So, tomorrow is my birthday and I turn 38!? I thought I would do a wishlist post, even though I know I’m not getting much (I got some new UGGs pre Christmas in the sale), I thought it would be fun to do a post on the things I would have if I could…

MARC BY MARC JACOBS Rue printed faux patent-leather iPad Mini case £60 at Net-a-Porter

MARC BY MARC JACOBS
Rue printed faux patent-leather iPad Mini case £60 at Net-a-Porter

I love swapping up cases on my accessories and have had my eye on a new case for my iPad Mini for a while. I adore this one from Marc Jacobs. Firstly, I love cats (Tell me you don’t have that famous viral YouTube song in your head now?) and just think this is brilliant. I couldn’t personally justify £60 on an iPad Mini case, but if it was a present, well that’s a different story.

Rocha. John Rocha Women's rose bracelet watch at Debenhams £64.00

Rocha. John Rocha Women’s rose bracelet watch £64 at Debenhams

Now, I shouldn’t need a new watch, for I only got my Michael Kors watch 2 years ago, but it broke – devastatingly so may I add. As Mark got it imported for me specially from the US I have since swore not to have a super expensive watch again. I like the look of the Rocha one at Debenhams. I like rose gold and its hard to find a chunkier watch that does not have any bling on it these days. I’m not really a blingy kind of girl. This one is currently £64 in the sale.

Inspire Black Leather Buckle Hem Biker Jacket £35 at Newlook

Inspire Black Leather Buckle Hem Biker Jacket £35 at Newlook

I’ve been searching everywhere for a new LEATHER biker jacket. I didn’t want a faux leather one and struggle with sizing. You see I’m generally a 16-18 top, but have VERY broad shoulders. This means I always have to go up at least 1 size. Finding one that doesn’t look huge, fits well everywhere and looks good on me is… Well, let’s say I’ve been looking for 6 weeks now and this is what I am actually getting for my birthday from Mark. Now, I have looked at this one several times in the sale at Newlook and just wish it wasn’t an online exclusive so I could try it on – I may just have to bite the bullet and order it and see.

Drape Back Jumper £30 at ASOS

Drape Back Jumper £30 at ASOS

I haven’t bought any new jumpers in the sale which is almost unheard of for me. This isn’t in the sale but I adore it! I love that the front of the jumper is plain, yet the back is just so flattering and beautiful. At £30 I don’t think its a bad price and being a light grey colour, means it would be acceptable for Spring wear too.

Clarins Be Long Mascara £21 at House of Fraser

Clarins Be Long Mascara £21 at House of Fraser

Ahh… This mascara has been on my wishlist for a long time now. Ever since I read ReallyRee’s review on it and knew it had to be mine. I haven’t bought a high end mascara for a long time and struggle finding ones that don’t add volume, just length. Due to all my lash conditioning products I have used I have great volume now and many mascaras can look clumpy. This one looks beautiful, the packaging looks amazing and it just NEEDS to be in my collection.

Jo Malone™ Vanilla & Anise Cologne, 30ml £39 at John Lewis

Jo Malone™ Vanilla & Anise Cologne, 30ml £39 at John Lewis

I have a huge fragrance collection, so struggle justifying buying more to add to it – which is why I usually get them as gifts. I have always wanted to try one of the Jo Malone fragrances. They are heavily talked about and I’ve heard the Vanilla and Anise is the one that will probably take my fancy. Nothing says birthday’s like a fragrance as a present, right?

NARS Some Like It Hot nude lip kit £35 at Selfridges

NARS
Some Like It Hot nude lip kit £35 at Selfridges

Now, I currently can’t wear lipstick at all due to a psoriasis breakout on my upper lip and any lipstick just makes it worse. However, if there was one set I could have on stand by for when it has cleared up, it would be this. I adore the formula of NARS lipstick. My favourite discontinued one (Little Darling at least I believe it was discontinued) is like a prized possession that I only ever wear on special occasions. I am a huge nudes fan and think this giftset is perfect for the girl who loves her nude lippy!

Urban Decay Black Market 24/7 Glide On Eye Pencil 6 Piece Collection £18.20 at BeautyBay

Urban Decay Black Market 24/7 Glide On Eye Pencil 6 Piece Collection £18.20 at BeautyBay

I know what you are thinking, why is the Urban Decay Naked 3 palette not on here? In honesty, I don’t actually want it. I rarely use my other Naked palettes. However, I wear liner on a daily basis and have always wanted to try an Urban Decay liner. I think the price of this set is amazing, working it out at just over £3 per liner! I spend twice that on 1 liner! Amazing quality and a good price, this is definitely on my birthday wish list!

theBalm Nude 'Tude Eyeshadow Palette - Naughty £26 at Feel Unique

theBalm Nude ‘Tude Eyeshadow Palette – Naughty £26 at FeelUnique

And no birthday wishlist would be complete without an eye palette right? I love theBalm products and have always wanted to try their shadows. The Nude ‘Tude set is perfect for me as I am preliminarily a nude shadow girl. Its currently out of stock at FeelUnique which as I am doubtfully getting it doesn’t bother me. I just love the colour swatches I’ve seen, love the names and love the packaging.

So, that concludes my 38 years old birthday wishlist. 24 months and 1 day till I reach the big 40! Still, can’t say I’m actually worried about hitting 40. Its how young you feel inside right?

Lots of Love,

Mel xxxx
