTON WAS DOING SOLO MUSIC so this just changed my life, THANK YOU! I need to go listen to this asap and ahhhh I’m SO excited!
Also. I love cereal so I will be trying that one out – thanks for the rec!!!
Yay!! I’m so happy I was the one to introduce you to her music. It’s definitely different from the Spice Girls but you can tell it is her!
YESSS CAPTAIN MARVEL! I’ll admit I didn’t even really want to see it – I don’t know why, it just didn’t appeal to me that much (which is weird because I love Marvel movies) but now I think it’s actually my favorite Marvel movie. It was soooo good. I’m so much more excited for Endgame now.
It is up there for me as well. I definitely didn’t expect to love it as much as I did. So much Endgame hype!
I totally agree with you on this. I ended up loving it much more than I expected. So excited for Endgame now.
I have a countdown. Can’t wait!
I’m hyped for Endgame and I haven’t even seen Captain Marvel.
There are a lot of little Endgame teasers in Captain Marvel. One of my favourite things about!
I loved Captain Marvel! It wasn’t my favourite but it helped explain so much … and I loved an origins focused on a female lead for once and Fury! Carol/Marvel is such a baller!!
It really did explain a lot. Very clever. I agree. It was great to see a woman as a lead. So awesome!
Oh … and on another note … LOVE Queer Eye! That show makes me cry almost every episode though ha-ha! I love all the men but Tan and Antoni are my favourites <3 I'm almost done season three 😀
Captain Marvel was one of my March favorites too.
Ahhh, Dead Poets Society is such a good movie! I really should re-watch it soon!
I also watched Captain Marvel recently and I completely agree that it made me super hyped for Endgame. I’m not really a big fan of the Marvel movies, but I always find myself watching them just so I can discuss it with my friends. We don’t have similar movie tastes (I mostly watch rom-coms lol) and so it’s hard to find something in common to talk about, but with the Marvel movies we can all just gush or rant together and it’s a lot of fun! For Captain Marvel, the consensus was: it’s a fun movie – not as good as Wonder Woman, though – and Goose the Cat is the true star of the cast!
As for Five Feet Apart, I saw a lot of people talking about how emotional it is but I don’t know if it is my cup of tea exactly. It sounds moving, but it gave me Everything, Everything vibes and I really didn’t like that one, so I’m not sure if it will be worth giving it a shot. Nonetheless, I’m glad you’ve enjoyed it so much!
Hope you have an amazing April! 😌
It’s almost like you need to watch the Marvel movies just to know what everyone is talking about. Goose was definitely the star!
For what it’s worth, I very much disliked Everything, Everything (I have only read the book) and really enjoyed Five Feet Apart! I think it’s worth watching if it ends up on Netflix or something in the future!
I just started Queer Eye and I can’t believe I didn’t watch sooner. It’s definitely a favorite of mine, too!
Ah it’s so good! I just want to hug them all.
I had such an “OMG” moment when I read that Wilson from House was in Dead Poet’s Society. No wonder he has always looked so familiar, I just couldn’t pinpoint from where, and I was too lazy to search! I love that movie so much. Also, Here in Your Arms was my jam for years when it came out–I’m now going to listen to it again 🥰
I know! He’s such a great actor. I’m surprised I haven’t seen him in more.
Here in Your Arms is going to bring you so much nostalgia!
I love dead poet’s society (though yeah it is sad!!) And I’m looking forward to captain marvel too 🙂
So sad! I was so impressed by Captain Marvel!
