5 favourites in Colour

This is my attempt at a blog series, and I am hoping that it will be as fun to read as it is to write. During these posts I will choose a colour and find 5 items – be it beauty products, stationary, home ware or just everyday meaningful things – to write about. So now that I’ve stated the obvious, lets jump right in:

#1 – BLACK

My 5 favourites in BLACK

My 5 favourites in BLACK

I’ve mentioned before that I love the colour black. There’s just something about it that soothes my soul and draws me in. To me black screams class and sophistication. Its the colour that I reach for whenever I don’t know what to wear – it comforts me. With that being said, these are my 5 favourites in black:

Eyeliner and Mascara

I love a good eyeliner and mascara. I’m constantly trying new brands to find the best of the bunch which gives me what I am looking for. It has to be long lasting, smudge proof and highly pigmented. Usually I stick with my trusted Rimmel eyeliner and Maybelline mascara because it offers me all of the before mentioned qualities, but I’ve been testing the waters with different products too. I am really enjoying L’oreal’s Manga Mascara and Bourjois Clubbing Waterproof Eyeliner Pencil.

Gigabyte Netbook

I don’t have a laptop of my own because I hate debt so I am saving up until I can afford to buy one myself – cash. But since I started blogging, I’ve been using my husband’s netbook which has been working out really well.

Hard drive

When it comes to movies, series, pictures and music, I am a collector (because that sounds less creepy than “hoarder”). I collect all my favourites and it makes me happy that I get to keep it all organized on one little device. Also, my favourite series at the moment – The Blacklist – is stored on it.

Mr. Price Home notebooks

When I planned on starting this blog I was really uninspired when it came to what I was going to write about. I thought that maybe if I got some notebooks to write down my thoughts, it would make the whole process easier. When I made this decision it was close to the end of the month so money was a bit tight. Great stationary can be pricey, but when I ended up in Mr Price Home my eyes immediately fell on these. I adored the design and the price was very friendly on the old purse strings. I keep the ‘my little black book’ in my handbag so that I can quickly jot down something when it pops into my head. I enjoy writing in them because this way I get to organize my highly overactive brain.

Black Pens

I love a good black pen; it makes the whole writing process that much more fun and productive. When I was studying I always needed to have a black pen to write with, and I would get annoyed if it wasn’t a good one. It may seem silly but for me something as simple as having a great pen can really increase my will to get my work done. So now, as a working gal (I cringed using that word but whatever!) I take my stationary bag filled to capacity, and on those days when I just can’t seem to get things done, I will pull one out and I will be thankful that at least my pen is awesome!
