Anthropologie Hair Ribbons

DSC06599

Anthropologie is one of those stores I can just spend hours in, I love the mix of clothes, accessories and home wear, and although it felt like I was only pottering around in there for ten minutes, it turned out I’d been in there for over an hour!

One of the (many) goodies I ending up leaving with were these gorgeous hair ribbons. It’s probably not news that I’m more than a little obsessed with this style of hair tie, but I don’t have anything like these.

They came in a pack of three, and they are just so pretty and sparkly – seriously, I don’t think I’ve purchased anything remotely similar since I was about eight!

Since I’m usually pretty conservative in my clothes and jewelry, I think these will be gorgeous in the summer!

The hair ties were priced at £22 but don’t seem to be available online.

Lust List: Smythson iPad Case

Panama_14SSS57P03VA_s1

One of the things I’ve promised myself this year is that I’m going to take better care of my tech things. In the past year I smashed the front and back of my phone, cracked my iPad and spilt a liter of hot apple cider over my little laptop. (Yes, I’m a mess). (more…)

Nails Inc Gel Effect Nail Polish Mayfair Lane*

I’m slap bang in the middle of a love affair with nudes. Lipglosses, nail polishes, tops, bags, anything I can get that’s nude I have. I’m currently completely in love with Nails Inc’s Mayfair Lane. (more…)

I adore makeup palettes, and I’m in love with Laura Mercier products, so you can imagine how excited I got when I heard there was a new palette for the brand’s Spring Renaissance collection launching exclusively with Selfridges this month. (more…)

Alexander McQueen Velvet Slippers*

DSC04282

I’ve really gotten into smoking slippers over the past year. They’re a little more formal than my beloved ballet flats, and I love the luxurious finishes they tend to come in. After starting 2013 with none, I’ve suddenly found myself the proud owners of three pairs now (click to see my Valentinos, and my other McQueens). I couldn’t resist when I saw these gorgeous ones on the Selfridges website. The navy velvet is absolutely to die for, and I am in love with the embroidered skulls. I’ll be wearing mine with skinny jeans the moment the weather clears up!

I’m of the opinion, that blush matters even more in the winter than it does in the summer.

Gift Guide: Laura Mercier Creme Brulee Body & Bath Quartet*

DSC03073

I first fell in love with Laura Mercier‘s Creme Brûlée fragrance when I was about 14 or 15. It just felt so grown up and glamorous. Every time I walked past the Laura Mercier concession in Harvey Nicks I smothered myself in the body butter and wafted around for the rest of the day.  (more…)

I am, what someone could fairly describe as a sunglasses snob. There is really nothing like a good pair to jazz up an outfit or make a rough day at least look better. (more…)
