Bumble & Bumble, Fifi Lapin and yet more stationary

fifi lapin iphone 4s case: iconemesis*

I was recently contacted by Iconemesis who kindly offered me an iPhone case to review. I jumped at the chance as I won one of their cases through a blogger giveaway a couple years ago now; it lasted me well until I think I may have dropped it one too many times and it cracked. I absolutely love their Fifi Lapin range and this 'repeat' design; if I'm ever stuck for something to wear, my phone case now gives me great inspiration! Delivery was really quick and the product feels like great quality.

I picked this bag up a few weeks ago now but just forgot to include it in any posts! I got it from a new seller at Vintage Village for the measly sum of £4! I've been after an old beaded bag for ages, so even though this one wasn't exactly the colour I'd hoped for, I knew I had to snap it up anyway!

Again, another little item that has been lurking away somewhere! I saw this on Preston car boot a few weeks ago, and seeming the colour matches some of my dressing table pretty much exactly, I knew it had to be mine (and it cost just a pound!) My boyfriend did scoff at me when I brought it home though, as my dressing table has an absolutely huge mirror attached to it. But oh well!

I picked up these little bits today during a charity shopping trip with Mum. I stopped buying Elle quite some time ago, but really wanted to try the bumble and bumble thickening spray which I'm ridiculously excited to use. And I've actually been pleasantly surprised with Elle too, even though the September issue is packed with adverts. And y'know even though I picked up new notebooks last week? Yeah, well I bought another.. This one has a little memo pad inside and is actually a mini storage file, so will be great for keeping all my stock receipts organized. Plus it was only £1.88 from a Hallmark outlet store!

owl tart burner: ebay
yankee candle tarts: yankeedoodle

Kane treated me to a few little bits of my august wishlist this weekend. I'd had my eye on this owl burner on ebay for ages, but I'm actually a little disappointed! As you can see from the pictures it doesn't fit the tart actually in the space, so they'll all have to be chopped up, and it has a few little chips on the back too, but oh well! It was only £6.99 with free delivery so not much room to complain. I also ordered some tarts off a new website, which I was really impressed with. Most of these scents I haven't tried before and some are old favourites; I think I'm most excited to try salted caramel which is a new scent for autumn!

le comptoir scandinave sandals: spartoo*

I've been in love with Swedish Hasbeen style sandals for quite some time now. I don't know why I haven't taken the plunge before (probably the washout summers that usually curse this country), but I knew I had to get some this year, and they definitely haven't disappointed. I got the tan pair as they're the colour that will go with the most, but I love the dusky pink ones too. They're ridiculously easy to walk in and surprisingly not as uncomfortable as they look - definitely my perfect summer sandal!

Have you been treating yourself to anything new recently?

  17. I love the phonecases on iconemesis - I have a fifi lapin one also, which I won on a facebook giveaway they held. It's so cute!
    Shame about the tart burner! But sweet of Kane to buy you some bits :) Love the sound of the salted caramel yankee, mmmm.
    I've treated myself to a couple of bits recently, but I'm trying to save a bit as I have a couple of weddings coming up (which I have to travel for) and have also spent lots on other things such as my holiday. So hard not to spend money when there's so many pretty things! xx

  18. It's a shame the tart burner isn't the most practical thing - it looks so lovely! I think Bahama Breeze is my new favourite Yankee Candle scent :)

  19. that bag is so cute and unique <3
