2nd wish list everrrrrr. I’m sort of um-ing and ah-ing about what kind of things to include on these wish lists… I’m not sure whether to keep them quite limited (i.e. beauty, fashion etc.) or to include everything that I’m pining for right now, inclusive of the slightly daft things. This post has got a bit of both; I guess because I am who I am and I like what I like. I’ll go forward with that ethos from now one, but that comes with a warning. There will be randomness!

So with that little disclaimer, here’s my wants and loves:

Tweezers are my nemesis. I need them (thanks bushy eyebrows!) so I buy them and then I either discover that they are totally useless or if I do find one pair I like I usually lose them within the space of a week. With that in mind I wish to try out a new thoery. Maybe if I buy ridiculous expensive ones (I mean £22.50..come on!) I might have more of an incentive to keep them safe and they might actually do their job properly. This tweezerman pair from Benefit come with a hefty price tag but look adorable and might just be worth buying to test drive my theory! John Lewis currently have them in stock.

The husband and I collect lego minifigures. We are not ashamed. I have abosolutely no idea how it started and can’t quite believe we now have 17 of them lining a shelf in our kitchen but somehow it has happened and now I’m ever so slightly addicted! I think it’s the thrill of not knowing which one you will get. Series 7 has just been released and my favourite has to be the bunny-suit guy, I will go far to find him and have saved him a space on the shelf. (wow… we are weird!)

I need to get some lipstick and I need the perfect peachy pink shade. Whimsical from Topshop may just be the answer. I haven’t actually tried any Topshop make-up myself yet but I have read some great reviews on various blogs and it seems to be good quality for how much you pay. At £8 I think I might have to give this a go and hope that it is worthy of my first proper lipstick purchase!

This Julia Dress by Jones and Jones for Topshop caught my eye whilst browsing the site the other day. I’m tragically bad and picky when shopping on the internet and so it surprises me when I find something I like! This dress is stunning, it’s got pastel shades, sequins and pleats! Need an occasion that justifies buying it now!!!

I’ve always applied liquid foundation with my fingertips up until very recently. I purchased Benefit’s Hello Flawless Oxygen Wow a few weeks ago and bought a cheapy foundation brush to use with it because I do know that fingertips aren’t the best method of application but this Real Techniques stippling brush is the one I really want. I seen some great reviews and other bloggers are raving about it. I think I’ll wait a while and see how I get on with the Benefit HFOW before purchasing one of these from Boots.

Gosh this nails inc collection is a dream!!! QVC always have great little sets that you can’t get elsewhere and this cupcake one has to be the best I’ve seen so far. I love the name (they really are cupcake icing colours- makes me think especially of the Hummingbird Bakery!) and the shades are perfect for summer. I’ve already got Haymarket and colours really similar to the yellow (Notting Hill Carnival) and peach (Wellington Square) so that’s the main reason I won’t be purchasing this set just yet but that doesn’t mean I can’t pop it on my wish list and suggest that other people get their hands on it!

A kindle has been on my little wish list in my head for a while now. I keep having little debates with myself as to whether it’s actually worth it as I read a lot of Agatha Christie books and other detective novels that can be picked up for a pretty cheap price from second hand book shops… But then I look at how brilliant it would be to have all my books on a little device that I could carry with me on commutes etc. I’m semi hoping that someone will buy me one of these without me asking because then I don’t have to make the decision myself. I’m so silly!

What are you wanting this week? And any of these things take your fancy?
