It really does feel like yesterday I was writing my 2013 wish list, time flies, huh? Above are the items that have been on my radar for some time, some longer than others but all I’m hoping will be mine in 2014. A couple I have my eye on buying while we’re in New York as they’re cheaper or more readily available. I’ve always been a silver jewellery fan but everything that’s caught my eye lately has been gold, Bauble Bar is top of my list to order from and now thankfully ships to the UK. Kate Spade make the most beautiful watches and I had been considering a yellow or rose gold Michael Kors for a while but I think Kate Spade may be the way to go. It’s not a big brand in the UK yet so it’s a little different whereas it feels like EVERYONE is wearing Michael Kors. I was going to treat myself to a new pair of Uggs before our trip but let’s be honest I’ve treated myself to enough and I have big spending plans while we’re there so I decided to save my money but I do still want a new pair of tall black ones. Tory Burch flats have been on my wishlist for about 3 years but I just can’t justify the price for ballet flats.. this is the only item I don’t know if I’ll end up buying.. it’s not the money it’s the money for what they are. Jo Malone is a luxury brand I have always been interested in but last year I sampled their fragrances and found one I loved.. Earl Grey & Cucumber. I know that’s not for everyone but I love it and I think a little bottle of that will be mine soon. My biggest upcoming purchase is hopefully going to be an Alexander Wang Rockie.. it’s the more compact version of the iconic studded Rocco bag, lighter and better for my shorter frame.. it’s been on my NYC shopping list for months and even with taxes it’s considerably cheaper in the states so I’m keeping my fingers crossed that I find a colour combination I love. Hourglass Ambient Lighting powders have been much talked about recently and although I managed to resist the uber expensive palette I really want to try the individual dim light powder.. have any of you got it? Is it worth the money? Lastly since I bought my first Rebecca Minkoff bag (or rather it was gifted to me) just a year ago I have desperately wanted to get my hands on one of her quirky pouches, I bought my friend Caz one for Christmas but again resisted a purchase of my own.. there are so many combinations of text and colours, I’m hoping to find a good selection to browse while we’re in New York.
It’s a high priced wish list but then I never want the affordable items for long before I go out and buy them under the guise of needing to review it for my blog.. hehe. These are all a little crazier and not things I would impulse buy but things I’ve longed and long for.. very materialistic of me but that’s a shopaholic for you!
What’s on your wishlist this year?
