Over the past few weeks I've accumulated a few new bits and bobs, some bought myself and others given as birthday gifts from the grand old turning 24... I had a lovely birthday spending most of my actually birthday with my lovely dad then a nice dinner with my family minus the big brother. I did get a new bag from the older sibling but sadly the handle broke off it on Saturday morning - boo Zara - so that has been returned and another is on it's way.
H&M Basic tops Ranging from £4.99-7.99
H&M Basic tops are my favourite. Affordable, always a plethora to choose from and the fit is normally pretty good. I tried to serve black as much as possible but the over sized t shirt came in colours that I just didn't get along with so I had to go for black! The striped vest comes in a black with white as well which I shall be snapping up also. Why not, if I like it!
Porcelain Reindeer Melstock & Quire. Orange House Plant in Ceramic
My first Christmas decoration of the year bought, I got this adorable little reindeer ornament from a gorgeous shop in Morningside, Edinburgh. It was about £2.99 which I think is an absolute steal. It is so cute.
The plant I bought from my work simply because I love the orange shade of the flowering part and it is a nice little addiction to my room without being over powering. And it was reduced...
Topshop Treggings - £28
Already owning a similar pair of trousers in a white with black pattern I knew snapping up a second pair would be a good move. They are the comfiest trousers and are perfect for the winter time as they are thick.
Cath Kidston Notepad and Lunch in Paris by Elizabeth Bard
I love keeping a journal. I find it so therapeutic especially being a serial worrier, writing things out tends to help me along a little. Of course I can't write these things down in any old thing so while my laptop was off getting fixed I treated myself to a new diary and a sneaky new novel. I was immediately drawn to this book it features Paris - love - food - love - and a whole load of romance... it is beautifully written.
This was my 24th Birthday present from my mum and dad. I needed a new coat badly, my old coat was about 5 years old so a new one was needed. This coat is beautiful. Perfect cut, sits nicely... just perfect. Zara I love you ... apart from my new bag breaking that is.
