Bethan loves: 5 things I love right now

So me being the stupidly nosey person I am, I'm always intrigued to what people are currently watching, reading, listening to etc. Mostly because it gives me inspiration and new things to explore. So for people nosey like me, I thought I would start a new feature on my little blog about things what I currently love and my favourite things right now. Go ahead and check them out too!

I Choose Birmingham

I signed up to the 'I Choose Birmingham' weekly email around two years ago, but have fallen in love with it all over again recently. A few weeks ago I was fortunate enough to interview the creator of it, Tom Cullen, and promised myself that I would read it properly from now on. The newsletter is a sort of round up of all the great things happening in Birmingham. Not only does it offer reviews of restaurants and bars, there are also features and news of what is coming to the city. It falls into my inbox every Thursday and makes a great read on my commute to work. If you're looking to discover a different side of Birmingham, I'd highly recommend signing up with them.

Women of The Hour Podcast 

I only discovered this podcast last week and have since been spending train journeys listening to it. The shows aren't too long and focus on women who are top of their game in their careers and they discuss everything from work to relationships. I like Lena Dunham anyway, so it helps, but she is so refreshing to listen to because she's just so honest! In a way, I feel like if I was to do a podcast, it would sound something like this. It's also pretty funny and contains lots of personal experiences and stories which make it a really enjoyable listen.

List for Life 

I'm not sure what my obsession is with this site, but I just love it! It's basically a huge amount of articles to feast your eyes upon, which is pretty much made for people in my age range. Best thing is that, like the title hints, everything is listed. Not only do I just love lists, having everything numbered makes them really easy reads and perfect if you're in a rush and don't want to read anything too long and detailed. The lists contain everything from meal suggestions to career tips and they're so, so good and gives me major inspiration. I'm also signed up to the newsletter, which unlike some sites, doesn't bombard you with information, so it's a win win situation! If you're as obsessed with lists and articles as much as me, you'll probably love this site as much as I do.

Amy Soundtrack

Admittedly, despite classing myself as a big Amy Winehouse fan, I only watched the Amy documentary film last month, but I just adored it. Obviously, I cried my eyes out and loved how it was a real true insight into her life, but I couldn't get over how many songs were featured that I wouldn't come across without the film. I've actually found that this soundtrack is the best thing to listen to at work (sometimes I put my headphones in to really focus) as it's a good mix of original versions of songs to just beautiful instrumental music so it's a really easy listen.

ASOS Wedding Shop

Over the past few weeks, I've been eyeing up what I want to purchase on pay day for my mom's wedding. ASOS's wedding guest selection has been there for me since day one! The section covers everything from dresses to accessories and shoes and has given me some major inspiration for the day itself. I'll definitely be making a few purchases from this on pay day and can't recommend it enough if you're in a bit of a rut on what to wear to a wedding this year.
