A Spring Wishlist

Like most people, I'm currently watching what I'm spending my money on and prioritising the essentials, especially as I'm self-employed via blogging and everything's gone pretty quiet and I'm not going to lie, it's pretty scary. I also don't know where I stand with brands/companies who owe me money and if I'm going to be paid on time/at all, given what's going on right now. So I thought instead of spending money I technically don't have right now, I'd do a Spring Wishlist and show you what I've got my eyes on. However, if and when I get paid/get more work in, I'm definitely going to be picking up a few things on this list. April is also my birthday month so I think comfort shopping + my birthday is a good excuse to treat myself (hopefully in the very near future!). 

ASOS Curve Sweet Tooth Pyjama Shorts £10  / REN Perfect Canvas Clean Jelly Oil Cleanser £25Joanie Bobby Dream Lover Slogan Tee £22  / Too Faced Born This Way Turn Up the Light Skin-Centric Highlighting Palette - Fair to Light £34

First up is some cute AF pyjamas shorts from ASOS which have lollies and all sorts of other sweets allover. I really like ASOS pyjama shorts, they fit nicely and the elasticated waistbands never dig in my stomach and set off my stomach/pelvic pain like some other brands pyjamas do. Next is the REN Jelly Oil Cleanser which I've had my eyes on since it was released back in January (I think it was January anyway?). I find the concept and formula really intriguing and I also like that REN's packaging is all recyclable and that you can use it on bare skin or you can use It to remove your makeup. My wardrobe is basically being taken over by clothes from Joanie and I don't think the obsession is going to stop anytime soon if I'm being honest. Although I'm trying to stop buying as many stripe t-shirts, I really like the Dream Lover slogan tee. It'd look nice paired with an oversized cardigan and leggings/jeans or underneath a pinafore dress. I can definitely see myself buying this tee v soon. I also love the look of Too Faced's latest highlighter release. The palette comes with three highlighters which go from a natural sheen, a middle glowy highlighter and a super in-your-face kind of highlight. 

Daisy Street Plus Crop Sweatshirt with Dolphin Graphic £19.99 / FOREO Luna 3 Cleansing Brush £169Joanie Joyce Daisy Print Frill Wrap Dress £45 / Revolution Pro CC Cream Perfecting Foundation SPF30 £10

I also really like the look of the Daisy Street Sweatshirt, although I'm not a fan of it being cropped as I prefer a normal length sweatshirt that covers all my lumps and bumps. But I think the vintage-looking design is cute and it'd be a nice comfy sweatshirt to wear around the house. I'm very intrigued about trying a FOREO cleansing brush and comparing one to other "dupe" kind of cleansing brushes I have. I have seen some good results on instagram/youtube when people have consistently used a FOREO brush to cleanse their skin every day and I'm just interested to see if using one would help with my skin. Another piece from Joanie I really like the look of is the Joyce Daisy Print Frill Wrap Dress which is new in. It's so pretty! They also have a jumpsuit with the same daisy print design which is cute but I don't think jumpsuits suit me personally. I think we all know what the new Revolution Pro CC Cream Perfecting Foundation is trying to be, right? I'm definitely intrigued and want to try it, although I still wouldn't give up on my It Cosmetics Your Skin But Better CC Cream because it's my go-to base and has been for almost two years now and it's saved me from being super self-conscious when my skin isn't looking so great so many times. I have tried a couple of the wannabe IT CC creams and none of them have blown me away.

Boohoo Waffle Knit Cardigan £18 Ole Henriksen Cold Plunge Pore Mask £30 / Boohoo Fit Side Stripe Running Legging £15 / Drunk Elephant Nice To Meet You Set £19

I've come to realise that a lot of my comfy cardigans look a bit well-worn now, even after getting a Minky bobble remover on them lol. So I've been on the lookout for a couple of new cardigans that aren't too thick nor too thin and I really like the Waffle Knit one from Boohoo. Although it does seem to have shot up in price within a week because it was £12 when I first came across it (hmm). I'm still yet to try anything from Ole Henriksen but if and when I do purchase something from them, it's 100% going to be the Cold Plunge Pore Mask. It sounds so nice and I know Emma's Rectangle swears by it and says it's one of her fave masks and her skin always looks nice! I'm not going to lie, I'm a bit bored of wearing standard black leggings so I'm thinking of picking up some leggings with stripes down the side just to change things up a little. I know it's not very exciting but it's still a little refresh I guess. I'm also really intrigued to try some products from Drunk Elephant and the Nice To Meet You Set from Cult Beauty contains three mini's which are the Protini Polypeptide Cream (15ml), Slaai Makeup-Melting Butter Cleanser (22g) and the Bamboo Booster which comes in a little sachet. I just want to see what they're about and if their products are really worth the money. I am interested in a few other products from DE but I'll talk about those in another blog post soon.

Nuthing Pink Shimmer Hair Removal Jelly £9.99 ASOS Curve V-Neck Linen Mix T-shirt in Charcoal Stripe £14Sunday Riley U.F.O. Ultra-Clarifying Face Oil £34 / REN Overnight Glow Dark Spot Sleeping Cream £49

I've seen a few fellow bloggers receive/talk about Nuthing on their Instagram and/or blogs recently and I'm definitely interested in giving them a whirl. This is TMI but since I switched my pill last year, my leg hair and underarm hair grows so fast! It's such a pain in the arse to keep on top of. I also like the fact that they are vegan-friendly too. The ASOS V-Neck Linen Mix T-shirt looks super comfy and perfect for lounging around the house, which let's face it, it looks like we're all going to be stuck in the house for a while longer yet and I'm not really into loungewear sets, I'm more of a comfy oversized tee and leggings/pyjamas kinda girl. Another cult skincare brand that I'm still yet to try anything from is Sunday Riley. I have been shying away from using oils since the end of last year, but I've just started to use a Dermalogica oil recently and I'm enjoying using it and I feel like I'm seeing good results. So I'm interested in trying out a few different oils in the upcoming months and I like that the U.F.O. oil is clarifying. Lastly is another product from REN which is actually their latest release. It's their Overnight Glow Dark Spot Sleeping Cream and I've seen some before and after photos of people using this and I'm really impressed. I feel like it would work well at getting rid of acne scarring on my forehead and cheeks and just even out my complexion nicely whilst obviously moisturising my skin at night.
