So I finally burned to the bottom of my favourite Diptyque candle, these candles burn forever (which is a good thing)! You all know what happens to an empty Diptyque candle, it becomes a DIY storage jar for holding brushes, makeup, beauty tools and a million other things! I won't go into how I cleaned my empty candle holder as you can find posts on this everywhere, I used mine for holding some of my larger makeup brushes, I love this idea and looks so lovely on my dressing table.
My Chanel nail polishes are currently on display in this gold tray I bought in Dubai a while ago, so pretty.

Moroccan lantern, Ornate frame, White coasters, White baskets: All Zara Home
Zara home is one of my favourite shops for interiors, they have beautiful homeware, accessories and kitchenware etc. The first time I ever shopped in Zara home was in the London store, I think that's the only store they have here, why??! I bought all these lovely new purchases in the sale from the online store for the first time, it has free delivery if you spend a certain amount, always tempts me in!
You can see there is a white theme here as I'm obsessed with white, they really do have gorgeous white homeware, so chic, modern and very glam. I got this stunning large white moroccan lantern, love anything moroccan, an ornate white frame. Also got these pretty white coasters which have a lace effect, the problem I had with my old coasters was that they stuck to the mug every time you lifted off the coffee table, so annoying! these silicone ones are perfect! Couldn't resist these pretty white baskets which I'm using to store magazines and brochures.
I tend to buy Zara home things in the sales as most of their products are quite expensive, I really did get some bargains! They do have some lovely things in for the new season though...

Sheesham tripod lamp, Steel knuckles floor light, Brass knuckles table light, Washed Mango table light:
All from French Connection Lighting
French Connection is not a store most people associate with homeware but they have a great homeware range and they have some amazing interior accessories, occasional furniture and lighting. I love their modern and simple styles and the neutral tones throughout their products, also like the industrial edge some of the products have, so many interesting pieces and love how they've been styled on the website.
The lighting section has some great products that would suit any interior style, I'm actually looking to replace my old floor lamps and lamps in my home. My favourite is the Sheesham tripod lamp, I adore this style, looks so modern and retro at the same time, stunning! I also quite like the white floor lamp that looks like a giant desk lamp, this would be ideal as need some sort of direct lighting for when I'm my busy creating art and drawings in the living room on the sofa! Also, how stylish is the brass desk lamp, a great vintage style lamp to use on a desk or even bedside table, such a unique antique copper finish with a timeless design. The Washed Mango table lights have a wooden base to look like salvaged driftwood, love the modern simple style of these, perfect for bedside tables . Everything here would go with my interior decor style, modern, white, neutral colours with a natural and vintage vibe too.
Have you bought any new lighting lately?

Retro white storage unit: ebay
Zinc house lantern: Rose & Grey
A few new additions I bought for my home recently. I got the retro white storage unit in a componibili style for my cloakroom, love the modern retro style and white gloss finish, so practical as holds tons of things, it has 3 tiers with sliding door sections, this was purchased on ebay and is such good quality, however it's no longer available.
The house lantern is my favourite lantern, I've wanted one forever and finally found the perfect one in a zinc finsh, looks so warm and cosy and gives a gorgeous glow, lovely on a cold winter evening!
