New pretty winter purchases, beauty & interior

Shabby chic decor beauty blog haul
I've passed the refusal stage where I didn't want to accept it was winter and now I'm digging in my heels and determined to make the best of it. I savour my sofa duvet time without feeling guilty, take time to swim in a
sea of pretty blankets and sequin cushions. There's something almost poetic about the air, a certain feeling of lostlessness between each fog of breath. There's snow on the fells each day, the eerie January rain, silhouettes and mists feel spooky and something of a comfort. I love marshmallow fluff, Oscar's pink cheeks and the prospect of keeping toasty while lighting tea lights, trying out different makeup and skincare goodies...

I added this The Body Shop cream to my cart when Christmas shopping and once the presents were wrapped I realised I had it left over. It has such a rich, calming, sophisticated, tropical scent, something from a luxury spa. It almost has a minty essence to it, it smells like pure opulence and indulgence. It's a really thick, nourishing cream and applying this every day has eased me back in to life at home. It's like a tropical climate, bottled!

I couldn't resist this lovely Beauty and the Beast wallet in Primark, it's so darling! It was only £4 and the pink and gold caught my eye. I won't be afraid to pull this out from my Moana bag next time I'm in Asda.

I needed a new eyeliner and found this Too Faced Sketch marker reduced on ebay for about £7. It's in the shade Deep Expresso and now I've tried a brown eyeliner I can't go back, it creates such soft, gorgeous makeup looks and blends in to your lashes perfectly. No matter how dramatic or extreme your wing, it never looks over the top. I love that I can try some crazier looks with this. It's completely smudge proof and so precise, like drawing with a super thin felt tip. Somehow it makes your eyes look even better than with black liner!

These rustic 'home' letters were only 70p for all four at Asda! I spied them by chance and added them to my basket right away. I love how they lend forest, mori girl vibes and there is a letter for each of our names!

Thank you so much for your lovely comments on my last posts! I'm always a little unsure when I hit publish as my mind is usually so foggy and sleepy haha, my blog is my special space where I can just ramble away and not think about grammar too much; I just hope it makes sense haha! What are your happy little things?  

PS thank you for reading right now, it means the world to me - and our little family!

  6. The Beauty and the Beast wallet! Oh my I love how beautiful it is! I would love to try brown eyeliner, but since I have way too hooded eyelids, I don't think I can work that. If I find a cheap one, I could try!

  10. Love your dresser! The Beauty & the Beast coin purse is adorable, I love Primark for a cute bargain!

    My favourite place is the beach too! I definitely act very shy around people I don't like or feel comfortable around - loud around everyone else :')
