Summer Brights Wish List!

Posted on July 24, 2015

summer brights wish list

Hi Guys!

At the moment, I just can’t get enough of anything that’s bright, cute and kitsch. If it falls under the category of neon or novelty, I WANT IT. I need it in my life! I really feel like I’m clinging onto the summer with all my might – the weather is still hot and muggy, but unfortunately the sun seems to have ‘done one’ of late. And though I’ve been trying to be good when it comes to spending, I have actually been buying a few things recently… some beauty bits from some blog sales (all will be revealed soon) and some awesome new stationery from the US, which definitely falls under the cute and kitsch category! Hopefully my delivery will arrive soon so I can show you what I bought (and they’re all completely necessary, important things of course)

Is it just me or does anyone else spend a lot of time, and I mean A LOT, window shopping online, filling your virtual baskets with hundreds and sometimes thousands of pounds of gorgeous goodies, just to take things out of said bag one by one to try to make it affordable? Then realising you shouldn’t really be buying anything anyway, and you should really be doing the washing up / hoovering / dusting / insert relevant chore, rather than browsing thing you can’t afford?

Yeah I spend a lot of time doing that, hence my latest wish list! I’ve included some fantastic bargains, as well as a couple of more expensive items – well it is a ‘wish list’ after all! I hope you like!

  • Kitty High Top Sneakers from ShopJeen
  • Rib Cage Cuff 70mm from Cooee
  • Chiara Ferragni Glitter Pop ‘n Dog Slip-On Sneaker from Nasty Gal
  • Skinnydip Pineapple Juice Across Body Bag from ASOS
  • Cropped Stretch Cotton Trousers from Esprit
  • Geo Transparent Strap Watch from ASOS
  • Blue Tropical Print Ruch Side Mini Skirt from New Look
  • IRO Ashville Jacket in Coral from Trilogy Stores
  • Only Child Kaleido Crystal Ring from ASOS
  • Far Out Tie Dye Halter Top from ShopJeen

If you can recommend any other stores for similar goodies that I might like, please do leave me a comment and let me know!

A Little Home Wish List…

Posted on March 4, 2015

Hi Guys!

So now I’ve really nearly finished my new office – I’ve got the furniture, I’ve got everything pretty much organised, I just need to tidy up and add a few finishing touches to the decor. This has got me thinking about the rest of my house, and now I’ve got the decorating, re-vamping and updating bug! I keep looking online for inspiration, thinking about what I want to change, upgrade and improve, and as I’ve been making my mental notes I’ve noticed everything has fallen into two categories: practical – for those necessary items that you need but aren’t much to look at, and pretty – for the decorative, not actually necessary things.

So I’ve put together a little wish list, a kind of if I won the lottery type thing, of practical and pretty things I’d really love to have in my home…

home wish list_edited-1

Ok so let’s start with the kitchen, there are SO many problems with the kitchen! The dishwasher has broken, so we’re now using it for storage, yes our house is so small we’re actually using the dishwasher to keep things in. Storage is a very real issue. So a new dishwasher would be nice, and the washing machine is also on it’s last legs, so a shiny new Panasonic washing machine would be lovely – preferably one that’s a dryer too? Because of course, we have no space or a dryer, gah.

I’d like a nice storage cabinet to go in the corner of the room – maybe the Hemnes Cabinet from Ikea, to stop the kitchen table being a dumping ground for junk. The kitchen really stresses me out so I’ll move on to the living room now… My fancy Habitat sofa cushions are knackered from people sleeping on the sofa, so I’d really like some nice new ones, I’m in love with this Cat Face Cushion and Yeah Yeah Yeah Cushion from Urban Outfitters, and while I was checking out their site I also noticed this awesome Zig Zag Rug which would be perfect in the living room, as my current rug is covered in marks. Oh and our lovely white Coffee Table has chip marks all around the edges from Fred pulling himself up and chewing it as a baby, so I’d quite like a new one of them too!

Going upstairs I’d really love some pictures on the walls, my problem is I can’t commit to where to put things, because once something is up, you then have to plan everything else around it, so basically that’s why I haven’t got any pictures up. Which reminds me, I still haven’t had our wedding photos printed – oops! If you know me you’ll know that Rockett St George is one of my favourite homewares stores, and I can’t get over these Horizon and Palm Trees art prints – one day they will be mine! I’m also kind of lacking in ceiling lampshades… there’s only two of them in the whole house because I just didn’t get round to finding any more I liked. I’m rather partial to IKEA Lampshade though and this Fillsta one has caught my eye recently. For our bedroom, I can’t get enough of bright and loud prints, and this Vance Duvet set jumped out at me, it’s really expensive but I think I NEED it! And lastly I’d really like a book case for Fred’s room, as his books are just in a massive pile in the living room at the moment, this Kidikraft Bookshelf would be perfect for him.

Do you create lust lists like I do? And spend your time window shopping and fantasising about your dream home!? I hope you enjoyed my post 🙂 xxx

Christmas Gift Guide | Beauty Gadgets!

Posted on December 12, 2014

beauty-gadgets

Hi Guys!

