Wishes, wishes, wishes...

So, I've been a bit quiet on the blogging front recently. This hasn't been intentional but the lens on my camera broke and I feel at a bit of a loss without it! Anyway, I'm eagerly awaiting payday so I can buy a new lens - they're not cheap. I have so many photo-based posts planned too, I've been feeling a bit creative recently and have been doing some lovely nail art designs (if I do say so myself) and making some teacup candles which are so easy to do and make great little gifts. I'm also going to try upcycling some old furniture soon so I'll have to take some pictures to document how that goes!

Anyway, as usual, I'm a bit poor at the moment but that doesn't stop me doing some window shopping. I'm getting bored of my hair, I've wanted it to grow out for a while since having it chopped in the summer, so now it's quite long but I want to just jazz it up a bit. I think I'm going to try Loreal's wild ombre dye this week, just for a little change. Has anyone else tried it? I haven't seen too many reviews as of yet.

How amazing is this Topshop dress? I absolutely love the cut - it's a dream! I love the nipped in waist and the floaty midi skirt which falls beautifully. It's a hefty £95 but if it's in the sale after Christmas (PLEASE, Topshop?) it'll be an instabuy for me as it will easily see me through winter and spring. I'd really like to team it with the YSL Volupte Lipstick in Forbidden Burgundy to create a bit of a vampy look. I've been meaning to get a deep red lipstick for a while but can't quite find the right shade - this looks perfect!

I don't like to spend lots of money on hugely expensive clothes, £40 is about my limit (even then it's with hesitation) purely because it's likely that I'll get bored of them in a week or two and then I'll be out buying the next thing. But if there's one item I'm willing to invest in, it's shoes. Most cheap shoes absolutely rip my feet to shreds - I bought some studded ankle boots in Primark, walked about 20 metres out the door in them then turned back because I could feel blisters forming. As it goes, Clarks aren't renowned for having the most stylish shoes on the street but they're certainly the most comfortable and that's SO important for me. I really LOVE these black ankle boots, they're really chic and not too high and look great quality. They're a really reasonable £74.99 too!

BE KIND TO YOUR FEET, PEOPLE. Nothing is worth ending up with bunions like Victoria Beckham. 

Have you got anything on my wishlist? How is it? What's on yours at the moment?


  1. I was *so close* to buying that dip dye, but chickened out and just went for blonde instead! But I reckon you'd rock it x
