A Few of My Favourite Things
The new season calls for a new set of favourite things, my tastes and obsessions change regularly, usually depending on the weather and how it affects my outfit or beauty routine so here are a few of my favourite things...
Let's start with a little appreciation for oversized knitwear. How easy is it to throw on a giant jumper, a pair of super thick tights and some ankle boots? Pretty much effortless, but looks spot on for autumn. The above is a shot of my Firetrap jumper c/o USC, it's my fave.
I've been looking for the perfect nude shade of nail polish for months and have been through quite a few different options but Essie in 'Lady Like' ticks all of the boxes, it's the ideal shade and one coat lasts a full week without chipping (unless you let a teething baby gnaw on your nails as I did at the weekend...) when combined with the Essie All in One glaze. I picked up both at Professional Beauty North last month and I just wish I'd picked up more!
Rejoice! It's that time of year when slipper socks are completely acceptable of a night time, say hello to my absolute favourites by Bedroom Athletics, they are perfect for wearing with an over-sized shirt for chilly autumn evenings. Take a look at them here.
I usually survive on a very restricted beverage diet that is just water and wine, but recently I've been introducing a few herbal teas in there too thanks to Discount Supplements sending me a couple of boxes of Yogi Tea to try out, my favourite is the Cranberry Hibiscus flavour, it has helped to soothe my throat while I had the flu. Dream.
One of my favourite things is snuggling up under a blanket with a copy of Vogue, in fact, that's what I'm doing right now while writing this post. I have a subscription thanks to Magazine.co.uk
so I don't even have to go to the shop for one of my favourite treats! A subscription would make the best gift this Christmas. My mum got me a subscription to Women's Health last year and it's been like another present every month when it arrives!
How awesome are these? We were invited to a House of Vans dinner a few weeks ago and everyone who attended got a pair of personalised Vans. I'm kind of obsessed with things with my initials on at the moment so these were right up my street. Next stop, monogrammed dressing gowns for Joe and I, aka, the dream.
What are your favourite things at the moment?
