I thought I would put together a list of a few things i've bought lately or wished for incase it inspires any of you guys! I also wanted to share a new-to-me website called 'Lyst' which helps make shopping a bit easier (more on that further down this post).
Funny enough I mentioned these cactus vases just the other day and they are now on sale at 40% off (as is everything on the La Redoute site right now!). Trust me to buy something full priced before it goes on sale, story of my life! I actually got mine in the medium size but I'm wondering whether to treat myself to a little one too whilst the sale lasts. We'd be wanting a mirror like the ones before to go in our hallway for a while so I'm making use of the discount on the smaller one (here).
I also ended up buying a couple of bits for me and the baby at the same time because it would be rude not to on a sale right? This succulent top for me and these pineapple bits for the baby, soooo cute!
I'm a massive fan of Dick Bruna and was so excited to see the collection at Uniqlo. They've taken the bear design from his first ever book for their ladies collection (the bear had red eyes as it stays up to read in the dark) and the detective for their menswear. I picked up these two for Tom and I (actually Tom did as a surprise, he also got me this one from the collection too. It's not arrived yet so I'm not sure how crazy the pattern will be so will update you that.)

I'd honestly all but given up on finding a pair of jeans that actually fit and suit me. I'm a pear shape with a long tummy and I find all them ride too low/emphasise my thighs. Hardly anywhere seems to do high waisted or ones that fit a curvier shape (IMO) anyway, I took a gamble on these high waisted ones I spotted by Monki at ASOS here. I basically only gave them a shot as I love the designs from Monki so much I thought it might be worth a go..and I'm completely in LOVE with them! So anyone one with a pair shape or hourglass shape I recommend them 100%.
I didn't actually buy this (but I want too!) it's an exclusive from Skinny Dip for ASOS. I just need to justify a need for a pink flamingo bag..
I did recently get sent this People Tree clutch though which is so perfect for someone who loves pink as much as I do. Obviously it's guilt free shopping too as People Tree are a super ethical brand - you can get 15% off their collection with TLQ15 if you fancy it!

Lastly, I recently became away of Lyst, a website that allows you to shop in a slightly different way. Essentially you can add brands and things you love to your 'lyst' once you create an account. It will then do helpful things like email you as soon as those items go on sale (something I usually always end up missing out of by getting there late!). You can narrow down your search by choosing price ranges that your most comfortable with. By listing more things on your 'lyst' it will taylor your style and give you more options on things you might like, making shopping all that much easier (uh oh!). Here are some pieces I've recently found on their site.
You can follow my 'Lyst's' over there if you want by searching my username 'tigerlillyquinn'. Let me know if you're on there too and I can find you over there!
