Moving Out: Blankets

Faux Fur Blanket Out There Interiors
007
I’m going to be posting about my journey to moving out with my boyfriend, it’s been on the cards for a long time but we’re getting close to finally having enough money now. In preparation I’ve been collecting bits and bobs for months now, so that when we finally find a place we haven’t got to spend loads of money on things like bedding and plates. The things I’ve been buying haven’t been expensive or fancy but will do the job well enough, I do have my eye on some lovely French furniture though.The chests of drawers are beautiful, pricey though.
Today I’m going to show you my favourite item of bedding that I have in my stash, this amazing faux fur blanket. I have a bit of a problem with blankets, I love snuggling up with a blanket on the sofa or in my bed and I just can’t stop buying them. This faux fur number is a beaut though, it’s so soft and I cannot wait to get in bed with it. It is from Out There Interiors* which is one of my favourite interiors shops to browse online, they have some really unique pieces. I will be paying them another visit once I move out I’m sure.
Have we got any blanket fans in the house?

NOTW: Nude Sparkles

Barry M Gelly Hi-Shine Polish – Lychee

Barry M Glitter Polish – Yellow Topaz

Bourjois 1 Second – Vampire Vanity*

A super gold and sparkly look this week, I love mixing gold and nude on the nails. I decided to layer up a couple of glitters to get a sort of 3D effect. The Bourjois polish is really lovely, containing huge chunks of gold leaf that catch the light. The Barry M gold polish  has little holographic pieces of glitter in which adds a bit more depth to the look.

What’s on your nails this week?

What’s In My Work Bag?

What’s in my bag? January 2014

Doctor’s Bag from Topshop - £40

I love these posts, I think everyone is nosy when it comes to other people’s bags. It’s interesting to see which things people think are important to carry around with them. This is my work bag, if you didn’t know I’m a cover teacher in a secondary girls school so I carry lots of random school stuff with me.

321

The Stationery

Leather pencil case by Aubin & Wills (RIP) | Various Pens & Pencils | Sulley Notebook | Green Pritt Stick | Post-its 

Blu – Tak (works wonders for the fiddlers) | Superhero Notebook that I use as a diary

324

The Essentials

Purse | HK umbrella | Tissues | Chewing Gum | Fruit & Nut shot | Lollipops (rewards) | Mints | Mittens | Solid Perfume

Headache Soother | Lip Balm

Torch (It’s dark when I leave for work at 7:15am and dark when I get home at 4! No streetlights here) | Headphones

Memory Stick | Juice Cube iPhone charger

So, not too interesting to be honest. It’s usually full of random pieces of work and bits of paper, more pens and sweets. I also have a water bottle and a cereal bar in there for break time too.

What have you got in your bag?

New Glasses by Specsavers

031

029

Gok Wan for Specsavers GW65*

Replay for Specsavers Replay 18*

New specs are a bit of a weakness for me, I love going and trying on different styles. A new pair of glasses can totally change the way that you look and the way that you feel. I had an eye test way back in November but it took me until January to pick some glasses that I was happy with. I’m so glad I held out as I really love the two pairs that I chose, they are both a little bit different but not too ‘out there’ that I won’t wear them.

034

037

067

068

This first pair are by Gok Wan and I love them! They have a lovely angular shape which I’ve not seen any where else before, they are quite wide and little winged so give an uplifted effect. I love the colour of these frames, they are a beautiful purple shade with a sort of  butterfly wing type print on them – the glasses are also a little darker in colour in the centre. They are such a unique pair of glasses, I love wearing them.

044

081

083

The second pair are my favourites, I can never resist a cat-eye frame and these are beauts. The shape is very defined and it really seems to frame the eyes well. I wouldn’t expect this pair of glasses to be designed by the denim brand Replay, who are new to Specsavers (I believe!). They are a great ‘every day’ frame and are perfect for work. They are tortoiseshell but quite a dark shade and they look black most of the time.

What do you think to my new glasses?

NOTW: Salt & Pepper

L’Oreal Colour Riche Nail Polish in Because You Are Worth It

L’Oreal Confetti Top Coat

I love this little nail combo I wore for work last week, for some reason it makes me think of salt and pepper. I’m not a huge fan of this confetti top coat to be honest, I think it can look quite tacky sometimes – paired with grey though, I like it. The L’Oreal Colour Riche polishes are really good, they’re quite small but the formula is really lovely. Definitely worth checking out if you haven’t already.

What’s on your nails at the moment?
