Spring is definitely my favourite time of year as the weather isn’t too hot, you can wear kimono’s and sandals to your hearts content and the evenings just feel so much longer, which all together makes me very happy. I thought it had been sometime since i’d shared the things that i’ve been loving recently, other than beauty bits as i’ve really started to cherish any spare time I get outside of work to just enjoy things, even if it just a chilled out afternoon in front of the TV.
You’ll notice that there isn’t really a running theme to the things that i’ve been loving recently, other than the obvious spring weather choices but I thought i’d switch it up a little as constantly writing beauty focused posts can be a little draining and sometimes boring. So here are a few things that i’ve been loving recently!
Sandals – Yes, I couldn’t not mention these first as they are the only footwear that I have worn over the past month or so. I’ve got around four pairs on the go at the moment, all of neutral colours as you can wear them with pretty much anything. This particular pair I picked up from Primark over the weekend and I am obsessed, as i’ve never owned a pair of nude sandals. They are super comfy and completely different to any other sandals within my current collection.
Pastel Nails – Okay, I had to include one beauty related item as I couldn’t not but I had acrylics done on my nails last weekend and usually i’m not one for false nails but I am obsessed. I’ve been painting them so many different pastel shades as I find them so flattering this time of the year and they just look so much nicer than my natural nails. The two shades i’ve been loving are: BarryM Speedy Quick Dry ‘Eat My Dust’ Nail Paint (£2.99) and Maybelline ‘Mint For Life’ Forever Strong Nail Polish (£4.49).
Body Jewellery Shop Earrings – I’m not usually one for changing my earrings all that much, but recently i’ve been playing around with my accessories and just trying to switch things up a bit. I’ve especially been loving the earrings that Body Jewellery Shop have to offer as they have so many different earrings to choose from, for such low prices. In particular i’m loving the Small Round Clear Gem Earrings* (£1.99) as they are so pretty, yet so delicate looking.
iPad – Whilst my parents were in Australia, I kindly asked them to pick me up an iPad as they are so much cheaper out there and as a first payday at my new job treat, I decided to allow myself to get one. So far i’ve been loving it as it comes in so handy for so many different things as I can blog on it, catch up on my Youtube subscription box without dropping my phone on my face and just general blog browsing. I also treated it to it’s own Michael Kors iPad Mini Case (£59.95), which I picked up from my local TkMaxx as they had a load in for the fraction of its original price and I love it.
Game of Thrones – Something i’d never thought i’d admit to watching, but thanks to my boyfriend i’m a little addicted. We always end up watching tv series together and initially I wasn’t going to allow myself to get into it as I never have the time, but we’re now two seasons in and so far i’m still interested. If you are looking for a new series to watch and haven’t started GOT, then give it a go as you may end up liking it as much as me.
So those are just a few things that i’ve been loving recently!
