What’s On My Dresser?

A SNEAK PEEK OF WHAT’S CURRENTLY LITTERING MY DRESSER…

*Paid collaboration with Astrid & Miyu*

One of the huge perks of upsizing when we moved was the chance at having a space to get ready in, a space to throw my extra clothes and shoes (oh my gosh I never realised how many shoes I owned until they had their own room – where were they before?!) and jewellery. I guess it’s a dressing room of sorts? Part dressing room/beauty room/office, it’s a slash-y of a room! A place to store the things I have too much of – mainly the afore mentioned jewellery, shoes and, of course, beauty products. Fun fact, the top drawer of this chest alone currently stores jewellery boxes. I need to sort things out and cut down, but just to give you an idea of scale, that’s the stage things are currently at!

Extreme hoarding aside, today I thought I’d give you a little peek at what I’m keeping on top of my dresser. There’s a full tour for this room coming to my channel soon, but until then I thought it might satisfy some curious eyes and feed my need to post photos of this set up – it’s quite cute and I’m really pleased (/smug) about it. The chest of drawers itself is the Kiera Chest of Drawers from Oliver Bonas I’d dreamed of owning this for so long and I was so pleased to have been able to fit it in to this space. Balanced on top is the Metal Framed Round Wall Mirror from West Elm – another item I’ve loved for so long and was so happy that I found a spot in the house that was just calling out for it.

On the right of the dresser we have a cute pot from H&M Home (originally meant for toothbrushes I think?) that houses my Powder Blue makeup brushes from Real Techniques, a pink face brush from Guerlain that I can’t bring myself to use, Fleur De Force Brow Pencils and a Tom Ford Velvet Orchid Rollerball (yup, get thee to a Sephora, they exist). Nestled around it is one of my favourite Diptyque fragrances and the most adorable cactus jewellery holder from the Zoella Lifestyle range! This is where I keep a lot of my earrings and rings stored right now as the dish in my bedroom is overflowing and things are looking a tad tragic.

My current jewellery favourites are from Astrid and Miyu, a jewellery brand I’ve been a long time fan of for their gorgeous ear cuffs, but their earrings and rings are equally as stunning. The brand is based in London and their contemporary jewellery pieces play with juxtaposition beautifully, mixing both classic and edgy designs, which is one of the reasons why I’ve become so fond of them. Their cuffs, which they are best known for, are designed to be worn both alone and stacked together, and have so many different variations of metals and stones, from dainty rose gold cuffs to more edgy gunmetal and gold pieces. The variety of metals and stones ranges through all their collections, from earrings right through to necklaces. With so many options to choose from, and so many combinations to play with, there really is something unique for everyone.

My current favourites are the gold wishbone ear cuffs with the black stones as they add an edgy feel to something quite dainty and feminine (a good example of how Astrid and Miyu take something very feminine and give it more of an edge). Today I’m wearing the gold and rose gold fiztgerald cuffs with the clear stones as it works nicely with the rose gold Zodiac earrings, which are super dainty and I’ve been wearing them so much recently. But a lot of the time I enjoy mixing a lot of their fitzgerald ear cuffs together with their wishbone ear cuffs, mixing golds and gunmetals for a more edgy feel. For rings I have the Double Bewitched Ring in Silver and these delicate little Astrid and Miyu “The Perfect One” rings. Sometimes I wear just one alone, but more often I stack all three together, and the metals when worn in the right order blend really nicely together. The perfect mixed metal look!

Then we have the constant littering of makeup that is often strewn across the surface. In addition to testing products at my desk, this is also a space where I have a good old play with new things. New in favourites include the YSL All Hours Foundation (oh my god it’s SO GOOD), the Glossier Haloscope Highlighter in Topaz and the Charlotte Tilbury Instant Eye Palette. The Glossier Stretch Concealer and By Terry Baume De Rose have become permanent fixtures that I keep out to sooth and cover the aftermath of makeup experiments.

To the left of the mirror we have Chanel No.5 (because it’s pretty), Jo Malones Basil & Neroli and one half of an Oliver Bonas Quartz Book End (seriously the most beautiful and decorative book ends I’ve ever seen) to balance things out. The grey of the crystal matches a few of the drawers on the chest so nicely – as a matter of fact a lot of the accessories on top match a drawer on the chest – it’s all ended up being very colour co-ordinated!

      DIVORCE AND MARITAL BREAKTHROUGH

      It all started when my husband cheated on me with another woman unknowing to him that the woman is a wizard, the woman castes a spell on my husband which made my husband change his feelings towards me and the kids and broke our 6 years marriage. i was confused and stressed because of the pains of being a single mother, when i called a friend and explained my marital challenges to her, she instructed and directed me to contact a great powerful spell caster called Dr. Ugo Wonders living in Florida. i contacted Dr. Ugo and explained my problems, he assured me his help and it was 100% guaranteed. i provided the materials for the spell and in 48 hours, after Dr Ugo Wonders of generalspelltemple@gmail.com finished casting the spell, my husband was free from the evil woman spell and he came back home to us a day after begging us to forgive him. i was so shocked and short of words and here i am today happily testifying so the world can know how this great man helped me with his real powerful spell.

    I just got a new dresser and this has given me some major styling inspo :)! I've been looking for bookends like that FOREVER, I love the other color they come in too. Sadly I'm Canadian and they don't ship here. Wah! Diptyque is one of my all time favorite candle brands, but I've never tried there perfumes before. Do you have a favorite scent from them? I'm obsessed with the rose candles!
