Making Popcorn

Popcorn is a guilty pleasure of mine. It's definitely one of my favourite snacks, and I always have a good selection of it at home. I also love making my own. Listening to it pop in the microwave is one of my favourite sounds - it's such a satisfying noise!

I recently got this from Qwerkity and it's been in constant use. It's so easy to use. There's a measuring cup, which you fill with the corn. Then you pour them into the bowl and just microwave for a few minutes. Easy!

The great thing about this is that once the popcorn is popped, the bowl is also a popcorn bowl, so you can just grab it and eat straight from it. This is what I did on Saturday night, where I watched the 2nd Hunger Games in prep for the new one - which I still need to watch.
The Qwerkity site has loads of great little pieces, that would make perfect presents for the likes of Secret Santas, Stocking Fillers and gifts for men.

Rain and Darkness

It is either really rainy or really dark these days. Or both! It makes taking nicely shot outfit pictures a lot harder and I sometimes feel myself deciding to match the weather and just wear dark colours.

I find that lighter shades of blue let me add in more colour but in a much subtler way. I can pair it was darker colours and I feel like I've brightened up my day, even in a little way. And then job done with a colourful statement necklace.

I also got to take my new headphones out for a spin this weekend.They're Monster headphones, and part of the iSport Intensity range. Oh and they're also a fabulous bright pink. These ones were actually released for Breast Cancer Awareness month, hence the colour, and £5 of each sale are still being donated to Breast Cancer Care.

They're actually a fantastic pair of headphones. The sound quality is amazing, and they're secure. This means you can work out all you want, while the SportClip and eartip remain in your ears.

If you have a music lover in your life, or are a music fan yourself, you definitely need to get yourself over to the MusicRoom site. Whether it's a quirky stocking filler you're looking for for your Secret Santa's or want to get something for the musician in your life, this is the site for you.

The website has a lot of really fun and unique stuff. The bookends and Marshall Headphones are definitely added to my wishlist. And the kettle is the cutest! Any musician will also love the music related jewellery.

They also have a Gift Finder online app, which has just launched, aiming to help you get what you want. It searches instruments, music, books, clothes and other gifts for whoever you want. The app looks like an amp, with dials helping you customise the perfect present.
