A few of my favourite things / 10 things I love Thursday…#2

10 things i love Thursday., A Few of my favourite things, Uncategorized

When I first started this particular, regular post here on the blogosphere, it was originally called a few of my favourite things.

That was over in my old space and then since moving to this space here, I thought that it would be quite cool to change it up a bit and call it 10 things I love Thursday.

Now, since I managed to actually migrate all my old works, I find myself in a pickle. I cannot decide whether to call it the same as I did before “a few of my favourite things” or “10 things I love Thursday” I really wanted to keep the regular posting of this to a Thursday so I am still trying to iron out the kinks.

So, enough rambling, let’s get into today’s edition.

  1. Chernobyl.

This series was literally gripping. I watched the entire series in 3 sittings. Chernobyl is infamous for the poorly handled accident, and the devastating effects left behind by the tragedy.

The entire series was absolutely fabulous. The casting was spot on, they were so similar to the actual people involved in the accident. They were also very careful, as far as I can see, and sympathetic towards the incident and were careful not to fabricate too much. If you don’t know about Chernobyl ( do you love under a rock?!) and haven’t seen the series, I suggest you find it….immediately!

2. This is fantastic!

No words needed 😂

3. I also stumbled across a new house for the Addams family….

4. I love graffiti and urban art , (I basically love anything arty or creative, what Ya gunna do?!) These are awesome and super life like… I think it’d make me jump if I came across them anyway !

5. Mind blown people…!

6. Gotta love a quote, and here is one I think anyone who is creative or artistically inclined, will relate to, I know I do 🙋🏻‍♀️

7. Who doesn’t love shoes…. who doesn’t love Disney…. what if I told you, you could own a pair of Disney shoes? BEHOLD….

Irregular choice are my all time favourite shoes in the world, ever! I have a few pairs and I’m pretty sure that it is time for some new ones… wonderland style!

8. Ahhh, baking programmes. I love them. This, however, appeals to me on many different levels, gothic, retro, baking and creating… I love it! The curious creations of Christine McConnell on Netflix, Is my new binge watch while creating 😁

I suggest you go and take a look!

9. Nychos the street artist… enough said I reckon.


Go check him and his crew out, they do some amazing things.

10. The deepest depths of the burrows, is a rabbiteye movement film on youtube and its fantastic. It is one of my favourite YouTube films at the minute and it shows you their trip around America, creating Murals and basically letting us into their world for an hour.


SI’m there we go that is the conclusion of this weeks ten things I love/ a few of my favourite things. I hope that you liked this and stick around for more exciting stuff coming your way.

Till next time,

Big love,

5, Favourite Angora Rabbit.


This is THE fluffiest bunny rabbit I have ever seen. They are Angora rabbits and literally they are balls of fluff!

Heres the story…

The Angora rabbit is one of the oldest types of domestic rabbit, believed to have originated from Turkey. The story goes back to the early 18th century. Some sightseeing sailors were put into a Turkish port, then called Angora. The sailors found the shawls worn by the native women to be remarkable for their beauty, fineness and silkiness. So before the sailors left Angora, they secured some of the Angora rabbits to take back to France. The French claim the Angora rabbits were first recorded in France in the Encyclopedia of 1765. In any event, it was the French who first saw the commercial possibilities of Angora wool and began to manufacture this type of wool into yarn. Aside from their commercial use, the rabbits became popular pets with French royalty and spread to other parts of Europe by the end of the century.

Without further ado, here you go..

The Bungalow of bunnies (click on this and it will take you to their website) is a place in Missouri that raises Purebred Dutch rabbits, and Purebred English Angoras to the ARBA Standard of Perfection. What a job!

You should go and head on over if you’re interested about these breeds of rabbits, as she gives in depth information about them and how to care for them. Its a brilliant site for bunny fans.  They are all adorable, and i want them all!

So there we have it, a complete, fluffy, wintery , Few of my Favourite things. I hope that you enjoyed this, and I hope that you go and check out the websites I’ve listed.

Till next time,

Big love,







A Few of my Favourite things….

A Few of my favourite things


So it’s that time of the week again. Time to settle down with a cuppa and look at some eye and brain candy!

This week I was focusing on artist of all types, and thinking about the different approaches individuals have. The world is full of creative people, and the people I am  including today, are so inspiring and I love their work. I would love for you to check them out further.

So take some time out for yourself, sit back and look at these beautiful works.


O.k so it isn’t “art” like you normally expect, but it is very artistic. Being able to make beautiful cakes and confectionary is a skill in its own right, and i admire anyone who can bake and decorate sweets as beautiful as these. The Juniper cakery is run by two lovely ladies, called Felicity and Krystle. They bake and supply cakes, cupcakes and confectionary, for Hull and the surrounding area. I literally could look (and eat) all of the things that they create. Artists in their own right.

Take a look….

How Beautiful are they? They don’t just do cakes they do sweets, cupcakes,macarons,cookies, and they are all beautiful. Kudos ladies!

You can find them in all the usual places and their website will be up and running soon. In the meantime click on the link to go their instagram.

2. Arozona

Succulents. Who doesn’t love a succulent. Personally, I have a little bit of an obsession with them. So naturally when I stumbled across Arozona on Instagram, I had to indulge myself and found their art stunning, to say the least.

This is an art form close to my heart.

Tattooing is something that i have loved ever since i can remember. I have a fair few myself, and have a few friends in the trade itself. My instagram feed is full tattoo artists and this is one lady who just stands out. Her designs are cute, colourful, quirky and fun. Needless to say she had to be on this list today. I could browse her feed all day.

Dee loves to use inspiration from Japanese anime to 90’s nostalgic cartoons and is also active in the cosplay community.

So there we have it. I just want to say a big thank you to these lovely people for letting me feature them and use their images on my blog.

They have all left me feeling inspired. I am in awe of their originality and creativity. I wish I was as talented.:)
