No, not raindrops on roses or whiskers on kittens. Although I do love whiskers on kittens.
Here are a few of my favourite things, collected over the last month or so. A less rage-inducing ‘haul’ post, if you will.
I love the colour of this polish – a deep, rich burgundy with a high gloss finish. Plus, the little Chanel pot makes me feel so fancy. Sadly, it chips like a bitch and no top coat can redeem it. Sob.
Knomo leather iPad case (c/o) | Primark beaded necklace
This beautiful pink leather iPad case was sent to me by knomo – it’s such a delicious shade of raspberry and far too pretty to be used solely for technology. I’ve taken it out as a clutch a few times and it’s the perfect size for all my evening essentials.
The beaded collar necklace was a fantastic £6 Primark find and I wear it almost daily. It adds just the right amount of ostentatious bling to any outfit.
Joules Animal Print Jumper (c/o) | Zara knitted beanie
This adorable reindeer jumper deserves a whole post of its own (non-tacky Christmas jumper, anyone?) but I’ve been wearing it constantly in an attempt to inject some festive cheer into my life, so it deserves a mention here.
The Zara knitted beanie was an impulse purchase but has kept my hair neat and tidy in the face of Yorkshire’s delightful winter weather… a winner.
Bobbi Brown Rich Lip Colour in Crimson | Khiel’s lip balm (c/o)
Dark, berry shades are my favourites at the moment and this creamy Bobbi Brown lipstick is top of my list. It’s slightly gothic but makes a real impact when worn with flicky liquid liner.
The Khiel’s lip balm is a little wonder – it’s been keeping my lips soft and smooth despite gale force winds and drying central heating.
Last but not least is this sweet 60s Kodak I picked up at a car boot the other week. It came in a cute leather case and now sits on display in my living room. I’m developing a bit of a ‘thing’ for old cameras – they’re much more visually appealing than modern ones!
Have you picked up anything pretty this month?
