First of all I'd just like to thank everyone for all the support and encouraging comments on my last post. I was really blown away by all the sweet messages, I'll be sure to keep my blog updated as my trip approaches and while I'm there^^ You guys have made me even more excited to go, and I'm less nervous knowing you're all there if I need advice or anything - I really appreciate the kindness! <3
This post is going to be about things that I would buy if I was rich. Well not really, but it's a little list of things that I plan on saving up my money for. Most of you reading are probably around my age and know how hard financing can be while in school/college/university. I work usually two days a week and I'm at college for four days, so I have enough coming in to warrant spending money on myself every now and then!
I hardly ever buy myself expensive things, usually I'll wait until Christmas or my birthday to ask for it or for money to go towards it - and if it's something I really need my parents are always happy to help me out which I feel really lucky for. I know some people (not most of you guys hehe) don't agree with spending a lot of money on material things, and I used to think the same, but if I earn the money I will spend it on myself if I want. I'm sure most of you feel the same way, to an extent treating yourself with things you really want isn't something to be ashamed of! ^^
Anyway here's a list of some of the fashion, beauty and lifestyle things I would like to use as goals to encourage me to save my money. This way I can start buying things for their quality instead of in quantity because they're cheaper. Let me know what you guys are saving up for, and if you have an opinion on this topic I'd love to hear your stance! Thanks for reading<3
This is the bag I've been swooning over for a while now, and it's nowhere near as pricey as other designer bags so I'm quite serious about buying this for myself! It's the Ted Baker Lilley small crosshatch shopper - I feel like it's my perfect bag, I don't have a classic black handbag and now I'm eighteen I feel like I need one. It comes with a removable pouch which can be used as a clutch or as a pocket inside the bag which I think is so awesome. I really can't wait to get my hands on this!
Some of you might already be ahead of me and have these, but I'm dying to get my hands on one! For those of you who are unfamiliar, these are the Fujifilm Instax Mini 8 Polaroid cameras. They are the cutest things ever and I love the idea of keeping little polaroids in an album. With my six month trip coming up, I'm trying to think of a cute way to document my time so I can remember it forever, and I think one of these babies would be such a good way to do so. And of course I'll get the pink one because if pink is an option I have to have it lol.
These pictures are just to represent this, but I want to start purchasing more Mac lipsticks. I have one, that's it. I really love it but I'm only just getting into more high end makeup - and wearing lipstick regularly as well. I just love the colour and finish variety that Mac offer, and I feel out of the loop not having a collection of them lol. If you have a favourite Mac lipstick shade I'd love to hear it and check it out because I'm trying to decide which ones to get! If you're wondering, the shades picture are Impassioned (which I've ordered!) and Russian Red.
I feel like some of these are a bit generic, but whatever. I own a pair of Jeffrey Campbell Lita look-a-likes from H&M that you might have seen in my 'What's in my Closet' post. I love those boots to death and I find them so comfortable and easy to walk in even though they look a little daunting. But I've always wanted a proper pair, the pink ones especially are so so cute, but I'd probably get more wear out of the brown ones...
As I mentioned, I'm only just getting into high end makeup, but I've already built up such a big list of things I want*-* This eyeshadow palette is from Lancome, it's the My French limited edition palette. The colours are so wearable and look gorgeous, but I won't lie the biggest pull factor here is the beautiful packaging. It's so pretty but it is limited edition so I don't know how long it will be available for. It might be a little dangerous to let me loose near a lancome counter if these are on display!
I feel like this last one doesn't fit in at all with anything I've mentioned previously, but I included it anyway because it might be interesting for some of you! Basically now I'm driving my own car, I want to build up mu CD collection so I can jam out on the way to work or whatever. I have a pretty odd taste in music, I like Kpop as you all know, but outside of that I really enjoy more alt. rock and some hip hop as well - if you guys would like to know what else I like I can write a whole post about it(:
