Hey my lovelies!
I sent myself off to the shops recently, I’ve decided to finally do some of the things with my house I’ve been wanting to for ages. I got a few little bits and bats to brighten it up too which I wanted to share with you
I got these awesome little storage pots from IKEA to help store my hair accessories in. There’s 3 of the little square pots, 1 large rectangular pot and 1 large square box that fits all the other pots in too, so you could use it for them or as a separate box for stuff to. These have really helped organize my dressing table!
I got this beautiful vase too! I got this from Asda to put in the middle of my new set of drawers in my room (they looked so empty and boring). I love the colour of this vase specifically, it’s lilac but in the sun it’s a chrome/silver it’s gorgeous!!
I’ve got my vase all ready and set for halloween! I got the flowers from my local supermarket, the purple, cream and pale pink colours are just beautiful, I love cabbage roses too so I’m super happy with these! Accompanying the vase and flowers is these awesome skill candles for £2.50 each at Morrisons, they’re not scented but they look epic. You can’t really tell in the light (sorry it was really late!) but they’re like an emerald/black colour.
I LOVE THESE! They’re so good for keeping your bathroom stuff together. The little knit boxes are fab, there’s 1 big square box, 1 big rectangular box and 2 mini square boxes. These are amazing for keeping certain things together and in one place for example I have my everyday skin care and requirements in one, my serums in another, my scrubs in another and my make up wipes and moisturiser and other little bits and bats in another. Definitely a major organization aid!
Secondly I got the matching pouches. These are great for the things you don’t want crowding your sink and bath sides, or ‘go-to’ things you need to hand all the time. I keep these by my sink, as I keep my daily scrub, make up wipes, deep cleanse face wash and daily moisturizer in the little one and all of my skin care aids in the other, like my beloved back scrubber/massager, face exfoliating brush, scrub mitten and sponge mask removers etc in the other. They’re a brilliant help for keeping your things in one place and freeing up other space too 🙂
Boxes: £8 Pouches: £8
All make way for the best cushion I’ve ever seen. (except this christmas one which will be welcomed into my house next month, I can’t cope with how adorable it is!) I got these as accessories for the top of my new set of drawers also. They’re great for this season, but also just as general cushions as the colours could work for fall and for all year round. I love how cuddly they are and over anything 1: PUG, 2: PUG WITH HEADPHONES!, 3: LEOPARD PRINT. I love pugs, can you tell :P. I just love these two cushions and I didn’t feel even slightly bad about the fact that I walked out with the last pug cushion in the shop. He’s mine! Muahahaha.
Hope you liked my little haul, have you been buying any bits and bats to make your home a bit more snug for fall or a bit more scary for halloween?? Tell me all about it!! I’d love to hear 🙂
Much love and kisses to all fellow Pug lovers!
It’s so cold outside! I felt like I had woken up in the Arctic this morning, I couldn’t believe it, getting out of bed was virtually impossible! One of the things I love the most about this coldness is that when you do finally drag yourself out of the bed and race to the hot shower, you can almost get back into a walking bed because of how comfortable your clothes are. Woolly, cable knit, thick, snuggly clothes is what fall is all about, which is evidently the route I went down on this very satisfying little haul I took myself on at the weekend. I desperately needed to re-vamp the comfort zone in my wardrobe, so I went out with my heart set on something along those lines and turned up with these!
Thick knitted oversized cardigan – Primark – £16
I LOVE THIS! Primark has always been a guaranteed bargain as it is but this cardigan is SUPER thick wool knit so it really keeps the warmth in, on the picture the sleeves look very short but because its oversized they fall to about 3/4’s of the way down your arm. The pattern is lovely too, it’s not too in your face it’s still quite subtle and doesn’t have that staple christmassy look so you can wear it what ever time of year if its cold.
High neck aztec detail cami top – H&M – £7.99
This is a really pretty top and could be dressed up or down in spring, summer, fall or winter. The material is super soft but slightly see through so it’s best with a little white cami underneath. It has a beautiful mesh aztec print around the chest area and frill detail around the neck line, with a curved front and straight back. I think this top is so beautiful and looks stunning with a dark blazer and skinny jeans or tucked into a high waisted skirt/trousers with a long jumper/cardigan. You could even wear this for work. I just love it.
Mink grey woolly inside worker boots – H&M – £24.99
Now, I’m a rather large fan of the worker/biker/military boot, but these are just amazing especially for £24.99. The sole of the boot is ridiculously sturdy and thick and they’re fitted perfectly to your foot, so they’re very comfortable. Not to mention the cream woolly inside of the boot for added padding and comfort. They will wear with almost anything and fit tightly round your ankle so I don’t tie the laces, I prefer them looking that way. They have a ‘Timberlandy’ look to them which always wins me over as it is.
Woolly cable knit cream cardigan – Primark – £12
This is so thick and snuggly and comfy and warm and lovely. All the best things in the world. The cardigan wraps itself so tightly around you it’s like you’re being hugged by a wool monster. Really, there’s not much more to say. That cannot be argued with in this kind of weather. It’s a must. For only £12 too!
