Currently Craving Wish List: June 2019

I know I usually do my Currently Craving Wish Lists around three quarters of the way through the month, or near the end, but I’m doing it early this month as I’m actually taking a full week off very soon! I’m having a much needed holiday next week and I’m really excited! Usually I would plan all of my content in advance and schedule it to go out over the duration of me being away, however I have found that stressful and counter productive, simply because I’m not here to reply to your comments and interact with you all about the content, so I will just wait until I’m back. Don’t worry though, I have two more blog posts going live after this one, so I’m not going away just yet and there will of course still be new content for you this week! Anyway, getting to my wish list for June, there’s numerous pieces I’ve included on here that I’ve actually purchased and adore! Plus, since they’re cheaper, they’re so affordable for everyone! You might remember that last year I was living in my playsuits because it was so hot all the time, and my H&M ones were the options I loved the most. With that in mind, I have purchased a few different patterns from H&M and absolutely am obsessed! I’ve got the black roses, the blue floral, the leopard print, the yellow lemons and more! I cannot wait to wear them! There’s so many cute styles and versions in my list though, so if you’re a playsuit fan, you can’t go wrong! I’ve also picked up a…

Currently Craving Wish List: May 2019

What I’m Craving This Month As May is coming to an end, it means it’s time to round up my favourite items again that I’m currently craving this month! I really enjoy doing these blog posts as it means I don’t just have to lust after the pieces alone and I can actually share them with you, which feels so much better! I’ve done the selection in two look books, featuring clothes in the first one, and accessories in the second! Honestly there’s so many pieces that I want right now that I couldn’t fit them all into one!     So in this look book above, you will find 25 items of clothing and I love all of them! I’ve featured two new Allsaints Dalby jackets and this time they are in muted warm suede shades, which I’m obsessing over! I think I need to go and check those out in store on the weekend! There’s three different plaid/checked blazers that I’ve selected from Mango, again, I’ve fallen hard for those! I can just picture how I’d like to dress them up. There’s also another piece which is a bit more unusual for me, and it’s a green satin dress, but it looks lovely! I’ve opted to include some casual pieces like a knitted vest, some striped culotte trousers, a simple tee, and some gorgeous pairs of jeans! There’s a Flamingo pair that I think are just so cute, as well as a light blue. I’ve also gone with a cropped, printed shirt from Allsaints, along with a playsuit from the brand too. I can never get enough of…

Currently Craving Wish List: April 2019

I feel like I’m forever saying this, but where did this month go? It’s almost the end and we’re at my Currently Craving Wish List monthly feature again! There’s so many pieces that I have been coveting lately and I have compiled them all together into the look book feature again for you. As always, you know how to shop it, just scroll left or right to see the items and you click them to purchase. First up though, before we get to the look book, I love this gorgeous gold necklace from Aurate New York. It’s a circle in rose gold and I love how these style necklaces resemble eternity as the ring, much like a wedding ring, is never ending. It’s solid gold and very dainty, and since I’m into small necklaces now, it’s elegant and perfect! What do you think of it? You can buy the exact piece here.     Now getting to the look book, there’s 24 pieces here for you to choose from and I’ve made sure that they’re all Spring/Summer appropriate so you can’t go wrong. Again, like last time, I’ve included some options from Mango as I’m really loving their collection this season. So first up you will find a subtle pinstripe linen blazer (which I need to buy) and a sleeveless tailored jacket in the same stone colour. There’s a beautiful scarf, a floral halter top (again, I need this) and a pair of L’AGENCE Margot jeans in a light blue which I have been craving. There’s a few great necklaces in there too, a wicker shell bag, which is so…

Currently Craving Wish List: March 2019

My Currently Craving Wish List for this month is here! I know a lot of you look forward to these and wonder what items I’m going to be sharing, so I wont waste too much time on an introduction. In the slider look book below, I’ve featured 14 different clothing items and I am obsessing over all of them. Most of them are actually from Mango as I’m having a bit of a love affair with them at the moment, since I did quite a big shopping spree there last week. I’ve included most of the items I got, as well as some others which I think are beautiful. The trench coat above is Mango too, but the XS was a bit big on me unfortunately so it didn’t work out, but it doesn’t stop me admiring it! I cannot wait for the warmer weather to start wearing these pieces! I also included two pairs of jeans, one was from Ksubi, which I find is a brand that never gets enough attention! The other pair is from MOTHER, and they look really cute. I also opted to choose a cute little bag from Loeffler Randall and the reason was because it’s called ‘Lorna’ ha ha! Rarely I find items that share the same name as me, so I thought that was quite cool. Most of all though, fashion wise, I am obsessed with my new pieces. I did also pick up this Urban Outfitters dress when I was in Cardiff on Friday, but I will share more of that next month in my life update for April!     Just…

