Favourite Spaces

So after throwing out a lot of old make up, jewellery and attempting to reorganise - I thought I would share some of these newly discovered spaces! The huge cupcake in the picture above is meant to be a cookie jar and was a birthday gift from a lovely friend (Hi Sally!). It stores lots of jewellery and looks awesome sitting on my shelf.

I recently found the white basket from a browse around the The White Company. Like the Cookie jar, it's meant for food and sold as a bread basket but I think it's just as good storing lotions and potions!  Though anything with a dual purpose for food is ALWAYS good with me. Maybe it's come with age but I love browsing home ware and the White Company, Anthropologie (the W letter is from there!) and Zara Home are some of my faves! FYI - The Owl pot was originally gifted by Not on the Highstreet.

Speaking of Anthropologie - I have another new cup to add to my collection. No, I don't actually store the cups on my window sill (but hey - they do look cute all together) I love the hand painted detail and I kind of do a little happy dance in my head when I get to use this pretty cup!
workspace
Lastly -  I should include a photo of my desk, taken very last minute for this post! I have quite a few old canvases stored away which I've never used (I totally should start painting again. The wave in the first picture was something that has survived from A Levels!). I decided to turn the old canvas into a pin board of sorts. There are a whole bunch of things I'd like to pin on there - so I'll have to Instagram it when it is fuller! Hope everyone has had an awesome weekend. I have had a super fun one hanging out with friends in London, eating and shopping in our favourite places - it was very eventful to say the least and I'll be sharing why soon!!

  23. Love your little Winnie' beauty corner,hehe....just wondering, where did you get that white tray that you use to store your perfumes? I've been looking for a tray like that for my coffee table....i couldn't help but laugh a bit when i read that white basket from the white company is a bread basket, i would had NEVR guessed! You're very creative and agree, dual function products are always a winner!!! I believe it might do with aging because i find myself luring around homeware shops a lot more nowadays too, such as Zara Home (yes, it has landed in HK recently as well!!!), Francfranc, and thats about it, lol

    Those tea cups are cute indeed! My sis was so sweet and secretly got me the C alphabet mug from Anthropologie that i kept going on and on about how much i wanted to buy it, lol
