December Favourites

December Favourites - Olivia December Favourites; Watch, Make Up Brushes, Coaster, quote cardsDecember is always a bit of a bumper month for me as we have my birthday and then we have Christmas and the Mr always makes sure I am suitably spoilt, as do my family. I have been gifted so many lovely things this month and am so excited to share my favourites which I absolutely love with you all.

Olivia Burton Watch

I have wanted an Olivia Burton watch ever since I spotted her pretty watches popping up all over Instagram. They are just gorgeous. Each and every one, and I really struggled to pick just one watch from her beautiful collection. I’ve previously been a bit of a Michael Kors girl when it comes to watches, but there is something about the classic, yet super modern look of an Olivia Burton watch that I just love. Ever since I put this little beauty on I havent been able to take it off and I have the feeling that I may have to add to my collection with another one or two of these watches in the near future. There are just so many pretty colours and styles!

Zoeva Make Up Brushes

My love for rose gold went up a notch or two this year and when I started to spot pretty wooden make up brushes also popping up on Instagram I went on a bit of a hunt to track down some for myself. I have a small collection of MAC make up brushes, but have always wanted to get a proper complete set of make up brushes and so when I found these beautiful rose gold and wooden Zoeva brushes at Selfridges they went straight onto my Christmas list. I was so pleased to open these up on Christmas day and cant wait to display them alongside my growing make up collection. Not only is my make up collection beautiful, but it now looks it too!

Capture By Lucy Backdrop

For months I have been looking for beautiful but affordable backdrops that I can use for my blogging photos and was delighted earlier this month when the super talented Lucy from Capture by Lucy brought out her very own range. I was so excited to open this beautiful wooden white backdrop on my birthday and have been itching to take beautiful photos on it. I love the quality and durability of it and know already that I will be adding to my collection of her backdrops. For anyone looking for photo backdrops like these I would definitely recommend checking out Lucy’s beautiful backdrop range.

Marble Coaster

Ever since I set up my desk and blogging space earlier this year I have been adding beautiful pieces to it and this gorgeous marble coaster from Oliver Bonas is the latest addition which was gifted to me at Christmas by my sister. Alongside my love for rose gold, my love for marble has grown this year and I just love this monogram marble coaster which is a little different from most monogram products out there at the moment. It looks so pretty and really ties in well with my very white blogging space. I cant wait to start using it for the copious amounts of tea that I drink each day.

Kikki K Quote Cards

I am a huge fan of Kikki K and I love their quote cards which are quite unlike anything I’ve come across before. This is one of many themed sets that they sell and will be perfect perched on my desk for some daily inspiration. I love positive quotes and there are just so many great ones in this pack of ten that comes with a little wooden stand to pop the cards into. Its going to be perfect to go into the new year with and keep the positive momentum going through the year!

So those are all my December favourites. Lots of beautiful and inspiring things that bring me joy and make me smile. What things have you found or been gifted that you love and that have brought you joy this month?
