Mid-Week Beauty & Fashion Wishlist.


It's official, I couldn't be more in love with the Alicia Lace dress from French Connection. Sure I never go anywhere lovely enough to wear such a gorgeous dress, but I'd happily just take this out of my wardrobe every day and marvel at how pretty it is. It manages to be chic and sophisticated yet edgy and sexy all at the same time. It's perfect.

I'll give you three guesses as to why it was love at first sight at number 5! Spirit Hoods have been on my radar for a little while now and while I still think they're super expensive, I couldn't help but smile when I saw the Peta Rabbit Spirit Hood on ASOS. Seriously, they've even used my favourite colour on the bunny ears. It's almost like it was made especially for me!

Keeping with the theme, I also spotted this bunny ring as I was browsing the Topshop website earlier. He's so adorable! I always find Topshop jewellery a little pricey but I think I'd happily hand over £7 for this little guy!

Glitter nails are still drawing me in and I think Disco Mix from Models Own is the ultimate glitter nail polish. I know I missed this bandwagon long ago, I'm pretty sure everyone already owns this shade but I'm just catching on! Totally going to wait for the 50% off sale if Models Own reach 100,000 Facebook fans!

It seems we're having a bit of an Indian Summer again this year but although the sun is still firmly shining, my sights are firmly set on Autumn/Winter fashion. I'm crossing my fingers for some snow this year & if that happens I'll need a good pair of wellies. These Bird Print wellies from Joules are adorable yet practical, usually I just find myself going for pretty things so it's always a bonus when they're useful as well!

Finally, as always, I have a few make up lusts. Dior Amber Diamond is my ultimate make up lust, to be honest I'd love Rose Diamond as well but at £30 a pop they're not exactly cheap. There's no denying they're beautiful though and I do love a good highlight! Benefit They're Real mascara keeps catching my eye but the price tag always seems to put me off. I see a lot of mixed reviews, some people absolutely adore it and others don't rate it at all. I'm looking for a mascara that will give me beautiful long eyelashes with a tonne of volume too but I'm not really sure where to start looking - there are so many to choose from! Topshop always seem to have a make up product that looks beautiful and makes me want to buy it at the moment and this time it's the Break Of Day blush/bronzer. I'm a sucker for products that look pretty for a start and I think a pinky-bronze cheek for the start of Autumn would look super lovely!

What's on your current wish list?
xoxo


P.S. I'm a little behind on replying to comments but I'll get caught up soon, I promise!
