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 #51

  1. Bag, £65 – Accessorize*

More stars I know! But look how pretty and it’s leather so you know it’ll last.

  1. Jumper, £40 – Oasis*

How amazing is this collar? I love it so much. I’ve seen slightly similar ones in the past but it’s usually something like cats, never seen it done with zebras. I can easily see this as something you could dress up or down and would go with skirts, trousers and jeans. Get in my wardrobe.

  1. T-shirt, £12 – Dorothy Perkins*

I used to say this phrase sarcastically when people asked me how life was but these days (especially not working in an office), I actually am. Sure things aren’t perfect but they sure as hell are a whole lot better.

  1. Dress, £24.50 – Joy

I spy a pretty dress! This kind of reminds me of a striped dress I used to have a few years ago. Best thing is that this is on sale!

  1. Skirt, £35 – Joanie

I really seem to be drawn to this style of skirt recently. I really like how summery this one is. And it has pockets – bonus!

  1. Print, £11.59 – We Are Extinct @ Etsy

This print is so true! My furbabies definitely keep things chipper around this house. How can I be sad with those two looking at me? Topher definitely agrees.

  1. Trainers, £34.99 – ASOS*

I suddenly find myself drawn to seeking out a pair of comfy but cute lace up trainers. I have my high top converse which I love but I just want something to act as an in between those and my ballet pumps. Still dithering over what colour but these ASOS ones are nice. Plus I do love a bit of glitter.

  1. Bedding, £27.99 – New Look

I love love love this bedding set! Unfortunately Topher does not. So it can never be mine *sobs. Though in actual fact it can never be mine because they only do it in a double.

  1. Pin, £14.08 – Bottle of Clouds @ Etsy

This pin just makes me smile. Love it. Describes both my cats! Sadly it only ships within the USA – boo.

  1. Blouse, $49.99 – Modcloth*

A blouse with dinosaurs on and a bow at the collar – what more could I ask for?

Top Picks #50

  1. Hen Party Sash, £15 – Oh Squirrel @ Etsy

With my hen party on the horizon, I’ve been thinking about what I’m going to wear. I’m not really one for the L-plates, fluffy deely boppers and various penis related paraphernalia so this sash fits the bill. Plus it features my signature polka dots. Perfect!

2. Necklace, £20 – Layla Amber @ Etsy

I love everything in this etsy shop but this necklace especially wins my heart. It’s so bright and cheerful and just makes me smile. It would look great with any bright coloured outfit and even bring some colour to my all black looks I’ve been sporting lately.

3. Dress, £45 – Joy

Officially in love with this Valley of the Dolls dress. Even though it’s out of stock of my size (noooo!) The length looks perfect, it’s got an elasticated waist and I’m always up for a cactus print. This looks like the perfect dress to wear on my honeymoon. I really seem to be into navy at the moment…

4. Glass, £15 – Urban Outfitters*

This glass is all kinds of amazing. What is it with me and novelty stuff? Don’t know, don’t care – just get me to Urban Outfitters.

5. Earrings, £14 – Mica Peet @ Etsy

How pretty are these earrings? I love them. More stars of course and I love the galaxy style circles underneath. So cute.

6. Dress, $88 – Unique Vintage

This dress is so pretty! It reminds me of holidays and sunshine. Looks like the skirt would be awesome to twirl in too.

7. Book, £20 – Amazon*

I’m a big fan of Geraldine’s blog so I can’t wait to read this. She always has me in stitches so I have high hopes for this book.

8. Maxi dress, £85 – ASOS*

So I may have already ordered this! I needed something to wear for my cousin’s wedding that’s the week before mine. How perfect is this dress? I love the sparklies! Plus I can wear flats. I can’t wait to see it in person.

9. Phone case, £15 – Oliver Bonas*

Seriously considering getting this phone case. My current one though lovely is starting to die. I love the sketchy style of this one.

10. Shoes, $41.99 – Modcloth*

Shoes that have watermelons on them! Watermelons and shoes! These are hilarious and I love them. Not badly priced either.

Top Picks #44

1.Dress, £50 – Dorothy Perkins*

Doesn’t this dress just scream spring? It would be perfect for one of the weddings I’m going to.

2. Earrings, £5 – ASOS*

These earrings are too cute! I can’t wait to have pierced ears again.

3. Shoes, £25 – ASOS*

These shoes definitely appeal to my cat lady side! Though I’d probably prefer them as a pump with no strap around the ankle.

4. Dress, £58 – Sugarhill Boutique

This dress is perfect! Ideal for summer and I love the map print. Plus the length is great too.

5. Jumpsuit, £28.80 – Joanie

I’m not usually one for jumpsuits but I am in love with this one. More stars I’m afraid. It looks super comfy. And it’s on sale too!

6. Backpack, £29 – Accessorize

This backpack is even better than the one I found for my last top picks. Sold. So looking forward to my honeymoon!

7. Beauty and the Beast Soundtrack, £9.99 – Amazon*

It’s not even been out a week yet and I’ve already seen Beauty and the Beast twice. Topher and I have been singing the songs constantly and are definitely going to be getting the soundtrack to play in the car.

8. Pillow, £75 – Urban Outfitters*

I need one of these pillows in my life! Perfect for working in bed. My current situation of just using my regular pillows ends up hurting my back. This looks so comfy!

9. Notebook, £10 – Paperchase

My current bullet journal is filling up fast and with a £5 treat voucher due from Paperchase, I’m on the hunt for a new one. This one is really pretty and quite similar to my current journal.

10. Top, $54.99 – Modcloth*

This top is so cute. I love the ladybirds on the collar. It looks really versatile – I could wear it with both skinny jeans and tucked into skirts.
