Luxury Wish List

Hey Lovelies, It's not lie that I like a bit of luxury every now and again. I work a lot and always put a little money aside each month (running away money!) so at the moment I don't have any spare cash to indulge in anything fancy. Every year I like to buy something nice and I haven't decided what item I'll choose this year. I may buy a designer handbag (Style and designer to be chosen!) or a nice pair of Black Louboutin's! I've still no clue yet, and it all really depends on how much Holiday pay I get if I'm honest! Anyway even though I'm taking a little break and not ready to dive straight back in, I've compiled a wish list of things I'd love to buy someday...
Christmas Wish List
I think everyone has the right to treat themselves without judgement. I know a lot of people who will roll their eyes at a €700 pair of shoes or a €1,000 handbag. A lot of people think it's extremely wasteful but ultimately it's no one's business,what someone else buys. I love even looking at things I know I couldn't afford. Like a pair of Chanel earrings or a gorgeous pair of Miu Miu sunglasses! I think Santa is going to be extremely good and give me money towards a brand new Iphone as my Iphone4 is on it's last legs! All Iphone's go downhill after two years, which is a bit ridiculous, considering how expensive they are! I'm looking to get the Gold Iphone 5s and I couldn't be more excited! I love new gadgets and I can be guaranteed to be playing with it all over Christmas! I love little luxuries like a nice perfume or a Jo Malone candle. As much as I'm a fan of Yankee Candles, Jo Malone are in a league of their own and I would happily forgo a night of drinking to have one of these babies lighting in my room. They also make fantastic gifts for any woman! Same goes for mini luxury nail polishes! You get a taste of designer luxury, and you get to test out a few nail polishes! Deborah Lipmann is probably one of the more expensive nail polish brands, and it's great, because you get a chance to test a couple of colours out. For me I only wear nail polish for a couple of weeks anyway before something else tickles my fancy so a mini-set is perfect for me, and would be a great pick me up or a lovely gift! 

I love window shopping Designer brands, and saving up all my pennies to buy just one!  :)

24 things I've Learnt in 24 Years

Today is my Birthday! I'm 24, and it literally feels like yesterday I turned 21! Twenty Three had been good to me, but I'm really looking forward to this year. I've no doubt new and exciting things will be on the horizon and I excited. My lovely and gorgeous friend Mark took me out and took the edge off turning one year older last night. The Prosecco and cocktails went down very nicely, and I'm not ashamed to say I'm not feeling great today! However with some TLC, Presents and a slap up meal in my favourite Chinese restaurant I'll recover. Getting older 'aint all bad! Last night I wore this Tutu dress from Topshop, myy much loved A|Wear Sequin Jacket and topped it all off with a statement necklace and a red lip! In honour of my 24th Birthday, I've decided to do 24 things I've Learnt in my 24 Years!
  1. Your family will love you unconditionally, and will always have your best interests at heart. 
  2. They will be this incredible support system that will fix everything from a broken heart to a broken spirit.
  3. Your friend circles will continue to grow, and new people will constantly come into your life. You'll eventually weed out the sly and awful "friends" but will be left with the best friends group of friends you could ever ask for. 
  4. Always fight for the underdog.
  5. University will teach you a lot more about life, than the actual subjects you studied.
  6. It will also teach you to cram for all your exams, pull all-nighters and how to drink shot after shot without getting sick. As well as that you'll learn that when you turn up to the wrong exam on the wrong day, the world doesn't end. A well constructed email to your professor and a large glass of wine will turn everything around. 
  7. You'll leave feeling even more confused then when you begun. but you'll be left with great memories and a lovely loyal friend who you met in one random Archaeology class.
  8. At times Life isn't fair, but you're just going to have to get over it. The sooner you learn this, the better.
  9. If people call you weight-related names, be thankful that's the only "bad" thing they can say about you!
  10. Don't follow your dreams, chase them.
  11. Your gut instinct is always right, Don't ignore it. 
  12. Own up when you've mad a mistake. You'll be far more respected than if you pass the blame on to someone else.
  13. Give people second chances. Everyone makes mistakes. However NEVER give someone a third one.
  14. Not everyone is going to like you, and that''s okay.
  15. Don't obsess over what people think of you, it's unhealthy. The people that love and support you won't ever judge you, even when you've done something incredibly foolish/embarrassing.
  16. Don't cut your hair yourself. It's stupid, and you'll end up looking like a mushroom.
  17. Don't ever settle for second best and It's okay to turn things down. People will think you're crazy but you know what's the best choice for you. 
  18. Success doesn't come easily and you'll fail more than once and probably more than twice too.
  19. Be kind to people. The people who aren't kind themselves, need your kindness the most. 
  20. Value and Nurture your friends, they're there for life, and you've got a good bunch there.
  21. Forgive AND forget. Holding onto anger is like drinking poison and expecting the other person to die. 
  22. Don't judge anyone before you've gotten to know them. You've been proven wrong about people and now have the pleasure of calling them my friends.
  23. Cherish times with your grandparents, they won't be around forever. Same goes for your parents. They both do a lot for you.
  24. Stand up for yourself, your beliefs and your friends and let no one tell you, you're anything other than fucking fabulous.
