May Day Wish list

I'm not sure Brits celebrate any sort of May Day traditions anymore. Unless you live in a quaint little village, the bank holiday is just another excuse for many to hit the pubs and have a merry ol' time. Naturally, as a woman with a toddler responsibilities, I couldn't possibly sit in a beer garden all day - even when I really, really want to - and so here I am, writing out this wish list. You might remember I wrote a wish list in January, and despite it being super simple, I didn't end up with anything! Well, I did get a new pushchair for Dylan but that totally doesn't count... This time, I'm hoping to treat myself to a few things, god knows after my stressful few months I deserve it (even if I do say so myself)!

Gretta Dress - Gwenna Pinafore - Harper Bag
I seem to have stuck to a spring pastels colour scheme here, haven't I? I don't think I need to explain why I've included either of these dresses - the striped yellow dress is simply perfection and the teal pinafore is equally beautiful. I love that it has pockets, too! I'm trying to change my style a bit, and I've always dreamed of wearing dresses pretty much every day so these two would contribute to that change. I'm hoping to shift a little weight so if I can manage that I'll definitely treat myself to these. 

If you asked Joe, he would instantly tell you that I don't need anymore bags. He might even say I have too many bags, which is just absurd. This cornflower blue Fiorelli bag looks so soft, I almost want to smush my face into it. But I will settle for owning it and stroking it on every possible occasion. If money were no object - and Joe wouldn't find out - I would also treat myself to the mandarin colour as well. A girl can dream, right?


Up Phone case - The Smiths Print - Peacock Charm
After watching Up again for the millionth time - and getting ridiculously upset over the sad start, more so than usual! - I started looking at phone cases. Yep, that's how my mind works, friends. I currently have a super boring black rubber thing on my phone at the moment, and I'd love to inject a bit of my Disney-mad self onto it. I love the design of this case, although there were plenty to choose from! Next up, I picked this The Smiths Print. There's currently an offer in which you can buy all four album art work pieces for the price of three, which is a bargain if I ever saw one. Again, I would maybe have to lie to Joe about the cost and whatnot, but sometimes you've got to do that sort of thing to get what you really, really want. 

I feel like I always chuck a Pandora charm onto my wish lists, and why not? I've got the bracelet and it has plenty of room. This peacock one has actually featured on a wish list before, so it seems like a crime that I don't own it! The gems are so pretty - my favourite colours, don't you know - and would really compliment my new bag and dresses. 


Do you like my pickings? Or can you think of something else I need to add to my wish list?

  7. I love, love, love the Up phone case! It's one of my favourite films - each time me and the other half watch it, we only get about 20 minutes in until we have to pause it while we both finish crying! I will definitely have to get myself one of those cases :-) x
