An Update and Weekend Wish List

Hello gorgeous girls!  I am so, so sorry for going AWOL over the last few weeks.  This is down to a combination of finishing exams, a technology breakdown, a few random road trips and leaving Manchester for the final time.  It was very emotional and yes, I did cry!

But moving upwards and onwards, I am now back in leafy Warwickshire for the foreseeable future and am happily settled in my gorgeous family home.  Things are nowhere near calm however as we are in the midst of decorating and stacks of DIY is calling but this does mean an entirely new bedroom - inspiration is flooding in from weheartit!

As for me, I am in the graduand limbo before graduation in a few weeks and trying to relax but constantly finding jobs to apply to - why is being an adult so hard?!

I am excited about the prospect of a 'real job' though - I have no idea what I really want to do so the sky is the limit which is pretty exciting!  I have some amazing things in the pipeline but I don't want to jinx them by saying too much...

However, I cannot stop myself from mentally planning what I might buy - typical girl - with my first real salary....

YSL Rouge Volupte 

Oooh 1 or the whole collection - I just need some YSL in my life!  I have always had a mental debate with myself over whether these are worth the cash but I have fully decided - YES THEY BLOODY WELL ARE!

 Dressing Table 
I've never had a proper dressing table (I make myself sound so deprived..!) but with my room being re-done, it is something that I really, really want!  I'm torn between a Venetian style like pictured or a white shabby chic version... What do you reckon?!

Lily Flame Candles
What girl's room would be complete without a stupidly large array of scented candles?!  I love this brand - the scents are amazing and they look so cute too.

Chanel 2.55

One day, one day..!!

MAC Mineralize Skin Finish Natural

 I have a love-hate relationship with powder and feel I've tried every one available in the drugstore.  This is therefore the next logical step...MAC have never let me down before though so I have high hopes!  I am excited by the light coverage that it can provide - I am hoping that over some tinted moisturiser it will be all I need when I'm tanned.

Some are realistic and some are very much not - but then a girl can dream..!

    That dressing table is like my DREAM dressing table! If only i didn't have to share a house with the future house would be soooo feminine/shabby chic!! xxx

  2. I saw the YSL lippy on, for a discount but I don't know if I'd recommend them; I've been six days waiting on mine :/

  3. I have already decided that I am going to get a YSL lippie. Yup, it's decided that I NEED it in my life!

  4. Congrats on finishing uni!!!!

    I am lusting after a Chanel 2.55 bag also but at the moment its totally out of the question. I would love a real dressing table to but at the moment my room is taken up with my desk for studying

  5. I'm with you on a lot of these things.. especially the chanel!

  6. I love this post!! I really want more YSL lippies (even though I don't need them lol!) Good luck finding a job :) xxx

  7. I'm glad you enjoyed it! The YSL lippies are definitely first on my list...they are all I can think about! xx

  8. I just can't wait to sit down and do my make up properly all in one place! I really can't decide what style though - maybe both?!! haha xx

  9. It's definitely the best bag out there! One day I'll get my mitts on one hopefully! xx

  10. Thank you! It still feels very surreal!

    I reckon if I start saving now, the 2.55 might be mine in say...10 years?! Ha I'm such a dreamer!! xx

  11. This is exactly how I feel! Now that I've decided I want some of them, I NEED them now!! xx

  12. Ah thank you for the tip! I need to decide what colours I want and then try and find them online somewhere...I may give beautybay a miss though if they take a while? xx

  13. Ah mine's so gorgeous but probably has a very large price tag too!! xx
