A Few New Items That I Got

It’s been a little while since I shared some new purchases and items with you, so I thought I would put this together, as I have some gorgeous new pieces! I will jump straight into the items though so we don’t take up too much time with an intro, so lets get to it!

First up is this brand new Casely Purple Marble iPhone Case with a matching Marble Ring. I collaborated with the brand at the most perfect time! My original case that I was using from another brand had smashed, so choosing this gorgeous one couldn’t have come at a better time. I have an iPhone 11, but they do cases for all phones.

Casely is a Brooklyn-based premium phone case and accessory brand. It’s American-owned, has a generous charity program, and is committed to helping ensure a more sustainable future for the planet. So not only do they have some amazing designs out there, they are 100% carbon neutral and the cases are also made with 50% recycled materials! I always need a phone ring too as it’s so useful for filming videos! This case is really sturdy and secure, and I absolutely adore the purple marble design. Isn’t it gorgeous? It feels so good in your hand too, which is a must for me!

Next up is this new and very cute Jacquemus Chiquito Mini Suede Bag that I purchased from Matches a couple of weeks ago. I had always loved how adorable the mini bags were, and even though it’s super tiny, not even fitting my phone, I love it! It’s more like a belt accessory and it holds your essentials like your cards, coins, lipstick etc., but not a large phone. It’s a gorgeous colour and I will actually be doing a full blog post review on this bag very soon! I used a £100 voucher from Matches Fashion to order this one and I can’t wait to show it to you worn!

I have been doing a lot of decorating, rearranging and DIY in my room and the spare room, as well as all over the house the last few weeks. It’s been non stop. But I love my room as I’ve completely changed it around and gotten rid of so much. I’ve donated over 30 bags of clothes to charity, I’ve given approximately 10 tubs of accessories, toys, electronics etc as well. Which leads me to this gorgeous new Dunelm Buddha Canvas on my wall as a sneak peek at my room! I wasn’t going to buy any artwork exactly, but when I saw this one, it spoke to me immediately as I follow a more Buddhist way of life, and I used to go to Buddhist group a few years ago. This painting gives me serenity and a sense of calm when I look at it in my room. Once I’m done with all the decorating, I can’t wait to show you! I will give you a clue – minimalism.

I fell in love with these Allsaints Ria Leather Crocodile Boots on the website last month and I decided that I needed them. I love crocodile print as it’s a much more interesting take on leather, but the best thing about these boots is how comfortable they are. They’re padded inside so they feel really comfy under the foot. The block heel is easy to walk on too, so not only are they gorgeous and a statement boot that I can’t wait to wear all autumn – they’re practical too!

This piece might be the star of the show! This is the Allsaints Studded Balfern Leather Jacket. I tried it on in the store, not thinking much of it as I assumed it was too bold and edgy for me – but then I ended up ordering about 7 different versions of it online, to try and find one that fitted me as slim as the one in the store, as when I went back for it, that specific one had sold out.

I decided that I loved it after sharing it with you on my stories and asking opinions from everyone. Those of you that know Allsaints well or you have read my blog post on what to know before you buy an Allsaints leather jacket, will know that they all run differently and that was the case for sure with all of the jackets I tried! I ended up getting one that I think is near perfect and I am obsessed with it. You all loved it on Instagram and I couldn’t be happier with this statement leather jacket! Isn’t it gorgeous?

Then we have the American Eagle Strigid Mom Jeans that I picked up in the store in the United States a few months ago. I am obsessed with these jeans! The knees are blown out and they are rigid at the front, stretch at the back. What more could you ask for in a mom jean? They’re similar to the jeans that I wore in my how to style mom jeans for short women blog post, but these are darker and more ripped. I wear them with a cuffed hem and am obsessed with them as summer jeans! I took size 4 in these if you need a reference!

Lastly, the hoody that I am wearing right now as I type this out – The Essential Pop Over Hoody in Mauve from Abercrombie & Fitch. I would say that dusky rose shades are my absolute favourite when it comes to clothing, I always gravitate towards it, and the colour of this hoody is near perfection! It’s massively oversized as it’s unisex, but I took a size small so that I can wear it huge. It comes in about 15 different colours, but I think this one suits my skintone the best!

– Anyway, these are a few new pieces that I own! What items do you love?

    Love the cosy pink hoodie! And I can see why you went back for that jacket and ended up ordering online – it’s such a cool version of a denim jacket and looks so good on you! 🙂

    Hope you are having a lovely weekend. It’s a very rainy one here!
