MAY: TOP FIVE

My top products in home, beauty and style for the month.
You can find last month’s here.

 

SMEG X LAVAZZA COFFEE MACHINE
I had been eyeing up various coffee machines as the finishing touch for the kitchen, and decided to go with this one  – and I’m so happy I did. I didn’t want to go full Smeg with every appliance, but love the kitsch-ness of this one, and that it’s not just looks: this makes some damn good coffee too. I was particularly excited to make  a good icee coffee now that I could create an espresso (my old Stovetop wouldn’t allow) and have been told by friend’s it’s better than their local coffee shop, to which I couldn’t be more chuffed.

DIOR 323 DUNE NAIL POLISH
I’ve been looking for a dupe to the limited edition Chanel nude  shade and this Dior one is the closest match I’ve found, it’s got a slight more clay tone to it but I kind of love it even more for that!

SKIMS UNDERWEAR
I think right now we’re all very much trying to find a balance between comfort and style when it comes to clothes, but even more so our underwear. I”d heard so much about Skims over the past year and decided it was time to try it out, and I was pleasantly surprised! Well cut, good quality and super soft, the 3 items I got from the stretch rib range are amazing and fit so well.

ANISSA KERMICHE VASE
Since turning adult (I’m going with it since my 30th and buying a flat last year) I’ve been very much into quality homewares, and not just pieces that’ll stand thee test of time but pieces that are really beautiful and interesting to look at. It’s no secret I’m obsessed with the female form and this vase is as much cheeky (pun intended) as it is chic – I got one in dark blue a couple years back and recently a white for more colourful bouquets as I love to contrast. It’s also a great talking piece for any visitors!

MANGO ZIP UP JUMPER
I
know I love a piece when I find it hard to take off for the first 10 days, and this jumper has been just that. I don’t have another black jumper and wanted something that was super easy and a little oversized for ease of pairing with other items. This top looks as good with leggings as it does with jeans or a silk skirt.
