Currently crushing

Now Spring has finally arrived I thought I'd let you know what I've been crushin' on; mostly a blend of birthday presents from turning 25 & several new additions to my closet that have definitely got summer vibes dazzling through them, even if the weather won't quite let us believe so.... 

Starbucks, agreeably the best coffee shop in town due to their Refresher range alone have now crowned in the glory further by making OMBRE mugs. Hell yeah Starbucks! I opted for the turquoise due to all the mermaid vibes I've been lovin' of late. They also come in yellow or pink if you're feeling rainbow rad.

This is gorgeous. Really floral, fruity and light enough to switch between impactful yet subtle. Love! 

Accessorize Cara Camera Bag

Blogger bag cliché written all over it #clickclickflash. It has such a pretty iridescent shimmer when it hits the light and I know it's going to be perfect for making that summery ootd a bit more snazzy.

Momentarily mesmerised by these reflective beauts when I first saw them in store with Josie, I had to go get them the second time I was passing by. Just from a little light you can see how much colour they mirror, and I can't wait until the sun really does its thing so I can show them off properly. I opted for something slightly different with the silver frames too. 

I've just started burning this down today and am already loving it. Like its description, Birthday Cake has a sweet, silky vanilla scent that really fills the room with an immediate sugar rush just as soon as the match strikes! A room filled with birthday cake? Result. Definitely just as good as a Yankee jar. 

What are you currently crushing on?

Any new s/s purchases


  1. Er, I need that mug!! Sooo cute. I've bought about 5 crop tops, 2 pairs of wide leg trousers and a maxi dress haha! I love Spring.

  2. Such a lovely post Sophie, I looove that ombre mug, I have to say that I haven't seen it around, but then again, I only visit Starbucks about twice a year haha :D :D What I love even more though are those gorgeous books on your shelf! <3 Your camera bag is also incredibly cute, definitely a nice, unique find, I haven't seen anything similar before.

    1. Aww thanks ever so much babe! Oh wow, you're so good only visiting Starbucks several times a year haha! Couldn't believe my eyes when I saw them o.O Ombre mugs?! I mean whaaaat :D

      I SO wish the books/shelf could be mine. They look so stylish don't they?! It was during a weekend away with my parents that we stayed at this hotel, and my room there had the gorgeous decor. As soon as I saw it I knew I had to take looooads of photos and make the most of it hehe ;) The light was fantastic!

      Bless you for all your support Paula, love you! <33

  3. Adore all of these picks! Recently picked up some new sunnies but they're definitely not in the same snazziness bracket. Definitely need to investigate those candles though, even if I do have to stop myself eating it:')

  15. That Ombre mug is just perfect for you! Wow! I can't believe Starbucks could get even better, but it looks like it has! I'm such a coffee addict. Haha :D I go to Starbucks way too much! Although I think the coffee shops in London are way better! Like Costa and Cafe Nero! YUM! I love Daisy! My friend in High School used to wear it all the time and I was totally jealous haha :) Such a nice refreshing summer scent! So fab.
    And that camera bag!!! Omg. I so so so so want it! I always have my camera with me so it would just be too fun to have my camera and camera purse. Talk about obsessed. Hehe :D

    Love this post Sophie! I definitely think this should be a series on your blog now!

    Love you!

  16. Lovely post, Daisy is one of my favourite scents!

  19. Firstly - Happy birthday!! What a beautiful little collection of pieces here - that bag is so incredibly you and the mug too! Love the ombre... whenever I see ombre I actually think of you now! hehe

    I just wanted to say thank you so so much for the absolutely lovely comment you left on my blog the other day Soph. I can't tell you how much I was blown away by all the sweet things you said and I just had to mention it on here in case you didn't see my reply. You really inspired me to continue on blogging (not that I was planning on stopping, but your comment reinvigorated me) and I want you to know too that your blog never fails to bring a smile to my face with your crazy coloured hair (amazing!) and quirky outfits that you put together. Not to mention your beautiful words - you definitely have a way with words that I never could!
    I don't know what's been going on but I know you've been having a bit of a tough time so I really hope things are getting better for you and you keep up that amazing positivity that always seems to shine through in your blog posts.
    I hope that doesn't sound to cliche but I really mean it :)

  23. Shooooooot, did I miss your birthday?! I'm so sorry!! I hope you had a great one!!!!! I love the mug, I'm yet to get my hands on a Starbucks mug (I always told myself I would when I was in the UK and somehow I forgot...) and that ombré mug is definitely for you hahahaha .

    Needless to say I want and need and crave that bag, badly.
