Wednesday wishlist #23 - Now that I have a new job!

It's been a busy January this year, and even though I haven't actually 'done' much, there's been lots of things for me to do! I've been Spring cleaning my bedroom of clutter including clothes, university gear, old make up etc and it's time for a total overhaul. I've also been job hunting and I'm determined to get myself a full time job so that I can have some structure back in my life, as well as a decent pay check at the end of the month (I've had a couple of interviews for a job I really like)! To motivate myself, I've created a little wishlist of things I'd like to treat myself to when that first Payday does come, including some slightly higher-end and expensive items which I'll finally be able to afford!

Edit: This post was called 'The one for when I get a new job', but I've just had a phonecall to offer me the job I've been interviewing for! So yay, I'm now employed full time and starting Monday, I cant wait! :)

Benefit are launching a new mascara and I'm so excited about it! I'm in love with their They're Real mascara, although sometimes it is just a bit too much for a normal day, and it's really hard to get off in the evening! This mascara is launched in March and is based around hair curlers, so it curls your lashes without the need for eyelash curlers, and is less thick than They're Real. I've heard that you can pick up a free sample size of this in Elle's March issue so I will definitely be doing that! :)

I've been meaning to try this little magical product for a while now. Ever since I treated myself to the Naked 3 Palette I've wanted to buy some sort of eyelid primer to keep it in place all day and I've heard such good things about this particular one. I've managed to find the sample size on sale at Feel Unique for just £8 so I'm going to order that and see how well I get on with it!

Right so this product I'm literally 50/50 with. 50% absolutely love it and want to buy it, but 50% thinking 'Oh hell no, that price is ridiculous!' It's part of the Real Techniques new Bold Metals Collection which is a new luxury range created by Sam & Nic Chapman. I literally swear by the original Real Techniques brushes and they're basically all that I use. I just don't like the idea of spending so much on just one brush. Either way though, I know that this brush would be good, and the design of the new brushes is so gorgeous, so I'll have to think about whether or not I want to take the plunge! :)

Okaaaaay, I know that every man and his dog has this lipstick, but that doesn't stop me from wanting it also! I've been a lover of Mac lipsticks for years, and have built up a nice little collection, but nothing too ridiculous as no two colours are similar. My mum recently bought me back Faux from her trip to New York which is similar to Velvet Teddy, but I'm IN LOVE and have been using it every day. I want to get Velvet Teddy to see the difference between the two and decide on my favourite for future purchases :)

Right I actually need to ask one thing about this, can it be worn as a sports bra?! I absolutely love it either way and would definitely buy it as a bra for a lounge-y day (including the matching panties to go with it!) but I've just realised I'm actually not sure whether it's sportswear or not! When I eventually get a job, I'm hopping straight back over to the gym and signing up again. And obviously I'll need to buy myself some new gym-wear to motivate myself! :)

I have such a weakness for black shoes. In the past few years I've collected many black shoes, boots and sandals but no two are the same! I've never bought any black peep-toe boots before and I really love these. They're just a bit quirky and different to anything I own. You can't see properly in the picture but they have a chunky zip down the side too, and I'm in love!

Do I really need a small copper wire basket? The answer to that is probably no. Do I really want a small copper wire basket? The answer to that is definitely yes! I've been so inspired by Pinterest recently when it comes to home decor, and rooms with simplistic designs and a pop of rose gold or copper just do it for me! This is quite a bargain for what it is, and I'm just loving H&M homeware at the moment, thank goodness there isn't one near me or I'd have no money! You can follow me on Pinterest here if you're a pin-a-holic like me! :)

This would actually be the first ever high end foundation that I've purchased. Apart from a Mac foundation that my mum gave me once as it was too pale for her haha! I've heard nothing but good things about this foundation and I need to give it a go for myself. Have you tried it before, is it worth the hype would you say?

Ever since I went to Amsterdam this January as a Christmas present from my lovely boyfriend Joe, I've wanted to get the Pandora windmill charm to add to my bracelet. I don't have many charms on there as I like to get them when it's a really special occasion, and I feel like this was as we had such a fun time and we'd been planning the trip for over 5 years! Luckily for me, this charm is one of the cheaper ones as it's plain silver :)

Macbook Pro - £899.00 - £1399.00
What a very scary price range! I'm in need of a new laptop and I'm deciding to take the plunge and get a Macbook Pro. Obviously I wouldn't do it until I have a secure job and have been earning for a few months, but I've been thinking about this for so long. As I've mentioned in previous posts, my current laptop just can't handle Final Cut Pro, and I need to be able to edit my YouTube videos! Can anyone suggest which one I should purchase? I'd be using it for editing on Photoshop, Final Cut Pro, streaming and general laptop purposes. I'm very new to all of this!

Well I'm going to need a new watch to keep me on time aren't I?! I've never treated myself to a proper watch before and I'm toying between this gorgeous Marc Jacobs one and the Daniel Wellington one with a rose gold edging! Both are gorgeous with big round faces and simplistic detailing. Rose gold watches are so popular at the moment that there are loads of other options including this lovely one by Emporio Armani, but they're not the cheapest so I'm gonna need to do some proper thinking before I make the decision!

Although this seems like quite a lot of money for what looks like quite a thin unit, this is exactly what I need in my bedroom to just give it that final bit of organisation. I've been really good at sorting out things I need and don't need, but I have so many beauty products hidden in random places, and this would just fit them all together in organised shelves and drawers. It would fit the white theme in my bedroom perfectly and just tidy up the last few messy spaces!

Thanks for reading :)

  8. I love rose gold! That primer is on my wishlist and so is the new benefit mascara!


  9. Love this wish list, so many gorgeous products to stare at. I also can't wait to try out the new Benefit mascara, the wand looks great so far. I agree with you on the RT brushes, I am very tempted to buy at least just one probably the powder one but at the same time think the price is ridiculous for RT when you can't even have a feel of them (like other high end brands for that price) x

  10. Congrats on the new job! I've got that copper basket from H&M bookmarked too, I literally have no use for it but I want it regardless haha. I love Benefit's They're Real Mascara as well but only after it's dried out a little bit - for some reason I hate it when it's brand new! xx


  11. I absolutely love rose gold and that Marc Jacobs watch is so nice! I've been wanting a Michael Kors' ones for ages but the prices too are what scares me! Also, congratulations on the job and good luck! :)
