Birthday Wishlist!

Today I thought I would post something different instead of my usual 'Wishful Wednesday' as it is my birthday this Friday so I decided to do a birthday post featuring a few items that I plan to buy with my birthday money, some items on here I have asked for specifically.

So here are five items that I would wish to receive on my birthday! 

Real Techniques Stippling Brush

I have seen this brush mentioned all over the blogging world and so many of you rave about this. At a price of £11.99 I have always been put off buying it, I mean, that is quite expensive for one brush. However, I do plan to pick one of these up as a treat with my money, very excited!

Yellow and Blue Print Snood.

This snood has been featured on my site before in a previous 'wishful wednesday' post, I found it a few weeks ago and I still love it so much, I have asked for this item off my mom. It isn't very often I see something which I know I must have, I mean we all see things we want but this was something that has stuck in my mind for weeks! This can be purchased from River Island at a full price of £10...I noticed today it is £5 in the sale so grab one folks!!

MAC Creme Cup Lipstick

I swatched this product in Selfridges in the Bull Ring last week, oh my it is beautiful! I really do like this lip shade. I was undecided between this and Please me but I couldn't find that shade to swatch on my hand and the counter was so busy so I didn't ask (I don't like bothering people haha!); this costs £13.50 from the MAC website as well as Debenhams.

Soap and Glory Supecat Eyeliner

I've had this product before and I loved it, however I cannot remember how long it lasted me, I felt not that long but I'm going to give it another go and keep a note of how long it lasts before it starts to dry up; this costs £6 from Boots.

Graceland Heeled Hiker Shoes (no longer available on site).

I love, love, love these shoes! I first came across these the weekend whilst reading a blog post by Terri Lowe, she had purchased these shoes that day and featured them on her post. I adored them from the off set, so much so that I have ordered them already with birthday money I haven't technically received yet, hehe! These cost just £19.99 and there is free delivery from the Deichmann website. I'm very picky when it comes to shoes, I have lived in Converse for years as I can never find anything I like so when I see some shoes that I like I'm all over them!

So there we have it, five items that I would love to get my hands on for my birthday! Well, four as the shoes are on the way. 


  1. Lovely wishlist!

    I like the look of those Hiker shoes, I saw them on another blog the other day, I hope they've got some in black too, I need to go check them out :)

    1. Hey Laura, it was probably the same blog I saw them on, that would be Terri Lowe's :)

      They don't have this style in black, however, there is a similar pair in black. I think the heel is slightly less chunky, and there is no fluffy edge. They are really nice though and I contemplated getting those instead of the brown ones.

      Thank you :) xx

  2. I really want a real technique brush too, have a great birthday :) x

    1. Thank you Hayley :)
      I've wanted it for a while now, I must get it! :P xx

  3. Creme Cup looks like such a pretty colour! I love felt tip eyeliner pens, so that Soap and Glory one does intrigue me. I highly recommend Real Techniques brushes, I have the stippling brush and it's a nice, versatile, all-rounder type brush :)

    1. It is such a nice colour, do swatch it if you get chance!
      The Soap and Glory one is really nice, the only reason I have put off re-buying it until now is because I have a gel one to use up...I'm thinking what the hell! :P

      Thanks for your opinions on the brush :)
