Autumn 2014 Wishlist

Hi!

I haven't done a wishlist in so long, so I put together some of the things I'd love to get my grubby little mitts on at the moment.



Leather Shoe Boots - €49.99, New Look. 
It's not Autumn until new boots are purchased. Truth be told, there's nothing wrong with the ones I got from New Look last year, but I don't own a pair of ankle or shoe boots and these ones look really nice and simple. Plus, they're wide fit which is great for chunky socks.

Grey Collarless Coat - €64.99, New Look.
A new coat is also a must - and this one is really pretty. I love that it's collarless, it means I could wear a scarf without creating extra bulk around my already stumpy neck.

Dior Pure Poison - from €54, Boots.
I've probably put this on most of my wishlists, but I will eventually repurchase it! It was the first perfume my now-husband ever bought me for Christmas, and it's one of my favourites. It's the ultimate Autumn/Winter comfort perfume.

Ibiza: The Album - £11, Amazon.
If you're a fan of Jenny Greene on 2fm, you NEED THIS. I really want to get it for the first 2 CDs alone (I can do without CD3 and its Calvin Harris-ness) - this is all about the nostalgia. Featuring tracks by Sash!, Robert Miles, BBE, DJ Jean, Binary Finary - this is the soundtrack to my late teens and I need it, now. As soon as I find a digital copy from somewhere other than it*nes, I'm all over it.

Hozier: Hozier - Released on September 22
This is an album I've been waiting patiently for months for, and I'm glad it's almost here. Hozier (real name Andrew Hozier-Byrne, who hails from Bray) has released some fantastic songs over the past few months, and I can't wait to see what else he has in store.

Yankee Candle in Amber Moon - €1.75 - €17.95, Yankee.ie.
I recently purchased a pack of samplers from Yankee Candles' new Autumn range. I fell in love with this one - Amber Moon. With prices starting from under €2 for the tart, this is something I'll definitely be buying in a larger version. All large jars are €17.95 throughout the month of August on yankee.ie, including new releases. Bargain!

Essie "Dress to Kilt" Collection for Fall 2014 - $3.99 each plus postage on eBay.com
I'm disgusted with the Halloween nail polish collections this year - OPI have gone with a Peanuts release (because when I think Halloween, I think of Charlie Brown..........not), while China Glaze have lost their minds and gone with the fugliest group of lacquers that I've seen since the Barry M pastel textures. Good old reliable Essie never fail to please - this years Fall collection is full of rich, smooth colours. Particular stand-outs for me include the murky jade green shade Fall In Line and the dark teal shade The Perfect Cover Up. As per, I'll be picking these up from one my favourite eBay sellers, because there's no way in high hell I'll be paying a tenner a pop for these in Boots - the entire collection would cost €60 in a chemist here, whereas it's €31 for all six shades INCLUDING postage from beautyzone2007 here (who I've used several times with no problems - but the polishes are almost always the ones with the thin brush). Baa-aar-gain.

Nutri-Bullet, €120 Brown Thomas or £99 Amazon.
See, this is what happens when you have babies. You end up watching JML direct or QVC at Stupid O'Clock and convincing yourself you need a mop that paints or a saucepan that will never burn. I became obsessed with the Airfryer after watching an infomercial, and it turned out to be one of my best and most-used buys ever - so when I saw the Nutribullet, and similar obsession levels began, I put it straight on the wishlist. Can I afford 120 eurobucks for a blender? No. Will I use it to make kale and beetroot smoothies? No. Do I really, really, really want it? Yes. Will I promise myself I'll clean it properly, immediately after using it, just like the George Foreman, while in reality I'll forget about it and end up scraping bits of food off it? Probably.

What's on your wishlist for Autumn?

  1. I really like that coat and yay for it not being double-breasted, I find most coats are and I just can't wear them.

    1. I'm definitely going to try and track it down in reality and have a look at it, if it's as heavy as it looks I think it could be a winner!

  2. Love the boots! I've been intrigued by the nutribullet but I believe in my €25 blender and I don't see how the bullet could better it!

    1. I've actually had a recommendation on twitter for a Breville one that's a third of the price, so I think I'll be going for that one instead, I don't like juices enough to justify the price of the Nutribullet! The Breville one comes with smaller juice bottles and larger ones so it'd be perfect for getting some extra veg into the boys too.

  3. God I love that coat! I only venture into newlook the odd time. Sometimes the quality isn't the best but I need that coat.

    1. I like browsing the website when they get new season stock in, I don't actually go to the shop very often at all - they seem to put the gimmicky slogan stuff out front and it's a real turn off, at least it can be avoided on the site! Got a pair of jeans and a bag and a cardigan from the summer sale via the site and the quality was great, I have a few dresses of theirs too and they're grand, but with that coat I think it definitely has to be tried on! x

    1. Always happy to enable! They look like great strong basics, whatever about the coat, I do think these will be making their way through the door over the next few weeks! x

  5. That coat is lovely! I should really get a new coat myself, mine is a few years old but it's still going well. I do like the look of the Peanuts collection but ya not very Halloweeny. Those Essie ones are classic autumnal shades

    1. The Essies are just pure Autumn aren't they? I like Essie a lot, I think they're good quality and they know how to put a collection together (with the exception of that dodgy black belugaria one or whatever that was called) I was SO disappointed with China Glaze, they usually have the best Halloween collections. Pink glitter is not Halloweeny!!!
