Wwake.

As a strong believer that less is more, it makes perfect sense that I’d be going crazy over my latest net-a-porter finding: Wwake. Based in New York, Wwake is a fine jewellery line focused on delicate, dainty, stackable pieces that look effortless and super chic. But don’t let the simplicity fool you, as its this same simplicity that makes the pieces truly stand out, and is why my wish list is now currently packed with beautiful gems I’ll be saving up for.

Sun Mini Mini.

I’ve been in love with Mansur Gavriel ever since they first launched on net-a-porter. And though it took me some time to admit it, I’ve been in love with mini bags for a while too. I love the unique shapes and lines that Mansur Gavriel products have, and I love how they branched out from their iconic bucket bags, to chic footwear that is just as stylish and classic. With the case of mini bags, I just love how miniature and small they are and how cute they look.

       

So imagine my delight when doing my weekly perusal, I came across Mansur Gavriel’s latest offering: the Sun Mini Mini. Sun Mini Mini has probably got to be the cutest mini bag range I’ve ever seen (sorry Fendi). Everything from the size, to the drawstring, right down to the trademark bow detail, I am in love.

     

What’s more, these cute bags come in a variety of colours… and guess what? Yes, I want them all…

Glitter and Jewels.

There have been a lot of beautiful shiny things on net-a-porter recently and I couldn’t just keep them to myself. Though I’d say my taste in jewellery has always remained pretty consistent, as I’ve gotten older I’ve seen that there’s a very specific type of jewellery that drives me while. Dainty, delicate small pieces that are so cute and feminine yet understated and not too flashy – especially when it comes to earrings.

But the thing I love the most about all these beautiful shiny things? They’re just so nice to look at, and it’s as simple as that.

I Got Them: Le Specs Air Heart.

All the way from Australia, my brand new Le Specs Air Heart sunglasses. Super chic, ultra-classic, and totally cool, I am in LOVE LOVE LOVE with these. I love how amazing they look on and I cannot wait for the summer when I can be rocking these all day every day!

Stay tuned for the tortoiseshell blue reflective lens ones. I haven’t bought them yet, but after seeing how much I love their all-black counterparts, I’m sure I’ll love them too.

Five Favourites Thursday: Things I Didn’t Buy.

And so it’s the last Thursday of the month and I can’t help but look back on all the things I promised myself I would buy, only to realise that I didn’t even make it to check out.

LE SPECS

While I may not have managed to get these this month, I’m still holding out hope that I’ll finally purchase these cool shades next month…

        

LE SPECS

In all fairness, I’m not sure I was ever 100% certain these sunglasses were for me, but it was kind of like love at first sight (in the sense that the moment I saw them I wanted them, but then the moment I clicked on another item, I’d all but forgotten about them… sad times). I suppose they are pretty cool to look out though.

       

A NEW LAPTOP

Don’t even get me started. To be honest I think I’m in denial about needing a new laptop. I know that I need one, but I’m not in the right place to say goodbye to my beloved Kevin (yes he has a name and he’s very dear to my heart) – I even feel bad typing this on him as we speak… Maybe once I get this fan fixed Kevin can stop overheating and burning my leg.

SUPERGA

I’ve needed a new pair of Superga’s since I bought my last pair, and I’ve been meaning to buy another pair, but then life happened and I kept forgetting/ couldn’t be bothered to decide between a myriad of colour/texture/style options. Life is so tough is it not?

Mallorca: Essentials

LONGCHAMP

Similar to my Superga situation, I’ve needed a new Le Pliage since I bought my last bag. And similar to my Superga situation, I was faced with the same challenges that pretty much put a stop to me fulfilling my purchasing obligations. Oh well, on the plus side I’m fairly certain that by the year’s end I’ll have another bag so I guess it’s not exactly the end of the world huh.

Maybe next month I’ll be happy to report that I actually bought everything on this list? Lol! Happy Thursday.

OMG! I AM SO IN LOVE WITH THESE SUNGLASSES!!!

   

Okay, so sorry for the caps lock and exclamation mark craziness, BUT how awesome are those shades? As you know I recently lost my favourite Margeaux sunglasses, so I’ve been using an old pair of TOMS which I’ve had for years. While I’ve loved reconnecting with these old babies, I have been on the lookout for something a little newer. Net-a-porter has been teeming with glorious options, but it wasn’t just now that I found THE ONES.

   

I love how big they are, the subtle cat-eye, the half tortoiseshell-half-who-the-hell-knows-what’s-going-on frames, the cool city style – I just LOVE LOVE LOVE them!

Oooh what I wouldn’t do to get my hands on a pair of those…

Wednesday Wish List: Luisa Black Tortoise Fade.

What started as a good day yesterday quickly descended into mayhem, full of tears and sadness. I lost my favourite pair of sunglasses :(. While I mourn the loss of Margeaux, my trusty companion, I have my eye on a new pair that are practically screaming at me through my laptop screen, begging me to buy them. Luisa is new to TOMS (you know how much I love TOMS) and comes in two colours: a black version and a blonde version.  I love how big the lens’ are, and the slight cat-eyed frame. Wouldn’t these make the perfect summer buddy?

My favourite of the two colours is the black version

 

I can’t wait to get these new sunglasses, but in the meantime I’ll be rocking my old shades.
