This month the sun has been making an appearance and we’ve finally been able to holler, ITS SPRING! For most it’s payday this week (hallelujah). This is something I’ve been considering as a series, a monthly payday wishlist! Let me know in the comments if this is something you’d be interested in!
From fashion, beauty, fitness and kitchen appliances, anything I’ve seen this month that takes my fancy this month will be shown here!
Payday Wishlist – Fashion
As the sun has been making a few appearances, it’s time for pastels, sunglasses and to get my pasty pins out!
1 Navy is a great way of adding colour if you, like me, wear a lot of black. This gorgeous jumpsuit is perfect for a night out with the girls, wedding guest outfit or something smart for an interview. Warehouse Culotte Jumpsuit
2 I’ve been after some lace up block heels for a while, this lovely tan pair from Asos will see you right through the summer, totally a payday wishlist treat! Truffle Lace Up Heels
3 I spotted this in Hannah Gale’s New Look Haul and instantly fell in love, I’m a massive lover of stripes, something I’d ideally like to wear whilst walking around Santorini! New Look White Stripe Bardot Dress
4 Trainers are my go-to footwear any time of year, if you’re like me and wear a lot of monochrome, add a pop of colour with these super comfy trainers (I have them in blue already) Plum Air Max Thea
5 RayBan have bought out pretty new colours to their mirrored Avivators range. Although I need prescription, which means I couldn’t get the gorgeous orange mirror unless I got contact lenses *shivers*, I am seriously in love with these gorgeous Gold and Orange Raybans
6 Black is my go-to for a night out! This even comes in white too if you’ve got a bit more colour to you, unlike me! This could be dressed down with fresh trainers and a denim jacket, or dress it up with some lace up heels and silver jewellery, something versatile that won’t break the bank! New Look Mesh Bodycon
7 Monochrome and pastels are my thing! This top is High Street, but I do get serious Whistles and COS vibes from this New Look Colour Black T-Shirt
Payday Wishlist – Beauty
1 Myself and Yasmin went to the Glamour Beauty Festival (blog post coming soon) and got colour-matched with Laura Mercier. Since my all time favourite BB cream Ginvera is like gold dust lately and Benefit got rid of You Rebel and replaced it with the much disliked Big Easy, I was in desperate need of finding a nice every day base! I was matched with Laura Mercier Tinted Moisturiser – Cameo.
2 This time of year I love orange lips and coral blush, I’ve never used anything Nars before – gasp, at the Glamour Beauty Festival the makeup artist did a contour and blush on me and I chose the colour Frenzy – Nars.
3 These are currently on offer, so grab a pair while you can! They’re sleek and stylish and look so futuristic, their new design makes it even easier to create sleek waves, curls and ultra straight hair with the GHD White Platinum Styler.
4 Matte lips are all over Instagram, especially of the nude variety! I love a bright lip, and with brands like Kylie Lip Kit and ColorPop not being as easily accessible in the UK yet NYX is a great brand to head for, at only £6.50 I’m all for the NYX Liquid Suede in Orange County.
5 This weekend I was recommended to use the Sally Hansen Air Brush Legs, it is literally makeup for your body! Amazing for a pasty gal like me, gave me a nice glow for my night out, then I discovered benefit have bought out a body bronzer, I’m very much looking forward to trying this! Benefit Hoola Body Bronzer.
6 High shine polish is a must these days, I do have my own UV Gel Polish Kit, but buying the colours can become quite costly. I’ve got hundreds and I mean HUNDREDS of different nail polishes, so this Polish to Gel kit looks amazing! The shine and chip resistance of a Gel, but from your normal polish, what more could a nail polish addict want?! Sensationail Polish to Gel Kit.
Payday Wishlist – Lifestyle
1 I recently saw in a lot of vlogs, youtubers being sent vinyls and vinyl players with the Gwen Stefani for Uban Decay palette, more popular albums are being released in vinyl, like Jack Garratt – Phase, cannot stop listening to him, I found some on Groupon that would look perfect in any home, great idea for a gift and certainly taking a high place on my payday wishlist! Crosley Vinyl Player.
2 After getting my love DSLR camera for christmas all I need now to complete my video set up is a high quality microphone that isn’t rediculously expensive! I’ve had this on my Amazon Wishlist for quite a while. If you’re looking to start youtube and have a DSLR I would highly recommend the Rode Microphone.
3 In my recent Vlog some of you may have heard me moaning about how my old faithful Nikon 1 J1 has broken, this is something I wouldn’t want every payday due to high cost, however, this has the 180 flip screen like the well known G7X, but is £400 cheaper! Panasonic Lumix DMC Camera.
4 With my recent love of circuit training, weight lifting and general gym madness, I really want to start using resistance bands. They are amazing for squats and can even be used to help with pullups, although I do still require someone to help me get my feet in it in the first place! If you love working out to check out these Gym Resistance Bands.
5 I’m no Mary Berry, but I do love cooking and sometimes I bake! I recently made Carly Rowena’s Banana Bread and now I’m obsessed, I’ve seen the amazing KitchenAid mixers, but they are pretty pricey, I’ve been looking at a red metallic one to go with the other items we have in the kitchen and found the Morphy Richards Stand Mixer.
6 Nothing beats that fresh sheet feeling! Mine and Jacks room is VERY minimal at the moment, a great way of adding a pop of colour to any room is with coloured soft furnishing. We currently have pug bed sheets, but these once from next are much more grown up! Duck Egg Bedding -Next.
7 Robots are very much becoming a reality, this is more of a lifetime wish list item, it is expensive, but who wouldn’t love a vacuum cleaner that uses an app and you can set it to vacuum while you’re at work and come home to a gleaming home! Botvac Connected Robot Vacuum Cleaner.
8 The final item on my payday wishlist is more workout gear! I put this on lifestyle and not fashion because I wouldn’t particularly wear these day to day. H&M make seriously affordable and good quality workout clothes! If you’re looking to get some more bits for your fitness collection I’d highly recommend H&M running tights.
