Lust list

It's my birthday in March and I have been thinking about what I would like (its never too early!)  Also our annual work bonus is payable in February-I don't know what it is yet but I will find out at the end of this week and although I want to save most of it I want to set aside some for an upcoming holiday and maybe a couple of treats!

At the weekend I composed a wishlist and here it is.....having said that yesterday I flew to Cairo and I purchased one of the items at Dubai Duty Free-pre-empting my bonus a little bit! 

Having said that I have had a ridiculously expensive first 5 weeks of January 2013 paying for various things coming up in 2013 so am putting myself on a self imposed shopping ban *now* until I go on holiday.

Here's what's on my current lust list

1-Nikon 1 J3 camera in red. 
I am hoping to get this from Mike for my birthday.  Currently I am using his big DSLR camera for taking blog photos but its really heavy and not very portable so I like the look of this smaller 'point and shoot' model from Nikon which also has interchangeable lens.  Also, my little compact camera recently died when one of my cats spilled a glass of cordial on it.  This was disappointing as I had previously actually dropped it down a toilet at my friends 30th and it survived! 

2-Baies candle from Dipthyque
I do love candles!  Love the smell of this luxury candle from Dypthique which looks amazing on any dressing table

3-Ipad mini in white.
This is what I bought at Dubai Duty Free yesterday.  I got an ipad from Xmas but this one is perfect for travelling with being lighter and more compact.  As I travel a lot and take my laptop with me it means I can leave my ipad at home for Mike to use whilst I am away and I can have the ipad mini with me.  Loving it so far :-)

4-Robinson Cross Body bag from Tory Burch
I have been looking for the perfect hands free cross body bag for what seems like an age and have fallen in love with this one from Tory Burch.  I love love love the hot red colour which is exclusive to Selfridges.  This is definitely something I want to pick up for myself once my bonus is paid as I think I will get so much use out of it.  I also love Saffiano leather which is what this bag is made out of-its really durable and shiny!

5-Azature nail polish in Pink Diamond
How adorable is this nail polish!  Azature are the makers of the most expensive nail polish in the world retailing at a cool £160,000.  This is their more affordable line at Selfridges and they have just launched a range of colours as a follow up to their 'Black Diamond' Christmas 2012 launch.

6-Guerlain blusher
I don't actually know if this is launched yet as I can't find it anywhere on the internet but this beautiful blusher from Guerlain is part of (I think) their Spring 2013 range.  As soon as it launches I want to get my hands on it!

7-Paul and Joe Blusher Stick in Catfight
How adorable!  I don't know if I could actually bear to use this cat shaped blusher stick from Paul and Joe!  It's so aesthetically pleasing being the mad cat girl that I am!  But I would definitely treasure it!

8-Escentric Molecule 1 perfume
There was lots of buzz in the beauty blogger world about this perfume at the end of last year and I have to admit I am intrigued.  The scent smells different on everyone, working with your own natural pheromones to create the scent making it completely bespoke-and apparently very sexy-think 'the Lynx' effect but even better!  I'll probably just buy a very small bottle to see how it smells on me.

9-Emma Hardie Amazing Face cleansing balm
A new brand to me that everyone seems to be raving about.  Dying to try this melt away cleansing balm by Emma Hardie which contains Moringa seed extract, wild sea fennel, vitamin E, orange, neroli and mandarin, jasmine, cedarwood and rose-quite a cocktail!  Am always on the look out for new cleansers so will probably pick this up in the UK
