Blogmas Day 8: Christmas Wishlist

So, what’s on my list to Santa this year, well here’s a peak! This year I honestly didn’t know what to ask for so these are just things I’ve seen and thought, that looks cool!

Fantastic Beasts & Where to Find Them Illustrated Edition

I am a huge fan of the illustrated editions because they’re just so beautiful and well thought out. So, of course, I put this at the top of my list. I can’t wait to see what the illustrator came up with.

Harry Potter A History of Magic

I’m going to be going to the exhibition in London and after flicking through this in my local Waterstones I’m so excited for the exhibition but, at the same time, I’m not keen on having to carry this hefty hardback around London so hopefully, I’ll find it under the tree!

Guylian Chocolates

Do these even need explaining. They’re so, so good. SO GOOD.

Nike Sports Bra & Bottoms

I want to get really into my fitness because I’ve been slipping (again!) so I’d love some new work out clothes. Also, can we appreciate how beautiful these are that I found on Pinterest it’s a shame they’re from the 2014 collection!

A History of Britain in 21 Women

I saw this on Leena Norm’s Youtube channel (link here) and it sounds amazing and I want to know more about some of the incredible women from my own country.

Reptar Pop Vinyl

The Rugrats were a huge part of my childhood, I saw this and thought it looked so adorable. He’s so tiny and cute!

Harry Potter Primark – Anything! 

The new range at Primark has made me fall in love, I want all of it. I just said to my family if you’re stuck just pop into Primark there’ll be something!

My Topshop Dress Wish List

img_6822-1

Recently I’ve been getting a little bit obsessed with finding clothes to wear when I’m either working or going to nice events. It cropped up on me that I only have a few smart dresses and more than a few smart events that I have to attend. While I’ve picked up a small set of working outfits for as soon as I get a job (which I’m hoping will be sooner rather than later). I decided to try something a little different on my blog tonight (part of my new blog plans, I can’t wait for you to see!) and show you my Topshop Spring/Summer 2016 wishlist.

I love this cute little dress! Now, I am partial to a good black dress but I also love colour, so this is the best of both worlds. It’s also something that I could be comfortable in whilst still looking smart. I would definitely pair this with either a pair of converse or Doc Martens for everyday and then some black pumps for work.

Something a little smarter and brighter for the next dress on my wishlist. I find this shape really flattering on my body shape, i.e. having a set of boobs and a bum. It’s something I’d have to try on but would look great with a pair of low heels for something a little more formal. Screen Shot 2016-05-03 at 19.18.42

This is definitely the most feminine of the dresses on this list. I’m not really a girly girl but I could definitely see myself wearing this to a wedding or summer party. I love the rose design and the fact it look painted, yet expensive! It definitely looks very expensive too so I’m impressed with the price!

Although I would say this is more of a Autumn/ Winter dress, something I’d pair with some thick black tights or leggings and some boots. Screen Shot 2016-05-03 at 19.18.02

This on the other hand is very cute and summery, something I’d love to add to my wardrobe to give it a bit of a lighter tone. There’s so many colours on here too there would lots of choice for accessories too. Screen Shot 2016-05-03 at 19.16.51

This feels like it is a great staple piece. I’ve seen these absolutely everywhere and I was so happy because you can do so much with them! Want a laid back look? Throw  on a band t-shirt and some Doc Martens. If I need something a little smarter for work or an event then I could just wear a stripy long sleeved shirt. Sorted.

I love this so, so much. It’s a cute 1940s kind of style and a beautiful simple design too so that it’s pretty but not to in your face. This would definitely be a great dress for smart casual.Screen Shot 2016-05-03 at 19.11.33

Again this is something that can work both ways depending on accessories. In the summer it can be a light dress just to chill out in and then in the winter a thick roll neck or long sleeved t-shirt.
