My Selfridges Wishlist

mulberry

This post is actually killing me. All the beautiful, shiny, new and expensive things I can only dream of. Sighhhh…. Every time I walk through Selfridges, I feel like I should spend all my money there. I have a thing for bags (well, more of an obsession, really) and accessories, and Selfridges is like paradise for me. If I’d list all the items that are on my wishlist, this would’ve been posted in about three years, so I only chose a very very very small part of my wishlist, including items by Mulberry (favourite brand!), Michael Kors and Stella McCartney.

1. Alexa grainy calf leather satchel: Oh, wonderful shiny blush beauty! This is my dream bag, and one day, I will buy it!

2. Willow leather wallet: And while I’m at it, I’m also going to get this beautiful nude wallet.

3. Heart purse: ….Aaand this cute heart purse. Or the valentine heart key ring.

4. Heart key ring: It seems like key rings are my new obsession. And this girly one would definitely be one of the first in my collection.

5. Jet-set extra small saffiano tote: The MK signature jet set tote and a real beauty of a bag, made of saffiano leather with a really cool colour.

6. Stretchy bead bracelet: In rose gold and for only 59 pounds! Does anyone have some spare 59 pounds…? Anyone??

7. Triple label blazer: A very chic and business-y blazer which I’d probably wear at work.

8. Floral skinny jeans: Yes, it’s a pair of jeans. And yes, I haven’t worn jeans for over two years. But I’d make an exception for these!

9. Embroidered lace dress: A very elegant dress, similar to one I already own. But you just can’t have enough dresses, can you? I love the material and colour!

Wish Magazine – Everything You Could Wish For

A few months ago, in May, Carrie of wishwishwish.net told us a secret which had taken up a lot of her time during her last months at University. She and her ‘partner in crime’, Lucy of shinythoughts.com, had created a magazine. A magazine which is nostalgic, vintagey, stylish, dreamy, childish, creative, beautiful, British, timeless, lovely, exciting, and truly everything you could wish for in a magazine – Wish Magazine! I instantly pre-ordered a copy, which arrived yesterday after they had a few problems with the printing company at Wish house.

The 86 page magazine is full of breathtaking photos, vintage style clothes, shoes and accessories worn by beautiful models, lovingly drawn illustrations and calligraphy, a summer playlist, secrets by people from all over the world, a career quiz, a style section, a list of afternoon tea places you should try out, a poster, baking and a wonderful article about pen pals (…”about a time when chatting to a friend didn’t involve pressing ‘Enter'”). You simply cannot NOT love this magazine! As Carrie wrote in her Editor’s letter: “Wish allows space for dreaming, without bombarding you with advertising, unattainable price tags or unachievable body shapes. A true collaboration from girls across the universe sharing what they love best.” It’s not one of those magazines you can buy everywhere. It’s unique and full of love, made for ‘Early Grannies’ and people who don’t want to grow up.

Get a copy, a cup of tea and do nothing but reading this magazine for 3 hours while sipping tea..which is what I did. xx