Pink gold stud and diamond necklace – H&M – £6.99
When I saw this I couldn’t get over the colour and the fact that it would literally go with 1) everything I just bought 2) more a less anything else fall shades related. So it’s a win win situation really. I love the stud vs large diamond detail on it and the fact that they are not an ‘in your face’ kind of size they’re just a lovely noticeable, yet edgy enhancement to what you’re wearing. Personally I think the colour and detail fits in perfect with the season, I couldn’t see it working very well in the summer as much as fall and winter. It’s a really pretty but rough looking piece of jewellery, great for adding a bit of umph to your outfit.
Thick cable knit high waisted skirt – Primark – £8
How cute is this!!!!! This skirt with some tights, knee high brown leather boots, little top and a burgundy cardigan, yippeeeee, sounds like a cold weather wearer to me! I love this skirt so much because it’s got hints of greys in it here and there so it’s not so BAM – LOOK AT HOw WHITE MY SKIRT IS! kind of colour, which means it works really nicely with a range of colours and isn’t limited to certain outfits. I think it’s perfect for looking cute and girly in the chill yet still looking all snug and wrapped up. I can’t wait to wear this skirt, it’ll be fab for dressing it up or down too!
So here’s my little fall haul blog, I’ve really enjoyed writing this one as these kind of clothes are right up my street and I’ve been desperate to grab myself some seasonal snugs. Hope you enjoyed it guys, let me know if there’s anything on here that you liked? Or maybe even own yourself?
I had an epic home haul which yes is massively covered with candles… 😀
So the little bark heart candles are beautiful, the light glistens through the bark and is beautiful they were £3 each, the LOVE sign is £7 and looks gorgeous on the windowsill with the candle in the background I’ve put them around the hurricane candle jar with frosted berry glass, this ones definately staying out for the festive season! I put the beads and pebbles inside myself to give it some life (£1 each). The Wicker jar is lovely and great for carrying round your house, its got a lovely ‘snug home’ feeling to it. The Wicker jar in the back ground which is white with pebbles surrounding the candle is gorgeous, the simplicity of this jar makes it so pretty, this was from an independent shop in Guiseley, Leeds or £19.95. Finally my Pen/pencil holder is actually a toothbrush holder for £3 I love it! I’m a pain when it comes to stationery it takes me ages to find the right things so this find was epic!
All except the white wicker candle holder are from ASDA Living.
The lightshade is from IKEA and also the plant pot, I LOVE THEM! The lamp is £12 and a whole bunch of fun to create (I love making IKEA stuff) with a beautiful modern appearance. I’m a huge fan of these old school plant pots too, they’re £1 each SO cheap and look amazing, I keep my herbs in them in the kitchen, the quirky-ness of it looks great!
My Hello Kitty bin. Quite simply, I LOVE hello kitty, and I think I paid around £6-£8 for this bin. It’s alot bigger than it looks and it’s great, sturdy too, if you’re a Hello Kitty lover this ones definately for you :D.
Mine was from Amazon 🙂
I recently bought these new nail colours and I adore them. They’re beautiful alone or together as a nail art piece. I’m incredibly impressed with the quality of these polishes also, they dry very quickly and look beautiful on, I specifically tried these without a top coat to see how they cope with wear and tear and I have to say they did a pretty good job, they didn’t chip for 3 days.
The pink ones from left to right are: Notting Hill Gate(Neon Shade), South Molton Street, Iyall Mews and Bloomsbury Square(3D Glitter).
Notting Hill Gate and South Molton Street are slightly transparent upon application, they give almost a glazed look, I really love it, however it can appear a standard polish thickness by applying a 3rd coat. Iyall Mews is GORGEOUS! It gives an interesting look as there is so many different shapes and sizes within the bottle and it looks great topping any colour, as its generally a black and white mixture with a hint of pink. The Bloomsbury Square polish always looks stunning, its slightly raised from your nail and in the light shines so many different shades of pink and purple, this looks its optimum with two coats, don’t be fooled by how good one coat looks!
The blue ones from left to right are: St Luke’s Street, Connaught Square (3D Glitter), Kensington Park Road and Cornwall (Feather Effect).
Firstly St Luke’s Square is matte. Yes, matte. I had no idea either. I was kind of annoyed when I realised until I noticed how lovely the dried colour was and it actually is a very pretty colour (if you want it shiny I just use a normal top coat, it looks just as lovely). Connaught Square is glitter shades of turquoise, purple and navy 3D effect. I need to say no more. Kensington Park Road Neon Effect instantly topped the list of all time favourite colour polishes I’ve ever owned. It’s an all year round stunner, you’re nails will categorically not go unnoticed with this beauty covering them. It needs it’s own throne. Finally the Cornwall feather effect, it’s a cute look however I’m not overly convinced about this one, it’s the only polish I bought which I’ve questioned. It looks nice on but you need 2-3 coats on (which after your original 2 is a bit much) for it to look like you’ve not been playing with chopped tinsel whilst painting your nails and it seems to take over your nail, as in there’s no point using it as a top coat as it looks, well, weird. Although on the up side, it’s a great addition to my nail art colours, using it as an effect rather than a coat looks fab, so if you’re going to purchase any of the feather range, I would say to bare in mind it’s not a top coat.
I’m genuinely impressed with these varnishes, Nails Inc. have really stepped up even higher with these little fella’s. Definately worth your consideration ladies!
