Favourite Things


Favourite lip products

- I am cursed with chapped lips, this coupled with my anxious lip biting leads to some pretty unattractive lips. I have however, found a mix of products that I love and have really worked for me and my desert lips.  Nuxe R√™ve de Mie is a perfect nighttime savior. It is heavy, so it really isn't the best for day to day wear unless you are conservative with the application. Homeoplasmine is a french product I picked up in Paris after some blog searching. It doubles as a talking point as it is also nipple cream (apparently). It is the best nipple cream I have ever had on my face. I have no idea how it works but it is the quickest and most effective fix I have found for my lips. Finally Smith's Rosebud Salve is the perfect every day one. Lightweight, pretty smell and a slight hint of colour. Just make sure it doesn't melt in your bag, but if it did I could relate to you.



My favourite guy graduated in July on the only day in Glasgow to not rain and be above 20 degrees. In a 100% wool kilt and robe he was a happy-hot bunny. I am very proud of this little hard worker who graduated with a distinction in Chemical Engineering. I am slightly bitter knowing his first wage though.


Bag- & Other Stories

I am into mini bags. I have always been a big bag kinda girl- just in case I saw an abandoned puppy and needed to carry it to the vet (my house), but there is something intensively satisfying about not having to sift through a sea of receipts and bobby pins to find my phone. With a mini bag you have to rationalise the junk you carry around on a daily basis. I attribute my new better posture to mini bags- no longer am I dragged down by a bag full of every lipstick I own.

With love from,

  4. Haha, nipple cream - that's a new one! God to know it works though!
    I'm a big fan of mini bags too - that one is gorgeous! - although i'm also incredibly unorganised, meaning that i end up struggling to fit all my junk into anything smaller than a holdall...

    1. I can't say I have tested it for purposes intended. It works in 3 other ways though.
      Haha, I can empathise, it is so hard to rationalise.

  6. My boyfriend graduated with an engineering degree too and I know I'll be envious of his starting wage too!
    That's interesting about the nipple cream too! You never know what products will have multiple uses!

  7. Haha, love the thought of using nipple cream - I don't even want to know how you came across using that though!

    Lovely little bag - gorgeous colour, although not great for carrying abandoned pets home in.

    1. Internet, that's how I found out about the nipple cream. My search history isn't that weird I swear.

      Except hamsters, dwarf ones. I may be able to squeeze one in around my purse and phone.

  8. I'm obsessed with lipbalms. I just buy them even if I really don't need them at all! I need to reign myself in! xxx

    1. Lip balms are easy to pick up as a spur of the moment purchase. They always have them at the tills so some just happen to fall into your cart. I hope you find the perfect one for you!

  10. Lovely post. That bag is really cute! I have a big bag and am always worried that it's ruining my posture. Maybe I should invest in a smaller bag too. :)

    1. It is oddly liberating having a mini bag. I highly recommend!

  13. I love the look of mini bags like that one. I wish they were magically bigger than they appear, though, because I always have loads of bulky things, like notebooks and my camera, that I want to cart around with me.
