FRIDAY FAVOURITES

As you may have seen I’ve been blogging daily… This is because I’m having surgery next week and I’m not sure how long I’ll have a painkiller induced mind for (away with the fairies)

I thought I’d keep writing to I dunno keep myself busy.

So today I thought I’d have a chat about some things that are my all-time favourite things

The Lion, the witch and the wardrobe is my favourite books from my childhood. It was so magical and I’m glad they then made it into The Chronicles of Narnia. Over the last couple of years I discovered the wonderful poet Erin Hanson. So I love flickering through the pages and relate.

These 3 films are a bit old school but I love them and have probably watched them enough to say the whole film word for word.

So random that my favourite food is chippy, sausage, sprouts and chocolate. Obviously not all at the same time.

While searching for a pic of my fave male and female actors there they were stood together and it suddenly dawned on me they were in Mamma Mia together. I think they are bloody wonderful.

My favourite animal did used to be a pig as I was growing up. But over the last 20 years I have loved sheep. I would love one as a pet, but would need a big field for him and then some friends so he didn’t feel lonely 😂

You can kind of guess what my favourite colour is… I wouldn’t say I’m obsessed but I’m half way there.

Hope you’ve enjoyed finding out what makes me happy no matter what.

December Favourites

The last Favourites of the year. I really do like looking at all the previous months as well and see what made me happy.

I’ll leave the previous 11 at the bottom of this post if you want to have a nosey.

Here is some of Decembers bits that have made me happy.

ALIEN PERFUME DEODORANT

I never knew that I could get my favourite perfume in a deodorant/body spray until I was nosing on the perfume shop website and there it was. For 100ml it’s just perfect to fit inside a handbag. Smells beautiful. I am forever getting compliments on the scent, so it’s a no brainer to at least go get a spray of it yourself at your local chemist.

PINK WIG

DC9DB70B-50B5-4642-A61F-B54252E5E1CC

Most of you would’ve seen me wearing a couple of wigs as I’m a bit fed up of the length it is so until it’s a bob style I’ll be wearing one of my 3 wigs. This is the one I love at the moment, it is very me as I love pink.

IPAD COVER

FDEF6163-E86C-48A4-A945-A64DE684B3FA

I have had an iPad for a year or so now, but I now have a pencil I can use to draw on it, a cheaper one than the Apple Pencil so I needed a cover that would keep it with the iPad so this is it. It’s very girly and practical. I love it.

DIARY AND JOURNAL

Collage 2019-12-27 15_33_50.jpg

Both of these are from Paperchase, one was a gift (the 5 mins before bed) and then i bought the pink one (one day one question). I love a diary/journal to write in…it’s just remembering to do it everyday. So these will be in eyeshot so I make them a habit to do.

FOOD

1CAF2832-0AA6-45C4-B028-648ED9BB913B

These have always been the ones I reach for out of all the Haribo sweets. But it’s been about 20 years that I’ve been calling them Tangfantastics until a few days ago I spotted its Tanfastics 🙈

SONG

I heard this song on the radio one evening in bed and thought it was so lovely. The original is of course great but I thought Celine Dions voice was so pure.

BLOGMAS #13

Christmas is the one time of year you can pig out on whatever you want and not feel guilty about it… OK only if you can’t fit into any of your clothes after.

So I was thinking what makes my Christmas when it comes to food.

Out of all the chocolates in celebrations the Malteser has to be my fave. If I’ve been near the tub first you’ll be lucky to see any.

I haven’t always loved mince pies only since I’ve got older. I appreciate a homemade one because someone’s took their time to make it and aren’t mass produced. But then again give me a Mr kipling one any day too. Indecisive me 😂

I am the weirdo in my family who loves sprouts, not just at Christmas, literally anytime. Best vegetable ever.

Sorry to any vegetarians but this makes my Christmas when I see it on my plate. I don’t like the cranberry sauce some have with it, just lashings of gravy.

Pigs in blankets. Yes please. Nothing more needs to be said.

Say cheese… I am a cheeseaholic anyway but love it at my aunties when the cheese board comes out. My eyes light up.

Tried stollen last year and bloody loved it, its just what the best dreams are made of… Dunno what’s in it but it gets a 10 from me.

So there you go some of my favourite foods to tuck into this time of year.

What do you love getting your teeth into?

BLOGMAS #11

Giving back at Christmas.

Me and my mum are so fortunate to have a roof over our head at the most celebrated time of the year.

Also to be lucky enough to have a big ass roast dinner. Some people don’t have any of these luxuries.

So this year we both decided to donate £19 to the Salvation Army so they can feed someone this Christmas day and keep them warm at the same time.

I prefer to give than receive at Christmas so this warmed my heart being charitable.

If you feel like you want to do the same have a nosey on

THE SALVATION ARMY WEBSITE

Do a random act of kindness this December.

