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 July, everyone! June felt like a super long month, so I’m glad July just rolled around. That means summer is almost halfway done. I am so ready for autumn and winter, but I’m not here to go on about my weather woes. Here’s the July edition of “My Favourite Things“, an amazing blog link-up hosted by Raisa and Eirene. My favourites this month have no theme and they are all completely random. As Raisa would say, “It’s a hot mess!” XD
Georgie introduced me to the concepts of subscription boxes. In the last couple of months, I’d been eyeing a few of the accessory ones, and I finally took the plunge to try out these three boxes:
- Sparkle Box
- Helene Jewelry
I can’t wait to see what bracelets and watches I’ll get :D I’m an arm candy girl, and I’ve specifically mentioned that to Sparkle Box, while Helene Jewels is all about arm candy. Wantable’s questionnaire also allowed me to specify to only receive bracelets and watches, so woot! I’ll be reviewing the boxes when I get them, so look forward to them!
Glittery Gel Manicure
I never liked glitter manicures because I hated the texture, so I assumed glittery gel manicures would leave behind the same rough texture. Nope. I was proven wrong. Chibi Toaster and I went to get gel manis done at White Nail, a salon in my neighbourhood, and she mentioned that fact to me, so I decided to give it a try. Oh, man, I absolutely adore how they came out :D Smooth and glittery — just the way I like it! I think, from now on, whenever I go for a gel mani, I’ll pick the glittery shades for the shinies and sparklies!
Weeny Beeny, from what I can see, is some imported gourmet sweets distributor. Their shops are in malls, amusement parks, and touristy areas. My workplace has been going on field trips every Wednesday, and I’ve encountered a Weeny Beeny in Coex Mall Aquarium gift shop, Everland, and N Seoul Tower. Let’s just say I cannot walk away from them, and it’s mostly because of these two particular sweets . . .
These sour strawberry Rip Rolls are addicting. This is the only flavour I like; I’ve tried another flavour, but I didn’t like it as much as the strawberry one.
The aforementioned Rip Rolls are amazing, but it’s these sour coke gummies I live for. I mean, yes, I can get the non-sour Haribo ones, but these are just BETTER. I know Haribo’s have the sour version, too, but I rarely ever see those in the shoppette, so Weeny Beeny it is!
Terra Chips’ Sweet Potato Chips
Oh, my word. I’ve finally found chips that are not salted. YES. YES. YES. My tastebuds are more Korean in that I can’t do the overly salty food that American snacks and food are known for, but these I can do :D I love sweet potato chips, and these are just amazing. The lack of salt really makes me happy. I only hope that the shoppette continues to bring these often!
I recently discovered these, too, but I’ve tried the chocolate chips one, and I wasn’t enamoured by them. However, the salted caramels are just super good! I know I don’t do salt well, but salted caramels are a different story. This is one of my favourite new snack food, haha. Perfect for when I get the chocolate craving!
Bomi the Puppy
As a bonus, here’s another photo of Bomi the adorable Maltese! I’m in love with this furball. How can anyone not fall in love with her adorable puppy face? :D With that said, I’ll see you all next month for August’s favourites!
