It has taken me a while to write about my February round-up mainly because so much started to happen at the start of March I sort of lost track of time. I thought about not doing this type of post for February but I feel like we could all do with some recommendations to distract ourselves from our current reality.
For Podcasts, I discovered some new (to me) podcast that I have been loving. First Fashion No Filter which is hosted by fashion journalists Camille Charriere and Monica Ainley. The podcast takes a deep dive into the world of fashion, the women interview some of the biggest names in the industry to give the listener a unique peek into behind the scenes of the fashion industry. I found this podcast through Danish content creator Pernille Teisbaek as she was recently interviewed by the hosts during Copenhagen fashion week. If you are interested in fashion then I would highly recommend this podcast, it is a great listen.
Bandwagons was recommended to me last month and it fast became a new favourite. It is hosted by two Irish gals and the focus of the podcast is on popular culture and the idea of ‘hopping on the bandwagon’. It is hilarious and lighthearted with a side of Irish banter.
For TV, I was no different than the rest of the world it seemed and binged Love is Blind on Netflix. It is a wild show! If you haven’t seen it yet and you enjoy trashy reality TV then I would highly recommend.
Drive to Survive was another show I binged. This one took me by surprise. My boyfriend started the second season when it came out and I was just sitting on my laptop not paying much attention. I would say 15 minutes into the first episode I was hooked. Who knew behind the scenes of Formula1 would be so interesting. Honestly, I would highly recommend checking this show out. There are two seasons the first follows the 2018 season and the second follows 2019 so plenty to binge-watch.
For Reading, I didn’t have the time to get much done if I’m honest. But I did manage to finish American Dirt by Jeanine Cummins. While I enjoyed the book I did find the storyline dragged on in places which made it hard to get into it.
For Fitness, towards the end of the month, I started Sarah’s Day first ebook Sweat It to Shred It which is an eight-week active lifestyle challenge which is broken up into workouts called Sweaty Shredders (very very sweaty), Toning Powers and challenge days. The workouts are quite tough, it is definitely not a workout I would recommend for those starting out. However, if you are looking for a challenge with some good sweaty workouts that you can do at home then I would highly recommend.
For Cafes & Restaurants- While I know we cannot go out as we normally would I still want to include to three new places I tried last month because I really liked them and would return once everything is safe to open again.
Grano Italian, located in Stoneybatter is this homey Italian Resturant where they make the pasta fresh everyday. The food here was so delicious & I would highly recommend this spot for a cute date night.
One Society, a cool cafe located just a short walk from O’Connell street. I brought my mom and sister here for Brunch and coffee and it was a hit.
Proper Order Coffee, located in Smithfield I popped in here after a visit to the National history museum. The coffee here was amazing, I spent an hour just sitting reading my book.
That was it from me in Febuary, hopefully, you might have found something new to help distract you through this time. Stay Safe 🙂
