Non-Beauty Favourites

Every month I try to share my favourite beauty products with you, but I thought that it'd also be fun to share my non-beauty favourites too! You all know that I love beauty, but this is a way for you to get to know me a bit better. Let's hop right in!

First things first, Taylor Swift's new CD, 1989, released yesterday, and of course I had to pick up a copy right away. This is Taylor's first all-pop album, and I'm absolutely loving it! She's great at country, but I'm personally really happy to see her transitioning fully into pop.

Scandal is back for season 4, and I couldn't be more excited about it. Olivia Pope is back in action, looking fiercer than ever. If you haven't watched Scandal yet, then I'd highly recommend giving it a shot. I will warn you that the first few episodes of the series are a bit slow, but after that it gets really, really good!

My latest snack addiction has been to Popcorn, Indiana's Chocolate Peanut Butter Drizzlecorn. This is essentially popcorn with chocolate and peanut butter drizzled all over it. This popcorn tastes like kettlecorn, with a sweet and salty kick. This stuff is seriously good!

I don't know why it took me so long to discover Sam Smith, but now I'm just addicted. Leave Your Lover, I'm Not the Only One, Stay With Me, Restart.... there are so many great songs. I actually just bought his CD, In the Lonely Hour, yesterday when I was picking up T Swift's 1989 at HMV. I haven't had a chance to listen to it yet, but I'm really excited!

My Candy Crush app stopped working a few weeks ago, and I've been too scared to delete it & re-download it, since I don't want to risk loosing all of my progress. My life is hard, I know... So in the meantime, I've been playing Mahjong Solitaire. This is no Candy Crush, but it's addicting enough, and makes my bus rides to and from work go by a lot quicker.

This article about a Chinese girl spending an entire week inside a KFC after breaking up with her boyfriend. That's all I'm going to say about that. Go read the article for yourself.

This list of super adorable cat Halloween costumes. My cats would absolutely hate me if I tried to dress them up, but it might be worth the risk...

  3. The story of that KFC girl is so sad, gosh didn't she have someone she can go talk to? T.T

  4. LOOOL my brother told me about the KFC story the other day. I don't know too much about it, but I'm off to read it now. "Lay Me Down" is a personal fav from Sam Smith and I'm pissed at myself for not getting concert tickets (but TO BE FAIR, THEY WERE GONE PRETTY QUICKLY)

    1. Lol the story is kind of ridiculous!
      I just realized Sam Smith is coming to MTL... and there are still tickets available! I'm off to start planning a MTL weekend!

  5. I just started watching Scandal and I am totally hooked! I am almost done season 3!

  6. Such a clean post and loved style of your writing. I need to watch this series to be hooked I guess :)

  7. That kitty costume is absolutely adorable!!

  8. I've had TSwift's cd playing on repeat these last few days - it's so good!
