the lust list #2

A. OPEN HEART OIL BURNER £6.99: I'm an absolute candle addict and have my eye on trying out yankee candle wax tarts and thought this little oil burner would be perfect to pop them in. 

B. AMPERSAND PHONE CASE £20: I'm not typically a phone case girl and seem to spend forever finding one that looks minimal and chic, the style of this one is just to my taste and would look great on my white iphone.

C. ASPINAL COIN PURSE £55: This little heart coin purse is absolutely adorable and would make the perfect valentine's gift (to yourself).

D. TAI CRYSTAL BANGLE £32: I've been lusting after a simple, delicate gold bangle for ages and fell in love with this one once I spotted it. They come in different colours of crystal too and will be perfect with tanned skin once the summer comes back around.

E. KATE SPADE COBBLE HILL CLARKE HANDBAG £178: I seem to have developed a crazy obsession for designer handbags lately and this one is next on my list to buy, click on the link to see better pictures and I guarantee you will be wanting it too.

F. NIKE AIR FORCE 1 TRAINERS £62: As much as I love dainty jewellery and expensive handbags, I am a bit of a tom boy at heart and get just as much joy out of a new pair of trainers. These would be perfect for daytime casual wear with black leggings and an oversized tee.

new favourite things #1

Apologies for the uninspiring title of this post but that's pretty much all I could come up with for this kind of post. I've been lusting after getting myself a rebecca minkoff mini mac handbag for quite a while now and finally decided on the black version with rose gold hardware. It cost £39 to have it shipped over from america including customs charges and taxes which I didn't find too off-putting for an investment piece. It's an absolute beauty and the perfect size for everyday use, I much prefer to only carry around essentials in a small handbag when it comes to going shopping or into college.

I rarely ever venture into Primark due to the sheer manic atmosphere in there but a few days ago I went in and picked up these wildfox-esque ice cream t-shirt (£5) and beverly hills sweater (£12).

I got this grey felt watch organiser drawer insert (£10) recently from ebay and have found that it fits absolutely perfectly into my ikea alex unit, I have quite the growing watch collection so this is perfect to store them all away neatly.

I popped into a local gift store recently and spotted this plastic fawn lunchbox, cadbury vintage style tin and blue swallow jewellery dish. I thought the tin would be perfect to use as a brush holder and the little lunchbox was just too sweet to resist. 

For a fair few years I've been on the hunt for the perfect pair of gold aviator sunglasses which is why I was thrilled to have received this beautiful pair from maui jim (£235). I'm going to feature them in an outfit post very soon so do keep your eyes peeled for that if you want to see how they look on.

I got this beautiful dogeared inital necklace for christmas and have been wearing it almost every day since. It's rare for initial necklaces to have a typeface that I'm keen on which is why I love this version so much, it's so dainty and delicate looking too.
