Summer Wish List

Untitled #12

It's almost here, the season I wait patiently impatiently for all year round... SUMMER!
I adore Summer, sunshine seems to make everyone happy, especially me! I'm a far happier, much more relaxed person when the weather is warm and the sun's out!

I've no idea what kind of Summer we're going to have, the rumours have started, as with every year, that we're going to have a good one. But we'll see!!

As with every month, I've put together a little seasonal wishlist!

Here are the things I fancy getting my hands on this Summer...

River Island Lace Bardot Top (£25.00)
This is actually from the plus size range, but I love the colour and style of this, the bardot tops are all coming back this season, I knew I shouldn't have got rid of my late teen/early 20's wardrobe ;). They're perfect for warm weather, light and airy, shoulder less; perfect for getting some sunshine on those shoulders and would go with jeans, shorts or a skirt and versatile enough to wear day time or evening. 

River Island White Distressed Jeggings (£45.00)
Also from RI, I'm loving these ripped jeggings. White denim being a popular trend this season, these would finish off any Summer outfit perfectly. I'd turn them up at the ankles and wear them with some cute wedges.

I love wearing jumpsuits in Summer. I don't know about you but I often choose an outfit to wear thinking it's going to be super hot all day, but after a few hours I'm feeling a bit chilly and want to change. Jumpsuits are perfect for these kind of days, they keep you covered up but they're thin enough to ensure you stay feeling cool when it's warm.

I love the colour of these, I think they'd be perfect if they were wedges as I'm a big fan of a wedge! They'd look great with jeans or a Summery dress.

I'm also loving these nude flats, they'd go with absolutely everything this Summer and keep my feet cool, comfy and looking pretty!

Michael Kors Peach Crossbody Bag (£155.00/
Okay so I don't have £155 to be splashing out on a new handbag right now, but it's a wish list right? ;) I love cross body bags, most of my every day bags are of this style as they're comfy and easy accessible and this gorgeous peach number would look beautiful over my shoulder this Summer. I'll have to keep my eyes open for a dupe though!

Tortoise Shell Flat Top Sunglasses (£10.00)
I've no idea if these would suit me, as I'm fussy as hell with sunglasses but I love the colour and style of these from River Island.

I'm all about the bronze, all year round. But in the Summer, it's totally acceptable to go all out on the sun kissed glow! This compact from Clarins is just beautiful! It contains three golden tones to create different bronze and blush shades, anti-pollution protection plus plant micro patch to keep skin supple and moisturised. WANT WANT WANT!

Let's just take a moment to sit back and appreciate how beautiful this is!!! 
It's actually really hard to get hold of, being out of stock in most online stockists. If you're lucky enough to live close to a Burberry store you'll probably be able to get your hands on one.
With it's gorgeous packaging, with the stylish Burberry 'tartan' design and it's highlighting powder, I think this looks far too beautiful to use! It'd look rather lovely on my dressing table though! ;)

I don't think this is available in the UK as yet, but I'll be super happy if it arrives during Summer as I think they look great. I don't like to wear lipsticks too often in hot weather as I find they melt quicker and doesn't last as long when you're drinking more often. So I prefer to go for tinted balms such as Baby Lips and Rimmel's Lip Butters, that give a nice, moisturising sheen of colour to the lips like these NYX Plush Gels. I'm slowly becoming a huge fan of NYX lip products so I definitely want to try these when they're released here.

I'm loving the look of Estee Lauder's limited edition Bronze Goddess range, I'm desperate to smell the fragrance and have a play around with the new products and this liquid highlight is on top of my list! Creating shimmering highlight for face and body, it's the perfect beauty essential this Summer!

I'm still a ColourPop virgin as they're a pain in the ass to ship over here, but I'm determined to ColourPop my ColourPop cherry [too much?!] soon and love the look of this pencil in a light peachy nude shade, perfect for summer lips!

Yankee Candle Summer Scoop Candle (£22.00/
Summer Scoop is one of my favourite fragrances from Yankee Candle, it fills your home with a strawberry ice cream scent, which is just lush!

Morphe 35O S Eyeshadow Palette
I've had my eye on this palette, or the classic matte version, for a while now, they are raved about in the beauty bloggersphere and in the beauty groups I'm in, and they're often, including as I write this post, out of stock. It's a stunning palette full of lovely soft and pigmented shades. I will get my hands on one eventually!

What about you?
What are YOU lusting after this Summer?
