Weekend wishlist #3

Wants 3

1) Plaited Shopper Bag - Zara - £79.99 2) Frédéric Fekkai Summer Hair Marine Beach Waves - Amazon - £22.93 
3) Real Techniques Core Collection 1403 - Boots - £21.99 4) Lion's Head Door Knocker Bracelet - River Island - £10
5) Studded Pony Skin Slippers - Zara - £49.99 6) Chasing Wolves Necklace - Topshop - £18.50

1) 'The' Zara bag everyone is after at the moment. I can't help but fall in love with it in both the black and tan colourways. It's such a simple, classic design and shape made from 100% buffalo leather. I've seen a few eBay duplicates for example here and here but they just aren't the same! They seem too boxy, without the rounded edges so I probably won't waste my money. I just wish I could afford the £79.99 price tag as I would love for this to replace my every day oversized bag. It is payday tomorrow though...

2) Next on the wishlist is this 'beach waves' product by Frédéric Fekkai. Everywhere I've seen online is sold out, so this product was found on Amazon. This product claims to create 'surf-sexy texture' and can be used on both damp and dry hair to achieve that holiday, beach hair look on a daily basis. Now I have been searching for a 'salt spray' or 'beach waves' product for some time and have actually just purchased the Umberto Giannini Glam Hair Grunge Glamour Tousled Salt Spray (what a mouthful!) which I will probably review in the near future. This spray however is quite a bit more expensive and has countless amazing reviews online, so I may have to make a purchase if the Umberto Giannini doesn't impress me. 

3) Real Techniques brushes have been around for ages but I've surprisingly never bought any of them. This is mainly because I have plenty of make up brushes already and felt it unnecessary to change them. However after months of use, washing and wearing away they seem to be lacking the quality they used to have. I know so many people who swear by Real Techniques so I'm planning on converting sometime soon. I'm especially excited to try out the buffing brush and I will 100% purchase a separate stippling brush.

4) I'm normally not the biggest fan of River Island in general. It's just not really for me. They do however surprise me sometimes, especially for jewellery. Look how cute this bracelet is with it's miniature lion head door knockers. 

5) Ever since Topshop brought out the studded, black 'Vectra' slippers/loafers I have spent so much money on replacing them. Three pairs from Topshop as well as a couple of cheaper versions which broke within weeks. I've now given up on them and on the lookout for more substancial flat, black 'every day' kind of shoes. Whilst shopping in Manchester I came across these beauts from Zara. How nice are they?!

6) Topshop jewellery is always great, expensive but there's always more than a handful of things I want to buy whenever I go into a shop. This is the latest thing that caught my eye. I probably won't end up purchasing it because I own too many gold necklaces that I don't wear but it doesn't hurt to look!
