The return of the wishlist- featuring the lip colour the beauty world is in love with..

I have not compiled a wish list for sooo long partly because we are saving for a trip back to Scotland for Christmas which means all unecessary spending is on hold.  SO quite frankly I'm too scared to look.  But whilst I was perusing for a certain big sisters birthday I came across too many cute things not to do some window shopping so I thought I would share! Ps this post does contain affiliate links (i.e. if you buy via my site you add some pennies to my piggy bank) and a featured product was gifted to me for my review (clearly I wouldn't be wearing it if it wasn't gorgeous though so there you go).  Enjoy the lustworthiness...

Sugar Skull Pendant and Earrings by July-Umph Originals, I was lucky enough to have this set gifted to me and I have been wearing it for a few months now.  It came packaged beautifully and has just the right amount of quirk for me.  Pop by their website for a look at all of their stuff there's some really interesting pieces I particularly love the new character Henri The French cute!  What I also love about these sets is that the quality of the product the resin on stainless steel combo makes these pieces really durable and I've had no skin reactions which is great (as I have a tendency to react to a lot of materials) which makes them perfect for the sensitive skinned jewellery lover.  I'm also lusting after the statement 'Swallow & Diamond' necklace  because a little part of me would love to be a tattoo rebel gal with a chest piece.  Quite frankly I think I would be disowned and would pass out from the pain so something like this would be a good stand in! They also deliver worldwide for a tiny fee which is even better.

I haven't worn a watch for ages.  I've asked for and been bought a few over the years but I never seem to get into the habit of wearing one.  When the kids were littler and I didn't really have anywhere I needed to be I quite liked being without time.  Now however I have lots of places to be and be on time so it may well be time to wear a watch.  I stumbled upon these little beauties on the treasure trove of Not On The Highstreet (I can spend literally hours on here) if you don't know it it's a lovely friendly little corner or the internet all made up of small businesses.  I just love the story behind the website and love that they support small business as that is their roots as well (kitchen table business) in fact I really want the Build A Business from your Kitchen Table written by the Sophie Cornish.  Anyway back to the watch, The Monogram Initial Scallop Watch by Ellie Ellie, how gorgeous is this.  I love letters and anything typography so this is a dream, don't ask me what colour though as I love them all they even have my new colour crush for leather at the moment, French navy.  Although I've never ordered anything from Ellie Ellie (yet) all of the others sellers on Not on the Highstreet have been amazing and saved me a million times in being able to send gorgeous unique gifts to my friends and family back home. LOVE.

I am loving cut out's right now so jumpers with cut out shoulders, boots with cut out heels, hair with undercuts (although Vogue says its out...whatever!) well I've been considering my christmas wardrobe (I know it's early but I like to be prepared) anyway I have quite fallen in love with this little number from River Island, a maroon cut out playsuit perfect with opaque and ankle boots and maybe even a floppy hat.   Love the colour.  And the cut out details make it perfect tran-seasonal wear.  Yes please.  May have to team with a full length faux fur number...I think I may be seeing the Scottish winter with a in a slightly romantic light!

Well I wouldn't be Amy without a make up 'purchase' would I? So here's my make up lustworthy product and I tried it today on a little in-person window shop session I had and I loved it!  It's a new red (although I am still faithful to my beloved MAC Russian Red) this is really lovely and new The Estee Lauder Kendall Jenner Pure Color Envy Matt Sculpting Lipstick in Relentless (what a mouthful!) Really pigmented colour but make sure you have scrubbed and well moisturised lips in advance as it is a Matt finish although is surprisingly moisturising!

What have you been listing after at the moment?  And did you check out that wee French bulldog, how cute is he?! Bonjour!
