Five Things & Five Blogs I Love Friday 031.

One. Bailey! 
Bailey pup has been getting into lots of mischief, enjoying being thoroughly spoiled with toys and loving lots of cuddles. He's decided that this is his chair and since it's the perfect size we've let him have it. He loves it mostly because he can look right out of the window, which has fast become one of his favourite things to do because he's the nosiest dog I've ever met. He always likes to know what's going on! 
Two. Instax Mini Photographs.
These little credit card sized photographs are just so unbelievably cute and I think they are just the perfect size. Over the years I have taken so many with my Fuji Instax Mini camera and they have all been sitting in a sweet little box under my bed. I have been meaning to pop them in some frames but unfortunately that's a little project I haven't quite got around to completing just yet, but I will! When I was gifted a make up bag from Clippy I didn't know how I wanted to customise it until I realised I could pop some of my instax photographs into the pockets for a really personalised design. I'm so excited to show you all how it looks so there will definitely be a post coming up really soon about that! 
Three. Ikea Candles.
I adore candles, but I can never quite bring myself to purchase the more expensive ones no matter how gorgeous they are. This is where Ikea comes in with it's affordable shops of wonder. These are only 89p which I think is a total bargain, the scents are just lovely & I really like the glass containers and intend to keep this one for storage or to fill with pretty beads for decoration! 

Four. Pretty Spring Time Dresses!
My favourite thing about spring and summer is all the super cute dresses that pop up in shops. I adore dresses, I would say 80% of my entire wardrobe is dresses because I love how flattering they are when you find the right cut for your body shape. I'm all about the classic cinched in at the waist with a full flowy skirt & if it has a sweetheart neckline I'm all over it! 

Five. HelloCotton. 

I'm sure I've mentioned HelloCotton in a things I love post before but over the past couple of weeks I have been loving it even more than usual. If you're not sure what I'm talking about then, it's very similar to Bloglovin' but I think it's a million times better. To me, the layout is easier to navigate and most importantly, it's more interactive. I have already discovered some amazing blogs through HelloCotton & I think you will too!


What have you been loving this week?

  3. Bailey is so cute, love that photo of him! Bodhi is the same and was jumping up to try and look out of the window yesterday, he likes to bark at everyone that goes past! Also love those Ikea candles, they just smell SO good! I tend to clean them out afterwards and put tealights in them too or I have some that I've stuck decals on, I don't like throwing things away. Oh and YES to springtime dresses! (I always love everything in your five things lists!)

  4. Jennie I am so with you on the IKEA candles, I tend to stock up on a dozen or so each time I go. Love the pink rosy scented one and the green apple-y scented one especially, but the red and cream are lovely too. Total bargains really!

    Bailey looks an absolute darling, I've been so dog-broody for such a long time now, I hope we get a doggie soon!

    P.S Only just noticed you'd popped me into Blogs you like - thank you!

  9. Totally dig Hellocotton - so much more user friendly then Blogloving and more welcoming to the smaller blogger too I find.

  10. Bailey is so cute! I really want an instant camera, the mini one is great. Just get some string and mini pegs and hang them on the wall. I adore IKEA candles, they smell amazing and are so much cheaper than yankies. I love dresses too, plus 50's style is perfect. And I have never been on hello cotton, but may have to at some point!

  17. Lovely post sweetie :)
    I'm meant to be saving for going to New York in June but you've totally convinced me that a Fujifilm Instax is necessary! I've been in love with them for quite a while but thank you for the nudge ;)
    I've also been meaning to ask you, how pigmented would you say the vivo blushers are? My skin tone is quite similar to yours only I'm not as bold with my blush or confident with which shades would suit me haha xxx

    1. Aww yay! They're quite pigmented but can definitely be worn sheerly, just as a pretty slight touch of colour on the cheeks :) I think the colours that they have would suit pretty much everyone, they're lovely :) xoxo

  22. I live in America, so it's really funny to me to see someone outside of America wanting a dress that says 'Florida' on it haha! I wouldn't think twice about seeing a dress like that that said 'London' on it with the Big Ben all over it, I'm not sure why I'm so shocked to see someone outside of America wanting to wear a Florida dress!
