Wishlist Wednesday

It is Wednesday today right? I’ve been so bad at keeping this up to date. Uni work is pretty hectic at the moment. Have exams next month and an essay that I still haven’t finished as well as a lit review for my dissertation which I’m doing next year.

Anyway I know I’ve done a lot of wishlists recently but as I’m still on a kinda of spending ban (I may have broken it this week. Expect a haul post soon) I thought I would start doing wishlist Wednesdays.

I am in love with Shop Dixi’s stuff. They have so many gorgeous things and I want it all. So here’s what I’m lusting after and may treat myself to after exams or for my birthday next month.

Shop Dixi Wishlist

1. Sterling Silver Wishbone Midi Ring £14

I already have the Rose Gold version of this ring and love it but I wear more silver jewellery so I really want to add this to my collection (see the midi rings I already own here)

2. Adrana Turquoise Amulet Ring £16

I adore the colour of this ring. Turquoise is my favourite colour and I love the chunkiness of this ring

3. Inhale, Exhale Ring Set £18

When my pain is bad my mum always tells me to just breathe and then distracts me by talking me through my breathing so I concentrate on that instead. These rings kind remind me of that.

4. Sterling Silver Plain Band Thumb Ring £14

I love thumb rings but the ones I own were cheap from new look and are now seriously tarnished and turn my thumb green but this sterling silver one is a reasonable price so this may be first on my list after exams,

5. Silas Arrow Wrap Bracelet £8

I have the arrow wrap midi ring which I love and this would look great with it. I’m a massive fan of bangles at the moment

6. I Love You To The Moon & Back Bracelet £25

As kids my mum always used to say this when she put us to bed and then we’d reply with well I love you to the moon and back times infinity. It was always a competition to see who could declare their love with the infinity first.

7. Little Luna Crescent Moon Necklace £8

I do love moons and I think it has to do with the whole Love you to the moon and back thing

8. Shyla Leaf Anklet £10

I’m a massive fan of anklets and my mum bought me a gorgeous gold one for Christmas one year and it is permanently attached to my ankle in the summer. However I’m to scared to wear it on holiday in case I lose it so I like to have a collection of backups and this ons is gorgeous

9. The Lucky One Horse Shoe Necklace £6

I used to own horses and horse shoe brings back good memories and its always good to have a lucky necklace.

Shoes Wishlist

I am a total shoe addict yet I never seem to wear shoes. No idea why but I kick them off at every opportunity. I think it might be because I sit in such weird positions and shoes just get in the way plus they keep my ankles in the position they’re supposed to be but that’s not where they sit naturally.

Anyway moving on from my weird ankles here are the shoes I am lusting after at the moment. Most of them are heels which is stupid because even though I adore them my body is not a massive fan of them and my mum tends to call them my wheelchair shoes.

Shoes Wishlist

 

Black Suede Effect Cork Wedges £22.99

I love wedges. They have to be the comfiest heels to wear and look great dressed up or down in summer. I couldn’t decide whether I preferred these in black or red. The red are gorgeous but I think black would go with more.

Black Double Strap Cut Out Platform Shoe Boots £27.99

I wasn’t a fan of the cut out boot trend when it started but I’m slowly being converted and these are really nice

Black Chunky strappy Heels £27.99

I need a pair of black heels for going out to wear with black tights. These are lovely and also come in a few other gorgeous colours

White Quilted Panel High Tops £30

I love high tops and mine are looking a bit tattered now. These white ones from River Island are lush although probably wouldn’t stay white for long.

Black Chelsea Block Heel Ankle Boot £14.99

I’ve been lusting after these for ages & haven’t got them yet because of my spending ban and in my moment of weakness they didn’t have my size. I am however using them as motivation to finish my essay and said if I finish it by next week I will treat myself to them

Black Quilted Panel High Tops £30

Black high tops might be easier to keep clean and they would go with black tights which I live in at the moment

Light Pink Chunky Platform Sandals £55

These are a gorgeous colour and would look great in summer however my bank balance and crappy ankles and hips say no

Black Double Buckle Chunky Block Heel Boots £29.99

I’m a huge fan of the chunky heeled boots this year as it is a heel I can wear and are pretty comfy meaning I can get some much needed extra height.

Light Orange Peep Toe Platform Sandals £55

Also a gorgeous colour

Gym stuff wishlist

I do have some posts that aren’t wishlists to come up soon, I just have to get around to writing them which hopefully I’ll do over the weekend. So for now here’s the gym/lounging around stuff I want in my life.

I really need some more gym stuff but that’s not something I particularly want to spend my precious pennies on when there are so many prettier and more exciting things I could buy. However Matalan & Asda have a pretty good selection of gym stuff for pretty low prices and they are great for bad pain days and hospital appointments.

I already own the front zip sports bra and it is better than my more expensive one and so much easier for my crappy shoulders. I cant have the pull over your head sports bras because they just result in me getting stuck and dislocating shoulders which isn’t particularly fun and kind of embarrassing when you have to get your mum to help you out of said predicament. This solves all problems and is super comfy. It also gets worn when my costochondritis is flaring but I have to go out in public so need a bra.

