Wishlist: March 2016

Oh dear, I've fallen off the blogging wagon again. It's nearly my birthday and as my loved ones have been struggling with what to get me, I decided to make a wishlist. I don't know why, but now I'm getting a bit older, I struggle to find things I'd like as a gift that can actually be bought. I mean, I'd be happy with my 19 year old self's metabolism, the ability to lie in, financial stability and the motivation to exercise but I'm not sure those are things you can get from Topshop or ASOS. Failing that, I found some cute clothes and must-have make up bits I'd be more than happy to open on the 30th!

1. Tatyana Babydoll Dress - Motel
The Tatyana dress from Motel has all the characteristics for a great Spring staple - a pussybow, gingham checks & floral print. I would team it with a fedora hat and my DM's.

2. Self Made palette (Limited Edition) - Anastasia Beverly Hills
Since buying my Makeup Geek eyeshadows, I've got a taste for experimenting with different eye looks. The "Self Made" palette came out late last year and I am KICKING myself for not picking it up before it sold out. The stand out colours for me are "Deep Purple", "Pink Champagne" and the sparkly mint colour "Isla" (if anyone knows of a dupe for this beauty, please leave a comment below!).

3. Reasons To Stay Alive - Matt Haig
I've had this book recommended to me time and time again, as well as having read reviews that it's a wonderful read for anyone who is, or has, suffered from mental health problems. I'm intrigued!

4. Velour Liquid Lipstick "Dollparts" - Jeffree Star Cosmetics
I've already tried a liquid to matte lipsticks by JSC, but due to the "out there" shade, I rarely find myself reaching for it despite my love for the formula. Doll Parts, a gorgeous pale pink shade, was a limited edition release for Christmas but thankfully has since been made permanent and should be restocked in April. Like Celebrity Skin, another of Jeffree's lipsticks, the name of DPs refers to a song by my favourite band Hole.

5. Holy Grail Limited Edition Palette - Violet Voss
More make up! I can't get enough at the moment. So, in case you haven't heard, this insane collection of eye shadows is like gold dust to try and get your hands on but that's no surprise when you check out the swatches that are circulating the internet. Fingers crossed I get my hands on it during the next release!

6. Disney's The Jungle Book Trainers - Vans via ASOS
I've loved all the Disney releases from Vans but there's never been a pair I could see colour co-ordinating with the rest of my wardrobe...that is until now. I'd love to rock these alongside a denim pinafore.
