Non-Beauty Favourites #1

Sooo I sometimes forget that I'm actually allowed to write about non-beauty/fashion related things on my own blog! Lol. After all, this is a lifestyle blog aswell, and I absolutely love reading other peoples posts about their favourite TV programmes etc. So here are my current non-beauty faves...

Non-Beauty Favourites #1 | raspberrycheeks
TV Programme(s)

Game of Thrones - The Hubby and I always like to have a series or 2 on the go and we have just finished watching Season 3 of Game of Thrones and I think it might actually be my favourite TV show EVER! I know, bold words! If you like fantasy mixed with a bit of blood, guts, backstabbing & tyranny then this will be right up your street. It's quite complex and requires FULL attention (no phones/laptops) as there are so many different characters and parts of the story to keep up with. It's just the most gripping TV show I've ever watched and I can't wait for Season 4 next month. Although we don't have Sky Atlantic at home so who knows what we're gonna do!

"Drinking and lust , no man can match me in these things. I am the god of tits and wine"
- Tyrion Lannister

Gossip Girl - I was browsing through Netflix one afternoon while George was having his nap, and I noticed that they had the complete box set of Gossip Girl on there - something I'd never watched even though I always wanted to. I put it on and I've been hooked ever since. Obviously I'm still only on Season 1 so please please don't tell me anything!

- Gossip Girl

Birdy (both albums) - I love this girl's voice! She's only 17 and is such an amazingly talented singer/songwriter. Both albums are beautifully written and I can't get enough at the moment. I urge you to check her out!


Cadbury's Mini Eggs - Need I say more? I think I have some sort of serious addiction!! In my defence, they're only available around spring/easter so I need to make the most!


Autumn Leaves

Obviously there are a lot of blogs I follow on bloglovin, but there are some that really stand out and that I find myself getting lost in. Rebecca's blog, Autumn Leaves is one of them. I just love how well written her posts are and the attention to detail is wonderful. Her blog has really took off and is constantly growing and gaining followers and it's because of the huge amount of effort she puts in to every single one of her posts. Keep it up Rebecca, your blog is fab!! x



Again, I am subscribed to quite a few YouTube channels and I watch their videos religiously. I recently discoverd Gabriella from VelvetGh0st and I've been absolutely loving her videos - especially her makeup tutorials. (I'm a sucker for a good makeup tutorial vid!). Gabriella is so down to earth and not to mention stunningly gorgeous with possibly the whitest smile I've ever seen! Her videos are so funny and she does her makeup beautifully! I just wish I had the guts (& equipment) to do the same!! Check out her channel here and show her some support! x


So there's my current non-beauty related favourites. Hope you liked them and I hope I managed to introduce you to some new faves!
What have you been loving recently?
