This lovely cake tin was a Christmas present from my parents. I spotted one similar in a shop while on holiday with them, but after a quick stop for a takeaway coffee, we didn’t get chance to go back to the shop! It’s perfect for storing lots of yummy cupcakes!
I love having plants in our kitchen, it makes it feel a lot fresher and brighter. I would love to start growing some potted herbs in 2013.
This beautiful vintage camera was a a birthday present from Glenn. Unfortunately, it’s no longer in working order, but it does look just lovely on my camera shelf, next to my Polaroid, Lomography Fish Eye and Instax cameras. The cute candle was a Christmas present from my sister. It smells amazing and the cute ‘lamp’ that sits on top is perfect when watching a film on the sofa.
Charlie was bound to make it into this post somehow! He is the most beautiful cat I have ever seen and he is so cheeky, charming and naughty – but we still love him lots!
I bought Glenn this simple oil bottle for Christmas. With the added ribbon, I think it looks great next to our Kilner jars. Another addition to our kitchen was a mini bunting that Glenn bought me for Christmas. Its great at just adding a little bit of colour in an otherwise plain corner.
The best gift I received this year was my long awaited camera lens! I had saved up money to buy the body, a Canon 1100D, and I added the lens to my Christmas list. I’ve wanted to buy an DSLR again for quite a while, so I am really loving having one in my hands and taking lots of photos! I also received a lovely new bag to keep my camera safe. I definitely didn’t want the normal boring ‘tourist’ camera bag, so I had a look over at eBay, and found this bargain! It’s big enough to hold my camera and the lens, with room to fit my phone and purse in, but not too big that you feel like you are carrying a holdall!
My recent purchase from Topshop, with a Christmas gift card and a beautiful print, framed and gifted to us by Glenn’s mum.
I’m a sucker for a pretty piece of stationary, so when I found out that Frankie magazine sell a journal each year, I knew I had to have it. I tried to buy it last year but they sold out super quick, so as soon as I could, I asked for the 2013 one for Christmas! It has the prettiest illustrations, budget and lists pages and stickers – amazing!
Cute tin for my perfumes! The amount of times I have knocked over my perfume bottles (and Charlie too!) meant I have been searching for the perfect way to store them – and when I received this cute tin for my birthday, I knew straight away what I would be using it for!
Even though I work in a coffee shop, there is nothing I love more than coming home, sitting on the sofa and having a coffee made from my Tassimo machine with a biscuit or two!
A selection of rings that I am loving at the moment! The jewel owl ring was sent to me from Your Fashion Jewellery. It’s so beautiful and it looks great as a feature piece of jewellery.
My main New Years resolution was to start treating my skin a little better! I’ve started using a blackhead cleanser, which makes my skin so clean and soft, followed by a soothing toner and a hydrating moisturiser, along with cleansing wipes. I’m trying to do it every morning and night, so hopefully I can keep it up!
