After yesterday’s slightly dramatic post I’ve decided to throw a bit of bright fairy dust on my blog and share my May must haves (more like my birthday wishlist). For those of you that know it is my birth month. And not just my birth month but it was my blog 3rd birthday yesterday. I like to spend the month of May celebrating life. Many people dread their birthdays because of the aging factor but I choose to embrace it. Another year, another adventure, another opportunity to better myself. I know some people are quite baffled by the fact that I feel like I deserve a birth month but seriously why not? Why can I not celebrate myself? Why take life so seriously? And quite frankly one day is just not enough. So I choose to give myself a month. Disagreeing with me on my birth month is like disagreeing with me that unicorns and mermaids do exist and if that’s the case then I don’t know how we will ever be friends.
These are just a few items that I currently have my eye on and that I would love to incorporate into my “getting ready for Winter” box. So let’s get into it:
Nyx Lingerie Liquid Lipsticks – these are so amazing and I am obsessed with ever colours. The name itself is so seductive. I currently own 2 shades but would love to add to my collection. The best stocked Nyx stand I’ve ever come across is the “World of Nyx” at Clicks in Mall of Africa – be prepared to spend all your money. You can also purchase the products online – Clicks Lingerie Liquid Lipstick
Stila Magnificent Metals Glitter & Glow Liquid Eye Shadow – seriously LAWD have mercy! I want to dip myself into these eye shadows. Every time I see a YouTuber use them my heart melts. The colours are so beautiful and the sparkle is just out of this world. Obviously they are NOT available in South Africa but I will get my hands on them some how.
Nyx Contour and Highlight Palette – I honestly don’t know why I haven’t picked this up yet. I’ve heard such amazing feedback on it and I’m dying to try it. I’m always so obsessed with Nyx Products. Again this can be purchased in bigger Clicks stores.
Tarte Shape Tape Contour Concealer – If ever I have seen girls rave on about an incredible concealer it’s this one. Naturally I WANT IT AS WELL!!!!! And naturally you can’t purchase it in South Africa. You can however purchase it online – Tarte Cosmetics . Just in case anyone wants to send some my way, fair beige would probably suit me best. LOL! The concealer leaves your skin looking absolutely flawless with no flaking. The concealer is Vegan friendly.
Anastasia Beverly Hills Nicole Guerriero Glow Kit – What a mouth full. Winter is a gloomy time and what better way to brighten things up than a BOMB highlight kit. I always say that your highlighter needs to skin brighter than your future. This glow kit is not just a want, it’s a strong need. It will give me life during the colder season.
Ted Baker Wallet – Alright I know this is “materialistic” but just look at how pretty that wallet is. My current wallet is falling apart and I’ve had my eye on this beauty for a while. From the colour to the gold detail, its just so freaken PWETTY!!!! Anything pastel, glittery or floral – you have my full attention. A girl can dream right? Sometimes dreams do come true… we’ll see. There is a gorgeous Ted Baker store in Sandton City – across from the Edgars.
Leilani Felled Seam Coat from Forever New – I’m all about coats during winter. Forever New is generally my go to place for coats. This oversized cream coat is just gorgeous. It looks so warm. I can see myself dressing this coat up and down. I’m all about versatile items. Especially when they have a bit of a price tag on them. (Size 10 BTW)
Nike Rose Gold Metcon 3 – I will even admit that this is a ridiculous request but I can’t resist a pretty looking training shoe. I honestly have no better argument than that as to why they are on my must-have list. I don’t even train like a beast to deserve them. Maybe if I got them, it would motivate me to train like one. Hmmmm…interesting thought.
Oversized Knitwear – This is a winter MUST HAVE not just a May must have. My goal for Winter is being as comfortable and warm as possible. I came across quite a few gorgeous jerseys at Cotton On. Woolworths is also always a winner and as usual I have my eye on a few from Forever New.
The West Village Watch from Rosefield – As you can tell this brand has totally stolen my heart. I’m obsessed with the soft pink strap and rose gold detail. I’m not one for jewellery but this I will wear like crazy.
Teapot with Glass infuser from Yuppie Chef – For those of you that aren’t aware I LOVE my tea. This glass teapot is just gorgeous and I feel like I need it to make me a total tea fanatic. Infused teas are sooooo much more delicious. A strange must have but I am a rather strange individual.
Over the Knee Boots – I am still on the look out for the perfect pair. I’ve seen plenty online but they always seem to be sold out of my size. I guess that’s what I guess for being such a common size (size 6 in flats and 5 in heels). The perfect boot has a bit of a heel, must come over the knee and have a string at the top to pull the band tighter around your thigh. Black or Tan are always winners for the Winter season.
The Mermaid Tail blanket – This is an absolute must!! It is the ultimate winter must. If I have to explain why then we can’t be friends. LOL! Apparently Mr Price is currently selling them for R250.00! Bargain!
So that is that for my must-haves. If you guys enjoy posts like this let me know and I can do a monthly beauty and fashion must haves list.
