Wishing on a star....Wish List #1




Hello fellow beauty addicts! Here is the start of what will definitely be a never ending wish list.... but a girl can dream though right? Starting a beauty blog doesn't help with these cravings when you're seeing so many great reviews and then that little voice in your head starts to say, "yes you really need this! imagine how amazingly soft your lips would be, imagine that salon styled hair at home!". These even find their way into my dreams at night. Yes I definitely had a dream that I was creating beautiful waves in my hair last night with the Babyliss Big Hair. Then to only wake up to the tangled mop that was really there.  I can hold my hands up and say I'm a Beauty Addict.

Some of these things will be no stranger to you as they've been around the beauty blogosphere for quite sometime. Like the Nars Orgasm blush and Laguna Bronzer. These were a huge hit for Nars and probably after realising this they have a compact for the two! be still my beating heart... this is so so tempting.

Never owning a Mac product of any sort I'm not really in the know when it comes to all their lippies. This Mac Diva lipstick really grabbed my attention while I was flicking through Hellocotton the other day. A make up artist called Sasha had created such a beautiful look with this on her blog, that it instantly went onto my wish list. 

Being really bored with my hair lately and always trying to recreate that at home salon feeling with my hair, the Babyliss Big Hair caught my eye like no other hair gadget has. A rotating brush combined with a hair dryer? Genius! I've never been talented when it comes to styling my hair. It's washed and blow dried in any old fashion and I'll accept whatever shape has happened in the process. But this really looks like it could be the answer to salon styled hair at home. And cuts out the really damaging part of hair straighteners! 

So lately I've been a bit lost with foundations, finding it so hard to have one that works for my skin and doesn't make me look dull or off colour. So I started to roll back the clock and thought of what foundations used to serve me well. And the only one that stood out in my mind was the Rimmel Recover foundation in Ivory. This was discontinued in a lot of shops like Boots and Superdrug where I would go to buy it, and at the time accepted that it had gone and that I needed to move onto another foundation. Only to recently find out that you can indeed still find it! Ebay will be my best option to get my hands on this, and it's so cheap as well, around 4-5 euros. 

While I'm not thinking of makeup I will probably be thinking of food, and other tasty treats. The Lush Bubblegum lip scrub has been floating around over blogs for sometime now too and with this winter weather, I think I can justify a little tasty lip scrub for my dry lips.

The Body Shop is one of my favourite places to go to find body butters like the Shea Body Butter I have in my wish list. I've just ran out of mine and this is really the best product for soft skin that I've ever tried. I am quite lazy when it comes to moisturising, but when I do, my skin is at its softest and happiest with this product.

So last but not least are these two beauts from Zara. If you read my "about me" post you will know I'm slightly addicted to this place. Poor Clément knows I am anyway since I drag him into every one I see if we're out shopping. It just makes me happy to go into Zara and browse through their beautiful collections even if I'm not buying. This "Nous et Vous" jumper caught my eye on their website, a casual light cream jumper with cute french writing that can be paired up with anything? Perfect. And a gorgeous geometric necklace too? these lovely pieces speak for themselves.


Whats on your wish list at the moment? Do you own any of these and like them? 

I love to hear from you and appreciate every comment and moment spent reading my blog :)



See you soon !

  14. The Lush Bubblegum Lip Scrub is AMAZING! It tastes soooo good and my lips have never felt softer! At first I was a bit wary because it is kind of expensive for what it is, but well worth the money!

    1. Hey Loni, I'm gonna be honest and say I really hadn't heard much of Mac until I moved to France. I lived in such a small town in Ireland where there's no Mac or Sephora or any of those big shops I would just stick to drug store brands, but now I can't wait to branch out and try Mac and Nars and all those brands :) thanks for your lovely comment xx
