Like most of the items that make it to my wishlist again this month most of then are quite expensive, which at the moment is not a good thing – I have next to no money and what I do is being quickly spent on my college course. Not fun times.
This top is surprisingly similar to the top that I’m wearing now except this one has longer sleeves. Even the colour is the same as the bottom of my top, I’m loving this colour at the moment. I’m going through a phase where I love anything that’s slightly on the loose side, I have a ridiculous amount of oversized jumpers that I live in. I’m talking buying a UK size 20 jumper instead of the 6 that I normally am, the looks that I got of the lady on the till when she asked who it was for and i said me were hilarious.
If you’ve been following this blog for a while then you’ll already know of my love of statement rings, if not then you now know and I hope you enjoy your visit. In my opinion the bigger the better and seeing as this one would cover at least three and maybe just a bit of my little finger then this was always going to be high up on my must haves list. I love that even though the actual design of the ring is incredibly simple, it still manages to make a big statement. What I don’t like about this so much is the price, at £85 it’s a little on the pricey side, so as much as I love it I don’t think that there’s much chance of me owning it. A girl can dream though, can’t she?
I think that this is going to be another thing that goes on my as much as I love it, I don’t think that I’m going to be lucky enough to end up owning it. I’m thinking the closest that I’m going to get to owing this is coming up with a DIY. Cue sad face. I couldn’t tell you exactly why I fell in love with this necklace but, it was love at first sight when I came across it on Asos. The colours in it are just gorgeous.
The Chelsea boots that I brought in the kids section at Asda a couple of months ago are fast wearing out. I love them to bits, they go with everything, I can walk around in them all day and they keep my feet nice and warm. Honestly if you haven’t got a pair I demand that you go out and get a pair and while you’re out if you can fit in anything from the kids section go and have a look, occasionally there are some amazing pieces that you can pick up at really good prices. If I could realistically afford it these River Island would be the perfect replacement. Especially with the metal strip around the toe area that sets them apart from other Chelsea boots a little.
Really starting to wish that I could get a job that wasn’t just each summer, the money from this year’s never going to last.
Alice in Wonderland is probably the only book that I have ever read more than once. It’s one that even as I’ve gotten older I still love, although if I’m being honest I would much rather sit down and watch the Disney version – reading can be a bit of a struggle for me. But it was my love of Alice in Wonderland that attracted me to this piece. It’s one of my favourite quotes from the book and I just think that it’s amazing how it’s been put onto a recycled silver plated spoon, something that I’ve never seen before. It just made me smile. I then went and had a bit of a look around her shop, there were quite a few things that I would honestly want to buy from there. This keyring was probably my favourite, it made me laugh so much.
Having said that it finding this funny did make me feel slightly childish, but it made me laugh so I don’t think I really care.After yesterdays Lego brick necklace and after looking at what items have been attracting me on Etsy recently, I think I’m going through another one of my bright colours phases. Out of the two I think I prefer the yellow one as it’s slightly brighter. What drew me to these wasn’t the colour it was more the interesting texture of rope, and the tassels, I’m a sucker for tassels.Part of me thinks that I may have already posted a similar set of earrings a couple of months ago, but I think that that highlights how much I like this style. I love the bold graphic style and the combination of the colours. Alice Rebecca Potter is a brilliant illustrator. Her bold simplistic style really appeals to me. I’ve been looking for a printed shopper for a while and this one ranks highly on my list of ones that I’m considering. The rest of the items in her shop are too amazing and again I would buy many of them including this London themed print.
If you want to have a look at more of her work take a look at her website here.
I don’t think that words can explain just how beautiful this ring is. It’s just wow… That’s about all I can say about it. That and there is no way on Earth that I could ever afford this ring. At $298 with $32 shipping to the UK that isn’t exactly what I would call affordable, but if you’ve got the money then I would definitely say get it – I know I would.
It feels like forever since I’ve done one of these posts – actually when I think about it probably is. It’s also quite late on in the month to do one as well.
One of the big things that I want this month is one of the stitched note books from Paperchase. Unlike most of the things that I put on my wish lists, I do actually need one these for the fortnightly lectures that start in a few weeks time. I can’t decide what one I want though there’s so many of them and they’re all so cute and adorable. I think I might have to go into my local store sometime over the next couple of days and have a look at them in person.
This one I’ve accepted that I’m not going to be able to afford, it’s either this or the deposit for my art trip to New York. And I’ve gone for New York, it’s somewhere that I’ve always wanted to go. The Cambridge Satchel Company do make some amazing bags and it’s one of those things that I think will have to go on my list for the future and it is one of those things that I will get, I don’t think that the classic satchel will be a big no no any time soon.
This one I’m thinking could be a good use for all the Boots points that I’ve clocked up over the summer. I’ve been looking into getting a nail varnish like one of these for a while now, I was a little dubious about how well they would work until I saw someone at work wearing some that looked really good. So I think it’s time to invest in one. I love the colours of the Barry M ones too. I’m thinking of trying either the purple or the blue one, not sure which one to go for. I think I’ll eventually end up getting both, I just can’t quite afford to get them both on my points yet, so the second will have to wait for me to have a few more meal deals.
