if you're an australian woman and you like pretty clothes with bows and things i'm going to assume you already know and love alannah hill and the magical things she creates. i don't know if the brand is available internationally but if you are ever in australia, you should definitely visit an alannah hill shop. even if your budget doesn't allow for you to buy anything the set up of the stores is beautiful and the girls are always really friendly. i was lucky enough score a beautiful winter coat with bow sleeves and ballerina lining, a deep red knee length circle skirt and a beautiful new wallet as they were having a buy-two-get-one-free sale, AND the coat was on sale in the first place. lucky me!
above, my beloved lula, my adorable pink & mint asos heart loafers and some napoleon beauty products. they were having a gift special so my mum and i bought a few things (liquid eyeliner and a lip lacquer for me) and split the products that came for free and i ended up with the nail polish, mascara and lip palette. i bought the tote bag, rose headscarf and adorable little handmade books from the rock & roll markets a couple of weekends ago.
both my mum and i have recently taken a liking to grown beauty products. i tried out their lip balm a couple of months ago and i just got their camellia & geranium blossom face moisturiser and the vanilla & orange peel hand cream earlier this week. they not only have beautiful, high quality products that smell amazing, as well as lovely packaging and typography (always important), but they're a certified organic brand that is dedicated to providing genuinely organic products that actually work. again, i don't know how far their reach is internationally because i know they're an australian brand but they are worth checking out. below is my new faaaavourite handbag from asos that i lusted over for several weeks before just buying! and a handful of kittens i bought at some local markets.
