Monday Wishlist #5

Monday, 12 November 2012

I feel like I've been super reserved with my wishlist this week, just 4 things that have really caught my eye. Since it's coming up for Christmas, I'm trying my best not to lust after much, and concentrate my shopping lust on presents for others - honest!

The first thing on my wishlist this week is this dark red studded shoulder top which I actually saw on my friend Holly's fashion blog. It's from River Island and costs £22. It looks like the perfect top to throw on with a pair of jeans, winter boots and a cosy jacket for some effortless autumn style.

Another thing on my wishlist this week is the Bumble and Bumble Curl Reactivating Mist which retails at £14.25 on LookFantastic. I've heard amazing things about Bumble and Bumble, but I haven't tried any of their products. I recently decided it would be a great idea to cut my own hair, but I ended up hacking away at it with blunt kitchen scissors and funnily enough, it ended disastrously. My friend managed to salvage what was left of it and I'm now left with shoulder length hair so I feel like I need to get some tousled waves in it to give it some volume and life, so I really want to try this mist!

Thirdly, I'm eyeing up these Crest whitening strips like there's no tomorrow! I've never had white teeth and, being a smoker and caffeine lover, my teeth are suffering. I can't find a direct link to these, but they retail on Amazon for around £11-15. I've heard that they can make your teeth sensitive, but I've also heard and seen some great results from them so I'd be willing to put up with a little sensitivity if they work!

Lastly, I'm after yet another Topshop lipstick, this time it's Beguiled. I'm slowly but surely getting more adventurous with my lip colours - I even came home from work with a bright red lip last week! Now that it's cold and icy outside, I'm really not feeling my corals and pinks, and I'm feeling brave enough to try a deep red/wine/berry shade. I love the formula of Topshop's lipsticks, so I think I'll have a wee swatch of this next time I see it. My only worry is that because I'm so pale and my hair is dark now, I'll look like a goth/vampire/dead. Only one way to find out!

As well as lusting after things for myself this week, I've been desperately trying to hunt down some Christmas present ideas. I think I've settled on buying lots of Lush goodies for my family to try and convert them.

What are you eyeing up this week? Do you still treat yourself in the run-up to Christmas?



  1. crest white strips are amazing and they do genuinely work if you use them once a year or at a push, every six months! i wouldn't recommend using a whitening toothpaste (like blanx) with it though, or it will make your teeth way too sensitive! that's just my opinion though :)

  2. Oops! I once decided to cut my hair myself, and the results were not pretty. I might have had a few glasses of wine beforehand and had convinced myself I knew how to layer my hair...cue wedge-head bob with rats tails dangling down underneath. Never again!
    The studded top is gorgeous, another thing to pop on my own ever-expanding wishlist!
