Five Things I Love Friday 017 - On a Saturday because I forgot yesterday! Oops!

One. Hero & Cape.

Hero & Cape are nothing short of fabulous & I've just pinched a bit of their press release to give you an idea of what they're about because they say it better than I ever could!

"Hero & Cape are a brand new British fashion label that makes you the hero of the story, with unique original hand drawn illustration & screen printed T-Shirts! We promise to be a T-Shirt brand with a difference by incorporating fashion and hand drawn graphics. The illustrations are the work of one very talented graphic designer, Niki Lau!"

I think they've got some amazing designs & they really do deserve all the support in the world, they're wonderful! You can keep up with what they're up to on Twitter @HeroAndCape.

Two. Glasses. 

Thank you for all your feedback on my post a couple of days ago about my new specs. Pretty much all of you said you really liked them both, you're either being way too nice or I picked some nice frames haha. I think I got a couple of people saying they're too big for my face but that's exactly what I wanted. I have a huge face, I'm talking really big here & small and subtle frames instantly add half a stone & make my face look chubby. I'm all about the statement glasses, it's just me! I've decided to get both pairs because Glasses Direct have amazing deals! Free second pair AND 20% off AND free delivery, err yes please!!

Three. Witch Products. 

There have been quite a lot of Witch giveaways held on various blogs recently & I've been lucky enough to win quite a few items. I have dry skin & I wasn't expecting anti-blemish products to work so well for me but I'm really impressed with them - especially the pressed powder! I think I might do a post on them, if anyone's interested?

Four. Nice weather!
I'm not a big fan of super hot weather & blazing sunshine, but I do like nice temperatures & sitting in the garden with a good book during warm summer evenings. This summer in my little part of the UK has been rubbish. Lots & lots of rain! But I think things are starting to look up now, fingers crossed!

Five. Instagram. 
Hands down my favourite app ever! I was always super jealous of anyone with an iPhone because they'd always have all these lovely little snaps of their lives but now I can join in on the fun!

What's your favourite design from the Hero & Cape website?
