Weekend Buys – Little Indulgences

Well I misled you saying Spring would be back this week! However, that’s no reason not to indulge yourself in fact I think it is every reason to 🙂

This week I’ve included a few special treats I have tried out, as well as one that will make you feel good because you are doing good!

What better incentive to buy new shoes and ease any guilt than supporting a charity? These gorgeous little shoes have been created in support of Women for Women International, an organisation helping women survivors of war to rebuild their lives. Inspired by traditional needlework techniques that commonly decorate Kosovar folk dress, the Zoja ballerina flats are decorated with hand-embroidered hearts. The heart is a universally peaceful symbol, so it was the natural design choice.

A knit has been my saviour this week and this one is a sale bargain. Made from gorgeously soft silk and cotton it comes in these two bright Spring colours and is now reduced to £37! Snap it up quickly though – you can see what it looks like on me here.

Next a simply beautiful perfume I found on the way to Dallas in the duty free at Heathrow. Described as follows; “A light, fresh, yet opulent peony accord is intensified with may rose absolute and rose essence, while sunny warmth comes courtesy of orcanox, musk and a hint of patchouli. Bright notes of tangerine, pink pepper and raspberry lend an addictive spicy and fruity facet. Pivoine Suzhou Eau de Toilette delicately marries a fresh elegance and gentle sensuality.” Certainly not a cheap buy but I have had compliments every time I have worn it.

A new release from Charlotte Tilbury next, her Look in a Palette, this latest version is to give you a Summer glow (especially as there isn’t much chance of getting one in the UK at the moment) I took one of these palettes on my recent trip and carried it in my hand luggage for a touch up before landing. It includes everything you need bar lipstick and mascara.

This Energising Candle was the perfect solution to last week’s jet lag or for any day when you are feeling a little sluggish. It has a blend of peppermint, eucalyptus, lime and rosemary that does exactly what it says on the box.

Finally, from the lovely people at L’Occitane, the Indulgent Almond Collection which has nourishing, soothing and firming skin properties. Just what you need to get Summer ready.
