NYX setting spray. No more foundation/BB/CC cream sliding off my face towards lunchtime, it’s going nowhere! Don’t even need an extra dash of powder.
OB tampons. Yes hi, in case you’re new, menstruation is one of my favorite topics. My Provera treatment managed to kick-start my menstruation about a week ago. For reasons unknown I had a different brand of tampons in my bathroom, i.e. not OB. JFC. Not only were they painful to insert (with vaseline!), but, I got up one morning completely confused as to what had happened to my tampon. The string had somehow managed to crawl up inside me. I do not need that at six in the morning. I’m going to be ridiculously loyal to OB from now on. It’s never done that to me. Ever.
No7 Intense Volume waterproof mascara. Ah yes, still loving this mascara. How did I ever get by without a waterproof mascara?
Boots sunscreen. Because if you’re going to go on 2-hour walks, even if it is in the afternoon, you’re going to need some good sun protection.
Converse. Haven’t owned a pair of Converse for years and years now. Because if you walk a lot you need shoes with some sort of cushioning. But since I am now old and wise, I know the solution to this problem is an insole of the sport variety – I use them in all shoes I can fit them into, because why wouldn’t you? So I thought I’d pull this trick with these shoes too – only Converse is apparently also old and wise – they came with the insole. Extremely happy about that.
Beans. I go through periods where I just cannot stand another meal with beans, and much prefer fake meats like Quorn; while other periods, beans is the only thing I want. Right now, I want beans for all meals. Currently going through a bag of Pinto beans (I cook the entire bag in one go, divide it into containers and keep in the freezer). Especially loving these beans with rice noodles and lots of roasted green veggies.
Popcorn. I’m on the verge of a popcorn addiction. I will cut myself off, just going to finish the last of this bag.
Recoil’s Liquid. Some of my all-time favorite songs are on this record: Breath Control, Want, Last Call for Liquid Courage, and Chrome. I keep looking for music similar to these songs. I’ve exhausted all my resources. Would love any suggestions!
Architects’ All Our Gods Have Abandoned Us. Jag orkar liksom inte hur bra det här bandet är /objektiv åsikt. This record has quickly become one of my favorite records ever. Because 1. the songs seem to belong together, and 2. there are no fillers and, obviously, 3. there isn’t a song on the record that I don’t like. There are surprisingly few records meeting these criteria. Even my favorite record, Tura Satana’s Relief Through Release, has a filler (Negative Creep, Nirvana cover, I like to pretend it’s not there) and the fact that the last track comes with a long silence followed by nonsense, it cannot possibly have made anyone happy ever?
My home town. We’ve not been getting along brilliantly lately, but give me a grey Saturday morning, when everyone else is still sleeping, and I get the streets all to myself, and I remember why I love this place. I worry that I won’t be staying for much longer tho; best enjoy it while I can.
