Because, gold.

drybar and josie maran from sephora

I don't know what it is about gorgeous packaging and gold twinkly things but they get me every time. I'm such a sucker for things that either smell nice or look nice so it's no surprise that I seem to collect such things.

A couple of weeks ago I did the dangerous thing of pouring through Sephora for most of a Sunday afternoon and lets just say I was feeling a bit generous. There's so many brands and gorgeous products that we just can't get in the UK but thanks to Sephora most of these can be shipped over if you're willing to pay the tax.

I had quite a bit of hair chopped off a while ago and sine then I've been on a mission to be a bit more adventurous with styling my hair. No surprise then that I ended up buying a few bits from Drybar, a brand that you can only get Stateside to help with that quest. My favourite of the products I got has to be the Drybar Gold Mine Shimmering Leave-In Conditioner. I mean, just look at that bottle of goodness. It's essentially a bottle of liquid gold that leaves my hair super soft and gets all the tangles out. It has tiny flecks of gold shimmer in it which are relatively subtle but manage to brighten up my copper tresses. When I go to the US later in the year I'm seriously stocking up on this and a few more treasures from Drybar.

On a equally as pretty rose gold theme is the Josie Maran Argan Enlightening Illuminizer. Look beyond the American spelling and what you have here is a gorgeous liquid highlighter which adds the perfect glow to any cheekbone. It's a gorgeous champagne hue that blends wonderfully and reminds me a little of Benefit's Sun Beam (but wayy better, sorry Benefit!). I've been mixing a little in with my primer as well to add an all-over glow. It's got argan oil in (as do all Josie Maran products), so I find it really comfortable to wear on my dry skin. You're welcome.

Lastly, and on a more personal note is this beautiful ring that belonged to my grandmother. It's got seven small diamonds set into a little silver petal on top of an 18 carat gold ring and I absolutely love it. My nan never wore it as it was too small for her but absolutely huge on me, so I had it resized so I can enjoy it on her behalf and remember her at the same time.

What do you think of these little gold jewels?
