Everyone loves a wishlist, am I right? I do too. Although I must say, after listing a certain number of items, I inevitably reach the stage where I either purchase something on the list out of sheer desperation (there was a tartan scarf on the first draft of this post, but then, er, I bought it) or end up sinking into a penniless pit of despair, lamenting my lack of riches and questioning all of my life's decisions.
But it is nearly Christmas now - well, near enough that I can justify any wishlist as absolutely necessary in order to pass on to family and friends in the hope that someone will take pity on my peasant-like self and purchase something on the list for me. That's not to say I don't love surprises, of course. But I like lists. Here's mine!
Chloe Eau de Parfum - I'm drawn to heavy, lingering floral scents as soon as the days start getting shorter. Although Coco Mademoiselle is usually my perfume of choice, I spritzed this Chloe scent on a whim whilst meandering through Debenhams the other week and absolutely adored it. Must make it mine soon, before the Boots security people start recognising me and blocking my path to the perfume section. Erm, I mean, it's not like I go to spray it daily or anything. I swear.
Brown leather(look) satchel - It's probably time to retire my Next satchel (bought in 2010!), I'm just yet to find one that matches up. I feel my one looks more expensive than it was but others I've bought since just look cheap (they were). But alas the straps are fraying and the buckles falling off and it's just looking rather unhappy at the moment. I tried to buy a duplicate on ebay the other day but I was pipped to the post by some other thrifty shopper wanting a £5 satchel, can you imagine? I just haven't quite found the one - that is, the one that is not a Mulberry Alexa/worth a small fortune. Come on High Street, you're letting me down. I've found a couple of options though, these ones from River Island and Accessorize could be possibilities...
Purse - I don't carry a purse. I know right? Instead it's a little old cardholder that I stuff train tickets, cards and the odd bit of cash into. Simple and fits into all bags. However, I feel I should really do the responsible thing and graduate to an actual purse these days - this little Accessorize offering should do the trick.
Jumper dresses - I went through a two year phase of living in sweater dresses at uni and have somehow managed to misplace ALL of them after multiple house moves. Time to replenish the stocks! Thankfully, they seem to be everywhere these days so I shouldn't struggle to find some I want. I think these will work well with my over knee boots and ankle boots alike. Both of these are from H&M.
Zoeva rose gold brush set - do I even need to justify this? I do? Okay... it's rose gold. It had me at rose gold. I need to rub them all over my face.
Of course this is by no means an extensive list - I have a whole Pinterest board devoted to the things I'm coveting! But these are the ones I can't get out of my head at the moment - Santa, are you listening...?
What's on your wishlist at the moment?
