Monday Lust List 005.

1. I think I'm hooked on Stella McCartney fragrances. There's something about them that feels so grown up and luxurious that I would love to own every single one. Top of my perfume lust list at the moment is Stella Nude. Sophisticated & a little bit sexy - the perfect combination and it's pretty cheap online at Debenhams right now!

2. My nails need some serious help, after years of nail biting I fear that they've given up on me a bit! I need a decent base coat or treatment or something that doesn't make polish peel off & will actually do something to help the condition of my nails. I wonder if this one from Essie is any good?

3. I need this Hero & Cape tee in my wardrobe! Because, well, because it's true - boys do make passes at girls who wear glasses! That and it'd look cute tucked into a skirt with a cardigan thrown over the top. Cute & comfortable - perfect!

4. I love flats, especially simple ones with little bows like these from H&M. They're just so easy to wear and when they're this inexpensive it doesn't matter if they only last one season. These come in an array of different colours but this pretty blue colour is my favourite & would be perfect for the autumn!

5. Ever since I got the blue glitter Barry M paint I've been lusting over the red glitter too! I was in Boots earlier & I completely forgot to look for it! That's what happens when I go shopping with my boyfriend, in Boots or Superdrug a glazed expression falls upon his face and he looks completely bored so I had to hurry up. Boo!

6. I'm not one to splash out on expensive make up brushes but the Blending Brush 2 from Illamasqua looks like it would be a really good investment. It looks similar to the one from MAC that people love to use to blend in their under eye concealer but since I like synthetic brushes this looks like a good option. It sure is pricey though, I wonder if it's worth the money?

Have you tried any of these items before? What did you think of them?
What's on your lust list at the moment?


  1. I love the illamasqua brush.. Did a brief review on it.. It's amazing at blending your conealer.. And is super soft.. I don't like mac's version coz it's a lil scratchy.. This brush is definitely worth it I think =)

  2. What do i always tell you? That i always love everything in your wish/lust list and this one is another awesome one. I love it all! I'll make sure that Niki (hero and cape) puts this link on the h&c blog roll. xxx

  3. I really want some Essie 3 Way Glaze - I love their nail polishes so much, they are brilliant - and I need a new top/ base coat!

  4. I love that tee, so cute! I use Essie on my nails everytime I paint them - I use "Millionails" as a strengthener/basecoat and "Good To Go" as a topcoat - it dries in seconds and lasts a long time!

  5. I've seen that T-Shirt everywhere! I think the blogosphere is trying to tell me something! Lush lust list as always!

  6. in love with the tee! super cute!

    just started my blog recently, have a looksie if you'd like :)

  10. I haven't tried any of these before, but I do think it's super important to have a good blending brush. I use one from Benefit for my concealer, and it's really changed the way my concealer looks.


  11. I've been looking for the perfect rose scented perfume everywhere and I think you may have just found it for me. I haven't had a sniff of the stella nude yet, but after reading reviews I feel like I NEED this!! Must get to Debenhams ASAP :)

    ps. Love your blog!

  12. I really want the Hero and Cape t-shirt too xx

  13. I love the thought of wearing fun t-shirts but I just like a bloke in them :S

  14. the Stella McCartney perfumes are amazing! xx

  15. Those flats are super cute. H&M always has cute stuff.


  16. I've been wanting that Illamasqua brush =( Gosh it's expensive though. I like the Stella perfume (purple bottle) so will need to give this a sniff and see how I go =)
