This week I went on a little shopping trip to Milano and ended up picking up a few little treats at & Other Stories. If you haven’t been to any of their stores yet you should, the space is beautiful minimalistic and their products and clothing are always presented in a creative and lovely way.

The store in Milano Corso Vittorio Emanuele 1 near the Duomo is quite large, in fact it has four floors dedicated to everything from clothing, accessories, beauty products & shoes. It is heaven for anyone who is into Scandinavian minimal style & straight lines. It was my first time purchasing something for myself other than the odd gift, so I decided to try a couple of small items, and here is what I got;

✖️ The hand cream comes in a cute tube that looks a bit like one you would get paint in, and it was one of the reasons why I got it (what can I say, I’m a sucker for nice packaging design..) It comes in a range of different smells, I ended up choosing the Bourbon Tree which had a soft and pleasant smell. The quality is very nice and it does keep my hands soft for a long time!

✖️ They have a large selection of nail polish and it was quite hard to choose one, but I ended up choosing a brigh and fresh shade called Rick Rack Coral. The nail polish itself is a bit thin so it does need at least two layers, but the colour is great when on and the quality is good.

✖️ I wanted to get a ring, and I have been quite addicted to rose gold & copper lately so when I saw this one I knew straight away it was the one. Five single circles all in different sizes makes for an interesting and cool effect when you put them on your finger, and it is very versatile as you can wear them also on their own or on different fingers. I have a feeling I might wear this ring quite a lot from now on..

Hope you have a lovely weekend!
