May time wishlist.

It's a the first day of a brand new month (which reminds me, I need to change my calendar!) and with that brings lots of different events.  I will finish university for the year on the 27th, which seems to have completely flown by, this time last year I was revising copious amounts to get to where I am today.  It's also a pretty big birthday month with my brothers and uncle on the 7th, my youngest niece on the 25th and also some of my friends.  At the end of the month i'll be preparing myself to start my first internship, which means new wardrobe additions, gotta look good in the office!  With student loan due and an impending pay day, I've been screen shopping (onlines window equivalent) for some things I'll need to get me through this month! 

I've been eyeing this up for months, and after watching Fleurs video on how she uses it I was convinced further.  I swear by my GHDs although, I find I can never get the desired look when I use it to wave my hair.  This has the same technology as the conical wand, only it's flat.  I think this would help me create different looks for day to day in the office, as well as giving me another option to poker straight hair in the evening.  Have any of you tried this?  I'd love to know your thoughts.  

H&M; £29.99
I've been after a new light-weight blazer for the S/S months and especially now as I wont want to have to carry a heavy jacket with me to London and back, this seems the perfect fit.  It comes in many colours but I've been loving terracotta this season.  

ASOS; £45
Floral wedges, perfect.  These would look great with a pair of shorts or a dress or even leggings.  A great  everyday shoe (although I would pack flats for walking to the office!)

ASOS (River Island); £37
Unfortunately, when it comes to practicality my Chiltern just isn't big enough to fit everything in!  When travelling around London I'll need room for a book, my diary and of course a pair of flats!  This isn't too big and isn't too small, just the right size.  

Superdrug; £6.00ish 
I've heard so many rants and raves over this product that I can't wait to try it.  It's the Sleek contour kit including a highlighter as well and a contour powder.  Thinner face minus the dodgy size zero diet, perfection!

I've also been on the look out for a neutral eye palette as the Naked palette never seems to be in stock.  Corrie over at Dizzybrunette3 picked up a great palette from the MUA Pro section in Superdrug.  It has a lot of colours that I could combine to make a great soft smokey eye, and get this, it's only £4.00. 

What are your May time wants?  Remember, if you have tried or use the Babyliss Waving Wand, leave your comments/opinions below! 


  1. really like that sleek contour kit :P

  2. I've got the Sleek Contour Kit too. It's pretty good actually, but sometimes the highlight can be a little too pink for some complexions so it's worth trying out the highlight on the bank of your hand and checking it in daylight.

    Also, LOVE that blazer! x

  3. love that jacket and bag. for may I would really like the perfect pair of moccasins, a black sheer skirt and a denim vest shirt thing that ties into one of those knots =)
