On the doorstep...

Sometimes the best things are literally on your doorstep...

What is outside on your doorstep?

The lux list...

Let's face it, once all the monthly bills are paid there is never enough money left to splash out on luxury items. As a result, I find myself dreaming about luxury items on a daily basis.

Here is what I am currently lusting after:

I have always wanted a polaroid camera to have a bit of spontaneous fun with. I love the simplicity of it and lets be honest, I was a bit sad when they stopped making them. However, Fuji have come out with this beauty which I'm sure will help fill my need for instant photos.

Ok...ok so this is an item I have been looking at for fooorever (I think 2008 to be precise as it was the same time I saw Wicked in London). When I saw this in Selfridges, it was pretty much love at first sight. To be perfectly honest, if I had thought about it and saved up money, I probably would own one by now.

I have been wanting to venture into the world of Mac for ages. Ideally I wanted an iMac or a Macbook Pro, but when I was browsing the Apple store, I came across this. After speaking to staff members, it appears that this is just as powerful as an iMac. Win!

Elemis Lavender Repair Mask:
This is an item that I fell in love with after a facial at Pure Spa Aberdeen. It is a gorgeous lavender-based mask which helps to clear up any breakouts/excess oil.

Do I really need to explain my love for anything with Teacups?Combine that with some Cath Kidston and I am most definitely there...

What are you currently dreaming of?

The love for all living creatures is the most noble attribute of man...

While some of you are celebrating today as Valentine's Day, I am also celebrating today in a different way. You see today is Darwin's birthday. Darwin is my Chinese hamster who is ultimately the cheekiest hammy around and he has turned 4!!

Darwin made his blog debut back in 2010 (cringeworthy posts back then) only a few posts into what has become a glorious adventure in the blogging world. He has since become very friendly and knows what he wants (food particularly!). He is a very sweet little boy who soon wins over the affection of everyone he meets.

Happy Birthday little one!

See my post on Chinese Hamsters for more info on their care etc

Paperchase/Boots haul...

Last week, I had a few odds and ends in town to do after work. I managed to do what I wanted to do but in the process, I also went shopping. Here is what I bought:

Interior Inspo: the bathroom edition...

My bathroom is perhaps the most horrible bathroom you will ever feast your eyes on. I'm not joking when I say the walls are bright blue (almost cobalt) and the paint used is not bathroom paint. My walls are even the same colour as what the fireplace was in my living room  (that my friends is a story for another day).It is so bad that I genuinely feel embarrassed every time a guest has to go the bathroom.

As I am a pinterest addict (find me here), I have been pinning a lot of potential ideas for my bathroom that I will be ripping out later this year (hooray!)

Here are a few ideas I have pinned:

Bathroom Inspiration, Pinterest, Ameyjaney
Generally, I want to keep it light and airy as it is not that big a room. I also would like to incorporate a bit of a vintage twist to tie in with the rest of my flat. I will be ripping out the bath (takes up too much space) and instead including a large walk-in shower.
