Birthday Wishlist

Thursday, 23 January 2014



Not that I'm counting but it's my birthday in eight days. You'd think with it being so close to Christmas I'd be left wondering what the hell to ask for. Ohhhh no. Just browsing the internet and reading blog posts has left me with a ton of ideas of what I'd like. I've narrowed it down (believe me, the list was long) and put together a little birthday lust list. 

I'm obsessed with ankle boots this season and feel I need this heeled but comfy pair to add to my collection. I like the tread at the bottom of these and at £27.99 you can't go wrong. Next up is the LOreal Paris Miss Manga Mascara which of course I don't need, but nonetheless want to try. It's a new release and I've heard good things on Twitter so I'd quite like to give it a whirl. 

Need I say any more about the POREfessional sitting on my lust list. Despite having wanted it for a long time, as a student it's hard to part with £24.50. A lot of people swear by it so I think I need to see for myself. Real Techniques are my favourite brushes and after receiving the original Naked Palette for Christmas, I want the Real Techniques Starter Set so I can get to work. 

VDM loves a Nars Velvet Matte Lip Pencil and I fancy getting my hands on Mysterious Red or Red Square. A lady in Boots tried the Bumble & Bumble Thickening Creme Contour in my hair and it gave the ends a nice bit of texture. I don't like the poker straight look so I think this would make a nice addition to my hair care collection.

My sister got Marc Jacobs Honey for Christmas and it smells amazing, I want some for myself. These Topshop varnishes in Song and Dance and Drink Pink are cute and would make a welcome addition on my nail varnish shelf. There was bound to be something Soap and Glory on here so I've chosen the Sugar Crush Body Buttercream which smells uhhhh-mazing.

I'm itching for some Muji storgae, in particular the Two Drawers Acrylic Box (Wide) so I can start organising my make up into different sections. I saw this Grey Collarless Contrast Trim Cropped Blazer on the New Look website and it caught my eye. It's very smart casual and would look nice with a black cami, black skinny jeans and black ankle boots.

Now for the two slightly more expensive items on my lust list. How beautiful are these Black Peep Toe Platform Sandals from River Island? I love the ankle strap and chunky heel and I'm a little bit in love. To round things up I've had my eye on this Pandora Feather Ring since before Christmas. Look at the sparkles! I'm not big on jewellery but I think this would look super pretty.

If I keep my fingers crossed maybe I'll be lucky and get some of these goodies. What's on your lust list at the moment?
