Let's start the week with something pretty, shall we? Have you checked out Anthropolgie lately? So many lovely things. Let me show you a few of my favourites.Read More
Has anyone been to Ikea lately? As a stationery addict the paper shop is always my favourite section. I fell in love with their new Mangfald range as soon as I saw it. Gift wrap, boxes, stickers and washi tape in lovely matte and shiny papers covered in gold accented leopard print, tigers and watermelons. What's not to love? I bought two of everything. I know, I know, I have a problem but how could I resist?

Has anyone else fallen in love with the Prisma app? It was recently released on android and I'm obsessed. Basically it's an app that lets you put filters on your photos to make them look like paintings in the style of famous artists.
I've been playing around with it for the last couple of days and I love the results. Here are a few of my favourites and the filters I used.

I'm obsessed with all the Korean beauty products that are finally beginning to appear in U.K. shops. I love the colourful, kitschy packaging although some of the strange ingredients (snail extract moisturiser, anyone?) might take a little getting used to. Here's 12 Korean beauty products I can't wait to try.
This stuff is made from snail extract, yes, you read that right. Snail extract. I've got to admit I'm a bit wary about the idea of putting snail goop on my face but I've heard good things about this all-in-one moisturiser. Apply to cleansed skin for silky soft hydrated skin.
An adorable bunny shaped skin-balancing facial mist. Just spray and go for a fresh balanced, beautiful finish.
This moisturiser contains macadamia seed oil, shea butter and sweet almond oil to gently nourish the skin. I've tried the original one and it smells amazing so I'll be looking out for the mint and strawberry scented ones next.
It seems like there's one of these masks for every skin problem, avocado to nourish, lemon to tighten or pomegranate for elasticity and more. You can get one of each in this pack of 11 here. These masks are formulated with natural ingredients specially chosen to brighten, tighten and hydrate. Simply lay the sheet on cleansed skin and let the magic happen.
If I was going to buy a cream for the packaging alone this honey based cream would be the one. This apple scented cream moisutisers and exfoliates the skin using manuka honey, royal jelly and propolis.
A rich moisturiser that brightens and hydrates the skin. This quick acting cream will get to work right away, rejuvenating and refreshing for soft, healthy skin.
Another cream I'd buy just the packaging. Seriously, how cute is that panda? This hand cream has a subtle fruity scent that leaves the skin with a fresh and radiant glow.
This fun and bubbly carbonated mask is everywhere. It cleanses pores by pushing dirt and impurities to the surface of the skin. Apply the mask to your skin for 5 minutes, wait for the bubbles to form before adding some water and removing.
This site has an excellent tutorial showing you exactly how to use this product if you want to know more.
These coconut-infused masks hydrate and cool. Perfect for replenishing the skin and leaving it soft and supple.
More adorable animal packaging. This time peach and cotton candy cat shaped lip balms. Bye bye chapstick, I'd rather have one of these in my bag any day of the week.
This cooling eye stick promises to de-puff tired eyes and ease dark circles. Keep in your bag and apply throughout the day for a quick pick me up. Life-saver.
