Valentine's Gift Guide for Her

Valentines Gift guide for her




Hello everyone!
I've just decided to write up a last minute Valentines gift guide! It's full of things I'd personally love to get for Valentines Day, so if you're still struggling, I hope this gives you some inspiration...

1. Perfume- I've chosen two of my favourite scents as an example: Lancome La Vie Est Belle and Mark Jacobs Daisy. Can't go wrong.

2. A Watch- I am obsessed with this Rose Gold Olivia Burton watch! It's so pretty and you can get this at Asos and Topshop I believe.

3. Zoeva Makeup Brushes- I've just written a review on these which will be up shortly, but I love them and personally got them as an early Valentines present! They look so pretty on your dressing table as well as being good value and high quality brushes.

4. Pandora- I love Pandora and I think you can never go wrong with something from there as a gift for your loved one. Sticking to a 'love' theme I chose the heart ring or the heart-shaped charm.

5. Lingerie/PJ's- If you want to get something a bit more sexy, other than an underwear set (I love them all.) I fell in love with this cute Strappy Front Teddy from Asos. At £25 I think it's a perfect present. I love this colour but I think they also have it in black .

6. Michael Kors Bag- Okay, so I put this on here because 1, I want one very much, and 2, I AM OBSESSED WITH THIS COLOUR. Obviously this only applies if you have a big budget but I thought I'd include it anyway.

7. Lipgloss- Any girly-girl would love a nice expensive lipgloss for their collection! Nars do great ones with a large selection of shades, as do MAC and if you really want to push the boat out check out Chanel.

8. Other Makeup - I stumbled across this Too Faced Sweetheart Beads- Radiant Glow Face Powder on Asos and thought it was a perfect little Valentine's present as the beads are heart shaped and being winter/spring at the moment our skin needs a bit of TLC, meaning we all need a little extra glow!

New Years Wishlist

New Years Wishlist

Zoeva Rose Golden Brush Collection / NARS Cosmetics Virtual Domination Cheek Palette/ Clarins Extra-Comfort foundation / Ben Nye Banana Face powder / Charlotte Tilbury Make-up / Louise Young Cosmetics foundation brush / Thigh high boots

New year, new wishlist! I'm probably poorer than ever right now after going skiing and indulging over Christmas, but there's still things I'd love to have in my life...

The Zoeva brushes are everywhere right now and are said to be amazing, and at £56 for the Rose Gold set, it's only £7/8 a brush which isn't too bad. I really only use my Real Techniques brushes and only have 1 eyeshadow brush I really use, I desperately would love more when I have some spare cash! These were on my Christmas list but sadly everywhere seems to have sold out of them (beautybay and love-makeup.com, so as soon as these are back in stock I might find it hard to resist). 

NARS have this amazing palette (the Virtual Domination Cheek Palette) which includes cult favourites such as Deep Throat blush and Laguna bronzer. It's £45 but the RRP if sold separately would add up to £117...so...does that justify it?

MAC lipsticks- Pure Zen and Angel.

Clarins Extra Comfort Foundation. Laura from Buy Now/Blog Later loves this foundation and I'd love to try it so see for myself why it's so great. It does look like a lovely consistency, and with the LY34 brush she recommends to use with it it could be the perfect combo for a flawless face.

Ben Nye Banana Powder is rumoured to be what Kim Kardashian's makeup artist uses on her to set her makeup and achieve a flawless finish. Naturally, I want it, but it's so hard to come by in the UK.

Thigh high/over-the-knee black boots are very 'in' this season, and I would love to just try a pair on to see if they suit me actually. They look glamorous and Love Clothing and AX Paris have nice and relatively inexpensive pairs.

Finally, Charlotte Tilbury makeup. If money was no object at all I would probably buy the lot of it, but it's just so expensive that sadly I haven't got one thing. I've heard its absolutely amazing though and they have a few collections I would love to splurge on one day.

As always, thanks for reading and please follow me on Bloglovin!

I'd love to hear what's on your wishlist?

A Wishlist...

A Wishlist...



Hey guys, today I thought I'd share with you my current wishlist. 
As you can see there's many things I would love but just can't afford, but I can dream!

Beauty

Firstly with the beauty/make-up items, I really want to try a new foundation and I feel like an awful beauty blogger having not tried out Nars Sheer Glow or Estee Lauder Double Wear! After I'm done with my beloved No7 foundation in Honey (I love you.) I'm going to have to splurge on one of these, and it'll probably be the Nars first, leaving the slightly heavier coverage Estee Lauder for the winter.

Also from Nars, I want one of their 'Multiples. The Matte Multiple is a multi-purpose makeup stick that can be used on the eyes, lips and cheeks. Beautycrush on Youtube recently stated how she loves this product and uses it everyday for contouring and it blends so naturally into the cheekbones. It's expensive at £30 but my Hoola bronzer has almost run out so I might just have an excuse to get this one on payday!

I also really want a MAC lipstick and lipliner. After reading Beauty and the Blog's new post she's got me lusting after MAC Whirl lipliner and MAC Yash lipstick and wearing them together. Yash is a matte nude colour, while Whirl is a slightly richer 'your lips but better' colour. Also, Kylie Jenner recently revealed on twitter the lip product she uses on her lips is Mac's Whirl *cue product selling out everywhere*




Finally, I am dying to try out the widely loved YSL Shocking mascara after hearing such good things about it. It's in stiff competition with my Lancome Hypnose Star Eyes and Benefit's They're Real though!


Fashion

I've been wanting a pair of Rayban Aviators for so long now but can't get myself to spend the £100+ to get them. I'm so afriad I'll either lose them or sit on them or something and at the end of the day you pay so much for the little white scribble in the corner of the lense. However, I'm in love with them. I think they're effortless chic and just overall suit my face so much more than the other styles.


A Michael Kors bag is also on the wishlist. I love this bag in any colour and think it'll be so nice with the Rayban's, a pair of ripped jeans and a nice jumper (or any outfit at that matter).

Electrical
As a new blogger, I'm taking all my photos using my iPhone. This is fine but I get major blog envy of those amazing visual blogs with high definition pictures and I think make-up tutorials will be way more effective if I used a DSLR camera. I've actually wanted one for ages as I can also take photos of whenever I go travelling too! In an ideal world I would love the Cannon 700D as it has a little flip out screen so you can see what you're recording if the camera is pointing at you. This IS pricey though at about £550 and other models come a bit cheaper such as the Cannon 100D and Cannon1200D (more around the £350 mark).



 Above is the Cannon 100D, also know as the worlds smallest DSLR, apparently it's an amazing camera, small, light and it's touch screen too. I also am obsessed with the floral camera strap from Etsy.

Lastly, and probably for absolutely no reason, I want an Ipad. An Ipad Air (or Mini) would be a lovely addition to the Apple family and I can imagine it being so much easier to travel with, or just sit on the sofa or train with than a laptop. This is definitely not the top of my priority list though as having an iPhone and a laptop I don't need one at all, but it would be nice!

Thanks for reading and feel free to leave any comments below on what would be on  your wishlist!
