Favourite High Street Store

So we all love shopping right? Yes of course we do, who doesn’t love spending money you don’t have on stuff you don’t really need?! Because we all love it I thought I would write about my current favourite store with you and share some of the things that I have found on their website and really want to purchase.. some of which I may have bought just before I started writing this, which means there may also be a haul sometime soon too 🙂

So my favourite high street store at the moment is H&M. Its affordable, the clothes are super nice, good quality and the home section is absolutely stunning! What I like about H&M is although they have some more questionable items of clothing (but which clothes store doesn’t), most of their clothes are actually really nice and they have a lot that I would actually wear. I am really loving the ‘basics’ section at the moment, especially for long sleeved work tops. The homeware section is amazing and I want to buy absolutely everything. I recently got my cushion covers from H&M and I am so happy with them. If you want to see which ones I got just head over to my Quick Catch Up post as I shared a picture of them there.

Now onto my H&M wishlist..

Striped Dress – I really like this dress! Its from the basics collection but it looks such good quality and would be good for work or a casual event.

Embroidered Blouse – This is super pretty and again would be good for lots of different occasions. I am really into shirts so I had to include this on my list.

Petit Fit Skinny Jeans – I have just ordered these jeans as I am currently on the hunt for a new pair and thought these looked really good as well as being super affordable.

Long-sleeved Jersey Top – These tops are just the best. I wear them for work, for casual events and to chill around the house. They look great tucked in or out and I want it in every colour!!

Knitted Wool-blend Cardigan – Cardigans are definitely something that I need more of, especially super cosy ones like this. I think this looks really soft and I’m now gutted that I didn’t add it to my order.

Knitted Cotton-blend Blanket – I love blankets and always have one wrapped around me when chilling on the sofa. This one looks really cosy as well and isn’t too expensive.

Candle Tray – This kind of homeware piece is really in at the moment and I really like them. I would probably use this to put my perfumes on.. it would also be good for blog/Instagram pictures.

Striped Cotton Rug – I am obsessed with rugs at the moment and really want a long rug for my hallway. This one would be perfect – now to convince my partner to let me buy it ;).

I hope you enjoyed this post. What is your favourite store at the moment?

Speak soon.

Beauty Products I Want to Try!

My beauty wishlist is constantly growing, even when I manage to treat myself to something on the list you can almost guarantee two more things will be added straight away. I have done a couple of these posts before but thought I’d do an updated one because my list seems to be very large at the moment so I am going to share the top 5 products that are currently on my wishlist. Don’t forget to let me know whats on your wishlist at the moment too…

Beauty Wishlist Collage 2017Beauty Wishlist –

  • Hourglass Vanish Seamless Finish Foundation Stick – I still haven’t tried anything from Hourglass and there is always one of their products on my wishlists. I have heard good things about this foundation and I have always been intrigued by the stick foundations.
  • L’Oreal Paris Paradise Mascara – This is a new product from L’Oreal and as soon as I saw this was being released it was mentally added to my list. I love L’Oreal products so as soon as my current mascara runs out I will be purchasing this.
  • Iconic London Illuminator Drops – These look absolutely amazing!! I feel like your highlight would be on point 24/7 with these.
  • The Body Shop Expert Face Masks – I really like the look of these and have tried samples but haven’t tried any of the new ones. I love face masks, especially when they are from The Body Shop.
  • Zoeva Coral Spectrum Blush Palette – Zoeva is my favourite makeup brush brand and I also have a couple of their eyeshadow palettes so I really want to try this blush palette. It looks so pretty and you really can’t go wrong for just under £15!!

That rounds up the top 5 products that are on my beauty wishlist at the moment. Let me know if you have tried any of them and what you think. Hope you’re having a good bank holiday weekend as well!!

Current Beauty Wishlist!

Hey guys! I hope you have had a good week and enjoying your Saturday so far! I thought that I would share with you all the makeup items that I am currently lusting over right now and if I could buy them all I most definitely would! Don’t forget to let me know what’s on your wishlist in the comments.


First up is the Anastasia Beverley Hills Modern Renaissance Eyeshadow Palette. This is just a stunning palette and the shades are right up my street! I have never tried anything from ABH but I am always hearing good things about their products.

Next is the By Terry Ombre Blackstar Eyeshadow in the shade Ombre Mercure. I have had my eye on this for a long time now and very nearly bought it last year. Once again I have never tried anything from the By Terry range but always hear about these eyeshadow sticks, plus this shade is absolutely beautiful!

Now it wouldn’t be a wishlist without some Charlotte Tilbury products and this Luxury Eyeshadow Palette in the shade Golden Goddess is just gorgeous! Whenever I am at a CT counter I always swatch this and I think out of all of these, this might be my next ‘big’ makeup purchase!

Yes, I am obsessed with Charlotte Tilbury and this is the super pretty Instant Look in a Palette. This palette is actually limited edition so I probably wont ever get my hands on one but a girl can dream.. I love how natural all the shades are in this palette and it would be perfect to take away on a mini break because you literally have everything you need all in one place!

Ahh Hourglass, another brand that I have never tried but really, really want to and not just because the products look amazing but the packaging is also spot on! This is the Ambient Lighting Edit Palette which I was also so close to buying last month but my responsible side kicked in and persuaded me not to (damn you responsible adult Rachel)!

