My Birthday Wishlist

nedelja, januar 11, 2015


My birthday is at the end of the month and the only fairly exciting thing in these cold, after-holidays boring days of January is picking up what to splurge on as a treat.  

1. JOHN FRIEDA Full Repair Touch-Up Flyaway Tamer
You may remember that I bought this as a gift for someone in December. Well, I had the chance to try it on her hair and it's bloody amazing. With one swipe all the frizz was completely gone, it looked even better than using a straightener. My precise words after the first try where: "Holly mother of God, I need this!". And the hair looked so shiny, it just looked like someone photoshopped it, except for a tiny strand where too much of the product was applied (note: wipe the wand before application). I've been dreaming about this ever since. The catch is that I can only find it on Boots International and that 10 € shipping fee is painful if you don't buy several items. Perhaps I should try some sort of a clear mascara available here first?

2. L'OREAL True Match Foundation 
N1
So many people included this in their 2014 favourites and I almost bought it several times last year, but changed my mind at the last second. With the help of one my readers I established that I probably need shade N1, which is one of the shades not sold in Slovene drugstores (a round of applause for the importers *sarcasm off*), so I've got no other choice than to order online (with a nice discount code, I'll get it cheaper than here anyway).

3. IT'S A 10 Miracle Leave-In Product
As a hair care junkie and I can't avoid the hype surrounding this. Just as Healthy Sexy Hair Tri-Wheat Leave-in Conditioner this is a highly praised product especially on MUA and since HSH leave-in is the bomb.com, I have high hopes this is good as well.  It promises to repair dry damaged hair, add shine, smooth & control frizz, seal & protect hair colour, to detangle, stop hair breakage and protect against heat damage. Basically it contains keratin and proteins, while it's a nourishing leave-in conditioner and a thermal protector. I'm heading to order this right now (on eBay from the USA), so it will hopefully arrive on my door step before/on my birthday.

4. NARS Sheer Glow Foundation 
Siberia
I know, I know, I included this in a couple wishlists already, but it's hard to part from so much money. I did promise myself last year after I bought Radiant Creamy concealer that next year I'll get this for my birthday. The thing is that the damn shipping costs are so high on NARS EU website (20 €!?) if I don't order over 50 € and the foundation plus the pump costs below that mark. The reason why I want to order from there is that it's the only place which has the pump for a reasonable price, otherwise I'd just order the foundation from HqHair. First world problem here. One of my readers Tamara sent me a sample of Siberia and it's a nice match for me plus it looks a lot nicer on the skin than my other paler foundation Rimmel's Lasting Finish Nude, which tends to settles in my pores and just looks a bit off. Though I admit, Sheer Glow does get a bit patchy at the end of day (that's my only complaint), I love the coverage and the finish, plus I got a lot of compliments wearing it (especially regarding the colour match).

5. HOURGLASS Ambient Lighting Powder 
Diffused Light
I so wish I could try one of these or their blushes (the trio palette is gorgeous), but I think that for now this will truly just remain merely a wish. I could order it from Urban Retreat Boutique, but together with shipping (10 €) it would put a serious dent in my purse, which I find hard to justify. It's a finishing powder/highlighter hybrid, so similar to Guerlain Meteorites, but in pressed form. I have Bourjois Java Poudre de Riz powder, which I think is similar and I adore it, however, I always wonder if the grass is greener on the high-end side.  


6. BALEA Bodybutter Nuss
Sara (Passing Fancy) caused the lemming for this one with her wonderful Nuts about Nuts & Cocoa post. This body butter looks like a nice cheap thrill and I always love such products. Sara says it smells like Monte (hazelnut-chocolate-milky dessert), which in my books can't be bad at all. Though, I should try to use up one of my body butters before buying this. 

7. Katy Perry Royal Revolution
I always love it when the bottles look like a decoration in the room and this one is beautiful. I included this fragrance on one of my previous wishlists, but I think it's time I finally take the plunge, I have, after all, used up several of my fragrances and I keep spraying this in the shop. It's very different from the vanilla sweet Killer Queen, which didn't completely appeal to me, rather Royal Revolution is not as strong and vanillary, but more toned down, yet still sweet. Notes.

8. Britney Spears Fantasy the Naughty Remix
I'm getting pathetic with putting this on so many of my wishlists - just get it already, right? As a huge fan of the original Fantasy, I find that this is the best flanker so far because it's just a fruitier version of the original, but still a lovely, warm scent for these colder months. Notes on Fragrantica

9. Aqualina Pink Sugar
A year or so ago, I ordered a sample of this and I was so underwhelmed that I just put in in my purse as a "just-in-case/backup fragrance" (I have a few in there. I'm aware I'm odd, but I feel naked without a fragrance) and forgot about it. I sprayed it one day when I was bored out of my mind waiting for someone and I just loved it so much. I'm a huge fan of candy, sweet fragrances and this is exactly it. It's so cosy and sugary, like a warm hug, but I think it's not completely gourmand like Fantasy. I smell a mix of caramel and liquorice notes, but mostly cotton candy and there are also some fruity notes in the background. 

10. RED CHERRY Eyelashes
Not long ago I wore Ardell's Demi Wispies again and I loved it so much. I know I don't really need falsies, but they look so pretty and eye-catching. I should get the Ardells again, but I'd also like to give these a go. Dizzy Brunette talked about ordering a pack of six from this seller in this post.


