In a few weeks (on the 29th June) I will be turning 19, and I thought it would be a nice idea to sneakily write a post about a few of the things I have been eyeing up for a while! My friends say I'm really easy to buy for as they know me so well, but just incase they get stuck - there are a couple of ideas here.
First up is the ZOEVA Rose Gold Brush Set (£56.95). This hit the blogging world a long time ago, and I have been lusting after it for what seems to be forever! The reviews for these brushes are amazing, and as of late I have a slight weakness towards anything rose gold!
A few times, when I first started my blog - I shot my photos using the Nikon AF-S NIKKOR 50mm f/1.8 Lens (£136) The lens is INCREDIBLE for portrait and close up shots as it has a shorter focal length. Although the lens seems pricey, it is actually pretty cheap as far as lenses go. Some lenses can cost £1000s!
When I last went shopping, I took a trip into Harvey Nichols - whilst there I spritzed this, and it smelled amazing! I've never tried anything from Dior before so I was very impressed! The Miss Dior Perfume by Dior (£137 per 100ml) is a very fresh, citrusy floral perfume. With top notes of wild strawberry and mandarin orange it would be the perfect perfume for summer!
At the point of writing this, I have just about run out of my beloved Benefit Porefessional Primer (£24.50). This stuff is perfect as a gift as it is on the high end of the price scale. It is a lightweight tinted balm and gives a flawless satin finish. It also makes your foundation last forever! I don't think I could live without it!
Being so tall, I always have a problem when it comes to wearing high heels. The problem being that it makes me well over 6ft tall! But recently, I have been loving wearing sandals with a slight block heel. Although they give a little height, they wouldn't make me look like a giant - plus they'd be extra comfy on a night out! I have been eyeing up these Red Ankle Strap Block Heel Sandals from New Look (£17.99) for quite a while. I don't own many (if any) coloured shoes, I usually tend to opt for black or white so I would love to add these to my collection! PS - I'm a size 8 for those wondering ;)
I am a bit of a handbag horder. I Like to have a bag to match every outfit for every occasion. Up until recently my bag collection was mainly made up of tan coloured satchel styled across body bags and black tote bags - but I have been slowly expanding my collection! I am absolutely in love with this Powder Pink Handbag from H&M (£29.99) - it is such a gorgeous shade for the the summer and it will add a nice pop of colour to a monochrome outfit!
Finally, I have saved the best till last! I recently redecorated my bedroom and all that seems to be missing is a few accessories. My walls are completely bare and I've been meaning to buy a few prints and a mirror for a while. I have been wanting to buy this Motivational Print (£8.31 - £16.94) from Etsy so I can prop it up on my dresser next to my Muji Makeup Storage Drawers. I read somewhere, that a room does not feel cosy without pieces of art on the walls - so I am determined to find a few key pieces to finish off my room!
What would be your ideal gift from someone be?
Thanks for reading!
