I feel like the weeks are absolutely flying by at the moment. The essays are starting to pile up for uni, I am working a decent amount especially on the weekends, and between running again and my yoga obsession I am a busy little bee 🙂 I love being busy and often feel like I am most productive when I have multiple things on the go- it’s when I have too much time before an essay is due that I start procrastinating. Luckily my uni profs seem to have taken this into account and have given me a thousand essays to do 🙂
Anyway, it feels like five seconds have passed since my last Friday Favourites post, but here we go again, these are my favourite things of the week that have been floating my little boat a whole lot:
-Manuka honey face cream. I have very dry skin and love me a good rich moisturizer. Manuka honey from my amazing homeland is incredible, has a million health benefits and smells divine. Thanks for this Mum 🙂
-You know how Apple products come in the most beautiful clean white packaging? Whenever I have gotten a new Apple product I have been loathe to throw that shizzle in the bin. When I got my new computer charger a few weeks ago I had a brainwave- I can use the box for my everyday makeup staples! Innovation at it’s finest guys 😉
-My new watch. The owner of the restaurant I work at is possibly the most generous person I have ever met, and on return from his trip overseas he gave me this watch. I LOVE huge watches on girls and so I am completely obsessed with it. Plus the strap matches my handbag. This makes me really, really happy; I love me some matching.
-You knew this post was going to include cereal of some kind right? Not a morning goes by when I don’t wake up to cereal. Also on days that I don’t work I don’t get free food from the restaurant, so let’s be honest here, cereal is a regular dinner staple for me too.
-I have been reading Dream Yoga since I left Canada (intermittently) and it is amazing. I am a HUGE dreamer, usually having at least three vivid dreams a night, and so I’m excited to read something new on the topic, especially if it helps me with any nightmares.
-Speaking of books, listening to Mindy Kaling’s autobiography when I am running is my new obsession. I don’t know why I didn’t get on the audio book bandwagon sooner- this is like combining two hobbies in one for me, reading and running. I feel like my intelligence level is about to go way up.
-Skyping with my bestie. Yes, this is still pretty much a daily thing. With my family and most of my close friends in NZ, my bestie in Indonesia, and Curtis in Canada…. Skype is kindof my favourite thing ever.
-Studying in bed. Full disclosure guys, this is the best thing ever about being a student. Never mind the whole “enriching my knowledge” thing, studying in bed is where it’s at. Ps I know my collarbone looks a little bit weird in this pic but it was just the way I was sitting, I promise it doesn’t usually look like that.
-This is more to do with Curtis than it is with me, but his wins are my wins, and he drove 15 hours across Canada this week to start a new job working towards when he comes here in September. I am pretty much wildly excited about him coming here, and so every step towards that makes me really happy. I’ll admit I have been planning what I am gonna wear at the airport/what to cook for him/every date we are going to go on that we haven’t been able to during these seven months. I cannot wait 🙂 He took some amazing photos during his roadtrip too, making me want to go back to Canada sometime and maybe do a cross-Canada roadtrip, how awesome would that be?
