These are the things Mumpty loves this week – 31/10/2014
This was SUCH a timely little suprise when it arrived in my mailbox! I had run out of moisturiser a week or so ago; the Sukin sample I’ve been using is just not heavy enough for me and I am waiting for my “courtesy of Flybuys” Trilogy Rosapene cream to turn up. So getting back to the Karen Farley moisturiser, I ordered a sample of this AGES ago off their website and had forgotten all about it to be honest, so when it turned up, I was happy, happy! Their products are all-natural and organic so that’s a nice start. I’ve been using it for three days now and so far I’m loving it; it smells fabulous, feels luxurious to put on and my skin feels plump and hydrated in the morning (my butt feels plump in the morning too, but I think that’s just too many carbs!) I’m liking this one and think I might buy a full-sized one when my Rosapene runs out.
♥ The Louis Vuitton Icons collection – Cindy Sherman
In last week’s MumptyLoves we looked at Louis Vuitton’s collaboration with Karl Lagerfeld. This week it’s the Cindy Sherman collaboration – Cindy created one of the most gorgeous, limited edition items I’ve ever seen; the “Studio in a Trunk” featuring silk-screened patches that recall vintage hotel labels; a luxurious vanity case; a camera Messenger bag and a total of 31 drawers to accommodate treasures large and small. The colours dazzle and are based on the hues of Cindy’s pet macaw, Mister Frida; there’s even a fold-up stool! Louis Vuitton has only created 25 of these, so if any of my photographer friends are keen, you’ll have to get in quick!
♥ My new skirt from Pinup Girl Clothing … the Jenny skirt in the Dancing Horses print
I’ve been wanting this for a while so when it came on sale, I decided I was just damm well going to get it. And guess what? It fits; it’s pretty and it’s very, very girly! ‘Nuff said. And goodness; the shipping was fast. I ordered it on Friday and it arrived Tuesday lunchtime – impressive huh. Especially since the Monday was a long weekend. Well done PUG – you rule!
♥ Lime Crime Velvetine in Suedeberry
I love the Lime Crime Velvetines – they go on well, last forever (like FOREVER!) and although I love the bloody-near-impossible-to-find Red Velvet, I am still very much enamoured by the gorgeous hue known as Suedeberry – particuarly with summer coming up. The picture above is a bit rubbish when it comes to demonstrating how great Suedeberry is, but it’s all I could find OK?! I did a little review of the Velvetines here – it was a
facelip-off between OCC Lip Tars and Lime Crime Velvetines – check it out!
Even though I’m still only a “baby blogger” and have only been blogging five minutes in the scheme of things, I’m absolutely loving it – I can’t believe I didn’t start my wee blog AGES ago! If you’re reading this, I hope you’re enjoying my blog as much as I am – check out all the awesome people I’ve been able to talk to already – so cool – and I’ve got lots more in the pipeline too.

♥ Lewis Road Creamery Chocolate Milk …
If you’re in New Zealand and you haven’t heard of the cult-like Lewis Road Creamery Chocolate Milk, you must have been living under a rock! Billed as the “perfect marriage” between Lewis Road Premium Whole Milk and Whitaker’s 5 Roll Refined Creamy Milk Chocolate – and it is DIVINE – you will not taste better! Hunt it down …
And finally … these! Aren’t they bloody gorgeous – and so understatedly (!) glam ! The Christian Louboutin Pensee – these would SO match my earrings *wink*
