We want Miss Charming’s Current Obsessions posts and my Favorites posts to be a regular thing, so here’s one from me again. I normally do a Favorites that covers a month, but this time I wanted to do one where I show you my all-time favorite things. There are just some things that never stop being favorites, but ofcourse I can’t post about them every month. This post will be dedicated to those things I loved for a long time.
My Michael Kors watch >
Perfume: Eternity from Calvin Klein
Lavender scented candles
< My starbucks mug
Movies: Shopaholic, Meangirls, The Great Gatsby & Breakfast At Tiffany’s
Going out for lunch or coffee or something like that
There must be a ton of other things, but this is all I can think of right now.
Hope you all have a good week!
I got some january favorites for you to kick start your year with some good books, movies and perfumes.
Let It Snow
This book is perfect for this season and it’s almost impossible for the writers to disappoint you. It’s the perfect book to snuggle up in bed with your hot chocolate/tea/coffee while it’s snowing (or when lack of snow, raining) outside. And I am in love with the cover.
Daisy Dream by Marc Jacobs
I got this perfume for my birthday in a giftbox, which also contained a body lotion and a shower gel. I like the way the bottle looks and the giftbox is a really cute box you can use to store stuff in.
Victoria’s Secret body mist The one I got is Pure Seduction, but Strawberries & Champagne is also on my wishlist. Pure Seduction is really sweet, but since it’s a body mist it’s not too strong.
Eternity by Calvin Klein
This is kind of an all time favorite perfume, but I recently bought a new one. It’s a really light, fresh scent, so it’s perfect for every occasion.
Grace Of Monaco
A movie about Grace Kelly, played by Nicole Kidman. I haven’t actually finished watching this, so I can’t really judge this movie yet, but so far I like it. It will probably end up with my other classics (Coco Avant Chanel, The Great Gatsby, Breakfast At Tiffany’s).
I recently bought this jewellerybox at Xenos and it fits everything perfectly.
And ofcourse my yoga pants, makes going to the gym a lot less of a chore. 😉
Also this article I found last week on www.whowhatwear.co.uk about closet cleaning. (They have quite a lot of useful stuff about closet cleaning.) This article is about 5 closet cleaning tips you never heard before and (to my suprise) I had actually never heard them before and they are really useful!
Today I have a couple of new favorites for you.
Red velvet cake & red cups season at Starbucks
I wanted to try this for a long time and when red cups season hit Starbucks they also sold red velvet cake! It’s chocolate cake with a red colour, so ofcourse it was delicious. I’m so in love with the whole vibe they got at starbucks these days with the christmas songs playing and the new stuff they sell (for example the red velvet cake) and the red cups. Although I’m not loving the red cups Starbucks created this year. The ones from last year were way cuter.
I’ve always loved these, but never knew where to get them. One day I was picknicking in Vondelpark with some friends and one of them had these with her. Turns out they just sell them at our supermarket. I never actually went looking for them, but recently ran into them at Hema. So now I have them laying in my room waiting for a perfect opportunity to use them (like new years eve or my bday or something).
Coco vanilla body butter
It smells so good. I bought this at a local store and it was super cheap, so the quality won’t be that good, but I just bought it for the scent.
Perfume: Daisy Dream & Dolce
My recent perfume obsessions are Daisy Dream from Marc Jacobs and (still) Dolce from Dolce and Gabbana. I know I’m getting the giftbox from Daisy Dream for my birthday, so I’m super excited about that. The giftbox from Dolce was cuter, but it had the normal Dolce perfume in it and I want the floral drops (I finally decided).
I was out shopping with a friend and we wanted to get something to drink, so we went to the supermarket. I was going in the direction of starbucks ice coffee, but that friend picked a fruit smoothie/juice. I always like to try new stuff, so I picked one too and I like it. It’s delicious and much more healthy than starbucks. We all need vitamines.
I saw this movie a few weeks ago and it’s so cute, funny and charming. It’s about a 70 year old man, Ben, feeling like retirement has started too soon for him and like he still has something to offer the world. So he starts a job as senior intern at a fashion webshop. The contrast between him and the other employees is hilarious. The old man is so adorable and he leaves a little sparkle everywhere he goes. This movie is definitely a must watch!
Here are a few of my favorites of this month.
Inside Out is a movie that gives you a peek into the brain of a little girl growing up. It’s really cute and it looks really real. A lot of things you’ll find identifiable. A great movie to watch with friends, your boyfriend or parents. I went to see it two weeks ago with my mom and sis and we had a great time.
They are really on trend right now and they are very practical. When I was on vacation in spain I took my sun hat with me and it turned out to be a very good idea. I actually used it quite often to protect my face from the sun.
The Pretty Little Liars books
I’ve been reading them for the past weeks and LOVE them. They’re so addicting. Even if you’re not a bookworm I’m sure you’ll enjoy reading them. If you loved the tv-show, you’ll love the books as well. I would however not recommend reading them while being in the middle of watching the show, because a lot of things are not the same and that can be quite confusing.
