It’s June! Pride Month! I saw my favourite drag queen Trixie Mattel last week and I’m still thinking about it! A new season of Queer Eye came out yesterday! Much is happening! To celebrate this month, I want to recommend some of my favourite LGBTQ+ films. From important documentaries that will educate you on the trailblazers who sparked the gay rights movement, to iconic cinema which casted a mainstream spotlight on an underground culture, to modern teen rom-coms, here’s some essential viewing to chill out to between pride marches and drag shows.

It took three separate attempts for me to nail down the main image for this post. I kept getting the lighting wrong, every move I made when editing the previous tries looked over done, and then I considered throwing my hands up at the whole thing and perhaps, god forbid, not posting. Nevertheless, I persisted, and if that isn’t reflective of May than I don’t know what is. May brought us the pointy end of the semester, chock full of deadlines, assignments and internships. But May also gave me a bunch of new favourites to talk about, from makeup to music, television and more, and so as stressful as they are, I love these kind of months.

Anyone else make a list of fun/productive things you want to do when you’ll have the time to help get you through those final weeks of the semester? Because I sure do. From projects I want to finally get off the ground, to books I’m dying to get into, shows I want to binge, to just little things I haven’t had time for, here’s a list of things I want to do during my mid semester break!

I feel like a lot of people would say the secret to taking Instagram-worthy travel photos is to step 1) take a photo and step 2) upload it to Instagram, et voilà! But for those of us who want to up our Insta game, there’s a little bit more to it. However in our endless endeavour to capture the perfect ‘gram, I feel like you can kind of lose the moment. Whether you’re taking too long to photograph your food or you’re holding up the group because your shot of a landmark just isn’t working, I think the secret to getting the perfect gram is to take a step back, take a shot, and deal with it later, so you can get back to enjoying wherever in the world you’re in. My Instagram is far from the pinnacle of greatness (see Polabur’s drool-worthy, superhuman, ‘how the heck!?‘ feed) but after travelling through Italy and to Paris and London earlier this year, I learnt a bunch of helpful things that I’d pass on to fellow travellers and Instagram lovers alike.

Even though it’s a regular Tuesday in Australia, across the world in New York City it’s the first Monday of May, marking the biggest event on the fashion calendar – the Met Gala. Some of the most famous faces from fashion, film, music and art have come together at the Metropolitan Museum of Art to raise money for the Met’s Costume Institute. In celebration of the grand opening of its latest exhibition, this year’s red carpet theme was Heavenly Bodies: Fashion and the Catholic Imagination. In previous years, the red carpet has been lacklustre. Patron saint Rihanna usually carries the show and is sometimes one of the only celebrities to properly dress to the themes. But my hoping and praying paid off, because this year we were finally blessed with some gorgeous, heavenly fashion moments.

No offence to April, but never has a month moved so slowly. My calendar was chock full of events, from celebrating the Easter holidays to a two week intensive university prac assessment to just making long over due plans and catching up with friends. But my god am I struggling to understand how those 30 days wasn’t 300. Luckily, a busy month also brings a whole new batch of favourites. From 80s cult classics to makeup brushes, to beachside sporting venues and concert arenas, April had a little bit of everything.

Besides the little souvenirs I bought myself when overseas, it’s actually been such a long time since I’ve done a decent makeup haul? Good on me. Recently I loosened the purse strings and found myself finally placing another Colourpop order. While I feel like they need to slow down in the eyeshadow department and stop releasing a new one every week, the driving force behind this haul was those stunning matte lipsticks they’ve released in a million colours for a ridiculously affordable price. Since my order arrived a week or so ago I’ve had some time to play around with things, so I hope you enjoy this haul and mini review post!
