Needs, Wants & Essentials


I must have had my head buried in the sand lately. As only recently have these gorgeous Alex and Ani bracelets come onto my radar. I think they are adorable and I love the idea that you stack the bracelets rather than collect charms. There is a few in the collection that I want, but the heart one is on the top of my list. I also love the fact that they are very reasonably priced at approx. €30 each.

One of my work colleagues was wearing this recently and I thought it was absolutely beautiful. It is super delicate and really simple but very pretty. I don't own any nice rings so this is on the top of my wish list.

I was in town during my lunch break the other day and when I was wandering around I spotted this beauty. It is beautiful and a lot brighter in real life. I would love to splurge and purchase it, but how much use would I actually get out of it? I feel if I am going to splurge on a handbag it should be one with a timeless style. I am in need to a good black handbag for work, so this will have to firmly remain on my wish list.

I have been stuck in a rut with my wardrobe lately. I feel I am wearing the same items constantly. I read that when you feel like this you should go back to basics. This staple will match with most items. I want it to pair with my skinny jeans and just pop a coat over it.

Dylon Black Dye 
This is a random item on my wish list, and technically it shouldn't feature on my 'wish list' as I am going to purchase it within the next few days. However, my friend recently mentioned this product and I had to share it with you as I had never considered using it but thought it was a fantastic idea. Do you find that your black jeans fade? My Topshop "Leigh" jeans are guilty of this! Well, instead of always buying a new pair, just dye your old pair. This dye makes it a super simple task. You just empty this sachet into the washing machine drum and voilĂ  your black jeans are as good as new.

New Look Buckle Ankle Boots
I don't know why at the onset of summer I decided I am in dire need of black ankle boots. I think this is a knock on effect from my wardrobe rut. I am wearing my Ugg's far too much, but it was proving difficult finding a comfortable alternative. I saw these on New Look's website and ordered them. I hope they look as cute as the picture.

Converse All Star Oxford Black 
I was trawling through Pinterest the other day and came across a few OOTD's where the girls had paired black converse with black skinnies and I really liked the look. I think it screams effortlessly cool. Therefore, I need them in my life.

Whistles Medium Clutch
This featured in one of my previous wish lists but I still have not bought it. I simply can't justify the price tag, as I mainly want to use it as a make up bag. Although I do feel it would last forever and you have the option of using it as a clutch. So I may be swayed in the future.

Juice Cube 
I am sure everyone who owns an iPhone requires one of these in his or her life. It is an extra charge for your phone so if you are out and around and out battery runs out, you simply hook this device up to your phone and it will charge it. Ingenious? Yes! What would be more ingenious is if apple figured out to make your battery last more than 4 hours.

What is on your wish list? Or have you bought an item lately that you have been lusting after for quite some time?
