Frankie's Three Things for April

Hello friends!

So I've decided that once a month (which is roughly the amount I blog these days anyway - whoops), I'm going to share THREE things that I really love or am enjoying at the moment. It will probably be a very shallow list of things, but hey! We are living in a material world, and I...aspire to be nothing like Madonna.

Here are my three things for the month of April:

  • Tallulah Star Leaf Cocktail Ring by Sushilla
    If you know me in real life, you may know that I worked at the lovely Push PR for a while last year and that is where I was introduced to Sushilla. Made with the most beautiful precious stones, all of Sushilla's jewellery is stunning, but this ring stole my heart straight away. I finally managed to get my hands on one this week (pun intended), and I don't think I could possibly love it more. The Star Leaf stone is SO intricately beautiful that I cannot stop staring at it. It's distracting me from my work and day-to-day life, but who cares? It even makes my sausage fingers look less sausage-y. My hands are very pleased with me. That sounded a bit rude, didn't it? Sorry.  

  • Kraken iPhone 5 case from Not A Scratch
    Recently I finally conformed and got an iPhone 5 (sell out), and wanted to get a fancy case for it. After hunting around on Etsy for something a bit different, I stumbled upon Not A Scratch and the rest, as they say about less trivial subjects, is history. All of their unusual designs are engraved with lasers (modern, eh?) into the wood of your choice, and the delivery is insanely fast. I went for the Kraken because it is, for want of a far more eloquent word, awesome. I also ordered my sister one of their custom cases for her birthday, and they managed to capture the perfect face of my baby nephew beautifully. Please see both below.

(Which one is the Kraken and which one is my nephew? You decide...)

  • Role Models by John Waters 
    I must confess that I haven't had a chance to read much of this yet, but so far I am loving this book. John Waters is an incredible writer (and director, obviously) and if you love his brand of weirdness, you'll more than likely love this. I got my copy from The Society Club Shop (which also happens to be one of my most favourite places in the entire world - but more on that soon...), which is lucky because an affordable copy seems hard to find, even from the likes of Amazon. Start hunting, people.

What three things are YOU loving at the moment? Tell me right now please. 

Much love,
