My Current Non-Beauty Favourites

Hi All, how are you?

I was considering whipping up another product review of my favourite mascara or foundation but that seemed a little mundane. Instead, I'm going to list all of my non-beauty favourites at this current moment...enjoy!

1. The Divergent Series -

Last month I decided to embrace the inner teeny bopper inside of me and read the whole Divergent series in one week. I absolutely loved them! Not only does the author, Veronica Roth, take you on a thrilling adventure that keeps you constantly on your toes, intertwined with a love story that melts your heart, she also explores the ideas of identity and the understanding of who you are and what you stand for. I would highly recommend you read these books, especially before watching the first Divergent movie.

2. The Fault in Our Stars -

Firstly, can I just say, that I haven't read the book. I know it's a crime but I'll get there, I definitely will.

This is 100% my new favourite movie of all time. Watching this movie made me smile, cry (a LOT) and strangely enough, walk out not feeling grief stricken but with a sense of hope. A realisation that life should be celebrated, love should be shared and living in the moment is more important than anything else because you never know what's around the corner. If you haven't yet seen this movie, I highly recommend that you do, just be sure to have a box of tissues at the ready.

3. John Mayer, Don't Stop This Train -

It seems a little odd to be including a song as part of my favourites list. Maybe because it's not a tangible item that I would usually write about, but nevertheless it deserves to be a part of this post. We all know how brilliant John Mayer is as a guitarist, and this is no exception. The song is chill, something you listen to when you want to relax. The lyrics are completely relatable, the feeling of time catching up on you, getting older without being ready. Somehow though, like The Fault in Our Stars which I mentioned above, he manages to make light of the situation. My next challenge is to learn how to play this song on guitar myself, reckon I can do it?

4. Eggpant Door Stop by Mozi -

Funny story behind this one. My Aunty conducted a fun present giving game on Christmas day and my Dad ended up with this door stop (which my Mum bought as a joke and believe me, we had a good laugh! haha). As my Dad has no use for this door stop and my bedroom door has a mind of it's own, never seeming to hold it's own place, I acquired this hilariously cute piece of furniture...and I love it! If you're ever looking for a cute present or house decoration similar to this one, Mozi is your one stop shop.

5. Watermelon 4S iPhone Case by Sportsgirl -

I'm sure that many of you non-dinasaurs have upgraded your iPhone's since the prehistoric ages but I, however, haven't. You have no idea how difficult it is to find an iPhone 4S case these days without ordering online! Anyway, I found this super cute case in Sportsgirl the other day for only $9.95. The clear case is hard backed, super smooth and is covered in black polka dots and watermelons. Loves!

6. Herbal Tea -

I've never been a huge tea drinker in the past but lately, these past couple of months, I'm honestly obsessed with it. Herbal tea makes me feel so hydrated and good on the inside that I drink probably 3-4 cups a day now, which is pretty insane for me. My favourite herbal teas are rosehip with lemongrass and ginger, green tea with lemon and peppermint.

What are your non-beauty favourites at the moment? Would love to know!
