Birthday Wish List and **Giveaway**

It is my birthday in a week! I’m usually rather grumpy around my birthday but this year I’ve decided to be more positive about turning another year older. Besides, things are falling into place and I have so much to be grateful for including my blog and all the wonderfully amazing people I have met because of it.

It took me a while to think about what I might like for my birthday but as you can see - once I got going, I couldn’t stop. Virtual shopping is just so much fun!



1. My hair has been through a self-induced rough patch lately and I desperately need to upgrade my hair care products. I have heard a lot of positive things about Pureology. Anyone currently using it?
2. Correct me if I’m wrong but I think it’s every girl’s dream to own one of these 27Pinkx make-up organisers, right?!?
3. I’m totally yearning for these black brogues from Dune London and they’re on sale!
4. The ‘Saint Germain’ MAC lipstick desperately wants to join my collection.
5. There are such cute onesies available at the moment like this cat print one from Mr Price. Cotton On also currently has a fluffy pink bunny onesie that I’m obsessed with.
6. I recently received a sample of Kerastase’s Elixir Ultime with Imperial Tea for colour-treated hair and now I’m hooked. It smells amazing and works wonders on my hair. Read about the Kerastase product that I currently use here.
7. Yes, Melissa shoes are STILL on my wish list. Read more about them here.
8. As I’m sure most of you know by now - I’m ring crazy!
9. Sadly my Dermalogica ultracalming mist is nearly finished. Sniff sniff. It is such a great spray-on toner that relieves sensitivity and leaves my skin refreshed.
10. Anything from Typo makes me very happy!
11. And the same goes for anything from Lush! I’ve currently got my eye on the Bubblegum lip scrub.
12. After seeing the Ted Baker display in Stuttafords a few weeks back, I can’t get it out of my head. A Ted Baker wallet would make my life!
13. My Stila lip glaze that I spoke about here is finished and its replacement is long overdue.

Now as cool as receiving presents might be, I love giving gifts even more! Because it’s my birthday I will be giving away a little goodie bag that I put together out of my own pocket.

Guess Vanity Bag | Sorbet Body Wash | Kiehls Body Butter | Essence Nail Polish | Maybelline Baby Lips | Catrice Blush | Bourjois Brushes
