My new Paul's Boutique set has arrived!

I mentioned in a post I wrote a while ago (here) that I had gotten a new Paul's Boutique set, since I loved my first one so much. Well, now that set is here, and I must say that Paul's Boutique items look just as nice in real life as they do in pics! (not everything you buy online does, in case you haven't noticed...)
Here is a detail shot as well, in case you want to take a look at the charms you get when you buy a Paul's Boutique bag:
So I am very pleased with these purchases too, and definitely think I will be getting more stuff from this brand in the future as well.

Shopped: New Look bag and wedges from ASOS

New Look is a brand that I am not that familiar with, but I have been eyeing some of their stuff on ASOS lately, and today I finally took the plunge and ordered these aztec printed wedges (because I need a new pair of wedges anyway, I love how wedges elongate my legs, and I really don't have enough pairs):

And a bag that looks like it might match the wedges pretty well, even though I am not 100 % sure about that, but it's worth a try for someone like me, who absolutely loves matching sets!

Olivia Munn wearing THAT dress

Remember how I blogged about Herve Leger's gorgeous dress for InterMixOnline a while ago? Well, it turns out this dress does not only look good in shop images, but it looks just as stunning while being worn too, as Olivia Munn showed recently when she wore it in New York:

What my weekend has consisted of so far

Some shopping...
Lovely cupcakes...
Trying out some new, interesting drinks, such as Limoncello, Watermelon Liquour and some Cava...
... as well as some eatable goodies from Fox Home's new Della Villa range. This is a divine Toffee Nougat topping, for instance. Perfect for pancakes and waffles!
So I must say my weekend has not been bad at all so far.

Hope all my readers are having a great weekend as well!

Shopped: 2 new Paul's Boutique items from ASOS

I wrote about my new Paul's Boutique bag and my new Paul's Boutique wallet a while ago, and I was so happy with both the bag and the wallet (see an image of it below) that I decided to get some more stuff from this brand.
Since it's summer, I wanted something with a more summery feel, and when I saw that this zig zag bag was also on sale, I knew I had found the perfect candidate for my next Paul's Boutique purchase:

And since I am a big fan of matching sets, I also decided to get the matching wallet:

Let's hope I like this new set as much as my previous Paul's Boutique set when it arrives! I must say I have been getting quite a lot of compliments for my current Paul's Boutique set, so not only do I love it myself, everyone else seems to be a big fan of my Paul's Boutique items too! So these items were definitely good purchases!

Today I'm loving...

... this limited edition Herve Leger dress for InterMixOnline:

Has to be one of the prettiest Herve Leger dresses I've ever seen! And I love that it's red too! It really looks like the perfect dress for a date!

Shopped: At the ASOS sale

It's no secret that I love shopping at ASOS, but somehow my wish list over there always seems to be so long that I never actually get around to ordering everything I want. And the items that have to wait the longest to get ordered are the rather boring ones. Somehow shopping for a new, pretty dress, for instance, always seems like so much more fun than buying basics and stuff like socks.

So I think their sales are an excellent opportunity to pick such "boring" items up, and that's actually what I've been doing during their sales for a long, long time already. This time I mostly got socks, not that I need them now, living in a super hot and humid country, but I will come fall and winter, and it's nice to be prepared for that in advance. These are the pairs I got:

I also got a pair of white Havaianas that were on sale too. I love Havaianas and have so many pairs already, making these a true staple for me, but for some reason I don't have a white pair yet. So I was happy to be able to pick these up at the sale as well:
