Fashion and Beauty Summer Wishlist

I've been finding every excuse to order things online lately... My shopping addition has come back again in full swing and I just can't find a way to stop it, so what the hell, I might as well embrace it right? I'm putting it down to Glastonbury next week and all of the last minute shopping you could probably imagine (and a whole lot of returns to boot too!) but you know, just because I've been doing more shopping than normal, it doesn't make me want to shop any less! In fact it has the adverse effect and makes me want to shop more. Does anyone else find that? I can go for months and months without needing to buy much but then once I do, I want to buy it all. So these are the bits I'm eyeing up at the minute and I just can't quite get them out of my head...

First up are the two dresses. The Kaleidoscope Floral Print Silk Dress by Topshop Boutique, totally out of my budget but it's the most beautiful thing and I need it in my life. I've got a thing for dungaree style things ever since I picked up these black dungarees from Topshop, obsessed doesn't quite cover it and so I've been eyeing up all of the denim dungaree style dresses on the market recently and this Petite Denim Pinafore Dress from Topshop is exactly what I'm looking for. I love the idea of layering pretty pieces underneath to change the look of the outfit. So many uses out of dungaree style things and that's completely why I love them! 

This Cream Lace Long Sleeve Shirt from River Island is just gorgeous. I could totally see this being layered underneath the Topshop Denim dress and just worn on its own. The detail is beautiful! 

I've fallen in love with blue toned mirrored sunglasses, they are incredible and I've got a little bit of a story that goes along with these LIVNOW Sunglasses by Quay via. Topshop. I saw them when I was in the Topshop on Oxford Street while I was killing a little bit of time before a meeting and fell in love but at £25 and after the amount of money I'd been spending lately alongside Glastonbury coming up I wasn't quite sure if I could justify it but I knew I was coming back later in the day so decided to let fate decide, and if they were still there, I'd buy them. So after my meeting, I headed back to Topshop and ALL I could think about was the glasses. I get a little crazy over things like this. I was meant to be hunting for a graduation dress, but the glasses had taken over my mind. I needed them. But they weren't there, they were gone. MY HEART BROKE. And I needed them even more. So I browsed the internet and found them online on the Topshop site so decided I'd have to buy them on there... but I wanted them right away. I literally couldn't wait for them. But like I'd said before, if they weren't there when I got back then surely it was fate and I didn't need them, right? Wrong. I did need them. But I went on the hunt for a graduation dress anyway but I just wasn't in the right frame of mind (and every dress I tried on just wasn't right), so eventually I just decided to go home. I decided to have one last look for the sunglasses before I left and they were sitting there. So I grabbed them, tried them on and stupidly decided I wasn't sure if I liked them anymore, so I left them. Now, I'm completely thinking that I should have got them as they've still been on my mind since. I just want a gorgeous pair of sunnies with a blue mirror detailing, is that so much to ask?! 

Onto the makeup, and as I mentioned I'm heading to Glastonbury next week and I cannot wait. I've picked up this Glitter Pot in Periwinkle from Topshop and the Facial Glue to keep it stuck on but now I've been thinking about this shade. The Topshop Glitter Pot in Flash is just gorgeous and I'm thinking I may have to take a trip back to pick one up. 

Onto Lipsticks and of course they're from NARS. Does my obsession with them ever stop? I don't think so! I'm eyeing up the NARS Velvet Matte Lip Pencils in Cruella and Train Bleu. Both gorgeous statement lip shades and these too would be perfect for Glasto as I've heard what great quality they are. Super pretty! Last but not least is a brush from NARS and I'm talking the NARS #44 Precision Contour Brush, it looks amazing and perfect for those detailed eye looks I can't quite seem to nail down because I've not got the right brushes. This would be the perfect addition to my brush collection and I think I may just have to bite the bullet and pick one up. NARS brushes are great quality so I know I won't be disappointed. 

I don't think there's anything in this list I can't see myself not getting. I need them all! I do however always make sure to check out Fashion Beans for any discount codes. I'm a discount code fiend and it always helps me to justify the spending, every little helps right? That's my justification anyway. 

What are you eyeing up at the minute?
