…which I don’t.

And neither does anyone else I know, so this is all just a bit of wishful thinking.

Owl, John Lewis, Liberty, Not on the High Street

John Lewis £50

I’ve been looking for some little features for my totally overcrowded book shelf, and think this owl lamp could be just the ticket.  Although the vacant eyes might give me the creeps at night…?

Maybelline, The Falsies, Waterproof, Volum Express

Chemists approx £8

This is seriously the best mascara that I’ve tried in YONKS.  It doesn’t uncurl just-curled eyelashes, it doesn’t budge with anything other than waterproof eye makeup remover AND you can build and build and build for mega lashes. I’m all about the mega lashes. I’d like a job lot of this please.

Lilash, eyelash growth serum

Currently only available in America. Approx $90

And while I’m talking about eyelashes, never mind building them up, this stuff MAKES THEM GROW. Seriously.  I’ve read a million reviews and this stuff apparently works! And not like the ‘put vaseline on your eyelashes’ and all those other beauty tips where you never ever see a difference (ever).  It actually makes them longer and thicker. Need. It.

Oasis, Sequinned, mini skirt, sparkly, sequin

Oasis £80

For the days when you want to dress like a glitter ball. Which, for me, is everyday.

Daria Morgendorffer, Jane Lane, Trent Lane, Quinn Morgendorffer, Upchuck

Another thing that isn’t actually available to buy here (or online by the looks of it. When did this exist?!).  Sob.

I so wanted to be in the Fashion Club.

Chloe, Darla, Net-A-Porter, It Bag

Darla by Chloe.  Net-A-Porter £1115

This is the most grown up bag in the world! If this doesn’t get rid of my inner Peter Pan (or Wendy perhaps? Was never able to pay attention to Hook. I hated Ruffio too much), nothing will!

Dish bunny, rabbit dish rack

Design 55 £27

Yes yes, what kind of person wants a crockery drainer for Christmas?! But this isn’t just any old crockery drainer… it’s got a rabbit on it!

Chase and Sorenson, Danish, Teak, Vintage arm chair

Mark Parrish £225

This is my perfect ‘reading’ chair. Well, almost perfect.  I’d fix/ruin it (depending on your idea of taste…) by recovering the cushions in some kind of gaudy, twee fabric obviously.

Diptyque candle

Liberty £38

And this is how I’d like my flat to smell while I’m sitting in my chair, wearing my sparkly skirt, watching Daria, growing my eyelashes etc etc…

Like most girls, I don’t actually need a new pair of shoes… but that hasn’t stopped me having a little crush on these:

Topshop Klaxon £58

These are the kind of shoes that I always buy thinking that they’ll be ‘day shoes’.  Because they’re flat, they’ll be instantly wearable to even the most conservative and sombre places, right? Like maybe even to work? Or perhaps not.

Still, they’d be good for the pub, perhaps with a floral mini, black tights and my new favourite oversized black jumper… ? But I’d have to spend the night with my feet on a chair. Not because they’d hurt (being flats and all… although I do have a bit of a bad habit of buying shoes slightly too small… damn shoe companies for failing to do half sizes…!) but because they’re a bit too pretty to spend the night under a table.

I think I need this for the little drinky party I’m having next Friday…

Topshop £45

Dressed down with denim shorts, black tights and platform ankle boots?

But it might detract from my other new sparkly accessory (to be unveiled properly soon) and I can’t be having that…
