I can finally admit that I have officially finished university so there is perfectly no excuse for me not to post anything up on my blog for you all.
I thought I would share with you a few things from my wish list. A combined month of goodies this time round. Making up for the fact that I missed April’s Wish List. These are a few items that I have been wishing for this past month. All items mentioned in this post are items that I am really wishing for &/or items I’m planning on purchasing hopefully this month or soon after, especially for my holiday to Tenerife in just two weeks.
1. Cocoa Butter // Body Shop
This super-rich and creamy Body Butter is a pricy contender but is great for my skin. I have quite dry skin and this body butter seems to melt straight in, leaving the skin feeling soft and smooth. Plus the added bonus of the sweet cocoa scent is divine.
2. Urban Decay Vice 4 Palette // Urban Decay// Debenhams
A new brand for me, recommend by my friends and twitter followers – I instantly fell in love with the 20 addictively gorgeous, never-before-seen shades of eyeshadow. It’s a limited-edition palette so I’ll need to grab it quick. It includes a huge mirror, a double-ended brush and a coordinating bag. It’s pretty expensive, but I’ve heard it’s worth it. I better spend my Debenhams vouchers ASAP!
3. Monki Feeling Beachy Beach Towel // ASOS
I have been searching the web for about 7 weeks now for a perfect beach towel and this one says it all. I’m all for personality and expression and this street-style-meets-Scandi-chic design and super-fun towel will be perfect on holiday. Its brash colours and a whole lot of prints and patterns will be enjoyed by me lounging around on the beach.
4. NYX Micro Brow Pencil // NYX // Boots
With the launch of NYX products now in the UK, I have begun to invest in their products. Another recommendation from a friend is this beautiful masterpiece. Building full beautiful brows with this ultra-thin Micro Brow Pencil. Apparently it’s precise it coats even the finest hairs with color for a natural-looking finish.
5. Fujifilm Mini 70 // Instax
The latest in Fujifilm technology the instax mini 70, a new model to join the ‘instax mini’ series of instant cameras. Available in other colours such as “Canary Yellow,” and “Island Blue,” I decided to opt for “Moon White,”. There are new features such as the Auto Exposure Control Function to capture both the main subject and background in natural brightness as well as the newly added ‘Selfie’ mode. I cannot wait to take cute polaroid snaps on holiday. I hope to do an unboxing and how to use on my YouTube channel when it gets delivered to my house.
6. NYX Butter Gloss Ginger Snap // NYX // Boots
Best lip glosses on the scene, so I can’t wait to try these dessert related named glosses. They smell good and look good and supposedly show true to colour. Darker skin tones like mine, I’ve been recommended Ginger Snap, but am also excited to try the orangey Cherry Cheese Cake and matte lip stick Abu Dhabi. For the price of £5 I’m bound to pick up at least two or three. Whether I wear them on their own or layered over my favourite lipsticks.
7. Vanilla Body Mist // Body Shop
A lightly scented body mist for all over my body with a gentle burst of warm vanilla. It’s irresistible.
Finally, here are my weekend travel essentials I’ll be bringing on holiday.
