How much do you dislike the title of the infamous ‘haul’ post? Hopefully as much as me. Perhaps it’s because I can’t relate to these big shopping sprees – I much prefer to spend my hard earned money on things a little more special than the entire contents of Topshop (although, I totally would if I could). So, I suppose this is my version. A few of the things that I’ve been appreciating most lately, ranging from make-up to music…
Beau & Arrow Bunny Earrings
I don’t think these need any explanation. All my favourite pieces of jewellery are animal themed! These little rose gold bunnies are perfect for animal lovers. Beau & Arrow also have a hummingbird ring in their range which is on my wishlist, as if I could do with any more critters to add to my menagerie!
YSL Rouge Volupte
I bought this lipstick in the shade Faubourg Peach quite some time ago, but I’ve only started wearing it now my obsession with ’60s beauty has flared up again. It’s quite a light shade, but pairing it with white eyeliner and a big black flick is the ultimate combination. It’s a very silky, glossy lipstick, and it’s sheer enough that you can build up the colour. Plus, the it’s probably the prettiest thing in my make-up bag!
I had the pleasure of meeting Geneva of A Pair and a Spare just once whilst she lived in London (we went out for a Mexican as far as I can remember!), but have closely followed her blog ever since, awe-struck at the wonderful DIY projects she conjures up. And what’s better is now they are all in one place, as she has a released a book full of projects that range from reworking dresses to embellishing collars. I’ve not had a chance to give any of the DIYs a go as of yet, but I’ll report back as soon as I do!
You’ve seen these pretties pop up in a few other posts but they deserve their own special mention. I think I first caught sight of them on Pinterest, after that they were added to my Birthday wishlist and on August 31st, thanks to my parents, they were mine. Mwahaha! I’d been too precious to wear them outside until last weekend in Paris where they had their first outing. The perfect backdrop, don’t you think?
Arcane Roots & Antlers
Y’all know I harp on about my favourite band Arcane Roots enough, but they’ve just released a song from their upcoming album and I couldn’t be happier (another track I can listen to on repeat, hooray!). If you like good music, I urge you to download the new song for free on their website. I like to think I’m giving you a gift, that’s how good they are! You’re welcome ; )
And my last favourite thing of the moment is my deer brooch, paired with the first item I bought from ASOS Marketplace since starting work there. It was a mere £5.00 in the sale from The Ragged Priest Vintage. I do love a good bargain! x
