Wish List | EG

I feel like I haven’t done a wish list in an extremely long time. Considering the amount of time I spend gazing into shop windows or uhm-img and aah-ing over clothes that I can’t afford, a wish list is kind of expected. Today I’ve gathered a few things that I like at the moment ( and might even own hopefully! ) 

              
The first thing is this gorgeous playsuit from Missguided. After seeing this on Sarocha B’s channel on YouTube ( which I would definitely recommend because her blog and YouTube are my favourite! ) I fell in love with it! It’s really pretty and would match a lot of things, since it is black and white. I’ve recently bought some adidas superstars which would look really nice with it. For £25 it is a bit pricey but is definately worth it as it is very neutral.

When I went to town the other, I stumbled across this suede bomber jacket from New Look I fell in love. It is quite a light beige, which means it will go with a lot of outfits. It is also a really soft suedette, as real suede would not be £34.99. Although it’s not practical, it is really chic.

Ariana Grande has recently released her Viva Glam collection. There is a ‘good’ and ‘bad’ product. The ‘good’ product is a light pink lipgloss, supposedly showing off your angelic side and the ‘bad’ product is this deep plum colour, made to represent the darker side of yourself. I think this is a really clever idea and represents arianas style chance too. I personally like the lipstick, as I don’t like lipgloss or really pink colours. I’ve never owned a Mac product, but I would love to.

The next thing is this jumper, which I also saw when I saw the jacket. It is a high neck oat coloured jumper. The petite version is down to £14.39 in the sale. It’s so pretty and would look really nice with some jeans and trainers or boots.i think this is my most likely purchase out of my list.

These nails were on Sierra Furtados Instagram. I love Sierras style, and she is one of my favourite youtubers. I’ve never had acrylics before and have been looking for inspiration and these are by far my favourites. As I am going on holiday in a few weeks, I might get acrylics for the first time! 

Have any of you guys had acrylics? What’s on your wish list?

Have a lovely day!

Christmas Wish List | EG

Christmas is only four days away!!! I’m a little bit excited if you can tell. I pre put together my Christmas wish list, even though I know I won’t be getting them as I’ve already got my present. These are a few things that I really like and think are really pretty.

                     
leaf print overlay dress- topshop

iPhone 6 silver – Apple

Adidas superstar metallic – asos

Fujifilm instax mini 8 film – Amazon

Parlour grey and silver midi watch – Olivia burton

Adidas essentials t shirt – urban outfitters

I think this dress is so gorgeous and would be really lovely with some skater shoes or boots and an oversized coat or a black denim jacket. It could be dressed up or down and I think that’s really nice.

Obviously a new phone is probably on everyone’s wishlist and with the release of the 6 and 6s Apple will obviously be getting a lot of orders. I like the iPhone 6 as its more budget friendly and being stuck on the iPhone 4s is not fun really.

These trainers were featured in my last yes please post. I just can’t get enough of them! I think they’re so pretty and add a subtle quirky touch to an outfit.

I have the pink fujifilm instax mini 8. I got it 2 years ago for Christmas but I haven’t had any film since last New Year’s Eve as I used it all and I haven’t got round to buying any,ore film so this is more of a need than a want.

This watch is so beautiful. I love grey and silver and the flowers on the face are so gorgeous. The midi dial is a nice size to because I have tiny wrists and a huge watch face would make them look even smaller!

Urban outfitters has the nicest clothes. If I always had money I would buy all of my clothes in there! This adidas top is really ladiback and neautral and would match with everything. 

What’s on your Christmas Wishlist?

Have a lovely day!

what’s in my bag? | EG♡

So today I thought that I’d share with you one of my favourite posts to read. I don’t know whether it’s because I’m nosy or not but I really enjoy these types of posts! I also like seeing what people find useful to have with them. I don’t like to carry loads in my bag as it tends to get heavy quickly so these items are what are usually in my bag from day to day.

  

My bag is a taupe kind of colour from new look. I got it for £22.99 and it is a shoulder bag, great for carrying all of my stuff! I love the colour of it because it tends to match anything I wear.

So, what’s in my bag?

I carry my iPad with me mostly for entertainment. I like to check out blogs whilst on the go or read a book. The one I’m reading on it at the moment is ‘ hurry up and wait ‘ which was free on the book store last week as it was book of the week. So far it’s very good! I also like to have my iPad with me to take pictures, mostly for my blog or because they’re just good photo opportunities!

The second thing I have is my iPhone. I’m not too bothered about carrying this around at all times, but when I know I need to reach for someone it’s nice to have it there. The case it has was £1 from primark and I love it because it’s all sparkly and whatnot. I also like to listen to my music on it. At the moment I love the weeknd, Vance Joy, Ariana Grande and Cara delevingnes cover with Will Heard.

The third things are my (very) small collection of beauty items. These consist of ‘Soap and Glory Hand Maid’ hand sanitiser ( you never know when you’ll need this ) Baby lips lip balm in ‘ pink punch ‘ and my one direction our moment perfume rollerball. I like to have this with me to top up if my perfume is fading away. Of course I have tissues. Someone always needs one, I like to be the one who has them because my friends are never prepared for it!

The next things I carry round are my fujifilm instax mini 8 and my sunglasses. I like to have my camera with me in case there’s a nice photo opportunity, you never know when it might be and I like to catch great memories with this camera as the photos seem more special. I picked these sunglasses up in Spain for €2! I thought they were a bargain! I’ve had them for nearly a year now and they still do their job perfectly!

The last thing is chocolate! I always like to have something sweet in my bag in case we go on a long journey or someone’s  hungry. Galaxy is my current favourite and I got four bars with my Easter egg so I’m making the most of them! I also like to carry water with me because it’s literally all I drink apart from tea or the rare occasion I have some lemonade.

Hope you enjoyed this post and have a great day!

bourton-on the-water | EG♡

Today it was super sunny, so we went out for the day down by the river! It was great, I think the temperature reached 30•c! 

When we got there we put our picnic blanket out and had some sandwiches, fruit and crisps. Then we sunbathed and sat by the river. Later on we went to the little ice cream van. It was so cute, it even had bunting on it! I had chocolate ice cream but I ate it too quick to take a picture! The river was lovely and there were little ducklings paddling around too!

  

A little bit later we went to ‘ bakery on the water ‘. It was a rustic/shabby chic bakery next to the top of the river. We had a cream tea and it was gorgeous! Each little jam pot had a message on the lid. We also popped into a few shops- that are all local and one off – and got two little policemen salt and pepper shakers, they’re so cute! I had such a great day, hope fully I can go again soon!

Hope you’ve enjoyed this post, and your day!

instax mini 8 | EG♡

2 years ago, I was bought a pink fujifilm instax mini 8 for christmas. I am absolutely in love with it. It’s honestly the perfect modern Polaroid. 

  

The main mistake I made when I first got it, was not changing te setting for the photo. A light shows you which setting you should use to get the best photo. A few of mine turned out plain white because I didn’t put the right setting on.

My favourite thing about this camera is that it’s compact. The lens shuts in so the front is flat. The photos are credit card size and are really cute. I obviously have the pastel pink because it’s sooo cute. I also have a little bag to carry it in and a mini photo album too.

This camera is great for making memories in an easy and fun way! I definately recommend it for anyone who isn’t super technical. These are a great way to own a Polaroid camera.

Have a lovely day!
