Weekend Wishlist



It's all about the khaki this winter, whether we are talking clothing, make-up or accessories, so a pair of warm skinnies to mix and match is going to be a staple piece in my wardrobe. I also can't get enough of layering so this cosy sleeveless parka is an essential and would look great thrown on over all manner of knitwear (I've already got my eye on several hundred woolly jumpers!). When I want to dress things up a bit, the structured blazer will be perfect and can easily take a look from day tonight, as it's suitable for work as well as wine.
Add to these key pieces yet another pair of studded boots and just one more peplum and my winter wardrobe will be looking close to perfect, in my eyes. It's just a shame this is only a wishlist and not my actual shopping bag!
I am keen to pick up the UnBEElievable BEE Prepared Daily Defence Immune Support in order to ward of winter colds, as it's all natural and contains all sorts of goodies such as bee propolis, black elderberry, olive leaf and beta glucans. I usually pick up every bug going in the winter, so I need all the help I can get!
Skin could always do with that bit of extra pampering in the colder months, and with GlamGlow bringing out a special edition of their fantastic mud mask for Breast Cancer Awareness, it would be rude not to. Granted, I don't really need any more face masks, but it would be rude not to when it's all in the name of a good cause. I'm also hoping to grab the Clarins Vital Light Skin Illuminators Collection and provide my skin with that extra bit of glow for the festive season. My skin tends to be a bit dull in the winter so it can do with all the help it can get.
Lastly, I am beyond keen to get my hands on the new L'oreal Paris Volume Million Lashes Excess Mascara (phew, long name). The normal version is my all-time favourite mascara and I use it on a daily basis, so I'm really excited to try this ramped-up version and see how it performs.

I'm so glad to be finally feeling up to blogging again after a rough week. I've been spending some time with the in-laws, who have been feeding me cake (they know me so well) and the hubby has been looking after me too, so I am feeling lots better and ready to face the world again! This weekend I am planning on chilling out, with a pamper session on the cards tonight. It's been a while since I could actually be bothered as I haven't been interested in anything for a couple of weeks, so it's long overdue and I'm going to enjoy tring out some of my newest products.

What's on your wishlist this week?
Do you have anything exciting planned for the weekend?

    1. I actually don't own anything khaki as yet, although saying that I'm sure I do have a little camo jacket stashed away somewhere from a few years ago. Either way, I'm looking forward to seeing some more of it this season. I really like khaki nails and eye makeup at the moment too. xx

    1. Thanks Jen! I've just been over having a read of yours so will get onto that :)
      You're right, skinnies are an absolute staple and you can never have too many pairs or colours. I do love dresses or shorts with tight but sometimes you just want to be both comfy and cosy!xx

  6. I adore the camo makeup bag, the suedette bag is pretty awesome too and looks huge which is how I like my bags! I've also been lusting over the topshop military luggage bag which would really compliment this one.

    1. Ooh, I've not seen that - not sure if I dare have a look either as it's likely to become yet another thing I am itching to buy!
      I love big bags too, although I must say, they do just seem to invite me to fill them up with even more rubbish!xx