I’m loving cable knit jumpers at the moment and this would go perfectly with the burgundy pair of jeans that I brought that I have had a nightmare finding something that doesn’t look hideous to go with them. I brought them thinking that they would go with pretty much everything that I owned, turns out they were just slightly the wrong shade for what I had planned, but the colour was too amazing for me to take them back.
I think that the closest that I’m ever going to get to owning this ring is my Daisy by Marc Jacobs perfume. As a student anything Marc by Marc Jacobs is totally beyond my price range. If I dove into my savings from the summer I could afford it, but again it’s back to the this or New York thing I had earlier. It’s an amazing ring, enough of a statement that it looks good, but at the same time it doesn’t look as if the front of it’s annoyingly heavy. I want it so badly it’s ridiculous.
Is there anything that you’re particularly lusting after this month.
I love this ring. It’s just so unique, a definite conversation starter. It’s just amazing. Need I say any more.
I wouldn’t say that my style really includes vintage in it but I think that for this Versace shirt I might be able to make an exception. I really like how the whites not a flat white and that the pattern isn’t in your face, it’s nice and subtle.
I love this type of dress and although when I first saw the print it reminded me of the interior of our families caravan, its really growing on me. It’s one of those things that if I could really justify dipping into my New York Fund for then I would, but I don’t think that I really need it, so instead it’ll stay in my imaginary wardrobe and somebody else will be lucky enough to get it in their wardrobe.
Unlike the last shirt this shirts print has a slightly bolder print, though still not overpowering. Such a shame that I would want it to be a closeish fitting shirt and it’s a medium and would be huge on me.
My limited knowledge of knitting and crocheting would leave me thinking that this amazing bag has been crocheted. Having said that I wouldn’t swear on it and if anybody knows otherwise then feel free to correct me. Anyways this is such a unique bag. I want one so much, as a student I don’t really think that I can afford it but there’s always Christmas.
Out of everything I’ve missed about having no internet connection recently, I think I’ve missed Etsy the most. It feels so good to be back. Instead of working on my College Summer Project that’s due in next week (I know it’s ridiculous that I haven’t even started there and I’ve already got heaps of work to do), I’ve been spending way too many hours window shopping.
If I owned an iPad this would be the case for me. It’s a shame that I don’t really considering how much I love this case. It is something that I’ve considered saving up for several times but at the moment it’s either an iPad or a trip to New York next spring. Somehow I think that New York wins that contest.
With this I really can’t make my mind up as to how much I like it. Part of me loves it but another part, admittedly slightly smaller is saying no. There was definitely an instant attraction there though.
Normally on an every day basis, if I have my own way I have absolutely nothing to do with spiders, I hate the damn things. They move in such an unnatural way and just look freaky. But when it comes to this ring I think I might be able to make an exception. Rings are one of my favourite things in the entire world and the bigger the better. This ring is simply a work of art. As a mere student I can’t afford it but that doesn’t take away from the fact that this is one of the best rings that I have ever seen.
This shirt is just amazing. The colour combination is just perfect, it’s not too light and it’s not too dark. I think this seems like it would make a good DIY job.
This looks like it has the potential to be the softest, most snuggleable (is that a real word) snood ever. And it’s in such a beautiful colour. Shame it’s summer here in England, I’d feel weird buying something intended for cold weather while I’m busy eating ice creams.
I really have missed this.
So okay, I know you’ve already seen this picture from this post, but this ring has to be my best bargain. It’s from one of the very few trips that I have made into Primark, I think that I got it sometime around Christmas for only a pound. Absolute bargain. I was honestly prepared for it to fall apart or something similar quite quickly after I got it, but more than seven months of regular wear later and it’s still as good as new. I’m proud of it, most of my more expensive rings tend to look a little worse for wear after this amount of time.
I have a feeling that when I got it, it was one o’clock on a Saturday afternoon and I decided that if I was going to wait in the queue with my friend then I needed to actually be buying something. This ring and the other ring from Primark in this post are the result of that. Both of which I think are absolutely amazing.
I have two things to apologise for. The first being that I haven’t posted in ages, I promise that I wasn’t deserting you, I’ve just been hideously busy with trying to meet my coursework deadlines. I’m talking starting at seven and not finishing till ten or eleven each day. The second is that today and tomorrow I’m staying in a kinda hotel thing until Monday so I’m posting on my phone, which I’ve never tried before. This means that the photos aren’t going to be amazing and that sometimes the auto correct on my phone will do funny things.
But here goes anyways.
Today I’m wearing my Topshop jeans, jumper and necklace with my Asda jeans, Primark ring and what’s left of last nights curly hair.
The shoes are definatly coming off later for the Easter egg hunt I’ve been told that I’m participating in later. I get the impression that it’ll be outside.
