With my birthday just around the corner, I have started to think of a few things I would like to receive, or that I may treat myself to (everyone has to buy themselves a birthday treat too, right?!)
Faux Suede Jacket - I'm such a coat person... I could probably list you about ten coats that I would like for my birthday and be done with this post, but this one is top of the list. As soon as I saw this on AX Paris' Instagram I liked, screen-shotted and commented with all the heart emojis...the colour, the black edging, the edge to edge style - this is 'the one'!
Tassle Saddle Bag - I have way too many bags, but this just screams perfect every day bag to me which could also be used on a night or for a more dressy occasion. I usually carry around a huge handbag and it ends up weighing so much that my arm aches by the end of the day. This bag just seems so practical, versatile and cute, it's definitely not a 'need', but a much wanted 'want'.
Pyramid Salt Rock Desk Lamp - Moving into my own house has made me slightly obsessed with homeware and accessories, gone are the days of me browsing clothes sites for hours on end, as you will now find me looking at cushions, rugs and lamps! This lamp is so quickly and different, I feel like it would really add something to a room without being too in your face. I have decorated the spare bedroom in our house into an office space for myself with a monochrome theme, and this would sit perfectly as a bit of a statement.
Unicorn iPhone Case - I know so many people who change their phone case on a regular basis, but I've had the same clear (and very boring) one for almost a year now... It's definitely time to give my phone a makeover and this case ticks all of the boxes for me! First of all it's unicorns, secondly it's glittery, do I need to say anymore?!
Kate Spade Cedar Street Nika Purse - I've never been one to really want a designer bag... I get so bored with my handbags and change them up so often, I could never really justify spending money on one. With purses however, I only change mine when the one I'm using falls apart (which is where I'm at right now with my current purse) and this Kate Spade one is a real treat, it's simple, smart and classy and of course has all of the necessary card and coin space.
Filmstar Bronze & Glow - I don't usually ask people to buy me makeup, I like to shop for it myself but Ray will tell you how much I want this, every time we're in Selfridges I go and have a little swatch and a play but I'm yet to make the splurge. I have a few CT products now and this is definitely next on my hit list, the softly milled highlight is so pretty on the skin and the contour is the ideal shade for me to create a really natural yet defined shadow, oh I just love it!
Cloud Nine Irons - I've used Cloud Nine's for over five years now and I can't rave about them enough. Mine have been so well loved I would love a fresh new pair, the temperature control and mineral infused plates make these irreplaceable to me.
Ben Haenow album - I loved Ben from his first audition on XFactor last year, his voice is just gorgeous and distinctive. I feel like I've been waiting ages for this album to be released and can't wait to have it in my car.
Olly Murs calendar - Obviously this had to be on the list, I love Olly too much for him not to be my calendar of choice every year. I would prefer the real thing wrapped up for me... he's just so beautiful, but of course everyone needs a calendar so I would settle for that!
Kate Spade Notebook - Another Kate Spade item to add to the wish list and perhaps a slightly more indulgent
or unnecessary one but it's just so pretty and I know I would use this to death. I'm forever writing lists and notes, not only just for my blog but for FABB and my day to day life, this would definitely be well loved.
Velvet Boots - I am hoping that ASOS restock these in pink before my big day, but if they don't I would gladly go for the blue version, they're the perfect statement boots for this season!
YSL Black Opium - I'm always drawn to heavier scents and this is my current favourite, I was given a sample at work and it was love at first smell! Black Opium has notes of black coffee, vanilla and pink pepper while still being floral and feminine, it's just so unique and distinguishable and really long lasting. To be totally materialistic, the packaging is stunning too, how gorgeous would this look on the dressing table?!
