Wishlist

Believe it or not, I've been in the 'I don't need anything/ I have so much already' frame of mind for quite a few months now. I've not been buying makeup or many beauty products at all. Besides essentials like foundation, I have enough mascaras, eyeshadows, body lotions, etc. to keep me going for ages and Christmas has topped them up. I'm actually quite good at not buying things for the sake of it. Most of the time I just can't justify the cost (Ted Baker bag I'm looking at you). As a result, I accumulate quite a long list of 'maybe, maybe not' things I have my eye on in stores. Here's what's on it on at the moment:


I'm a massive HP fan and as you all know, I love stationary too so you can imagine my excitement when I came across a Harry Potter section in WHSmith recently. They have the new editions of the books and so many notebooks.
Ideally I'd like a pink duster coat (is that what they're called?) but I can't seem to see one anywhere at the moment. This mac would definitely be more practical though.
I seen the Katie Loxton range for the first time when I was up north at the beginning of last month and instantly loved it. If you haven't heard of it you should definitely have a browse on the website.
I love prosecco these days! Who doesn't? And this bank is so cute.
This brand is everywhere I turn on social media - every celebrity I follow seems to use these products. The advertising is totally paying off - I want to try them!
I've wanted a Jo Malone perfume (or candle) for so long - but the price?! They don't have sales either so apparently the best price is at duty free. But for the cost of one bottle I could probably buy a round the world trip...

So I guess we can venture the conclusion that I'm a bit of a tight arse. Its always nice to look at nice things even if I won't actually splash out on them. What do you have your eye on at the moment?

    1. The pink coat seems to be a popular choice. I saw a girl wearing it in town the other day and it made me want it even more!

  3. I love the HP journal! I am a huge Harry Potter fan myself, but trying to find anything 'Harry Potter' where I live is ridiculous! We don't have anything like that here in South Africa.

    Great post lovely!

  5. I'm loving your blog girl!! I'm in the same exact position as you are! For some reason I haven't wanted anything like that and if I do I can't justify the cost. Luckily I live out of town so I'm not surrounded by shops that would make me want stuff hahaha!! *she says as she gets ready for town tomorrow*
