The Pertinacious Packaging Pack Rat

That's code (not very good code at that), for Me!

So committed am I in my contrived necessity to collect things enclosed in packaging that appeals to my eyes, that I will grab anything so long as it is "pretty" or "striking" in some way.

Well aren't I the shallow one!

My most recent MUST HAVE GIMME IT NOW was a tin of mustard powder. The colour is so spot on. I would love some garment in this shade.


Then there was the wonderfully scented grapefruit soap stick (disguised as a glue stick) that I received as a CP from A Pop of Kawaii:




And I cannot miss out my P&J lippy:




Paul & Joe continue to pour out stunningly packaged items.





I do wish that they would extend their range into fabrics that I could buy to make fings with. Wouldn't that be charming! They could even do a little collaboration with those bright sparks.....ooooooooooooooooh!

I think I will continue to collect prettily packaged things. It's gone past being just an obsession. It's a lifestyle.

  1. I'm such a sucker for pretty, cute and shiny packaging!
    P&J's packaging is beautiful, and you can re-use the lippie ones? xxx

  2. I absolutley love Paul and Joe's packaging designs. They look so... dainty, eye-catching. There are some P&J desktop wallpapers avaliable too, might be worth having a nosey into it.

    Oh and yes, my waffle maker is absolutely SUBLIME! Ah, I use it at least once everyday. The downside is that I am constantly needing ingredients to make more batter...

  4. I don't own anything in P&J's fabulous packaging yet (I keep looking at the lippies but I can't commit without any swatches) but I know where you are coming from!! I love things with beautiful packaging - they are SO much more attractive to me.

  7. BIG PHOTOS!! You must have read my mind. I love massive pics in blog posts.

    I love the Paul and Joe lipsticks with the cats heads, they don't show up on my lips though so I can't justify buying the prettiness just for that.
