Currently Craving: June 2017

My Currently Craving Wish List For June! Can you believe another month has come and gone so fast yet again? It’s madness for me to think that I was putting together my Currently Craving Wish List a whole month ago, when it feels like last week. June has definitely been a very busy month, for both work, health, and holiday, so I am excited to see what July brings. I did mention to you that I am still on a shopping ban (excludes gifts), which I have been on since the 20th May and I still haven’t broken yet. However, that never stops me craving items all the time and browsing online to see what’s new! As I always do for my wish lists, I round up my favourite items of the month to share with you. Usually I do this in a collage, but I have a better way of doing it this time which is much more interactive and easier for you to use. So the items I have chosen are listed below in two columns, and all you have to do is click them. Once you click the item, it will open a new window and take you to the retailer to purchase it, so no more corresponding numbers below! I find it’s much quicker and efficient, for us both, and I’ve put a description beneath each product for you too, so you can know what it is before clicking. Usually before I would only have the interactive photographs, so now I am excited that the entire post is interactive and clickable! Now when it comes to…

Currently Craving: May 2017

0 | 1 | 2 | 3 | 4 | 5 | 6 | 7 | 8 | 9 | 10 Unfortunately I haven’t been feeling very well lately and have found out some overwhelming information about my health that I need to work on fixing, and with that, my brain isn’t fully where it needs to be for writing a big post at the moment, but I wanted to share with you my Currently Craving Wish List for May. As the sun was shining all weekend and it was just like summer, my wish list is very summery indeed. I’ve included denim shorts, jeans, hats, sunglasses, espadrilles, bags, lip gloss and even a glow in the dark Cambridge Satchel, which I thought was really cool. I can imagine it for festivals at night. I’m loving everything here though, I really need those embroidered shorts, the espadrilles, the hat and the sunglasses! Happy Summer everyone! Tell me what items you love.

Currently Craving: March

0 | 1 | 2 | 3 | 4 | 5 | 6 | 7 | 8 | 9 | 10 I can’t believe that another month has come and gone, meaning March is now officially over. I’m extremely excited that we are now in Spring and that April brings with it some warmer weather (despite needing to wear my fashionable rain clothes!) and that means I’m feeling a little more optimistic with my choices for this months Currently Craving Wish List! So, lets see what I chose. First up is a gorgeous floral dress from Adrianna Papell that would just be perfect for going to events. Next is a Tangle Teezer in bright pink as there’s nothing worse than knotted hair, trust me, I’m an expert on that. Then there’s this truly amazing Somerset trench coat from Reiss. I’m fairly new to the brand and recently acquired some of their pieces, and this trench coat is hands down the best one I have ever tried! You will definitely be seeing it in an outfit post in a couple of days time, so keep an eye out for that, I’m sure you will love it! Moving on to something different, a printed t-shirt isn’t something I have worn in a long time, so I thought this lace up tiger t-shirt dress might be a fun option for casual days. It’s long enough to wear with trainers/sneakers, which is great. Then we all know how much I love cacti, so that cacti dress is so cute! Then, there’s another piece from Reiss, it’s the Venn longline blazer in Off White. I…

Currently Craving: February

0 | 1 | 2 | 3 | 4 | 5 | 6 | 7 | 8 | 9 | 10 The end of February is here and I can’t believe that it’s March tomorrow. Seriously, where has the time gone? It’s truly gone by so fast as it doesn’t feel like that long ago it was Christmas. But with every end to a month means it’s time for my Currently Craving Wish List! This February has got me craving some interesting things actually, some which are a bit more unusual to my personal taste, but I think my personality is changing again and I’m gravitating towards different things now. So what’s on my list? I’m sure you spotted the Gucci GG Belt up there! I’ve been eyeing this pretty belt on so many fashion bloggers on Instagram and I can’t get enough of it. I’m not a belt person, especially not if they’re quite thick and chunky, but this one in tan has had me weak at the knees. It’s on back order at the moment, but I might have already ordered it. I wasn’t sure if I wanted black or brown, but decided on brown, so we will see when it arrives. I would recommend ordering it now if you want it too, it’s hard to get hold of. I also chose their silver fox ring with amethyst eyes to lust after as it’s so cute! Since we’re in the designer section at the moment, that Saint Laurent Nano Sac de Jour Bag in Grey has been calling my name since Christmas. The grey is that perfect shade…

