How warm is it?! I can’t cope with the heat, I’ve been retreating into the cold cave of my front room and cooling off in the only way I know how – freezer-cold lager.
So anyway, I know I promised this wasn’t going to be a fashion and beauty blog, but considering that the vast majority of blogs I read are lifestyle-related, I felt inspired to follow in the footsteps of these individuals and make a wishlist of stuff which I
want need this summer.
I am due to come into some extra cash at the end of this month and have been daydreaming for most of my working days on what I am going to spend it on.
From left to right, top to bottom.
1. The first is a pair of adorable little wooden earrings made by illustrator Kate Rowland, which I have been meaning to buy for weeks. Have a look at her Etsy shop, I dare you not to fall in love with something. It’s all awesome.
2. I have been in two minds about whether or not to buy a pair of Juju Jellies for the summer, and have decided after much debating that they are more awesome than ugly looking, and I would like to transport my feet back in time to 1997.
3. I love Game of Thrones. My housemate was recently sporting a shirt made by the excellent Fencing & Archery printing company, and I need this grey Stark shirt in my life.
4. One of my most recent discoveries was Photojojo. I don’t quite know how I managed to not know of it for so long, but amongst all the wonderment is this contraption which scans 35mm negatives onto your smartphone. I know, right.
5. Another Etsy find! Just look at this shop. I sucked so badly at cross stitch at school but this gives me an itchin’ to pick up a needle and thread again.
6. Finally is a treat for my skin. It’s so bad. Recently a friend lent me this gentle glycolic peel from Ren and it made my skin look amazing. It’s pricey, but for a once a week treat which makes that much of a difference I reckon it’s worth it.
It’s pretty bad that the money hasn’t even hit my account and it’s already been spent, albeit in a mental capacity. Perhaps I should save my money, but where is the fun in that?
