Summer 2020 non-bookish favourites

Hi pals and gals, happy Friday! Today, I wanted to talk about some of my non-bookish favourites, some things I have been loving this summer that are not books. Obviously I love books, but I also like to talk about other things every once in a while.

Before we get started, there is a GoFundMe for Jacob Blake’s family to help with medical expenses and bills. If you can donate, please consider doing so. There is also a petition to charge the cops who shot him. Please consider signing (and DO NOT DONATE TO CHANGE.ORG PLEASE).

Also, the Toronto cops responsible for Regis Korchinski-Paquet’s death were found not liable. Here is a carrd with information on how you can help get justice for her.

Okay that is all for now. So here are some of the things I’ve been loving this summer.

What I’ve been watching

High School Musical: the Musical: the Series (Disney+): okay listen. Literally everyone I know has roasted me for watching this and trying to get them to watch it. But trust me, it’s so good. It’s so cute and sweet and FUNNY and the music is great. I watched this at a really hard time in my life and definitely latched on to it, BUT I have since rewatched it and it is still great. Please watch it. I promise you won’t regret it.

Glee (Netflix): I don’t know whether I’d say this is a favourite per se, but I have been enjoying watching and roasting it with my sister. It’s just so dumb. But it’s very entertaining, so

Exorbitant amounts of YouTube: other than the two things I just mentioned, the only other thing I’ve been watching is YouTube, so I thought I’d list some of my recent favourite creators and videos that I might not have mentioned before:


I really haven’t done much this summer other than work and watch TikTok, so I don’t have a ton of favourites tbh. But

  • I bought these blue light glasses from Eye Buy Direct and I have been loving them. They’re super comfortable and I think they’re very cute.
  • My sister and I have been expanding our baking abilities, and have loved these pretzels and these scones. Both have been delicious and great breakfasts (the pretzels with peanut butter make a really good breakfast, don’t @ me).
  • I ordered some clothes from Dynamite and they have all fit and been very cute, so thank you to the online shopping gods for blessing me in this way. I bought these pants and they are very cute, would recommend.
  • I also discovered some artists on RedBubble and ordered some of their prints, which I have been anxiously waiting for since I ordered them.

So those are some of my summer favourites! What have you been loving lately? Anything similar to me? Let me know!

  2. Fun post! It’s interesting to read this kind of post on themed blogs as we get to know more about the blogger. I’ve also been watching youtube these days and checked out some of D’angelo’s videos. They’re quite long but he’s one of the more upstanding creators on there, so I like getting to know the latest drama from him. Will check out some of the other channels you mentioned!

  3. I definitely want to rewatch Glee just for the hell of it but I don’t know if I can take the amount of cringe that happened on that show. I feel like I see ENOUGH whenever someone puts up a random Glee scene on Twitter lol. Or whenever someone speculates how Glee would have covered a popular song. I thank the goddess everyday that they never got a chance to do Lemonade.

    I’ve been watching Yhara Zayd too!! I loved those two videos as well as the one she did on the song Cinderella that talked about girl groups of the 2000s!! I can’t wait to see more from her. I love her aesthetic.

    1. Ahhhh there is so much cringe! But I kind of love it tbh. And YES I love seeing what people think Glee would have covered (and I echo your sentiments about Lemonade).

      Oooh I’m so glad you love Yhara too! Her aesthetic is the best thing!
