The Five ‘WOW’s

When I was a kid I would see my dad once a week on a Friday. He would pick me up in the car and during the journey he would always ask me the fateful question, “What are your top five ‘wows’?
As a 25 year old woman I can see he meant no harm and that he really just wanted to be caught up on the week he’d missed out seeing his daughter, however as an 8 year old girl with many issues it always upset me. As my ‘wow’s at the time were something like ‘Ronan Keating’ (Boyzone) etc I always got a decent amount of stick for the things I was into back then.
But as times change and we grow up (both myself and my dad!) I quite like the idea of the five ‘wow’s and next time I see my dad I’m going to ask him what his five ‘wow’s are ;) I’ll let you know how that pans out!!

Macaroon Coin Purse Tutorial

This ‘wow’ literally made me say “WOW” out loud. These little guys are so dainty and so exquisite, yet with my little patience and love/hate relationship with sewing I think it’s totally doable. The images are very helpful and informative and the steps are simple. I’m in love!

Grandma Pheeple by Rebecca’s Emporium

The lovely Rebecca of Rebecca’s Emporium posted this on her Facebook page the other day and I am in total awe!! It looks so much like my Grandma and I’m sure it’s the same with yours too! :DD

Three Mobile

A couple of weeks or so ago I finally faced the fact that I was desperate for a new phone. I found an excellent deal for O2 customers, but in the end found that the offer was only to new customers and they wouldn’t match the deal for existing customers (ugh!). TheArchdeacon found this really great contract with Three Mobile, but the more I researched and asked around the more confused I got. Three have a pretty bad rep for network availability and customer service, however I finally decided to take the plunge and so far I only have really awesome things to say. I’ve had to ring customer services a few times RE: delivery and number change but the advisors have been clear, helpful and polite and as for the network service, it’s only dropped inside WH Smith in the city centre and I don’t tend to hang out in there ;) A WOW goes to them, hope they keep it up!

Little Tokyo, Leeds

I’ve started craving for meals out this past week or so. TheArchdeacon and I never really had date night as we both like to stay in, put our jim-jams on and watch Psych a DVD. I think things are changing a little now, mostly because I seem to be less in debt and free to be able to treat myself to a dinner or two and not feel guilty. Well I’m still working on that last part ;) Little Tokyo is a wonderful restaurant down a backstreet in Leeds. From the outside it doesn’t look like much, but inside the decor is stunning, yet relaxing and the food is such a treat. Hello Tempura Avocado.

Cory Chisel and The Wandering Sons, Old Believers

Words cannot express how gorgeous this album is, although I’m going to try writing my first album review soon. Listening to it is like having an old friend over. Final WOW goes to Cory :))

So come on, what are your top five wows this week?

Loves x xx

    Arrw, I love the idea of the 5 WOWs! :) I might ask Lewis when I get home tonight and see what he says. (I’ll bet you anything bacon will be one of them ;D )
    Thank you so so much for including my little Gramma Pheeple in your 5 WOWs! :)
    I feel completely honoured seeing her between those AMAZING purses and the iPhone! :) Thank yoooou!
    I might have a go at my own 5 wows now :) … hmmm *ponders*

    What a great idea! Those purses are so cute and I love Rebecca’s Pheeple! I may go and have a listen to Cory et al, hadn’t heard of them before.

    P.S. I think we would have been friends as 8 year olds. I was also embarrassed by my affection for Mr Keating :)

  • Sophie

    Hehe, bacon is a good WOW!
    And you’re welcome! I literally “wow-ed” when I saw it on Facebook and got all giddy and showed Boyfriend! Hehe.

    So… where are your five WOWs?

  • Sophie

    Thanks! I’d pass it on to my dad, but his head is already big enough ;)
    YES. Listen to Cory, his music will soothe you! It’s great to listen to while working, give me a happy heart! Would love to know what you think :))

    Ah, Mr Keating! I found myself wailing along to one of the three songs of his I have on my iTunes last night! I must dig out my old albums and reminisce.

    Yes – this is well worth resurrecting. Here’s my somewhat tardy contribution:

    1) The opening 20 seconds to ‘Ok Ok’ by Smoke & Jackal. One of the greatest starts to a song I’ve ever heard. Closely followed by the opening minute to ‘Bellbottoms’ by the John Spencer Blues Explosion.
    2) The interview with Sir Patrick Moore in Dec 2012’s The Chap magazine (just before he died). What a paragon of chivalry.
    3) Playing news as a card game… I will explain more over Chrimbo.
    4) Doing 10 pull-ups in a row for the first time. Bangarang!
    5) The Back to the Future trilogy. Because it should be in everyone’s top five wows, every single time.

    A good selection, especially after further knowledge of points 1 & 3! As for 5… word.
