So I’m trying something new for my top picks. Instead of putting them all in one graphic, I thought you’d like to get up close and personal with each item. I actually prefer that when I’m reading other people’s wish list posts so I thought I’d see if you guys liked it too. Let me know what you think!

Mug, £5.99 – New Look

top picks - llama mug

I love this mug so much! Everything about it is so cute. And you can’t argue with that price…though my already stuffed mug cupboard might.

Necklace, $29 – Modcloth

top picks - necklace

How gorgeous is this necklace? It just screams spring to me. Now if only it could tell the weather outside!

Earrings, £15 – Loubijoux @ Etsy 

top picks - earrings

I love the shape of these earrings. They’re so simple but very chic. I could wear them all day, everyday. This Etsy shop also has a load of other beautiful items that you can browse at your own risk. Definitely a payday destination.

Bag, £25 – Accessorize top picks - heart bag

I love a good novelty bag and this one is just quirky enough without going overboard. The heart shape is sweet and I love the stud detail. Perfect for adding a bit of fun to your outfit.

Instax Camera, £85 – Urban Outfitters

top picks - hello kitty camera

So this camera is on my list purely for the kawaii factor. How amazing is this? I’ve never had an Instax camera but I’ve always wanted one and this one is just too cute.

Cushion Cover, £1.90 – ROMWE

top picks - cushion cover

This cushion cover is beautiful. I think it would look great on our grey sofa. Plus you can’t beat that price!

T-shirt, $29 – Modcloth

top picks - t-shirt

I’ve been craving a lot of ramen recently. Does it show?

Bag, £22.87 – Milicancrelat @ Etsy

top picks - bag

So this bag might just remind me of Luna a little bit…

Shirt, £17.99 – H&M

top picks - shirt

It’s Mickey! And stripes! Double win.

Dress, £54 – Sugarhill Boutique

top picks - dress

This print is adorable – Enough said.

Top Picks #53

 

1.Jumper, £45 – Yumi*

I remember Yumi did a very similar jumper a few years ago. I coveted it then and once again I want one. Though I still prefer it without the camera straps.

2. Necklace, £19.50 – Eclectic Eccentricity

Love this so much.

3. Jumper, £38 – Oasis*

Of course it’s another striped jumper but this one has cute little bows on the hips. A fun twist on a classic.

4. Top, £25 – Joanie*

Joanie really need to stop doing this to me. First the dinosaur striped tee I wrote about here and now this.

5. Earrings, £19.42 – Jamber Jewels @ Etsy*

Since a lot of my earring collection is past it’s best – I’m on the hunt for suitable replacements. This pair of mismatched earrings is simple but quirky.

6. Bookends, $69 – Modcloth*

I don’t really have a need for bookends, at least not at the moment but there was just something about these. They remind me of the Golden Gate Bridge and Topher’s and my honeymoon.

7. Necklace, £12.50 – Eclectic Eccentricity

I could stare at this necklace all day; it’s just so pretty. I’ve always had a fascination with the moon so this accessory would definitely fit right into my look.

8. Swimsuit, £60 – Boden*

So first of all, it’s nowhere near swimsuit season. And second of all – I rarely go swimming. Finally third, I’m happy with the swimsuit I have. However you can’t deny how awesome this one is. It looks like something a 1950s bombshell would wear. Plus it comes in loads of patterns and I want them all.

9. T-shirt, £18.67 – Redbubble

I’ve fallen in love with Redbubble over the last couple of months. It’s the perfect place for gifts as you can really niche it to what you’re interested in. Great for my nerdy crew and I. I’ve found loads of Disney, Harry Potter and other stuff but this t-shirt was just so cool. I feel more at home in t-shirts these days so this is ideal.

10. Dress, $89 – Modcloth*

Again, summer is a long way off but this dress looks like the perfect thing to see out those too warm days. Because there were a lot of them last year! I don’t know why everyone is so shocked every time summer eventually arrives – we do get good weather sometimes on our little island.

Top Picks #52

It’s been awhile since I’ve done one of these. Not counting Christmas at least. Since I’ve been saving money for my Disneyland Paris trip next month (so excited!) I haven’t been shopping at all so here’s just a fantasy wishlist of a few things I’ve had my eye on for a little while. Is anyone else’s phone tabs completely full of stuff you can’t afford? Just me?

  1. Jumper, £35 – Joanie

I’m not usually one for slogan jumpers but this one is so cute! I’ve definitely got Japan on the brain. Hopefully next week I’ll be posting a Japan travel wish list of places I want to go.

  1. Harry Potter Necklace, £32 – Yay Rae Flay @Etsy*

I saw this on Instagram and instantly fell in love!

  1. Pen, £4.50 – Paperchase*

Another novelty pen for my imaginary collection.

  1. Striped Top, £25 – Joanie

Dinosaurs always get a big thumbs up from me. And stripes? Double thumbs up!

  1. Skirt, £38 – Joanie

This skirt looks super long but because it’s high waisted it actually hits just below the knees. I think this would make a great staple piece in my wardrobe that would go with everything! Notice how it nicely goes with the jumper and top in this wish list?

  1. Shoes, £16 – Topshop*

Since my black ballet flats died last summer, I’ve been on the hunt for another pair ever since. These look perfect.

  1. Pyjamas, £18 – Sainsburys

I haven’t had any new long pjs in a long time so these would be great. Is it just me who finds it super hard to find these type of pjs?

  1. Up Necklace, £6.99 – EMP

I love the up house so this necklace is the sweetest.

  1. Pygmy Puff Slippers, $26.95 – Universal Orlando Resort Merchandise Store

So these would be pretty difficult to get but I fell in love with these the moment I saw them in WWOHP back in 2015. So cute!

  1. Dress, £75 – Cath Kidston

What kind of cat lady would I be if I  didn’t have something featuring cats on my wish list? I love both the print and the shape of this dress.

Christmas Gift Guide for Her 2017

So it’s time for the first of my festive gift guides, the Christmas gift guide for her. I’m also going to be doing one for him and also one that is purely indie shops.

Perfect for your tea loving friend who seriously needs to make sure she takes time for herself once in awhile.

 

The Writer

4. One Line a Day Journal, £11.99 – ASOS*

I’ve written about mine in the past and I recommend them so much. It’s a great gift and it’s ideal for people who have a terrible memory. I love flipping through mine and seeing what I was doing on that day each year. It’s great to celebrate the everyday – the little things.

 

The Baker

Not only is this apron cute, but it’s from H&M’s conscious brand too so you know it’s been sourced ethically.

The Dino Queen

9. Socks, £3.50 – Accessorize*

Let’s face it, getting socks as a gift when you were a kid was the worst! But you have to admit that as an adult, they’re a pretty welcome addition to your stocking. These dinosaur print ones are awesome!

 

The Planner

10. Bullet Journal, £22.90 – Amazon*

Has your friend been dithering about starting a bullet journal for months? Give her a little push and just get her one! They’re so easy to use and you can completely work it to your specifications.
