Five Things I Love Friday & Five Blogs I Love Friday 027.

Back by popular demand are my Five Things I love Friday posts! Hopefully I'll be able to keep these up every week like I used to, sometimes it's hard finding things I love a lot every single week and there is a real issue with photograph copyright - I don't want to get shouted at for using other people's images without their permission. I'll try my best to find my way around that though because I really do miss putting these posts together!

One. These exquisite jewellery pieces from RUST!
Yesterday I saw a post by Estée on her blog featuring the beautiful ring her boyfriend bought her for Christmas from an online jewellery boutique called RUST & I instantly fell in love and had to have a look at every single piece they sell. Gosh, I'm not even sure quite what to say. Everything just looks so elegant and that first ring up there is my absolute favourite piece!

Two. yyellowbird's flickr photo stream! 
I've been following Cari's photostream on flickr for probably around four years now and I have absolutely loved watching her talent grow and grow. I'm no longer a regular flickr visitor but I always make sure to have a look at Cari's page every once in a while! 

Three. This amazing children's bed. 
I have recently been hit, well, pretty much smacked in the face if we're being honest, with an overwhelming feeling of broodiness and I have no idea where it's come from. I'm not overly keen on other people's children so it's not like I'm surrounded by babies or anything like that but I'm finding myself cooing over all things baby. But we won't talk about that anymore, not for a little while anyway! I stumbled across this adorable little bed on Kaelah's blog and it's just the sweetest thing ever. I would have loved a bed like that when I was small! 

Four. Winning the battle against flat packed furniture! 
Now, I love ikea as much as the next person, the prices are pretty amazing and the restaurant always manages to lure me in for chips and lingonberry juice. I do not however like the flat packed nature of it's lovely furniture. You know it's going to be a big job when something comes in two boxes and you have to pay them £15 to deliver it to your door because you can't make it fit in the car! A little bit of cursing, several cans of coke, a doughnut and two & a half hours later this baby was up. It was worth all the effort because I love it. Yay! 

Five. New make up storage!

I had been after some new make up storage for a little while, specifically of the clear acrylic variety. Over the past couple of years I've watched copious amounts of videos and read a lot of blog posts from lovely ladies that had these acrylic drawers of wonder! Leanne tweeted about some drawers that she had found at Homebase a little while back and it must have just stuck in the back of my mind because recently I ventured to a Homebase store and picked up two of their acrylic paper sorters. Now at £20.99 each they're fairly pricey but they do seem to be really good quality and I love them so it's worth it in my eyes!
