September has almost come and gone, which is crazy, and we are fully in Autumn now, which I love. As always, towards the end of the month, I create my Currently Craving Wish List and I include the items I am loving and obsessing over at the moment. When it gets to this type of weather though, narrowing down my selection is almost impossible as there’s so many things I want! I’ve already been on a small shopping spree at Victoria Secret and Topshop, stocking up on some amazing new items (which you saw on my Instagram – it’s in the outfit highlight at the end if you missed it) and most of you loved the new pieces. Number 4 and 10 are two items I got – obsessed! There’s numerous other pieces on my wish list too that I ‘need’, but hopefully in time! I can never include everything in one post, there’s just too much in September, ha ha.
First up, two little adorable earrings from Zoe Chicco which I think are just perfect! I’m into gold jewellery at the moment and can’t get enough of things like this. Next up (at 3, 5 and 9) is make-up, I’ve heard amazing things about Laura Mercier and I’ve been sampling a few of them, trying to decide between liquid or pressed powder as I’m usually a powder girl, but the liquid seems to be amazing from the sample I have and I’m in need of new foundation, so we will see. The skirt, as I mentioned, is literally adorable. It’s got a Clueless vibe to it, but it’s much more modern and flattering and looks amazing with cropped knits as you saw on Instagram.
At number 6 I have included a fantastic mixer as I’m into my baking a lot lately, as you know, but mixing cake mixture myself is something I struggle hugely with, even with an electric whisk, so I am in desperate need of a mixer like this! Then getting to the physiotherapy and health related side of me, I’ve ordered a Yoga mat (7) as I never had one, and I’ve also ordered those leggings (12) as they look perfect for me and are super soft. At number 10 and 13 is new borg style jackets from Topshop and the denim one is one I already own, which is incredible – honestly. It may look weird and so many of you voted no to it, but when it’s worn, it’s super cute! Then finally, that Alexander Wang bag in fuchsia velvet? I don’t even have words to describe that beauty. It’s just everything I love in one.
Carrying on with the health that I’m really getting on top of at the moment, I’ve seen a lot of spa day deals and I’m always tempted. I know I mentioned it before a while ago, but I often find it hard to relax and de-stress, plus with the anxiety I find it hard to be close to someone I don’t know, but I’ve been thinking more and more about how nice it would be to have some relaxing treatments, especially if they’re massage and facial related as I would really enjoy that. Champneys seem to have some of the best places, especially as they’re located in grounds with lots of woodland and nature, which seems ideal. Have any of you ever been on a spa break? What was your experience?
