WISHLIST #1 - 2013

Happy New Year Everyone! And what a start I'm having ...

Well, everyone's doing the 'Happy New Year' Post's and well, I feel I've done about ten already so I thought about having a different start and go straight in at the deep end! That's right, it starts again - a New Year and the star of a new line of WISHLIST's - yaaay for my love of fashion and beauty - which is clearly a sheer addiction - but boo for my wee bank account - let's just say thank god for work holiday pay...

So a change in year does not change my attitude of lusting towards beauty and fashion, in effect I think it may have gotten more enhanced with my free time I've had has given me the ability for more shopping hauls and online fawning - so I've been have a gander at all the new lines and come up with my first WISHLIST of the year! I know some fab bloggers are doing spending ban's to start the year and I'm doing a WISHLIST, but that goes without saying my obsession with fashion and beauty is clearly worse than ever- but I suppose that goes along with my 'straight in at the deep end' start... Lo and behold, my obsession is going to carry on...

I've browsed the shops and here's my findings... I hope you like them all!

From Top Left:

  • ARTOO 2.0 DRESS - BlackMilk - £83.47 - I LOVE LOVE LOVE Blackmilk - you always think they're going to make you look fat - but I tried on a few pieces and I fell instantly in love! This dress combines my love of their clothes and my love of all things nerdy!
  • Petite Denim Skater Skirt - Topshop - £20 - A denim skirt has been a staple of every woman's wardrobe for years - so I thought this would be a nice update version...
  • The Artiste Collection Palette - MUA - £6 (I've got for Free!) - This is a fab combination of 6 merged eye shadows, two powder blushers and a contour shade and highlighter. A full face in one - serious how can you say no?!
  • Petite Half Sleeve Tunic Dress - Topshop - £25 - I'm always after a new LBD - I simply can't get enough! So this dress is perfect as it has complete versatility!
  • Fur-Effect Nails - MUA - £3 each -  I fell in love with these at first sight and my lovely man went straight online and ordered me two - I shall review these when I get them and first it's caviar and now it's fur - what next - and yes I know, more for my nails!
  • Navy Peplum Short - River Island - £29 - Well it wouldn't be my WISHLIST if it had no peplum in it and these shorts instantly caught my eyes - they're a nice change from regular shorts and they're a versatile yet sexy blue!
  • Black Jersey Peplum Blazer - Miss. Selfridge - £20 - Yes, another peplum, but I thought this would be a nice variation to a regular blazer for work - they also have it studded - do I dare get two?
  • LucyQ Hula Ring - Silver Design Jewellery - £85 - Well I got the necklace - how could I say no to a matching ring - plus I have a very special anniversary coming up with my special man!
  • Green & Gold Vintage Stone Ring - Zara Taylor - £16 - I have the Turquoise one - as that's my birth stone but this one instantly made me go "I want" - Or to be polite "I would like please" - her Jewellery is simply fab - except the spike rings are a bit inappropriate for day-to-day wear...
  • Red Or Dead Scallop Edge Fabric Clutch - Newlook - £15 (On sale!) - I love clutch bags - yes ok,I may have too many bags my man says - but this one is Red Or Dead and  on sale - it's a valid excuse in my opinion....
  • Wiccy Magic Muscles Massage Bar - Lush - £6.25 - Well after a long hard year a massage is needed - so why not a Massage bar and you really can' get better than the ones from Lush!
  • Fresh Pharmacy Cleanser - Lush - £4.70/per 100g - I'm always after something new to try to tackle blemished skin. So anything that does that and has natural ingredients you cannot say no to...
  • A French Kiss Bubble Bar - Lush - £4.15 - I LOVE Lush bubble bars they make my bath bubbly, smell edible and my skin feel absolutely Lush (pardon the pun!) - If you can get your hands on a wand!
So that's my not-so-mini first WISHLIST of the year! I won't say I want - as that would truly be reflecting Veruca Salt a bit too much for even my liking - but I will say - Mr.Wages I would like you to please stretch further this year? Cheers Love! hehe

I know there's quite a bit there, but like I said, straight in at the deep end this year - I decided I wouldn't fanny around with six different ones when to be honest, a New Year should start big - so my blog has!
As soon as I get any of these items I shall certainly do a {Rachael Review} for them and give you all full details whether to get them or not - Let's start this year anew and keep it going with fab force...

So what do you think of my rather extensive list?
What's on your list for the start of this new year?

  8. I'm loving 2013 wishlists, there's no way I could do a 100 day spending ban! Love that Miss Selfridge Blazer, I resisted going shopping after Christmas but I have a feeling that when I go back to Uni I might have to do a bit of shopping! xx
