April Wishlist

Whenever I get a bit stressed out from Uni, I always tend to browse online stores. When I spoke about kicking an addiction to retail therapy I didn't speak about how browsing online shopping is such a stress reliever for me haha. Writing these wishlist posts is a good way to categorise my crazy wishlist and makes me think about what I actually need from them...



1. Marc by Marc Jacobs Petal to the Metal Natasha Bag in Nude - I have been searching for a nice cross body leather bag for a while now. I really wanted a Balenciaga City Bag but to be completely honest with you, it's a bit out of my price range. So I moped around for a bit and debated blowing my tax on one until I saw this bag. Ahh it's so lovely! And at $450, it's a bit more within my price range. I may order this bag when I get paid :)

2. Alexander McQueen Skull Scarf - I never thought too much of these scarves until I saw one in person a couple of weeks ago. They are absolutely gorgeous! Do any of you guys have one of these scarves? Do you think they are worth the money? Please let me know :)

3. Nars Single Eye Shadow in Coconut Grove - I love deep brown eye shadows, I often use them to line my lash line or to deepen my crease. This one was so pigmented and lovely when I swatched it, definitely on my wish list now :)

4. Nars Eye Shadow Duo in Underworld - I feel like this duo would create the perfect navy blue/grey smokey eye, a look I absolutely adore. I love how cool toned this duo is also.

5. Revlon Nearly Naked Foundation - This foundation needs to hurry up and be released in Australia. It's described as a natural looking foundation that lets your natural skin show through, which you all know I love!

6. Maybelline Color Tattoo in Seashore Frosts - I love the look of this gorgeous duochrome. Now if only someone would list it on ebay so that I can get it, because I know they won't sell it in Australia!

7. Too Faced Boudior Eyes Palette - I have a couple of Too Faced Eye Shadows that I have been using again recently and I am in love with the texture and colour payoff. I don't have any of their palettes so this may be a good one for me to try!

8. Nails Inc Special Effects Nail Polishes - How gorgeous are these?! I have never paid any attention to Nails Inc before but these are so awesome! The feather glitter ones look really unique, I do love bar glitter!

So the only thing I really need from this wishlist is a new bag. The reason for that is because my current every day bag is very battered and old, and it only cost me $4 from a thrift shop in the first place. I may also get the Nearly Naked Foundation, but only once I have finished up a current one. What's on your current wishlist?

  2. Coconut Grove looks lovely! I've been looking at getting a skull scarf too (except the one I want is from Cotton On) but Im not sure if I'd wear it. I've started to really want a higher end foundation lately - I'm thinking MAC Studio Sculpt.

  8. I have that exact bag. It has beautiful lining and great compartments. The problem with the nude is that a lot of blue dye rubbed off my jeans onto it. Two years ago one of the typists at work said it was an "embarrassment to womanhood" so my boss bought me a new handbag! Now the Natasha mainly hangs forlornly in my wardrobe. Wasteland on King St in Perth (RIP) used to sell them.

    1. A good way to prevent that from happening is to both wash your new jeans twice before wearing them, and also to use scotch guard on your bag to protect it!

    2. They were old jeans! I think I was too impatient to Scotchguard but I've learnt my lesson and Scotchguard everything now! I had to stop using the bag with jeans.

      Hmm, I might pull it out for an upcoming weekend in Sydney. All those compartments make it great for travel!

  15. Online shopping, real or just window, is totally addictive! I have a MBMJ bag (the Groovee bag in black) and I love it. Maybe you can try Shopbop - they're having 20% off at the moment, hopefully your bag will be there. Funnily enough I also have the Balenciaga City bag which was my first major splurge when I started working during uni - saved up for months for it :p And it's so sad Maybelline never release those cool LE Colour Tattoos in Australia :(
