These are a few of my favourite things... just writing that title along has me singing the song from The Sound Of Music, I need to watch that film again, it's one of my all-time favourites but enough jibber jabber from me. I wanted to share with you all some of my favourite things and some of them I doubt will be a surprise. These are all things which I am loving for the winter season and have been using lately. Everything is quite girly and pretty too and are perfect for adding a bit of glamour and lux to my days.
Yankee Candles - I don't think it's a surprise to see these included in a favourites post of mine. For those of you who haven't yet seen my Yankee Candle collection post I think it shows off my obsession quite well for the brand. Sparkling Snow is the newest edition to my collection and was a gift from my lovely fiance. This was the only jar of this scent left in the shop and I love it, I must admit it was the festive name that drew me to it in the first place. It's a fresh, clean scent which really does give off the smell of snow on pine trees, it's so festive. I don't want to burn it though as the wax has glitter throughout it and is so pretty! Sugared Apple and Candy Cane Lane are new additions to my wax tart collection and are now sitting in my festive scents jar. Candy Cane Lane has the scent of candy canes (ta-dah for the surprise!) and is a really sweet scent. Sugared Apple has a real Christmassy scent to me, smelling of apples sprinkled with sugar and hints of vanilla.
Perfume - I've always loved perfume, since a young age I've loved all the different scents and the gorgeous looking bottles they come in. Perfume fragrances always remind me of people who wear them and memories from when I was younger and I love that. I always remember my mother having the Elizabeth Taylor 'White Diamonds' perfume and I was obsessed with the bottle. When I first saw Vera Wang 'Princess' I wanted the perfume purely for the bottle alone, it's so pretty with it's lilac heart shape and gold crown lid but the perfume smells gorgeous too. The scent always reminds me of getting ready for nights out when I was in my late teens and the fun times my old friends and I had. I've been wearing this perfume everyday lately and I think it's a great scent for winter.
Pearls/Jewellery In General - Since a young age I've always had an interest in jewellery and in my school year book someone commented that I'll always be known for "my blonde hair and all the jewellery", they were probably right. I haven't been wearing my jewellery lately and it's a shame as I've so much of it so when I discovered my gorgeous pale pink pearls whilst cleaning out my cupboard the other day I just had to start wearing them again. I think they're so pretty for winter and these were actually one of the first gifts my fiance ever gave me so I really should wear them.
Lipstick - Everyone who knows me knows of my obsession for lipsticks and I've quite a vast collection of brands and shades. I've been wearing my Chanel L'Exuberante a lot lately and I love the matte hot pink shade. It's probably the most expensive lipstick I own so I should wear it as often as I can. It's nice to have a little bit of luxury as part of my everyday makeup.
My Engagement Ring - The most important piece of jewellery I own if not just for the sentimental value alone. The ring is white gold with diamonds and sapphire. My fiance said he picked it as "the blue reminded him of my eyes", I'm not quite too sure about that but it certainly does match our sons eyes pretty well, maybe he could see the future whilst picking it out! I love this ring so much, it has a classic elegance I think.
These are just a few of my favourite things. What are a few of your favourite things?
