Birthday Wishlist 2014

Happy Sunday everyone! I'm turning 22 on the 22nd (hooray numbers!) so I thought it would only be fitting to show you all what I would like to receive! Now, obviously some of these ideas are waaay out of my student price range - hell, they're probably waaay out of my friends/parents' price range too - but a girl can dream, right?

I've wanted a new pair of glasses forever so I thought I would treat myself to some Ray Bans. I'm used to wearing contact lenses most days but I want to give my eyes a bit of a rest and invest in some beautiful frames that will last me a long time. The frames I've chosen are the RB 5285 2034 in black/transparent, but I was torn between these and the dark havana version. In the end the black ones won out; the safer option, you might say! This is a bit of cheat on a wishlist, because I've actually already ordered them and my parents are giving me some money towards them as my present. Well, that and the fact that I just got my car too - a gift that "is worth about 20 birthdays" according to my mum, which I totally agree with!

Continuing my Chanel obsession, I would absolutely love a full size version of Chanel Chance eau de toilette spray. I can't tell you the amount of times I've loitered around the Chanel counter, spraying on sample cards (and my wrists) to get a whiff of this gorgeous fragrance. The scent is light yet fruity and the freshness stays with you long after the spritz. Also on my list is another beauty product: Illamasqua Cream Pigment in Hollow. I've heard a lot about this product, and how it's fantastic as a contour for paler skin tones so I would love to get this, along with another pot of Hydra Veil - my holy grail base!

I've also popped this Mint Green Floral iPhone 5 Case on the list. It's from a lovely shop on Etsy called FieldTrip, which is so cute and thrifty I can't even handle it! I have tons of bits and bobs from the shop favourited in the hopes that one day I can buy them all. When I get my own place you can bet that I will!

Next, I have a Topshop number. Isn't it funny; I used to HATE denim jackets with a passion. I thought that they should've been left in the 1990s with B*Witched (remember all that double denim? C'est La Vie indeed!) Now, however, I've fallen in love with this beautiful MOTO Vintage Borg Denim Jacket. Light wash denim is now my calling! The final item on my wishlist is, of course, a designer handbag. Can't help myself, can I? This time it's the Michael Kors Jet Set Medium Travel Tote. Such a simple bag that would go with absolutely anything, I just know I'd use this every day for the rest of my life if it was mine!

I hope you enjoyed!

    2. I used to have the same opinion about the denim jacket but recently I've seen people wear it and now think they look really nice!
      Really like your picks, especially the Michael Kors Jet Set Handbag, seems to be one of those bags you wear with everything!

    1. SO lovely! Ah, my mum's favourite fragrance is Coco Mademoiselle. My dad always tries to get it in duty free for her because it's a fraction cheaper. Smelling good is expensive, haha! Xx
