This week hasn’t involved leaving the house very much, apart from to stock up on tea (essential). I am quite a homebody but when I have to be at home working 24/7 thats not much fun. So I am very very excited for the Bank Holiday weekend, when I will be having a BBQ (weather permitting) and sipping Pimms, oh & not forgetting watching Eurovision.
So making me happy this week in no particular order
Michael Kors Lip Luster Lip Gloss in Getaway*– Even though I work from home & its normally only my husband and postman that has to see me I still like to get ready (most days). I find that if I slob about in pj’s and try to work I just don’t feel as productive. I also like to do my makeup, although it tens to be very minimal. This lipgloss from the Michael Kors Into The Glow Collection is such a pretty colour & too pretty not be on my lips. Its quite a vibrant pink with a pretty glossy sheen and its not a sticky gloss but quite comfortable to wear.
Note Cards – I am a stationery hoarder, I know I’m not alone on this (stationery addicts unite). I enjoy sending snail mail and receiving it too. A couple of years ago my niece & I decided to write letters to each other, she is 7 and lives 300 miles away from me, so I don’t get to see her as often as I’d like. So we send cute notes & letters back & forth. I love it & she is the cutest pen friend. I really like hunting down cards and paper to write on and it also feeds my addiction to stationery. This box of cards I bought from Home Sense who have an incredible selection of paper goods.
Sharpie Pens – I need something cute to write notes with & I have to say Sharpies are my pen of choice. Especially now that you can get so many wonderful colours, a colour for every mood. The pastel ones have been my favourites of late, so pretty. Are you a Sharpie hoarder too?
Giorgio Armani Si – I adore this scent its perfect for anytime of day or night & I always get compliments when I wear it. It has notes of Vanilla, Blackcurrant, Rose de Mai and Patchouli and base notes of blond amber which give it a sophisticated musky scent. When you initially spray this you can smell the Vanilla which gives it a sweet scent but it calms down to reveal a chic musky scent which lingers all day. If you haven’t tried this, then you need to give it whirl. I think you will all love it.
Flamingo Candle – Everything makes me happy about this candle, the jar is cute, the scent is lovely (Rose and Marshmallow) and i was lucky enough to win it in Abby’s giveaway. I burn this in the morning whilst I check my emails, it smells lovely and calming and after I blow it out the scent still fills the room. If you have tried any candles from this brand then leave me some recommendations in the comments.
So what has been making you happy this past week?
