Ahhh Spring is almost here! With less than a month away to a glimpse of warmer weather my mind is thinking of soft pastels and interior changes.
After the stuffiness of winter all I want to do is find that amazing 'your skin but better' light foundation and paint my nails in pretty pastel shades. So here is a little wish list of things I'd love to treat myself to come the end of March.
Celine Luggage Inspired Tote Bag
£19.99 - eBay UK Seller here
I have yet to get my hands on this style of bag but after consideration I decided the monochrome version I'd been eyeing up looked a little cheap and I knew I would eventually go off it. However this beautiful blush beige toned bag is perfect for spring through to summer. On a side note I looked up the mini Celine Luggage Tote out of curiousity and really... £1,200+?! Craziness! I will be sticking to this £20.00 knock-off version, thank you.
Bourjois 123 Perfect CC Cream
£9.99 - ASOS here or Boots/Superdrug
This got popped on to my to-buy list after seeing Lisa Eldridge use it on Sophie Dahl here. I'm a huge fan of Lisa Eldridge as she seriously knows her stuff and I always trust her recommendations. Plus I love all the base products Bourjois have come out with (Healthy Mix Foundation being one of my favourite foundations) so this is at the top of my list of things to buy now. Hopefully my spring tinted moisturiser (I'm avoiding stating it's a CC cream or it will annoy me!).
YSL Pivoine Crush Palette
Not yet released in the UK
Ahhh hello beautiful palette that probably won't ever be mine (because I'm a scrooge and it's Limited Edition). I don't even know if it will be released in the UK! This was something I just ooo'd and ahhh'd at when I came across the promo images. The shades in this palette aren't generally my kind of colours but for spring I could see them really working on the eyes. Also the palette feels very Pantone colour of the year inspired. Just stunning.
Beauty at Home: Aerin Lauder
£38.10 - Amazon here
This wonderful coffee table book is a mixture of memoirs and interior style from Aerin Lauder, granddaughter of the late Estée Lauder. From looking inside the book on Amazon I can see myself loving this book from the beautiful photography to Aerin's style and of course the wonderful memories of Estee Lauder. A unique book that I'd love to purchase... though maybe when it comes down in price!
Pink Grapefruit Body Mist
£7.50 - The Body Shop here
Since trying out The Body Shop Body Mists last spring/summer I have been a total fan. My favourite scent for s/s has to be Moringa but this spring I will be alternating it with Pink Grapefruit, another lovely light scent. A great low-cost way of picking up a new fragrance each season I think.
Ted Baker Printed Makeup Bag
£25.00 - ASOS here
Ted Baker have just released their new patterns for spring/summer and this specific makeup bag I'm just in love with! Price wise this is a little indulgent for a makeup bag, especially when you own a tower of Muji acrylic drawers like I do. However this is something that will probably going on my birthday list in May as I know it will last me years.
L'Oreal Color Riche Nail Polishes
£4.99 each - Superdrug/Boots
From left to right we have - Perle De Jade here, Dating Coral here, Opera Ballerina here. Three perfect shades for upcoming spring. I only own a handful of L'Oreal Color Riche polishes but I've always been more than impressed with the shades and application and these shades just look perfect and creamy. You will be mineeee!
Now I just have to wait for Spring to arrive *Sonic foot tap*!
