A few of my favourite things...


I know that life isn't always sunshine, lollipops and rainbows, but seeing as I made it to 100 likes on my blog's Facebook Page I thought it would be cool to celebrate by rambling about some of my favourite things.  I obviously love my family and my pets, but I thought I would keep it original and talk about other stuff. Pets, family, I love you, And, you are my most favourite things! Here are some others:

1) DOING OTHER PEOPLE'S HAIR:
I love to get out the hair pins and play hairdresser every now and then. I've always found that I am better at doing other peoples hair (even before I got mine cut short) because I could always do it neater on someone else and I could do the back. Whenever I curled my own hair I used to just cheat and "scrunch" the back. I love doing vintage styles and was very happy that my cousin let me try finger waves in her hair for 'The Great Gatsby' movie premiere. A hairdresser that I know who attended said it looked very good, so I must have done an OK job then !

2) LIPSTICK THAT LASTS/FADES SUBTLY
I love the feeling of putting on a good lipstick and knowing that I am not going to have a horrible lip-line effect happening at the end of the day. I don't mind if it fades, so long as it fades all over and I don't  end up with a bright red outline and pale pink lips. So far my lime-crime lipstick is good for the subtle fade. I used to have an Avon lipstick that lasted a long time, but I can't remember what it was called, so I never got it again.

3) ROY ORBISON'S VOICE
I just love the sound of this mans voice. The tone, the notes he hits, the lyrics he sings. His voice takes me to an era that I can only imagine. I'm no expert, I only know a few songs from a compilation album (Something along the  lines of 'The Essential' or 'Greatest Hits', but I really like 'Ooby Dooby', 'Blue Angel', 'Crying', 'Only the Lonely' and 'You Got It'.

4) SHOPPING FOR SUNGLASSES
So, as you would have guessed by previous hauls and a post about my obsession with sunglasses, I thought you might already know this. I've got 7 pairs now and some more coming in the mail. It's kind of insane I know. Notice, how a write that I'm obsessed with sunglasses after the bit where I write about how cool Roy is...

5) RECEIVING/READING A MUCH WANTED BOOK IN THE MAIL
For example when I received the 'Indigo Spell' by Richelle Mead I may have hugged it... I was just so excited to find out what would happen next. I get like that with sequels or novels by awesome authors and I presume I might be like this with the new Sarah Addison Allen book when it is released. eep!

That's it for today, obviously they aren't my only favourite things, but I thought it might be something nice to brighten up everyone's day and for you all (my new readers) to find a little bit more about me and my interests. I hope you enjoy reading.

Your Favourite Blogger,
Natalie

What a delightful list of loves. I so wish we lived nearby - you could do my hair anytime you wanted! :)

I'm with you completely about longwearing lipstick. I so wish they'd finally invent one that really and truly was kiss-proof (a point my husband has bemoaned on many an occasion!).

Yes and one that could be moisturising as well as lasting would be nice :) My younger cousin has long hair but it's notty as. It would be nice to do someones hair who actually looks after it.

I think it would be nice to live near to a few bloggers just to even meet, but most of them live far across the sea...
