Five Fave Finds.


I never really do big shopping trips that are worthy of an entire haul post or video, but I tend to treat myself to new additions here and there! Probably more often than I’m letting on, to be honest…

I wanted to start a new feature to showcase some of my new finds, since I love seeing these from others.

Gucci Soho Disco Bag; This is my everyday bag at the minute, and I love how small and understated it is! The sleek black, grainy finish and the metallic chain make it perfect for finishing off every outfit.
I actually have the smaller version, but this size is in stock at the moment and it’s probably a little more practical if you’re not the best at streamlining your stash!

Mango Metallic Skirt; So I’m pretty much obsessed with metallic midis at the moment, and this Mango number ticks all the boxes! The soft champagne hue goes with my entire wardrobe, and the plisse material is perfect for day or night. I pair it with fluffy jumpers and my Gucci bag during the day, and ankle boots and blouses for evenings out.

Diptyque Oud Candle; I have an actual backlog of Diptyque candles at the moment, sometimes they just look too pretty to burn! This heavenly-scented pick is deliciously woody and really warming at the same time, it’s been sitting on my mantlepiece just waiting to be lit! I think this might be the week… maybe I’ll save it for Friday night when my house is tidy and I’m ready to unwind.


Benefit Galifornia Blush; How perfect is this new Benefit blush!? The packaging, the golden tones… I’m obsessed. I am in dire need of a spring makeup shakeup, and this is top of my list for channelling perky pink cheeks.
I’m a big fan of a warm, gold-flecked flush so I just know this is going to be an everyday staple for me.

The Curated Closet; I love coffee table books, especially any read that actually teaches me a thing or two! The Curated Closet is a bible for anyone who likes to own a streamlined selection of clothes they love, which is totally me! It gives tips on compiling the perfect wardrobe, as well as advice on cutting down on clothes you’ll never wear. It’s an essential read for former clothes hoarders like myself!

Have you added any of these to your wishlist?

  • Such a dreamy post, those flatlay pictures are gorge! The Curated Closet book sounds so interesting, I love cute books like that, which also look super pretty xo

    Love, Catherine

  • The curated closet looks so interesting! Perhaps more of a classic approach to the capsule wardrobe?

  • I love ALL the benefit products I’ve tried so far… honestly, only two haha. I have their boing concealer (godly) and the liquid highlighter thing they have, which I absolutely love. NEED to try the blush out, the packaging is so cute 🙂 x

  • That bag has been on my wish list for months!! I need it!

  • I’m going to be buying the Gucci Soho Disco bag soon and I’m so excited! I”m going to buy it used (I can’t justify the full price) and the one without the chain, I want the full leather one. I’ve heard great reviews about it so I’m excited to try it out 🙂


  • Love love love the Gucci Bag!! x

  • That candle looks amazing! And loving your Gucci bag so much <3 🙂 Hahaha and it's ok to treat ourselves once in a while, don't you think? ^_^

    XO, Elizabeth

  • diptyque candles are just the biggest treat ever. i still have to go to the berlin store and sniff the candle they only do there.


  • That metallic skirt looks so dreamy! Mango have had such lovely things in recently!

  • I keep meaning to pick up The Curated Closet! It’s been in my wish list for ages, so maybe now’s the time… xx


  • I love to treat myself every once in a while. All these cute little bits that you picked up look amazing! I remember trying on a metallic skirt once but it just didn’t suit me, I’m so jealous of those who can pull them off, I think they’re beautiful. I recently bought the Pixi + Caroline Hirons double cleanse as a payday treat for myself!

  • That Gucci bag is gorgeous! Also I’ve been wanting to get that Curated Closet book for a while now! Awesome post!

  • I need to read curated closet I’m in such a clothing rut at the moment and so determined to actually find my actual style so I know what to shop for rather than scour and scour and never feel like my wardrobe is complete! Also I love your photos too

  • I think I need to buy myself a copy of The Curated Closet! We’re moving in a couple of weeks and it would really make sense to streamline my wardrobe down to two or three boxes instead of the fifty I’m gonna need for everything I own now!

  • I can’t wait to get my hands on a copy of The Curated Closet! and I love the gucci bag, especially since it’s you can pair it with any outfit because of its minimal design. Perfect!x


  • Your pictures are always so dreamy! I’ve been wanting to get my hands on either a satin/velvet plisse or pleated midi skirt for sooo long but they seem to be so popular at the moment they’re always out of stock in my size, especially in such a pretty colour. Another bag that proves you own the cutest bag collection to date! Lovely mentions 🙂

    I absolutely love your Gucci bag, I have been wanting that one or the slightly bigger one for so long now, I’m hoping to be able to afford one at some point this year. I love a tote bag but I’m getting to the point (and I sound like a granny) where they are really hurting my shoulder carting around all of my rubbish. I think it must be better for you to wear a cross body one so you’re not off balance. And I mean…it’s Gucci, love a bit o Gucci! Great post chick xxx Sarah from Iheartcosmetics xx

  • I love that book!!! It’s like pure gold for fashion lovers haha
