The Wishlist: Birthday Gift Ideas

As the weather seems to be reminding us, it is now pretty much Autumn - yay! I think it may well be my favourite season, and that is partly because my birthday is in October... in just over 3 weeks time I will be turning the big 2-0 (I won't be a teenager any more, eek!) and slowly I've been trying to compile a list of lovely things I've had my eye on over the past couple of months. I thought I'd share it with you, because I love a good wishlist, but also thought I might give some of you inspiration/get some inspiration back from you!

BEAUTY
There's so many beauty products that I've been writing down on so many different lists, so why not put them on to my collated birthday wish list?!

These are just gorgeous brushes, all vegan friendly, and cruelty free, plus they don't break the bank - perfect!

I'm in need of a new eyeliner and I've heard so many positive things about this, so I'd love to try this!

This was the number 1 lip liner for the Sylist 100 beauty edit and as I'm in need of a new lip liner, I had a look and thought that both of these shades were gorgeous!

OMG, have you seen these? Glitter liner reminds me of my year 6 days, however these gorgeous holographic ones from UD are just insane... Plus the lovely blogger Lucy from whatlucyloves has been singing their praises non stop on Instagram!

I adore NYX, but I LOVE their lip products the best! I'm on the hunt for a gorgeous matte shade that can be worn everyday, and having spent all of yesterday swatching these in boots, I think these two are ideal for that!

I've been lusting after a Too Faced blush for ages, and I'd love to trial this plum toned shade from them, purely because it's unlike anything else I own!

It's sold out everywhere - boo! But, this shade just looks so lovely on everyone, plus I don't own anything from her new soft luxe range yet, so I'd definitely love to give this a go.

Peppermint Foot Rescue Cream/Scrub/Soak - The Body Shop
I wished they did this in one of their gorgeously packaged sets, but I'm so so desperate to get my hands on these products - they smell good and have got top reviews. It's safe to say I don't look after my feet well enough and I hope that this would give them the TLC they deserve!

I use the volume version of this A LOT, but if you haven't already seen, I've chopped my hair off into a lob (long bob FYI), which means I want all of the texture! This is from one of my favourite hair brands and I think it wouldn't leave any nasty residue in your hair, unlike other texturising sprays...
 
FASHION
I love getting clothes for birthday presents, but having had a look round I've realised it's mainly accessories that have struck me this year!

Printed Slogan Clutch Bag - Katie Loxton
Our local bridal shop (The Bespoke Wardrobe) started selling these divine clutch bags a couple of months ago, and they are to die for! I have my eye on the teal "Mine all mine" and rose gold "Be Brilliant" pouches.


I'm not particularly a fan of chokers, however when I saw someone wearing this the other day, I HAD to ask them where it was from as I think it's a lovely accessory!

This seems to be the perfect autumnal bag, plus I love the size, shape and decoration of this one particularly! 

If you read my intu Lakeside Personal Shopper review, then you'd know that I had tried on some Levi jeans. I am in love with the black mile high skinny pair, but also have my eye on the 721 high rise skinny in wild sea.

Scarf - Zara
Having lost my affectionately named blanket scarf at the end of last winter, I am in desperate need of a new one - it's just so cosy, warm and a necessity in my opinion! This gorgeous neutral check is perfect for almost any outfit so definitely had to be added to the list...


I have loved my Kate Spade card holder that I picked up in the US last summer, so much so that I've used it to death and I'd be super grateful for a new one... This floral one is lovely!

LIFESTYLE
Only a couple of things in this category, but both things are very high up on the wish list!

Marble and Copper Jewellery Stand - Oliver Bonas
I need better jewellery organisation, and what better way to do that than by getting a beautiful jewellery stand! It's a typical blogger purchase, but I don't really mind, because just look at it's gorgeousness...

Our Girl Series 1 - Amazon
I loved this when it was on 3 years ago, and I have to admit, I don't think Michelle Keegan is doing too badly in the new series! Having it back on my TV means that I'd love to watch the first season again...

VOUCHERS
Whilst some people may think it's a cop out, I love getting vouchers as it means I often do end up getting something that I wouldn't normally buy as I can put a voucher towards it!

I just love going into Selfridges and wondering around, plus I'd love to get something from Charlotte Tilbury, so a Selfridges voucher would be perfect!

I have to admit, River Island isn't really somewhere I frequent regularly, however more recently there's been a few pieces I have my eye on!

New Look have so many lovely skirts in at the moment, so much so I put this voucher on my list as soon as I walked out of the shop!


You can never go wrong with a boots voucher, so of course I had to put this on my wishlist! 

Do you have anything that you think definitely should feature on my wishlist? Are you an October baby, too (because you'd deserve a massive high 5 for that!)? Hope you have a great week!
