Birthday Wish List!

The older I get the harder it is for me to answer 'So, what would you like for your birthday?' These days a pretty card is more than enough, it's nice to know that someone is thinking about you and I'd much prefer them to spend the money on themselves! Naturally that doesn't stop me making a little fantasy wish list, though! There's something very therapeutic about making these, it's almost like buying them!
1. Love Moschino is a brand I find myself lusting over on ASOS quite a lot, especially because quite often their bags aren't leather. This sweet little owl shoulder bag is completely adorable and reminds me a little of the ever so beautiful Chanel Wallet on Chain bags. I do wish the chain was longer on this one, but I think it would be quite easy to make a longer one to put on and it would make a lovely clutch with no chain at all. Perfect for those easy days where I don't want to cart around a huge bag!

2. French Connection spring dresses get me every year, the prints are always beautiful and the cuts are always so flattering. I've seen so many gorgeous dresses on the high street recently but they're all SO short. This French Connection Spring Bloom Shirt dress is just perfect, it has a fairly hefty price tag, but it's super pretty!

3. After trying and loving the L'Oreal GlamShine Stain Splashes, I've been wanting to try the real deal! There are so many beautiful shades within the YSL Glossy Stain range but this one, rose pastelle, has particularly caught my eye because it looks so wearable.

4. With summer fast approaching, hopefully, I've been looking for a light base to use during the warm weather. My super dry skin usually means most bases don't apply smoothly but after reading lots of reviews I think the Bobbi Brown Tinted Moisturising Balm looks perfect & I think one of the lightest shades will match me perfectly which is an added bonus!

5. Eeeee! An Alice in Wonderland inspired Diana Mini Camera - SO cute!

6. I have an entire draw of lip products that I barely touch because at the moment I'm all about the sheer stains and light balms, so although I definitely don't need to add to my lip product collection, I think these Clarins Instant Smooth Crystal Lip Balms look beautiful! It looks like they give a good amount of colour and Clarins have really been impressing me as a brand recently!

7. Spring & Summer make up is all about the healthy glow and I actually don't own a powder highlighter, which I feel the need to correct. Topshop Sunbeam Highlighter is one I've heard nothing but good things about and I think the warm tone will look stunning in the sunshine!

8. Now I know these are supposed to be for children & I will be turning 24 and not 4 on my birthday, but I don't care. I love bunnies & I love ice lollies so this sweet little Woodland Bunnies Lolly Maker from DotComGiftShop is perfect!

9. There are always a couple of Pandora charms I find myself lusting over and at the moment, this Silver Teddy Bear is at the top of my list!

10. Bunny shoes! Need I say more?!

What's on your wish list at the moment?

  7. great list!! i've never heard of that clarins balm but i totally want to try it, i love their instant lip perfecter!
    and that dress is adorable, you should definitely get that as a birthday gift for yourself hehe
    do let us know what you think if you get the bobbi brown tinted moisturizing balm - i've heard a lot of good things about it but am on the fence since it's marketed towards dry skin, and i have more combination skin

    an early happy birthday to you!! :)

  14. That bag is beautiful! What a gorgeous colour. I love the bunny shoes too - you should definitely get them/ask for them :) I also think the camera is amazing, obviously :)
    I agree, it's so much harder to think of things you'd like for your birthdays as you get older...even though there are things I'm constantly lusting after! Funny isn't it?
