Charity shop brass swans - I found these in the glass case at a charity shop and although they're a little tarnished, I still love them ~ Muji kinchak bag - This was in the sale, I love the print and handy to use for my camera paraphernalia (batteries, sd cards etc) ~ MAC lipstick in Chatterbox & Top Shop nail enamel in Remember My Name - It's spring and time for pink! ~ Oh Comely and Frankie magazines - Two new magazines for me, I hear such good things about Frankie but have never been able to find it before ~ Ebay turbans - I'm mad on these at the moment, I want them in even more colours! ~ Library books - I have now renewed Lolita three times at the library, I am determined to finish it! ~ Antique shop vintage plate - Bought for £1 at an antique shop ~ Etsy vintage crochet collars - I've been looking for these forever and finally found two at a very good price. They really brighten up simple tee shirts and sweaters ~ Top Shop faux snakeskin ballet flats - I buy and wear simple black ballet shoes repeatedly until they wear out, usually from French Sole, my last pair were from Russell & Bromley but they have finally worn out after three years, I'm sure at £16 these will not last as long. We shall see. ~ Keatley & Co mini tote - Sent by a blog friend - check out the shop ~ Top Shop Antique boots - A sale buy which really do seem to go with everything

  34. whimsically random - a canon eos 1000d

    bryden & claire - i hardly ever buy magazines anymore, so it was quite a treat to find these, i'll definitely be looking out for frankie again, i love it. also, good to hear from locals :-)

    the doll - yes, i have found it mostly uncomfortable reading, a little seedy in fact, but i hear such amazing things about it so feel i should get to the end

    a certain vintage - the asos collar is lovely too

    susu - thanks for the rec, i'm not familiar with her
