What I've been loving lately...

A clean and tidy room, it's always much more peaceful when there isn't clutter everywhere! Tom bought me this cute little Dachshund print notebook from Tesco, he is almost as bad as me now for spotting sausage related goodies! This Barry M Gelly nail paint in Dragon fruit, looks so nice with a tan
Enjoying long bubble baths with this Strawberry icing scented shower gel smells absolutely gorgeous and was on offer for £1.99 from Tesco, they have tons of other yummy scents too!
I was sent this bag from Marc B and I have used it non stop ever since. I absolutely love the black and gold chain straps, it has three separate pockets, perfect for all of my things (read junk) and I love the leopard print interior, here is the link if you'd like to see it for yourself. What do you think? P.s spot the little sausage on my bed, he knows when I pick my bag up that I'm about to go out!

A mini home-ware haul

I picked up this white lantern whilst tom and I were in Ikea. I'm sure it was around £2.00 (or under) and I couldn't resist, I'm a sucker for having little lanterns dotted around, forever running out of tea lights!

I also bought this a few of these little white pot, it's so pretty, I think it's supposed to be a little plant pot or another candle holder but I'm sure I'll find some uses for them. I am the worst person for buying something because it's small, cute or of course…white / shabby chic looking. I have issues.

This strawberry candle smells absolutely amazing, I haven't had chance to burn it yet so I'm hoping it's still a strong scent whilst burning. There were tons of gorgeous, fruity, summer scents but I didn't know what ikea candles were like, if there any good I will be going back and leaving with a trolley full!

One of these pots I bought, makes a perfect home for these pink and white striped straws I bought from home bargains for just 99p! I absolutely love that shop, its amazing!

Life snippets

I put a box dye on my hair and I was pleasantly surprised with the results. A lazy Sunday evening with Tom, he made me Burritos, they were so gooooood. My new Cath Kidston iPhone case from the ASOS sale (see previous post) isn't it pretty?! A certain sausage wanting in on my Ben and Jerry's Ice cream.. washed down with Crabbies new Raspberry and Rhubarb - amazing. My new pointed classic flats from new look, a wardrobe staple at any time in the year. This shirt from Zara is old, it went a bit raggy in the wash and I'm now desperately on the hunt for a new one that lives up to it's standards. I'm not going to lie black flats, plaid shirts…  *whispers* anyone else slightly pining for crisp autumn days?!

My recent purchases

leopard print sandals

Leopard print heeled sandals - Matalan
These beautiful heeled sandals were an absolute total bargain, at just £7.50 in the sale at Matalan. I think they look like they could be straight off the shelves from Zara. The leopard print part of the sandal has a brushed effect, I absolutely love them! They had tons of sizes left too. So simple and chic.

yankee candle wedding day

Wedding Day Yankee Candle - eBay
I couldn't resist buying this for my cousin as a little gift for her. I gave it to her whilst we were getting ready in the Bridal suite, I'm so glad no one else bought her it. It smells lovely, fresh, with a hint of roses and a touch of vanilla! I love novelty little things like this, why not make the most of occasions!

topshop collarx
Lace collar top - topshop
How gorgeous is this top from Topshop, I love it, it was only £16.00 but it feels and looks a lot more expensive than that, the detailing on the collar and the arms is so dainty and pretty, a summer staple for sure. It also comes in tons of colours I'm so tempted to buy the blush, pastel pink version of this too!
