Wishlist up today, I still have no money due to the lack of employment I am in. In all honesty, I've only applied for one job so I probably need to get more organised, call up a few places, hand my CV in, and all that including effort. Which I currently have none of. Seen quite a few things I want to buy with the invisible pounds I have in my Primark purse.

This knitted cardigan I saw on Topshop is gorgeous and is described as an oatmeal colour. Doesn't look too thick making it perfect for transitioning into Spring. I think it would look nice over a cute day dress with wedges. It's quite floaty aswell which is what drew me to it in the first place. However retailing at £40 I would never pay this much for a simple cardigan. Let me know if you've seen a lookalike somewhere else!

The gorgeous light pink top has a pretty pearl collar with it and would look lovely with the topshop cardigan and the wet-look leather leggings from Topshop. Been wanting a pair of these leggings for a while ever since I started seeing them come about and at £18.00 I think they're fairly cheap for topshop! A purchase definitely worth considering.

Next on my wishlist is this playsuit with a leopard print collar and cut outs. I think it's wearable for both day and night, and again the oatmeal cardigan above would go with it too. I don't own many playsuits so this would be a welcomed addition to my wardrobe! I'm not sure if the belt comes with it because I love that too, if not I definitely need to find a similar one because it cinches in the waist nicely.

The watch is from Urban Outfitters, I actually don't own a watch. With my iPhone on hand, I generally tend to just look for the time on that, but I think watches add a bit of a twist on a outfit. I love this classic black retro one, gorgeous! When I was browsing the Home section of Urban Outfitters, I came across this quirky camera lens mug which I think is so cool! It comes with a lid to carry when you're out and about, but I doubt I would actually go outside with this, far too many weird looks would come with it!

Lastly but definitely no means least, comes this Mulberry bag in all its glory. Named the Cookie Small Bayswater Satchel, it's gorgeous and so cute. Made in an 'oak soft matte leather' material, and the prettiest cookie-cutter trim around it, it's perfect to carry around for the new season and also has a longer strap that comes with it too. Obviously, the bag comes with a large price tag at £850 but putting that heart-breaking detail aside, it is a gorgeous bag. Agreed.

Bit of a long post considering it's only a wishlist, apologies for that! Hope you've all had a good week, and ate endless amounts of pancakes on Tuesday. I don't really have an excuse to eat pancakes because my grandma makes the best ones ever when I go to see her, but I tried out my pancake skillz and actually made some pretty decent ones.

Have a lovely weekend!

  6. Hi Laura! Discovered your lovely blog when you followed me on Twitter.... and it's safe to say, I'm completely adoring your blog posts and your blog layout! :) Such wonderful picks for your wishlist! I am obsessed with knitted cardigans as well, the Topshop one is gorgeous! (: Sadly, I've only been to the US Topshop in NYC which was super expensive so I did not purchase anything. Maybe you could find a similiar one in H&M? Hehe, I use my iPhone as a "watch" too, but I secretly want one just for accessorizing! =) The Urban Outfitters one is great! I found a really gorgeous wrap-around watch that looks just like a wrap bracelet but with a watch on it! And the Mulberry bag... is of course, so dreamy. *sigh*

    I'm looking for a job as well but I absolutely have no experience in retail whatsoever and I've never had a job at all :o I don't even know where I want to work, but I'm hoping at one of my favorite stores but the girls who work there seem very rude and snobby. Good-luck to you finding a job Laura! (:

    Of course, I had to follow you! Very looking forward to seeing your next post! =) Thanks for following me on Twitter and GFC! <3
