Favourites of the Day: May 18th

  
1. Fly Over States by Jason Aldean:
 I know that Country isn't for everyone (though it should be :P) so my obsession with this song (as a country lover) might not persuade any of you to take a listen...BUT you should! Country lover or non-country lover, check it out! It's lovely :)

2. Tea-Cup Candles:
How cute are these?!? I am clearly going to go to a thrift store and buy a bunch of teacups to make these for myself/as gifts for friends! Does anyone know where you get the wax to melt into them though? I've never made a candle before :S Help!

3. Anything Peacock:
So in case you haven't noticed from my Blog Header.... I really like peacocks! I think peacock feathers are so pretty! These stockings are so elegant/sexy - I want a pair! I have a gorgeous peacock feather necklace that I am currently obsessed with. I was hoping to get the peacock appliques in my Cinco De Mayo Box but alas it was not meant to be, I will just have to fawn over the pictures of all the lucky girls who did (please do take photos of them on!) 


4. 8 Tracks:
If you haven't heard of 8 Tracks go check it out! It's a website where users create online playlists (with themes/genres) and anyone can listen! There are thousands (maybe millions?) of playlists to choose from - and it's a great way to discover new music! It's of course, totally free!


5. Alba Coconut Milk Body Cream:
I like to put on body lotion after getting out of the shower. I just finished a tub of this one - it makes my legs SO SO SMOOTH! I am also probably biased because it smells like coconuts....slightly obsessed with the scent right now.... It's kind of goopy/watery compared to say Body-Butters from the body-shop, but once it goes on your skin it dries completely and isn't sticky/watery. Mmmm silky smooth coconut magic.... Alba is made with all Organic Ingredients, Sulphate Free, and 100% vegetarian too = reducing environmental impact! (and yes, of course I recycled the container when I was finished....Read my Earth Day Post!)

It's a long weekend here in Canada so I am taking off, and I am also really really busy with work right now - so I am going to be M.I.A for a little while, but I hope everyone has a lovely long (or short!) weekend!!

  3. I love love love peacocks too..it's a sick obsession with me. It's funny because any other kind of bird I think their feathers are gross! lol

    I think you can probably buy candle making stuff at Michael's. Just melt beeswax and pour it in. Don't forget the wick!! heheh. I guess you could also melt a regular candle and pour it in a teacup. I also really love teacups.

    I have to obsess in my mind or minimally or my house would look like a circus! :S

    1. Haha I totally WOULD have done something silly like forgotten the wick! I am definitely going to go get wax from Michaels and teacups from a thrift store and try these out as soon as I get some breathing time from work (and will of course post photos of my attempt...)!
