Whiskers on roses and raindrops on kittens...or something like that anyway! I thought today I would share with you a few things I'm loving at the moment!
I love anything feathery, and now have quite a few owlish things around my home, including this infinity scarf (which goes with EVERYTHING. No, really, I wear it with everything!) which was just £5 from Tesco. Also this giant owl mug is perfect for a massive cuppa, I picked it up in Matalan for £3. Twit twoo! And my favourite bag, an Anna Smith owl print satchel and matching purse. Made from oil cloth so it's durable (and wipe clean, important when you're a mum and clumsy) and has 11tymillion pockets inside for all the lipsticks/receipts/conkers/lego I carry around!
I don't have a huge selection of yankees, and I prefer the tarts and votives to jars because you can switch your scent up more often, but I can't resist popping a tart in my shopping whenever I'm in Clintons! My favourites at the moment are Vanilla Chai and Witches Brew, and I also have a small Turquoise Sky jar in my bathroom (because it matches the walls!) I can't do foody ones though, they make me hungry!
As it's got colder again, I've rekindled my love affair with my slow cooker. It's so easy to bung everything in when I get back from the school run, forget about it all day (apart from the yummy smells!) and have a delicious home cooked meal ready for me and Mr NN once the boys are in bed. This week we've had spag bol, a gammon joint (which just fell apart it was so tender), a ham and lentil soup with the gammon leftovers and currently a rice pudding is simmering away. Nom!
This might seem like an odd one, but I seem to have collected a few different coloured tights this season! I have a couple of dresses that I like to wear with boots and tights, including this textured aztec skater dress from H&M (£14.99) and pairing them with different coloured tights just switches it up a bit! I have navy blue, purple, grey, burgundy crochet, woolly, star print...just adds a bit of interest to a fairly safe outfit.
Facial oils and serums
Another odd one perhaps, but at the age of 31 I'm starting to feel the need to invest in my skincare a little more rather than just slapping a bit of moisturiser on every now and again. I recently got a sample of Clarins Double Serum and I love it! My skin is feeling dryer than usual at the moment and this just gives it a moisture boost before my normal moisturiser. I wish I had looked at the price before I fell in love with it though, because although a little goes a long way, at £55 for 30mls it is way beyond my budget. Hopefully, this Vitamin E skin oil from Superdrug will prove to be a much more purse friendly alternative at £1.99 for 30ml and I can't wait to try it. I'm a big fan of their vitamin E range, and it's had great reviews so hopefully this lives up to expectations!
So, there are my current loves! What are you loving at the moment? Any skin oils/serums or Yankee scents you'd recommend?
