Most Loved #2.



I can already tell that the temptation to begin each of these monthly posts by saying ‘where on earth has the past month gone?!’ is going to be strong. But it’s true though, where *has* February disappeared to? I can’t say I’m sorry the past four weeks have zipped by, since it surely must be a universal truth that February is the lamest of months. January might be longer and darker, but at least we’ve got memories of Christmas and hopeful New Year’s resolutions to keep us going through it. That’s why the little things- a new pair of shoes, great coffee in the mornings, a stack of brightly coloured bowls- are so important in these rather grey months.

The White Company White Pompelmo hand & body balm – £20.

I was actually given this body balm at a little Christmas dinner The White Company hosted back in December, and have been so seriously impressed with it. I’d never tried any of The White Company’s skincare range before, and have loved this one so much I ended up buying a couple of others bits for my Mum for Christmas! The fragrance is to die for (of course, it’s a White Co product after all!), and it’s just the right consistency for using daily. It’s not the most easily absorbed of lotions, but the plus points of its lovely citrussy scent and the fact that it comes in a pump-bottle make up for having to leave it a minute or two to soak in before sticking my jeans on a hundred-fold!

Anthropologie Latte bowls - £3.50 each.

If I’m being honest, the unbridled joy this little stack of brightly coloured bowls brings me is verging on embarrassing. The white and blue ones I’ve had for probably a year or so now, and I bought the peach and yellow right at the beginning of February during a day in town with Kathryn. They’re arguably the most reasonably priced item in the whole of Anthropologie…though maybe it’s a clever marketing move to keep us buying more bowls each time new colours are released? Well hey- it’s working! ;) But really though, the happiness that comes from eating your breakfast out of a bright yellow bowl? Priceless!


Zara Home dark amber candle – £19.99

This candle was a birthday gift from my lovely cousins back at the end of January, and has introduced me to the magical world of Zara Home! I knew the store existed before but hadn’t ever tried anything from it, and if the quality of this candle’s anything to go by, I’ll definitely be shopping there more frequently from now on. The candle itself is gorgeous- a really dark, warm and spicy fragrance, with a good even burn. It’s lasted such a long time as well, and throws off such gorgeous light thanks to the double wicks. The ‘Green Herbs’ candle is next on my list to try…

Erato ‘Pictures of Pets’ album.

Erato was a total ‘stumble upon’ group for me, back in the summer of 2013. I’d come across them via Lennon and Maisy’s cover of their ‘Call your Girlfriend’ remake, but could only find one or two of their songs online at the time. Which I listened to on repeat so much so that Jason was basically tearing his hair out, and had to ask me to stop trying to sing along to their Swedish songs in what was blatantly total gobbledegook ;) Their ‘Pictures of Pets’ album (released last year, I think) is totally amazing- really easy listening but not so much so that it fades into the background, and full of their trademark ethereal harmonies. ‘Mariestod’ is my favourite song from the album by far. Oh, and it’s available on Spotify, which is always a winner!

Reebok Skyscape Harmony slip ons – £40
{though the only ones I can find online are listed as £54)

These are the most comfortable shoes in the world. Fact. Jason and I popped into Reebok the weekend we were in Guildford buying wedding rings, and I tried these on on a total whim. They were totally dreamy but I decided not to buy them at the time, and literally could not stop thinking about them the rest of the weekend. They eventually came home with me a couple of days later from Richmond, and all was well with the world! They’re insanely light and well cushioned, and feel like walking on teeny tiny clouds. And they’re machine washable! I am, in short, obsessed. Reebok- never stop making these, okay?

Waitrose Tarrazu Mountain ground coffee – £3.30, & Anthropologie Kebaya mug – £10.

Since becoming something of a coffee addict during the past couple of years, I’ve set about sampling  as many types of ground coffee as I can get my hands on trying to find the very best one. Some have been good, others have been terrible…and now I think I’ve finally found my favourite. It’s such a rich and fruity blend, and has such a beautiful flavour that I’ve been drinking it black more often than not this month. And I’m counting down the days until the warm weather arrives, bringing iced latte season with it! There’s a new bottle of vanilla syrup sitting ready and waiting in the cupboard for when the moment arrives…

And, speaking of coffee- this mug was a new addition to the getting-crowded-very-quickly mug cupboard in our kitchen this month, and I’m very much in love. It’s not horrendously heavy like some of Anthropologie’s other mugs, and, in true Goldilocks fashion, is *just* the right size!

And that, my friends, is the February round up! What silly things have been keeping you going through the past month? :)

    Ooh I love the look of those Reebok shoes. I always just buy cheap pairs of that style of shoe and they end up falling apart after a week. Think I may have to invest!

  • Bethany

    The mug and bowls from anthropologie are so lovely! I’ve never shopped in there before, but when I find a store I may have to pop in!

    So many lovely things! I’ve never thought of trying different coffee – I just go for instant, but maybe it would perk up my mornings! I’ve yet to ever venture into Anthropologie but I’d love to go next tiem I spot one.

    I love this style of post! They’re always so much fun to read and your photos are incredible!

    Anthropologie is pretty much my favourite shop to go in and just have a browse and the kitchen/homeware section is always my first port of call! At some point in the next year I want to replace all my crockery with pretty colourful pieces that don’t quite match and I think Anthropologie might just be the perfect place to pick them up.

    P.S. That breakfast – granola, yoghurt & pomegranates looks incredible, I may have to try it out tomorrow!

  • Abby Smith

    Lovely pictures – the Anthropologie bowls are lovely, I might pick some up for my friend as a house warming gift, I always thought their stuff was a lot more expensive, these seem really reasonable and so pretty!

    Love these posts so much! My dream day would be a shopping trip in the UK for sure because shipping costs so much. If I were a boutique I’d probably be Anthropologie, that is the dreamiest shop ever! Their headbands are to die for and the home section is beautiful. Music wise I’ve been listening to the Begin Again Soundtrack (Lost Star, Coming up Roses), Keira Knightley’s voice is so charming.

    Ps: thank you so much for your tweet Yesterday! I still have a big smile on my face Today. Ready to read for my thesis. ❤


    I’m totally in love with those bowls!!! <3

  • Polly Rowan

    Beautiful photos – I love how the coffee pot looks like it’s floating in the last picture!

    The latte bowls from Anthropologie surely are dreamy. Where is the tray in the last picture from? It’s gorgeous! x

    The brightly coloured bowls look so lovely and beautiful. They are perfect for the breakfast.

  • Debbie

    I love those bowls and those shoes. I’ve no idea where my nearest Anthropologie is, I must hunt it down. Are the other bowls the ones from Waitrose? I’ve been so tempted to buy them.

  • Samsam

    Unfortunately there are no Waitrose stores anywhere near me (or in the US in general, I think!) but that coffee sounds wonderful! Maybe if I ever get the chance to travel back to Europe, I’ll have to stop by and share a cup :) haha

    I loved this post Rosie – actually I love your entire blog! Thank you so much for the inspiration as I get started on my own blog :).
    I think a trip to Anthropologie is in order this weekend, you’re so right when you say breakfast is better out of bright dishes! Have a great day!
