A Few Of My Favourite Things

I don't know about you but I've always got a little wishlist of things I'm lusting over at any given time. It could be anything - a pair of new leather boots, a book or a record, a plant and probably a lipstick or two (you can't have too many, right?).

I've recently had a rather big birthday and as it was so close to christmas, I was actually very lucky to get a few things I've been lusting over for a while - something had to soften the blow - so I thought I'd compile a little collection of some of my latest favourite things just in case you needed some inspiration!

1. Perfume

I have long lusted after this scent but it's not for the faint-hearted! You really do have to be a fan of all things cherry to wear it - I walk around now smelling like a cross between a Bakewell tart and a packet of Tunes.

 

 

 

Tom Ford - Lost Cherry, £236

 

2. Tableware

Our visit to Porto last year took us past many shop windows with displays of Bordallo Pinhiero's beautiful cabbage leaf designs. There's something about the colour and the texture that I love.

Bordallo Pinhiero dish, Arket, £29

 

3. Jewellery

I love the Lucy Williams range at Missoma, especially the layering gold necklaces but this bracelet is really pretty and in the Sale too.

Ridge Cross Bracelet, Missoma, £29

 

4. Socks

Glitter socks are for life, not just for Christmas! They're a great way to glam up jeans and trainers and again, another Sale bargain.

Glitter Socks, & Other Stories, £17

 

5. Knitwear

I recently found this gorgeous scarf in the Sale at our local Anthropologie reduced from £98 to £34. I can't find it on their website but it's available on Trouva (not at the same price unfortunately).

Ibbi Scarf by Becksondergaard, Trouva, £85.49

 

6. Make Up

I tend to do my own gel nails at home these days but when I haven't got time and want to have a quick fix, it's good to have a few regular nail polishes in the house. I love this green.

J Hannah nail polish, Cos, £17

 

7. Beauty

I love this liquid soap - the packaging is gorgeous and it smells just as good. I got a bottle for christmas and I know it's going to be a firm favourite.

Austin Austin Liquid Soap, Cos, £15

 

8. Book

This isn't released until 23rd January but it's at the top of my wishlist. Deborah Orr is someone I have followed on Twitter for a while and this unflinching memoir will be released just months after her untimely death.

Motherwell by Deborah Orr, Waterstones, £13.99

 

9. Gym Kit

I know it's a bit of a cliche to be heading into the new year and thinking about resolutions to exercise more but here we are! I'm a big fan of H&M work out gear and these leggings are right up my street!

Sports Tight, H&M, £19.99

 

10. Nightwear

I love everything about Sleepydoe - not only do they do the sweetest baby and children's nightwear but the designs for women are beautiful too. I couldn't resist this striped pyjama set and the cherry leggings mix and match perfectly.

Cherry Leggings, Sleepydoe, £16
