Korean horrors, Y2K fashion and the return of BROCKHAMPTON tour dates: here are all the things we’re loving.

It goes without saying, but it’s been a wild week. From Riri’s internet-breaking pregnancy announcement to the renewal of Euphoria season three, we’ve been spoiled with all things news. But aside from the entertainment world, we’ve been loving all things wholesome and relatable.

Keeping on scrolling to see what the team have been loving this week…

Watching: Too Hot to Handle
If like me, reality TV is your prefered method of escapism, then I have no doubt that Too Hot to Handle will be the show you are currently binging. With the lust-fuelled reality TV show returning for a third season, we are being treated to the scenes of a fresh batch of horny singles all embroiled in a not so successful attempt to resist their urges and form deeper, more meaningful connections with each other. And from Patrick’s cringe-worthy serenades to Nathan’s deceitful ways, the latest season of the show has had my housemate and I in fits of laughter and gasping over the drama – what more could you want from a reality TV show?!

Listening: Brockhampton
The time has finally come. After literally years of waiting, I will be seeing Brockhampton live! With the ensemble taking to the 02 Academy Brixton for what is set to be one of their final shows before their amicable split, it is fair to say that emotions and vibes will be running rife, and I cannot wait to bask in every glorious second of the show.

Wearing: ALEXCLAIRE
With a concert to attend, it was only fair that I invested in an outfit, right? Well, I landed on ALEXCLAIRE. Providing cute patterned two pieces, printed both digitally and screen, the unique garments grabbed my attention immediately. While I am not usually one for a vibrant print, I am sure that I will be getting a lot of wear out of my Tyche Trousers and Maia Top.

Doing: Miami Nails
When writing all day long, I am constantly looking at my hands, so it is practically essential that they look presentable at all times. Thankfully, I happen to live ten minutes away from my favourite nail salon in the world: Miami Nails Crayford. Unfortunately for you London girlies it is based on the high streets of Kent, but honestly if you’re in need of a decent nail tech, I’d vouch it’s worth the extra commute. Having shown countless images from Pinterest over the past few years, I can confidently say there isn’t a single design they can’t do — and cups of tea and gossip sessions are always in abundance. Now, with the edition of a grey French bulldog puppy to cuddle while you’re getting pampered, I may just be going for infill appointments even more regularly.

Watching: The Woman in the House Across the Street From the Woman in the Window
If there is one thing I love more than horror, it would be good spoofs that rip it to shreds, and as soon as I watched the trailer for TWITHATSFTWITW for Screen Wonders, I knew I’d be binging it as soon as it came out. In true to form, I have already rinsed the eight-episode effort — and feel a lot more satisfied than I did watching its inspiration The Woman In The Window. Full of mind games and dark humour, the series is every bit as addictive and thrilling as any from a horror genre, and I recommend to anyone looking for some easy – albeit slightly gruesome – watching.

Listening: Black Eyed Peas
I’m not sure if it’s the return of the Y2K era or the fact that everyone is rocking Juicy tracksuits again, but I’ve been revealing in all things nostalgic and that includes the Black Eyed Peas. From their ICONIC album Monkey Business to the genre-bending Elephunk era, the group have had me in a chokehold this week and I’m currently digging through my room to find my old iPod Shuffle to relive all those memories.

Watching: All of Us Are Dead
Anyone who knows me, knows I love all things Korean so it was only right that Netflix’s latest horror series All of Us Are Dead made it to this list. Making The Walking Dead look tame, the series takes us through a group of high school students who are trapped in their school as a zombie outbreak takes over their town. With some students going full out Battle Royale and others taking the more Train to Busan approach, the series is full of wild twists and turns that is sure to have you on the edge of your seat.

Wearing: Hoops and Chains
We all have that statement piece of jewellery that we all run to when it comes to an outfit, and right now for me, it’s Hoops and Chains. From their That Bitch necklace to their Y2K-ready gold hoop earrings, I’ve been rocking the brand’s pieces all month with every outfit and loving all the compliments. It’s fair to say, these pieces are having me in my Maddy from Euphoria era.

Eating: Mangal 2 Ocakbasi Restaurant
This family-run restaurant is more than just a casual dining experience. With the menu presenting Anatolian seasonality, free-flowing natural wines and an intimate atmosphere, it is fair to say that there is no better place to spend a Friday night before going out than at Mangal II with your friends. The cooking techniques remain traditional, ensuring that authenticity stays at the forefront of every dish, yet the servings reflect a more modern palate that is receptive to London’s position in the worldly culinary scene.

Wearing: Melt Jewellery
My two new favourite rings come courtesy of the emerging accessories name, Melt. An evolutionary jewellery brand that do things a little differently, shoppers are treated to uniquely chunky and warped cuts that manage to resemble something of an old classic, despite their inventive edge. I don’t plan to take these off for a while!

Listening: Joe James – “Pure Connery
Joe James brings a Bootsy Collins type of smoothness to his music that I don’t think anyone else in the UK is doing right now, something that is most evident in his dynamic set of collaborations with producer, Kwollem. I have had “London Tipton” and “Ghostbusters” on repeat all week long!

Slew – “Pop Music”
I can’t go without mentioning West London rapper on the rise, Slewy. His new single “Pop Music”, which has been stirring up chatter online due to the artist himself dropping teasers regarding the release, has been ringing off in my mind. Dropping at 6PM today, it is not one to miss!
