My 21st Birthday Wishlist //

an image of my 21st birthday wishlist
For those of you who don't know I turn 21 on July 15th. Turning 20 mortified me last year but I've finally come round to the thought of entering my 20's, I put far too much pressure on myself to be in a certain stage or place in life. I'm also not entirely sure how this years birthday will turn out, the past few weeks have been incredibly tough for the family & I just hope we can all enjoy the day. *OH and because there's always that one person on social media...I don't expect a single item come July 15th..I'll probably repeat that a million times in the post just to be clear ;).*

The most unrealistic item to appear on my wish-list would be a beautiful Fiat 500 which obviously will not be happening...especially as I still haven't passed yet. I keep getting stalked by Fiat 500's, especially if I've had a bad lesson riddled with anxiety. I adore the mint Fiat 500's, along with a beautiful navy with tan roof. There's also a gorgeous grey convertible one on sale nearby...breaking my heart being a total klutz when it comes to learning to drive. Oh to go with said car it'd need some Radley accessories in the form of their adorable keyring. and another unrealistic in the bottom right....miniature dachshund puppy.

No birthday is complete without treating myself to a stash of Lush products and a new perfume, 21 being the perfect age for a new signature scent. I've been wearing EL's Modern Muse a lot recently along with my beloved Narciso Rodriguez For Her EDT. This morning I received part of the Summer Sensationail collection which features pastel shades, including a cornflower blue named Intriguing Iris that I would love to get my hands on. Other beauty items include one of the many GHD Curlers because I'm so boring with my hair, a new Naked 1 palette as many shades are almost used up along with Nars Sheer Glow foundation. Another perfume I've heard a lot  about has been the Roger & Gallet Fleur de Figuier, I loved the body products in this scent. My last beauty item would be more Real Techniques can never have enough.

Back to the other crazier items with a camera upgrade to the 700D, a Macbook Pro upgrade because I've used this white Macbook forever - he deserves to retire peacefully. Poor Macintosh sounds like a aeroplane at times. I'm still a huge fan of the Frends rose gold headphones along with a new iPhone 6 case as mine just seem to break without being dropped. Ted Baker have beautiful floral cases but it's the plain white/pink, flip cases with a mirror inside that's caught my eye. Who else has a birthday coming up? Perhaps we share a birthday? I'd love to hear whats on your wish-list.

  3. The mint Fiat 500 is my dream car and also stalks me. I too need to learn to drive before I dream about cars, they will probably be extinct before I pass!

    I hated turning 20 but didn't mind 21 so much. Surprisingly I loved turning 30, I do wonder if that is because I am in such a better place now that I'm 30 what with a house, husband a baby! A lot has changed since my early 20s!

    I hope you have a lovely 21st and get the more realistic items in your wishlist!

  4. Thank you for your lovely message Leanne. I'm hoping tomorrow goes to plan, I even have a lesson on the day. I just need to chill and take everything at my own pace, I don't need to be in set places and to have completed so much by now!

  5. I love doing posts like these! Hope you had a great birthday and enjoyed it. I loved turning 21! If you didn't get the real techniques set you should treat yourself. I have it and love it!!
