Recent Buys

Here's some of the things I've bought recently:

A beautiful and good quality plain notebook by Emerald & Lime. You can never have too many notebooks, well that's my opinion!

I can never resist a new launch at 4160Tuesdays and I had to have fruity and fizzy Lemon Sherbet which is from the #mrsglossmademedoit range. It has notes of lemon, orange, grapefruit, sherbet dibdabs, musk and vanilla and is perfect for spring and summer...and I got a sample vial with order - Goodbye Piccadilly "a scent for suffragettes, first made for London Transport Museum with materials used in 1914: violet, iris, lavender, leather, vanilla and patchouli".

I discovered Wax+Wick on Sasha's Instagram and found I couldn't resist a little splurge. The bottles are repurposed wine bottles picked up (empty) from the wine bars of Primrose Hill. They are ruddgedly cut making them look more interesting I think. 

The artisan candles handmade with 100% soy wax and interesting blends of essential oils. Grapefruit+Sage is just amazing and I can't wait to buy MORE. They are very well wrapped for postage and come in a drawstring cotton bag making them great for gifting if you can bear to part with them that is!

I'd tried products from Ravenscourt Apothecary before (link). Again, an instagram spot was the delicious sounding Blood Orange Body Butter, which really is mouthwatering. I also picked up a lip balm set. Love the simple packaging and that the products are made with care, love and natural ingredients.

My final recent buy was a reduced Mary Greenwell Plum candle at The Fragrance Shop. Totally bargainous at a tenner (RRP £45).  The packaging is super luxe and I've not decided yet whether to keep or gift!  The Perfume shop also give away 2 fragrance samples with order and I also picked 3 perfume sample vials for £3.

What have you been buying lately?


  1. Wow that's a bargain and a half with the MG candle! I've had a round of birthdays so all my recent buys have been for other people! My boyfried used to live opposite the 4160 studio and I can't believe I never checked it out.

  2. Isn't it just! The perfumes Plum and Lemon are on offer too. Oh wow, I'd love to go visit x

  3. My name is Rebecca and I'm a stationery-holic. Ever since I used to pinch paper supplies from school in fact. I have more notebooks than I can shake a stick at and I still buy more ;-) Being a pauper, my fave buys are from Wilkos (such an amazing range) and Tesco. I had a look at Emerald and Lime's website, out of my price range, but the A4 prints are gorgeous for a present. I think I might need to blog about stationery now...

    1. You'd love That Lame Company and Honeytree Stationery Box. Both amazing! I've blogged about both. x
