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!

Your response to the Lush hair products -post and the zero-waste one! I was so happy to have so many comments from you guys!

Listening to the new album by Corinne Bailey Rae ‘The Heart Speaks In Whispers’. I am in love! I could just keep listening to this album over and over again! It is kind of blues with lovely melody, voice and lyrics. It makes you relaxed and to enjoy life at the same time.

This youtube video! It is by Amber Danielle Walter and it was the first video I’ve seen from her. She talks with such enthusiasm about helping other people and how it makes her feel so good, it really was inspiring and heartwarming. I encourage to have a look!

My beautiful pastel roses, I got from my boyfriend, have been cheering me up throughout the week!

My lovely cat who has been extra cuddly and attention seeking this week. Here I was trying to take pictures, but she decided it was her time (btw she usually doesn’t like being in front of the camera). She is really into roses, though, apparently, cute!

I read about this amazing invention! Edible beer rings! And before you think it is food made out of beer, wait a second. If you have watched HIMYM or just generally read the news.. or facebook, you are most likely familiar with the plastic beer rings in which beer cans come in. These most often end up in the sea and pollute the marine water and harm the marine life. But now Saltwater brewery has come up with beer rings, that are edible by the marine life, they are biodegradable and so can’t harm the marine life. How amazing is that! I think all beer companies should take this policy, right now!! Read more about it here.
