It’s the middle of the month, yet I feel compelled to do a ‘February Favourites’ video. Since I traditionally film these videos at the end of each month, I thought I would keep the tradition and wait to film my February Favourites (as there’s still 14 more days to make new favourites!) However, in the mean time I thought it would be nice to take some photos of the things I’m loving at the moment and show you guys here on my blog.
I love that I take completely different photos with my Fujifilm Instax Mini camera to any other cameras I use, whether it’s my iphone, DSLR or vlog camera. I feel like I take photos that mean more to me and really capture the moment when I use this camera. It’s also quite wonderful to be able to have an instant photograph you can actually hold in your hand.
I bought this sparkly bracelet a long time ago from J Crew (I think it was when I was in LA and my friend Ingrid had just introduced me to the shop). I’ve recently been reaching for this bracelet almost every day to add a little sparkle to my typical daily attire – cashmere jumper, leather leggings and ankle boots. It just makes me happy every time I wear it!
I’m currently a quarter of the way through The Goldfinch by Donna Tartt and I think it’s incredible. I can’t review it properly until I finish it (maybe it’ll be in my Feb Faves video where I can talk about it in more depth!) but I will say that it’s extremely gripping and I’m really enjoying seeing the characters evolve and wondering what will happen next.
Oh my goodness I am obsessed with these doughnuts! If it’s time for a sweet treat then these are exactly what I will go for at the moment. I first discovered Dum Dum Donutterie back in October last year when Jim got me some to say well done on my lash launch for my makeup line, I had the creme brulee and was amazed at the yumminess. The other day I popped in and got these beauties for a meeting – how cute is the little ‘I <3 U’ one?!
I bought these Helmut Lang boots in the sale in New York. I’m one of those people who is terrible at shopping as I can never be bothered to try anything on! However, I was in New York with the shopping King and Queens (yes, multiple Queens) Jim and his two sisters Sam and Nic, and his mum, Judy. We had spent an hour in Helmut Lang already and just as we were leaving Nic tried these boots on in grey and we all oohed and ahhed at how great they looked. Sam proceeded to find them in my size in black (as I had said I was after a black heeled pair of ankle boots) and suddenly I was walking out of the door with the most perfect boots I’ve ever owned. I’ve probably worn them 99% of the time since being back from New York and they just look so cool with everything. LOVE.
I could look at this underwear set all day it’s just too beautiful. I treated myself to my first ever designer underwear the other day and decided Agent Provocateur was the brand I wanted to go for as I’ve dreamed about owning something from them for years. I chose this nude set (as nude goes under any colour) with beautiful floral details. There’s something about wearing an incredible underwear set underneath your clothes that just makes you go about your day with more confidence.
How did I only just discover this NARS Velvet Lip Pencil in Cruella?! It’s the most perfect red lip colour, such a true and deep beautiful shade. I wore it out to a party the other night where I was drinking and eating and I got home, looked in the mirror and it hadn’t budged. The staying power is unbeatable. I rarely wear a red lip as I always find it too much effort to reapply throughout the day/evening, I also struggle to find a shade of red I actually like on me – but now I have one I’m going to wear red lips all the time! (Copious amount of instagrams and a tutorial using Cruella to follow).
I hope you guys enjoyed this post, I forget how much I enjoy blogging and I’ve vowed to make more time for it this year. Leave me a comment telling me what you’re loving at the moment 🙂
