Weekend Wishlist 2014: 1

It’s been a while since I put together a little weekend wishlist of things I’m lusting after. But there are a few prominent features on there – you know, the ones you bookmark or save in your basket and then re-visit all the time to see…are they still in stock? Have they gone on sale… do they have my size?! All those important existential questions…!

Weekend wishlist 2014: 1

Top of my shopping list right now is the Canon EOS M – I tried to track this down in the US, but no luck. So I am determined to purchase this asap as would be such a handy camera for blogging. With pictures almost as good as the Canon 600D, but without the back-breaking effects of lugging that around. Plus you can interchange lenses to those on the 600D or other DSLR (with an adaptor). Definitely top of my shopping list.

Next on the wishlist is NARSissist Blush Palette – a beauty of a palette, with two NARS classics plus a highlighter that’s exclusive to this trio. It’s on pre-order from Space NK, where I just happen to have a voucher for that’s burning a hole in my pocket as we speak (thank you lovely people from my old work). It’s either this, or the new cream/gel blush from By Terry..it’s a tough call.

I have only recently purchased a new coat, so not sure I can justify this – but that doesn’t mean I don’t love this mint coloured ASOS Petite Fluffy Cocoon Coat any less. It’s a beauty. That happy medium between smart and casual and in my favourite colour…can you think of anything more ideal for Spring? No, me neither. Man I want this coat.

Also on the mint theme (did I mention it’s my favourite colour?) there’s this gorgeous John Lewis Mint Lamp. I’m in the market for a new desk lamp as the one I have at the moment is less desk lamp, more soft ambient lighting…lovely for atmosphere, not so good for my eyesight. So I want to replace with a pretty desk lamp that will actually shed some light on what I’m doing… what a novelty!

Then there’s my ongoing obsession with Nike… these Pink Nike Blazers are on sale on ASOS (with an extra 15% off all ASOS sale with the code ‘Final15’) so they’re an absolute bargain. This is just another case of ‘do I really need a pair of hot pink trainers?’. The answer probably being no, but then I did buy a hot pink handbag this week…so they would match that….

Finally, a little nod to my love of all things necklace related in New Look – they really do have the best necklace offerings on the highstreet in my opinion. It’s almost impossible for me to go in there and leave without another neck-decorating bargain. If you like the odd statement necklace, definitely check them out – they have all shapes/sizes/colours/styles. Well worth a visit – I’m particularly loving this New Look Aztec Beaded Necklace.

    I have been checking out the Pink Nike Blazers too, but not sure if i will ever wear pink trainers. They are such a bargain though!

      Exactly, hard to resist! But are pink trainers a sensible purchase…?! Probably not.

    I love the Nike pink trainers, but I never know how to style trainers as I always feel I’ll look like I’m hitting the gym! Maybe I need to do a few internet and Pinterest searches to find out more…

    That lamp is really pretty, love the colour! The Nars palette is gorgeous, and I love that it comes with a handy brush. Whether or not it is worth getting really depends on whether you already own Orgasm/Laguna though, as the amount you get of each product is tiny. So if you need those products, you might be better off getting them separately. I’ve reviewed it over on my blog if you are interested – might help you to decide how to spend your Space Nk voucher!

    I’m looking to buy a new camera as well, and that one looks so nice especially for traveling.
