LUST LIST / JUNE
I know you’re all probably really fed up about me harping on about how quickly this year is going but jeeeeeeeeez, it’s June. Bladdy June. The only salvation is that in theory it should start heating up a bit this month.
It’s actually my birthday at the beginning of next month and for some reason, I’m known to be notoriously difficult to buy for, so this may serve as a bit of a birthday wish list for certain people…. (you know who you are haha!)
If you're new here, howdy, a lust list is pretty self explanatory but it's basically ALL the random bits and pieces I'm lusting over. Now that bits over, let's just get to it shall we?
BEAUTY & SKINCARE
Makeup palettes – of any kind – get me a little hot under the collar. Strange, I know, but there’s just something so luxury and special about them. I’ve had a couple of the NARS face palettes over the years but haven’t had a solely eyeshadow based one before. I saw this NARSissist one a few weeks ago and fell in loooooove. I've had several of the Naked Palettes from Urban Decay and they're fabulous but I think it's time to try something new and I couldn't think of anything better, the shades are all super wearable and I love that there's a good mix of matte and shimmer shades.
I'm just gonna throw this out there, and some of you may be horrified, but I'm super shit at washing my makeup brushes and sponges. It's the absolute bane of my life and actually requires me to take a considerable amount of time out of my weekend to get them done. With that in mind, I don't have THAT many brushes so I use the same ones over and over again, hence why I need to wash them so regularly... so I'm thinking some extra brushes would come in handy. The Real Techniques ones are brilliant, I couldn't recommend them more.
If you've been here a while, I've mentioned several times that I'm a nude lipstick wearer and as much as I stand by that, sometimes I look in the mirror and get a bit bored of the same old look. I'd like a new lipstick shade to spice things up a bit. I've got one lipstick from Top Ford that I really love and although pricey, the standard and quality is outstanding so I'd quite like to pick up another in the range. Perhaps this one called Wild Ginger.
P.S. The Charlotte Tilbury lipstick in Pillow Talk would be nice too ;) (Totally not a nude..........)
I've done quite a lot of splurging on clothes recently so probably don't need to invest in much more clothing wise. I do feel like I'm in a bit of an accessories rut at the moment though, both with bags and shoes so I've got my eye on the below to excite things a bit.
Or y'know, if anyone is feeling generous, the Stella McCartney Falabella Bag is making me swoooooooooon. Absolutely gorgeous.
Shoe wise, I just need to wear the other pairs I've bought and not just wear the same old sandals every single day. Saying that, I never did invest in a new pair of white trainers so this month might be the month! I've always been a fan of Converse but I'm also really feeling these ones from Superga at the moment because they're so minimal and classic.
I actually really sadly lost one of my every day rings this month; if you've seen any Instagram shots, you'll know I used to wear the same four every day. My finger feels pretty bare without it so I'll need to find a replacement at some point. Missoma is one of my new favourite jewellery brands and I'm struggling to decide between the Silver Molten Ring and the Silver Nova Ring - which one would you go for?!
I'm putting random lifestyle bits on hold for a while, because, #1 I have no surface area left in my room for random bits and pieces, #2 I'm barely at home enough to be cooking from all these many cookbooks I keep buying and finally #3 I'm absolutely desperate for a holiday so am putting extra money aside to save up for some time in the sunshine. I've got my eye on Positano, it looks absolutely dreamy.
I hope you all have a wonderful June, filled with lots of Pimms in the sunshine.
SO MUCH LOVE TO YOU ALL!
