About me

Oh Hey! I'm Alice, I'm twenty three and I'm from Belfast. Welcome to my corner of the internet!
It's the end of 2020! In some ways, this year has flown in but then in some ways it's gone so slowly but in all ways, it's been a bit of a weird one. I started the year as a uni student and ended it a graduate. We started it with large gatherings and ended it in quarantine, all in all, it's been a funny one. One thing that has been constant though is my love of media so I thought it would be fun to share some of my faves from the year so I've compiled a little list of my favourite books, tv shows and songs from the year as a fun little recap. I've done a cuople of favourites posts this year (two to be exact) but I always love to read these kinds of posts. I'd also love to know what things were keeping you sane while we were stuck inside so make sure to leave your faves in the comment section below!
