Friday Favourites #14

Happy Friday My Lovelies!

This week I have been super busy working (so I can earn some pennies!) and doing Uni work. Stress. So I do apologise for neglecting my blog this week - hopefully I'll bring you some more exciting posts next week!

First on my list of Friday Favourites for this week is....the Winter Olympics of course! I have been watching it at every spare moment I get! I have been loving the Figure Skating (obviously) and the Snowboarding. Although watching it does make me so envious that I am not as talented as these amazing Athletes. I love sport and was always so sporty as a child...but it kind of wore off as my studies began to take over my life. Perhaps when I finish University I can get back into it - maybe even become a Top Figure Skater in time for the next Winter Olympics. A girl can dream, right? And don't forget, today is Torvill & Deans Anniversary - 30 years ago today they won Olympic Gold!

The next two are another of my new favourite songs. I feel I may just have to start doing a seperate music post every now and again to summerise my favourites as music is popping up a lot recently. Anyway, I have always been a fan of Bombay Bicycle Club and I know their track Luna has been out for a while now but I am absolutely loving it. It is definitely my favourite of their tracks so far - and the video makes me want to go swimming! Another great track is American Authors - Best Day of My Life. This was on an advert right? I can't remember which one but I have been hearing this a lot on Radio1 recently - aka the source of all amazing music - and it's another great, feel good tune! I have added both of the YouTube videos for these tracks below. Let me know what you all think :)

Outnumbered has always been a complete favourite of mine and the recent series on BBC Two is as funny as always! I still can't get over how much Karen has changed! But Ben is still as witty (and slightly odd) as usual and the whole crazy family storylines are so realistic and have me in stitches. I think this is a programme everyone can appreciate and if you haven't seen it yet, catch up on BBC iPlayer - and get all the other series on DVD (as I think the earlier series are the funniest!)

Okay so just one more song - goodness I am treating you all this week. I heard this song for the first time this morning on Radio1 and it's so great that I couldn't possibly wait until next weeks Friday Favourites to share it with you all! So my last one for this week is Recover by Chvrches - It's one of those songs that I loved it immediately. I can't tell you why, because I don't know why. I just love it. What do you guys think?

I hope you have enjoyed my extremely lengthy Friday Favourites this week. Let me know what you think of my three favourite songs & please do tell me what you can't stop listening to recently. I love stumbling across new tracks!
