February Wishlist

1. Evissa dress


This dress is really floating my boat at the moment. I love the way it has cut outs but they’re not actually too revealing. It has quite a sports luxe, Alexander Wang vibe – simple but with enough detail to keep it interesting.

I spotted this featured as part of an article where they had the reporter copy Kim Kardashian’s outfits for a week, to see if they were practical in every day life. And while some (latex bustier anyone?) didn’t work, she really rated this dress for comfort and elegance.

Kim can wear some really bizarre things, but there are also elements of her style I love, like the leather pencil skirts and crop tops. I’d be tempted to style this down with leggings and pointed flats and wear it as more of a tunic.

2. Real Techniques Rose Gold Contour Brush


Every single blogger in the world wants this, because lets face it, its beautiful. It did feel a little weird to me when a brand that had always provided incredible quality for a reasonable price started introducing a premium line, but honestly?

I really prefer RT brushes to Mac ones, so even if this range is more in that price bracket I think its worth it. I might have to give in on payday. My cheekbones demand this!


3. Richard Ward Keratin Rehab Ultra-Moisturising Treatment


My hair has put up with a lot over the years and the ends are not in great condition due to being ombre-d in the past and then dyed over, and the fact that I use heat stylers every day. So a decent deep conditioning mask is a must for me.

I like the idea of this line because it contains keratin, which is a wonder ingredient for rebuilding damaged tresses. Of course Richard Ward is Kate Middleton’s hairdresser, so he has the most pampered tresses in the land in his hands – he must know what’s good!

4. Nip+ Fab Dragon’s Blood Fix Plumping Serum


I’m always up for trying some new skincare, and this serum caught my eye last time I was in Boots. I really love Nip + Fab products and I couldn’t do without their exfoliating pads.

All the products are developed by Maria Hatzistefanis, who I admire hugely. She founded luxury brand Rodial, and you’ll often find that Nip +Fab products come out with similar formulations to their more pricey cousins.

This serum contains super-moisturiser hyaluronic acid, velvey flower extract, dragon’s blood, a botanical extract that forms a protective film on skin to protect against environmental damage and a complex to absorb excess oil.

5. Loco Dark Gold Pointed Flats


Really loving flat or chunky heeled shoes at the moment – I am so over discomfort when I’m trying to walk! So I’ve been looking for interesting flats that will do for evening as well as day.

I love the statement colour and mirror finish of these, they’d light up any outfit but would look especially good with dark skinny jeans or a sequinned mini. And best of all? No crippling foot pain!

6. White oversized shirt dress


Current obsession: large oversized white shirt dresses, and this is the best of the bunch. The price is a little high for me, so I’m definitely on the hunt for a decent high street alternative -hoping Toppers or H&M will deliver something similar soon! T

his would be great for now with leggings and ankle boots or amazing for summer on its own with a chunky belt. Divine.


7. Gold ampersand sign

Near And Dear via Etsy

This is something I really want for my house! I’m enjoying buying little bits and pieces now that we’re decorating, and I love the idea of hanging this over the bed.

Its really quirky and the metallic finish would pop against my soft grey walls.


  1. The black dress and the serum look amazing! Loved it ;) xx

    1. Thanks lovely! My wishlist is literally never ending! ;) xx

  2. I don't own that RT's contour brush but for what I've seen in the shops and in reviews online it's a bit too thick and dense. Have you seen the similar version from Zoeva? I have it and LOVE IT! I have a feeling it would be a much better option, worth looking into. :) x

  3. Oooh, that's a great tip Renata, I'll check those out. I've never looked at the Zoeva brushes for some reason, although I've heard great reviews. Sonia Kashuk also does a set called 'Make A Face' that has some amazing flat topped sculpting brushes but its so hard to get hold of over here. We need Target to ship to the UK! xx
