Currently Coveting #1

Currently Coveting...


Hello Lovelies,

When it came time to writing this weeks blog post, I was trying to come up with some ideas on what I could write about. I don't know about you, but I personally love finding out about things that others are currently loving or wanting, whether it be beauty, clothing, TV series they're watching, anything ! So I decided to put together a little collection of things I'm "Currently Coveting". I'm thinking about making this into a monthly series and each month post a bunch of new items. So without further ado, let's jump straight into it!

TopShop Lipstick in Inhibition. I'll admit I haven't always been the biggest fan of dark plum/berry lipsticks, but I have always loved seeing them on others. I used to think I was far too pale to be able to pull them off without ending up looking a little gothic or vampy, and always just stuck to my trusty reds and pinks. I'd probably have to put it down to one of my gorgeous best friends - Tiara - who, like me, lives on the paler side of life. I always envied how gorgeous dark hue lipsticks looked on her, so one day I bite the bullet and bought one and have never looked back. After finding this gorgeous lipstick from TopShop, I definitely need to get my hands on it for Autumn and Winter.

Urban Decay Naked 3 Palette. Personally, I think this item is pretty self explanatory. I can't even begin to describe how much I love the array of 12 different colours in this palette. I'm still trying to figure out a way of justifying spending $50+ on an eye shadow palette, but you can never have too many eye shadow palettes... Right ? Plus it comes in a stunning rose gold tin case.

Nars Highlighter in Copacabana. Now, by no means is this a new product, but I've recently become very fond of using a cream highlighter to add a a gorgeous glow to my skin. Now that cooler weather is on it's way, I much prefer to use creamy products then powders, as the skin will naturally become drier, so I love the dewy and healthy look that cream products give to the skin.

Miss Selfridge Black Felt Fedora. I don't think there is anything more annoying than when you've put effort into styling your hair and suddenly it's ruined by gale force winds and torrential downpours - Okay maybe that's a little extreme - but I love the idea of just being able to put on a super chic hat and not have to worry about whether your hair is turning into a big frizzy birds nest. I love this one from Miss Selfridge with the added ribbon, as I think it jazz's it up a little.

Yankee Candle in Vanilla Cupcake. I am a sucker for anything that is fragrant or smelly - in a nice way. After hearing about Yankee Candles from all over the internet, I recently discovered that they are stocked in Spotlight. I was originally worried I'd have to order then on line and just hope that the fragrances I was choosing would turn out as lovely as they sounded, but thankfully I am able to go in store and purchase them in person. The Yankee Candle's range from $3.99 to $49.95 depending on what size candle you're wanting to purchase. And who wouldn't want their house smelling like a vanilla cupcake all year round ?!

Alexa Chung "It". when it comes to reading, you're probably almost never going to find me tucked away in a corner or comfy chair reading a novel - unless it's an incredible one - but I definitely do have my fair share of beauty books. So when I heard that Alexa Chung was bringing out a book of her own, I couldn't contain my excitement. I haven't been able to find it in local book stores - maybe I'm not looking hard enough, maybe they just don't stock it - but I have definitely decided that I need to jump on line or get my hands on it pronto !

Asos Brady Low Rise Slim Boyfriend Jeans - I've always been a lover of just your average high waisted blue skinny jeans, because I love how versatile they are.They can be worn like regular mid or low rise jeans, plus they can also be worn with a super cute tucked in blouse or top. I have recently though, discovered my love of boyfriend jeans, it may be because I recently stumbled upon some images of Kim Kardashian rocking them - don't judge me - or it may just be the comfy but still chic look that they give. I am definitely still a little hesitant on buying a pair, as I am unsure as to how they'd sit on me, but all-in-all I love the trend.

Essie Nail Polish in Wicked. Now that I can finally say I'm not a nail biter - fingers crossed - I love to have my nails painted, as I no longer have my short stubby ugly nails that I was once incredibly embarrassed about. Just as I have fallen madly in love with dark hue lipsticks, same goes for nail polishes. Lately I have been wearing O.P.I's "Casino Royale" from their Skyfall collection - which you can find a photo of on my Instagram, but I definitely think "Wicked" will be one nail polish that needs to be added to my collection

The Tudors Season 4. I know I am EXTREMELY late jumping onto the band wagon, but I am so glad I finally have ! I - not so secretly - love documentaries and TV shows which are based on different times in history and could sit there for hours on end - which I previously have - and watch countless episodes. I had previously watched the BBC mini series "The White Queen" and loved it and thought I'd move on and begin watching The Tudors. So the other night when I had nothing to do, I decided to hop into bed and watch a few episodes that night. This then resulted in me watching 3 series of it, in only a matter of days - trust me, I am slightly ashamed to admit that. I am currently now up to Series 4, which I haven't begun yet though, as I am trying to stretch out the amazingness of the TV show a little longer - some how, I don't think I'll be able to hold off much longer. Did I also mention that Jonathan Rhys Meyers and Henry Cavill are in it ? Definitely give both TV Series a go if you haven't watched them and can also handle a little bit of blood and guts.

I hope you all enjoyed what I am "currently coveting" and maybe even stumbled upon a few things you'd like to check out. I'd love for you to leave me a comment below or on my social networking sights and let me know of some things you're lusting over at the moment.

Have an incredible rest of the week and I will speak to you all next Wednesday ! : )
