A Few Beautiful Pieces From My Vintage Collection

Throughout Blogtober I have been sharing snippets of my collections; from my Favourite Pieces In My Brooch Collection to What’s In My Record Collection?

I really do get a lot of enjoyment out of collecting stuff and things. Maybe I have a slight penchant for hoarding but in all honesty I love the hunt and thrill of finding a new piece. In recent years I really started to get in to collecting vintage and though this isn’t one of my more extensive collections, it’s one of the more interesting. For today’s Blogtober I thought I’d share with you a few bits and bobs that I really love.

Lush Party Exclusives Mini Haul

Back in the Summer Lush released some brand-new party exclusive products; these were available for a limited time online for a tester period before being made store exclusive and only available if you booked a party.

Seeing how cute the designs were I was keen to try the products ASAP and put in a little online order with the intention of blogging about them. However, me being me I let time pass me by and completely forgot. For today’s Blogtober I thought I’d finally share a little haul and review with you – if you would like to try these products for yourself you can buy them exclusively when you book a party with Lush!

Huge Lush Cosmetics Christmas/Boxing Day Haul 2018

If you know me you’ll know I spend all year eagerly anticipating the one sale that Lush holds each and every Boxing day. It has become a tradition of sorts now for my family and I to get up super early, catch the bus to Lakeside and queue for about an hour or so just so I can get my hands on all the amazing reduced Lush. Maybe it sounds a bit sad, but when Lush only hold one sale a year it makes sense for me to be there for it and save some cash in the process. My brother and I even talked tactics over the cold tea on Christmas day this year – that’s how big of an event it is for me! This year I had a list of wants and, although I didn’t quite get everything on that list I think I did rather well! Today I thought I’d share my Boxing day scores as well as some of the Lush I was gifted this year!

What I got for Christmas 2018

I can hardly believe that Christmas has been and gone and the New Year is just around the corner! As always my family completely spoilt me and I enjoyed spending time with them, relaxing and eating (lots of) good food! The season wasn’t without sadness though and I did struggle quite a bit – that’s for another day though, today I want to share something positive and fun with you – my annual what I got for Christmas haul post!

Fun and Festive Things I’m Loving Through the Month of December

I can’t believe 15 days of December have passed by without one Christmas-themed blog post on Pretty Little Finch!

Believe it or not I’ve been living my very best festive life and celebrating the season with work parties, Christmas meals and much more. Today I thought it would be fun to share with you some of the festive-themed things I’m loving this month. Normally I save these ‘favourites’ type of posts til the end of the month but seeing as everything is so seasonal I thought it might be best to share them now, ahead of the big day so there’s still plenty of time to grab yourself something from this list!

What I Got For My Birthday

A couple of weeks back (in November!) I turned 29.  To celebrate becoming officially old I spent a rather over-the-top week having dinner with my family, drinks with my friends and taking a mini break to Paris. If you can’t over-indulge on your birthday, when can you?

Since then I have been non-stop busy with work, Christmas lunches, Christmas parties and life in general, so I haven’t had a lot of time to dedicate to blogging. I didn’t want the year to pass without me documenting my birthday in some way though, so today I thought I’d share with you some of the gifts I received on the big day.

Lush Cosmetics Christmas 2018 Haul Part One

Whilst most of us are still firmly in the Autumn mindset, planning for the spooky-season ahead and all the fun Halloween parties and events we’ll be attending, Lush is, as always, thinking ahead to Christmas. The full Christmas 2018 range dropped just a week or so after the Halloween range which I must admit does feel a little early!

The range this year is absolutely huge with loads of new and innovative products just crying out to be added to Christmas wish-lists. Despite all the newness I was really sad to see my old favourite, Magic of Christmas bubble bar wand knocked off the line-up. At this point in time I’ve tried quite a few of the new products but as the range is so extensive there’s still so many more baths to be had!

Here’s what I’ve picked up so far…

A Mini Homeware Haul and Decorating For Autumn

In my house it’s perpetually Autumn. I take a lot of decor inspiration from the great outdoors and as a fan of British wildlife, have a lot squirrel, fox, pheasant and deer-printed cushions and knick-knacks scattered about. The colour-palette of my living room is very warm featuring shades of brown, rust orange, green and copper.

Each year I like to add a few new pieces to the living room to keep it feeling fresh and interesting. I also dig out last years candles and put away my Spring/Summer scents. Today I thought I’d share a really small (but perfectly formed) Autumn homeware haul and explain how I personally like to decorate for the season.
