July Favourites | Matti May Hardie

Hey all, hows you?

It’s that time of the month again where I let you guys know what I’ve been enjoying this month.

This is something I’ve only recently come across but I’m so glad I have! What you do is you put your lipstick on and them you put the lip-coat on over it and it makes it stay 10 x longer. You can drink, you can kiss, you can talk ect, and the lipstick won’t come off. However, when you apply it, while drying, there’s a certain burning sensation. Don’t worry, it’s normal. It’s because it’s a base of alchol so don’t panic. Though you can’t do anything with your lips while it’s drying, it doesn’t take too long.

Pitch Perfect



This film is about a girl called Beca, who is an aspiring DJ forced to go to college by her dad and what happens when she is… let’s call it forcefully persuaded to join her college’s all-female accapella group, the Barden Bellas. It’s really funny and just one of those films that I could watch over and over and still think to myself after “That was a great film.” If you like music and comedy, this is a film for you! (Just like in the advert, jokes)

The Breakfast Club



Next is a film that is often referenced by a friend of Becca’s in Pitch Perfect called “The Breakfast Club”. I literally watched it for the first time last night and when it was finished I restarted it. It was that good. It’s about 5 students from totally different social groups – an athlete, a nerd, a princess, a basket case and a criminal – who are all in detention all day one Saturday. At first they can’t stand each other but in the end, it’s completely the opposite. I promise you, it is one of the funniest films I have EVER watched. EVER. The acting is brilliant, the script is witty and it’s joke after joke, I’m absolutely sold. I could only find one problem, it’s that I didn’t get why they called themselves “The Breakfast Club” there was no reference to breakfast or any meals mind you apart from when they’re eating lunch. Feel free to explain in the comments.

The Mortal Instruments: City Of Bones



… Well… where the fuck am I meant to start on explaining this! It’s set in contemporary New York City where a girl, Clary Fray, a seemingly normal teenager, discovers she is the descendant of a line of Shadowhunters, a secret “breed” of young half-angel warriors locked in an ancient battle to protect our world from demons. After the disappearance of her mother, Clary joins forces with a group of Shadowhunters who live at “the Insitute”, (a building that looks like a dump from the human eye, but from a Shadowhunter’s eye, is a palace) who introduce her to a dangerous alternate New York called Downworld, filled with demons, warlocks, vampires, werewolves and othe deadly creatures.




This sounds like a really random name but it’s a really cool band. It’s sort of a rocky/reggae sound and I’m really loving their new album, “Don’t Kill The Magic!”. You’ve probably heard their song ‘Rude’ which has gone viral over the summer.
