Sitting waiting wishing...

Well hello there, 

Things I'd love but probably don't need... (The end of August/birthday in a few days edition)

So it's no secret that I love shopping, in any form actually; online, shopping centres, charity shops, vintage, markets, if its a type of shopping I probably enjoy it (except B&Q or Homebase... not really my cup of tea, though last time I was in B&Q with my Grandparents I managed to have a laugh mucking around with giant lengths of tubing... so mature) but anyways after a little online browsing, I've compiled a list of things I am currently lusting after. Some of which you can't even buy yet... 

I didn't realise until yesterday that I don't actually own any 'real' nude lipsticks... I was personally classing MAC 'Please Me' as a nude (still am a little) but was thinking though not necessarily a nude that this would be a lovely addition to my lipstick collection. Especially as I don't own any Topshop makeup and have heard it's lovely.

Secondly... Accessorize Mari tote £38
I actually work in Accessorize but have decided this will be my next big splurge! I love this bag so much, I wasn't hugely keen on it at first but it has really grown on me, it's a great size and will be perfect for going to and from college and will even fit my laptop inside. I don't have much else to say really as I'm definitely planning to purchase this :)

Third... Benefit How to Look the Best at Everything Light £24.50 (not yet released)
how to look the best at everything - light
Benefit's Hello Flawless Oxygen WOW foundation is my all time favourite foundation, I love the coverage the consistency, everything about this foundation for me is perfect! I have wanted to try the 'boi-ing' concealers from Benefit for a while as well as the Hello Gorgeous powder more regularly so this kit is perfect, I can't wait for it to be released.

I haven't shopped properly at Topshop in ages, partly due to being pretty tall and much as I love the Tall range it's often fairly limited... Though this is so lovely, it's basic but looks so cosy and comfy and is a definite perfect jumper for Autumn/Winter, I think it would be lovely layered over a nice shirt with my favourite collar chain (stud type thingys... from Topshop incidentally) and some skinnies and my patent pink Dr Martens... In fact I'm sold, I really want this ;)

Paperchase is one of my favourite shops ever! I have a list pages and pages long of the things I'd love to buy from there, but these are so adorable! Studying would be much more fun with these little cuties... 

Anthropologie is one of those shops in which I could literally spend hundreds of pounds, everything in there is just so beautiful and exactly the kind of things I love... typical as it's pretty expensive too, such is life. My love affair with Anthropologie began when my friend Susan gave me this mug anyone who comes to my house notices it and asks where its from, I love it so much, I really want to buy another 5 to have a set but sadly can't justify £50! But still a girl can dream I love this beautiful whimsical bedding, with the floral pattern and vibrant colours...maybe one day.

Well I shall have to stop myself or else I'll find even more things I 'love' and hopelessly lust after more, I hope you've enjoyed reading about my shameless love of shopping and have had a lovely day.

Till next time,