Currently Craving Wish List: January

1 | 2 | 3 | 4 | 5 | 6 | 7 | 8 | 9 | 10 | 11 | 12 As it’s the new year and we have already made our new years resolutions and created our wish lists for 2017, I thought it was a good idea to leave this wish list post until the end of the month so that my cravings are very much cemented in. I did vow to be good this year with my spending, as most of us do every single year, but that almost seems impossible with the amount of cute and gorgeous pieces coming out right now! There’s three designer bags that I want to buy this year, which I’m limiting myself to for the entire year.  In no particular order, the first one being the Balenciaga Mini City in Brown Suede, which would go with everything! Second is the Louis Vuitton LockMe Backpack, how cute is that? Then lastly, a Valentino Lock Bag which I have wanted for almost a year, from Farfetch, with a possible hint of a Celine Box Bag in there towards the end of the year. While saving up for these beautiful bags though, it never stops me wanting other pieces, especially when it comes to denim and clothing in general. I can never get enough of the new season trends and am always excited to put together new outfits to share with you all here on my fashion blog. I don’t even need to tell you how bad the weather has been here in the UK lately, but with the constant layering up…

Lorna Raindrops Christmas Gift Guide 2016

My Novelty, Fun & Useful Christmas Gift Guide It’s Christmas in literally 15 days! I can’t believe how fast this year has gone, can you? It felt like a few months ago I was writing my 2015 Christmas Gift Guide, when in actual fact a whole 12 months have gone by… Where does the time go? So much has changed for me in that year, but that’s being saved for my New Years blog post that I’m planning, like I do every year. This post is all about my choices for presents! I’ve selected only 16 women’s items and 10 men’s items as I’m keeping this gift guide smaller this year. I know everyone is probably sick of them and I didn’t want to waste a huge amount of time putting an ultimate gift guide together, like I did last year, so I’m keeping it short and sweet! You may see that this gift guide of mine is entirely different to previous ones and currently craving wish lists, purely because I didn’t see any sense in putting in expensive items of clothing, or designer bags and shoes, as those are rarely ever purchased as gifts for anyone and more for ourselves. I’ve chosen actual gifts and the majority of them are on sale right now and are under £30! Just like that Paperchase Pink Christmas Tree (above), I think these are actual gifts that people would like to get on Christmas day! Some are novelty, some are useful, some are pretty, and some are unique, but they would definitely be ideal stocking fillers or extra little gifts to fill up…

Currently Craving: November

1 | 2 | 3 | 4 | 5 | 6 | 7 | 8 | 9 | 10 It’s crazy to think that this is my last Currently Craving Wish List of the year now! I know you might be thinking, what about December? But I usually do my Christmas Gift Guide then instead. So here it is, my November Wish List to share with you. It may possibly be filled with velvet, suede, knitwear, and cute bags, but there’s also a charm, a pair of jeans, and some sunglasses like these Ray-Ban Erika in Havana, which will be great for the start of spring or summer. Since it’s raining constantly too, I was thinking of a new umbrella and this Lulu Guinness Cut Out Lips Kensington Umbrella is kind of perfect, isn’t it? How cute! There’s some amazing winter accessories at House of Fraser at the moment, which is where I found that one. I already have two Burberry Thomas Bear Charms, one in Pink and one in Plum, so I thought a Cornflower Blue might be ideal as it would match Adam’s Burberry Scarf in Cornflower Blue that I bought him as a birthday and Christmas present. I’m completely in love with the pewter metallic on the Balenciaga and the rich burgundy velvet on the Rebecca Minkoff, plus I’ve never been able to get those Stuart Weitzman Boots out of my head either, I am desperate for them! There’s two ALLSAINTS jumpers there that might be in the male to me already as there’s 30% off right now, and finally, those McGuire Jeans. So cool! ALLSAINTS Hawley…

Creating My Perfect Wish Lists With Shoptagr

As it’s sale season coming up, that can only mean one thing – us fashion addicts are making lists of the items we love and hope to buy when the prices are chopped. It’s Black Friday at the end of this month and all of us know that means there will be price slashes all over the internet, so keeping track of those items you loved, by checking your list you keep in your email drafts or sorting through your browsers bookmarks, isn’t always the most productive way to do it. I was recently introduced to a company called Shoptagr and I’m so excited by their concept, it’s amazing to collaborate with them! You all know that I only share things with you here when I love them myself and think they’re great, so you can rest assured this one is. Shoptagr is a completely free service that let’s you save and track your favourite fashion items, right down to size and color, in one place which will then alert you once the price drops (including coupon codes), or when it comes back in stock! How amazing is that? This is both for your web browser and in app form, so you don’t miss out. I’ve been using Shoptagr myself for a little while and have my own list (which you can see here) as you can even share your wish lists with anyone you want to, via a direct link or on social media. That might make it easier for people who want to buy you a gift for the holidays, that’s for sure. I’ve included a step by…
