today: new photo layout and a new cheap bag

coat (here), jumper (similar here) and jeans (here): topshop / shoes: asos (here) / bag: phillip lim, kidding, it’s from ebay (here) / watch: michael kors (here) / bracelets: asos (here, here, here and here)

yes, yes, a different format to my usual outfit pictures, but i (well, my boyfriend, i have to pay him back though booo) bought a new camera and tripod so they had to be tested this morning. i’m still trying to work out the heights and all the different settings, but i’ll get there eventually, i’m sure.
not like my previous collage style photos were outstanding or anything, but i really hope i don’t disappear into the ‘another blogger with a tripod’ category. as i do like blogging, i worry about these things all the time haha. oh, and it may take a while to show my face, as my dark circles don’t wanna quit at the moment (heavy duty concealer recommendations warmly welcomed) and they’re making me rather self-conscious. woe is me etc etc.

so, do you prefer these photos to my other ones? please let me know!

onto other topics: this is my new favourite bag. i always swore i’d never buy a copy, but after looking at the phillip lim version and being annoyed that it’s £200+ more in the UK than in america, i settled for this ebay version. thank you to vipxo for posting it on her ebay wishlist! i wish they did a red version so i could snap that up too.

as i posted on instagram (name: thelovecatsinc, let me know yours!), this week i received a lovely little gift from delilah dust in the form of this bee necklace. it’s so delicate and tiny and cute, i absolutely adore it. it’s online now in silver and gold, and you can get 10% off with the code ‘thelovecatsinc’.
along with this necklace came a tiny cross bracelet in gold which i’ll be including in a future post as it’s beautiful. i’ve definitely got my eye on this tiny triangle necklace, this tiny wishbone one and this gold hamsa bracelet too. they’re all seriously adorable!
