Favourites of the Day: May 8th

1. Regina Spektor - Fidelity:
Regina Spektor ...Just listen to the song above.

2. "Forever is a Long, Long Time, and Time has a Way of Changing Things" - The Fox and the Hound:
I love this movie, and I love this quote. It always reminds me to live in the present and not to worry too far ahead into the future. Some things really are well beyond our control, and even some changes that are within our control cannot be foreseen: "Forever is a long, long time, and time has a way of changing thing." So, while it's good to make plans for your future - always keep them a little flexible, or you're bound to be upset.

3. Skull Candles:
I'm far from what someone might call "gothic" but there is definitely something about the macabre that fascinates me. While I don't wear Skull clothing (well..I would if someone would buy me an Alexander McQueen Scarf...), I love Skull jewellery and Skull Decoration Pieces, and especially Skull Candles! Am I creepy?

4. Neutrogena Hand Cream:
I know I've talked about several different Hand Creams before all over my blog (can you tell I am obsessed with silky smooth hands?), but this is another one of my favourites. This one is a little different than other creams in that rather than being a "cream" or a "lotion" it's a strange gel-like consistency. You just need to put a tiny bit on and rub it in, and it suddenly smoothes into your skin and makes it unbelievably silky. I was skeptical at first when I saw the consistency (gel) but I've been won over. They come in a bunch of different sizes, and you can even get a mini 15ml one for your purse (which is size I just used up) for about $2!

5. Chain Print
First of all, I know this is supposed to be my favourite things post, and not about things I dislike - but for the record, White Jeans? No. I had a pair a while ago and they got dirty extremely easily. I wouldn't sit down in the dirt with them, but somehow even sitting in restaurants or on the bus, I'd end up with huge dirt marks on my behind....less than ideal. Don't fall for this trend - as pretty as they look, the upkeep and hassle is totally not worth it! Ok, onto Chain print, which I actually do love! This Zara chain print blouse is awesome. I also love chain print scarves. Some people associate it with the 80's or the elderly, but I absolutely adore this print. This novelty print definitely gives flare to any outfit. Would you ever wear chain print?
