Five Things & Five Blogs I Love | #9


Penguin Little Black Classics
To celebrate the 80th anniversary of Penguin books they have released a selection of classic titles at just 80p each. It was everything I could do to avoid buying the full set, but I settled on 10 and I'm certain I'll be collecting a few more very soon. I thought for 80p that they would be stapled leaflet-y type things, but they're proper books just in miniature form. Very sweet and a great way to dabble in some classic works.

Believe by Mumford & Sons
I'm not the biggest fan but their new song has been in my head for a solid two days and it hasn't reached annoying levels yet. The video is also strangely hypnotic, in fact I think I like the video more than I like the song. 

Flamingo Candles
Turns out they really are as brilliant as everyone says! 

Minimal Make Up
All that I'm missing is the perfect light coverage foundation. I'm thinking of perhaps trying the NARS Tinted Moisturiser, but if you have any recommendations I'd love to hear them.  

Bath Bombs
I usually stick to bubble bath, but I've had a few bath bombs recently and really loved them. Watching them fizz away is really quite lovely and I must say that coloured water somehow make baths even more relaxing.

  14. I didn't hear "Believe" until just now! The music video is just as captivating as the song. I'm a new follower of Notes from Joana, thanks for the share :) I'm hoping to just chill this weekend, catch up with the blogosphere, and do some readings for class. Last weekend my friend from high school came over to visit, and that was a lot of fun! -Audrey | Brunch at Audrey's
