Wednesday Wishlist – On a Friday!

I know I know, I’ve been rubbish, to make it up to you I have put together this lush list of candles that I’m thinking about forgoing food for…

Candles1. The White Company Geranium Candle £26.00 I love the white on white design here!

2. Amara Jonathan Adler Peace Studded Candle £125.00 – Wow oh WOW! I need this in my life, tacky – oh yeh, but so cool! But at that price, again wow oh WOW!!

3. H&M Candle Collection £3.99 – A fab range in lots of colours at a great price!

4. Diptique £40.00 I still can’t believe I haven’t bought one of these coveted babies yet, however, I can’t decide if the scents are too strong for me, I also can’t decide which one I like best!

5. Jo Malone Grapefruit Candle £39.00 – Another one that thus far has escaped my grasp, although admittedly I don’t think I have ever even sniffed one ; o GASP!

6. Marks and Spencer Large Coconut Candle £12.00 – Coconut, enough said – yummy!

Too pricey? Primark have some gorgeous Vanilla and Coconut ones which I’ve been loving recently – so  much so that I’ve picked up the glass jar one, two pillar ones, the tea lights, and the diffuser! They just smell so yummy, and are actually the most scented candles – without being headachey – that I have ever come across, I will definitely be stocking up on these bad boys! And at £2 a pop – complete bargain!!

What are your fave scents and brands of candles?

Wednesday Wishlist: Hair Care…

It’s that time again, the time when I literally list the things I’m coveting (for this week anyways), and want to spend all my money on.

This week it’s hair care!

I can’t tell you how much I wish for long, thick, glossy, gorgeous hair…

  1. Living Proof No Frizz Shampoo and Conditioner range – £20 each – Space.NK
  2. Bumble and bumble Thickening Spray – £21.50 – Space.NK
  3. ORIBE Impermeable Anti Humidifying Spray – £37 (The texturising spray is so raved about, that I thought I’d go for this bad boy) – Space.NK
  4. 3″ More Inches Life Extending Shampoo, Conditioner, and Pre-wash Kit – £52 – Look Fantastic – This is the cheapest I’ve found it!

I’ve decided I’m going to get the 3 More Inches set to see how this works, obviously I’ll let you all know, but maybe I could buy the travel kit at £22.05 (this one is cheaper at Beauty Bay) instead?!

What are your top tips for keeping hair n great condition, as well as possibly adding on an inch or 2, or 3?!

Wednesday Wishlist – Skin Care…

I Thought I would throw in a Wednesday Wishlist for y’all today as I haven’t done one in a while…

Basically I have been religiously checking Bloglovin recently, as well as watching lots of vides on You tube, which means I have come across lots and lots of ‘2013 favourites’ posts and videos.

What’s interested me most, apart from all of the make-up (obvs) is all of the skin care products that I’ve seen. I have compiled quite a list let me tell ya!

A blog, and You tube channel that really sticks out and appeals to me is Vivianna Does Make-up, it’s my new go to blog. I dare to think about much she spends on beauty products! But it saves me from doing it : )

So from some of her testimonials the following items are what I’m coveting at the moment…

no-info

La Roche-Posay Hydraphase UV Intense Rich – £13.20 – Escentual

Clarins Liquid Bronze Self Tanner – £14.39 – Escentual

Dr Andrew Weil for Origins Mega-Bright Dark Circle Minimizer – £32.00 – Origins Website

Indeed Laboratories Hydraluron Moisture Booster – £24.99 – Boots

Bioderma Sensibio H2O Micelle Solution – £11.69 – Escentual

The Pro Hygiene Collection Make-up Brush Cleanser – £9.00 – Cult Beauty

There are a few more but I have in fact bought, or ordered them so will be reviewing these once I’ve decided how much I love them!

What are your most treasured skin care products? And do you have any specific blogs that you use as your beauty bible?

Frends with Benefits an Unexpected Christmas Wish …

Now now, reign in that filthy mind!

I’m obviously talking about the new Frends Headphones range “Frends with Benefits” in collaboration with Rebecca Minkoff.

If you’re anything like me you’ll be lusting after ANY pair of these little beauts, not only because they are soooo gorgeous, BUT because normal headphones (e.g iphone standard ones) really hurt my poor lil’ ears!

I didn’t think headphones could look so comfy, or get any prettier than the Frends Oil Slick, or Layla, and Taylor (bigger than the Layla) Rose Gold versions, which are available at Avenue 32.

Rose Gold

But no, enter these intensely beautiful babies…

Frends with Benefits

The Frends with Benefits range in collaboration with Rebecca Minkoff, are, at the moment, only available in America via Apple.com or for pre-order at Nordstrom.

Now for the Frends with Benefits range you must own the Taylor frame (I am unsure as to whether it has to be the gold frame), you can then simply swap the caps to suit your mood!

Now they are not, by any stretch of the imagination cheap: Layla – £130, Taylor – £170, Oil Slick £140 all Avenue 32, and Friends with Benefits $249.95, which works out around £152 at Apple, Nordstrom’s are coming in at £162, BUT this is the only place (at the moment) that I can find the different caps, which are £32.39 a pair.
But I think the beauty of all of these may just be worth the cost?!
Head over to Refinery 29 for your chance to win your very own pair of the Frends With Benefits headphones. I’ve already entered!
Over on Rebecca’s Blog it’s said that “Rebecca used her favorite aquamarine embossed leather to create headphone caps to match the ultra-popular hologram accessories from her fall collection. Your #ootd will never be the same again.”
What are your thoughts on these? I still can’t decide which is my favourite?
Thanks

Wednesday Wishlist…

It’s time for another Wednesday wish list, this week’s is a little bit unrealistic. At least for buying all at once, these are my techno dreams…

WW-techno

My first purchase is going to be a Digital SLR Camera, however, I am so not in the know on these lil’ babies! I know I want either a Nikon or a Canon and something that I can build my knowledge with, I love the look of both of the above, and have scrolled through the reviews, which sound amazing. But before I commit to buying anything I want to be able to handle them and see which I prefer. Any help on the Nikon vs Canon debate would be truly appreciated, as would any advice on specific models!

I’m also hoping to get an ipad around Christmas – hopefully with some help towards it as a pressie : ) Then my phone contract ends in January so I’ll see what’s out then, but I love the look of the Sony Experia Z, it’s huge, and so sleek, I like the white option!

The Mac Book Pro is a bit of a pipe-dream, and not really needed, I do have an iMac. BUT they are sooooo pretty!!

What’s on your techno wish list?

Check out what I was lusting after last week here

Wednesday Wishlist…

Welcome to my Wednesday Wishlist, a feature that, if received well, I will post each Wednesday (shocker I know!). I think it’s will be handy for me to keep a “journal” almost of everything I see and WANT! However, very dangerous, it’s definitely going to make me spend more by remembering everything little thing!

First up, on the beauty wishlist, is Nars, obviously, blush. As of yet I have no Nars make up in my make-up bag, sacrilege I know! I have been wanting the Orgasm Blush for as long as I can remember, and now I can’t decide whether to get this one or Super Orgasm (or both). Has anyone used either or both of them? But to be honest I want them all, Seduction just looks delish! And whats a blush without a decent brush, this number 19 one is more for bronzer, but hey lets not be picky!

Wednesday-Wishlist

My Christmas list is going to be huge isn’t it?! Ooopsy!

What are you lusting for at the moment?
