The Week #132

Peony Lovin'-Peonies are some of those flowers I've always dreamed of owning so when I spotted them in a florist at one of our local shopping centres I may have shrieked excitedly. This bunch came home with me and they're still going strong. Pro tip: They love to have ice in their water and that seems to make them last longer. They also smell heavenly too and just look how beautiful they are. Love.

The Christmas Gift Guide for Beauty Lovers-Gift guides are in full swing at the moment and dare I say it, I kinda wish I hadn't been so organised with Christmas shopping this year because each day it seems I see something and think "that would've been such a good gift for *insert friend/family/cat here*. Anyway, if you have a beauty lover to shop for then you need to check out Tamira's gift guide in collaboration with Space NK. There's some real gems in there for a range of price points+interests so definitely go give it a watch.

Flowerbomb-We've probably all spotted this Viktor & Rolf fragrance on perfume counters at some point. This grenade shaped bottle is just so striking.Well I was lucky enough to actually win this from the lovely folk at Mighty Ape who were involved with a recent #nzbloggers chat. It's amazing, and I know it's going to become a staple in my perfume collection. 

A Lip Set You'll Love-This year has really been the year of the lip crayon and Nars' Velvet Matte pencils still remain my favourites. Pigmented, long-lasting and not too dehydrating on the lips. They're stunners. If you're feeling spendy then you may like this Digital World Lip Coffret. It contains three satin pencils and two mattes. They're all more on the bold side of things but they're gorgeous. You could even buy a set like this and split the set up to give these to a friend. 

Live Like A Parisian Woman-I was lucky enough to go to Paris four years ago and I was absolutely enchanted by the city. The fashion, the way Parisian women carry themselves, seeing people reading in Paris' busiest parks. There's just something about it. Anyway, this book was recently released and I loved it. Yes it's a guide of sorts but the book doesn't take itself too seriously. I was laughing out loud at some parts. Also, the Parisian's emergency handbag guide is spot on. 

*Have the best weekend peeps! I feel like this week has been so busy with blog things+general life craziness. I'm going away for a bit at Christmas time so I'm trying to get everything done before I leave so that I can have a bit of time off. This weekend I'll be getting excited for Christmas. An Elf screening may have to happen and I'll be thinking about Blogcademy which is next weekend! I am so excited for that. Have an amazing weekend everyone x.
