May Wishlist



New Look Floppy Felt Hat - I actually want a black version of this, but they don't have one on the site. This would be perfect for summer cause I'm so paranoid about the sun, and this would keep my face in the shade. I top up my sunscreen throughout the day, but you can't really put any more on your face without taking all your make-up off, and I worry that the spf on my face (from sunscreen/moisturiser/foundation) disappears after a couple of hours and I don't want a burnt/sundamaged face!
Sigma F25 Tapered Face Brush - I bought a few Sigma brushes about a month ago as I figured if I'm going to buy nice make up I may as well get some decent brushes to apply it with. The brushes I've got are brilliant and have really improved how my make up looks, and this tapered face brush is next on my list. Hopefully it will help me get the hang of contouring.
Mac Fluidline in Blacktrack - Loads of you have suggested this to me since I posted about my MAC makeover and asked for suggestions as to what else to get. Apparently it doesn't budge once it's on, which I need at the moment as the liquid liner I'm currently using doesn't last five minutes in this heat without smudging all over my face. The exchange rate of £ to € is really rubbish for me at the moment though, and makes MAC make up especially about 40% more dear if I buy it here in Austria, so I might have to wait until I go home to get this :(
Bordello Teeze Red Mary Janes - Selina from Flying Saucer was asking me recently about the pair of Bordello heels that I've got (black glitter with ribbon ties, they're so amazing! See them here), and it made me want a new pair. I really like these red patent mary jane ones, I think they'd look great with skinnies and a nice top for nights out, or meals with friends when I want to make an effort but not go full out with a "going out" dress. They're about £55 which is a lot less than you'd pay for something similar in Topshop or Office, and I've just got about £50 more than I thought from my Erasmus (study abroad) grant, so I might set it aside and treat myself to these when I get back to the UK.
H&M yellow dress - I love the colour and shape of this dress, it's so summery, but when I tried it on it was so short! My mum is sending me my black cycling shorts with lace hems though, so I could wear those with it, or just denim shorts underneith to avoid flashing. I can still see it being a bit too short for the Austrians though! Another annoying thing is that I thought it was quite well priced at about €15, but then I saw that it's only £7.99 in the UK! The £ to € exchange rate is only about 1.09 at the moment, so I'd be paying almost double here than I would at home, and I'm not sure if I like the dress enough for that. We shall see. I'm hoping it'll be too short for the Viennese and so there'll be some left at the end of the month, in which case, if I've got any money left, I'll probably get it.

What's on your wishlist at the moment?

  9. When will you be coming back to the UK- soon for the summer? I'd be willing to get the Fluidline for you if you'd like and sent it to you, although if you'll be back soon I suppose it isn't worth the bother! Let me know if you would like me to though.
    I know what you mean about the brushes- you can apply make up so much better with a good brush. I spent an extortionate £18 on a brush from MAC on Saturday, but it's made crease shadowing so much easier for me!
    Also, if you're wanting sunscreen, try watching this Lisa Elridge video- http://www.youtube.com/user/lisaeldridgedotcom#p/search/0/CV4r26d6F0A . I know she mentions at one point these powders you can buy which have sunscreen in, and that you can reapply over your makeup during the day. Maybe worth a try? I'm not sure how keen you are on powder since you have dry skin, but it might be what you're looking for.

  10. Those Bordello shoes are just fantastic. I love the ones you have already, but the red is such a great colour.

  13. If you struggle to find the MAC one, there's a Collection 2000 which I use which is amazing! It stays put all day. Also I've been using that Lee Stafford treatment you suggested in a vlog a while back and I'm not sure if I'm convinced yet... my hair does seem thicker but obviously it'll take a while to notice if it's made any difference to the growth. I am up for trying anything to strengthen my hair though! ♥ Claire @ Jazzpad

  15. ok I'll stop reading your blog now, cause all these comments of yours on viennese being "conservative" or skirts too short for vienna start to annoy me.
    on the one hand it's defenitely not true - don't know where you're hanging out, must be somewhere in the granny area - and on the other hand don't you think it's very insulting to talk (or write in this case) about people of a city the way you do?
    what a pitty - I really liked your blog besides of that.

  16. @Sophie I'm sorry if you've taken offence but a) it's not like I'm constantly moaning about the Viennese. and b) I don't think saying somewhere is quite conservative is insulting.
    I usually live in London and compared to there the way people dress in Vienna is a lot more conservative. True, I've seen girls out at night here with shorter dresses and skirts, but that doesn't seem to be the case in the day time.
    I'm not saying there's anything wrong with that am I?
    I love Vienna and I love the Viennese, so I'm definitely not trying to be insulting.

  17. That dress is so cute! I love floppy hats like that too, but they look a bit silly on me sadly. Maybe because I am so short?
