A few things I would like...


The Diviners by Libba Bray
There are permanently a lot of books on my wishlist, I'm really looking forward to the summer when I can fit in more books that aren't University related without feeling guilty. Set in 1920s New York, The Diviners sounds like a cracking supernatural mystery and from reviews of Bray's work, she sounds like a fabulously vivid storyteller. This cover is also exceptionally wonderful, I'm not a fan of the one that's currently easily available.

Lily Lolo Mineral Blush in Beach Babe
Described as a matte delicate peach, I think this could be the one shade that my blush collection is missing. I do favour pinks, but now I'm finally over my pink ombre hair I'm finding myself longing for the perfect peach blush. I have a couple that are shimmery, but I think a matte peach would be a little easier to wear and I can always pop on a little highlighter if I want a little bit of a glow too.

Charlotte Tilbury Filmstar Bronze & Glow
An extraordinarily expensive contour and highlight palette that I'll probably never own, but it looks stunning. The classic, vintage-esque packaging is divine and truly covetable, I'd feel ridiculously grown up and sophisticated whipping this out of my bag to use the mirror to touch up my make up. I'm actually not convinced I am grown up or sophisticated enough to own this, one I'll probably continue to admire from afar! 

Charlotte Tilbury Lip Lustre in Portobello Girl
Oh my gosh, this colour! It just looks utterly divine. I'm a huge fan of glossy lips. I can't pull off the matte look no matter how many times I try and I just really enjoy the youthful, easy-going look that glossy lip products give. When I'm next in need of a little make up pick-me-up I have a feeling this might be the thing I choose!

Jelly Shoes
I'm one hundred percent sure that I'm too old for jelly shoes and they would probably rub my feet like there's no tomorrow, but a little part of me will always think they're ridiculously cute. I also have a lot of fond memories of running into the sea in my jellies when I was a little'un. 

Lily Lolo Lipstick in Parisian Pink
Lipsticks are one of the few Lily Lolo products I haven't tried before and it's safe to say I'm quite intrigued. Parisian pink looks like a beautiful, easy to wear shade and the promise of a creamy formula has me almost hitting the check out button. Maybe I'll allow myself a sneaky purchase after I've been through my lip drawers and thrown out the ones that are nearing their use-by date.

Bomb Cosmetics Appley Ever After Candle
Their candles always look so enticing. Well, the whole range looks practically edible to be honest. The approach of spring calls for lots more fruity scents and a crisp apple with touches of melon and pineapple sounds like a pretty good one to start with! 

Death Cab for Cutie Transatlanticism vinyl
This album reminds me of my college days and it's one I'd love to add to my little record collection. Yep, even though I still don't have a record player. 

Is there anything currently on your wish list?

  2. I saw that there are going to be some really cute peach jelly shoes in Primark for around £4 or something crazy! Mine rub a little, but I thought they might look really lovely with some frilly socks or something :) xxx

  3. That candle sounds gorgeous! And as for the jelly shoes..I think, at 28, I am also too old for them. But a teeny part of me wants some! I loved running into the sea in my pink ones when I was little! xx

  5. Transatlanticism is so nostalgic, reminds me of a time when The OC dominated pop culture. Season 1 of that show is some of the best TV I've ever watched. I've been eyeing that Charlotte Tilbury contour palette since before her site even launched, but the price is criminal :p

  8. The Diviners sounds like something I'd love! But like you I'm trying to balance recreational reading with Uni life, and unfortunately sifting through Renaissance travel literature is taking precedent unfortunately. Ugh I'd love to wear jelly shoes this summer! Apparently they do rub like a bitch but I imagine a pair of cute frilled ankle socks would do the trick... at least until you got to the water.

  21. We're never too old for jelly shoes! I only have a black pair so I still need a silver glittery pair like these. I was looking at Vinyls in a music shop yesterday, even though I don't have a record player either haha!

  22. I have both a record player and that album on vinyl! It is such a beautiful album, like you it's one that reminds me of my college days and is just one of those albums that holds a ton of memories. (I'm wondering if we are about the same age?). I love your inclusion of your wish list books also Jennie, I read a lot but I am rubbish at researching books I want to read next. I tend to just plump for something random in the library so I'm the opposite of you I guess, I think if I did more research into what I wanted to read it'd be a good thing though! XX

  23. You're never too old for jellies! I have a pair and I wear them to absolute death <3 Transatlanticism is my absolute favourite Death Cab album, it has all three of my fav songs on it and it makes me tear up with nostalgia a little every time I hear it :)
