New things are shiny

Well, new things are also very exciting.

It makes me happy to possess new things because they present seemingly endless opportunities and ways of using them. Yeah, sure - new things get old too. But for now, they are a novelty; something fresh to play with. Here are a few new things in my life, lately.

I have been hankering for this scalloped edge dinner set since May. Took me all this time to source and purchase them. I can tell you they are absolutely worth the wait. I am biding for Spring to arrive - they will be perfect for a garden party.

Dainty little gold rings to adorn my fingers with.

Blue suede shoes. They were already on sale when I saw them, while paying for them, I was told they were a further 20% off. Don't you love it when that happens? It's also awesome because they look so good with my floral skirt.

My old pair of sunnies finally conked out on me after 2 years of regular use. I thought it would be hard to replace them as I loved them so much. But one look at this pair of Chanels, I was totally sold. It's the quilted leather sides that did it for me.
What new things are you loving lately?

Oooh nice finds. I've been amassing more books lately (I know, I have to stop - it's getting to the point of hoarding). But I'm about to add some cool new workout gear to the mix

Ooh, nice new things. I adore the gold love ring, that is so gorgeous. My new sunnies were £14 in the local chemist - I am totally jealous of your chanel beauties! I love new stuff but our house is small...I recently bought a simple necklace from etsy which I adore, it makes me happy every time I wear it. x

This will sound so sad, but I'm loving my new diaper bag. Since it took forever to find a decent one that I wanted to carry, I'm excited about the one I have and love toting it around.

Becca @ The Beauty Sample said...

Oh wow--those sunnies are FAB! I've never seen ones with leather sides before! But maybe it's because I'm a sunglass noob (I always end up spending money on makeup instead of clothing and accessories :P)
