Wishlist #2

Sunday, August 18, 2013

As a recent graduate entering the scary real-life world of job hunting and money woes, a lot of my time lately has been spent online, imaginary shopping, rather than outside actually doing it. I've been compiling and pinning lists of things that I want to buy in the future, in an attempt to subdue the obsessive shopper in me and provide me with a little job searching motivation. Here's a small sample of what I'm coveting at the moment...

Now, if you're a regular reader you will know that I am very much pug obsessed. This Catseye Pug Bag has caught my eye in several shops over recent weeks. It's perfect as a wash bag or large makeup bag, and the huge pug image adorning the front is a definite day brightener. I also recently found this Pug Pattern iPhone case by Gemma Correll, an illustrator who creates the cutest and most accurate pug cartoons and books (seriously - if you're a pug fanatic I cannot recommend A Pug's Guide to Etiquette enough). The colourful case features an adorable selection of partying pugs - what's not to like?!

Moving onto another of my favourite things: beauty. The Balm's NUDE 'tude has been on my radar for a while - although the crooked design annoys me to no end, the shades are really beautiful. I've also been on the lookout for a new perfume, and fancied something a little different to the popular, more mainstream fragrances that I usually go for. I have a rollerball version of the Fresh Brown Sugar Perfume which I bought in New York earlier this year, and I've been regretting not buying the full bottle since the day I landed back in the UK. Containing notes of lemon, tangerine, caramel and sugared magnolia, it's the perfect mix of sweet and citrus and is unlike any other perfume I own. Unfortunately it's not as easy to get your hands on over here as we only have a single Fresh store in London, but I'm confident that this perfume will be the first thing I pick up next time I'm in the capital! Another two perfumes I've had my eye on are Jo Malone Earl Grey & Cucumber, and L'Occitane Verbena. Finally, a pair of Shu Uemura eyelash curlers have been high up on my wish list for a while, and the recent hype around Origins No Puffery Cooling Roll-On has had me dying to give it a go.

What's on your wishlist at the moment?
