I apologise for the radio silence around these parts last week. The combination of Tuesday’s election result and being hit with a nasty cold meant that I really just didn’t feel like putting pen to paper. I thought the best way to ease us back into the real world was to round up some lovely things. I think we could all use some lovely things on this grey Monday morning, right?
Let’s start with my current nail polish obsession, Essie’s All Tied Up. A dusty rose pink with a hint of golden sheen, it’s the perfect non-traditional autumn pick. It’s one of those colours that instantly makes me feel put together and polished, and it goes with pretty much everything! I’m on my third at home mani of this shade in a row, and I love it!
As the temperature has finally dropped on the south coast, I’ve been drinking more and more tea. I’ve reignited my love for the Teapigs Winter Spiced Tea, and it’s not going anywhere any time soon. In the spirit of tea drinking, I didn’t feel too bad for picking up a new mug! The Starbucks Christmas collection dropped into stores this month and oh-my-god I want all of them. For now I settled on this pretty pink and gold number, which just speaks to my soul. It’s the perfect size for my afternoon brew!
I needed a little cheering up at the end of last week, so I had a Tom Haverford Treat-Yo-Self moment in Oxford at the weekend. After years of lusting after The White Company’s Winter Candle, I took advantage of the storewide 20% off to finally pick one up! I’m saving the first burn for after my surgery Wednesday as a little treat, so I have something to look forward to!
I’ve not been wearing a ton of makeup recently, but day to day I’ve been wearing the Rimmel Fresher Skin Foundation. I love this, it’s so light on the skin and comfortable to wear, but it evens things out and makes the skin look healthy & glowy.
Normal service will resume tomorrow, but in the meantime, I’d love to know what things you’re loving right now! Let me know in the comments.
