I thought I would show you what I am in Love with this week…well we all do it don’t we! Got a spare 5 minutes? let’s go shopping online to see what might tempt our hard earn’t cash! Well these are the things that I have been looking at this week so I thought I would share with you and perhaps you could let me know your favourites too!
I haven’t liked hardly any of the latest Cath kidston designs over the last few years… for me it’s gone all Pete Tong [wrong] lol! New designers haven’t helped much either. The prints and styles look more like Laura Ashley and I think they are trying too hard to be ‘on trend’ which doesn’t fit in with the ethos of Cath’s individual look…I know she no longer owns the Company and that’s probably the reason why! but I can’t see this brand lasting much longer…So with all that said I wasn’t able to ignore the re-release of the old Antique Rose Wallpaper [featured above] Yes I went and purchased 6 rolls of the stuff…I love it in this Navy…thing is though I bought it at the start of the year and still haven’t got around to hanging it in my bedroom! [sigh!]
You can’t beat a black and white mono print and just look at this wonderful apron from marimekko! This famous poppy pattern Unikko was born in 1964 in a time when the design house’s collections featured mostly abstract prints. Designer Maija Isola wanted to create something interesting from this organic theme and designed an entire range of floral prints. Today, the iconic flower represents creativity…and I just love it. Having to go elsewhere for my floral prints these days, I couldn’t think of a better brand [apart from Orla Kiely shhhh!] the only thing is, I would never want to get it dirty! Another piece of clothing to hang along a coat hook! lol!
Isn’t this tattoo incredible!…and if I told you it was a temporary tat would you believe me? Ideal for a special occassion, a night out with the gals or to try before you go the whole hog and get yourself tattoo’ed for Life!…This shop on Etsy has been a favourite of mine for a while and I just had to share with all of you…please go check her out…
Now this is something so cute and special…This Company let’s you send a picture to them and then they create a custom portrait for which you can personalise yourself, there is a watercolour option [like the picture above] or there is a Disney option, plus some other styles. After you have made your choices they send the file to you via email so that you can print in any size you want! How clever is that…The designs are gorgeous…I will definitely be purchasing a print like the one above of Freddy and I especially as we have just celebrated our 35 year Wedding Anniversary! Congrats to us Eh!
P.S…I have updated and reposted this post. It was originally written in October 2014, but nothing was relevant to today! so I have updated it with my favourite buys of today, some comments might still be from 2014!
What kinds of things have you been buying online lately?
Do let us know…
