Little Things #16

Unicorn Powerbank*
Okay, so first up on the little things I've been loving lately has got to be my Unicorn Portable Charger from Prezzybox. Whilst I do have a few portable chargers already, none of them are anywhere near as gorgeous as this one. I mean, it looks like the unicorn emoji - it doesn't get much better than that, right?! It's really compact and in a rubberised material so it's really easy to just throw in your bag and go. Such a steal at £13.99 too - although it looks like it's sold out at the minute. Usually Prezzybox re-stock pretty regularly though, so keep an eye out for that one!

Peonies
Oh my gosh, I think 2017 was the year I well and truly fell in love with peonies. The ultimate blogger flower, peonies are in season right now and I just haven't been able to resist getting my hands on some. I'd been waiting for some to come into Aldi for weeks this week my prayers were answered - hooray! They're an incredible £3 a bunch from Aldi (two bunches are pictured) and they last so well. These babies have been in my possession for almost a week and they are still looking as beautiful as ever. I can't recommend enough getting some before they inevitably disappear! 

Mermaid Fruit Infuser*
So, we've all heard about how fantastic drinking water is - it makes your skin clearer, gives you more energy, helps you lose weight, blahblablah. But the thing is, it's so blimmin' boring! Whilst I'm more than happy to guzzle away on a bottle at the gym, day-to-day I find it really hard to reach for. So, this Mermaid Fruit Infuser (again, from my beloved Prezzybox) seemed like a really good way of making water a little more exciting, so I'm more likely to drink it. It has super cute shells all over the front and is emblazoned with the phrase 'I'm secretly a mermaid' (I wish) so it looks super pretty on my desk, but also it's obviously a fruit infuser so you can pop whatever fruit you want in the little infuser bit and it just gives your water a really nice, subtle flavour. I've been putting some frozen summer fruits in mine to keep it cool whilst making it a touch more exciting. 

Silver Tiara Ring*
Okay, so I know I go on about JewelleryBox.co.uk a lot, but it's honestly my favourite place right now to find jewellery. I recently picked up this Silver Tiara Ring (or princess ring, as I like to call it) and I am completely obsessed. It was a total steal at just £13 - I've seen a really similar one in Pandora for five(!!) times the price so it really is a total bargain. I've been wearing it constantly since I got it! 

'Caraval' by Stephanie Garber
Last but not least, a book I absolutely loved recently was 'Caraval' by Stephanie Garber. I must admit, what drew me to it at first was the pretty cover (I'd spied it on Sophie Makeup's Instagram - if you're not following her - go do it now!) but after reading up about it and seeing it being compared to 'The Night Circus' by Erin Morgenstern which I absolutely LOVED, I had to have it. It's a mix of fantasy and romance, and is all about the illusive Caraval - an interactive, once-a-year week-long performance that will make you wonder what is real and what is fantasy. I absolutely loved it and totally recommend it to anyone who loves a bit of magic and fantasy in their lives.

What little things have you been loving lately? Let me know in the comments!
