Pretty Things That Caught My Eye - "Fancy a Cuppa?"

Allow me to introduce a new feature to my blog.

I am quietly but perpetually obsessive over pretty things that catch my eye. I am crazy about details such as texture, colour, materials etc. Yup, you could call me a devil for detail!!

So my hope is to inspire or at least amuse with my little themed posts chock-a-block with designy things that made me go oooooooooooooooooh! The first of which is:


Designed by Hrafnkell Birgisson.

Glass & ceramic

Made from second hand tea cups so each one is different. I would defo sip my Stoli from these.

I LOVE LOVE LOVE this mug, The simplicity of the idea and how well it has been executed delights my tea loving soul. I love things that make me say.....OF COURSE!! NOW WHY DIDNT I THINK OF THAT!!! And this does! I am actually placing an order for this very mug...that's how much I love it.

I do hope that I haven't bored you!

Before anyone asks, I have not been asked to promote any of the above designers on my blog! (Get real; I have a tiny readership). I just felt the need to share some pictures of things that I feel are well made and pay tribute to fertile imaginations. Such things will always grab my attention for they allow people like me to express their personality through everyday objects.

Miscellany of Me

Feel free to chuck something sharp at me when I start to get tediously on your wick with my me me me shit.

I Love stickers - I collect them, stare at them, use them, love 'em and can't get enough of 'em. I found these on Gmarket and they are super duper!

Wine makes me sleepy! So after a strenuous day's work its a nice way to chill out.
P.S meet Anna!!
When I was a wee nipper I always imagined that our regular corkscrew looked sorta like a lady. So when I stumbled across Anna in the Alessi shop...I knew instantly that she had to be mine.

Check Anna out HERE!!!

Hiro makes me dinner! Last night we had panfried duck marinated in soy, heaps of ginger and spring onion. And because a girl needs her greens......fresh asparagus, green beans and rocket made the menu along with garlic penne.

Grabbed me some Urban Decay mini pencils so I can decorate my face.

I loved my Visee Glam Hunt Palette so when I heard about the new LE versions in mauve and brown I need to get BOTH. This knocks the socks of the original palette formula!!!
Applies buttery smooth and no chunky glitter fall out!

I also admitted a new BBC to my ranks of base makeup. BLOODY HELL!! This is water light!! For those that are seeking super light coverage this is for you.
Those that follow my Twits will know that my Halloween plans have been cancelled :( However I will still draw a winner from the entries on Monday.
