August Favourites

It seems the year is going too quickly. Cannot believe that it is September already, however I am looking forward to cosy jumper wearing weather! Here are my monthly favourites for August.

 

Clothing

I have been awful summer shopper once again and haven’t brought any summer clothing this month. I am very limited in clothing that doesn’t boil me alive! I have however been getting some use out of my swimmers. Living near the beach I can go for a swim in the sea and instantly cool down.

 

TV Series

We currently have Netflix and have just bulked watched ‘The OA’  I cannot wait till the next series comes out. I adore any programmes that explore time/alternative realities so this show is so interesting. Plus going down the rabbit hole of reading all the fan theories just adds to the enjoyment. I would definitely recommend this series to anyone that likes strange thrillers.

Movies 

Image result for anthropoid

War films are not my cup of tea in the slightest. It was however my partners film choice so we went with this, ‘Anthropoid’. I was surprised with how good this film was, I think it also helped that I didn’t know how this true story turned out, so it was a real thriller for me. Cillian Murphy is a fantastic actor  and this lead me to watch ‘Disco Pigs’ which features a young Cillian Murphy in one of his first films. A film I will also add to this months favourites.

Well this is a bit of a strange one. A 200 year old fossilised cow femur! A person had the bone ID at the museum I work at and when she found out it was just a cows leg she said to chuck it away. It’s felt weird to just put it in the bin and so old too! It now has place alongside my other oddities, which include a birds leg, snake skin, kingfisher pellets and huge selection of bird feathers. (Everything is ethically sourced). I will be on the look out for a glass case which I place the bone inside along with a tag, which will read ‘Human Femur’ just to freak out the visitors.
