Pretty Little Spring Things

Featured image above: Jasmine Pearls from East India Company

It’s been a while, I know! but this is what happens when you live in the “Real World”, and have a nine to five 😉

I have been through a number of changes in the past few months and am now in a new job working for a lifestyle brand. So, apologies for not being on here as often as I would like…

With the start of Spring I thought that I would share, and hopefully inspire you with some of my favourite things this Spring.

I personally love Jasmine Tea. I find it very refreshing. At home I have a cupboard dedicated to  tea, and some of my other favourite hot beverages.

In the past I have tried other Jasmine teas, but this one is distinctively different with a very smooth taste.

You only need three pearls per cup, and you can even replenish the hot water for a second cuppa.

There you go – It’s good value for money.

Kiki ceramic bird, and Sera round vase, both from Habitat

I love the vibrancy and colour of these two pieces from Habitat. They will work great as feature pieces in a room, adding a splash of colour. Which is exactly what I will be using these for.

Magda Mugs from Habitat

These Magda mugs are fantastic. I love the quirky design and patterns, and each design is hand-finished. And adds a splash of colour to your mug tree.

Perfect for sipping Jasmine tea 🙂

Decadence by Marc Jacobs

The fragrance in this perfume brings back  a lot of memories for me. Even though it was many years ago, it smells like one my mother used to use. Aside from this, the perfume is sumptuous with a really cool, edgy design.

Terrarium from Oliver Bonas and Smudge

This terrarium comes in different shapes sizes and colours, and is perfect for cultivating your own cluster of succulents, as demonstrate above. This one I created earlier this year. Succulents are from Homebase.

What can I say about Smudge. A perfect model and always Spring Fresh 😉

Salted, chocolate almonds and dried strawberries in white chocolate from The East India Company and Succulent from Sainsbury’s

These lovely, indulgent treats, are to die for. Sweet and savoury for the Almonds, and sweet, sweetness with the freeze dried strawberries enveloped in glorious white cocoa. Perfect for the gal with a sweet tooth!

Sacred Fire, scented candle from Rituals

As, you probably have guessed, I love, love, love Rituals and this scented candle creates a wonderful calming aroma. Don’t forget to check out my other post featuring Rituals.

Well, that’s a selection of my Spring Faves.

I hope you enjoyed this post
