Every now and then, new things pop into your life and you just fall in love. Books, music, games, a new car maybe? It can be absolutely anything. They make our lives just a little happier, don’t they? Well here are mine.
1. New Music: Explosions in the Sky
After watching Friday Night Lights (okay, I pretty much inhaled that fantastic show), Zayaan suggested a band called Explosions in the Sky. This is the same band who does the music soundtrack for Friday Night Lights. So bascially, how could I notlove them? They’re an instrumental band and the music is beautiful (no Nicki Minaj here). It’s filled with so many feels.
This love is not so much for the book itself (which is good on it’s own so far) but for 2 smaller issues.
2.1 The love of reading in general. It’s just such a wonderful escape from everyday life that I am grateful to have the skill/opportunity to indulge in. I’m also grateful/proud that I have a love for reading at all.
2.2 I am loving reading new and different types of books. I decided to try John Gone (which I randomly picked up for free) after it was sitting on my Kindle for a couple of months. I got into a rut of reading the same couple of authors over and over and I needed something fresh. And it’s awesome. Yay!
3. New Iron Man 3 trailer
I love me some Robert Downey Junior and I love the Iron Man series just as much. It was fantastic to watch the new full-length trailer (so far) of the latest installment. I can’t wait for the movie!
Again, watch and enjoy.
What are some of your favourite things at the moment?
Is it just me or did we just have a mini summer in September? This past weekend in Cape Town, the weather was amazing. Warm and sunny. I didn’t have to blow dry my hair, I had a fan going in my room and I wore dresses, guys! Dresses.
I guess I just completely fit the stereotype on this one but I love candles. If I got a giant hamper of candles as a birthday gift and nothing else, I’d be totally happy.
That’s probably why seeing that Girl Guides is giving away a kiff SoyLites candle hamper made we quite excited!

The geeks over at Girl Guides are awesome! And that’s why I’ve added them to my “South African Sites That Rock” section over on the right… Also, follow them on Twitter and Like their Facebook page. Go on, do it. Now.
On the 14th of November 2011, Daniel and I had been dating for 5 years.
Dude, that is a long time. That’s like… 260 weeks or 1825 days. It’s a lot okay.
Anyway, it’s been awesome. I’ve been really blessed to have someone as patient (trust me, he needs it) and loving (he likes to snuggle!) and romantic (I win ^_^) in my life.
Especially considering that I was only a wee 17 years old when we started on this crazy journey called a relationship. And it has been rather crazy. A LOT has happened in 5 years but I’m glad that Duckie has been my one constant. I’m not quite sure where I would be without him.
Even though it’s been an entire 5 years, there is still so much we have yet to experience together.
There’s marriage and all it’s perks. Yes, all it’s perks.
We want to travel overseas together too.
Then there’s just living together.
There’s kids that will come along one day. In the future. The far future.
We’ve been through a lot of bad things together and I know there’ll be more. Unfortunately.
It’s been a blast. It’s been crazy. It’s been fun. It’s been awesome.
Here are a few photos of us, because, well, it was our anniversary.
