Pay Day Wishlist

Biker Jacket: Topshop
Eyeshadow Palette: Charlotte Tilbury
Pay day is almost here - it feels like ages since the last one, or is it just me?! Me being me, I haven't been able to go without making a list of all of the things that I want to buy when my bank account is looking a bit less bare. 

First up the flared jeans - this might be more of an aspirational item than something I'll actually end up buying, as I have an awful feeling that flares would not suit me at all. I love them though, so will try on at least one pair just to be completely sure. This New Look pair are a bit of a bargain though, so I might end up buying them anyway just to have them in my wardrobe. 

I've been resisting buying a new handbag for months now, trying to be sensible and use some of my older ones instead to save money. After the handle broke on one and the lining ripped on another though, I have come to the conclusion that I pretty much have to buy a new one. This Fiorelli bag is gorgeous enough on its own, but then I spotted that it could be personalised. I have always had a yearning for a bag with my initials on, so this is pretty much a must buy for me.

Items three and four on my list have a lot of things in common. Number one, they are totally beautiful. Number two, they are both pink (always a good thing in my book). Number three...they are both just that teensy bit too expensive for me to be able to impulsively purchase them. The jacket is gorgeous, but I have a feeling I'd be able to find a cheaper version elsewhere if I looked hard enough. The shoes though...I don't know if I'll be able to let go of those so easily.

Last but not least we have the token beauty item. I recently carried out a bit of a cull on my makeup and ended up downsizing so that anything that I don't use on a regular basis got binned. Ruthless, I know. Still - this totally leaves room for adding more makeup, and I've been eyeing up this Charlotte Tilbury palette for a good few months now. Perhaps its time.


  1. Had my eye on that bag for a few weeks and bought it the other day - it's currently sat in a postie's van on its way to me :) Good choices! x