I also already own the grey cropped leggings. So far these have only been worn to the gym once as they are so comfy I tend to wear them on bad pain days and when certain clothing irritates my skin hence the need for another pair. These are also comfier than the £24 pair of karrimor ones I bought to start with.

I really want to try the asda leggings as they look super comfy too and the Matalan shorts look great for when the weather gets warmer. I also need some more gym tops as I only have one tatty vest top that I have to keep washing.

My gym wear always doubles up for the complete opposite of its intended purpose as they are great for when I cant get away with wearing pyjamas but just don’t have the energy to get dressed in real clothes.

Gym stuff wishlist

1. Active Vest Top £8

2. Front Zip Sports Bra £8

3. Active Bubble Hem T-Shirt £8

4. Athletic Works Neon Side Piped Cropped Leggings £10

5. Active Shorts £8

6. Active Crop Leggings £10

River Island Accessories Lust List

I’ve spent way too much money recently so decided to go on a bit of a spending ban but of course now that I can’t spend any money I want to buy everything. Luckily the thought of saving up for summer holidays is keeping me strong. Just be prepared for lots of wishlists and lust lists over the next few months.

So here’s what I am lusting after in River Island at the moment.

The pale pink quilted bag is gorgeous although it would be perfect if it had a longer strap. I couldnt decide which colour of the snake print bags I preferred. I think I’m leaning more towards the blue.

I’m obsessed with cat eye sunglasses after buying a pair last summer and these 3 are gorgeous colours. I adore the light green pair but I’m not a massive fan of brown lenses but the pink pair are perfect.

Pale pinks seem to be everywhere at the moment and I’m not normally a pastel girl but I am loving them this year. The black tote bag would never happen but I do love it, its the perfect size and would go with everything.

River Island Accessories Wish List

1. Light Pink Quilted Underarm Bag £28

2. Blue Leather Snake Satchel £45

3.  Pink Leather Snake Satchel £45

4. Black Cat Eye Sunglasses £13

5. Light Green Cat Eye Sunglasses £10

6. Light Pink Cat Eye Sunglasses £10

7. Cream Contrast Panel Doctors Bag £40

8. Light Pink Chain Trim Bowler Bag £37

9. Black Leather Metal Trim Tote Bag £80

River Island Kimono Wishlist

I am in love with the kimono trend. They make you look like you made way more effort with your outfit than you actually did. They can be casual or dressed up and they’re super comfy. I tried on Number 1 today and was so tempted to buy it as its gorgeous, even though Im not normally a flowers person, but I’m trying to save some pennies at the moment. I also tried on number 4 but wasn’t sure about the tassels. It did look really nice though.

Lime Crime Wishlist

I first came across Lime Crime on Marvelle’s blog over at Blog of Shadows. Go check her out, her blog is awesome and she has some amaazing Halloween looks up at the moment (including a killer Maleficient and Katy Perry including blue wig) if you need some inspiration.

So I have now fallen in love with the colours of available and I need some of these lipsticks in my life.

From the Candyfuture collection I really want (L-R) Poisonberry, Retrofuturist and Centrifuschia. These are £11.50 each

The ones I am in love with and must have are the Velvetine collection in Suedeberry and Red velvet which are also £11.50 each. I need Red velvet in my life I just don’t know if I can justify spending £11.50 on a lipstick for myself.

Has anyone tried anything from lime crime, if so what are your thoughts on the brand?

Should I treat myself?

Mozzypop Wish List

I started following this lovely lady on twitter before discovering her shop. Her stuff is amazing. Sadly however I am saving as much money as possible for holidays so I can’t treat myself to anything but as soon as I have pennies to spare I am heading on over and treating myself, probably to a bag when I can decide which one.  I am now torturing myself with online window shopping and finding loads of things I want but can’t have. So here’s what I am lusting after and you can find all her products here

Image

(All images from shopmozzypop.com )

Triple Stone ring £3.95 – I love the colour of the stones on this ring and the detail around them. It’s just gorgeous and a great price.

Monochrome Smile Tote Handbag £30.00 – This is probably (read definitely) the handbag I will end up treating myself to. It’s gorgeous and I just need it on my arm and as it’s monochrome it should go with everything. I need it in my life and I will have it in my life.

Cranberry Smile Tote Handbag £30.00 – I do also love the colour of this tote but I’m not sure Cranberry would go with everything as well as the monochrome. Still gorgeous though and you can never have too many bags.

Armour Turquoise Stone Ring £5.00 – You may have guessed that my favourite colour is turquoise. This ring is a gorgeous colour and would go really well with the nail polish I am wearing at the moment. I have such a weakness for rings.

Teal Faux Leather Satchel £29.00 – I love the colour of this satchel and was so tempted to buy it until I saw the monochrome tote and then I couldn’t decide and then I had no money. I would still pick the tote over this but this is an amazing colour and would be a lovely piece of arm candy.

So go check out her shop, blog or follow her on twitter. She’s lovely and you will be tempted to buy something.
