Christmas Wish-List 1: The Knope Edition

It’s nearly Christmas….yay. And I do love a good wish list.

If you know me in real life, or indeed twitter-life; you’ll know I’m a massive fan of Parks and Recreation. And I’m still really disappointed that British TV have not picked up Parks and Rec yet so I’ll continue using my US netflix connection. While Ron Swanson is the character with quotability, it’s definitely Leslie that’s captured my heart.  Call me a dreamer with big ideas, but I fancy myself as a bit of a Leslie; just a bit too over-enthusiastic but means well, so I’ve scoured etsy for the all of the Parks and Rec merchandise that I could find and here’s a few things that I would love to find in my christmas stocking:

I moust-ache you a question…

…jeez, I love a good pun. Or a not-so good one really. As it’s the beginning of November, it got me thinking about Mo’vember. Well,  not thinking in depth about it, more like a brief thought. Well, anyway, I am a massive fan of a good beard – “good job really” you might say if you’ve seen Chris. I actually haven’t seen him without a beard, and don’t really want to. Consider this a warning, Howarth. In Sheffield there’s tonnes of beards around though weirdly Chris nearly always manages to spend a portion of a night out talking about his hirsuteness to a group of awestruck 18 year olds. In fact, this weekend we came back to the flat about midnight on Saturday and encountered a group of lads who shouted ‘BEA-RD’ at him numerous times before the lift arrived to zoom us back to the 8th floor; though when we’ve been out in Liverpool we’re always struck by how few beards there are – is this the case, scousers? Are beards not a thing in Liverpool?

Can I use the word ‘beard’ anymore in this post? On that note, I’ll leave you with a few images of my fave beards ( just had to get that one in there….)plus some grooming stuff that the more hirsute amongst us may like. All images via my pinterest board: Beards
