Whilst chilling out in my room this morning, applying for jobs, and catching up with iPlayer, I decided that I would share my non beauty favourites with you guys. I’ve always wanted to do a post like this, but I’ve never really had enough things to actually talk about to make it worthy enough. However, I have loads of things I have been loving lately, that I just NEED to share them with you now!
- 100% Chilled Album
I’ve owned this album for a month now, if not a little longer and I really do love it! Aside from alternative, metal, and pretty much any form of rock music, I also really like electronica, house, and chill out music. So when I saw this album being advertised, I knew I had to have it! I’m not a huge fan of compilation CD’s and I don’t know if this is due to being bought Now CD’s as soon as they came out as a kid. I loved them, don’t get me wrong! But I often found out of 40 songs I would only like about half of them, if that. I always found I swayed towards CD two as well, the one that didn’t have the popular songs on it. However with this album I like pretty much all the songs, which is good of course! I pop this on for my drive to and from work, it really does help me chill out, and I love having a sing along with the tracks that come on. I now have this on my iPod and my iPhone so I can listen to it when on the go as well. I’ll be taking it on holiday as well for me and my dad to listen to, as I know he’ll love it. I thought I would list my top 5 favourite tracks off of the album:
- “La La La” ft. Sam Smith – Naughty Boy (YouTube link)
- “Waves” (Robin Schulz Radio Edit) – Mr. Probz (YouTube link)
- “Stay High” (Hippie Sabotage Remix) – Tove Lo (YouTube link)
- “Intro” – The xx (YouTube link)
- “Counting Stars” – OneRepublic (YouTube link)
If you think you’ll like the sound of this album, I recommend picking it up! Aside from No Devotion’s new album coming out at the end of the month, I can see this being my go to album for autumn and winter.

- South Park
If there is one show that I cannot stop watching at the moment, it’s most definitely South Park. A thing of genius, beauty, and offensive shit. I’m even watching it now whilst I write this post! I’ve just got to season 12 and wow, the show really has changed since season 1, the season I grew up watching and pissing myself laughing at. Next week the new season will launch, which is pretty cool and exciting! A lot of people don’t like South Park due to how offensive it can be, but I think it’s hilarious and when you read and watch interview with Trey Parker and Matt Stone, you find out that they aren’t intending to offend people, they’re just making a silly TV show and if it offends people, then it wasn’t intentional. Of course, they are also the guys behind The Book of Mormon (review here), something I went to watch with my boyfriend in July. Lately I’ve not been feeling too great, and when I’ve been at home I’ve been watching this and it sure has cheered me up! It’s hard to pick my favourite character, but since it came out it has always been Kenny, but Butters is now my second favourite. They’re both somewhat similar, but different at the same time. Kenny is poor, doesn’t take off his parka that often, and seems to be more knowledgeable about women out of all the boys. He’s also notorious for being killed in episodes, something the creators stopped happening so often, so when they DO kill him in an episode it’s hilarious. Whereas with Butters, he is just adorable! Constantly getting into trouble with his parents and being grounded, being the innocent one out of all the boys, and just being adorable when he says, “oh hamburgers!” I love South Park now more than I ever have, and I’ll be sad when I finally get up to date with all the episodes. Here are my favourite 5 episodes at the moment:
- “Weight Gain 4000” – Season 1
- “Kenny Dies” – Season 5
- “Scott Tenorman Must Die” – Season 5
- “Towelie” – Season 5
- “Stupid Spoiled Whore Video Playset” – Season 8
- “Woodland Critter Christmas” – Season 8
- “AWESOM-O” – Season 8
- “Marjorine” – Season 9
- “Best Friends Forever” – Season 9
- “Make Love Not Warcraft” – Season 10
Okay I couldn’t just do 5 episodes, I had to do 10! They’re in no best to last order, I love them all equally. Go check out South Park though if you loved it as a teen, it’s even better now.
- Tsum Tsum iPhone Game
I’m totally addicted to this game! I used to own it when it first came out, but I got bored of it and ended deleting. Recently however I saw it being advertised on the App Store and decided to give it another go, and I’m glad I did. This is a little game where you need to join up the various Tsum Tsum characters to essentially get rid of them. They never go mind, but you can get loads of points and cash through it, and then with the cash you can buy new Tsum Tsum characters to play with. They all have different tricks and such you can use to get rid of the characters in the game. It’s very addictive, free, and I recommend it to anyone! The only thing I don’t like about it is that you need to e connected to wifi or 3G/4G to play it. GRR!
To me there is nothing better than relaxing evening of playing Sudoku whilst I watch South Park, or chill out with my boyfriend. Yeah, that sound pretty dull but I love it! Sudoku is something not many enjoy, due to how long it can take to finish one puzzle, but I love that side of it! Recently my boyfriend bought me this gorgeous book and since then I haven’t stopped doing the puzzles. I usually buy a cheapo mini book that I keep in my handbags when out on the go, but this one is much better to pull out of my bag. It was pricey at £2, but totally worth it!
So those were my non beauty favourites recently! I really enjoyed doing this post, and I can see me doing them every now and again. What did you think of this new addition to my blog? Yay, nay? Let me know the comments, as well as what non beauty things you’ve been loving lately.
Until next time, take care all!
