Currently Coveting: Warm Winter Coat, & Other Unnecessary Pretties!

Good morning! It's no secret I'm not the biggest fan of Monday morning's, especially when they're as gloomy as it is today, but I have so much to get done today I'm already on my second coffee and trying desperately to wake myself up! And what better way to get into a good mood, than a bit of online window shopping!

1. Andrea Garland 20's Seaside Girl Lip Balm.
Sometimes packaging really gets me. Goodness knows I don't need another lip balm but when it comes in a sweet tin that's as pretty as this one is, I almost can't help but be very tempted! In fact, I could quite happily own every single one of the pretty things in Andrea Garland's collection, they're all lovely!

2. Topshop Lipstick in Beehive. 
I like to browse the Topshop make up range quite often, usually I'm very restrained because even though I would love to own every one of their lipsticks, I'm not as into wearing lipstick as I once was. Every so often one in particular catches my eye, this time it's Beehive, which looks like a lovely almost muted, soft pink. It's my kind of colour for sure!

3. Gone Girl by Gillian Flynn. 
Ever since I signed up to GoodReads I've found myself wanting to read anything and everything! One day I would love to have a room in my home I can dedicate to being a mini library, with everything alphabetised on pretty shelves. Until that day I'm working on building up a collection of books, if I read them and really don't like them I take them to a local charity shop, but generally I like most books! I've read a few pretty amazing reviews of Gone Girl by Gillian Flynn, so it's currently on my 'I must read this list'!

4. Zara Wrap Around Overcoat.
A new, warm winter coat is something I would love this year, I seem to be quite picky though, which is strange because when I really think about it my only must-have's are that it's grey and has a tie at the waist - but I'm still not sure I've found the one just yet. I love this Zara beauty but it's a bit too pricey for me so I'm going to be on the lookout for something fairly similar but not as expensive. I might have to pop to Primark soon, they never usually let me down when it comes to coats!

5. Black Milk Weasley Weather Bottle top.
Black Milk clothes aren't really my style and I don't really have the figure to be able to pull most of their pieces off well BUT their recent Harry Potter collection is pretty amazing! If I had legs for days and a figure to flaunt, you bet I would be snapping up some of those Marauders Map leggings but I think my favourite piece is this tee, I'm a Weasley at heart!

6. Gifts & Pieces Bunny Ornament.
Gifts & Pieces is one of my favourite shops to browse for cute homeware things at the moment because everything is completely adorable! Of course I gravitated straight for the bunny things but there's so much more to choose from too! Their beautiful shop isn't that far away from me either, so I think I'll have to pop in one day very soon!

What's on your wish list at the moment?
xoxo

    The lipstick looks like a beautiful neutral yet warm shade which is perfect when you want something simple or to team up with smokey eyes.

  4. I loveee number 5! I ordered one of the leggings of the HP collection and was so tempted to order that one as well. But well they are a bit pricey. Gone Girl is supposed to be really good as well.

  31. Gone Girl is AMAZING! I don't even like mystery, but this book absolutely blew my mind. It's definitely worth all of the hype it has been getting. Also, I know exactly what you mean about packaging getting you - I myself occasionally buy beauty products just because they look pretty haha
