There’s a lot of ugly things in the world. I’m heartsick over all sorts of things. So I’m busting a little escape. An escape to pretty.
I’m sharing some prettily pretty prettiness that I’m currently crushing on.

Sally Hansen Complete Salon Manicure
Sally Hansen^ is cheap as chips, found in supermarkets (hello grocery budget!) and truly fabulous! I love my boutique nail brands but I often find myself reaching for my Sally Hansen. When I’m in a hurry, I really love my Sally Hansen Complete Salon Manicure. Two quick coats from a huge range of colours and I’m good to go for a few days. A miracle for my weak as shiz nails. I’m wearing the pretty Peach of Cake Click to shop^
Sara Happ The Lip Slip
I treated myself to Sara Happ The Lip Slip from Beauty Bay^ when they had a fab Christmas sale. I have to say that I’d buy it again at full price. Yep, I’d pay retail. I know right? $32 for a lip balm. This luxe elegant lip balm gives me soft, smooth lips with long lasting moisturising benefits. Plus it has the added benefit of making me feel like a princess. It is the perfect nude lip look too. Couldn’t love it more. And how pretty is the packaging? Click to shop^

I found these fabulous Typo Phone Skins and they’re the perfect solution. Only $5, available in iPhone 4, 5 and 6, and just hipster cute!

Kmart Ceramic Milk Bottles
Are you on the Kmart Love Train? Oh my goodness. I bought the world’s best swimmers there as a holiday emergency recently. A fabulous cornflower blue, with amazingly flattering shaped straps, ruched front and power mesh. For $25 full price. I know! I popped in yesterday just to check out the gorgeous new range of home decor. Dear gods. Amazing value for tiny prices! I couldn’t resist stocking up on the bright blue wire baskets (destined for my launtry / pandry storage shelves) and of course I couldn’t say no to a beautiful ceramic bunny for a whole $9.
But the winner for me was a chicken wire rack with three beautiful ceramic bottles in musk pink, creamy white and teal for $12. I found one that someone naughty had, ahem, rearranged – they obviously weren’t a fan of pink. I have two pink and one cream. I’ve been on the lookout for a while to find some gorgeous milk bottles for my Grandma’s vintage milk bottle basket. It might seem silly but I think it’s honouring the past.
I popped the remaining bottle on my kitchen bench in the little wire basket and found a home for my Kiwiana milkshake container and my beloved Typo Soda Pop bottle.
