Glass Gems





I've been meaning to make this post for probably close to a month now, and finally am! I've been really interested/obsessed with perfume bottles of all types, shapes, sizes. Although I am just started my perfume collection with Chance by Chanel, I'm really excited to get more bottles and make my dresser look gorgeous with all the different bottles and tops for them! I've been trying to find some at antique stores but no luck so far, hopefully soon though!

this embroidery by ashley of sleepyfawn has made me fall in love with that bottle, it's my next purchase!

these pictures have made me want to dress as girly as possible, I've been wearing lots of white, creams, sparkles, ribbons in my hair and etc. I'm loving it.

I wanted to answer some questions I've been getting lately;
1. My mom got a tattoo of a palm tree on her ankle, she used to live in Florida and still loves it there
2. My tattoo is of a polaroid picture outline, it's plain and simple with nothing inside and that's the way I like it!
2. My hair color is red, but you've been seeing the faded grown in roots red, which isn't that bad but it is usually really red, I'm going to miss it
3. The boots/heels from my last post I'm wearing are from Forever 21 and they have them in black too!

outfit post tomorrow I promise! I'm getting my hair dyed tomorrow back to my natural color which is basically black, I'm excited to finally not have to worry about roots and all the other things that come with getting your hair dyed and maintaing it! You'll see pictures tomorrow!
lovelove, M.

rebecca said...

i love perfume bottles! i honestly think the bottle is more important than the smell but i think daisy is the one perfume that has a gorgeous bottle and a gorgeous scent.
im actually thinking of dyeing my hair red. my natural colour is a very deep black so i think it would look good but i might do it as highlights so that its more subtle anyway i love your blog x

i have a little bottle collection, some perfume bottles and some bubble bath bottles. i love the way the light catches them, and just how simple and pretty they are.

my tattoo actually looks a lot like yours, but its just a frame on my back. my brother has the same one, in the same spot you have yours. i keep thinking its the same tattoo when i see your banner!

thanks for sharing these lovely photos!

Pretty pretty! I was at an antique store a couple of weeks ago and I adored looking at all the old glass bottles from the 1920s with the neat labels (some with things still in them!). I would love to have a spare room with a huge window pane one day so I could get a plethora of them in different colours and line them up!
