Five Things & Five Blogs I'm Loving This Friday #48

Happy Friday! I'm so ready for the weekend and I'm pretty excited that it's finally nearly here. Saturday's are usually pretty quiet for me but I've got lots of things on my to-do list that I'm looking forward to getting ticked off. Most of them are pretty fun things though so lets go weekend, I'm ready for you!
+ My bookshelf
Not all of my books are together, which makes me a little sad, but I'm slowly but surely gathering them all together and seeing this little bookshelf come together is really making me smile. It's not the most organised and my flower lights keep unsticking themselves but that's okay, it all adds to the charm, right?!

+ Bunny Earrings*
These were a wonderful & very much appreciated gift from John Greed along with two other pieces (the prettiest necklace ever & a sweet bracelet!) that I'm going to be giving away next week, just as a little thank you to you for always being so supportive and lovely to me. I think these are so fun and they're dainty enough to be really comfortable and easy to wear, which are my favourite kind! I have a feeling these will be the only earrings I want to wear for a little while...!

+ Tom's Midnight Garden
This is a book I had to read earlier this week for University and I fell in love with the story from the very first chapter. It turned into one of those books I couldn't put down and two hours later I was crying happy tears at the ending. Books aren't really written like this one is any more, I mean, nothing much really happens but that really adds to its charm without making it seem like a struggle to get through. Lovely, just lovely!

+ Stila Colour Me Pretty Palette 
So...I've had this for a little while now and I've still barely touched it because it's just TOO darn pretty. I know how ridiculous that sounds and I bought it to use it, but I just can't bring myself to ruin its prettiness just yet. I'm not a fan of the packaging but the colours are so lovely I don't even really mind that much! 

+ Waiting Game by Banks
This song seems to have found its way on to every single one of my go-to playlists at the moment without me even realising. I think it's because it's one of those songs that's perfect to have on in the background, it's not too distracting and it's waaaay better than trying to work in silence. *hits replay* 

+ Ice Pandora
+ Bright Field Notes
+ Lipstick Lives
+ More Rebe
+ Sugar Spun Sisters

Do you have any exciting weekend plans?

Love, Jennie 
xoxo

  5. I love that your wand is on the Harry Potter books. Your bookcase looks amazing! I feel pretty sad that my books are in two different houses that are miles away of each other. But one day they're going to be back together.
