Loves Lately

I have to be honest, I only bought these makeup brushes because I knew they would look good on my dressing table. I've been eyeing up the Real Techniques Bold Metal Collection, and I've toyed with the idea of investing in some Zoeva brushes, but I knew I was only being pulled in by the aesthetics - my Sigma Essential Kit is still serving me well. So when I spotted these affordable rose gold and cream makeup brushes from H&M, there wasn't a moment of hesitation before I added them to my virtual basket. Visuals aside, they're actually beautifully soft brushes and apply makeup well. The Kabuki brush is the perfect size for popping in my handbag for powder top-ups throughout the day, and the blush brush closely resembles one of my pricier duo fibre MAC brushes.

The gold glitter clutch is another gem from H&M. The small structure and hard cased shell means it's ideal for carrying essentials - iPhone, cards and a few notes - with you on a night out. It looks a lot more expensive than it actually was (a mere £4 in the sale) and I just love how much it sparkles with golden goodness in the light.

When I spotted the white and gold bangle, (another H&M find), it felt reminiscent of the ever popular Hermes Clic Clac bracelet, but I actually prefer this understated version, without any obvious logo. I'm sure I'll be wearing this a lot come spring/summer. And finally, my dreamy new notebook from Homesense. I do love an inspiring quote, so it's a match made in heaven when it's embossed with gold lettering onto a white faux leather notebook. This will have pride of place on my desk when I get my new office sorted!
