Back in March, I shared a post about my recent favourite things that were not book related. I enjoyed that post so much that I thought I might make this a series on my blog!
Let me know if you think this is a good idea, because this is primarily a book review blog, but I like talking about other things in my life as well.
Yeah, I’ve gotten into Kpop. I haven’t listened to many bands but I’ve found a lot of new favourite songs and bands. I’m so excited to listen to more so if you have any recs, let me know!
Here are some of my current favourite songs:
2. LISA’s Dances
One of the singers from BlackPink is a rapper named Lisa, who I’m low-key obsessed with right now. She’s beautiful and amazing, and such a great singer. She also has a small series of dances on her YouTube channel called LiliFilm. These dances are fantastic and I kind of want to learn them 😅. But my favourite is definitely:
This is so random, but a couple of months ago, my cousin gave me a bunch of her Drunk Elephant products because she had ordered two of each product and didn’t want that many? So she gave them to me. I am gobsmacked because this brand is super expensive, so she literally gave me almost $500 worth of skincare products for free?
I’m really liking this brand but I don’t think I’d buy it myself. I’m pretty lucky to have good skin and this is definitely a brand for people who have bad skin so it can help clear your skin up. It’s definitely helped my skin feel really clean and healthy, but I can get the same feel from a much cheaper product, like Innisfree or The Body Shop.
That being said, I’m really liking it! I just wouldn’t spend $500 on it.
4. My New Floating Wall Shelf
I finally got a wall shelf, which I’ve been wanting for close to a year now! I finally bought the shelf last month and then my uncle put it up for me (because I couldn’t even figure it out, IKEA sucks lol). But it ended up looking fantastic! I love it so much 😭 I’ve put all my favourite books on this shelf, and I hope I don’t find a new favourite because I won’t be able to fit it haha.
5. Apple Turnover
My mum randomly started making apple turnovers and I’ve become obsessed. I’ve had to stop her from making them now because we were eating too many 😅. Basically it’s puff pastry with cooked apple (and we add whipped cream), and it’s delicious!
6. History 3: Trapped TV Show
I just finished watching this awesome Taiwanese show called HIStory 3: Trapped and I highly recommend it to everyone! It’s so incredible, I can’t get this show out of my head 😭
It’s about a police officer named Meng Shaofei who has become obsessed with taking down a gangster named Tang Yi, after Tang Yi was the sole survivor of a shootout that killed Meng Shaofei’s mentor. But Meng Shaofei and Tang Yi are forced to spend a lot of time together after they both get caught up in a case, and slowly they start to fall in love.
7. The Potter Collector
Earlier in the year, I finished my reread of the Harry Potter series and started randomly searching for Harry Potter fans on YouTube and came across a video about the largest Harry Potter collection in the world. And I thought, yeah right, but then this guy randomly has over 1700 books so …
So I started watching The Potter Collector and he’s really great! He’s just so sweet and nice, and really goes out of his way to help people. He’s also super obsessed with Harry Potter, and I love watching his videos on ultra rare Harry Potter books.
8. Lady Gaga’s New Song
Of course I’m going to add the new Lady Gaga song on this list! This song is phenomenal and I haven’t stopped listening to it 😭 It’s just such a fun song to dance to.