BLOGMAS #6

Would you rather with a twist….all the questions are based around Christmas.

ok here goes….

imagesuql8dpst

WOULD YOU RATHER

Be stuck in a elevator with someone who loves Christmas or someone who hates Christmas?

Definitely someone who loves it as I hate a scrooge…it only comes once a year.

Find Olaf in your garden or Jack Frost?

Olaf hands down the dudes a legend.

Eat your own body weight in chocolate or Turkey?

Silly question I am a chocoholic so of course I’d pick chocolate just eat it slowly.

Never receive a Christmas present or Never eat a Christmas meal again?

I would rather give someone a present, nothing warms my heart more than seeing someone’s face light up and love my food too much.

Grow a permanent Santa beard or permanent Antlers?

As much as I dig a beard as impressive as Santas I would prefer Antlers for life, i think i would pull them off better.

Never listen to music again or be forced to listen to Mistletoe and wine 10 times a day?

Oh my I could never do without music and i really don’t like that song. Oooo crap, I think I would have to try and get used to the song and grin and bear it.

and lastly

Untangle 700 Christmas lights or Peel 700 Carrots?

I would pick the 700 lights, i reckon it would be rather therapeutic. I can’t peel a carrot to save my life so would be there for eternity.

October Favourites

October is coming to a close and November is waiting in the wings

I am quite sad October can’t go on for longer it’s my favourite month of the year

Anyways let’s get back to why we are here.

These things brought me joy this month.

PUMA TRAINERS

Mum asked me if there was anything specific that I wanted for my birthday… Well I had seen these on ASOS and said these would be perfect (for when we in England get dry days) so this was what she got me. Normally I don’t get any named trainers but they were pink and they did half sizes so I was happy I could get them.

WATERMELON LOLLY

I think I may have mentioned these before. They are by Rowntree – the people who make fruit pastilles they make these ice lollies too.

They are so bloody yum and I think about 60 calories so don’t worry if you are on a healthy diet these would be a great pick for a treat.

SELF CARE BOOK

I got some books a couple of weeks ago as I need to get my nerd on. I’m a writer, but when it comes to books I need to try concentrate on getting it finished. This one is a self help book and at the mo it’s got 5 stars from me. It’s small enough to fit into a inside coat pocket or a handbag.

BOURJOIS LIP DUO SCULPT

Last month I went in search for a lipstick that was autumn appropriate in its shade and long lasting. The shade is like the colour of my nails. I believe in this range there’s another 2 or 3. Superdrug or boots normally have make up offers so go spoil yourself.

ROCKETMAN ON DVD

This was another thing I had for my birthday, this was from my Sister.

If you haven’t heard of it it’s a story of Elton John’s life. It was quite sad to see what he went through to get to where he is now . It did have Happy moments in it and alot of his music. So if you like films that are like musicals, you’ll love this one.

QUOTE OF THE MONTH

Not much of an explanation needed just some people are worth the second chance and some are not worth your energy.

I hope you have had a lovely October…

Feel free to leave below something that made your month

Til next time

June Favourites

It’s that time again where I wrack my brains to see what I can include in my monthly favourites.

So here we go.

I’ll start with what happened right at the start of the month… I had my hair cut off and I bloody love it

SO…? STRAWBERRIES AND CREAM BODY MIST

I saw this in Boots while browsing at the make up it was situated at the end of the aisle. Smells like a dream and good enough to eat. Nice to put on when you don’t want to put your expensive perfume on.

MILEY CYRUS

Always loved Miley Cyrus even in way back in her Hannah Montana days.

She is coming is her new album. At the there is only 6 on there o Spotify let’s hope she adds some more.

MY LEOPARD PRINT SANDALS

These were accidentally stumbled upon whilst browsing some summer clothes on ASOS. Aren’t they just lovely, they are a little heavy but they are so comfy. Simple but stylish.

REVLON CUSHION LIP TINT

My lips adore this lip tint from Revlon. It goes on more like a matte lipstick and stays on at least 8 hours which I think is fab for a lip tint. Love it so much I’ve purchased another one just incase they sell out 🙈

HUMMOUS

For a while after surgery I lost my appetite a bit. The one thing that got me eating again was hummous. I usually dip cucumber and carrots in. If there’s none of them it’s a packet of crisps. Luckily they also do a 30% less fat so I don’t feel too guilty whilst eating it.

INSHOT

If you are looking for an app that you can edit, make collages on, edit videos and add a bit of music then inshot is it. Of course with most apps there are in app purchases but to be honest you can do so much on here without having to buy anything. Go download it and have a play around.

QUOTE OF THE MONTH

Just love meaningful quotes and this one is perfect.

Thanks for stopping by

Here’s to July

Til next time
