used to have a regular series where each month I’d write about my favourite 3 things I discovered that month and then I’d ask my readers to do the same thing. However people stopped commenting on them (which is totally fine!) so I stopped doing them. I’ve been getting at least an email a week asking for the series to come back so I’m giving it another crack for the next three months. I’m putting a warning out there though – if you love these posts you need to participate in them!
Otherwise it’s just me being all Maria from The Sound of Music Being like ‘These are MY favourite things I don’t care about YOUR favourite things.’ Don’t make me look like a jerk… here are 3 things that are freaking awesome.
A mate of mine brought me back a little pot of Korres lip balm from Greece a few years ago and I’ve been using it carefully and slowly trying to make it last because I know it’s expensive and hard to buy in Australia. I recently discovered that ASOS sell it and last week I stocked up on two more colours. I get compliments every single time I wear this lip balm. It’s the perfect mixture between a balm and a gloss with just enough colour. If you’ve never tried it, you simply must.
A few months ago I decided I needed to have an evening activity to help me wind down at the end of the day so I booked myself into a crochet class. I now take my ball of yarn and crochet hook with me everywhere I go. It’s the perfect activity for someone whose brain races a bit too much. If you’re looking for a place to start there are lots of awesome tutorials online but if you have a yarn store near you that holds classes, book in for one, it makes such a big difference. I’m such a granny now, I love it.
Mad Max Fury Road
My partner had already seen Mad Max but he said it was so good he had to see it again and he was dead right. I have nothing bad to say about this film, it was a hoot from start to finish. It was packed full of amazing Australian talent, it was hilarious and there was some serious kick ass lady representation in there. Fine holiday fun. If you haven’t seen it, do it.
Did you discover anything freaking awesome this month? Care to share in the comments?
