What I'm Loving: January 2014

These are just a few things that have been firm favourites of mine over this last month.



Minimalist Nail Varnish. I love how sophisticated these designs look, and the fact that they work on shorter nails as well as on longer nails. Even though I'm a complete doofus when it comes to painting my nails, I'm sure even I could manage these. And yes, I did just say doofus in 2014. These also look really quick to do as well; maybe a quick base coat, but then just a simple line on each fingernail.

Cloud Atlas. I finished reading Cloud Atlas recently (a bit slow on the uptake, I know), and it blew me away. I read it in about a week, and it might even be my favourite book of all time. Which is a tough thing for me to say, as I loathe to pick a favourite book, but if I had to, then this would be it. It's impossible to say in which genre to class it, as it somehow manages to encompass many varying genres all at once. I just can't recommend this book enough. Should I see the film? I definitely need some more Cloud Atlas in my life, but I just know that the film wouldn't live up to my expectations.

Elbow - Fly Boy Blue/Lunette. I'm really liking this song at the moment, but then again Elbow have yet to make a song I don't like. This one took a while to grow on me, but now I'm a little (read: very) obsessed. Not full blown Seldom Seen Kid obsessed, but very nearly. The new album The Take Off and Landing Of Everything drops in early March, and I can't wait. Until then, I'm very satisfied with this offering. Lunette is particularly lovely.

What have you been loving this January?

  1. I wish I were any good at minimal nail art! or any nail art for that matter.
