My 5 Favourite Things

I wouldn’t say I was a nosey person but I do like reading about other people’s lives. Just as people read my blog. The lovely Jen who writes a blog called Just Average Jen tagged and challenged me to write about my 5 favourite things.
Originally I thought this would be really easy, but it turns out it really isn’t.

The obvious favourite things, well people in the world are my family and friends. Today however I am going to write about actual items I own that I love.

My Camera

My Favourite ThingsSeveral years ago a good friend of mine bought himself a new camera so I acquired his old one. From that point on I became in love with photography. Several years later I upgraded to a new DSLR. I am not a very good photographer but that is because I need to learn how to use my camera properly. Since I updated my camera I have spent far too much money on lenses, filters, flashgun and more. I would love to upgrade my camera but there is no point until I master the one I have. I love taking photos and this is why my camera is on of my favourite things.

My Straw Hat
My Favourite Things

I know a straw hat might be a strange item to have as a favourite thing. Several years ago, just as straw hats had become the in thing.. again!  I really wanted one. Could I find one I liked anywhere? No. However on a trip down to Cornwall to visit family we went over to Newquay where E pointed out all the hats as she liked them. I then purchased this one, I love my hat, I love the style and the floral band and I think it suits me. I always love getting to wear it in the summer months.

My Yellow Shoes

My 5 Favourite ThingsMy favourite colour is yellow, I think it is such a happy colour. I used to own quite a few yellow clothing items. There is a little story behind these shoes. I was shopping one day in Taunton where we used to live and I instantly liked them but wasn’t sure if I would wear them. A friend convinced me to buy them and I am glad they did despite me hardly ever wearing them. Yellow shoes don’t really go with many outfits and have hardly been worn. But they make me happy and are one of my 5 favourite things.

My iphone

My 5 Favourite ThingsI know its a strange one, but I love my iPhone. All the apps, photos and things it can do make my life easier. Taking photos on the go, filming the children and sad as it might seem I love my apps. The apps I have on my phone make blogging on the go easier, social media apps, my wordpress app, photography apps. You get the idea. Oh and I better not forget the shopping apps and apps to entertain the kids occasionally

My Mac Lipgloss
I have a weakness for Mac make up, my favourite item is a lovely pink sparkle shine lipgloss. When I  decided to take a photo to add to the post I was traumatised as I don’t know where it is. I am hoping I haven’t left it somewhere last weekend when I was away for a wedding. If I am unable to find it off to the mac shop I will go. Anyway, the mac lipgloss I am hoping I still own is my favourite, I love the colour, the shine and the little sparkle. It is definitely one of my 5 favourite things.

Because I am super nosey going to tag a few bloggers in the post – I look forward to seeing what their five favourite things are

    Love the shoes. I saw a pair of green shoes that I really liked a couple of years ago but I didn’t buy them even though I loved them. I should have x
