Weekly Favourites #6

#1: TV Show

Thirteen Reasons Why is such an emotional, gripping, and powerful new show. If you haven't heard of it, essentially, it is about a 17-year-old girl named Hannah Baker who commits suicide. Clay Jensen, the boy in the poster above, gets a set of cassette tapes that Hannah created and on each one is a different reason why Hannah decided to take her life. It's a very important show to watch and shows how much one person can effect someone's life. I read the book a few years ago and thought it was pretty good but I loved the ending the most. The show changed a few things and due to a lot of things being left unresolved I believe (I hope) season 2 becomes a thing. I highly recommend you watch it but be aware that there are trigger warnings for violence, self-harm, suicide, and rape. 

#2: Music

÷ (Divide) by Ed Sheeran takes the cake for album of the year and the year's not even over yet! I love every song on this album, no joke. His songs always resonate with me and make me feel so happy. He is a truly talented person, I mean his songwriting and ability to evoke so much emotion in his songs is just incredible. Non-stop been playing this album and I think it's one of my favourites of all time. 

Other songs I've been loving listening to:
The Cure - Lady Gaga
When I'm Alone - Lissie
Stay Gold - First Aid Kit
Crowded Places - BANKS

#3: Books

I am addicted! I just recently started the Royally Series by Emma Chase. I read Royally Screwed and Royally Matched in two days each (4 days altogether). Mind you, they are short books but they are so unputdownable. 

Royally Screwed is about Prince Nicholas Pembrook, Crowned Prince of Wessco, who is incredibly handsome and used to being bowed down to. Then, one snowy night in Manhattan, the prince meets a dark haired beauty, Olivia Hammond, who doesn’t bow down. Instead, she throws a pie in his face. He becomes very intrigued by her and wants to take her out on a date. For waitress Olivia Hammond, dating a prince isn't what she imagined it would be like. There’s a disapproving queen, a wildly inappropriate spare heir, relentless paparazzi, and brutal public scrutiny. But to Olivia―Nicholas is worth it. Nicholas grew up with the whole world watching, and now Marriage Watch is in full force. In the end, Nicholas has to decide who he is and, more importantly, who he wants to be: a King... or the man who gets to love Olivia forever.

 Royally Matched is the sequel to Royally Screwed but it's not a continuation. It follows a different couple but I highly recommend you read Royally Screwed first as the male main characters are related and both are incredibly witty and a bit naughty. 

These were incredible fun and entertaining books. I loved Royally Screwed but I think I love Royally Matched even more because the main girl is a librarian who loves romance books!! ALSO, the (last?) book in this series, Royally Endowed, comes out June 15, 2017. So, if you are intrigued then definitely go read the first two so you can read the last one when it comes out. Highly, highly recommend if you are a sucker for romance and princes like myself. 

#4: Body Care 

Bath and Body Works recently came out with their new French Collection and it was actually on sale (it's on sale for $6.50 until April 23, 2017) so my mom and I got some new products. I love this collection. Every scent smells sooo good. B&BW really stepped up their game because the scents smell so expensive. I got both La Fleur (1) and Rose Champagne (2) in a Body Cream (1) (2) and Fine Fragrance Mist (1) (2). La Fleur smells like you just rolled around in a beautifully smelling garden and Rose Champagne smells like candy, roses, and fizz. I am beyond impressed with the smell and the packaging of these products. I can't wait until the French candles come out! 

I hope you all had a great week and have a great day tomorrow. Keep well and I'll write soon! xx

love xena


  1. Hey Xe. Once again you have wowed me your weekly update. Love, love, love it!! Thanks for introducing me to the new Ed Sheeran album. My favourite is "How would you feel"...aww. As for Lana Del Ray's & the Weekend's " Lust for life"...simply beautiful❤️. Now unto those books. I think up have to visit that bookcase of yours and borrow those new romance books. As usual you always pick the best scents , can't wait to spray those new B&BW scents later. Love ya girl !! 😘😘❤️💕

    1. Hey Geeper! I'm so glad you liked the post AND commented. "How Would You Feel (Paean)" is also my fav Ed Sheeran song. You are welcome to borrow my kindle to read the Royally Series anytime, girlie (as long as I'm not using it). And I KNOW! B&BW new collection is incredible. Love you gigi xx

  2. Wow Xeens, this is a loaded post! Love it. Bath and Body Works is surely stepping things up these days and I love their La Fleur too; it's a lovely and soft feminine scent and I do love my roses. I learned about Ed Sheeran's music just three or so years ago and love a few of his songs. 'How Would You Feel' is my fav too; just a mellow and soothing Sunday-relaxation type track. 'Thirteen Reasons Why' looks heavy but I think has valuable lessons we can all learn from esp with being 'human' with each other and decent esp when we know better. Now those 'Royally' books do tell a bigger true story with regards to title and 'fakeness' versus the quiet, simple and respectful life. Men are natural born hunters and love to chase, not vice-versa which is an instant turn off long-term. 'Hope his character is as hunk-ful as his appearance. haha Love you! xo

    1. Hello Sutz! I looove B&BW La Fleur too! Ed Sheeran anything is the perfect Sunday music. Thirteen Reasons Why is heavy but it is incredible. Honestly, I still think about it even now. Haha you are too funny! They definitely love to chase the girl. Also, he is just as hunk-ful as his appearance lol. Love you xx
