I have narrowed down my shopping wish list to a few things that I actually need. I don't really need any clothes because I have too many and there aren't a lot of make up items I actually need. I can't wait to go and have a good look around the huge Boots and Selfridges - me and my family love a good Boots and Selfridges is just amazing. Who doesn't love that shop!?
I thought I would share with you a few of the things that I have on my shopping wish list. I shall definitely be looking out for these items and maybe making a few cheeky purchases! I love having lots of shopping bags. There is nothing better than walking around with your hands bursting full of bags I LOVE it!
I love loads of things from Ted Baker but I need to get a new makeup bag. I don't really have much makeup storage because I'm always travelling and I don't have the room for decent storage. Therefore, I just keep my makeup in makeup bags. I got one of the large Ted Baker wash bags for Christmas and it's extremely spacious! I noticed this bright pink one in John Lewis a while back and fell in love with it. I said I would wait and buy it when family were down so this is definitely going to be bought!
I have had my eye on the Ted Baker purses since I came down to London for my first year of university. Whenever I'm in the shop I always have a look at them and say 'I really need to get one of these' but I have never got round to buying one. I love them and they're absolutely gorgeous but I've just never felt the need to buy one. Other family members want to go to Ted Baker and I know I will go straight over to these purses. It just depends how I'm feeling, I might get one I might not; we shall soon see!
I am having a BIG foundation crisis right now. I just cannot seem to find one that is the perfect match for my skin colour. I have an awkward tone, it's not too yellow, it isn't too pink and neutral foundations are too brown for me. I literally just have white skin - no pink, no yellow just white. I don't know exactly what foundation I am going to purchase because it all depends entirely upon whether or not the brand does a shade that will match my tone. I'm always the palest shade in a foundation colour range but 9 times out of 10 even that colour is too dark and the wrong colour for me in some way. Trust me, finding a foundation is a hand task. We will be having a good shop and look around Selfridges so I plan on going into the makeup hall and visiting Bobbi Brown and Laura Mercier. I've narrowed things down to these two brands because I know they do pale shades - whether or not they're the right kind of pale, I don't know.
I have never used the Laura Mercier Silk Creme Foundation but I have heard a lot of good things about it. The same goes for the Bobbi Brown Skin Foundation (never tried it but I've heard positive reviews). I have never heard anything about the Long-Wear Even Finish Foundation but the fact that it's long wear appeals to me!
below telling me what you thought of it. I'd love to hear from you!
I was lucky enough to to receive an iconic Alexander McQueen black and white skull scarf for Christmas (you can see it in my haul here) and I absolutely love it. I honestly wear my scarf everyday and because it's black and white it goes with everything. I feel as though it adds something special to any outfit and I always feel amazing wearing it. I love the McQueen scarves so much and as sad as it sounds ... I can really see myself collecting these beauties over the years!I seem to be loving pink for this summer and when I was in Selfridges a few weeks ago looking at the scarves I noticed a bright pink and white skull scarf. It tried it on and it really popped against my pale skin; I was in sold! Everything I go in, the scarf catches my eye and I am definitely going to be picking that up. it's going to look amazing against a plain top in the summer and could even be worn in the winter to brighten up those grey rainy London days (I don't stick to seasonal colour's - If I want to wear a dark colour in summer I will and if I want to wear a bright colour in winter I will).
I also have my eye on the white and black skull scarf. I know that to some people purchasing two scarves in one go may seem a little excessive (and expensive?) but when you wear them as regularly as I wear my black one they work out as being an amazing investment. I can't wait to go and see the scarves and pick some up, I'm excited to have a new McQueen baby (or babies)!
Finally we come onto my other designer crush, Louis Vuitton! I'm far too in love with this designer label and if I could go on a crazy shopping spree I'd definitely go to Louis! I find their bags to be so iconic and well made. They're luxurious and if you look after them they last forever. I have an eye on a couple and can see myself adding to my collection as soon as I possibly can.I have had my beautiful Speedy 35 for 1 year (on May 29th) and I absolutely love it. It's the perfect bag for me and I always feel so special carrying it. It makes me happy and I look after the bag so much. Eventually, I would love to add another Speedy (in the Damier Ebene print) to my collection, a Neverfall (I'm undecided of what print I would go for) and an Alma GM in the Monogram Vernis.
I didn't plan on purchasing another bag this summer (but I hope to be getting one soon!). Instead, I am considering treating myself to an accessory. I absolutely love the little key holder because it's a perfect little pouch that can be used as a coin purse, be used to place cards inside and can be hooked into the inside of a bag. When I got my Speedy, I wanted one of these little pouches but I didn't get one. Although Louis Vuitton have increased their prices quite a bit (probably the reason for why I keep seeing more and more fakes around!). I shall definitely be popping into the Louis Vuitton boutique in Selfridges whilst I am in there with family and a good look around.
I can't wait to go shopping and spend some time in London with my family. I have missed them so much! I'm sure we will be doing a lot of exciting things and I shall share all of my purchases with you all in my collective haul for May. Do you have any exciting summer wish list items?
