Wishlist Of The Moment

I love reading these type of posts yet have never done one myself, so I thought now should be the time. I am lusting over everything I see these days and online window shopping is definitely my new hobby!

1 - I have recently being looking for a nice skirt to go with my black bandeau top for a night out or even just for a summer day. I prefer pleated skirts and have seen a couple on Asos and in Zara. However, whilst browsing Topshop, this definitely caught my eye and I am thinking of purchasing this when I go on my trip to London.
I love how it goes longer at the back and shorter at the front and the pleats add a bit of edge.

2 - Leather jackets seem to be everywhere at the moment and just look so nice! The one shown in the picture is £85 from Asos (I did say WISHlist!) Not sure if this purchase will happen, but I may hopefully find a nice cheaper alternative.

3 - I really want to splurge on some Ray Bans this summer due to the fact that I lost my favourite pair of sunglasses in Egypt, and all my other pairs, I'm not too keen on. I would love a really nice pair that I can look after and feel special when wearing. I'm loving the Wayfarer style and I think the tortoise shell print looks really cool. I have also being browsing other styles of Ray Ban but I shall have to see which style suits me more.

4 - I am on the hunt for the perfect pair of heels and today I found them in New Look (not the ones pictured above). They were unfortunately sold out in my size: not only in the shop I was in, but in all the New Look's in my region. I was so disappointed as they were gorgeous! Following an online browse, I came across these from which are quite gorgeous for nights out.

5 - Finally, following the Real Techniques trend, I have heard the hype about the 'buffing brush'. I really need a brush to apply my foundation and feel as if this brush would be perfect. Unfortunately, in order to get this brush, you need to purchase the 'Core Collection'. This is £21 and I'm just not sure if it is worth it.... PLEASE BRING OUT THIS BRUSH ON IT'S OWN!!

Tell me if there's anything you are particularly lusting over this spring? I'm feeling such a shopoholic at the moment, especially with going out clothes!
Love Alice


  1. i love that jacket! been trying to find a cheap faux leather one for so long!

  2. I have the core collection and only use the buffing brush and the contour brush, but it's so worth it! I use the buffing brush to buff (duh) my tinted moisturizer, and the contour brush is the perfect size and density for Soleil Tan de Chanel (Bronze Universel).
    Come take a peek at my blog if you have a moment!

  3. biker jackets are so hot right now! glad i made a good deal on ebay and bought a fab one for just €10 :-) u'll find a good one, i'm sure. but i would definitely purchase one because u can combin'em with almost everything! x
