Little Luxuries



I'm a typical girl in that I love pretty things! If I see an item when I'm out and about and it makes me smile or feel inspired then I usually snatch it up. Having such items around me helps fuel my creative streak. It can be anything from wall art, a notepad, a quote on a postcard, or even old magazines from years gone by. There's a great odds and ends shop in Windermere that sells issues from as far back as the eighties for 50p each. Great for making collages and mood boards!
 
I also love affordable glamour for the same reason, and because it usually makes me feel better about myself. Who doesn't feel a bit more confident when wearing a new nail polish or sparkly necklace? As such I had been after a piece of statement jewellery for a while albeit minus the hefty price tag. One of my first stops was eBay. Low and behold I found this little beauty (in photo) for under ten pounds! The pink fluffy jumper - another second hand treasure from eBay - was a spontaneous buy. Technically speaking I didn't buy the notebook - it was a gift from a friend - but you can bet your bottom dollar I'd have bought it first if I'd have seen it! My friends know me so well! :)
 
Have you treated yourselves to any little luxuries recently?
 
Here's hoping this week treats you all kindly.
 
Lots of Love Justine xxx
