May Wishlist

Will there ever come a time when I don't have some sort of a wishlist on the go? The answer is of course, no.


1) Marc Jacobs mouse flats. Sigh. I've had my eye on these for a few years but I'm particularly in love with the gold sparkly ones you can see above. Unfortunately they don't seem to be on sale anymore and eBay being a cruel mistress only has them in EVERY other size other than my own. Gah. This season there's a cute pink slingback version of these, which you can see HERE, I just think they're better in the super sparkly version.
2) Stila Colour Balm Lipstick in Valentina (orange poppy), HERE. OK, so this is very orange, clearly but it just looks like such a beautiful shade, Summery and glossy but still highly pigmented. Stila make up is so lovely, I've always loved their glosses and lipsticks so am really interested in trying these new products from the brand, including..
3) THIS Convertible Colour Trio in Cool. These cream blush/lip colours have kind of reached legendary status in the old blogosphere and for good reason- long lasting, beautiful, multi-tasking shades that are easy to use and suit most skin tones. Lovely. 
4) I've actually been on the dreaded hunt for a new bikini (wishful thinking), but as I have to do it on line, it hasn't proved hugely fruitful so far. Having said that, I have quite the love for all things stripey and all things pink so THIS swimsuit from Ted Baker ticks those boxes as well as having a nice 50's style to it. It is crazy prices for swim wear though so I may just make a trip to Penney's at some stage instead..
Let me know in the comments if any of these would make your wishlist too!

  2. Dunnes actually has some really nice swimsuits and bikinis this year. I was always a bikini gal til I had Caelen and got the dreaded jelly belly. I was surprised at the choice they had there, might be worth checking out!

  5. I haven't seen those sparkly shoes anywhere but there are loads of other versions on the Nieman Marcus website and on shopbop.com. I will never, ever be caught next nor near a bikini but do try Dunnes, or Asos!

    2. Typical me, I only want the one feckin pair that I cant find! :) Asos has a good selection too- I was interested in the high waisted 50's style ones til I asked himself did they look like a nappy..he said yes..so that's obviously a no to that.

  8. Lads I actually have a pair of those mouse ballet flats. They're silver leather and they're fab. I love the look of the lipstick but I think it's just a little too like my Clinique Butter Shine Pink A Boo lipstick that I wear to death to warrant the price of the YSL. Must have a squizz at them and maybe might treat myself to a different colour one, even if only for the amazing case.
