This year started with some changes on here. Besides the design of my blog, I also wanted to switch up the posts I create. A returning series on here was always my Loves Lately. I thought it was time for a new name. I love to brainstorm about these kind of things and I came up with The Favorites Club! All the things I love will be in this ‘club’ and I want to share those with you. Recently I added a Netflix series, a book tote, a Chanel perfume and even more to it!
Tote Bag from H&M
I’ve mentioned before that last year was a crazy year when it comes to buying bags. I went a little bag crazy. So, I made a promise to myself that I wouldn’t buy anymore bags since I had all the bags I could want and more. That went well… until I saw this book tote at H&M. It’s a dupe of the Christian Dior book tote and I loved the stitching on that. The only thing I didn’t like, was the price. This one from H&M is great quality and the price is even better.
Gold Butterfly Bracelet from My Jewellery
My friends got me this bracelet for my birthday and I have been wearing it since then. It’s gold (shocker because I used to hate gold jewelry) and has this tiny butterfly on it. It’s perfect and I love it so much, I just had to mention it in here as well.
Designing in Canva
Something I love to do in my spare time is designing and creating things in Photoshop. Photoshop is great, don’t get me wrong. But Canva is so much fun to experiment with. You can already find these pre-made templates and create your own. For my blog I’ve made these Instagram templates whenever there’s a new post up. Have you already noticed these?
If you’re into home decor, you MUST watch Dream Home Makeover on Netflix. My mom recommended it to me and oh my… It’s so good! The style of Studio McGee (the company the series is based upon) is definitely up my alley. It’s a combination of modern, boho and beach vibes. Aka, perfection. If I would live in the USA, I would go to Target all the time, since Studio McGee has a homeware collection with them.
Bubble & Body Candles
You can’t go on Instagram without seeing a body or bubble candle. At first I didn’t realize they were candles, since they almost looked like little sculptures. I bought mine from @buenaluzcandles on Instagram and love to display them on my shelves. Btw, they are such a great gift idea!
Vitamin C Oil from Pixi
And yet another birthday present I have been loving. Since my skin is so extremely dry, Elba looked for a product that could really help my skin. And that product is this Vitamin C Oil from Pixi. After applying it, my skin feels super enriched and soft. It has become a part of my daily skin routine.
L’eau Perfume from Chanel
This might sound weird but I am not really the perfume kind of girl. I get easily irritated by a scent. That doesn’t apply to the Gisou Hair Perfume and also to my new favorite: L’eau from Chanel. It’s very subtle fresh and not heavy at all, which I love.
Real talk: I love to upgrade a series I like to make for my blog. Even though it was just the name and the layout of it, it does make it more exciting for me. When I thought about this blog post, I actually hadn’t realized how many favorites I actually had. Life has been so chaotic lately… but I will discuss that later in an update kind of post (since I enjoy writing these so much). Looking back, I think the Dream Home Makeover series is my #1 fave. I just can’t wait for another season and therefore have been stalking their YouTube channel hehe. What have you recently added to your Favorites Club?
Love reading about your favourites! Everything is so aesthetic! ❤️✨
