You know you're getting old when you get excited about homeware shopping, the other day I got excited about plates. Yes plates. But they did have hearts on, so y'know excitement justified. Homebase very kindly sent me some vouchers to spend on some new things for the house. I do love nice knicks and knacks for around the home, and I was having a craving for a few new bits. So this is what I bought, as well as the video with all the items I bought :)
Coconut candle- My favourite smell like in the whole wide world is coconut, and I've been yet to find a really nice coconut candle, and this candle was just £4 which I could barely say no to. It's as big as the large Yankee Candles and smells like suncream but for a quarter for the price, what a barg.
Morphy Richards Kettle and Toaster: We desperately needed a new kettle and toaster as ours was looking a bit worse for wear. A lovely lime green colour and the kettle was full of limescale, we thought it was about time we treated ourselves. The toaster has four slices for toast! Yes four slices, this is big news in our household!
Wooden spoons: Yes wooden spoons, how exciting, but when you have a sneaky labradoodle who steals them when you're not looking we were in dire need of some new ones.
We also got some other new bits, but they are in my haul video below :) Let me know if you'd like to see more home type posts for me, as I'm sure I can get something arranged!
*This was post was in collaboration with Homebase. However all opinions are my own, and I chose the items for the house which were all things that I needed!*

First of all we have my new baby, my Micheal Kors watch. I have been wanting a proper watch for sometime now, and I decided a few months ago, I wanted a gold watch, and I was supposed to buy one when I went to America earlier in the year. Anyways, I ended up not having enough money, lol whoops, so the watch had to wait. With this in mind, I decided that if i was lucky enough to receive any birthday money, I would spend it on a watch. I always end up just putting birthday money into my savings, and never actually spending it, so I thought 'you know what, I'm going to treat myself!' I bought my watch from Ernest Jones, and it was in the sale which was even better :) although it took me a while to get used to this big gold thing on my wrist, I feel lost without it now. I also feel that the watch adds a bit more to a boring outfit, although I know it's not to everyone's taste, I love it.
I have been going through a phase of loving dainty necklaces, I think paired with a v-neck top they look really nice. Astrid & Miyu are one of my favourite jewellery brands, as they always sell really lovely jewellery that is a little different to other jewellery on the high street. I love this charm necklace* as it's really dainty but the diamante charm really stands out still. Definitely my favourite necklace at the moment.
Finally I've been getting a bit more adventurous with my sunglasses, prior to these, I was an aviators girl through and through, and although they will always be my favourite style, I have been enjoying using these RayBan Clubmasters. I wasn't sure at first if they'd suit me, but I actually really like them, and although Henry said they gave me a round face (rude) but I really like them. I feel they're a bit more classier than aviators, and I literally can't stop wearing them!
So that's my current favourite jewellery pieces, I'm really getting into more delicate pieces and I'm sure my collection will be added too very soon :)

Typical Corrie, I have left my favourites a little later than normal this month, but hey, better late than never right? This month I have been shopping my stash and enjoying some oldies from my collection, as well as a new foundation and luxury concealer that don't go cakey. Hallelujah! I've also discovered some new spot fighting products from Freederm, and yes I have been using face wipes. But in a new way than before! I've also been trying to tackle the cellulite and listening to my new favourite not a boyband band 5SOS on repeat. So I hope you like the video and don't forget to subscribe to my channel if you haven't already, as I'm going to be uploading twice a week so that's two new videos a week :) hope you all had a great July! :)
