Birthday Wishlist

Birthday Wishlistxxx

It's my birthday coming up at the end of this month (August 29th yay!) and I wanted to share my Wishlist with all the products I love! I've been wanting a new bag for a while and think the Michael Kors Selma Bag is absolutely dreamy. I love the style of it and how you can use it both day and night time. It looks super chic and classic. It's also a lot cheaper to purchase some brands such as Michael Kors online / from America because the conversion rate works out a lot better. I tend to shop online at Shopbop - their prices are amazing and they have free international delivery a lot of the time!  Although I love wearing black, I think this Missguided dress is gorgeous and I love the pastel pink colour. I'm thinking of ordering this as I think it'll look pretty for a day time event.

I've been wanting to try Charlotte Tilbury's Film Star Bronze & Glow for a while now, and since its quite pricey I thought asking for it for my birthday would be a good idea. I've heard so many people rave about her line that I want to get my hands on either this or one of her lipsticks! I also love highlighters and having a glowing complexion so the Nars highlighter in Copacabana is perfect for creating a dewy look. I've tried it before and I've loved the way it looked on my skin - so natural and radiant. 

I love these Stuart Weitzman shoes but sometimes I just can't justify the price. I've seen the exact same pair for literally an eighth of the price from New Look - here - and they look so similar. Nevertheless the shoes are gorgeous and asking for them for a birthday is always worth it! There have been other little things on my wish list like this Whistles make up bag that make up for really lovely small gifts.
