Almost all my favourite things from march are new purchases and that fact might have pumped my excitement about them even more…
Rituals has been one of mz favourite beauty brands for quite some time now and Lisa had the great idea to gift me one of their perfumes “Roi D’orient” for christmas. And it really does make a beautiful present. The small bottle fits into every bag and I am in love with the sleek wood and glass design. I’m sadly not that great at explaining scents, but this perfume smells divine! It is musky, but somehow really fresh at the same time. I get headaches quite easily and try to stay away from heavy or to bloomish smells, but this ticks all the boxes.
My other favourite from Rituals has been the Ritual of Ayurveda soothing hand balm. Same with the headaches and the heavy scents, so I always use non-perfume handcreams, but this doesn’t trigger headaches at all. The handcreams smells lush, really hydrates, sinks in quickly and has a handbag-friendly size. Score!
My brother went to the Netherlands at the beginning of this month to visit our family and brought back these cute coasters by Hema. As a set of 6 there are 3 patterns and I love the minimalistic black and cork look. If you’re having a dinner-party you can have smaller dishes on top of them and have a big spread across the table.
A bit of a weird favourite this month has been this bra. I’m not that well stacked, so I sometimes struggle to find bras that are comfortable, give me a nice décolleté and look cute at the same time. And I had never thought that I could wear a bra without padding and feel so divine. Although the “Kelsey” bra by Besired is a bit see-through you can’t really see anything and I feel well protected and well supported.
As I finished my thesis in march I finally started reading for pleasure again. The last few years of studying have lead to me falling asleep right at the moment my head hits my pillow. But now this has changed I have really been into lifestyle books. The New Garconne – How to be a Modern Gentlewoman by Navaz Batliwalla is a lovely curated book of people, looks, clothing-items and stories that sum up the perfect gentlewoman. This book has really inspired me to dress up more and truly try to dress the way I really want and aspire to.
