Non-beauty favourites #1

I thought I'd do something a little different this month and share some of my non-beauty related favourites! I post monthly about my beauty favourites and there are so many other things I enjoy so here's a little collection of some recent 'things' I am loving! 

Read: Slimming world magazine - I've been picking up this mag for the last few months and I really enjoy the recipe ideas and often try out a new recipe from the magazine! I also love to read the inspirational stories in the magazine when I'm having one of those days when I feel like I am failing! 

Food: Mini Matchmakers Mint - ironic how this is my second favourite after a slimming world magazine? These are such a delicious little treat and I can't get enough of them! I can sense them being a christmas fave?!

 Fashion: A little while ago I picked up a new purse, it's black with embossed filagree patterns and small silver studs and best of all it was £2 in the Primark sale! It's the perfect size, it's big enough to fit everything it but it is in now way bulky! I often switch up my purses but I've basically stuck to this one for the last couple of months! 

 Youtuber: Recently I've been loving Miss Budget Beauty 's videos! I've been watching Khila's channel for about 2 years now and I still enjoy watching her videos when they pop up in my subscription box. Her reviews are probably one of the most informative and honest when it comes to drugstore beauty products and I often discover new products to try through her videos! I also love her Vlog Channel - definitely worth a watch! 

 App: I can't get enough of Instagram. It's addictive and I go through phases of uploading lots of snaps and browsing through hundreds of pictures. You can follow me here

Candle: I've been loving this mini Seychelles candle from The White Company lately. It's a gorgeous scent combining coconut, amber and vanilla! The candle is also one of the few candles I have used that burns cleanly and despite being a mini candle the burning time is great! 

So, that's it for my non-beauty favourites! Please let me know if you enjoy these posts, and I'll try my best to do them on a regular basis! 



  1. Great post, it's nice to do something different :-) xx

  2. I really want to try matchmakers now, never seen them before but they look so yummy! I love the white company, the candle looks gorgeous! Would make a lovely christmas prezzie. Really like this kind of post, nice to have a little mix up from the sort of usual beauty related favourites/hauls! (even though I do love them :P)
    (new post up on my blog about 'cici lei'- a really amazing project! would mean the world if you'd take a peak :D Thanks!)
