A few new favourites: Chloé Lauren Inspired Pumps

During a recent late night browse on ASOS, I came across these beauties, I think my eyes lit up at the sight of the pale pink, scalloped goodness I saw on the screen, ok so I'm probably getting a little carried away, but honestly, they're so pretty and basically what inspired me to do a little blog post about these and some of new additions I've been loving just lately. My instant thought was they were a really great homage to the Chloé Lauren Pumps, but of course at a fraction of the price. The only real difference is the laser cut hole in each scallop, but I personally wasn't looking for a direct copy and love that these offer a nod to the designer style, but have their own thing going on. They also go down to a UK size 2, and having tiny feet that never quite fill up a pair of size 3's, I knew these would probably be a lot more comfortable and I'd actually want to wear them instead of just look at them!
I've also been wearing this gorgeous monochrome fluted sleeve blouse lots in the past couple of weeks. You might be surprised to know it's from George! I popped into ASDA Living for something and ended up coming out with this. I'm a sucker for poker dots anyway, and I love the painted print effect, but the sleeves meant I couldn't walk away from it, I got it a couple of sizes bigger than I normally would and it covers my bump quite well as it's not too short, so pleased with this little purchase!
Before Christmas I was very kindly sent a bottle of Viktor and Rolf Flowerbomb which I believe is a limited edition bottle. It still contains the classic fragrance with it's floral notes of jasmine, rose, and patchouli to name just a few. Having loved it for years, I had never actually owned a bottle myself and I'm so pleased I have this to add to my perfume collection. It's sits so sweetly on my dressing table and is fast becoming one of my favourites.
Not sure if I've mentioned before that I like scallops? I ordered this bag at the same time as the shoes and the colour match it really good. I might not necessarily wear the bag and shoes together but I can already feel Spring creeping in (optimistic I know) and I think I'll reach for this delicate little clutch quite a bit as it warms up.
Finally I thought I'd mention a couple of little homeware/office accessories I've pick up lately. I found these adorable Eiffel Tower scissors on eBay recently, and they were only a few pounds so decided to pick them up as a nice little addition to my desk, they come in other colours too. The cute Kate Spade Photo album is actually a few years old now, but they're still stocked in John Lewis. It was a present from Rikki and I love looking through the family photos he put inside. Finally the little pink and gold note pad was from TKMaxx. It's constantly sitting on my desk and I'm always jotting down notes and little reminders on it. I included it in a stationery haul last year, but I did another one last week and if you like this notepad, you'll probably love everything in that video too so I'll link it for you here.

If you've blogged about any new additions to your wardrobe or home recently, please put the link in the comments as I love being nosey! And let me know if you'd like to see more posts like this.

Love Kate x

  5. An amazing testimony on a Native Iya Hindi root and herbs who help me to get pregnant, So me and my partner have been trying for a baby for the last 2 years now. I don’t have a regular cycle so it is hard for me to tell when I’m ovulating or not, but we always have sex at least 3 times a week, sometimes more. I know it can take up to a year to conceive but everyone i know who have had a baby have conceived within 2-3months of trying and it is really getting to me. my partner had a fertility test about a year ago and his sperm were fine. I’m thinking it could be a problem with me but I’ve never had any symptoms of any problems. My partner does smoke and have the occasional drink, and i used to smoke and also have the occasional drink. i know i’m slightly overweight but that shouldn’t affect our chances too much, one faithful day my friend told me to contact Native Iya Hindi that help her sister, then i contact the email. hindinative@yahoo.com,He sent the Herbs to me and gave instruction on method after three weeks the doctor confirm that i am pregnant thank you Native Iya Hindi for helping me get a baby, I am thankful for all he had done. contact him via email:(hindinative@yahoo.com .Or whats App number+19145295224), if you are trying to get a baby.

  6. I had doubts about magic spells after purchasing many spells that never worked I actually decided to never buy a spell again. I have tried different spell casters..Some of them never answered me after I paid and were obvious scammers, some really cast a spell but for some reason it didn't work. Then I saw a video on you-tube with a person who was mentioning she had results with Mama Anita. Despite the suspicions I had her site looked real so I gave spells a last try. It's probably the best decision I ever made in my life because it worked and my boyfriend came back with me After I broke up with him I spent a lot of time wishing that I could just turn the clock backwards.He helped me do just that. In fact our relationship feels like the break up never even happened. We have never been this happy or passionate, all thanks to mama Anita. If you're looking for a good spell caster look no further,you can contact her straight on (magic.lovespel@reincarnate.com).or (mamaanita.lovespellsolution@gmail.com)
