My Summer Wish List!

Just a short one about the products and items I'm reallllly wanting for this summer!


Something resembling this outfit will definitely be worn by yours truly this coming summer. I love hats and as a redhead I do quite need them in the summer to protect the skin on my face - I wouldn't get one like this, but minus the hat I love this outfit!

I have black skinnies. I have blue heels. I NEED a jumper like this to complete this outfit, it's so me! Love!

This top. I love it so much. When I have some extra cash, it will be mine... oh yes, it will be mine!

I love this nightie, perfectly light and loose and cute for summer!

Heeled boots. Saw a woman the other day wearing some and they were soooo gorgeous! Perfect for the endless winter!


Korres lip balm. Still not sure what colour I want it in, but I'm leaning towards Jasmine!

Tom Ford lipstick in Spanish Pink. I've heard great things about the Tom Ford lipstick (just as well considering its price!) but this colour is just so beautiful, plus the packaging is gorgeous!

Bobbi Brown creamy concealer. Been after this for a while, but still haven't got my hands on it! I'd want to go to a counter and get the proper colour and haven't been near one in a while. Same for the Nars Sheer Matte foundation.

The Clarisonic. Just because it's awesome. Definitely for when you're rolling in money though, it's not exactly cheap!

Face of Australia translucent powder. I've heard this is really good and doesn't make you look all weird and white when when you have a picture taken with flash. It's really fine and leaves the face feeling flawless.  It's really hard to get here in the UK though!

Leibster Award!

I've been nominated for the Leibster Award by the beautiful Katie, yay!

The Leibster Award is basically to advertise those lesser known blogs with less than 200 followers to help get their name out there and support what they are doing.

'Leibster' means dearest in German (awh!). One nominated, there are a set of rules the nominated blogger must follow.

The rules state that a nominee must link back to the blogger from whom they received a nomination.  The nominee will then write 11 random facts about themselves and then answer the 11 questions which have been set for them. They will then in turn nominate fellow bloggers that they think deserve some recognition and pose 11 questions to them. This is a great chance for fellow bloggers to get to know each other and have some fun!

So, let's get started!
