Favourite things: Crazy Ex Girlfriend, my weekday soundtrack and pretty dresses

1. Binge watching Crazy Ex Girlfriend

Crazy Ex Girlfriend

If you haven’t seen any of Crazy Ex Girlfriend yet, load up Netflix right now, grab some snacks and get watching. Two great seasons of hilarious songs, great characters and real issues.

2. Currently listening to…

The soundtrack to my weekdays is currently the great new album from Jens Lekman, Life Will See You Now and the La La Land motion picture soundtrack which makes me want to dance through the day.

3. I left my heart in New York…

I’m in love with this gorgeous dress from Joanie Clothing. There are pages and pages of really pretty dresses on their site and what’s great is that they are available in plus sizes too. Yay!

Musical comedy

Last night my boyfriend and I went to see the lovely Isy Suttie (aka Dobby from Peep Show) perform at Nottingham Playhouse.

When I discovered that her show, Love Lost In The British Retail Industry, was a musical love story set in a supermarket in Matlock Bath (one of my favourite places), I just had to book tickets. It also helps that the Playhouse is one of my favourite theatre’s (for many, many reasons).

The synopsis seemed far too good to be true  but I have to say that the show lived up to expectations. Isy Suttie is wonderfully charming and genuinely funny keeping the audience smiling and laughing throughout the intro stand up and the storytelling section. Her musical comedy stylings are reminiscent of Flight of the Conchords and the show included a brilliant (sort-of) love song set in IKEA.

If you like your comedy twee and musical – you’ll love Isy Suttie. Overall, it made for a wonderful evening. More please!