Finally we have some makeup brushes from Spectrum. These are the White Marbleous 12 piece set and they are SO pretty! I have had my eye on these for a few months now and when I received one of their eyeshadow brushes in my February Birchbox, I wanted this set even more! The eyeshadow brush is so soft I can only imagine how soft all these are, especially the face brushes!

So that is it for this post! I hope you enjoyed it. Let me know whats on your wishlist at the moment and also if you have tried any of the above products!

See you soon!

My New Favourite App!

Hey guys! I hope you are having a brill weekend! I have got a bit of a different post today and I am quite excited about it! I have found an app that I am now obsessed with and it’s not an amazing new discovery or anything but for me its new as I have never used it before – yes I am crazy and waaaay behind the times! So my new favourite app is Etsy, I know they are online as well but I mainly use the app when browsing! I had heard of it but never really been on it and I am so glad I decided to download it as I have seen so many beautiful things and even made a cheeky purchase!

I am basically going to create a little Etsy wishlist/favourites and also show you what I have just bought on there as I am so happy with it!

Aquamarine Gold Ring

First up I saw this Aqua Marine Wire Wrapped Ring and I have wanted a ring with a stone this colour for a while now. I just think it is so pretty and classy. This ‘ice blue’ kind of colour is my favourite!

Blanket Scarf

I had to include a scarf in here and when I saw this I instantly loved it! I love the colours they are so bright yet not in your face. Plus this looks super warm!

Fancy Tape

These little tapes are so cute, I really need to get some for my to-do lists and diary so that I can jazz them up a bit and these would be perfect!

Galaxy Fairy Lights

I fell in love with these fairy lights straight away! I love fairy lights but I also love anything to do with stars and space! They are quite pricy but absolutely gorgeous.

Iphone 6 Case

I am thinking of getting a new phone soon when I can upgrade so I am have been looking at loads of Iphone 6 cases, you can get so many pretty ones and this is definitely one of my faves that I have seen so far!

Iphone Case

Another pretty phone case! I really like the clear cases especially if you get a coloured phone you can still see it!

Owl Scarf

Scarves are my downfall! I have waay to many but they are so good for making a dull outfit look a bit more put together! I love owls so I was instantly drawn to this scarf!

OwlcPencil Holders

Keeping on the owl theme how cute are these pencil pots, which could also be used for storing makeup brushes! Owl decor is just way to cute 😀

Ring Holder

This is the perfect home decor item for me! You can’t beat a bit of CHANEL and champagne! This would be perfect for keeping jewellery in or even keys and loose bits of change!

Turquoise Ring

Another ring with the same-ish colour stone but I absolutely love it! So simple but beautiful!

So my little purchase was some Harry Potter bookmarks! As you may know I am a huge fan of Harry Potter so I couldn’t resist buying these especially as one of them has my favourite quote on ‘Happiness can be found even in the darkest of times if one only remembers to turn on the light’. These bookmarks were sent from Poland but got here in a few days and the packaging was super cute, they had hand written my name on the box in fancy writing and it has a little thank you card in! I got these from a shop called HomeDecorDrawing, just incase any of you are Harry Potter mad like me and want to get some for yourself.

See you soon!

Fashion Wishlist!

Hello lovelies! I hope you are having a lovely weekend! I have decided to do a fashion wishlist today as there are so many things I would like to buy but because I am trying to save, save, save I cant :(. So here is everything I am trying not to buy…

Fashion Wishlist Collage Jan 2016

  1. ASOS Ridley Skinny Jeans – I live in black skinny jeans at the moment but I really want a pair with the rips in and these are my favourite I have seen so far!
  2. H&M Lace Blouse – This is absolutely beautiful! I am loving blouses like this at the moment as they are perfect for work but also for going out.
  3. Kurt Geiger Sebastien Wine Ankle Boots – I have had my eye on these for a long, long time! I very nearly bought them for myself at Christmas but decided against it as they are SO expensive! I still look at them every now and then online and in store – a girl can dream 😉
  4.  Mint Velvet Nola Print Batwing Knit – Mint Velvet is my new favourite shop. I don’t own anything from there but I always go in and wish I owned everything! This knit is absolutely gorgeous and so different!
  5. Mint Velvet Navy Hooded Trench Coat – This whole wishlist was very nearly just a Mint Velvet wishlist but I managed to stop myself! This coat is so gorgeous and I need a coat for Spring time as I only really have a winter coat. This would go with everything and looks so smart!
  6. Tiffany Victoria Cat Eye Sunglasses – I saw these way before Christmas when I was looking to buy some new sunglasses, fell in love with them asked the price put them back down and walked straight out the shop! Ridiculously expensive for some sunglasses but they are absolutely gorgeous! One day I will have these… I just need to win the lottery first ;)!

So that is my fashion wishlist at the moment. I realise that a few of the products are quite expensive but as you may already know I seem to have really expensive taste and I am always attracted to expensive things, rather annoying, but I wanted to include them as these are the things that are actually on my wishlist at the moment!

I hope you enjoyed this post! Let me know whats on your fashion wishlist at the moment as I would love to know!

Also just a quick favour to ask, if you are reading this post through the ‘Reader’ section on WordPress, please can you let me know as I don’t know if changing my name and url has changed that! Thank you 🙂

See you soon!
