My Little Favourite Things – A Bundle Of Randoms

Little Favourite Things – Random Crap

Welcome back to Lottie Things, here’s a brand new lifestyle post, all about the little favourite things I am loving at the moment.
These posts are super nosy, and weird, but that’s why I love them! I will always read a ‘what’s in my bag’ or posts about ‘my empties’ I don’t know why, its like a little insider to someone else’s life. I will be making these posts very soon, purely because i like them so much myself…
I can assure you though, they might not be as interesting as others!
We all have our own particular random things that we absolutely love, or have found a new love for recently, and things we use every day. Its time to show these little things some appreciation. Also, I guess the following ‘favourite things ‘could be a pretty good gift idea this Christmas, for anyone!

These are a few of my favourite things:

When the dogs bite, when the bees sting, when i’m feeling sad. I simply remember my favourite things, and then I don’t feel, so bad.
(The Sound Of Music Quote. In case you didn’t already know)

I hope you sang that too. Anyway, back to the content of this post…

  • Aussie – Luscious Long Leave In Conditioner

I honestly use this product everyday. Each time I wash my hair, which is never really, (probably twice a week) I always make sure I spritz this over my head. If you are drying or using heat on your hair, it also protects that too. All of the Aussie products have an amazing scent, and leave your hair feeling (and smelling) amazing. Even if your hair isn’t recently washed, you can spray this on to get rid of whatever smell is lingering about on your head. Its full of wonderful extracts, and no harsh chemicals that would damage your hair.

My bottle is nearly empty, so if anyone is reading this, then – Merry Christmas?

Here are my random favourite things. From clothing, to candles, these can also be great gift ideas for anyone you love. This Aussie leave in conditioner is my life.


  • Apple iPad Air 2

I have only included this into my list, because I do use my iPad every day. I could probably include this in every favourite things post…

This is the best gadget purchase I have probably ever made. I think anyone who uses their phone a lot should invest in an iPad, life just gets so much better, viewing it on a bigger screen.

The iPad makes me feel more productive, there’s nothing more that I love than feeling productive! It does everything I want it to do! I keep my tasks on there, my calendars, all my social medias are so much better to post from on the iPad (except Instagram – make it compatible please Apple).

I have the gold Apple iPad Air 2, i so wanted the pro version, in rose gold, but I changed my mind – you can read about why I decided on the Air 2 and not the Pro here

I have just asked for a new Skinny Dip case for My iPad too, so i’ll show you all when it get it! I super excited..

Here are my random favourite things. From clothing, to candles, these can also be great gift ideas for anyone you love. I couldn't live without my iPad, i take it everywhere!


  • Velvet Top

Velvet is my most recent love. Sean hates it, hates how it looks and feels. But too bad!

I have just purchased myself my first ever velvet item of clothing, and yes, there will be more! I went with this super simple velvet t-shirt. It could be dressed up, or down. I never dress up really, so maybe this will be a casual thing.

The blush pink colour is gorgeous, i’m not a pink kinda person, but i’m starting to be! I have even used this top as the background for my other images in this post. If you didn’t guess that already… I ma so happy how the picture turned out, it does this top so much justice.

It fits just by my hips and a few inches above my elbows, and the top sits nicely on the body. I like how it has movement, and it isn’t too tight.

I purchased this top from New Look, and it was super cheap! The link is here – New Look Pink Crushed Velvet Shirt

Here are my random favourite things. From clothing, to candles, these can also be great gift ideas for anyone you love. My newest obsession is velvet. This pink top is the first of my many purchases.


  • Paper Chase Notebook

This little book is my pride and joy!

I can’t show you what’s inside as there’s all my secrets and ideas in there.


I basically carry this book around everywhere with me, along with a pen. I jot down anything that comes to mind, there’s nothing more annoying than forgetting that great idea you had. Its A5 sized, so not too big for my bag. Although I would like a bigger one, for more detailed notes.

This books is mainly for lists and bullet points. I write anything, from what I need to buy, what i need to remember, to book ideas, and blog posts.

I actually bought this book online from ASOS ages ago, so I don’t think it will still be there. It was on sale for about £3.00 when I got it. Bargain.
The notebook is still on the Paperchase website though, for £6.00. You can find it here – Paperchase Strawberry Notebook

Here are my random favourite things. From clothing, to candles, these can also be great gift ideas for anyone you love. Inside this book are all my secrets and ideas, i carry it around with me, so i never forget a thing.


  • Himalayan Salt Candle Holder

I cannot decide which I love more on this post. Its between the velvet top, and this candle holder. How beautiful is it?

I have two Himalayan Salt candles, and I also have a lamp. One of my candles is kept on my desk, and it makes me feel all calm and ready to do some work.

There’s currently a Yankee Christmas candle in there at the moment, and it smells heavenly, its called Christmas cookies, which is kinda like the vanilla scent, but a little more festive.

Now supposedly these rock candles let of some ions, to balance your positive and negative ions, or something! I fully believe this, probably just because I want too. But its a nice thought. So if you are stressed, or feeling overwhelmed, light up your Himalayan salt candle holder thing, and relax! It also looks extremely aesthetically pleasing. But don’t lick it. I tricked my brother and told him to lick it. Yes it does taste like salt. I guess you could tell whether its real or not by licking it?

Here are my random favourite things. From clothing, to candles, these can also be great gift ideas for anyone you love. Get cosy, and relax with this candle holder.


Thank you so so much for coming back and reading another post of mine. I have recently revamped my blog, it looks a little prettier now.
I want to take new photos and change the rest of my blog to look like these ones, but maybe I will, maybe I wont!
Anyway, I really hope you enjoyed reading this post.

Comment below and tell me what your favourite things are, or if they are the same as mine!
