It's time for another monthly favourites, featuring my fashion and lifestyle loves from the last month of 2016. There are clothes, fashion accessories, books, home decor and work accessories.
Firstly, I want to share with you a couple of bits of loungewear that I've been loving. I literally live in my Food Geek Apparel Made of Sprinkles & Sarcasm Sweater* (£35 from Food Geek Apparel) - it is so cosy, thick and it has a lovely light fleecy interior too. I wear this both around the house and out on casual supermarket trips. I might have to collect all of the cute slogans they do. Brunch Squad is definitely next!
I've also found my Ladies Shirt With Lace Sleeves (£14.99 from Lesara) so handy over the festive period as it's comfy and relaxed enough for when I don't want to get dressed up, but because of the lace sleeves, it looks like I've put effort in when guests come round.
Sticking with fashion, there are also some accessories that I've been using all month. I don't really wear a watch often and until this new one, I've just had one gold-toned metal Kate Spade one. When Swatch invited me to choose one of their timepieces, I had to go for one that was more comfortable and better for day-to-day wear. I love this pale pink one with gold detailing on the face* (£38 from Swatch) as it goes with everything as feels really weightless on.
I've also been loving my Zoella Lifestyle On My Travels Back Pack (£25, was £50, from Boots). The backcpack looks really chic and it's a great alternative to a handbag when you can't be bothered carrying one of when you want a more relaxed look. The backpack came with a cute marble-print travel cup inside it, a great 'Inspire' keyring that is now on my keys and a set of cute slogan pencils.
I haven't seen the Fantastic Beasts & Where To Find Them movie yet, but you don't need to in order to be able to enjoy the Fashion Sketchbook (£9.98 from Amazon). It's actually great for anyone who likes designing beauty or fashion looks as lots of the pages involve you creating your own designs rather than just colouring between the lines like most adult colouring books.
Another book i've really enjoyed is the latest Zoe Sugg aka Zoella novel, Girl Online Going Solo (£7.99 as part of monthly membership from Audible). I listened to this as an audiobook via Audible - Hannah Tointon is a great narrator. I've really enjoyed the whole Girl Online series, even although I'm much older than the intended reader, but this one is defintiely the most grown-up of the books released so far. If you haven't read any of the Girl Online books, you do need to start at the beginning of the series to be able to follow it properly. It follows late-teen blogger Penny and her best friend Elliott as they navigate life and relationships (especially one key one in the public eye).
Finally, I have a couple of more random bits. I got a new marble-print personalised 15-inch laptop case (£28.07 from Case Company) to go with the new marble vinyl sticker that I currently have over the lid. It's really good quality and I got my initials put on the bottom in baby pink.
I'm also obsessed with this numbered wooden set of drawers that I got from Sainsburys a couple of months ago. I'm using it for jewellery storage. I'm not sure if you can still get it, but there might be the odd random one left in your local store.
