Before we had started planning the main details of our wedding and honeymoon trip I knew full well that I'd need to take some serious spending money. I expected to buy way more make up and clothes than I did, it turns out I spent most of my spendos on art prints (I figured this was a more sensible decision than spending hundreds and hundreds in Sephora, although I did hit a few hundred...) and momentos of the trip. Memories are more important than more make up I thought, so I'm pleased I brought back a lot of lovely trinkets that will make me think of our wedding adventure whenever I see them. I've had quite a few requests from people wanting to see what I bought so I thought I'd share, this first post is of the random bits and bobs and then the second will be of my Sephora haul. Not shown here are a hat and lacey crop top that I bought at Torrid and the few bits I got at Alcatraz... I think mostly everything else is here. To be honest so much came back with us that it would be easy for me to forget something!
Loved to Death. I'd heard about it online somewhere and when I started following their Instagram a few months ago I fell in love with so many pieces that I just had to go. Unsurprisingly I ended up spending quite a bit of cash in here although not on what I had expected. I thought I'd come away with some antique religious pieces and maybe some jewelry but I actually bought the two prints above. The first I fell in love with at first sight, it's part of a collection of four paintings in the same style and size on diamond cut wood and is by an artist that I hadn't head of before Jennybird Alcantra. It reminded me of the Rob Ryden pieces I love so much, very feminine and pretty but when you look closer they're a little sinister. I only bought this one of the four piece collection, I would have bought them all if I could have but this was my favourite. It's one of a limited run of 40.
The second print is one I never thought I'd get to own, I've seen it so many times before as it's by one of my all time favourite artists Chris Conn of SekretCity International. I never thought I'd get to own it as this particular print sold out quite some time ago, so you can imagine how excited I was to see it hanging in their store and for sale! Chris' work is so perfect and crisp, the women so beautiful, the concepts so unique and the compositions so striking, he is just phenomenal. I spent just under $300 on these two pieces.
So that's this little lot done, keep your eyes peeled for my Sephora haul post very soon!
