Want: How cute is this camera bag from Accessorize? It won’t hold an actual camera, mind
Need: I love this ‘get shit done‘ cup from Etsy. I could do with the reminder sometimes. I also love the ‘fuck housework‘ and ‘practically perfect in every way‘ mugs
Wear: I’m in love with this Radley wristlet!
