#mymusthaves

I recently showcased a handful (and I mean a HANDFUL as these are only a tiny amount of my favourite items and products) of my 'must have' fashion and beauty items on Instagram in collaboration with Vaseline. For those of you who don't follow me on there, I thought I'd share them with you on here and give a bit more of an insight into why they're some of my 'must have' items.


Dream Cream Hand and Body Lotion by Lush (buy here)
I have tried my fair share of body lotions and this one has to be one of my favourites alongside the Vanilla Dee-Lite from Lush also. It's moisturising enough for my dry skin without taking forever to absorb, meaning I can slap this glorious cream on minutes before I get dressed. Perfect.

'IT' by Alexa Chung (buy here)
I love Alexa Chung (who doesn't?) and I don't care if this makes me sound 'unintelligent' but I love books with very few words and lots of photographs. Guess what? 'IT' by Alexa Chung, has all three combined. Not only is this book aesthetically lovely, but it gives you an insight into her life and her inspirations. It's a really quick and fun read.

Classy Sheffield Watch* by Daniel Wellington (buy here)
I have never owned a watch in my life because quite frankly it's never been high on my 'to buy' list, but I've always liked the idea of a small, classic women's watch, therefore recently when I was kindly asked if I would like a watch from Daniel Wellington and I saw they sold the exact watch I've always imagined myself having if I was to have one, I couldn't say no. I have been wearing it everyday since it slipped through my letter box.

Lip Therapy by Vaseline (buy here)
I have been using Vaseline since I was a kid and it's one of those items I always have in my bag; I'm pretty sure I have one in every single one of my bags just incase I forget to put a lip balm in my bag that day. Even though I have almost every type, I'd say I favour the rose and aloe vera tins the most.

Flowerbomb Perfume by Viktor & Rolf (buy here)
You know we all have 'a scent', the smell or perfume that people know us by, well Flowerbomb by Viktor & Rolf is mine. I have been using this for years, ever since my mum brought me my first bottle for my eightieth birthday and it's been tradition for her to buy me a new bottle everything christmas/birthday. I'm not very good at describing or understanding perfume but for those of you who are, here's the fragrance notes: Centifolia rose, India osmanthus, catleya orchid, sambac jasmine.

Lipstick in Orange by Bobbi Brown (buy here)
I'm a huge fan of lipsticks, especially red ones and I have every shade and undertone of red imaginable. According to my boyfriend they're all the same colour, but he's a guy, what does he know, right? One of my all time favourite reds is Orange by Bobbi Brown; it's a gorgeous warm red (ignore the name as it's more red than orange), it stays on all day even when eating/drinking and it doesn't become uncomfortable unlike a lot of matte lipsticks.


White High Top Converse (buy here)
As a girl that would never be seen dead in trainers (unless I'm at the gym) my 'trainers' are either Vans or Converse. Out of my three pairs of Converse, my go to pair are my white high tops as they go with so much and are so darn comfortable. Although I don't advise you wear them in the rain, I had to learn that the hard way.

Neon Yellow Purse from Topshop (buy similar)
For years I have only ever gone for brown or black accessories but this year I have become obsessed with colour whether that be on my nails, lips or bags. The other week I upgraded my black spiked purse for this neon one from Topshop and I'm in love, as melodramatic as that sounds.

Let me know what your must have items are by tagging me on Instagram or Twitter (@rhiannonashlee) using #mymusthaves as I'd love to have a noise at them.

My eBay Collections

I have been an avid user of eBay for years whether I'm looking for a bargain or something in particular, I can always count on eBay to come to the rescue, as long as I have the time to scroll through page after page of items. So, when they approached me to be an eBay Influencer, of course I accepted.

eBay have very recently launched eBay Collections, an exciting new tool to enhance your online shopping experience. Influential curators from the world of fashion, lifestyle, electronics and motors have assembled personal collections of things they love on eBay. I have created 12 collections of my own using the same fashion and lifestyle influences you see throughout my blog and if you'd like to have a little look, then they can be viewed here

Out of my own collections, I would have to say my favourite are: My Brown Eyed Girl, Teenage Dirtbag and Oh, Alexa!

My Brown Eyed Girl Collection (view here) • Teenage Dirtbag Collection (view here) • Oh, Alexa! Collection (view here)

A great element to eBay Collections is that if you really like specific users, you can hit the 'follow' button and keep up to date with their collections. Anyone can created their own collection and the idea is that you create them based on a theme e.g. pretty in pink and when you find items suitable for the collection you simply click on 'add to collection' under the 'bid' or 'buy now' buttons and hey presto, you have started your very own collection.

Week in Photos No.76


I have had such a lovely couple of weeks filled with sunshine, scrumious food and a few too many baths (if that's even possible). I slept over for the first time in Douglas' new place which is based onsite at his new job and even though I hate the fact there is no wifi, signal or 3G (let alone 4G), it was surprisingly nice to be in the middle of nowhere surrounded by acres and acres of wood with tiny brown bunnies hoping around all over the place - I'm amazed I haven't stolen any... yet!

date night with douglas • lush haul (watch here) • love this new jumper from topshop (buy here
my view when I woke up • this was so tasty, if I do say so myself • lovely housewarming gift from my grandma
this was as exciting as my friday night got • sex bomb from lush • surprise pancakes from douglas on shrove tuesday

Sweater Weather Tag & OOTN

I was tagged by my friend Marzia, to film the sweater weather tag months ago and I wanted to get it up before we head into spring - some of you are saying it's too late to be doing this video but the way I see it, is that it might not be autumn anymore but it's still sweater weather here in the UK. I also popped in a quick outfit of the day (night) so I hope you enjoy the video either way.
