Delightfully scented

20 years on who'd have though scratch & sniff would make a comeback? Designer Helen Rochfort; who's delightfully quirky bags have had me gleeing for years, has brought back scratch & sniff with a fashionable note.

Her latest autumn/winter range sees a selection of 3 scratch and sniff designs are part of the collection. I adore this cute cherry print for a touch of classic quirkyness. Not sure how I'd feel about having a sweet scented bag but perhaps the scents will win me over, I'll be poking at them in store when the collections make an appearance soon.

Just when you thought you'd seen it all...

Someone goes & surprises you with perhaps the most unimaginable lipstick ever.

I thought I was going mad the other day when I read about Paul & Joe's cat lipstick, turns out I wasn't going mad at all; it actually exists.

I'm not sure if I'd want to attempt applying a cat shaped lipstick, but I must admit it does look adorably eccentric; & the shades stunning to boot. More a collectible than an actual wearable lipstick.

It's all in the tea wear

I adore a good bit of elegant home ware, it can spruce up any place & personally it gives me that little fuzzy feeling of delight inside.

I don't know what it is about this time of the year that has me on a real kitchenware kick but I've been utterly gleeful about it lately. But you can't beat a good plate, cake stand, & vintage china.

One site that's had me giddy with excitement over their selection of whimsical home wares is Wysteria Lane. With vintage tea cups, darling tea pots, & trays; all in stunning designs & shades.

The tea cups, and 'tea bag' saucers in particular have caught my eye for afternoon tea essentials.

You can't beat the selection of darling plates, & cake stands at Urban Outfitters either. The new autumn selection screams afternoon tea in a delightfully quirky manner, if only their over sized tea cup garden pot was actually functional!
