This month I did a fair bit of Op shopping for my OOTD shoots, which I'm having a fabulous time doing, and gradually this space seems to be more about fashion, but I did pick up a couple of new things. Here is a small handful of things I am loving this month.
How awesome is Washi Tape! I have a few rolls of it lying around, left over from my card making days, but these two gorgeous selections I found on a UK website called Fox and Star. The burgundy one with the flowers is a brand called Maste and the birds are Mt ex. I am planning on decorating bits of furniture, using it when wrapping presents (probably using it on plain brown paper), and perhaps using it to stick random things everywhere. It's great that you can remove it and reuse it, if you're careful.
I've been using this lip balm by Glamourflage for a little while now, ever since I got it as a bonus in a gift pack, (see my post on it here) It is part of a collection of gorgeously named beauty products, each with it's own femme fatale on the label with her own personality and individual story. This is Daisy and she's a cherry lip balm and is absolutely delicious.
I don't normally wear nail polish. It's impossible with kids. If you manage to find fifteen minutes of uninterrupted time to put it on it's a miracle, and it's even more miraculous if you can find an added twenty minutes of uninterrupted time to wait until your polish dries properly. But despite that I do like to paint my toe nails when the weather starts to warm up. How hideous are feet? Somehow a little bit of colour on your toes seems to make sandals look so much better. Anyway, at the moment my toes are this gorgeous red, which is a darker, more 'blue' red shade (rather than an 'orange' red) and this gold looks really nice on too. So nice in fact that I have even been wearing it on my fingers! Yes, I risked the kiddy-smudge and have been putting it on my finger nails. What a concept! These two colours I picked up at my local chemist where they stock Natio, which is an Australian brand of natural skin care and cosmetics. It is really affordable and they have some lovely things. This red is called 'Mystic' and the gold is 'Aura'.
My final favourite for the month is my beloved 'Cowgirl' magazine that comes to me every second month all the way from the USA. I actually need to renew my subscription but this is a great magazine, with lots of fashion, beauty, décor, homes, horses and inspiring women, with plenty of cowboy boots thrown in for good measure. I just wish it came out every month!
