These are the things Mumpty loves this week – 31/10/2014

♥ Karen Farley Age-Defying Intensive Moisturiser
MumptyStyle Karen Farley

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

MumptyStyle Dancing Horses Jenny

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 

Mumptystyle Limecrime 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.  If you want to read any of these Q&A’s, click here.  

♥ Lewis Road Creamery Chocolate Milk … 

MumptyStyle Lewis Road

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*
