Yes I bought another Zara bag . . .

I have a weakness for Zara bags. They are the first thing I search for when I visit Zara online (second is coats) & I'm always left lusting after at least two after a quick page browse. Everything about them is always so spot on - the quality, style, colour, size & price. I'd say they are the best affordable bags on the high street. 

The Mini City bag with zips is the newest addition to my Zara bag family. I ordered it online Wednesday night & it arrived yesterday morning - Zara always has such quick delivery & brilliant customer service. I got it in light pink (I call it dusty pink) & I also spotted it in red & light blue. This little beauty definitely looks more expensive than it's £39.99 price tag.

I thought the light, powdery colour was gorgeous for Spring/Summer but I can see myself using this all year round as it makes a change to my other darker bags. The size is perfect for all my daily essentials comprising of three zip pockets (the small one at the front is an ideal size for a phone), a middle compartment with three different size pockets, & a detachable shoulder strap. 

This beautiful bag will certainly be getting a lot of use over the next few months & already had its first outing today . . . 

FYI my absolute DREAM would be for Zara to do a collaboration (think along the lines of the H&M designer ones) but focus only on bags with the one & only . . . Chanel. Think about it - Chanel + Zara + bags + affordable prices = a very happy me, plus hundreds of others who would appreciate these creations. Seriously it's a collaboration waiting to happen. In my dreams . . .

Lupita: Awards Season Sweetheart

My favourite from the red carpet this year was definitely Lupita Nyong'o. She didn't put a foot wrong with a rainbow of beautiful dresses and her custom made (!) Prada dress she was to the Oscars on Sunday was perfection. I love how she called the colour 'Nairobi blue'.

Some of Lupita's other red carpet looks . . .

Pinterest: February

A round up of my favourite pins from February:

Rebecca Minkoff

1. Rebecca Minkoff Jules Cross Body Bag from Shopbop
I've been browsing the Rebecca Minkoff bag section on Shopbop a lot over the past couple of months waiting for the Mini Moto to come back in stock. When I saw this little gem added to the already beautiful bag filled pages I was won over. I'm also lusting after one of the Mason wallets. I think an RM purchase will be made. Watch this space. . . 

kiwi blueberry mojitos
2. Kiwi Blueberry Mojito.
I love the original mojitos (my favourite alcoholic beverage) & I'm always keen to try variations on this classic. Strawberry mojitos will forever remind me of Ibiza. I'd never heard of this combination before but it sounds goood. The picture alone is mouthwatering. Roll on summertime!

Future living room! Cozy with plenty of cushions
3. Interior beauty.
Now this is my dream living room. Candles, flowers, pretty lights, neutral colour palette & cushions. LOTS of cushions. It looks so beautiful & cosy. Major home inspiration!

Gorgeous bathroom
4. More interior beauty.
This bathroom...just wow! That cabinet is stunning, I have a feeling it was once an antique wardrobe. To just have a bathroom big enough for it would be amazing. Again, major home inspiration (for when I have my own house).

Just perfect
5. The Beach Life
This looks perfect. Can I be there right now please? . . .
