I think I might be ill. It took me so long to think of these 10 things that are on my wishlist at the moment. My wishlists tend to consist of A)Things I know I am never going to own (I can dream, can't I?) followed by B) the more realistic and C) the dreaded essentials. Ugh. Thankfully I'm going to spare you the boring bits and let you in on what I've been hankering for lately.

1. Just a smidge late on the bandwagon with these Clarins lip perfectors. But there is something so satisfying about the packaging. They're pastel and they're sleek and shiny and thin and I just really want one OKAY?!  But £17? For real, Clarins?
2. I already have a silly amount of acrylic storage and I don't need a 5 drawer tower but my makeup is overflowing and its very inconvenient. A girl needs her storage.
3.  This Cheap Monday purse is my favourite item on my wishlist. I get bored of purses really quickly but I loved this one as soon as I saw it. Its so simple yet interesting because of the colour and fabric. and it's unlike other purses you'd normally see on the high street. 
4. I keep seeing this shirt in every H&M I go in and it looks much nicer in real life I promise. Its made of chiffon so its quite sheer and floaty. It's also cropped so it hangs nicely and I can imagine it being really comfortable. It's also not ridiculously priced, thank you H&M.
5. Moving on to the second lip product on my wishlist and its the Nuxe Rêve de Miel Honey Lip Balm. I know its not a new thing on the beauty blogger circuit but I have perpetually dry lips and I like to switch up my lip balms so my lips don't get too used to a certain formula. I was really intrigued by this because of the number of people who have raved about it so hopefully I'll be able to try it some time in the near future.
6. I want real silver midi rings. I know the rings I linked aren't real silver, they were just there to represent my need. I have such a number of midi rings but they tarnish after one wear and then I don't like to wear them again. But this brings me to another problem and my dilemma is two fold. Number 1: I want them to be cheap which probably isn't possible because its real silver. Number 2: I don't know what size the top of my fingers are so I wouldn't know what size to order. #beautybloggerproblems.
7. Oh Clinique, you had me at 'Stay Matte'. This foundation already ticks all my boxes. Oil free? Brill!
Matte? Yes please! Now the only question is... does it work? Oh well, I guess I'll just have to buy it and find out. 
8. This skirt is representative of my need for more clothes for my bottom half. I am very much a black skirt kinda girl and its getting kind of boring. I need to break out of my black skirt rut and try something new, hence the patterned skirt. I like this one because the pattern is not too over the top or in your face. Its exactly the kind of thing I'm looking for. Sadly, its out of stock in my size. Curse you,!
9. We've reached my resident 'thing I know I'm never going to own'. The Vagabond Dioon Shoe. These shoes are everything I could ever wish for in a shoe. They're black canvas so perfect for everyday wear. They have a 6cm chunky heel so they give me the height I love whilst the platform makes it feel as though you're not wearing heels. They also stop below the ankle which means they'll be no attack of the cankle. It's a win win win win situation. However there is one loss. The price. I can't pay £65 no matter how deep my love. 
10. Lastly is these cute little (big) mittens from Boohoo. I've been stalking these for so long but have never bought them. Every time I walk out the house and I'm cold I think about these mittens. They're completely covered in fur so they must be super warm. One day, Boohoo faux fur mittens, one day. 

Thank you for taking a look at this post! If you have any suggestions for me be it silver midi rings or ideas for my bottom half woes please let me know in the comments! 
Lots of love,


  1. I'm still obsessed with the tartan trend but like you, always seem to wear black skirts. I'm definitely going to purchase a tartan skirt soon :) and the little storage unit is so cool, just checked out the website and they have some amazing storage ideas on there so thank you for introducing me to it :) xxx

    1. I'm glad someone does the same as me! They're just so easy to throw on and they go with almost everything. Aw no problem, I'm happy I could be of some use :) Thanks so much for your comment xxx
