Favourite Things

 (Lipstick and Lipstick case: Paul and Joe Cosmetics available from ASOS)

Let's get real, Paul and Joe do the prettiest make up. Without a doubt. I mean, wrap your eyes around this beauty. Granted it would be a crime to use it and smoosh the cat face but it is pretty great regardless. Everything about their products are beautiful and kind of over the top, basically all of their products are in my ASOS wishlist. Oh, if you do buy a lipstick you have to buy the case separately, which may be a bit cheeky but there is a great cat one available too.


Finally sorting out my room at home. After moving back home after University for my job the only concern I really had was fitting all my stuff that had comfortably embellished a flat squeezing into my much smaller teenager room. I lived for two weeks in a Health and Safety man's nightmare, but I finally got round to sorting it out. I am terrible with any flat surface, it becomes covered in minutes. Here we have a forever rose from a former boyfriend which doggedly outlived mine and his relationship, a handmade teddy, an awkward photo booth strip taken with my sister in an Airport in Hawaii and swarovski crystal animals including a squirrel and dog. And look, there is a good three inches of space at the front which I could fill yet. God, I have a lot of stuff...

(Silk Shirt: H&M Trend/ Premium)

Oh look, work clothes, exciting. I thought this was pretty though, I was determined to buy stuff that was multi-use and could be worn casually as well as at work. This shirt is 100% silk and was a very reasonable £30 I think. It is very well made and I really enjoy it's minty goodness. 

Right, now I need to figure out my first day at work outfit!


With love from,

    1. You should do it! They are pretty, ASOS have discount codes all the time which takes the sting out slightly!

  2. I'm such a hoarder so I'm the same, all flat surfaces are covered in things I just can't quite get rid of and it really kills my obsessively neat side xo

    1. Oh, congratulations of your new flat though. How exciting! You'll be so happy having the space just how you like it! Uniforms can make it easier if you have to wake up early, no fussing over what to wear!

  14. I'm not sure if this is my terrible memory playing up again, but you have a new job? Congratulations! I hope your first day goes fabulously :) I love your minty green shirt - it's the kind of thing I could just hang on the wall and look at endlessly adoring the colour (sad, I know!). I love the look of your room - I'm the same with covering surfaces. There's always so much more stuff to find a space for, and at the moment I still have a desk/wardrobe at my mum's house. God knows where all that stuff is going to go if I ever need to move it before I own a house to fill up! Paul & Joe is the best, I don't own any of it but my Asos wishlist is the same! xx

    1. Yes, new job! Real lady job. Life seems weird now. Well I would do exactly the same for your TBA dress, it is a beaut, so that makes us both weird. I have decided I just need to buy a house to move all my stuff into, it is the most obvious choice! I want to try a few more bits of it! It is just so pretty to be true.

  16. I LOVE THAT SHIRT. Can you just post it to me instead of keeping it for yourself? Cheers. It took me until Christmas to unpack properly after I moved home after uni, so I am very impressed with your speed. xx

    1. Haha, we can work out some kind of agreement Alice. It can live with you monday-wednesday, spend its thursday in the post and I get it friday-sunday? Maybe we should just share wardrobes! Thank you!! Can you be my mum? Let's solve the wardrobe issue and this and just live together. Deal?
