Little Treasures.

Moving places often means that I end up losing, and occasionally finding little gems that are near and dear to my heart. By nature, I am a hoarder. I get very attached to items because I attach very specific memories to them, and to see them go often pains my heart. So I have a lot of 'stuff', despite giving six bin bags full of things to charity a few weeks ago... Some of my most treasured pieces aren't particularly expensive, and some aren't even valuable - more so things I have found or remembered and I'm quite in love with at the moment.
Gold Leaf Necklace from Yasumi's shop | I can't quite remember how Yasumi and I e-met, but I do know it was about two - three years ago. I was captivated by the blog she ran with her husband Hiro and their appetite for finding the beauty in what most would consider the mundane. I bought this leaf necklace from Yasumi in Autumn 2016 - almost a year ago now! And it remains one of my favourites. 
Irish Cream Coffee by Beanies (Stolen from my sister..) | It's no secret that I've replaced blood with coffee. I found half a jar of Irish cream coffee in the tea cupboard and thought mmm this sounds relish, let's give it a whirl, and from that moment I was hooked. Much to my sisters dismay, I've now just finished the jar and I'll be re-ordering some soon. It's coffee but with a much warmer hug, perfect those "fffffffhhhhh!' days.
Book gifted to me by my friend Domi | After I spent a good two weeks post my degree show in May / June lying motionless in bed, eating my weight in Chinese food and crying out all the exhaustion and stress I had kept pent up, my slightly worried flatmate kindly presented me with Amanda Lovelace's 'the princess saves herself in this one' after seeing one too many sad Insta story of me fervently reading Rupi Kaur's 'Milk & Honey'. If you like myself are into that genre of poetry, you may also like Lovelace's pieces.
Flowers & Shadows | Working from home / my desk means I get to enjoy the suns rays dancing about my bedroom. My sister brought home a bouquet of roses last night and I always get so unreasonably happy when there are fresh flowers in the house. I feel like it's a good omen or something - Am I the only one who thinks the same? I've always thought of flowers as the pinnacle of romance (for me anyway) and I've only ever been bought flowers once in my life, by two of my friends for my eighteenth birthday many moons ago. My favourites are white tulips.

Have a lovely bank holiday weekend friends!

  1. I am a big hoarder as well, and I always end up finding really cute stuff whenever I clean, just like last week. I realize I literally keep everything people give me, even the smallest drawing and card.
    I love poetry so I would really checkout this books, milk and honey has been in my amazon card for so long and I think it is time to finally buy it.