I love the colour and it's not too expensive, not to mention I happen to be the skater dress/skirt queen as I wear them throughout all year (I find trousers so restrictive, like little legs prison). I'm just not sure about the fit of this dress. I ordered two of their dresses and I had to fix them, though the quality is great. 

I don't pay much for jewellery as you will see. I think this ring looks cool and it's adjustable, which is always appreciated if you have slim fingers like me.

I've wanted to have this for ages, this and a dainty bow ring, but as someone with slim fingers my choices are limited. This one is supposedly 16 mm wide, which is exactly what I need. I'd love to have the infinity necklace from H&M as well. I just love dainty jewellery.

I haven't had a chance to tell you that I got a new phone and this is the case I chose to keep it in. By the way, from now on the pictures on the blog will be taken with Samsung Galaxy S5.

I'd like to have some more glamorous or metal headbands and the leaves motive appeals to me. This one from H&M is gorgeous as well

Another leaves inspired hair accessory. I just think it looks so pretty. I love the bees version as well

Another gold headband. I've seen a prettier one in H&M in rose gold, but it was 5€, which is a bit much for just a simple hair accessory (I'm one cheap bastard, aren't I?). 

ASOS Petite brand fits me like a glove, which is a rarity, since I'm a short stick of nothing (I get (to me hurtful) comments about my size pretty much daily). It's a really expensive dress for what I usually pay for clothes, but the material looks nice and I really like the colour.

Wallet Case for Smartphone
I like these, though I think it makes it easier to lose everything valuable at once if someone nicks it, but I can't deny it's not damn practical. My wallet is quite big and sometimes I don't want to carry everything with me, so I'm getting one of these. I just can't decide which one. There are so many pretty ones, but I really like these because they have a mirror. Some of my other choices:  1, 2, 3, 4 and 5. Which one do you like best?

So I'm off doing a bit of online shopping. Have a great day!

  1. Pri meni je Sara s objavo Nuts about nuts and cocoa tudi povzročila, da si tako noro želim Balea maslo, ampak tudi želim prej dokončati vsaj eno ali dve drugo maslo za telo.:P

    1. Kaj pa kaj iz Tall kolekcije, si že preizkusila? Meni ustrezajo tudi obleke iz njihove normalne kolekcije, samo so mi potem do kolen (kar je meni všeč). Všeč mi je da imajo številki 2 in 4, ker pri nas skoraj ne dobim tako majhnih stvari razen H&M Divided kolekcije in v Tally Weijl.

      Izbriši
    2. Mislim, da iz Tall kolekcije nisem nič še kupla, ker mi ni blo nič takega všeč :P ..jaz mam eno oblekco iz normalne kolekcije in mi super paše, ker je tud daljši model :)
      Na začetku sem bla malo smotana in nisem videev gledla kako drugih modelom pašejo oblekce in itak da sem vse prekratke kupla :P
      Pol si pa res še suhica, maš tako majhne številke :3 Jaz imam vedno številko 6, če pa tega ni pol res 4 :P

    4. Meni so pa povečini obleke daljše kot na modelih, zato si ne upam midi krila kupit :D Yup, I'm really skinny, večinoma kupujem številko 4/EU32 če jo imajo, drugače pa 6 oz. XS, samo te stvari mi dostikrat čudno stojijo.

  4. Za Hourglass Ambient Lightning Powder lahko počakaš da bo na Net-a-porter brezplačna poštnina in naročiš tam (mislim da bo v roku enega meseca/ko se zaključi trenutna razprodaja) :) Imam pa od njih paletko rdečil in zelo priporočam, če se odločaš med obema izdelkoma!

  5. Jaz sem ravnokar izkorisitila 5 funtov, ki mi jih je podaril Feelunique in kupila L'Oreal True Match, ravno v tem odtenku N1. Tako, da moraš zdaj izkorisiti, ko dobiš kakšne popuste za rojstni dan. ;) Jaz pa kar čakam nov Fantasy parfum - tisti s kokosom in stepeno smetano. Upam, da sploh pride v Evropo:)

      Sem si tud ravno naročala N1.

    2. Meni niso še nikoli dali popust za rojstni dan :( Sem pa dobila kodo za 20% kot opravičilo, ker mi že dva tedna niso odposlali paketa (still waiting :/).
      Potem čakam na vajino oceno, pa vsaj da vidim kakšen približno je odtenek :)
      Pa jaz bi tudi tisti novi Fantasy, samo sumim, da ga ne bo še kmalu. Lets hope for the best :)

    3. A res? Jaz pa sem že nekajkrat dobila za rojstni dan kodo za 5 funtov popusta pri nakupu nad 20 funtov. Se mi je zdelo, da je to stalna praksa. Mogoče nista naročeni na novičke? Al pa nista dodali datuma rojstva? :/

      Izbriši
    4. Ma zdajle sem videla, da nimam rojstnega datuma gor, ker ga ponavadi ne maram dajat, že tako dobijo preveč podatkov o meni. Ampak za 5 funtov pa bom :D

    5. Jooj moj je šele novembra -.-" Pa saj mogoče sem ga dobila, ampak sploh ne berem novičk -.-"

  9. I wish that we would live in the same country (I'm from Germany) - So that you could maybe order two pumps for the NARS foundation and just give one to me! I'm in the same situation, I don't get up to 50 Euros for an order on nars.eu, but I don't want to pay the ridiculously high shipping either (although I'd just have to pay 10 Euros, but still too much).
    If shipping from Slovenia doesn't cost 10 Euros from you to me, maybe we could solve it that way and I'd give you the money for it through Paypal? Only if you want to, though.
