These are a Few of my Favourite Things- Intro
In recent months I have really wanted to start a monthly feature where I share some of the non-bookish things that I have been loving. I was sort of inspired by the beauty gurus of YouTube who have done their monthly beauty favourites, and than began to share their lifestyle favourites. These are sometimes some of my favourite videos to watch. Especially when the start sharing about their favourite books of the month. I was kind of thrilled when bloggers everywhere started sharing some of their non bookish favourites. I was like I am going to do that.
So, this initial post is to kind of introduce you to some of my favourite things outside of books. I have movies, TV shows, music, beauty products, food, a real hodge podge of things. And in the coming months I'll share some of the things that I have been loving for the month.
I was ten when I first saw this movie and have loved it ever since. I don't know what makes me love it so much. But I do. I could watch this movie over and over again.
This is kind of funny, both of my favourite movies being vampire films. I guess the nineties just knew how to do vampires. Dracula is brought to live by Gary Oldman. And he was brilliant.
This is a show my BFF and I started watching together and still eight years later, we're still both pretty faithful. But look at that man candy. There have been some season that have been wonderful and others that have been not that great (season six, and especially seven).
I started watching this show in March of this year. I devoured all six and a half season in maybe three weeks. I started with season one, watched a couple episodes, jumped to season five, got through those, went back to watch season two-four, and than back to one. I love this show and I am devastated that Matt Smith is leaving.
I have seen these boys in concert four maybe five times. I love(d) them. And I have no shame in admitting that. N'SYNC had nothing on BSB. I giggle thinking about this now. But I was a pretty loyal fan.
City and Colour
Dallas Green once a member of Alexisonfire began a solo career a number of years ago. And I have been a big fan ever since. I am not a terribly musical person. But I get goosebumps every time I see him live. He's SO talented!
I absolutely love beauty products. Makeup, nail polish, skin care. I love it. There is something about it that I love. In saying all this, I am not a girly girl. I don't wear makeup every day. I don't always have my nails painted. But I enjoy it. And I have more nail polish and eyeshadow than is necessary.
