Current Wishlist - Beauty, Books & Home

I do love a wishlist. It's not been too long since my last one but that was clothes so I think it's about time for another with a mix of all of the things I'm currently lusting over!
My Current Wishlist - Beauty, Books & Home


The first thing I'm keen to get my hands on is the Asos Travel Essentials Box. At £12 this is an absolute bargain! There are lots of fab products included such as a mini Too Faced Better Than Sex Mascara, Emma Hardie Brilliance Facial Oil, Glamglow ThirstyMud Mask and more. These are all massive brands and ones I'd never be able to afford so this is such a great way of being able to try some of the products out. Next the Too Faced Melted Matte Lipstick has recently caught my eye in the shade Child Star. It's £19 so I'm extremely unlikely to ever buy it but I love the colour of it and it's exactly the sort I go for. Now for nail polish as I clearly need more to add to my collection. Essie are one of my go to brands and I actually never knew Asos had such a huge range of their polishes. I love the shades Angora Cardi which is a beautiful dusty rose, and Merino Cool which is a chic mauve nude. The final few beauty bits I'm interested to try are the Beauty Extras Foot Mask and Hair Mask. I recently tried a foot mask I picked up from Sephora in Paris and I loved it so I'm glad I've finally found somewhere here that does them too.

I have got so many books in my Amazon basket at the moment! I'm trying to avoid buying them as I have absolutely nowhere to store anymore but I don't think one or two would be too bad!

Pictures of Lily - After loving Five Years From Now by Paige Toon I've been looking at some of her other books and this the one currently at the top of my list. 'Ten years ago when Lily was just sixteen, she fell in love with someone she really should't have fallen in love with. Now, living in Sydney and engaged to another man, she can't forget the one that got away. Then her past comes back to haunt her, and she has to make a decision that will break her heart - and the heart of at least one of the men who love her.'

I've Got Your Number - Sophie Kinsella has been a favourite of mine for a long time so I'm desperate to pick some of her newer books up. 'A couple of glasses of bubbly with the girls and Poppy's life has gone into meltdown. Not only has she lost her engagement ring, but in the panic that followed, she's lost her phone too. When she spots an abandoned phone in a bin it seems it was meant to be... Finders Keepers! Except the phone's owner, elusive businessman Sam Roxton, doesn't agree. He wants his phone back, and doesn't appreciate Poppy reading all his messages and wading into his personal life. Can things get any more tangled?'

An Unwanted Guest - This is quite different to the other books I've already mentioned but after really enjoying a few thriller type books over the last month, I've started looking for others a bit similar and this one has such good reviews. 'We can't choose the strangers we meet. As the guests arrive at beautiful, remote Mitchell's Inn, they're all looking forward to a relaxing weekend deep in the forest, miles from anywhere. They watch their fellow guests with interest, from a polite distance. With a violent storm raging, the group finds itself completely cut off from the outside world. Nobody can get in - or out. And then the first body is found... and the horrifying truth comes to light. There's a killer among them - and nowhere to run.'

We've just re-decorated the bathroom so I'm after a few bits to really complete it all. I can't believe how long it's taken us to get it sorted but it looks so much better now! A bit of a boring purchase but I really want to get some storage baskets and I love these silver wire ones. I love things like this for keeping my bath bombs and shower gels in. Also for the bathroom I love the look of these tumblers and soap dispensers. They have such a pretty copper design on them and I think they'd go so well. Now for the living room because I'm going through a real 'I hate everything' phase with it. I'm longing for Autumn now so I really want to get some mustard/yellow coloured bits in to just add something a little different. I'd love some new cushions like these velvet ones from Asda for the sofas. Also we have a little dish on the coffee table with pot pourri in and whilst I love it, we've had it for ages and it just doesn't look as good as it used to. I love this copper-toned hammered dish to replace it and it's only £5. I've been having a little browse recently on New Look as they're homeware just gets better and better, and one thing I'm always drawn to is their mugs. I really want to start replacing some of the ones we already have and have a bit of a mix rather than a set and I love this turquoise tile print one. I love the design of it and it also comes in a few other colours too. Something else that caught my eye is this black tile plate which might seem a bit random but I've been wanting something like this for ages for blog photos. I've taken a few recently where I've really needed something pretty like this so I'm definitely going to try and grab this whilst I can.Homeware from Asda and New Look including Cushions, Bathroom Accessories and Mugs
I'm aware this blog post is quite long but it's been a while since I last did a random wishlist like this so there was loads I wanted to include!

Have you picked up any of the things I mentioned?
