Birthday Wishlist.

Dr. Martens X Liberty Satchel
Clarks Leopard Loafers
Urban Decay All Nighter Spray
Topshop Jacket
Lancome Rouge in Love Lipstick
Tatty Devine Sugar Skull Earrings

Seeing as its my birthday next Wednesday I thought I'd put together a little wish list post. I don't actually have my eyes on too many things at the moment, but these are just a few that I would like. 

I have wanted this satchel ever since Liberty and Dr. Martens launched their collection several months ago. However, seeing as its £145, I haven't gotten around to purchasing it! I do have a slight satchel addiction,  but oh my word, look at it, its divine. I think because the print is so busy I could just sling it on with anything really. Its the one thing on this wishlist that I really want and will definitely be buying for myself.

I also have a leopard print addiction, and since my trusty flats are really starting to give up the ghost I would like to get a replacement. The grey ones I bought are great but I just want the traditional leopard sometimes. I keep seeing this in Clarks windows and lusting after them. Unfortunately they're sold out in my size on the website so I'm just hoping they have them in the store at home!

I love the army jacket that I found for a tenner in a vintage shop but I just wish it was a little more oversized. Haven't seen this in store, I'd have to see what it looked like on- I have a feeling it might make me look like a moron. 

I have wanted some All Nighter Spray for quite a long time- despite having dry skin, I often find my make-up slides off my face a lot in the summer. Especially with glasses on, your make-up smudges underneath and goes everywhere! This is quite expensive for what it is, and has somewhat mixed reviews, so I think I'd try the small travel size first.

My favourite lipstick ever is a Lancome Rouge in Love one, no159B. I keep meaning to do a post on it at some point. It is however the most expensive lipstick I have ever bought, so a back-up would be useful.

And finally, I just quite like these Tatty Devine earrings. Slightly emo but with some humour to them!

I am currently sat at home waiting for an engineer to come out since we have had no water since yesterday morning. I haven't washed my hair since Tuesday, and should be at work right now.... the water company are being pretty useless. My boyfriend's parents have been away as well so it all just happened at a really bad time! Hopefully someone will be out soon- I feel so grubby! Wish me luck!

23 before 23.

You know I was going to do an outfit post today, but honestly, I couldn't be bothered. I've done nothing other than tidy our room and watch True Blood. Grant's car is currently in the garage anyway getting its MOT done so we couldn't have gone out (we live in a somewhat secluded village).

However, I had been intending to do this post after seeing it on Emsipop. I will be turning 22 in 10 days, so thought setting myself some aims for the next year might be a good idea. I don't tend to do New Years Resolutions, just because its never been that big a thing in my family, but these are all fairly do-able and I thought it would be good to have them all written down in one place. I hope you can actually read my rather sloppy handwriting!

Although actually, one of these is already kind of sorted... I will soon be working as a Visual Merchandising Stylist for Marks and Spencer! Its a full time job with much better hours (10-6 everyday- boom!) which means I will actually get to see my boyfriend and have some kind of social life! It also means we will have some more money and so we can now properly start looking for somewhere to live in Oxford. I can't actually start the job yet, since Foods needs someone to replace me first, but it will hopefully be within the next month or so. I am very excited, about the job but also about all the other stuff that it will sort out.

I've also only got this week at work before having a week off for my birthday, which I will be spending at home. Good times all round really! Ooh, and one of the other things on the list might happen whilst I'm at home, but I'm not certain yet.

Now I must off to bed since my boyfriend is getting grumpy for sleeps. I do have a very exciting life.

Hips and Lips.

M&S Limited Collection dress, M&S Autograph shoes, Tatty Devine necklace, rings from a shop in Aberystwyth

I am having rather a lovely weekend. I wore this on Saturday to go and have lunch with Maria in Cheltenham, that consisted of a massive club sandwich and lemon polenta cake. I've been wanting to show you this dress for absolutely ages, but I just kept forgetting to photograph it. It was one of those things that as soon as I saw it, I knew I had to buy it. I paired it with my lollipop Tatty Devine necklace that I don't wear enough and some Pop Art-esque rings to tie in with the print.

I am off to Coventry today to go and see Kathy, for an evening of DVDS and playing with make-up. Don't have much more to tell you really, so I will keep it short and sweet (for once in my life!) and stop typing!
