August Wishlist

Here is a list of items that I am listing after this August. If only I could afford to buy them all!

Olympus Pen E-PL7 Camera:

I first saw this camera on a blog a few months ago and have been in love with it ever since. The adorable retro design is just so stylish! It's slim line so can fit in a handbag and has inbuilt Wi-Fi so I can send the images I take directly to my phone (and upload to Instagram!) I have seen fantastic quality photos taken with the Olympus Pen and you have the option of interchangeable lenses for different effects, which you can buy separately. It seems to have become almost the 'IT' Blogger camera of late but I don't mind following this trend because it really does look dam amazing! I've been saving up for this one as I need to make it mine. 

Mac Lipstick
I only own one Mac Lipstick, Brave Red, and I love it. The texture, high pigment and long wear make me really want to invest in more! I've been loving the swatches of this gorgeous coral/pink colour called Vegas Volt I've been seeing in blogs and magazines. It looks like a very 'me' shade an I reckon it would go well with my skin tone.  


Oasis Tan Blazer:

I've been appreciating more and more lately the versatility of having a couple of really good Blazers in your wardrobe. A blazer can be thrown on over pretty much any outfit and instantly you're rocking that smart-casual look! I have a couple of printed Blazers but I've been looking out for a plain one (or two!). This Tan Blazer from Oasis would go so well over a lot of the printed tops that are out the right now but will also see you through the autumn when you want to jazz up your basic jeans and boots combo.


Blogger Diary:

I first saw someone posting about these Blog Planner's on Instagram and Twitter. Not only do they look so pretty but also incredibly useful! I am a big lover of organisation anyway but since starting this blog I feel I need to keep track of everything and have all my plans and ideas in one place. It has sections for monthly favourites, wishlists, hauls and stats. You can choose which month you want your planner to start so can get one at any time of the year and you can also personalise the front with your own blog name or quote! Must have.

Bobbi Brown Hydrating Eye Cream:
For a while now I've been thinking I need to add an eye cream to my current skincare regine. Usually I just lightly dot a little of my moisturiser (Elemis Pro Collagen Marine Cream) around my eye area after I moisturise but I've just had a birthday so it may be time to step it up! I have heard really good things about this Hydrating Eye Cream from Bobbi Brown, that it contains vitamins & aloe vera to relieve tired eyes and is nice and light yet really does the job (check, check, check!). If I try this, I will be sure to review it on the blog.


Triangl Swimwear:

I've seen an awful lot of my Instagram feed taken up with pictures of people wearing these bikinis by Triangl Swimwear and they all look stunning! I love the two-tone colour blocking and some of them are crochet too. Although we haven't had much bikini weather this summer in the UK I'd still love one of these even if I have to save it until next summer. I'm eyeing up the coral/turquoise one called Bubblegum Blue and the mint/pink one called Flamingo Fling.

New Look Shoes: 
I have always had trouble with shoes! I like them but they don't necessarily like me (or my feet). I've always really wanted to be able to wear heels but unfortunately due to my Ehlers Danlos my joints are very unstable, which causes me pain including my feet. I do have a couple of pairs of wedges that are comfy and can wear for a reasonable amount of time but I do generally just stick to flats. However I really want to try and find a pair that I can wear for my blog photo shoots now, so the search is on! I feel like a nice pair of nude court shoes would be really useful and go with allsorts. These New Look Stone Suedette Pointed Court Shoes look chic but also not too high. Even if I can only manage to wear them for short periods of time! If I still can't manage the heels though I found these Stone Pointed Ankle Strap Pumps from New Look's comfort range, they have extra padding on the bottoms plus an ankle strap which will help keep my ankles stabilised. If anyone has any suggestions on where I can find some comfy supportive heels then please comment below!
