Birthday Wishlist

It's my 21st Birthday soon, so I've recently been drawing up a list of things I'd really like to mark the occasion. How self-indulgent of me ;)

Panasonic Lumix FZ35
I desperately need a new camera, and this is perfect for me. Nice and chunky and a kind of 'bridging' camera, which means it's kind of hanging inbetween a DSLR and your average digital compact. Hopefully will get me taking some cool snaps.

MAC - Creme d'Nude
I really need another one of these. I completely used mine up ages ago and can't really justify spending £12 on a lipstick at the minute. Sad times. I rely on my nudes ;)

Beyonce - Heat
I tested this the other day in Boots and fell in love. I really need a new perfume and this is lovely. It's really hard to describe perfume but I'd describe it as a floral and vanilla-y kind of scent.

Wicker Bike Basket
I'd love a basket for my bike so I can put some shopping in it or something. I really just like the idea of having a basket on my bike filled with flowers riding through a meadow on a summer's evening, but I doubt that will happen anytime soon. I'll just have to cope with navigating the streets of Manchester for a while yet.

Benefit - Erase Paste
I need this in my life. Sometimes I like to just use a bit of concealer and bronzer on my face, rather than using foundation, just to cover up some of my blemishes. I've yet to find a really good concealer though, and I've heard that this is the holy grail of concealers.

Polaroid 600 film
I ran out ages ago and it's so expensive. I need more time with my Polaroid, but it's a catch 22 situation as the film is so much. Fail.

Gizzi Erskine's Kitchen Magic
Gizzi's off Cook Yourself Thin, but it's not something I really watch. Cookery programmes tend to make me hungry, apart from Come Dine with Me, but I love cooking and trying new things. I haven't done much since I've been home for summer, but come September I'll be cooking up a storm!

I'd also quite like a nice little book to keep all of my recipes in as well. Especially the ones I tear out of magazines and lose all the time...

I'm sure I'll think of more things I want as my birthday looms nearer.


  1. It's my bday soon too and you've given me some good ideas! I love gizzi, shes gorgeous and has lovely style - oh and the cooking is always good too! I want a new camera too and definitely some mac make up!
    ive got a wicker bike basket and i want a kitten to put in it! x

  2. That nude lipstick is such a beautiful colour! I never wear lipsticks but that one is seriously making me want to experiment.

    I'm running competitions on my blog all week long, so do come and enter!

  3. I hear you on the Polaroid 600 film! I also ran out quite a while ago and still haven't gotten any. I can't believe how expensive it's gotten!

  4. Love Beyonce Heat! I work at The Perfume shop and you get a free 200ml body lotion (which glitters gold!) with a 50ml I want to splash out and take advantage of my discount ;) x

  5. Ebay have a lot of Polaroid film but still seems to go for not so cheap prices, rather annoying!

  6. the lipstick looks really good! i love nudes and i'm gonna definitely try this one out! :) xo

  7. Oh i might have to try that concealer. Thanks for pointing it out! x


Let me know what you think!
