An Illustrated Wishlist

Being the wild woman that I am, I thought I'd have a ~crazy~ saturday afternoon with some watercolours. 

Accompanied by the duvet on the sofa & some power ballads on tv, I was quite literally living the dream (if you're 80 years old, perhaps). Painting has always been a bit of a hobby of mine & one that I can just relax into; even if I'm not particularly great - I thought I'd illustrate a little wish list of sorts!
Nars Tinted Moisturiser : Finland (£29). Having run out of most of my foundations, I've got my eyes firmly on this product from Nars. I bought the shade Alaska to take with me on my Costa Rican Sloth Adventure last year and it worked wonders and had a gorgeous, light finish. However, my skin is no longer lovely and sun kissed and the shade just doesn't match. So, when I get some pennies together I'm thinking I'll be investing in this for the Spring/Summer months.

Fat Face Billy Spray Dye Jumper : Tea Rose (£20). I absolutely love Fat Face clothing. The quality is always so wonderful & cosy and the relaxed, lived-in style is definitely one I can get onboard with. I've had my eye on this jumper for a few months now and after seeing it in the sale, I think I may just have to get one… or two! (update : I may have already bought this)

Bioderma Sensibio Micellaire Solution (£9.99). Shock horror, a blogger that hasn't tried Bioderma! Or any real micellair product in general, for that matter. But once again, I'm intrigued and I really want to try some. I guess this is a fairly 'cheap' item to add to a wish list, but as I've tried being a lot more careful with my money lately - it's still one that I'm not just going to buy haphazardly. 

Tanya Burr Lipgloss : Afternoon Tea (£6.99). Another product that has been hard to ignore in the blogosphere, is the new line of lipgloss & nail varnish created by the lovely Tanya Burr. Afternoon Tea looks like such a pretty, neutral shade that I think I may just have to take the plunge and place an order!

Hourglass Ambient Blush : Diffused Heat (£28). Oh, the hype. It has got me (a little late to the party, but even so). They do get very mixed reviews but they just look so pretty, I'd love to give one a go! Diffused Heat in particular looks right up my street. Have you tried these? What do you think? 

I hope you liked this post! Something a little different I suppose… Hopefully I'll make this a permanent feature & fingers crossed my skills improve at the same time! (I could definitely do with the practice!) 

Have a lovely Sunday



  1. Your paintings are gorgeous, I am very jealous!

    1. Thanks so much Amara! :) glad you like them x

  2. Wow, you're so incredibly talented! I love watercolour painting, but nothing I try ever looks anywhere near as gorgeous as yours! Bioderma has always been one of my favourite products, but honestly, I recently tried out the Garnier version and it's the perfect dupe, so I'd really recommend it - much cheaper!
    I'm dying to get my hands on 'Afternoon Tea', too, but it's so overhyped, I'm worried it'll just never live up to my expectations ha.
    Followed you, by the way, your blog is just stunning xx
