Monday Musings

A week today it’s my birthday day, and if I was being really clever (and a little sneaky) I would be using today’s Monday Musings as an opportunity to drop some hints (and links)!  But, some of the items you’ll see in today’s post are already winging their way to my doorstep, so here’s hoping that for once the hubs isn’t paying attention! If they arrive and are keepers I’ll share on Instagram at some point, till then, let’s get musing!

I’m yet to find my perfect wicker, woven or wooden summer bag since returning the Cult Gaia purchase, but I’ve just ordered this super-cute and terribly impractical netted beauty from Freepeople.  It’s a steal at £24 (well there’s not much to it though so maybe it’s actually a rip off) and I’m hoping it’ll fill the gap in my arm candy collection.

Although we’re starting to see the first hints of new season collections arriving into store and on the World Wide Web, the sales are still my first port of call.  You know I’m a sucker for stripes and this Mango embroidered blouse mixes boho and bold stripes to perfection.  If you’re still adding to your summer holiday wardrobe this would be a great addition at only £19.99.  I’ll be wearing mine to travel in, then at the beach over swimwear.  The same search page also threw up this denim delight which I just had to include.  I won’t be purchasing as I have a white blouse that is very similar and people always ask me about.  Unfortunately the brand is no longer in business so this a great alternative.

Summer and sliders go hand in hand now don’t they, well soles in sandals really but you know what I mean.  Last week I was tracking down the perfect pair for a client, and with my own sliders on their last legs these Carvela flatform espadrilles caught me eye.  Expensive looking with comfort, style and in a neutral tan colour palette they will go with every aspect of your summer wardrobe, and give you that leg lengthening look most of us crave when wearing flats.

I couldn’t round up this week without a bit of beauty.  I picked up a sample of the new Clinque hydrating jelly and was very impressed with how hydrating it is, and let’s face it, I’m about to clock up another year so my skin needs all the help it can get right now!

I might be late to the game with this one but I’m desperate to get my hands on a Charlotte Tilbuy lipstick or two.  I’m very much a gloss girl as it’s much lower maintenance than a lipstick, but after borrowing my top MUA best friends’ Pillow Talk the other day I’m hooked.  Now all I need is her discount card!

And there you have it, another week of musings for Monday done and directly linked below is anything takes your fancy.  I might not post next week, did I mention it’s my birthday, so I might have the day off.

Have a good one lovely peeps!
