This is new to my blog and something I think is good for me to create on a monthly basis. A bit like therapy, I need to declare all of the things in my head in order to clear my mind… with this particular post I’m basically showing you all the things I am lusting after this month as a way to clear my mental shopping list!
The ‘I want everything’ list
1. Ghost Taylor Dress – £225
Love this colour, elegant design and silky finish, this is my perfect wedding guest dress for June. You could potentially out do the bride in this number.
2. Vans Disney Ariel Classics – £52
I’d seen that Vans had done a recent collaboration with Disney so I couldn’t resist not to put them in this month. They have numerous prints with some of your favourite characters, but the ones I’ve selected this month are the Little Mermaid ones – obviously!
3. New Look Stone Cut Out Floppy Hat £14.99
Everyone needs a summer hat! This one could work as beachwear but also doubled up for a festival ensemble. This is quite classic so you can work it into most summer looks.
Stunning purple glass from believe it or not… Dunelm! I didn’t think they did stuff like this until I went on a faux flower buying spree (they have an amazing range for that). This is perfect to keep delicate jewellery in or even a fancy place for your keys.
5. Liz Earle Botanical Aftersun Gel 200ml £15
I have been trying some other Liz Earle products and I adore this aftersun face gel. I used it when I went to Italy and it smells and feels divine. You don’t need much of the product as it’s small, but the fact it is small means it’s super for those of us who like to travel.
Currently sorting my garden out (watch out for my garden overhaul post) and I’m obsessed with planters and fun pots for my patio. Big fan of the Designers Guild anyway but I find this specific colour delicious! It really would brighten up a glum garden
Hurray it is festival season so I’m all about floral headbands! Accesorize is nice and cheap but makes some beautiful pieces.
I spotted a lady on the market the other day selling custom boxes with tins of lavender in it, which is why this is on my list this months picks. I’m a big fan of this french shabby chic inspired brand because some of the items are pure lush… I want everything they sell in my home!
9. Laura Ashley Yellow Shopper Bag (SALE) £21
Never would I have bought a bag from Laura Ashley but I spied this at the SS15 press day and realised I would love it to join my ever growing bag collection. A sweet lemon tone in a shopper size bag. Perfect for summer shopping trips and even as a travel handbag.
10. Oasis Dorsay Flat Point £22
I don’t always shop at Oasis but I fell in love with the colour of these flats. They’re a periwinkle shade and that makes them ideal for sunny days in summer dresses.
11. Sweatpea & Willow One Love Sign £20
I have been searching for an arrow wall sign of some kind. We joked at home that I should get a light up one near my office, but to be honest it would look daft! That being said we’re redecorating my back bedroom (post to follow soon) so I’m hunting for fun looks to create and this would look great.
12. Superdry 50’s Daisy Dress £49.99
You can’t have too many summer dresses right? But sometimes I don’t want to wear white or pale colours, number 1 because I look to pale myself and number 2, me wearing white asking for trouble… think BBQ food… so yes navy is a great choice! Plus Superdry dresses are made for us girls who like to be feminine but are not afraid to pop on our wellies and jump in the mud. Well that’s my analysis anyway… those big jumpers scream ‘take me camping’.
13. Canon Powershot N2 (White exclusive to Jessops) £249
Last but not least is the a-m-a-z-i-n-g camera. It’s the Canon Powershot N2 which I have in white. I’ve been using it for around 2 months and it’s gone everywhere with me, to the point that my Samsung NX1000 has been sat at home! It’s so light and easy to carry about but is perfect quality… I can even film my YouTube videos because the screen pops up and faces you!
There is all the things I’d like to buy this month! I hope you’ve liked some of my selections… what are you lusting after this month?
