Happy Wednesday! I know it’s a little late, but here are a few things I loved in September:
David Krynauw’s Play Range
A prolific South African furniture designer, that has brought fun, playfulness into designed objects, also creating a feeling of nostalgia, reminding us of our care-free childhood.
Gaga: Five Foot Two
I have been a Lady Gaga fan since she burst onto the music scene in 2008, and with her almost decade long career, comes the Netflix original documentary, ‘Gaga: Five Foot Two’, which shows a side of Gaga that not many see or know about. The documentary follows Gaga through the creation of her album ‘Joanne’, preparation for her history-making Super Bowl Half-time performance, we meet her family, and get to know her personal struggles with love, health and life. The documentary is candid and just incredibly real, with us seeing Gaga at her very best, as well as her bad, lows. Gaga: Five Foot Two is a fantastic insight into Gaga’s life, and she isn’t afraid to get personal and honest. You have to see it!
I’ll Give You The Sun by Jandy Nelson
A book that made me laugh, cry, think and then smile. The story of brother and sister, both figuring out who they are, while falling in love with the wrong people, and doing things they may regret. ‘I’ll Give You The Sun’ is a beautiful novel that teaches us that as beautiful as it is, love is tragic, and that honesty is important, even if it hurts. A book for artists, believers, and those who are willing to give up the world for love.
Tell Me You Love Me by Demi Lovato
Demi did not come to play with her latest album! Striking and powerful vocal performances, honest and uncensored lyrics, all enveloped in great production makes ‘Tell Me You Love Me’ Demi’s very best work to date (in my opinion atleast). Favourites off the album: ‘Tell Me You Love Me’, ‘Lonely’, ‘You Don’t Do It For Me’, ‘Ruin The Friendship’ & ‘Daddy Issues’
