Yarnspiration 💕

I have been thinking about freshening up my living room, the walls and sofa are already mid grey with oak flooring, a grey rug and a mix of white and oak furniture.

Its just a bit boring now, so I want to introduce shades of mustard, teal and maybe plum so I got out my yarn pegs and had a play!!

my first option is……

OLYMPUS DIGITAL CAMERA

Colours are Stylecraft Special DK in – Emperor, Graphite, Sunshine, Teal and Silver.

Love this combo but though that the sunshine maybe a bit too bright yellow, sooooo dig around in the yarn pegs a bit more and…….

Think I love this combo even more, these ones are Stylecraft Special DK in the colours –  Silver, Emperor, Gold, Teal & Graphite 💜

Right, off to the shops soon in search of cushions etc!! 😄

My little box – May edition

One of my favourite little treats to myself every month is the arrival of my subscription box. I have been subscribing to My little box for over a year now and I love it!

This is a French based beauty and lifestyle box and every month has a different theme.

I thought I’d share the May edition – the Dolce Vita box – an Italian themed box, the packing is always so pretty.

Inside this months box there were a couple of lifestyle items, a cute ring which is a really pretty leafy design and a turban/headband which I doubt i’ll use much unless its to keep my hair out of my face when applying makeup.

also you get a selection of beauty products in a canvas bag, a magazine and an artwork card.

The perfume is La Fille de L’air – Its quite strong when you first apply but settles quite nicely – not really one I would wear all the time, but perfect as a handbag sized perfume for emergencies!

There is a body oil by Baija – Green tea and jasmine scented and this is my favourite item in the box so far, I found it lovely to apply and found that the scent lasted well.

There is also an illuminating moisturiser for legs, this has gradual tan in and a nice lemony smell, I have not used this one much yet so haven’t seen the tanning effects of it.

Overall I really like this months selections and I think I’ll use most of it.
