Weekly Wishlist #2

I’ve decided after a lot of spending, on a majority of things that I don’t need that for the next month I am going to try and avoid buying anymore clothes or make up. Quite frankly I have more than enough of both and I just think it’s about time that I start saving some money for the future. It also gives me a great chance to use up everything I already have cosmetics wise, and get some good use out of all the clothes that fill my wardrobe.

Having said that however, that doesn’t mean I can’t still wish for things so I’ll still be doing my weekly wishlist posts, just so I can lust over things even if it means I don’t actually buy them. All of the things I’ve picked this week are all under £20 which brings temptation, but I shall be strong!!!

Black Zara Shopper Dube – Ebay £11.99

A much cheaper and pretty impressive alternative for the ever so popular at the moment Zara shopping bag. I was pointed in the direction of this beauty by Gemma’s Haul video on YouTube. I think the quality looks decent and I prefer the smaller size of this than the Zara one. I’ve been looking for a decent black handbag that I can use everyday for a long while, but I going to hold off or at least maybe treat myself when I know I’ve put some money aside for my savings.

Topshop Nails – Valley –  Topshop £6

This has recently popped up in my local store, and if you’re a regular reader you’ll know I find it hard to resist a new nail polish! The beautiful mint green with silver sparkle running through it is just beautiful and is perfect for the summer. I think it would look great for toe nails with a cracking pair of sandals…that’s if we ever get the weather for them!

MUA ‘Undressed’ Palette – £4

I’m a massive fan of anything MUA, especially their eyeshadow palettes. So I was super excited when I found out they were releasing a new neutral palette. It’s an uncanny dupe for Urban Decay’s ‘Naked’ Palette and an absolute steal for £4. The pigmentation is amazing and the colours are just up my street. This is probably the most likely thing to be the culprit of me breaking my ‘no spending’ rule and I can’t wait to get my hands on it! Sadly my local Superdrug’s range of MUA seems to be going downhill lately so I’m not expecting to see it in store anytime soon, so I might need to make an online order!

Coral Peplum Jersey Top – Topshop £16

I’ve been having a bit of a thing for peplum lately, I find it so flattering for my ‘lack of curves’ petite frame, because the shape gives an amazing illusion of curves. This particular top comes in a range of colours…dangerous, as it can lead to multiple purchases of the same top in different colours but that coral really caught my eye. I also really like the burgundy version as I think it will be perfect for the Autumn/Winter season that lurks upon us, i’m suspecting burgundy to be huge next season! I tried this on in my local store, and the fit was amazing and I actually think for Topshop the price is pretty reasonable too.

What are you lusting after this week?

Weekly Wishlist #1

I’ve seen quite a lot of people doing these sort of posts on blogs recently so I thought I’d jump on the bandwagon and share with you all, some of the lovely products I’d love to get my hands on over the next couple of weeks. More than likely I’ll have to wait until my next payday before I can treat myself to any of these things as I’m trying to save some money to go towards either a newer car or a new laptop…I can’t quite decide between the two at the moment. This will also help me keep track of things I’ve seen around the shops and online so that I know where I can get them once I know I can afford a cheeky splurge. I’ll try and do these weekly, as I do pop into the shops after work most days, so I’ve always got plenty to lust after.

Essie Nail Polish – Tart Deco (Superdrug £7.99)

I’ve been admiring swatches of this on quite a few blogs recently and think it’s just the perfect colour for Summer. If I was going anywhere near a beach this year, this would definitely be a must have on my toe nails. I’ve also recently purchased my first ever Essie polish, so live in expectation of this being just as enjoyable to use. A little on the pricey side though and I also have way too many polishes so think I’ll hold off for a while yet.

Vectra Blue Studded Loafers (Topshop £28)

I already have the nude leather look version with the gold studs and have worn them to death since I bought them. They are so comfortable! I absolutely adore the colour, as I love anything turquoise. The photo doesn’t do them justice as they look nothing like this in real life as they are definitely more of a bright turquoise than the pastel blue they appear here. My only issue with these would be the canvas material of them, as they probably wouldn’t be that practical in the ever predictable wet British weather, but I shall continue to admire them every time I see them in my local store.

Denim Sequin Front Hotpants (Topshop £35)

These are most definitely not something I would usually go for, but when I saw them in my local store recently they just caught my eye straight away. I’m not usually one for glitzy things, but I love wearing denim shorts and I just thought these were just awesome and are dressy enough to wear on a night out without being too out there, with only the front of them being sequined. I did try these on and for me the fit of them wasn’t ‘arse on show’ revealing so they were just right for me, as I like to keep my buttocks firmly out of sight (not that there is much to see, as I’m sadly not blessed with curves) Again what puts me off is the price, as they are pretty pricey for a pair of shorts…but the detailing of the sequins might just justify a purchase at some point in the future.

Mint Sleeveless Sequin Collar Top (Glamorous – £23.99)

I’ve been lusting after this ever since I saw Alix from icovetthee wearing it in her ‘Shopping the Stash’ video. I think the colour is just gorgeous and the sequin collar is just really cute. I was thinking I would pair it with the denim shorts I’ve already mentioned but worry it might be a bit too sequin heavy? What do you think? Finding this little gem might also have opened a dark place, as I’d never heard of Glamorous before, but they have so many nice pieces on their website I’m now mentally spending rather a lot of money every time I visit, and it’s definitely now bookmarked on my browser!

So there we have it… What have you been lusting over recently? Are there any fashion websites you would recommend?
