Buying Guide: All That Glitters

So in my last post, I talked about being drawn to the simple glamour of white and gold. In my travels, I have actually picked up a few bits and pieces to satiate my need for this clean and sparkly palette - a gold and white headset to listen to tunes while I work (currently on sale!), a gold leaf and lacquer tray to hold cosmetics in my dressing room, a phone handle that plugs into your mobile to chat comfortably and a set of white pencils with gold writing that I hope will look rather smart in my future office (yep, I'm already starting to buy stuff to go in the office I don't even have yet.. but when I got an itch, I gotta scratch.)

I do so many buying guides for AO at Home and decided that it's about time I start doing them on Swoon Worthy a little bit as well - sharing some of the items that I've bought and loved and that I think you might too! The pencils, tray, phone and headset I already have but the rest are items on my 'someday' list...  I'm at the point of obsession with the Viking Lamp from Wolf & Badger - unless there's a lottery win in my future, I doubt I'll ever spring for it (it's quite pricey) but goodness, it's stunning.

Any favourites?  Do let me know and happy shopping!

Don't miss a thing!


  1. I do like this trend far more than I thought I would and do and the tray (though the round version) already glams up my home a little. That IKEA lamp is perfect for my bedroom - will have to go on a trip there I think ;-) Fabulous guide, here's a shiny gold star for you ;-) xo

  2. ah love everything gold and your picks are amazing! that Viking lamp is so so fun!

  3. Love the gold headset- I imagine it would make all of my future telephone conversations so much more glamorous and sophisticated. Well maybe if I wasn't going on about how much I "can't believe what Spencer just did in Made In Chelsea!"... Xxx

  4. I have that light from IKEA and pet it each and every day. And those headphones are just simply to die for my dear!

  5. White and gold has a fresh, yet snazzy, look. The viking lamp is awesome, as are the agate platters.
