Mish Mash Wishlisting!

Okay, is it possible to be behind on life? Because I think I am. It's like I've blinked and fallen back into October, but it's nearly December and I'm not getting anything done. I'm still around, but I'm going to be disappearing again for a week. An organised and put together person would have already filled you in on the details, but I am not that person at the moment. Although actually, can we just pause though and talk about Adele's new album? It might be my heightened emotional state right now, but I'm pretty sure she can see into my soul. Goes to show that even though sometimes it feels like you're alone in feeling the way you do, there's always someone else that feels the same. We're never alone. And that's comforting.

Anyway, John Lewis got in touch recently because Black Friday is fast approaching (don't even get me started on where the year has gone again). They asked me to put together a list of things I would be all over if they were in the sale, and because I needed to take my mind of things here are a few things I have my eye on and will probably buy very soon, sale or no sale. But sale would be nice, let's be honest.

Hourglass Palette. 
I know this isn't the best value for money product wise, and honestly the price tag does make my eyes water just a little, but I feel like it should be accompanied with some dramatic music as the lid opens. Palettes haven't interested me much before, I was all about accumulating lots of single things (why? I have no idea!), but I'm now beginning to see the value in a really good palette. And they're surprisingly difficult to come by. Maybe the perfect palette is tricky to get right!

A Nice Pair Of Headphones.
My cheapy headphones broke recently and it was only then that I realised that I've never had a nice pair of headphones. I go through phases of either wanting to go outside and experience all the hustle and bustle of everyday life or go outside and drown everyday life out with a good song or podcast, and I'm definitely in the latter phase right now.

A Keyboard. 
All the things I can't do, or once tried to do but gave up on along the way, have been occupying my thoughts a lot of late. Many years ago I took piano lessons at school, and I have to confess it was mostly because it meant I got to miss a maths lesson every week. Maths wasn't my favourite. When it became apparent to eight year old me that I was not an undiscovered musical genius, much to my disappointment, I quickly formed a hatred for my piano lessons on a par with my hatred for maths. But I'm now giving it another go and as much as I would love a piano, I think a keyboard might be the way to go first. Although I have no intentions of giving up this time... I'm going with the keyboard just in case.

A Graphic Tablet. 
Not necessarily for any particular reason, I've just found myself fancying being able to have a bit of a doodle and see what comes of it. 

Is there anything you would love to see in a Black Friday sale? 


I'll be back soon with lots to tell you! Thank you for always being so wonderful. There are no words to adequately describe how grateful I am. xo


  1. I'd love a graphics tablet, & them head phones are amazing! x


  2. That hourglass palette is so tempting!!


  3. A keyboard is a really good way to feel out if you want to commit to piano. Also, there's something soothing about tinkering around on one.

    Hope you feel better, whatever you're going through x

  4. Gorgeous headphones! I never used to be a headphones, or a listen-to-music-on-the-go type of person but I bought some good ones for my frequent train journeys up and down the country and it is so worth investing in a good pair. The graphics tablet looks like fun too! I'm not sure what I'd do with one but I've always wanted to try it out xx


  5. I looove my tablet for when I get into my drawing moods. They're so handy. I'm also eyeballing that Hourglass palette but the price feels like a punch to the face!


  6. I know what you mean about loosing track of time, I feel like this month has gone by so quickly yet I've done barely anything...
    Great choices, those headphones look amazing! x

  9. The headphones are so pretty! There is so much I'd love to see in the Black Friday Sale, but I would definitely not brave the crowds in shopping centres for it!xx

  10. Those headphones are adorable! My sister has a pair of those, and I've been seeing them here and there in different colors. Hahaha, math isn't my favorite either, and I'd do anything to skip out on a lesson!

  12. I think I'd enjoy messing around on a graphics tablet to see if I can produce anything half decent! I hope you feel better and more on top of things soon xx

  13. Love those headphones. Also I did a little squeal when I saw the keyboard!!! Yay for music!!!! Good luck with learning and I hope it goes well (and I selfishly hope you keep us updated on your progress!) xx

  14. It's a bit frustrating how headphones cost these days :(

  15. I have been wanting a pretty pair of headphones like that one for a while now!

  16. I flinched when I bought the Hourglass palette but honestly, it's so insanely beautiful! The film music plays, albeit inwards, every time I open it. It's so convenient also!

    Headphones are so cool nowadays. I always see people on the train with different, stylish headphones and if my head weren't so big I'd try to find a pair myself.

    I hope you're doing all right!
