I am a sucker for all things pretty, I love pretty things and there is nothing I love better than to wear pretty things. Whether that is a flowery vintage shirt with 70s style collar or the prettiest pair of little earrings I have ever worn, it makes me me and there is something so great about that. I was born 27 years tomorrow and as I write this my birthday falls on Thursday, 24th January of course and as I here the number 27 it really does scare me. To think I have been alive for 27 years, that is maddness and I sound so old. I question my life and where it has led me, I question everything. I question why I haven't found a man in my life yet, I question why I haven't got a lot of friends and I question why the only guy that made my heart skipped a little beat was looking through a fancy shoe shop window with Bex in Covert Garden. Like my grandma used to say, nothing ever stays the same and my gosh wasn't she right about that?
So as today is my last day of being 26 I wanted to do a little blog post of some of my favourite 'pretty things'. So I start off with a photo of my idol who I have adored for some time now and have featured her in my blog lots and lots of times. My queen and inspiration in life, Marilyn Monroe. I love this woman and she gives me so much joy and happiness. This photo, I came across on a facebook page of Marilyn today, taken in 1953 I believe. I haven't seen this photo in truly a really long time and just wanted to share this on Lottie's Lott today.
I fell in love with & Other Stories a tiny bit more when I came across their Covert Garden store in London at the weekend. The store was huge and had some amazing things including all of this make up which I barely have seen in the Leeds store so hence why I had to take a photo but their make up just looked so classy and pretty I really just could not resist. Also I would love to know if anyone has tried their makeup?
I had to mention these little Cloud Paints, I won't say a lot on them as I have just done a Glossier blog review about their products but these cloud paints are perfect for when you just want to add a little bit of colour to your face and perhaps just having 'one of those days'. I love these little blush's and they are such a cool idea.
If you have followed me on here or my instagram for a while now you will know that I absolutely adore these two; Pattie Boyd and George Harrison. Firstly, George is my favourite beatle and well Pattie is just an inspiration and such a 60s icon. Both of these photos were taken on their honeymoon which are too die for. I will alway love these two, the cutest couple ever.
And last but not least my absolute favourite person. Ahhh, this little lady and I met way back last year in April. Within seconds of meeting her, we just clicked and has become the loveliest friend in the world. She is beautiful inside and out and has a heart of gold. Thank you for the most wonderful time in London with you and Kieran.
