May Favourites - Me Before You, Yankee Candle and Spotlight...

This month's favourites includes a lot of things TV and film related! but there has been so much this month I wanted to mention and I've managed to get it down to just a few.
Me Before You Images, Spotlight, The Secret.
Spotlight - I hadn't even heard of this film until a few weeks ago when George suggested it, i'm so glad we watched it because it was so intense and one you can really get into. It's a true story about how the Boston Globe did an investigation into cases of widespread child abuse in the Boston area by numerous catholic priests. It was shocking to watch and learn about all these things that went on that people knew about and covered up for so long, the acting was amazing by Mark Ruffalo, Michael Keaton and Rachel McAdams. I definitely recommend watching it if you haven't. 

The Secret - We got hooked on this a few weeks ago, there was only a few episodes but there was so much going on and every week just got better and better. It was about the murders carried out by Colin Howell and Hazel Buchanan of their partners to cover up their affair, it was a true story and so shocking to watch and know that it all actually happened. I love a good drama like this that you can really look forward to every week as it's so good and it makes it even more intriguing when you know its a true story. 

Lemon Drizzle Cake - I'll be putting a recipe up for this soon as it is is just so good! I made it a few weeks ago and we just loved it so I made it again last weekend when we had some family round and they also loved it which I was so pleased about! I even passed the recipe on so it must have been good. It's such a simple recipe and takes no time at all so a great one to make if people are coming round or you just want some cake that doesn't take too long to make. I find when I make something like chocolate cake there are so many steps to it and it takes me so much time, especially with toppings and everything, but with this I put it all in a bowl and mix with an electric mixer and bake. So nice, especially with an icing sugar topping. 

Me Before You - I had to mention this in my favourites even thought technically it came out on the third of June and we saw it on the 4th but I couldn't wait to mention it, I was so excited to see it and it didn't disappoint! I read the book ages ago so I knew the story and what was going to happen but as it was so long ago I had forgot about a few of the characters and a few things that happened so it was really nice to watch it without knowing everything about it. It is literally heart breaking, it's so sad, it can make you laugh and cry, and I cried a lot. I was sat sobbing at the end, I didn't think I was going to stop, it's a great one to go and see with your partner or a few friends, couldn't recommend it enough. 

Yankee Candle Summer Peach - I absolutely love this scent! I picked a small one up from Clintons a few weeks ago and it just smells amazing, Peach is my favourite ever scent so I was so happy to see this as i'd never seen it before, I also picked up a new candle holder that matches the living room which I also love, I just get obsessed with anything to do with candles, I could buy them all the time.

What have you been loving this month?
