No Income = WISHLIST TIME!

For the first time in a good 7 years, I'm jobless, and this has been posing several problems for me. The main one being my taste just keeps getting more and more expensive :P So do excuse me while I attempt to channel my 'wants' through the much underrated method of a wishlist:

Skincare


1. Liz Earle Skin Repair Moisturizer for Oily/Combination Skin
This is probably my favourite day moisturizer - it's probably a bit rich to have now in the intense humidity of Japan, but I'm looking forward to getting it when I'm back :)

2. Clinique 3 Step System
This really seems to work for me, so I'm excited to pick up the trial kit campaign they are running in Japan on the 26th :)

3. Bioderma Non-Rinse Cleansing Water for Oily/Combination Skin
I got a tester for this - in love. The great thing is you use it like a toner but it takes off your make up really well and it isn't greasy or drying at all :)
4. Origins OutSmart Sunscreen or Simple Face Sunscreen
I haven't decided which - one is £16 and the other is £6, but I want to make sure that the latter isn't going to have a white cast!

Clothes


I've decided it's time for a clear out - when I get back to the UK, there are some things I need to throw out, mostly clothes that have lost its shape or is just generally knackered.. I know what I like to wear now, so it's time I start investing in better quality clothes on things I know I'll wear, and venturing outside of H&M and Primark! (pics taken from F21 - I know it isn't much of a step up, but hey it's a start :P)

1. Oversized/Boyfriend Blazer
I need one because I know I will wear the heck out of it. It's so ridiculously me that I have no idea why I don't have a tailored one - the one I have now is made out of t-shirt material and starting to lose its shape!

2. Long Tank Top
I live in tank tops, 365 days a year. I love long ones, and I've bought ones from F21 before which has lasted a good 2 years of 3 days a week wear.

3. Patterned Top
I hardly ever get more adventurous than stripes - so I'm trying to branch out a bit :)

Make Up


1. NARS Casino Bronzer
My beloved Rimmel Sunshimmer Bronzer is on its last legs, and while I love that bronzer the staying power just doesn't cut it sometimes so I want to take it up a notch and invest in a higher end bronzer for the first time! Everytime I seem to think: "WOW look at those cheekbones" at another blogger, the culprit is usually Casino!

2. MAC 217
Been craving a bit of sheer wash on my eyes, and I think this would make brighter eyeshadows easier to wear.

3. Dior Addict Lipstick in Miss Dior
I really want peach lipsticks - both pigmented/matte ones and glossy ones, but with the summer time I prefer a glossy one first. I probably wont get this cuz of the price but hey, no harm in including it ey, it's a wishlist :P

4. MAC Face & Body
Thanks to the Clinique 3 Step System my skin has been pretty good, so I've been wanting a sheer foundation. Tbh, this is probably a bit dewy to be wearing now, and Japan's MAC doesn't even stock this so it really is just a mental wishlist :P

Accessories

1. Louis Vuitton Speedy 30 in that pattern
If you saw my "What's In My Bag" video, you can see that I have a poor dupe of it, and it's probably one of my favourite handbags due to its shape and how it doesn't put strain on my shoulders/hips (long story short, I have back/shoulder/hip issues from sports/birth :P) so I really want a good quality one that I wont have to repurchase every 6 months. However, the mother is now adverse to the idea of a uni student owning LV even when saved with own hard-earned cash. Fml.

2. Longchamp Jacquard Tote
I'm a bit meh about this, I really just want a nice tote, and have been searching for a good few weeks now and have none that I'm willing to pay the dosh for. Fail.

3. iPod Nano in Pink
My vintage iPod classic from 5 or 6 years ago is on its last legs, and also in the UK so I haven't had music to bounce to at the gym. In my defense, these babies are cheaper in Japan unlike everything else in the world, so I may as well get them while I'm here. Feel a bit bad for my old iPod though, I get attached to objects quite easily :P

Hair


At the moment I have pretty inconspiciously ombre hair, mostly consisting of highlights on a base colour a shade or 2 lighter than my natural hair colour. I'm thinking I wanna step this up, but I'm not sure if I wanna go full on ombre, or just highlights-ombre.. any ideas?

I'm not even going to put the prices cuz I'd just get upset at how much I'm short by :P

What's #1 on your wishlist atm? :)
Does anyone know how to make collages that don't crop at ridiculous places? Atm I'm using Picasa..
