Please can someone tell me how the weekend comes and goes so blooming fast?! For realz, I have no idea where the time has gone! However, I did manage to find a few minutes this afternoon to create a little Sunday Flatlay, I’m a little embarrassed to admit, it’s been a little while since my last one! In a few weeks, I’m going to be jetting off on holiday… answers on a postcard (or comment below) if you can guess where I’m going! Seriously, if you guess, I will be in touch and I will send you a prize, not sure what it will be yet, but there will be something!
Ray Ban Sunglasses
Every holiday, hot or cold needs a good pair of sunglasses, my current favourites are these Ray-Ban Wayfarers. Whilst you can buy these straight off the shelf, you can also go for the customisable option, which these are. I got these last Winter and I choose the lenses, the the frame shape, frame colour, everything, they even have my name engraved onto the inside of the temples.
Whilst everyone else is getting excited about winter boots and thick tights, I’m still lusting over these Summer striped beauties! They are from Boden, as are the best things in life. Seriously, head over to the Boden Website to see what they have this season, the collection is amazing!
ECCO Saddle Bag
Years ago I owned a pair of vintage ECCO snow boots, they were the cutest little boots every and they were insanely warm and comfortable. I wore them for years and years, but since then I haven’t owned any ECCO, until now! How adorable is this little ECCO Saddle Bag? I love it so much that I have been considering buying a bucket bag from there too!
Elie Saab Le Parfum
Every holiday needs a new fragrance and I’m once again obsessed with Elie Saab Le Parfum, it’s radiant like the sun with notes of orange blossom, jasmine, rose and patchouli. I forgot how much I love this perfume, it’s just beautiful! No wonder it’s such an iconic fragrance!
Jason Wu X Caudalie Face Mist
I loved this Jason Wu X Caudalie Face Mist during the summer. I kept it on my desk / kitchen table and every time I felt hot, sticky and overwhelmed with the heat, I spritzed myself with it and felt refreshed and uplifted. It can be used as a toner, radiance booster or a make-up setter, as well as a refresher. It’s heavenly, it’s one of those products you don’t need, but actually, you really do! Perfect for hot weather, post-cleanse, pre-meetings, pre-dinner and whenever you need a hit of energy and zest for your sole and your face.
Olympus Pen 17mm Lens
These days I shoot nearly everything on the Olympus Pen Camera, even my instagram photos are nearly always taken with my camera, rather than my iPhone. I recently invested in this 17mm Lens, and I have to say, I have barely taken it off in months. It’s a fixed lens and gives a great shot every time. Perfect for portraits, food, out-and-about and of course, scenery! Have you guessed where I’m going yet?!
People Tree Top
One of my favourite things I have ever gotten from People Tree, this top has lipsticks printed all over and I am obsessed with it! Their AW16 collection is pretty amazing, make sure you go check it out! I’m starting to get a pretty hefty mental wishlist looking at the website right now…
Pixi By Petra Make-up
I’m going to do more blog posts about Pixi by Petra make-up soon, but for now, just know that I love it and it’s in my make-believe holiday wardrobe. Their H20 Skin Tint is light-weight, radiant and gives a great finish and their Cheek Stains give the most beautiful melt in translucent finish. You can also use them on your lips for a coordinated and super pretty youthful look.
Smith’s Lip balm
I always get super dry lips when I’m travelling, I blame aeroplanes! I have been wanting to get my hands on these Smith’s Lip balms for a while now, mainly due to the packaging, but now I have them, I love them! I am not sure what they contain, but it feels good and I love the heavy rose scent.
I hope you are all having a lovely weekend!
I literally just gasped and said OMG THOSE SHOES! Have fun on your trip!

Ahhhh so glad you like them!!!! Any guesses where I’m going!? Xxxx
Those lips balms are fantastic, I’m a long time fan. As to where you are going…. that’s a good one. I can see the hints but they aren’t connecting for me soooo…. I have two guesses to start and one would be somewhere in Africa while the other would be south america (somewhere in the desert…maybe Mexico?) I think I’m going with the second one because of the cactus in your flat lay. Wherever you go, have a wonderful time!
Ohhhhh I may be going somewhere cold…. You never know!
