Friday Finds…

Another friday is here and with it some finds….

We mentioned Red Hat No Knickers’ as a place to get affordable vintage online and now, dangerously, we have stumbled across another little place for affordable vintage, Apple Branches Vintage on etsy. So cute and not too dear. Oh dear!

Have a little look at Smokehouse a Smith Journal video.

WARNING It will make you want to go live in the woods, hunt and cut down trees, even if you are a lady.

You can preorder Rohan’s book Whole Larder Love here.

If last weeks post has you still thinking about the silliness of love and romance, Two Cures for Love is a delightful read, it is a sweet and humourous selection of poems on love by Wendy Cope.

You can get it here.

We are looking forward to all the tracks of foxes being reunited this weekend! Yesssss!

Hope that your weekends are glorious and full of food, fun and friends!

Happy Friday!!!

Dress Up: Mac Tinted Lip Conditioner

Mac make up has been a staple in my makeup bag since I was seventeen. My mum made the mistake of trying to help me become a woman by taking me to get makeover. I have been addicted to their eyeshadow and lip stuff ever since!

For a while now they have done this amazing tinted lip conditioner with SPF 15 that also tastes amazing. It tastes almost like a cross between vanilla wafers and a cupcake! YUM!

It is but a mere £11 to buy and you can get 3 different colours. Fuchsia fix is the best though, in my humble opinion, looking super bright in the pot but going on with the perfect amount of pink to brighten, gloss, condition and protect your lips!

Can you tell I am convinced!? My problem is remembering to actually put it on my lips rather than just eat it!

Get involved but don’t eat too much just because it tastes nice, it makes you feel sick.

I know.

Make Do Mend: Old shoes, new shoes.

I never love straps that come across the ankle on me because a) It makes my legs look even shorter and b) It makes me look like I have flipper duck feet. So combine short short legs with flipper duck feet and I really don’t love it.

So, with these little sandals,  from Dorothy Perkins for a mere £15, I took a Stanley knife to them and voila! If you find shoes that are cheap enough for you to customise then grab a Stanley knife and give it a go!

New shoes.

Careful though, don’t stab yourself!

Found: Thx, thx, thx – a thank you note a day!

I came across this blog recently and straight away spent AGES scrolling through the funny, cute and sometimes downright weird thank you notes by Leah Dieterich. Her mum always told her to be thankful so Thx thx thx is her daily exercise in gratitude. There’s always something to be grateful for… even if it is for the boy who wore hippy skirts at high school!

A damp weekend in pictures…

This weekend was damp. Think it’s fair to say that Fall has err.. Fallen?

French toast and fried apples make a good weekend breakkie!!

Society Cafe in Bath boast some clever design! Treat for your tummy AND your eyes!

Sunday raining afternoon: Film, Cuppa, Blanket.

Celeste’s favourite google search … have a ‘gander’. Hah!

A cheery street name for a dreary day!

Celeste had a beautiful facetime, with her bestie in Aus, which turned into a cooking class! p.s. if you know what’s good for you you’ll be watching Australian Masterchef! True Fact!

AND she has just found this beautiful little place to be her home with her hubby to be!! (Stole this pic off his instagram… sorry Aaron, Jules said it would be ok!)

Happy monday get out your wellies and scarves!!

Friday finds on a Saturday..

Apologies for the late post. Yesterday was spent on the couch smothered in deep heat and popping painkillers like candy. (That was hyperbolic, Mum, don’t worry I had them at the accepted 4 hour intervals!)

Better late than never here is something to lust after for your house, some sweet artwork and something for your belly on these chilly autumn days.

For your house:

This beautiful peacock chair from ‘The Family Love Tree.’ Maybe I’ll bring one back from Aus when I’m out there? Not sure about luggage allowance? There are butt loads of beautiful things to ‘crush on’ on their website quilts, pillows, chairs.

Some seriously sweet artwork by Ghostpatrol:

 The GhostPatrol website has some lovely images to get lost in from sketchbook drawings to Gocco prints. Do it… Have a look, I dare you! (sorry, that was a bit aggressive.. look if you want.)

And as the days grow more and more crisp we are definitely heading into Hot Chocolate territory.. Here is Jamie Oliver’s recipe for the Best Hot Chocolate.

 

Play around with it though, add some Baileys, Rum, Coconut Milk, Nutella, a mint hershey’s kiss??

Happy weekend… make some nice hot chocolate.

And maybe a baileys one for us foxes?

Thank you please!

Found: OhhDeer.com

After smashing some sushi in my face and washing some tramadol down with diet coke I realised, with 15 minutes left of lunch, that I needed to come up with a little post for today.

So, OhhDeer.com is somewhere that I regularly find myself putting things in my online basket and never checking out. Sometimes that works well. You feel as though you scratched your shopping ‘itch’ and then sometimes it’s depressing because no beautiful and magic packages arrive at your door.

Anyway, it is full of fun, beautiful, mystical art work that is entirely reasonable in price.

Some of my favourite illustrators are featured Jamie Mitchell… Who doesn’t want a polar bear with a beanie on called BOB!?

Sandra Dieckmann … ‘Hello bear on the back of an eagle with laser eyes!’

and Mark Callaby with his err .. ‘Great tits!’ hahaha!

Enjoy perusing this sweet website chockas full of beautiful illustrations.. before you know it half a day is gone and your pretend online shopping basket is full as a gook!

Still got 6 minutes left… Coffee?

xx Celeste
