26 favourite things

I just turned 26 on the 28th of August, and thought of creating a blog post to share 26 favourite things, including natural beauty and skin care products, self care ideas and a couple more favourite things I love, appreciate a lot, or often use and I hope noting the favourite things could be uplifting or helpful for you 🕊🌸 it is early spring in New Zealand (where I am from) and the weather is a bit warmer and there are quite a lot of spring blossoms, flowers and daffodils flowering in gardens. Here are a couple of favourite things, including natural beauty and skin care, self care ideas, animals, books and more and please note the favourite things noted are in no particular order 🌸
