Six things I need for summer…

Summer wishlist
1 // 2 // 3 // 4 // 5 // 6
The sun is shining, the weatherman has predicted a heatwave so summer is officially here! With a new season comes a new wishlist, and these are the items I need for summer 2015. I’ve (hopefully) got a summer holiday in the pipeline, plus a week in Vegas in October, so I need to start collecting my summer wardrobe so I look the part.
I love the daisy print and I am always a fan of darker florals because they make great transitional pieces. I know I will probably look like an overgrown toddler in this getup, but I love it! It has the perfect festival vibe and would look great layered over a white tee and converse.
Jones Bootmaker have lots of lovely sandals right now including these rose gold wedges. This is pretty much a dream come true! Everyone in the world has been crazy over all things rose gold for the last few years and I need these shoes in my life. The different textures on the wedge and the heel make the sandals more versatile whether you are going for a casual or dressy look.
The polka dot print on these beauties is simply the cutest thing! I usually prefer to go with a black/brown pair of sunnies so they go with everything. This pair would work so well with the dungarees. I’m also loving the ombre tint on the lenses, they look so effortlessly cool.
4. Secret Garden Floral Crown from Dolly Bow Bow, £15
Everyone needs a floral crown in their life for summer and this one is just up my street because the blue flowers are a little bit different from the typically pink based crowns. I might also feel a little bit like Frozen’s Elsa wearing it….
5. Pink Mini Frame Flap Handbag from River Island, £35
You’ve got to have a bit or arm candy suitable for the summer and this candy pink bag is just calling out to me. I tend to go for bags that have the option to be carried on the crook or your arm, but also have a strap for days when you want to be hands free so this is perfect for my summer needs.
I already own four kimonos….but this one is really cute! At only £18 I think it is very reasonable for how lovely the tropical print is. Kimonos are a great way to cover up a little without wearing anything too thick or heavy like a cardigan or jacket. I like that it is quite short too as my other kimonos are longer. Does that justify buying it?!

Christmas wishlist
1 // 2 // 3 // 4 // 5 // 6

This weekend the TV has been awash with a flurry of Christmas adverts ranging from the famous Coca Cola advert to the new John Lewis advert featuring Monty and Mabel (if you haven’t seen it yet get on it now!) so I have been getting very excited for Christmas. This will be our first Christmas in the flat, so we are starting to think about how we are going to transform it into a winter wonderland! So for anyone else who is thinking about buying some lovely items ready to decorate for Christmas here are a few of my favourite Christmas decorations that are on my wishlist.

1. Spiced Orange Large Yankee Candle Jar from Yankee Candle, £19.99 
One of the best things about Christmas is the lovely smells that come with it! We love to burn Yankee Candles and this is one of our favourites. It smells so orangey and is like Christmas in a jar!
2. 3D Resin Stag from Marks and Spencer, £12
I have definitely inherited a stag/deer obsession when it comes to Christmas decorations from my mum who has a few different ones she displays every Christmas. This little gold stag is very cute and would be perfect on a mantelpiece or sideboard if you have a gold colour scheme. 
This candle is absolutely gorgeous, it looks so pretty that I would be reluctant to burn it! The scent of the candle is beautiful and reminds me of mulled wine.
Whilst I am not really a fan of tinsel (sorry!) I adore baubles! I could honestly wander the Christmas displays for hours looking at all the different baubles on offer – so pretty! I like the damask pattern on this bauble and it is so cheap!
5. Christmas Past Berry Wreath from John Lewis, £35
This wreath is absolutely gorgeous! The red is so vibrant and bold I much prefer it to the traditional green holly or fir wreaths. It’s just a same that we aren’t allowed to hang this on our flat door…
6. Linea Gold Textured Bauble from House of Fraser, £5.60
This bauble is just a little bit special! I love the textured effect and I think it would reflect twinkly Christmas lights beautifully. This is probably my favourite item on this wish list, and the best thing is, it is currently in the sale!
