things I love right now

Today I thought I would share with you some things I am enjoying right now. I can’t believe it’s October 1st, I have no idea where the year has gone…all I can say is it’s well and truly Autumn outside; pouring rain and howling wind, just wonderful.

Nail Polish
A.K.A. my other obsession beside tights, and nowhere near as organised.

My current favourite is this Revlon one called “Tropical Temptation” (I think)

Cosy Jumpers
Just perfect for this kind of weather. This one came from store twenty one, a fairly new arrival to my little town.

My love for all things cupcakes is still going strong. The lovely scrap book album was a leaving present from my wonderful, wonderful B on the unit.

Who doesn’t love them? I have been utterly spoilt in the last few months and I’m finally learning to lose the guilt around it. These lovelies are from my “Mum2” from her holiday in Florida. Peanut Butter M&Ms are a new love of mine…actually, peanut butter in general is.

I’ve finally, at the grand old age of 23 found skincare products that work for me. My new staple is this Pink Grapefruit daily scrub. It works wonders on my skin and smells divine.

Other, un-pictured loves include

– Marmite. Some things never change. Plain old marmite on toast, Marmite cashew nuts, Marmite on a spoon…I’m not sure I’m brave enough for this though.

– Masterchef and X-factor. My guilty pleasures.

– Cuddles with Flash on the sofa. Except when he dribbles.

– Being home and able to spend as much time as I want with my family and friends.

  1. wow, you have quite a collection of nail polish there, miss Daisy! I’m loving that cosy jumper on you.

  3. Thanks for your post! I think you should go ahead and treat yourself to some eyeko makeup and get a free gift with my code! It’s the weekend after all!!

    At the moment though, am loving my cycling…even if the weather is turning super nasty…it’s all fun and freeing. I am an all-weather cyclist!

    Baking…have always loved this one.

    Masterchef…is awesome (was so sad to have missed the one over summer…the exact dates I was away for!).

    Have a good weekend. xx:)

  10. Mmmm, loving the nail polish collection, it’s very impressive. That scrap book is so cute and you look adorable in your fluffy jumper. You look so beautiful. xxx

  22. I love your nail varnish collection, I’m trying to be frugal with mine and use up some of my old ones before I buy new ones. Maybe we should organise a nail varnish swap be a great way to re-freshen our collections and get new colours?

  23. So jealous of your nail polish collection!
