August Favourites 2014

August has been all about the pretty things. I’ve been spending a lot of time working at my desk, catching up on deadlines, blog posts and Etsy store plans.

The pink clipboard was a couple of pounds from Staples but I can’t seem to find it online. The pen pot is IKEA, the bicycle decoration from Sainsburys, the candle is Kikki K and the jar is Ashley Thomas for Debenhams. (Not all new of course!). The fabric frame art is a DIY I shared here.

On-My-Desk

As most of you know, I’m a big Filofax geek, so I repurposed this wooden box I found for £1 in a charity shop for all my supplies. It holds my Project Life Journalling cards, twine, glue sticks, erasers, pens and sticky notes.

Craft Storage

I purchased this cat washi tape from a fellow Instagram stationery addict who found it in a store in Sweden.

Continuing the stationery theme, I’ve been enjoying using this handmade leather notebook which G got me a few years ago on a holiday in Portugal. If you have ever given me a business card, it is stapled into this notebook with a handwritten note added.

After discovering Benu at Renegade Craft Fair last autumn, I’ve had my eye on their leather pom pom necklaces. This month I snapped one up and I love it!!

Continuing the necklace theme, I picked up this donut pendant in the La La Land sale as well as some pencils from their Popcult pencil range which is just AWESOME.

Brownie points to those of you who can guess the TV show these quotes are from! Take a guess in the comments below…..

I’m still deciding what to use these cardboard floral suitcases for. They were fairly inexpensive at £6.99 for the set and I picked them up from The Works.

My beauty favourite for the month is the Body Shop Seaweed Ionic Clay Mask. This year I’ve had a proper skin care regime which includes this mask once a week.

Now these Carvela sneakers are a definite favourite for the way they look BUT they gave me the biggest blisters ever on a recent trip to Norfolk to watch G sky dive. I had to stuff tissues in my socks on the train ride, due to the lack of plasters. So sparkly though!

Glitter-Converse-Sneakers

My last favourite is this super duper cute tin which looks like a cake slice. I might have to start taking it to parties for take away cake ha! It was only £2 from Hobbycraft and they have tons of other cake and biscuit tins in the range.

G and I have also been enjoying Netflix (late to the party!) and we are currently binge watching Orange Is The New Black and enjoying the odd episode of Adventure Time. What have your favourites been for August?

Toodles!
