SHOPPING: London Wishlist


Since retiring my weekly wishlist style Tuesday Ten posts at the beginning of the month I've accumulated a fair few additions to my shopping list. At the moment I'm saving all of my pennies for my trip to London next week as my urge to hit the department stores and Oxford Street grows by the day. In order to make the most of the few purchases I'll be able to afford I'm aiming to only really buy things that are much easier to get in London itself, particularly make-up as I like to be able to see it in the flesh before committing to a purchase.

When I was in London two years ago I was actually in Selfridges on the day that the Charlotte Tilbury collection launched but it was so mobbed I couldn't get near the stand. I have a few bits on my wishlist from Charlotte Tilbury, in particular the Fallen Angel eyeshadow palette and the Lip Cheat pencil in Pillow Talk, so hopefully I'll still want them as much after trying them at the counter. Also from Selfridges I love this Escape The Ordinary journal by Kate Spade, I'm currently Kate Spade obsessed and I think this is such a cute little notebook. I'll never have enough notebooks!

I've heard so many good things about Kiko so I'll hopefully get a chance to pick something up whilst I'm there. At the moment I have my eye on their Invisible Powder but I'm also considering their foundation too. My final beauty type item on the list is a nail polish from And Other Stories who seem to have a beautiful range of shades. The one at the top of my list is Passementerie Blush which looks like a bold coral.

I would absolutely love some MUJI storage for my make up, but I don't think it'll fit in my suitcase... However after seeing their candles on Bethan's blog a while ago I found this delicious sounding Berry Tart fragrance that I might just manage to squeeze in. On the subject of make up storage I am in love with Liberty prints, so this wash bag would be a very welcome purchase! Plus I love the Liberty carrier bags (I like nice carrier bags) so that would be an added bonus.

Finally I've wanted to make a purchase from Monki for a really long time now but I was always a bit apprehensive in terms of their sizing so I'm going to grab the opportunity to try before I buy and head to their store. I love this beautiful mint coat which would be perfect for spring layering and I think these sunglasses are gorgeous too.

Whilst I'm in London I also want to visit Victoria's Secret to get myself some new PJs, Harrods to pretend I'm fancy and the photobooth in the Oxford Street Topshop. Any other entertainment, shopping, food & drink recommendations would be fantastic!
