My Favourite Things is a precursor to TC’s Treasures. Starting in November 2016, all My Favourite Things posts will be known as TC’s Treasures.
Happy April, everyone! A new month means, another “My Favourite Things” post. This is a blog link-up hosted by the lovely Raisa and Eirene, and you can write about what you’ve been loving the past month :D Here are my favourites for this month!
Years ago, I was in several message boards/forums, and I remember really enjoying my time on there. When I saw that Kya relaunched a new message board called CupMB, I decided to join, and I’m super glad I did! I’ve been meeting fellow bloggers online, and it’s real fun discussing things with them :D
Along with CupMB, Blog Matter is back, thanks to Kya :D Blog Matter is a community for bloggers to connect with other bloggers and to discover new blogs. I love it! It’s well-organised, and it’s great concept. What amazes me is that this whole website was built with WordPress. Now, I know WordPress is a good CMS, but to build a community/directory like Blog Matter? WOW. Anyway, I hope to see some of you join Cup and Blog Matter!
This suckerfish is from my workplace. I am not a big fish fan, but I enjoy watching this fish. Lately, whenever I get a chance to breathe, I’ll sit in front of the fish tank and watch the fishes. The suckerfish has been more active, so I’ve got to see this bad boy in action, and it’s amusing how it eats. The first time I saw it do this, I was a bit freaked out, but now I enjoy watching it eat XD
As much as I love my slow cooker, I do not like cleaning the thing because it’s way too darn bulky and heavy. Luckily, though, I discovered a wonderful thing called the slow cooker liner. This liner is a life-saver and makes cleaning so much easier! I adore this thing, and I do not mind paying extra for a bit of comfort and ease.
I’m not too much into fashion or make-up, but I do like getting manicures. Earlier in March, I had gel manicure done, and then I had a regular one a couple of weeks later. For the regular mani, I went to a nail place near my flat, and I got to see how they compared to the usual place I get it done on-post. I chose the pastel green colour.
I decided that I like the place on-post better since the atmosphere, seating, and service is better, and the price is about the same. I went to the place on-post and got my nails done in white and blue :D
This is my new favourite bag. This is the Mini Diamond District from Thirty-One Gifts. Unfortunately, this bag was being sold for a limited time only :( I hope Thirty-One brings it back in the future! Anyway, I’m a huge messenger bag person, but nowadays, I find it to be extremely bulky for when I want to just carry something on the smaller side. When I need to carry documents that are 8.5″ x 11″, then a messenger bag or my backpack will work. But if I just want to carry my wallet, Kindle, nail kit, smartphone, and A5-sized notebooks? Yeah, too bulky. I have a smaller bag, but that one’s way too small to where I can’t even fit my A5 notebook! Then I discovered the Mini Diamond District. It’s a perfect size to carry all the stuff I want or need on a daily basis, and I love that it’s a cross-body like a messenger bags! Funny thing is that my mum also decided to own one, so I got her a matching one in pink :D
