Favourites Friday #7

I've not done a Favourites Friday in over two months (sorry), which has basically given me enough time to have a complete taste refresh, let alone for a few new things to slip their way onto my list. My favourites posts seem to be pretty big hits, so I thought I'd compile another while whilst having a little break from crazy assessment time at uni. Enjoy!

1 - EXO's discography (Korean versions, clockwise from top left): Mama, Overdose, XOXO (Repackage) and Love Me Right - Regular readers of this blog will know that I'm pretty into K-Pop and that doesn't look like it's going to change any time soon. I'd been listening to some of the "hits" of the genre for a few years, but I'd never delved into one particular groups discography... until EXO.  A lot of their songs are upbeat and exciting, plus their choreography is great and they all seem like very sweet and talented guys. Very easy to love.

2 - OPI Nail Lacquer in Big Apple Red - With summer approaching (faster than I'd like), it's also time to start painting my toenails again. I love nothing more than a good, classic red pedicure. It's classy and it makes me feel like my feet aren't weird and gross. I need an endless supply of red nail polish, I'm telling you.

3 - The Amazing Book Is Not On Fire by Dan Howell & Phil Lester - I've not really read any books by YouTubers before this one, but I had to make an exception for Dan and Phil. And I'm glad I did, because I loved it. They're not trying to tell their entire life stories or make a profound statement, they're simply sharing the things that they like and think that their readers will like too. It made me laugh out loud multiple times, and anything that does that earns a permanent place in my heart.

4 - Swing Shift Dress in Red Petals from Jay Jays - I wasn't expecting much when I walked into my local Jay Jays store, but oh boy did this beauty catch my eye. The shape is flattering, it has a floral print, and it's black, white and red - all of my favourite things. Plus it's super light, making it perfect for the unbearable heat of summer.

5 - Casmir Sandals in Nude Scratched from Rubi Shoes - Yes, for once I branched out and bought shoes that aren't black. These sandals have such a simple design with gold hardware and I knew that I had to own them from the second I saw them. I have a feeling I'll be wearing them around a lot. Unfortunately, they're no longer available on the website, but maybe if you cross your fingers...

6 - EXO Next Door - This one obviously fits in with my first favourite, but you don't have to like that one to enjoy this! EXO Next Door is a short Korean drama starring none other than the boys from EXO themselves, and is about a single, somewhat awkward girl that discovers that they've moved in next door to her. You don't have to love EXO, K-Pop, or K-Dramas to like this. It's so sweet and funny and pleasantly surprising. Plus the episodes are really short, so chances are you'll fly through it and then wish there was more.

That's it for another Friday! I hope you liked this set of favourites and you'll check some of them out!