Today’s gift guide is all about beauty gadgets! I’m a complete sucker for gadgets and gizmos, and what better gift to give (and, erm ask for maybe?) than some fantastic beauty gadgets! I’m covering hair, skincare and have even thrown in an amazing electric toothbrush that’s currently half price, so I hope you’ll find something you like 🙂

1. THX Total Hair Experts Spiralicious Bubble Wand exclusively at Tesco, £25 – This crazy looking hair wand is everything you need to create a variety of hair looks! The bubble design allows you to choose from tousled waves by wrapping hair around the bubbles, or defined spirals by wrapping hair in the grooves between the bubbles. It has a temperature setting of 210 degrees and a ceramic-coated barrel, so you can create beautiful curls while protecting your hair from heat-damage, and the extra-long length of the wand means it even works on longer hair. Thumbs up all round for this nifty product!

2. Foreo Luna Mini from Lookfantastic, £99. – The Luna Mini is one of the latest gadgets on the skincare scene. You use this product for only one minute morning and night to drive away blemish-causing impurities. The Luna Mini promises to leave the skin looking clearer, brighter and healthier in just 3 days! It gives up to 8000 pulsations per minute to gently remove dead skin cells, as well as unclogging pores of 99.5% of dirt and oil, and 98.5% of makeup residue. The non porous silicone brush is super hygienic too as it resists bacteria buildup. The Luna Mini’s smooth, soft silicone touch-points glide across the skin for deep, effective facial-cleansing that’s actually gentle enough to use every day. Its travel-friendly design is also fully waterproof, lasts up to 300 uses per full charge and requires no replacement brushes. What more could a girl want!?

3. Magnitone Lucid Facial Brush from Lookfantastic, £49 – I’ve been using my Lucid for quite a while now with no complaints whatsoever. I’ve included this as an alternative the the Luna above, as they both effectively do the same thing. It just depends on your budget and if you’d prefer silicone or a brush head. The Magnitone Lucid has two cleansing modes for deep cleaning and also for sensitive skin, it gives 10000 pulsations per minute and is completely waterproof so you can use it whilst in the bath or shower without worrying!

4. ghd V Coral Styler from Lookfantastic, £109 – If anyone mentions hair straighteners, the first brand most people will think of is ghd. They’re renowned for their superior quality electrical hair products, and the Coral Styler is up there with the best of them. Helping you to create hair styles you’ll love, the ghd V Coral Styler has been designed with vibrant hues and graduated colours to give you an exotic styler that allows you to create flawless looks. The straightening irons have been designed with contrast black plates that contain ceramic heat technology to enhance shine and versatility. Ideal for straightening, curling, or adding waves and flicks, the V Coral Styler has a rounded barrel to help you to create endless styles with ease. The Styler also has a professional length cord for flexible styling, an automatic sleep mode after 30 minutes and a coordinated heat resistant mat, so you can style your hair to perfection.

5. Panasonic EW-DE92 Toothbrush from Boots, on sale at £99.99 until January 7th. Electric toothbrushes often tend to be on the expensive side so people may not necessarily be keen to run out and buy one, they are a fantastic investment though so this Panasonic toothbrush (which is currently half price) really would make an excellent Christmas gift! The new EW-DE92 model toothbrush features Ionic technology that takes care of stains and plaque, it also has a triple-edged brush and sonic vibration of 31,000 brush strokes a minute! You also get a load of extras in the box including point brush and gum massager attachments and a handy tongue cleaner. The EW-DE92 toothbrush also has four selectable brushing modes and a soft start function. This toothbrush really is the bees knees of dental hygiene, make sure you grab one while they’re on offer!

Watch Lust List!

Posted on August 15, 2014

watch wish list

Hi Guys!

I have a major thing for jewellery, but certain watches are really grabbing my eye at the moment! I don’t really see watches as functional items as I’m so used to looking at my phone to check the time, but they can be perfect accessories! I’ve recently discovered Olivia Burton, she creates such gorgeous and pretty woodland inspired watched, and Kate Spade (who makes some stunning accessories) has some fab fun watches on the ASOS site. I thought I’d put a little wish list together so you can see my top picks! xxx

rose-gold-wish-list Hi Guys! I thought I’d put together a little wish list today, to show you just a few of the gorgeous things I’ve been lusting after lately.

And don’t even get me started on Rebecca Minkoff! I have a Rebecca Minkoff Mac bag and I just can’t get enough of this white Mini Mac with rose gold hardwear, arrrgh there are so many gorgeous things! Are you a rose gold fan? I’d love to hear if you like my wish list! xxx Rose Gold Love Ring  |  Deborah Lipmann Glamorous Life Nail Polish  |  Fossil Georgia Mint Watch  |  Ted Baker Caranna Bag  |  Edblad Bergen Triangle Rose Gold Necklace  |  Zoeva Rose Gold Luxury Brush Set  |  Rebecca Minkoff Mini Mac  |  Badgley Mischka Gelsey Heels  |  Astley Clarke Star Ring  |  Charlotte Tilbury Gift Box
