February Non Beauty Favourites.


In my eyes you can never really go wrong with a pair of cosy slippers with owls on and I would even go so far as to say if it were socially acceptable to wear these all day every day, I totally would. These were a Christmas gift, I believe from New Look, and I love them very much!
I made these! I am so pleased with how these little guys came out, even if I did almost sew my fingers to them on more than one occasion. These were the result of my first encounter with a sewing machine in many many years, I remember having to do textiles at school and I was awful at it but with a bit of perseverence this time I managed to make these mini owl pillows. They have been sitting proudly on my bed for a little while now and I've even gone out and bought my own sewing machine (it's pink!) so I can attempt to make some more. Sometimes crafty afternoons are the best things ever!
Bunny Night Light♦ (£4.95)

This little guy is from DotComGiftShop and there are no words to describe how cute he is. He has taken pride of place on my bedside table and I think he looks lovely, especially considering how inexpensive he is. There's also a slightly smaller bunny night light that I have my eye on, it seems only right to have a pair! 
Nikon1 V1

The newest addition to my camera collection has been in my bag pretty much every single day. I had been after a little point & shoot digital camera for a little while because some days I really don't feel like carrying a big DSLR, but I did want one that would offer me a little more control. This isn't as small as perhaps I would have liked, but you can interchange lenses which is a huge plus for me. I also love the way it looks, which ultimately is pretty irrelevant but I can't help it! 


Pyramid Necklace
Love Hearts & Crosses is one of my all time favourite online jewellery stores. The sheer variety of pieces stocked never ceases to amaze me & if there's something you're looking for, you're almost guaranteed to find it nestled somewhere on the site. I've been really loving wearing a simple black skater dress with this pyramid necklace recently. I seem to be going through a bit of a black clothing phase and I really like how this necklace perks the whole outfit up a little. It's one of those 'go with anything' pieces I think, lovely!
The Photography Book. (£5.95)

Just because, well, we all need a little bit of inspiration every now and again, don't we? This little book has been pretty much everywhere with me and to be honest, I have a lot to thank it for! 
YOU!

Honestly, you're my favourite every month, but especially this month. Thank you, so so much, for such sweet comments/emails/tweets about my last post. I know I've still not managed to get back to some of you but I will, I promise! It was one of those 'I'm not sure if I should really post this' kind of posts, not because of anything in particular, but you just never know what kind of a response (if any!) you're going to get and you know, your kind words mean the world, they really do. Thank you!

What were some of your non-beauty favourites this month?

  19. Those owl cushions!! Genuinely impressive. I'm always so gutted with my lack of crafting skill. It's not I don't try: I really do- which makes it all the more tragic! I love those wee owl cushions though, amaze. I've seen thy nightlight so often now, I think I might have to treat myself. Dammit xx

  25. The Nikon Camera looks good, I'm after something a little smaller than a DSLR too - i feel like a right creep carrying it out sometimes!!! I don't know why, i just feel uncomfortable, I probably just need to get a grip and shrug it off! I shall check out the V1, i like the sounds of interchangeable lens too! x

  27. Following you back! That camera looks so pretty even though I probably wouldn't know how to use it. I also totally agree with the cozy slippers, though in my case, it's pairs of cozy fluffy socks I've been wearing all winter.
