15.02.2019- Beauty Buys: Miller Harris Rose Silence Eau de Parfum

Friday, 15 February 2019

As I’ve posted about in the past, there are few little luxuries more enjoyable than a new bottle of perfume. Now that we’re slowly seguing towards spring, I’ve been keenly spritzing a fresh fragrance which I picked up a few weeks ago from Miller Harris, with a whacking 50% discount thanks to their bottle exchange programme which took place during January. Swapping an empty bottle for a new scent at half price was a total winner, and (after much deliberation!), I opted for Rose Silence: 

As well as being presented in a beautiful bottle, the fragrance itself is a real treat too. It goes without saying that it’s a veritable floral fiesta, with rose blended perfectly with notes of mandarin and patchouli. It’s a little bit heavier than some of the other floral fragrances which I’ve tried and rested before, but it lasts all day and has a wonderfully warm feel too. Definitely one which was well worth the investment! 

Have you tried any new scents recently?

11.02.2019- What I Wore Today #360

Monday, 11 February 2019

Although there’s something really (and wonderfully) comforting about reaching for a regular rotation of pieces during the winter months, there’s no denying that living in the same staples week in week out can get, well, a little bit boring. Don’t get me wrong, I love my usual uniform of jumpers and jeans, but for the sake of a little bit of variety, it’s always nice to have an excuse to switch things up a bit. Luckily, some spring styles are slowly trickling into the shops, and last week I snapped up a piece which I’ve had my beady eye trained on for a little while now: 

Dress- Oliver Bonas 
Coat- c/o Very 
Shoes- Vans 

How gorgeous is this dress from Oliver Bonas? They are absolutely winning with all of their spring pieces, and I spied this frock in store a few weeks back. Post payday, I snapped it up, particularly as I know it’s going to be a brilliant investment for the next few months and into the summer. The length is perfect, and I love the contrasting prints, as well as the slightly sporty collar. It’s one of those winning pieces which ticks all of the right boxes, and which is great for a fuss-free throwing on first thing in the mornings- which are slowly but surely getting lighter! 

Have you picked up any new season pieces recently?

08.02.2019- Free People Favourites

Friday, 8 February 2019

It always makes a really refreshing change to have somewhere new to explore, particularly if it’s somewhere which can brighten up a dreary January day in a flash! Such was the case when I ventured into the recently opened Covent Garden branch of Free People and discovered a beautiful bounty of clothes, jewellery and accessories on offer. Their first permanent London home, the Floral Street shop is a perfectly designed pocket of inspiration, replete with a series of signature pieces and lots of new prospects, including some lovely summer style options. I’m holding off from snapping up any clothing until I get a beach break booked in, but I did walk away with some goodies- as well as an arm full of flowers for spending £50 on opening day!

Whilst I’ve got a collection of (as yet) unused candles sitting in my room, this pine and eucalyptus option is definitely a great addition to the collection- particularly as it smells wonderfully fragrant just sitting on my bookshelf. After getting a fresh ear piercing just after my birthday last year, I couldn’t resist this collection of studs, especially as they’re a wonderful combination of colours and designs. Finally, a practical purchase in the shape of these hair slides- just the ticket for keeping my increasingly unruly hair in check!
