Wishlist #1 | Beauty & Fashion

The whole skort trend has been going around for a while now and this has been on my wishlist for quite some time. However as the supposedly warmer seasons are coming up, skorts are going to be such a perfectly practical piece to wear effortlessly for both day and night. I know I most definitely would be pairing them with a plain white cami and some bright pinky coral flats or sandals.
Topshop brought out their new collection of makeup a few months back and ever since they did this is the one blush that I have been eyeing up. You can probably see why, it's freaking gorgeous! The colour is the perfect all rounder as it's pink but with the right amount of mauvey tones also it's not the typical spring coral blush. Personally I think this would suit all skin tones but especially the lighter skinned of us as lighter shades of pinks and peach tend to suit us.
              3. Topshop Lattice Waist Florence Dress
When I saw this dress I instantly fell in love because well what's not to love? It's so simple and of course it's a timeless little black dress, this is one of those dresses that is so versatile because it's the classic skater shape so it can be dressed up and down in so many different ways. I would love to style this with a denim jacket or a floaty kimono.
I've wanted a cardigan like this for so long now, I love the 'salt and pepper' textured effect as it would just add a little bit more interest to any outfit. The slouchy style of this cardigan just creates a relaxed feel.
            5.  Topshop Hyper Blue Wash Joni Jeans
I already have one pair of Joni jeans, I love them but I couldn't get my normal size of a W2834 because I found that these jeans in particular came up extremely tight in the leg so they were a bit uncomfortable in that area. However, I love this colour because they are more interesting and they are a brighter blue which is perfect for the upcoming seasons.
                                      6. NARS Sheer Glow Foundation in Siberia/ Mont Blanc
Every other Youtube video I watch includes this foundation, I've heard so many good things about it and it literally seems like the perfect foundation for me as I love a light to medium but dewy coverage. This is definitely going to be top of my birthday list.
I love this shirt, I think it's actually sold out on the Miss Selfridge website at the moment but I still want to get my hands on it. It's the perfect shirt for me as it still includes the dark background but also has the added bonus of the pop of colour with the flowers.
         8. L'Oreal Paris Lumi Magique Primer
Again, this is another one that I've heard a lot about on Youtube, I'm really curious to try a primer and this one looks and sounds amazing. I always see it when I go into Boots but for some reason I'm always too apprehensive to pick it up in case I hate it.
                     9. LoveMyBijoux Floral Mint Green Necklace
I heard about this amazing jewellery brand from Instagram (of all places), so I went onto their website and straight away I full on fell in love with this necklace. I think it was the fact that it is mint green but also it is just beautiful.
                                10. ASOS Placement Ombre Floral Bandeau Bikini Top
This is one of those items that I have been looking at for quite sometime and I still want it as much as I did when I first saw it. I love it, bandeau bikinis are lovely and the pattern and colours on this one is particularly amazing. I don't really like the bottoms that go with this so if I was to purchase this I'd need to wear some plain black bikini bottoms with it.
                11. Miss Selfridge White Sheer and Solid Top
I've always loved tops with that little feminine touch, this one has that as it has sheer stripes running down it. White is becoming a big colour for Spring/Summer so this would definitely be one to wear to fit in with the trend. I think this is also a really simple item that isn't too fussy so it's easy to style.
I have been looking for a bronzer for what feels like forever, I know about so many different ones but when I've swatched them they look way to orange and dark for my skin tone. So when I came across this one from Topshop, I was super happy as it is a perfect light bronze shade. I need this, it's going to the top of my 'to buy asap' list.
This is my first wishlist, I hope to do several of these (I was thinking maybe I'll do them monthly) as I've always loved reading other blogger's wishlists just because they usually make me really lust after an item. Unfortunately I very rarely get the chance to buy the items on my ever growing wishlist because there really is a lot and I don't think I can quite justify the large impact it would have on my bank balance, no matter how beautiful and totally worth it the items are!
I have to admit this wishlist has a rather large haul of items on, but with my birthday coming up quite soon this was a fitting post to do. Over the past few months I've really been loving the new trends coming in for spring and summer, even though I'm usually a monochrome kind of girl some of this seasons colours are actually quite me. However as always I've also been finding lots of beauty products that I long to buy and really want to get my hands on but sadly can't afford (sigh). The products featured in this wishlist I am in doubt that I will actually get my hands on but if I do, I will be a very happy girl.
I hope you enjoyed reading about the items I am currently wishing over and I hope it has made you want to go out and buy them (sorry!) If you have any questions feel free to leave them down below, also if you just want to leave a comment, I'd love to hear from you. Thanks for reading.

Much Love, Kiera x
