Just a little wishlist for Spring/ Summer

Oh it's fun to dream, right? After my big shopping spree the other week I am supposed to be on a spending ban. It's hard, really hard especially with all these beautiful colours that are emerging in Spring/ Summer collections. 

First off is the Narsissist Blush Palette (£35). It's currently available to pre-order and sat in my Space NK basket. Now, I don't own any Nars blushers so I can justify buying this. It has both Orgasm and Laguna with the addition of a limited edition highlighter. For the price, I think it's a bargain and will hopefully soon be in my collection!

This mint green coat from New Look (£54.99) is divine.  I love pastel colours but I don't really suit them so close to my skin. My answer therefore is to buy in to this seasons trend through a coat, to which I can team it with colours that suit me a little better. Do I need another coat? No. Do I love this Mohair-ish, oversized design? Yes.

I definitely do not need another pair of boots. I have so many pairs that I rarely wear, but I do not own any riding boot styled ones (I really can justify my way to purchasing anything). These Kurt Geiger Victory boots (£180) are simple, timeless and elegant. I just need them to come in to the sale!

How cute is the embossed design on this Dior (£30.50) blusher? I don't think I could ever actually use it, but I love it so soo much! 

Dior have won my heart again with this palette (£59.00). The exterior is pretty enough to frame and the colours featured inside are equally gorgeous. Again, I would never use the pastel colours as they're not for me but I can dream of spending so much money on something I'll never use...

Now I know these eyelash curlers (Shu Uemura £20) have taken the beauty world by storm but I really don't see how they differ from the ones you get for a couple of pounds. The mechanisms do not change, the pads all look pretty similar and the curvature of the top (don't know what to call that part) is equally identical. This being said, I'd like to own a pair just to see what the price difference equates to in terms of curling power.

I think a Tom Ford lipstick (£36) is on every beauty bloggers wish list. I'd chose the shade Cherry Lush because if I were to spend that much on a lipstick, I'd want it to make an impact!

Lastly, this Bobbi Brown Brightening finishing powder in porcelain pearl (£40). How friggin gorgeous is this? I don't really care if it works or not, it looks fabulous and I'm so curious as to try it out!

So there you have it. A rummage into my mind of the palettes and shades I dream of owning at some point this year. My wishlists will only continue to grow and my purse will continue to shrink. I think it's time I give up this uni malarkey and get a proper job!


  1. That's an awesome wishlist, love the look of that Bobbi Brown powder :) x

    1. So do I! I just can't make myself spend that much money on a powder, especially since I've now tried the new Urban Decay loose powder, which is incredible! x
