september favorites

This is the first ever monthly favorites post on this blog. Will this become a thing? I don't know. I never know. But it's almost the end of the month and I've already taken pictures of things... so let's just roll with it.
September 2013 Favorites
no 1. THE GLASS FLORAL BOX
Floral Glass Jewelry Box
This box was originally intended to keep Riesen's chocolates in because I saw a girl's room tour on Youtube and she had done that. Clearly I was influenced* because I went out and bought a box the same week. Sadly I don't have the chocolates yet so I put jewelry in it. I guess you could say it's filled with the worst kind of chocolate there is. No chocolate.

* Surprisingly not by alcohol

no 2. THE INITIAL NECKLACE
Silver C Initial Necklace
This was another late night eBay purchase. I tell ya, the middle of the night makes you need the things you see online. It wasn't expensive, but I've been wearing it a lot to make up for the guilt of ordering it. Doing that cancels out the shame right? Right? Oh no.

no 3. THE MCQUEEN BIOGRAPHY
Alexander McQueen Biography
My friend gave this book to me for my birthday at the beginning of the month and boy was he spot on in choosing it. Alexander McQueen has always been my favorite designer and this book is filled with so many behind-the-scenes facts. It has a lot of beautiful pictures and some pretty funny anecdotes about him too. Totally recommend!

no 4. ESSIE MIDNIGHT CAMI
Navy Nail Polish Essie Midnight Cami
Then there's this nail polish that looks black but is actually very dark navy. So it's trying to fool everyone into thinking it's super badass, but really it wears bunny footie pajamas to bed. Awwe.

Anyone else excited for October? I've definitely got Halloween on the brain!

COSTUMES.

  4. that box is so pretty hunny, if i had the chocolates they wouldn't last very long so putting jewelry in it is a good idea haha

  6. Haha so much admiration for your honesty 'I've already taken pictures of things...so let's just roll with it' - literally my attitude about most of the 'regular' segments I start up on my blog.
    The glass jewellery box is gorgeous, it's sad there's no chocolate in it, though. And I'm dying to get my hands on the McQueen biography, it's received so many positive reviews!
    Oh, and the initial necklace may come with slight guilt, but it's gorgeous, so worth it!
    On a side note, I've fallen a little bit in love with your blog, and am now your newest follower xx
