Perfect coat 2.0 and other awesome things

So last week I had my new coat stolen which I was genuinely heartbroken/bitter over for a good 48 hours. Then the other day when I was off work being sneezy and feverish in bed (probably as a result of having to walk home without my coat, ha!) I thought I'd browse the internet for a new coat. To my delight I discovered that Asos had my coat in stock again so I immediately ordered it and almost managed to forget the sting of having to fork out the money for a new coat three weeks after buying it originally. When it arrived I realised my new coat isn't 100% identical to the old one but it'll do. And it does have an awesome big hood! Allow me to present my perfect coat version 2.0 (apologies for the brightness of the photo):

My coat isn't the only awesome purchase made by yours truly in the past week. I decided to treat the kitties to some new apparel fit for the season, too!

Unfortunately, Isobel was less than impressed with her present. I love how her white chest looks like Santa's beard. Grumpy little Santa Miz!

And then for no particular reason other than me already being in my bedroom with my camera out, I thought I'd take a picture of my favourite area of the flat. When we moved in we painted one wall with blackboard paint and I have since claimed this part of the bedroom as my little boudoir. I immediately fell in love with the old chest of drawers when I saw it at Portobello Market last year and knew I had to have it. I love the pale pink colour and the little porcelain knobs, so pretty and kitsch! In the end Daniel got it for me and it means a lot to me.

Have a lovely day!


  1. I love your cats' hats! And her little chest totally looks like a beard, what a festive little meow. I know that cats aren't crazy about outfits, but I love it so much when they wear them. I should start making them!

    How do you like the chalkboard paint? Do you write on it? I've been wanting to try it. And the little pink drawers with golden pulls are lovely <3

  2. The plan was to take pictures of the cats in their Santa hats, then photoshop them into really tacky Christmas landscapes and then turn them into Christmas cards, but I think we might just have to photoshop the hats on the cats, too!

    The chalkboard paint is great, it has a really nice, matte finish and is great for writing on. I think we'll do a square on our kitchen wall too, so we can write shopping lists and little silly messages for each other.


  3. I once lost 3 friggin CDs that I had just bought. No one returned them to the shop or their lost and found. I was so pissed that I went back to the shop the very next day and bought the same CDs, all 3. So I know how you must have felt about your coat! It's really cute, by the way!

  4. Yeah it just feels so... WRONG. Paying twice sucks. I hate dishonest people!

    And thank you. It's nice and comfy. :)
