Summer Wishlist

With Summer just around the corner, and the end of my university life (seriously, how did three years come and go so fast?!), I've recently found myself lusting after a few new items to spruce up my wardrobe, and my look for that fresh summer look.

1. Dior Addict Fluid Stick, Shade 373 Rieuse.
Recently I've been on hunt for something, well really anything with staying power for my lips. Most stuff I tend to use wears off quickly, and I desperately want something with maximum strength to stay on pretty much all day. So imagine how thrilled I was when I opened June's issue of Cosmopolitan and saw the advert for this inside! It's described as 'The one coat do-it-all hybrid lip fluid. High impact colour, glossy shine, fabulous wear.' Needless to say, I was excited, and now it's my number 1 must have.

The fluid stick comes in 16 different shades, and is as easy to use as a regular lipstick. When I (eventually) get around to buying this, I will most likely go for shade 373, 'Rieuse'. It's a nice pale rose colour, and for me I feel that the pale colours suit me better. Most times I prefer a paler shade compared to that of 575, 'Wonderland' for example. This shade is gorgeous too, but then I might save this for special occasions where I really want to make a statement with my lips. :)

It's a shame I couldn't get this when I visited Boots the other day. I was really looking forward to it, but the assistant at the Dior counter sadly seemed more interested in doing anything other than helping me. So instead, I went to the Benefit counter, where the assistant was ALOT more helpful! Also, because of this, I was unable to get a price. If anybody knows around about how much this costs, please let me know! Want to know how much it's going to break the bank haha :)

2. Gold Metal Plated Collar Necklace, Accessorize.

At the moment, I am in love with such big statement necklaces like this! I spent ages looking around for the perfect necklace, and so far, this one from accessorize has been the closest I could find that I feel would suit me. It could be used to add detail to any outfit, and I will definitely be purchasing this soon. At the moment I have a similar looking one from Tesco's F&F Jewellery range, which looks amazing when paired with a normally downplayed outfit. But in my opinion, you can never have too much jewellery! :)

3. 'HOLD OUT' Leather Heeled Sandals, ASOS.
I love, love, love, LOVE these! Browsing ASOS the other day I seriously had to resist impulse buying these (payday where are you?!). The coral colour is a nice contrast with the white, making the shoes a perfect must have for summer. Personally I think these would look stunning with a white bikini, and maybe the gold necklace mentioned above?! Who knows, maybe it's a look I'll try (if I ever find myself on a beach at some point this summer).

4. Eichi Matsunaga Nails.
Again, I saw these nails when browsing on ASOS, and now I can't wait for my finals to be over so I can treat myself to a manicure! These nails are done by Japanese nail artist Eichi Matsunaga, and by browsing his instagram page (linked below), I've got so much inspiration on what to do with my nails next. When I attempt these (however badly my nail painting skills may be), I'll be sure to update this blog! Ahh the end of finals is so clearly in sight!

5. Two-Piece Tropical Bikini, River Island.
Bikini Top - £16
Bikini Bottoms - £12
Opening up June's issue of Cosmopolitan, I immediately fell in love with this bikini, and was even more excited to see that it was at a reasonable price! I used to hate it that you have to buy the top and bottom separately, but now I've embraced mixing and matching! The bottoms would look cute with a plain coloured coral top, and vice versa with the top and some plain leafy green coloured bottoms (but hey, that's just my opinion. What about yours?) However at the moment, even though I'm lusting after this SO much, I can't justify buying it. Somebody take me on holiday so I can treat myself to this? Haha.

Hope you enjoyed my '5 Summer Must Haves'! What are your summer must haves?
