Spotted: This Week in Beauty and Fashion

Hello Hello,

This week I give you a combined Beauty and Fashion post!

Here’s what I spotted for this week 🙂

  1. Ulla Johnson Lia Crocheted Cotton Tote Bag

  2. Diane von Furstenberg Koko Slingback Flat

  3. Fresh Sugar Lemon Hydrating Lip Balm

  4. Anthropologie Mini Sea Urchin Candle

Lia Crocheted Cotton Tote Bag by Ulla Johnson

I squealed the minute I saw this tote bag. First off, the colour!! I love this colour and the round gold tone handles. The bag is handmade in Peru from cotton. I think it would be a fun addition to your bag collection. It’s great for summer.

Koko Slingback Flat by DIANA VON FURSTENBERG

I’ve actually been looking for some new flats to add to my shoe collection. I recently recycled some clothes and got rid of a lot of the things that I don’t wear anymore. I realized that I have a lot of sneakers but barely any sandals or flats. I love the dress-worn-with-sneakers look but I think I’d like to have other options. I think these flats by Diane von Furstenberg are simple, feminine and elegant. I think they will work well with many different outfits. They will work in both the spring and summer months.

Sugar Lemon Hydrating Lip Balm by Fresh

I’m a big fan of the brand Fresh and I love trying all their products. My lips have been a bit chapped recently and a lot of the lip products I’ve been using just haven’t quite worked as well as I would’ve liked them to. I popped into Sephora recently and tested it. It certainly felt moisturizing and I adore the scent. The product itself is smooth and is great for combating dryness.

Mini Sea Urchin Candle by Anthropologie

I’m the type of person that burns candles all year round. They make me feel so happy. This candle caught my eye as it is in a cement vessel that resembles a sea urchin. I love sea life and I feel like this candle will remind me of walks on the beach in Langstrand or Cape Town. It has a fresh citrus and bergamot scent. If you’re into candles like I am, you may want to consider this one. I know that once I get through the candle I’ll be able to reuse this cement sea urchin pot it came in for another purpose and that’s another reason why I fell in love with it.

So that’s everything I SPOTTED this week in both beauty and fashion.  Hope you enjoyed my list. Let me know what you think.
