July Favourites

My Petit Canard July Favourites 2

Like June, my July favourites have been quite heavily been focused on homeware, with some more lovely finds for my little blogging space project and our more recent hallway project that we started. Its taking me a little while longer to complete them than I had hoped, but we are definitely almost there now. One or two more pieces and then I think we’ll be done! So here are my July favourites, with again some fantastic finds from the New Look Home range which I am just loving at the moment.

My Petit Canard July Favourites - Plants

1. Smiley Face Succulents

My absolute favourite find this month are these pastel pink and mint smiley face succulents plants from New Look Home. Since discovering their new homeware range last month I cant help but pop in store when I’m in town to see what new pieces they have in, and as soon as I saw these there was no way I was leaving without them. They are the cutest little plant pots I have ever seen and I love the pastel colours and thought these would be perfect to dress our new GLTC shelves that we’ve put up in the hallway. They are faux succulents but look so convincingly real. I hate faux plants with a passion, but I was so impressed with these that for once I didn’t mind. They are also really reasonably priced at only £4.99 each, a steal if you ask me!

2. Copper Potted Succulent

At the same time that I discovered the smiley face succulents I also saw this copper potted beauty. Perfect as I have been looking for a plant or three to adorn my own gorgeous GLTC shelves in my new blogging area at home. I am loving copper and rose gold at the moment so this was a perfect addition to my new space. It fits perfectly with the colour scheme, look and feel that I am creating for myself. Again this is a faux plant, but is so well presented that you would never know. It’s a similar size to the smiley face succulents and is also priced £4.99.

3. Baby Milestone Cards

Finally I am loving these baby milestone cards that I purchased from Paper and Wool through Not on The High Street. I wanted something distinctly different from the recognisable Milestone cards that most places sell and really liked the monochrome look and feel of these ones. There are 24 cards capturing lots of different milestones which include all the monthly milestones that you would expect to see as well as lots of other first year milestones. I didn’t have any of these the first time round and really regret not getting them so I am really looking forward to using these with the little man. These are a little more pricy than the Milestone cards at £20 but the quality of them is great and what you’re paying for here is the unique design.

So those are my July favourites. Lots more things to make our home beautiful and capture exciting new milestones. What things have you found this month that you love and have brought you joy?

    I love the smiley faced pots. I decorate my own with my little boy’s handprint. They always make me smile! #MarvMondays

    I love those smiley pots. I really should get some plants but I’m so bad for killing plants. I’m much better with pets and children who can tell me they’re hungry/hot/cold/ill!

    We missed the boat with the milestone cards thing (I mean, he’s one now, he’s hit most of them) but the ones you found are absolutely gorgeous!! The plants are cute, but we have a climber so they’d need to be so high up they’d be wasted in our house! πŸ™ #MavMondays

    Ah lovely mix of things, I love milestone cards and those are gorgeous. My favourite thing for July I think was probably my new Fred and Noah leggings for the little one in real whales with a pair of gold hummingbirds saved for when he’s bigger (although now I’m concerned they are too girly). I have a baby clothes obsession!! Other favourite thing finally joining the iPad club!! Yay! #marvmondays will miss you guys for the next few weeks x

    Oh wow, I love all of these! Those plant pots are so cute, I’m going to have to pop in and take a look at their range in the New Look in town. And I love the ideas of those milestones cards. I’ve got a couple of friends who are due their baby’s soon and think I will have to invest in these for them. #MarvMondays

    I am in love with succulents right now, as I am not killing them YAY! I have a few around the house and have found some gorgeous pots, but these smiley faces are adorable, plus in my fav colours. Cooper is also so in right now, goes beautiful with pastel and dusty pinks. Great finds! #MarvellousMondays

      They seem to be the plant of the moment! I can’t get enough of them either and was actually looking for some real ones but thought these looked to fab not to buy πŸ˜‰ well done for keeping your succulents alive, it’s something I’d celebrate too as I’m terrible with plants!

  16. August 11, 2016 / 7:33 pm

    I didn’t know that New Look did home stuff! Those post are so cute. Am off to check out their range now! #MarvMondays

    Oh those smiley face pots are very cute ideal to brighten up any blogging space! I love the milestone cards too, unfortantely I have been pretty rubbish with ours and with the baby book this time round but hoping to get the ‘firsts’ as I take a photo a day and use an app to store them so that’s my excuse anyway!! Xx Thanks for hosting #MarvMondays
