Here are some random bits and bobs I've bought over the past few weeks. Two of my latest addictions: candles and the shop, Typo. I went a little candle crazy and bought three new ones, which are going to make my room smell so yum. I suppose they're more of a winter thing, but they're just so nice to burn at night time when you're all snuggled in bed with a movie. Plus, I got a couple of fruity ones, which totally smell like summer.
When I bought some stuff at Typo in Melbourne, I got a $10 voucher for spending over $30. When I visited Typo in Perth, I bought the cutest Eiffel Tower notepad and paperweight with it. If you've been following my blog for a while, you'll know I am a complete Francophile. Anything with the Eiffel Tower on it will instantly catch my eye. A couple of weeks later, I paid another visit to my local Typo and bought the most beautiful notepad and pen. I love the vintage French look to it. I am a sucker for cute stationery. I bought it because I really want to teach myself a bit of French and I thought this would make the most perfect notebook to jot down all my notes and information.
I'm not a fan of soap as I find it way too drying, but I couldn't resist buying this MOR soap simply for the cute packaging. I'll probably just give the soap away. I plan on using the tin to store my hair ties and bobby pins, as it's the perfect size.
The Virgin Suicides has long been one of my favourite films, so I decided to buy the novel from eBay as I haven't read it before. I've never been a reader, but I wouldn't mind starting. I'm currently reading Nineteen Eighty-Four by George Orwell, so I'll finish that book first. I have no doubt The Virgin Suicides novel is just as beautiful and dreamy as Sofia Coppola's film.
