Wishlist Wednesday!

This is what happens after Christmas. You start wishlisting because your finances aren't good enough to justify spending on frivolous things. Making a wish list totally curbs that for me... sort of. Here's what I've been eying lately.




1. After seeing this gorgeous lip gloss on Jessica from Getting Cheeky, I was smitten. Burberry's new spring line includes Mallow Pink, a gorgeous strawberry pink gloss which is bound to brighten your face. I want.

2. The ongoing search for the perfect nude continues and Armani has me eying their new spring collection lipsticks. Their Sheer Lipstick range has been on my list to try for a long time, and their shade #101 for Spring 2013 looks like it would suit the nude lips look I'm looking for. Unfortunately, no counters are near where I live, and my best bet is Nordstroms online which charges ridiculous shipping prices to Canada. Oh well, that's why it's called a wishlist!

3. With all the gorgeous fashion offerings for Spring 2013, my wishlist clothing item is a cozy sweater from J Crew. Why? Because it's friggin cold out here! It's currently -33C (-27.4F) and will be -37C (-34.6F) overnight. Oh Canada, I love you and all, but please tone it down. Now I'm sure you understand why sweaters are all I think of.

4. Beauty bloggers are raving all over the internet about Diptyque candles. I only wishlisted what I thought I might like the smell of, and I like lavender, but it's hard to tell what Feu de Bois smells like, or Figuier, or Vervene, or Muguet. I'm sure they are all smell wonderful, but at $60 a candle, I'm afraid they'll be staying on the wishlist for a long long time.

5. Ahhh, Rebecca Minkoff. While I already own a few of her bags, I have been seriously wishing for a smaller black bag for evenings out. The MAC mini seems to be absolutely perfect for this purpose - small, classic and black. Hopefully it will come off the wishlist in 2013!

6. Speaking of something coming off the wishlist, these gorgeous Rag & Bone Harrow booties never ever will. At $495, higher than what I pay in rent, the price of these is absolutely ridiculous. Still, I can't help but admire these. I love the details of these booties - the cap toe, the not-too-obvious straps, the dark wooden heel. But seriously, my feet aren't even worth that price!

7. After Best Things in Beauty reviewed this Chantecaille palette, it has lingered in my mind ever since. The palette is a work of art! And even better, looking at the swatches from the review, the shadows are stunning. LOVE!

What have you been wishlisting lately?

  2. I've been avoiding stores lately but I'm dying for new sweaters too. I thought -22 was bad enough but -33 is just pure brutal :(

    1. Ugh tell me about it. It's been so cold. I've had to wear tights under my pants to go to work.

  3. Thank you for the shout out my dear! I will proudly assert that Mallow Pink is a worthwhile investment from the spring collections.

  4. The Burberry gloss and Chantecaille palette both look gorgeous! Tom Ford's Crushed Amethyst palette is currently on my wishlist along with a few other goodies from the Chanel spring collection. Think I might have to add Mallow Pink to my list too!

    1. Oh Tom Ford is just brilliant isn't he? I wish I could get everything he's ever produced. Those all sound like great wishlist items - I'm curious about the Chanel Spring collection too!

  5. they do have mini diptyque candles that are $28-30 if that helps! I know Nordstrom even has a sampler set of 3... But ya, no diptyque scents have enticed me to shell out that money EXCEPT the newly released Rose Duet!! I got the pink sweet pea lip glow, but I'm really tempted to buy all the others too, lol! I keep thinking i want a rebecca minkoff mac mini, but i can't decide between a normal shade like gray or a hot pink one! lol.

  6. Ohh it would be so nice if just making a wishlist made all my desperate makeup dreams go away! LOL I'm loving this wishlist of yours though Annick, I can totally get behind most of these items! The Diptyque candles have been on mine for ages too but not sure when I'll be able to justify a $60 candle :( Also, not to enable you too much lol, but you can order Giorgio Armani stuff from Holt Renfrew you know! I got my Burberry stuff last year that way. They charge $15 shipping but I think if you spend enough (yikes!) they'll waive it. Just a thought :D

    1. I just shot them an email a few days ago asking what the process was... I really want to get that gloss! Perhaps I'll just call the store and see if they can send me some Burberry. Thanks for the heads up!! :)

  7. I got some cute suede booties cheap at Kohl's that scratched my itch for cute winter footwear. I have so many nail polish wishes I can't even list them all. :)
