My Birthday Wish List

So...It's my Birthday this week. *Excited Face Emoji*
It was Sam's on Thursday, that's how we sort-of met. We worked together and as our birthday were around the same time we always had joint celebrations. That tradition has continued ever since. We started celebrating on Friday, anyone who follows my Instagram will know how much fun that was -others will have to wait for those little details! 

It's a pretty big birthday for me this year, I'm 30! Some might find that scary but I'm at such an amazing time in my life and I've never been happier in myself or how my life is going. I have all the right people around me and I'm feeling great. This is way better than my 18th and a MILLION times better than the let-down that my 21st was. Who said getting older is a bad thing? 

So in the lead up to the big 3-0 I've had people asking me what I'm lusting after. I've got plans with my friends and family which is all I need to keep me happy but if a birthday isn't an excuse to get a little materialistic, I don't know what is!

These are a few bits I love the look of....

You can't go wrong with a bottle of Chanel can you?! Chanel Chance smells amazing and it's the ultimate treat.

Of course there are some shoes I like! These nude Court Shoes are really cute and I love the bow detail. I would wear these to death, I just know it! Nude shoes go with everything!

I usually wear my Michael Kors watch but this Watch from Next has a bit of a Cinderella theme to it and I love the little shoe charm. Disney and Shoes is a great combination. The colour of the strap is so lovely too.

I've told myself I really don't need the Naked Smoky Palette but I DOOOOOOOO. The others are such good quality and I get so much wear out of them I just know it's worth it.

I was looking for a dress to wear on one of our birthday nights out. There are so many gorgeous dresses but I'm very aware I'm approaching 'mutton dressed as lamb' territory and I might have to leave the tiny bodycons to the 19 year olds! I'm not toning it down too much, I really like the look of this Skater Dress by Little Black Dress, it's not too understated and the full skirt makes it something a little bit special. I think I'd feel very Victoria Beckham in it!

I know it's not like me to like any kind of layers or even contemplate dressing for the cold weather but I really really like this Coat from Michelle Keegan's collection. How sensible of me, I must be growing up! Soon I'll be throwing out all my heels and replacing them with Toms or something (not really... god, it even hurt to joke about it) 

I absolutely love rose gold at the moment, and this Ted Baker Bangle  is really pretty. There's just the right amount of sparkle there without making it completely bling and in-your-face. Not that I'm against that at all!

I'm after some new make-up brushes and I've heard good things about the Real Techniques Duo Fibre Brush Set. Apart from my Stippling brush which fell apart last week I've loved all of the RT brushes and the sets are great value. 

This one is highly unlikely, given the price. I might have to wait for a trip to New York before I'm treated to this but I love this quilted Kate Spade Purse . Kate Spade is one of those designers that can do no wrong, I love everything and I have a huge wish list of Kate Spade products alone.

I actually dreamt I owned these Lace Up Heels  and ever since I've decided I can't live without them in my life. They are such an amazing price and they are the first lace-up shoe that I've loved the look of.

On to the pampering side of things, this Champneys Hamper caught my eye wandering through Boots earlier today. I love the hamper and the contents are so luxurious. After what I feel might be a month of celebrating I'll need a good pamper session!

I'm very VERY excited about this birthday. Everything is so good at the moment and I can't wait to properly fill you all in on all the details!!



  1. The purse is beautiful! And Happy Birthday in advance :)
