I tend to compile these little lists of things I'm lusting after in my phone or if it's really good-in my head. So I thought I'd share my current list of wants here as well.
For the home:
I'm really after a scent diffuser (apparently they last ages, look pretty and don't run the risk of burning your house down like candles do, so you know- bonus). I haven't seen any around but my sister assures me Max Benjamin do lovely ones, so I'll be having an auld look about town for them:
I'm a huge fan of Not on the High Street and follow them on Facebook, which alerted me today to the existence of this little beauty:
This is a print by artist Freya Ete whose work "portrays a forever optimistic view of the world". How sweet. I am seriously in love with this.
For a while now I've been driven demented trying to find a classic trench coat that would be well fitting, a neutral shade so that it'd go with everything and one that would not make me look like Inspector Gadget on a bad day. Behold:
Ding! Ding! Ding! I think we may have a winner.
To go with my new ladylike trench, I will obviously require a new ladylike bag...ahem.
Yes, I am aware that this costs 159 sterling and would probably only fit a miniature lipstick and some spare change but the force of beauty is strong in this one and she calls to me...unfortunately, this appears to be sold out on the Ted Baker website, which is a shame but it also means that I'll now have to devote valuable time in the future to checking the site to see if it comes back in stock. Le Sigh.
This is EOS smooth sphere lip balm in "Summer fruits". I recently bought this in "Honeysuckle/Honeydew" and fell in love. That may be a gross exaggeration of the relationship I have with a lip balm but you get the idea. I'll be reviewing the melon flavour soon so I won't go into too much detail here, except to say that this product is 100% natural, is housed in hygienic packaging (no disgusting finger-balm dipping for me!) and has made my lips really soft! Plus it's only 5.75 euros on the beauty emporium website, which is a bit of a bargain really. It comes in other flavours but I think Summer fruits sounds rather appealing, what with the time of year and all.
C'est ca. I'm sure I'll come up with plenty more things I want in the not too distant future (all it really takes is for me to wander around with my eyes open and a new list has already somehow formed, as if by osmosis).
