Wish list

Every year when my birthday is approaching I like to make a wish list for my husband. Mainly because he is useless but also because I am so picky. The list normally has a wild card option. (Range Rover)

This year I thought it might be nice (and beneficial) to make my list public, ya know to put the pressure on.

Turning 33 doesn’t sit well with me. I have noticed more wrinkles and I definitely sleep more. A good weekend usually means we have been to a garden centre and I like to have throws nearby in case I feel the chill.

It’s a constant adjustment. I question whether I can get away with dungarees. I have this internal battle about what people think and also about not actually caring.

First up is this Oliver Bonas clutch

I just think it’s perfect for white jeans and Camis. Also I normally only shop with Oliver Bonas for homeware so I was surprised when I spotted this little love. At only £25 I think it’s a bargain.

Olive Clothing Have so many smock dresses that I’m in love with. I love a smock because it hides all my wobbly areas.
This simple white one would make a great wardrobe staple. I’m trying to shop smarter while we are renovating the house as money is much tighter. This would be so versitle.

I feel like I new shoe a lot. I definitely spend more on shoes than cosmetics and clothing put together. I’m not a Carrie Bradshaw wannabe as I always end up buying flats. A couple of sandal faves at the moment are these Cara black and gold ones, along with the classic Salt Water sandals. 
I also want a new camera. I am in love with this Olympus one but it’s a little pricey.

I have been spending more time photographing for my Instagram and blog recently and I think maybe it’s time to upgrade from using my iPhone camera. I don’t really feel like I am a blogger yet. Probably because I haven’t mastered winged eyeliner and boho waves.

I have wanted a new statement ring for a while.

This one is from Not on the high street and I love it. Everything has to be a variation on mint green, aqua green, turquoise or pastel green for me to fall in love with it. (Have you seen my smeg on Instagram)

Finally I really want an ercol cowhorn chair.

This will be an eBay hunt and probably something I treat myself to. No it doesn’t have anywhere to go. I just love it.

    I’m turning 33 this month too and I definitely notice that the wrinkles are increasing – my brother gave me wrinkle cream for Christmas! 😖 The smock dress is beautiful, I might just have to add it to my list too! Happy Birthday! x
