A Few of My Favourite Things

I was reading the lifestyle and entertainment magazine that accompanies our weekend newspaper. The last item in this magazine always features a famous person sharing a list of things they cannot live without and why. It got me thinking - what would be my list of favourite things? I should also explain that when I say "things", I am referring to inanimate objects. People - family and friends - go without saying.

In no particular order, here are my top ten favourite things:

1. Photographs 
Visual record of our memories and experiences, capturing those precious moments in time. 

2. Passport 
I have traveled since I was a child and it's just simply part of my DNA.

3. Books 
These are truly like old friends - interesting, emotional, funny, familiar, comforting and treasured.

4. Food 
My other love. I live to eat.

5. Exercise
Technically an activity, but I do use things to do it. It's my routine, my challenge, my stress-buster and my achievement. I also do it so I can indulge in my other love (see previous item). I like to think of it as maintaining equilibrium :)

6. Beauty Products
I am unashamed to say that I like having moisturiser, make-up and a hairdryer in my life. Why is wanting to look your best sometimes considered to be "high maintenance"? Looking good (in whatever way you define this) is something you do for yourself because you believe you're worth it.

7. iProducts
This is all about connections for me. My iPhone, iPad and MacBook help keep me connected whether it's for work or for play.

8. Music
It makes my spirit soar. I will (and often do) sing out loud and dance like no one's watching. 

9. Wardrobe
There's nothing like a gorgeous dress paired with great heels to make you feel feminine, sexy and simply fabulous.

10. Engagement and Wedding Rings
Represent something that is one of a kind, even more valuable and absolutely priceless.

What about you? What are the things that you simply cannot live without and would make the cut on your list of favourite things?
