My Heart Desires – January 2015

Well it’s back to business as usual here on Harmony Blaze now with just 4 or 5 posts a week now that, like most, I’m back in the office full time during the week. This month’s ‘My Heart Desires’ is a bit of a bumper edition with a few items that I’m hoping I might get for my birthday next week… Let’s get started!

First up is the ‘Sleepy Owl Notebook’ from Paperchase, £9.00. I love stationary, especially from Paperchase & this is where I bought my 2015 ‘Cute Owl’ Diary from to organise my blog schedule in. This would go perfectly with this and give all of my notes and ramblings a home!

I am totally crushing on Muji’s ‘Acrylic Storage’ range (£4.95 – £24.95) at the moment and would love some of this in my bathroom to organise my ever expanding makeup collection.

I adore Soap & Glory toiletries and have recently start to try their makeup as well. At the moment I really want to try their ‘Solar Powder’, £11.00. 

After giving my bedroom a NY detox of it’s own I have decided that I really need a full length mirror in their and I love this one from Ikea, £50.00. Aside from being white and that it would blend in with my current furniture wonderfully, the additional storage would come in very handy indeed. 

One of my NY promises to myself was to become fitter, faster and stronger. If you follow any celebrities on Twitter chances are you may have seen them using a Protein World product. I have been looking at ‘The Slender Blend’ which is a low calories protein shake (£30.00) and their Beauty (£64.00) and Weight Loss (£62.00) bundles as well. Based upon my goals at the moment I’d probably go for the Weight Loss one as I’d love to see how well it works.

If you follow the wonderful Lily Pebbles like me, you will have heard about Project Life and another my NY promises was to have more hobbies. I’d love to do a Scrapbook like this this year as I have lots of things planned already that I would really like to document in someway other than Instagram. The files are £19.99 and a small pack of pockets to get started with are £6.99. I would probably get a Core Kit as well which is £29.99 to brighten it up, but you get enough for the year in this so it looks like a good investment.

Now here’s an admission, I don’t have ANY of the Urban Decay Palettes! Shocking I know, I do have one of the Basic ones but not a full sized. So this year I am going to get one. I think I will start with this, the Naked 3 edition £37.00, and work my way back to the original!

Finally, the ‘Daily Greatness Training Journal’, £29.95, is something that I really want to complete in the run up to this years Leeds Half Marathon (this is my attempt to be faster than last year). It has motivational captions, weekly check-in’s to chart your progress and gives you the opportunity to note things that you grateful for and your daily intentions and achievements all in one place.

What is your heart desiring this month? Let me know, I’d love to hear from you.
