Happy Favourites of the Week – Chat and Nap

The Beauty Myth – The feminist book about how women are controlled with beauty. It is not news, but still, a very interesting book as it digs deep into the issues.

Get off Facebook Now – I am one of those people who really doesn’t like facebook. I talk about it pretty openly and the answer I get in return is “Oh, you are one of those people” as though there was something wrong with it. The way Facebook has developed doesn’t bring me joy anymore and it is amazing to see that there is a growing network of people who see Facebook as what it is! If you don’t know what it is, then definitely read the article!

Ekaterina: The Rise of Catherine The Great – I am quite fascinated by the Russian history and this is a tv-show on Amazon prime that tells the story about how a young but determined German girl became one of the most celebrated emperors in the Russian history. And it is a story about a powerful woman! It is filmed in multiple languages so you will need to watch it with subtitles, but I found it to be more authentic.

Doisy and Dam Date and Himalayan Salt Chocolate – This chocolate is so delicious! I don’t seem to be the only one who thinks it’s delicious, it is always out of stock in shops!

A Concise Chinese-English Dictionary for Lovers – This was such a beautiful book on cultural differences, especially when considering the relationship between a man and a woman. It is a love story, a story about cultural conflicts and misunderstandings, sexual awakening and becoming independent. I would definitely recommend this book to everybody!

A Nap In the Middle Of The Day Under The Sunlight – I love naps, but rarely have time for them with my busy schedule. And naps while the sun is shining sound almost criminal when everybody else is going out to soak up all the energy they can from the rare phenomenon (rare at least in Scotland). But one day I wasn’t feeling well and went to my bed in the middle of the day to take a short nap before going to work. I woke up energised, warmed up from the sunlight in the room and immensely satisfied and happy!

A Chat With And Old Lecturer – I rarely get to talk with my old teachers without disruptions or what is going on in our lives, partly because I still hold them as authority figures in my life, although I left University a couple years ago. Our chat was short but honest and friendly, leaving me uplifted.

Happy Favourites of the Week – New Things For Winter

New trinket – Although I am trying to be more sustainable, I am not really a minimalist. If I really want something and know I will have it for long or for the rest of my life I will get it. I am not one to get rid of homeware items when I get bored of them, but rather cherish each item or pass it along to a next person who can cherish it. That could be the reason for why I don’t shop homeware a lot. Buying new trinkets is actually a thing I don’t really do. But for some time now I have been looking for a Buddha’s head. I finally found one the size and shaper that I liked after searching for it for 3 years. And you know, it really does bring me joy every single time I see it under our beautiful flamingo plant!

Murder On The Orient Express – I’ve been waiting for this movie for a long time and now finally it was in the cinemas so we could go and see it, and I loved it. It was beautifully done, Kenneth Branagh was absolutely brilliant and the plot was intriguing. I haven’t seen any of the previous versions of this movie or any other Hercule Poirot movies or read them, but am now really eager to do so!

Cranberry and Orange candle – While getting some Christmas presents I ordered myself a couple of soy wax candles and I absolutely fell in love with the cranberry and orange scent. These candles are made by Rainflower and this one smells like the most comforting tea which is just slightly sweetened. So lovely!!

Why I’m Not Buying The New iPhone X – There are many reasons why I wouldn’t buy the new iPhone X, or any other iPhones, but Kirsten Leo takes a sustainable and humanitarian view on why she wouldn’t buy one and explains it excellently! We should all take a second before buying new technology!

Celebrities Read Mean Tweets #11 – This was the first time I saw this Jimmy Kimmel segment and couldn’t stop laughing. It is really funny, although quite rude as well, still, it made my midday much more amusing!

New slouchy rollneck jumper – I very rarely buy clothes, so when I do I know I will get a lot of wear out of them. The slouchy rollneck jumper had been on my list for nearly two years and suddenly this week I grabbed it at the store and didn’t let go. It is the softest and the warmest jumper ever and will probably worn way too much in the cold days of this winter!

Doisy & Dam chocolates – These little packs of chocolate, although are tiny are absolutely delicious!
