#18 Weekend Wishlist – the Christmas Jumper Edition

24 Nov

Well everyone, the Christmas season is definitely upon us. I love this time of year, the cities are always beautifully decorated and full of Christmas markets. It all puts me in a great mood. In fact, my housemates and I decorated our house this week! We raided Poundland, they have some awesome Christmas decorations – definitely worth having a look! For this weekends wishlist, I have gone with a Christmas jumper theme. I am really regretted not picking one up when I popped to Meadowhall a couple of weeks ago. Here are a few of my favourites:

1. Boohoo Shauna Christmas Tree Jumper, £15

2. Boohoo Nicole Father Christmas Jumper, £15

3. ASOS Christmas Pattern Jumper, £32

4. New Look Charcoal Scenic Reindeer Knitted Jumper, £27.99

5. River Island Red Christmas Fairisle Jumper, £35

6. Ebay Christmas Pudding Jumper, £19.99

I have been really impressed with Boohoo’s knitwear pieces this season. They have some great designs at great prices – especially their novelty Christmas jumpers! And of course, New Look, River Island and ASOS never disappoint. If you’re looking for some Christmas jumpers, eBay is definitely worth a look. The seller from the link above has a few designs, I love them all.

I love Christmas jumpers, they make me happy. There are so many great designs out there (check out Primark), it was hard knocking my selection down to 6! I know it is not even December yet, but no bah-humbugs allowed here!! :) So will you be treating yourself or your loved ones to a fab Christmas jumper?

#15 Weekend Wishlist – Missguided

18 Nov

I did a blog post all about Missguided a little while back (see it here), where I confessed my love for them. Everyday since I find myself scouring through their website, lusting over every item of clothing they have, whether it be party dresses or chunky knits. I just love their pieces, bang on trend without the hefty price tag! So for this weekends wishlist I have dedicated it to Missguided. All of the items are from Missguided, and if I wasn’t a poor student I would have bought them all! (along with most of the pieces on the website!!)

1. Sylvia Stud Disco Legging in Navy, £12.99 – I have a pair of black disco pant leggings from Missguided which I live in. It seems only right to be wanting a navy pair, and with the added studs they look amazing. So versatile, and at a great price.

2. Kimmie Chunky Knit Owl Jumper, £14.99 – How cute is this owl jumper? It looks so warm too, and I love the khaki colour. Perfect for layering with some gold jewellery. I love the way they have styled it on the website too with the chiffon skater skirt!

3. Adelie Leather Stud Ankle Boot in Black, £34.99 – These boots are gorgeous! They are studded which I love and on top of that they have a tassel detail too which is a great addition. They come in a few different colours, but for me it would have to be black.

4. Fiorenza Plaited Shopping Bag in Purple, £26.99 – The colour of this bag sold it to me. It is a beautiful purple colour, perfect for autumn/winter. It looks big and spacious too, so would be perfect for students on the go.

5. Julissa Sequin Skater Dress, £29.99 – I think Missguided are best known for their party dresses, and this seasons pieces do not disappoint. They have some amazing dresses which would be perfect for Christmas or New Year celebrations. I love skater dresses as they are so flattering for my body shape. The sequin detail of this dress gives it the right amount of sparkle for me, it’s fab!

#11 Weekend Wishlist

11 Nov

Bonjourrrr, sorry for not posting yesterday. I was busy at Meadowhall doing some Christmas shopping, and brought myself a couple of treats too while I was there. Fingers crossed I will be able to do a blog post about them early next week (hopefully). This weekends wishlist is beauty themed. The list of beauty items I want is incredibly long, but I have narrowed it down to 5 items. I have tried to keep it quite varied too :)

Models Own Nail Polish in Thunder and Lightning, £5 – I have a thing for nail polishes, and this one is ticking all of the right boxes for me. It is a classic colour with a metallic sheen, with multicoloured glitter. I first saw this on the Models Own Swatched page (which is super handy) and it looked amazing. I tried to find it in Boots yesterday but they didn’t have it (super sad face). I may have to add this to my Christmas list, it would make a good stocking filler.

ELF Duo Eyeshadow Cream in Butter Pecan, £1.50 – ELF is a company that I have only recently found and I love them. I did a big order with them previously and ordered this in Sugar Cookie and was really impressed with the finish and pigmentation of it. The Butter Pecan shades are really autumnal and with them being browns they are wearable too. Did I mention the price? £1.50!!

Benefit They’re Real Mascara, £18.50 – I love my L’oreal Double Extension mascara but I think it may be coming to its end. I have read so many good reviews on this product, and costing £18.50 it needs to be good! I may treat myself to this using my Boots Advantage points after Christmas, and hopefully it will live up to the hype!

Soap and Glory Hand Food, £5 – Who doesn’t love Soap and Glory? and who doesn’t need another hand cream in their life?! I have had the mini size of this in the past and loved it. It smells amazing, leaves your hands feeling super soft and doesn’t come with a hefty price tag either.

L’occitane Ultra Rich Eye Balm, £24 – I have never used a L’occitane product before, but I have always read and heard good things. The one thing I hate about winter is how damaging it can be to my skin. It really dries it out, leaving it looking so dull. And recently I have noticed dry patches around my eyes and this looks like it should be able to help! It is quite costly at £24, but if it works I wouldn’t mind spending that much.

Have you used any of these products? Did you have a good or bad experience with them? Drop me a comment, tweet or email and get involved! You can find out my contact details here.

#5 Weekend Wishlist

3 Nov

I have been thinking about some new posts and features and this is the first one – weekend wishlist. I spend at least an hour a day browsing through ASOS, Topshop, Feel Unique etc everyday so thought it would be a good one to do. Here is the first edition, and I have themed it all around winter :) I love winter because of christmas, my birthday and everyone is just so happy! I love layering up with chunky knits, and here are a few of the items I am lusting over at the moment.

River Island Dark Red Studded Jumper, £35 – Dark red/wine is definitely a colour that represents autumn and winter for me. This jumper combines it with the studded trend, and it is gorgeous. I have had RI knitwear before and loved it and I am sure this piece would not disappoint. Definitely one to add to your wish list. Find it here: http://tinyurl.com/c8q3tcj

Topshop Aztec Neon Mittens, £12 – These mittens are so cute! I have lost my gloves from last year and my hands freeze everytime I leave the house. I love the aztec print of these too, and for £12 the price is not that bad for Topshop. Find them here: http://tinyurl.com/d9x5t4h

New Look High Leg Boots, £24.99 – Boots are definitely a winter essential. I have been living in my Uggs so far this year but I have my eye on a pair of black high legs as they are so versatile and will go with everything. I am seriously thinking about investing in a pair of these as they will see you through to spring too. Find them here: http://tinyurl.com/ctbzmxh

Miss Selfridge Camel Parka, £85 – I don’t normally shop in Miss Selfridge but they have some great stuff in this season! I have a leather jacket which I pretty much wear everyday, but it isn’t the warmest of things. These parkas usually have a great lining and will definitely keep you warm during the winter months. Find it here: http://tinyurl.com/boxruvz

Burt’s Bees Sensitive Night Cream, £12.74 – The cold weather is really harsh on my skin, and I have dry skin at the best of times. I always moisturise in the morning but I do sometimes lack when it comes to night cream. I have used Burt’s Bees products before and loved them, so I might give this one a try. Find it here: http://tinyurl.com/dxof7uk

Hope you have enjoyed this post and I will try to keep it up as a weekly thing.
