Well, at least I’m (hopefully) managing to get this post up. I guess I shouldn’t make any promises given that so far it is now a total of two sentences long. But honestly, this week has been rough in terms of getting things done. I have been absolutely exhausted and have actually skipped out on NaNoWriMo most nights. I’d like to say I’ll catch up, but it seems unlikely. However, I will keep writing as much as I can. That said there are definitely some Friday Favourites I’d like to share this week all the same, and here they are!
1. Orphan Black (Season 2)
Maybe this is cheating since I made Season 1 a favourite last week, but it tells you how much my boyfriend and I were enjoying it that we’ve now finished up Season 2 as well. Where is Season 3 already? This get even more intense in this season as some of the origins and backstory behind the clones is revealed. Of course Tatiana Maslany continues to be brilliant as well.
2. Online Shopping
This week I’m featuring Future Shop, Amazon, Chapters, and Sephora. Yup. My bank account is hurting, although those orders did involve quite a few gifts plus trip supplies like a suitcase. But there have been a lot of purchases this week. Let’s just say I’m grateful for Ebates, at least I’ve earned a few dollars cashback!
3. Taylor Swift (“Blank Space”)
Honestly, I have never liked Taylor Swift’s music before, but I just kept hearing about her new CD and this latest release off of it, Blank Space, is just super catchy and kinda funny, especially in context to her earlier work. I do enjoy the video, especially the random, standing on a horse bit. What?
4. Yankee Candle Autumn Wreath
I grabbed this candle earlier this week, and it’s a delicious fall scent, full of apple and cinnamon. I got the last large one but I’m kinda tempted to go back and grab a smaller size as well, it smells good! I think the throw is pretty good, considering I’ve never heard of Yankee Candles being awesome for it, and I’ve really been enjoying burning it this week.
5. Gummy Vitamins
I was having a hard time coming up with a fifth favourite, which is why this post is up kinda late, but then I realized, GUMMY VITAMINS. I picked up the Vitafusion B Complex Gummy Vitamins for Adults when I got my candle, and although I can’t say they have helped with the exhaustion yet, I can say, they are a lot more fun to take than regular vitamins. These are strawberry, and you only have to take one a day, and the brand is (at least locally) very affordable, so I will see how I feel in two months about repurchasing, but so far, it’s a definite success.
I’m visiting friends and doing a lot of shopping for PERU in the city this weekend, so there won’t be any more posts (hopefully next week I’m more on top of things). Let me know how you’re doing and if you have tried any of these Friday Favourites? Also, how do you feel about these posts? I feel like they let me be more personal on Writing Whimsy, which I enjoy, but maybe isn’t for everyone.
