Spring is a time for blush tones, lighter makeup and basically a few new treats! So I thought I'd create a somewhat premature wish list full of some of my favourite recent finds and loves.
Charlotte Tilbury Light Wonder Foundation - £32.00 HEREMy current Winter foundation is in fact Charlotte Tilbury's Magic Foundation as it's just full coverage heaven. I can't get enough of it, in fact I dedicated an entire blog post to it! Side note: I'm not one to spend on high end foundations as I truly believe the high street do a good enough job (especially Bourjois, Rimmel & L'Oreal) but after trying a sample of CT's Magic Foundation I was blown away and had to get it, I even convinced my sister to picked it up after forcing her to apply it and seeing the magic for herself. However come Spring/Summer I know my glorious Magic Foundation will be too high coverage and something slightly more sheer and dewy is in order. This is where Wonder Foundation steps in as from looking at many a before and after image of the foundation application on Google I could instantly see why it's a popular choice for many. Flattering on all skin tones and types, perfectly dewy and not to mention light reflective in all the right areas to give a radiant glow to the face. I'm in!
Philosophy Amazing Grace 60ml - £33.00 HEREThis was a scent I picked up by chance in a Boxing Day sale many years ago now and since then it's been a re-purchase situation. You know the first day in Spring when you decide to brave opening all the windows and put fresh bedding on the bed? Well this scent encapsulates that very smell. Basically this is the cleanest and softest of scents that smells firstly of fresh linen with a floral hint. Just perfect for Spring and perking up your mood. Sadly I used my last drop in December (I use it all year round because I love it so much) so this will be a definite re-purchase very soon.
NYX Makeup Tricks of the Trade Set - £25.00 HERENow this isn't Spring related as such but I randomly came across this product on Feel Unique last week and may have let out an audible "ooo". I don't know about you, but I've never seen a similar set from NYX before! If you love the brand, and who doesn't, then this is a great way to explore more products. The set includes 7 products which is good value for money in my opinion and contains some star products such as the Liquid Illuminator, Matte Setting Spray and Butter Gloss in Creme Brulee. Should I treat myself to this?
Matalan Dreamer Sweater - £16.00 HEREI spotted this literal dream of a sweater in Hannah Gale's recent Matalan Haul video and instantly thought 'Boden', which if it was from Boden would cost around the £70 mark! So first, well done Matalan! This light knit would look perfect paired with your favourite skinny jeans, a pleated midi skirt or even with a shirt underneath. Such a lovely versatile piece that I think I need in my wardrobe this coming Spring/Summer.
Village Candle Lemon Pound Cake - £12.99 HEREVillage Candle candles are without a doubt my favourite candle brand, yes, even over Yankee Candle, which I agree they do look identical to. The reason for this is that they create the most true-to-scent candles I've come across, which really blow Yankee Candle out of the water if I'm honest. I'm currently burning a Honey Creme candle from the brand which is divine but I know I need Lemon Pound Cake in my life come Spring. I've already tried this out in a small votive candle so I know that it's incredibly yummy but also light thanks to the lemon, the perfect combination for me come Spring. If you haven't tried anything from Village Candle but love Yankee Candle I really do urge you to try them out - you will be impressed, I promise!
ASOS Scallop Shopper Bag with Removable Clutch - £25.00 HERECome a new season I always feel a new everyday bag is in order. I absolutely love ASOS own brand handbags and in fact own two from this line but without the scalloped detail. These bags are roomy, well made, go with all outfits and the removable clutch makes a great large makeup bag or clutch if you want to take it out! Another dreamy item perfect for Spring!
Have I tempted you with anything here?
Also please tell me it's not too early to be planning for Spring!
