I thought a fun little series this year, would be to show (maybe each month) something I've bought, made and have been gifted. I'm not a stickler for rules so it's going to be pretty flexible but if you want to join in yourself, you know you're more than welcome :)
I bought this little collar for Gremlin from Rocky and Julio last year, it's really sweet and has inspired me to try and make him a few other neckties this year - will see!
I might be cheating a little this month with my made choice but I really just wanted an excuse to show off my diary :p I did buy the diary and I was gifted or bought the stickers but I did stick them on the front - lol, does that count? Told you I'm not a stickler (pun pun!!) for rules :p
Last year for my birthday, my lovely cousin gifted me with a coupon for vegan online. I was umming and ahhing for a good few months on how to spend my voucher and in the end decided to go with a few beauty fun things. The littliest container is a vanilla musk perfume, which comes in a balm and is by Pure Gaisha, I've never tried a balm perfume before but overall the application is super easy! I also got some sunscreen and can definitely give two thumbs up to this Natio 50+ (trying to put a little more effort this year into thinking of what I'm putting on my skin). Lastly, the adorn container is an illuminiser. I've been curious about this (new!?) trend of putting highlights on your skin and wanted to try it out myself. When I do wear makeup, I've been adding the highlighting to my routine (just cheekbones and under my brows), not sure you can really notice on my super pale skin but then I also don't mind it being subtle either. I'm also unashamedly a fan of anything potentially pixie dust related :)
