These are a few of my favourite things...


Another instalment in “These are a few of my favourite things”.  So, without further ado, these are the things that are either rocking my world or that I aspire to get to rock my world. Not the most exciting or adventurous of lists but winter’s round the corner and its hibernation time! Hahaha!
1.) Nandos – You can beat that Piri piri chicken. I swear I practically drink the sauce everytime I go. And I always go extra hot as well!!! Partly because I like it (I love spicy food!!!) but also partly to prove to my friends that I can!

2.) Champagne – Especially free Champagne! Haha! I like the bubbles – not so much the hangover the next day if you’re fortunate (or unfortunate – I can decide which) to get drunk on it.
3.) Open fire – I love going back to the country side and snuggling in front of the fire place. It’s like my favourite place in the house at winter.
4.) The Inbetweeners – H-I-L-A-R-I-O-U-S!!! Amazing show! And I fancy two of the guys! Joe Thomas (who plays Simon – hubba hubba!!!) and Blake Harrison (who plays Neil). Another ‘don’t judge me’ moment here – I looked on Wikipedia and it turns out they’re actually older than me, so there. Haha!
5.) D&G Mini Bag – Fantastic on a night out! Stores the essentials – keys, mobile phone… you get the picture.
6.) Orchids – These are, without a doubt, my favourite flowers! Sorry but roses just don’t cut it with these bad boys around. They take ages to bloom but they’re so worth it!
7.) Archie comics – these are such a throw back to me growing up and I like them as much now as I did before! I just stock piled on almost 40 of them for Christmas time. (I did say it was hibernation time)

8.) Chanel Watch – such a classic design! I want one! So much… So, er…. if you wanna treat me to something nice for Christmas… * hint * * hint *
9.) Pugs – Sooooooooooooooooo cute!!!!!!!!!!!! Need I say more!

10.) John Lewis Christmas advert - This is one of my favourite things mostly because it totally took me by surprise! I’d ignored it initially till one day I was watching TV and stuffing my face my pizza and I watched it properly. I was crying by the end of it – and I assure you, I don’t cry that easily. Not with adverts anyway. Lol! I expected a different ending as well, which added to the surprise.


And that’s all folks! Catch you soon! xoxo

I love champagne, fireplaces and orchids. It would be lovely to have all three together!

Nandos, yum!!!

Can you post a recipe for that chicken or is it a trade secret? I love pugs too. They always looks like they are laughing at me and I can respect an animal with that kind of contempt for me.

Love the pugs. They are really cute and Archie comics are great too.

@Gaelle, I know right? I'm on my way out there right now.
@Cal, I wish I knew the recipe too!!! It's a Nandos secret (well you can buy the sauce but it never tastes the same). lol! @laughing pugs!
@Demmy, yeah, pugs are amazing!!! And the Archie comics are such a throw-back.
@Sisi Yemmie, I know!!!!!!!!! That was the same thing here and that was what took me by surprise!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

They say giving is so much more rewarding, I think so too. Merry Christmas girl, Geoff.
