These are a few of my favourite things... Another installment!


This has been a truly indulgent weekend! I’ve been making the most of the bank holidays by being really lazy and so I figured I’d put together a list of the things I’m currently obsessing over. Okay, maybe obsessing is a tad too serious but you get the general idea…
1.) iMac – I’m an ‘Apple-head’. I’m pretty happy with my MacBook Pro but since using one of these at my friend’s the other day, I’ve been crazy about it! I’d have to get the largest one ever and rationalise this purchase by claiming that its both a computer (a powerful one at that) and a TV. See, I’m thinking ahead! Okay, that is some poor rationalisation but I think I deserve this. I now have to spend some time thinking of reasons why I deserve this... *scratches head*
2.) Hanging Chairs – I mean look at them! I could so see my bum permanently glued to them… Someone please buy me one! :-)
3.) Love tub – Discovered these at Waitrose recently. One word – AMAZING!
4.) Big Dorset Louboutins – like I was really gonna do a favourite things posts without shoes! lol! (Apologies, I’ve been going through a Louboutin phase for the last couple of months)
5.) Easy A – I love this movie. Emma Stone is amazingly funny in it! Just got the DVD and I’ve spent the best part of a week LOL-ing at it. *sings* “I’ve got a pocket, got a pocketful of sunshine…”
6.) Nerds – Just in case I never mentioned it before – I’ve got a major sweet tooth! And with the rainbow of colours…er… SOLD! This is how my love of colour manifests itself – not, in creative interior decoration or fashion (or something useful!), Oh no, just in my sweet tooth indulgence! *shakes head*
7.) Joe Manganiello a.k.a Alcide Herveaux from True Blood – D-E-L-I-C-I-O-U-S! Is Sookie blind or something?! LOL! Okay, the other two are great in their own way but Joe is my 100% beefcake! Yum!!!
8.) Denim short shorts – This is probably my way of refusing to acknowledge that summer will over soon. I don’t want it to end. *sobs* I’m never letting go! 
9.) Shunt – I’ve been obsessing about this because I miss it! When I used to go it was in this amazing hidden location smack in the centre of London – a dis-used underground station near London Bridge. They had everything there - airplane seats, a Wii room, art installation rooms, salsa room, empty rooms, light pianos, live bands. So many tiny little nooks and crannies everywhere. Such an arty and amazing night out. Loved it. BRING IT BACK! 
10.) Borough Market – You can get almost anything here. I love that about it. I love browsing at Borough market – most times because browsing usually ends up leading to unexpected purchases!

That’s it! I’ve got so much to tell you guys by the way, which I fully intend on doing very soon! So much has happened and I can’t wait to share it!!! Till next time...

I love a lot of your favorite things too! I wish I had a hanging chair. What could be better than an adult-sanctioned swing?

{ Small Town Shelly Brown } at: 29 August 2011 at 02:41 said...

I love this list. I told my hubby that I needed that round chair for writing ;) He rolled his eyes.
I don't know what Shunt is but it looks amazing!
I have been to Borough Market and it's pretty darn fun!
I'm kinda apple-geeky myself.
Fun post :)

That Lovetub ice cream sounds amazing!

{ Dean K Miller } at: 29 August 2011 at 03:54 said...

A quite respectable list. Am not informing daughter of the Big Dorset Louboutins...enough shoes already! Though I met give in on Joe Manganiello to the two oldest!

And I'll definitely take the pasteries bar at Borough's Market.

{ lindy } at: 29 August 2011 at 06:12 said...

Oh my gosh! Everything on your list is either delish or to die for! Erm...except for the 'Shunt', I found that rather frightening. Creeeeepy...... Smoggy, with what I can only presume is cigarette smoke, and then there's the strange psychotic lights. Find a happy place. Find a happy place. (sorry, have to quote Dumb and Dumber every chance I get). Lol, great post!

{ C.J Duggan } at: 29 August 2011 at 06:29 said...

So in other words if you found Joe Manariello sitting in a hanging chair, eating Love Tub sprinkelled with nerds. Oh and dressed in nothing but denim cut offs and and a killer pair of Louboutins! You would consider this a good day?? I concur...

P.S *Hand on heart* I understand the Mac elite feeling. I got an MacBook Pro this year and it rocks my face off!

{ SKB } at: 29 August 2011 at 08:28 said...

Those are all great. Wish I had a market like that to go to!

{ Mimi } at: 29 August 2011 at 10:34 said...

hmmm...between the Pastries bar at Boroughs market and Rainbow nerds candy you got me sprung here.
Lola, you no try oh. My throat is longing....

A fantastic post, I wish there were things like you have shown when I was younger, I remember the first transistor radio, no pcs or iphones/ipods.
There were hunky men though,

Have a good day.
Yvonne.

Everything you listed here sounds amazing--especially Shunt. Sigh, I'd love to go to that if it's even a third as awesome as the pictures and your description! <3 a newb follower, and thanks for the <3 you left on my blog! :)

Love the shoes too! And I think that I could probably dive in and drown in the Lovetub! Thanks for dropping by my blog and leaving the lovely message - hope to see you again soon!

I love the hanging chair. I could sit in that all day!

{ Debbie Davis } at: 30 August 2011 at 03:35 said...

Great list!! I love it, and ofcourse Joe's hunky pictures too! Thanks so much for stopping by my blog to say hi! Glad you did, because I am loving your blog too! =0)

{ Miz } at: 30 August 2011 at 17:26 said...

LOLA!!!!!!! I LOVE...!!!!!

I can picture me curled up in one of those hanging chairs... the iMac has got me drooling and you know how much I heart Red sole Loubis already!!! The dessert from the borough market look delish!!!
This post is a tease and I love it!!

{ LisaAnn } at: 30 August 2011 at 18:53 said...

Been obsessing over those shoes myself lately, and I'm a flip-flop / ballet flat girl. I would also move into that delightful chair... Fantastic!

{ NRC♥ } at: 31 August 2011 at 13:21 said...

I really want a hanging chair!

My school has those Mac computers. I hate them because they run Final Cut Express, which is perhaps the most infuriating video-editing program ever made by mankind.

Oh, hanging chairs. I agree with you; they're fantastic. So much fun.

{ J.L. Campbell } at: 31 August 2011 at 17:36 said...

Man, you tons of stuff to obsess about. I love the shoes, but I don't weight what I used to so contemplating heels like those would be setting me up for a fall. The hanging chair looks super comfy.

{ Gregory Marshall Smith } at: 1 September 2011 at 04:15 said...

This list really threw me until you mentioned London, but I can imagine women buying LoveTub by the, well, tubful, if offered here in the States. Also, wouldn't the shoes give most women acrophobia? It reminds of an episode of "Cheers" where one of Sam's dates cancels because she fell off her shoes.

{ Misha } at: 2 September 2011 at 14:38 said...

I desire one of those hanging chairs. But they're way too expensive for me. :-(

if blogs use WYSIWYG editors or if you have
to manually code with HTML. I'm starting a blog soon but have no coding know-how so I wanted to get advice from someone with experience. Any help would be enormously appreciated!
