Day 05 — Your favorite thing to do

Should probably get back to this challenge, I'm unbelievably behind, whoopsy daisy.

Anyway, my favourite thing to do is music. I couldn't just put it down to one thing. Music is one of the things that means most to me. Inside the big music category, I love to play the violin and play in ensembles, I play in 3 ensembles and our girls string quartet. I also love to play duets with my teacher, they're so much fun.

I love playing the guitar which is a more recreational instrument for me as I don't take lessons and it accompanies my singing too. I love to sing as well, I sing in two choirs at school and I honestly think they're pretty fun, especially chapel choir, who cares if the music isn't that cool? I like it.

I also love writing, that's one of the things that I'm proudest of because I never thought I could play guitar, let alone write songs. They're really personal for me and it lets me express things that I never could've said before without being ridiculed or just is like an open diary that is a little less obvious. Also I write songs of my singing with the guitar, just in case you didn't get that. I also love playing covers with my guitar, that's always fun.

And lastly of course, listening to music!

May Wants

Since this month I had a few things that I've been wanting and planning on getting in the future, I thought I might do a May Wants, also inspired by my blog best friend, Molly's blog.

I'm not going to post May Wants as often as May Favourites but if I do have a few distinct things that I've been considering buying the past month and are added to my wish list.

Makeup For Ever Aqua Liner in #11 Diamond Burgundy
I saw Lisa Eldridge use it in one of her previous tutorial's and I thought it was just the most gorgeous colour ever! As Makeup For Ever is not very accessible in Australia, I'm planning on buying it when I go to Hong Kong this Christmas.

Nars Sheer Glow
My semi-formal is in a couple months and I realised that I didn't have a good foundation that didn't have SPF that I can use for taking photos and won't give me a white cast. I also like the fact that it is build able medium coverage. Although I am worried that it might have a really similar finish to my Bobbi Brown Skin Foundation because I don't want to just buy this because it's good for taking photos. 

I was also considering getting a powder that didn't have SPF in it but I think that's just too many because I definitely do not need another powder. I'll just have to use my Inglot Loose Translucent Powder which shouldn't have titanium/iron oxide as it's not SPF although it does have iron oxide in the ingredients, strange?

Makeup For Ever Full Cover Concealer
Ingrid/missglamorazzi on YouTube has been talking about this concealer tons and it looks great! I can't wait to try it out in Hong Kong and I hope that it works well!

Those were the main wants for this month. There were a few other little things that I wanted in the moment but not considering as long term purchase.
