Wish List #1

This post contains sponsored links

Alongside my new empties series, I wanted to start a wish list series. A place for me to document the things I am loving at the moment. Whilst I would love all the money to have a lavish, 'buy anything I want' lifestyle, that ain't ever going to happen. But, I thought I would put some of the bits I am loving here on my little space of the internet, so if in a month or two's time I am still lusting over them it shows that I really do want them. Also, it would be great to get your feedback on what I really should be buying and the things that I can give a miss.

1. Gucci Soho Disco Bag
I have been lusting over this bag for months, maybe even years. I first saw Zoe Sugg wearing it in one of her youtube videos and I had to have it. Since then I have seen this bag on so many people and my love for it has grown and grown. A Gucci bag isn't something (sadly) I can just pop down to the shops and buy. But I am determined to save up for it and make it mine one day.

2. Jo Malone Peony & Blush Suede CologneSince purchasing the Wood Sage & Sea Salt Cologne earlier in the year, Jo Malone now has my heart. This scent was really unexpected for me, normally I stay away from any floral fragrances, but this was completely not what I was expecting. Totally fell in love with it. Next month, I am going for a Jo Malone bridal consultation with my friend who is getting married very soon. So, I cannot promise that I won't be walking out with this fragrance. But I promise I will try to restrain myself.

3. Real Techniques Powder Bleu Brushes
This is definitely more of a want, not a need thing. But seriously, have you seen them. They are so stunning. I am an absolute lover of Real Techniques. They seem to be the only brush brand that I will buy at the moment. I already have lots of their brushes, but a girl can never have too many, right? I have a beautiful Oliver Bonas brush holder, and I am looking for the perfect brushes to go in there - not like all my other dirty brushes that I keep hidden away. Could this be them?

4. L'Occitane Skincare
If you're a regular reader, you know how I love a bit of skincare. L'Occitane has released a new range of beauty gift sets inspired by the South of France. Whilst I'd be lucky to get a trip to Weston-Super-Mare this year, this is about as close as I'll be getting to the South of France. Yes, so I know you're probably thinking 'a gift set for yourself?!' But, I actually love to buy myself a little gift set or two. Not cause I'm going all Parks and Rec 'treat yo self'. But actually cause its a really good way to try out a mixture of products, usually in a smaller size, to see if you actually like them. On their website, they have a beautiful 'Weekend Beauty Tote Bag' set that is full of smaller size products, perfect to take away with you or to test out to see if you like them. Also, the tote bag is incredibly pretty!

5. Chelsea/Ankle Boots
I really would like a decent pair of Chelsea/ankle boots to get me through the winter months this year. I have a pair from New Look that I wore last year, but the quality of them isn't that great and I feel it is starting to show on the boots. I have my trusty Timberland boots that I wear with jeans for work, but I would like something a bit smarter for the weekends. I am really loving these ones from Topshop. But do I want a heel or do I want them to be flat - decisions, decisions?

There you have it, part 1 of my wish list series. I do hope you have enjoyed and got a bit of inspiration for yourself. I would love for you to advise me on these purchases, both good and bad. Let me know in the comments, or find me on Instagram and Twitter.
Love, Kate x
