Spring Wish List

I'm sitting here watching TOWIE..a bit of 'oh shat app' always cheers me up. I'm sprinkling some spring love onto my blog. I didn't feel comfortable with my old layout and background so I've gone with this fresh new pink one. I had a couple of girlies ask me this week how I make my banners, I use Adobe Photoshop. I'm no design expert, I have very basic skills with design packages that I picked up at uni so that's how I have created all of my banners.  I'm really happy with this one now.

I've been watching YT videos and reading all your blog posts (link me to your blog if you haven't already) and I have compiled a bit of a spring wish list.


I have been lusting over Chanel lately, it's something about the luxury of it that you can't find anywhere else. There's just something about pulling out a Chanel compact and touching up your make-up- needless to say I haven't experienced this yet lol! But I have a Boots voucher worth £30 and I think I have made my decision to put it towards a Chanel compact and one of their new Coco Rouge Shine Lipsticks. I am thinking perhaps a bronzing powder and a nude lipstick.


I have been lusting over two items from MAC. One is a blusher and the other a lipstick. I didn't get anything from the 'Quite Cute' collection, I thought about their 'Playing Koi' lipstick but didn't end up getting it.

Well Dressed Blush- I have sooo many blushes but I've heard lots of good things about this one, particularly from Tanya Burr from pixi2woo. I can't find a picture to show you for this one without stealing it from someones blog which I definitely don't want to do. Anyway, here's the official swatch from the MAC website.

Creme Cup Lipstick- I've always wanted a nude everyday lipstick at MAC but everytime I make it to the store my eyes draw to the bright, bold shiny lipsticks and I buy one of those instead. There's something about the pink tones in Creme Cup which I really like.


Leather Ethnic Toepost Sandles - £19.99

Mock Snakeskin Effect Stachel- £24.99


Shorts- £12.99

There's so many summery white broderie anglaise tops and dresses in H&M at the moment which I really love, wish I had an endless budget to buy them ^-^

So there's a few things from my spring wish list :) I hope everyone has a lovely bank holiday weekend. Mine will be spent celebrating my friend's 21st and getting my head together with some time by myself. 

See you in my next post :) Feel free to leave requests, I'm always looking for inspiration for new posts. 


  1. Great wishlist, sorry to hear you've been having a hard time hope things are looking up for you though hun. Love the new banner too by the way xx

    I used to buy practically all Dior makeup when I was about 15 and had nothing important to spend my money on- sigh!

    Hope you're good lovely :) xxx
