Copper Obsessed

For about 2 years now, I've developed a bit of an unhealthy obsession with copper. Everytime I'm out in a homeware or department store; it's always the thing that catches my eye. Most of the time it's usually junk / sprayed on / the colour of copper. But sometimes I get some real gems!

Working out / gym gear

About a month ago I decided to buy a fitness tracker.... as it was my first time looking into fitness trackers and I didn't know if it would work for me I decided to find the best cheap one out there. I went for the Xiaomi Mi Pulse 1S. I've used Xiaomi before as I've ordered some phone chargers etc and I've loved their products

Let's talk... eyebrows

For the longest time (nb. before I turned 20) I didn't really do anything with my eyebrows aside from the odd plucking session - apart from an unfortunate event when I was 11 with a pair of scissors which ended up in a bald patch!

Sicne then, I've become an eyebrow fan - they really do 'make' your face and if done well, make you look, younger, older, go with your make up. Whatever you feel like.

Recently I've been using these three above, the HI Impact brows, brow perfecter, the Rimmel Brow this Way gel and my trusty The Vintage Cosmetic Company tweezers and of course my favourite eye cream from Eucerin. 


One thing I've learned along with way: don't over pluck - in this case more is more. It will take ages to grow back those few hairs you've plucked and you'll have that surprised / angry look for weeks! Instead, just pluck the few over grown hairs you have at the top or bottom, use scissors to trim (carefully) and brow gel and powder / pencil to shape.

What do you use for brow maintenance? Any great products to recommend?

Home decor wishlist

Lately I've been really into minimising my home decor and just life in general. From re-organising clothes and clearing out old make up to changing up the whole look of my home decor. It was all inspired by this book: The life changing magic of tidying by Kon mari / Marie Kondo

The new look I envisioned is very much neutral, natural tones with splashes of copper. So wood, metal, white subway tiles and exposed brick (What I'd love in my house, unfortunately I rent a dated 1970 build at the moment so can only change decor items!),

The pieces above I've fallen in love with!

The copper lamp is from Etsy - you can find it here.

The light grey duvet cover set is from H&M home.

Next, the metal boxes which I think are just brilliant for storage and kind of timeless - are from Zara home

This cute little cup and saucer are also from H&M home - I love the copper spots!
HM cup

Lastly, what kind of copper fan would I be if I didn't have copper saucepans. These beauties are from John Lewis and cost quite a lot - but so worth it!


What are your favourite home decor pieces at the moment? What shops would you recommend?
