A Birthday Wish List

Birthday beauty and fashion wish list


The countdown for my birthday has officially begun. Only 7 more days! Yippee! Seeing as there's not long left to wait, I thought it would be appropriate to put a little wish list together of a few things that I have my eye on. 

It's only been cold for a few days but my lips are already suffering. They have become even more dry and chapped than ever before. I ran out of my beloved Burt's Bees lip balm this week and the one that I'm using now is not very good. So I thought I'd pop two items on to my wish list to help sort out my poor lips. The first thing I have my eye on is the famous Lush Bubble gum lip scrub to get rid of all that dry flakiness I've been getting. I've heard so many great things about it and it looks lush (get it? *wink wink*). The next product that I would love to get my mitts on is another beauty blogger classic, the Nuxe Reve De Miel lip balm. This is supposedly the best lip balm out there, so I have high hopes for it!

If you read my top 5 Autumn/Winter fashion essentials post then you'll know how much I want a blanket cape/wrap. I love this black and white one from New Look - you can't go wrong with a bit of black and white! I think it would look lovely with a belt and my black floppy hat (can't wait to show you that in an outfit post. It's so PRETTY!). I'm also loving that beige hat from River Island. I spotted it the other day and I'm now obsessed with having a beige hat in my wardrobe. Speaking of hats, I'm also loving other accessories like scarves (I love me a scarf!), jewellery and sunglasses at the moment. I know the summer has well and truly gone at this stage but you still need a good pair of sunglasses in your winter wardrobe. Who else loves those sunny but crisp days? These rose gold aviators would be perfect for those type of days.

It wouldn't be right if I didn't have any skincare items on my wish list and there's not one but two that I have my eye on. I could do a whole post dedicated to all the skincare products that I would like but I managed to narrow it down to two (harder task than it sounds). The first one is an oldie but a goodie and it's La Roche Posay's famous Effaclar Duo+ . This stuff is amazing, it helps keep spots at bay and fades blemish marks! It ran out a few weeks ago and my skin hasn't been in great condition since. Effaclar Duo+ I need you in my life! The next product, Superfacialist by Una Brennan Rose moisture mask, is a new one but I think it would be a lovely winter mask and you know how dry my skin gets so this sounds just perfect. I've wanted to try her range of products for ages so I would be really happy if I got one of her products. Family, take note! Ha ha!

I also threw in some Real Techniques makeup brushes as you can never have too many brushes, am I right? I use their blush, powder and expert face brush on a daily basis and I love them. I've had my eye on the core collection for ages and I'm especially keen to try out the buffing and contour brushes.

What's on your wish list? And is there anything I need to add to mine? ;-)

Love,
Cliona xx

  3. Effaclar Duo is a must have. So is Reve de Miel. Hope you get everything you're hoping for, not only material things. :)

  5. I really like all your choices! I've been looking at the Nuxe Reve De Miel lip balm too because my lips are really raw at the moment. If you haven't already, I'd advise tasting the lip scrub before buying because I thought I wanted the bubblegum one and when I tried it I nearly got sick! haha x
