The Week #142

Happy Mail: I'm so thankful that Hannah got me on the A Beautiful Mess bandwagon because it means I can learn about awesomeness like their Happy Mail. It's a monthly subscription service where you receive an assortment of things like cards, stickers, art prints and more to keep or share around. I've been watching their monthly unboxings and finally caved and bought the February collection earlier in the week. If you're a stationery lover, this'll be your cup of tea. Check it out here

Floral Fantasy: Whenever a new Karen Walker collection drops into my inbox I can't help clicking through to have a browse. Her latest collection, Garden People is stunning. Think water garden-esque florals (above) in earthy tones and also some abstract prints. I love this dress and pattern. There's also some stunning accessories too. The gold filigree wallet and flower ring are calling my name at the moment.

New in Beauty: It's been a good week in beauty and some exciting launches are headed our way soon. First up we have the ArtDeco High Performance Eyeshadow Stylos*. They're available from April in a diverse range of shades, from out there silvers to wearable bronzes. So far I'm liking them but I will keep you posted. Some would say that Benefit are the bosses of the mascara world. They're Real sells like hotcakes. Well now they're launching a new mascara, Roller Lash*. I'm not entirely sure of its release date, but it's available towards the end of the month in the US so international dates will follow that I imagine. I'm yet to try this but the reviews I've seen so far have been positive. 

DIY Lap Desk: Some of you will have misread that title. Get your minds out of the gutter ;). Another gem from the A Beautiful Mess ladies this week is this DIY laptop desk. It requires no sewing, just a handy staple gun and some crafty supplies which are easy enough to get a hold of. I'm seriously considering making this because it looks so simple. If you're feeling crafty you can check it out here.

Let's talk Eddie Redmayne: That dreamboat stole our hearts in My Week With Marilyn and Les Miserables. He's also an amazing actor. I saw him in The Theory of Everything yesterday, a biopic charting Stephen and Jane Hawking's relationships and the many trials they went through. Amazing film, so inspiring and moving. Take tissues if you get a bit weepy at the cinema like I tend to. Eddie is totally amazing as Hawking. Seriously, his performance literally blew me away he totally owned that role. He has to win the Oscar.

*Have the best weekend everybody! I'm off to the beach tonight with some friends for a fish & chips sesh. Tomorrow, good ol' V Day, I will no doubt be indulging in some of the following. I'm also hoping to film some videos this weekend because I'm finally out of my filming funk (I hope!). See y'all on Monday with a rather exciting beauty post xo.
