I have neglected the blog a bit recently. I’m sorry. Things have been a bit full on these past few weeks and I am feeling more than ready for a little rest and relaxation this half term. We head off on our skiing trip very early on saturday morning. It couldn’t be better timed since we get the results of the 11 plus shenanigans tomorrow! Eek… I thought I would do a very quick roundup post before I go of the things that I have bought or been tempted by this past week….
Tempted by – this grey coat which is new in at Mango. A grey coat is a wardrobe essential and this one would be perfect for those transitional months. I thought this was a great shape and a great price.
Bought – this today. I was looking for an every day lipstick that wasn’t too pale, wasn’t too pink and not red. This ticks all the boxes and it’s really moisturising.
Bought – I fell for this jumper after seeing the gorgeous Witblog in her designer version. It has arrived and feels great but I haven’t had the chance to try it on yet. I will report back!
Bought – I have used Chanel Vitalumiere for years but I finished my bottle last week, so I thought I would give this a go as I am such a fan of the rest of the CT range. So far I love it. Great coverage and the colour options are so spot on.
Bought – I am still scratching my Gucci loafer itch with various high street versions. These are a great price for suede and can be worn with backs down for a slide option.
Tempted by – I love this swimsuit. I went to pack mine for holiday (the hotel we are staying in for our skiing trip has a pool) and couldn’t find it, so had a quick look online. I would have ordered this one, but they didn’t have my size.
Tempted By – I absolutely love this coat and if I didn’t have my pink happy coat I would be buying this. Both Erica Davies and Alex (The Frugality) own pink coats very similar to this one and I have been after a coat in a similar shade to theirs. This ticks all the boxes.
Neither bought or tempted by BUT I think they are such a steal and very very similar to my Isabel Marant Poppy Heels that I love so much. They also come in a very pretty shade of pink.
Tempted By – I’ve just finished my bottle of cell repair night oil by Aurelia and so I have been tempted to replace it with this, because I keep reading amazing things about this cult beauty product. I think it’s on my wish list for next month. I would really love to just try it, I wonder if they offer sample sizes?
Tempted By – and will be buying. I did a streetstyle shoot for Me + Em and fashion week today and this was the jumper I wore. It’s heaven to wear and looked so lovely on. Probably not a natural choice for me, but once I put it on, I didn’t want to take it off. Can’t wait to show you the photos!
Sorry it’s so brief, but I really must go and pack! I plan to take the laptop with me and write a little blog post while I am in Switzerland (seeing as I won’t be skiing!) and bore you senseless with snowy snaps!
Thanks for reading and for supporting me. Truly, I mean that. I couldn’t have hit 20K followers last week without you, the readers of my blog, being there, and supporting me every step of the way. You all feel like real friends, and when I ‘story’ each day, it’s like I am talking to you all as friends. Sounds weird, I know, but it’s true!
