A few things I'm lusting over...

Labyrinth Sweater // Gryffindor Cardigan // MAC Warm Soul blush // YSL Glossy Stain number 17 // Alice in Wonderland Clutch // Barnes & Noble Grimm's Complete Fairy Tales // Barnes & Noble Alice's Adventures in Wonderland
The Barnes & Noble leather bound collection has completely stolen my heart. The editions are all so incredibly beautiful and if money were no object I would very much like to own the entire collection. With so many classic and much loved fairy tales hidden within, this edition of Grimm's Fairy Tales would be a very welcome and treasured addition to my bookshelf. The pretty pink cover of Alice's Adventures in Wonderland & Other Stories is proving to be very difficult to resist as well!

Etsy is full of the most incredible hand made treasures and even though I never carry clutches, I'm thinking about making an exception for this incredibly sweet Alice's Adventures in Wonderland book clutch! Well, actually, I'm thinking about making an exception for anything in Bookarelli's shop...

A couple of make up items I find myself looking at every so often are Warm Soul Mineralize blush by MAC that I've seen Coco from The Beauty Milk mention a few times recently. It looks really beautiful on her and I like how easy to wear it seems to be. The YSL Glossy Stain in number 17 looks like a really beautiful pink colour and I definitely want to try one of these very soon!

Lastly it would be a sailorjennie wishlist without a couple of knitwear items, I'm a sucker for cosy looking jumpers and literary inspired cardigans. It's been a really long time since I last watched Labyrinth, but it was one of my favourites when I was a teenager and this Labyrinth Sweater over on Truffle Shuffle is amazing. They really do have some of the best pieces, I'll have to make an order soon! I keep looking at this sweet Gryffindor House Cardigan and I so want to own one but I'm not sure if I'd actually wear it. It's lovely though!

Are you lusting over anything at the moment? 

Love, Jennie
xoxo

  25. Just bought a copy of Grimm's Fairytales, was looking at this lovely leather bound copy and like you said if money was no object...

    But unfortunately it was, so I got a second hand copy in paperback!! But it's about what's inside right?

  34. Oh the Gryffindor cardigan, I was lusting over those at the studio tour but they are so expensive and like you say, would I actually wear it enough to get my moneys worth? Would make great lounge wear though! I too have been lusting after the YSL Glossy Stains, I have saved up loads of Boots points so I am considering splashing out on one as a treat (I just found out I won't be being made redundant and I got a promotion!) but my main worry is that I might not get on with the formula, the colours are beautiful but I have a funny feeling I might find it a bit weird to wear. If you buy one definitely do a review! xx