Currently Craving Wish List: January 2019

1 | 2 | 3 | 4 | 5 | 6 | 7 | 8 | 9 | 10 | 11 My Currently Craving round up posts are something I look forward to doing near the end of every month! There’s always items that I see and want as the weeks go by, so I make sure that I save them for this blog post and can share them with all of you. My tastes and likes have changed yet again and I’m currently really feeling various different items, mostly that I haven’t worn in ages, or that I was never that much of a fan of to begin with, but it’s funny how our opinions change over time isn’t it? I’m not surprised though since our cells turnover every month, we eventually become a brand new person so it makes sense that our likes and dislikes grow with us. So, let me get to the list! At number 1 is a Valentino studded belt. I’m really feeling my belts lately and have a collection of five at the moment (3 designer, 2 high street), but a neutral beige one has always been missing. I love how simple this one is, and how elegant while making a statement. At number 2 is a set of cute, gold paw earrings, and given how much I love animals, they would be ideal! Number 3 has really taken my fancy as I love anything coral related, so this muted orange coat from Topshop would make such a cute Spring addition to my wardrobe! It’s very chic! Now getting to the high waisted legging…

Raindrops of Sapphire Christmas Gift Guide

1 | 2 | 3 | 4 | 5 | 6 | 7 | 8 | 9 | 10 | 11 | 12 | 13 | 14 | 15 Since I am seeing so much Holiday content everywhere online, I thought I would keep my Christmas Gift Guide this year to a minimum so you don’t get bored or sick of it. Last year I did a combination of my own, Adam’s, and my mum’s present ideas, but this year I am just going to combine a few things, with a complete mixture of prices, for both men and women, in one gift guide so there’s something for everyone. I’m usually all about unisex items, but I have colour coded the men’s pieces in blue, and the women’s in red, so you know what’s what, but obviously if you think any of these suit the other gender, by all means, go for it! I’ve not chosen any clothing this year and have pretty much gone for accessories mostly, as well as decor items and stationary, so you don’t really have any worries about fit here, which I know can always be a scary point, especially when it’s a gift! So, for the men in your life, and since socks are always a common practice at Christmas, I’ve included a gift box from the London Sock Company and I think it’s amazing. If you don’t mind splurging, these snazzy socks could be cool! At number 2 is a device that I find so intriguing, it’s a little stopper you stick to the back of your phone so you can hold it…

Currently Craving Wish List: November 2018

0 | 1 | 2 | 3 | 4 | 5 | 6 | 7 | 8 | 9 | 10 | 11 | 12 It’s time for me to round up my favourite items from November again in my Currently Craving Wish List! There’s so many things that I am loving right now, and four of them I have already purchased from the collage above. I will be doing a Christmas gift guide for both men and women in early December too, so stay tuned for that one! So, what’s on my list for November? The first knitted jumper is from Zara and I actually own it in both the white and red (you saw the red here), it’s so thick and cosy, and since it’s acrylic, it’s not itchy! I definitely recommend them for a thick winter jumper. Next up is a scarf from Joules that I got and showed you in my November life update. I saw this lace black Topshop body and thought it’s really sexy! I’m in love with this blush metallic pink knit from Allsaints too, it’s so pretty! How cool are those Rag & Bone skinny jeans in metallic red? So festive! Then I saw the Anya Hindmarch eyes bag and thought it was just adorable, then the gemstone rings are super pretty too! I think those would finish off any outfit around this time of year. On the second row, an eye shadow palette is always on my list as I love experimenting with the colours, and the Sam Edelman loafers might just be a great alternative to the Gucci Brixton that…

Currently Craving Wish List: October 2018

1 | 2 | 3 | 4 | 5 | 6 | 7 | 8 | 9 | 10 | 11 | 12 | 13 | 14 If there’s one thing you take from this month’s and last month’s Currently Craving Wish List, it’s earrings. I’m really into my jewellery and earrings at the moment and have recently ordered about 4 different single ones from Zoe Chicco as I’m in love with the elegance of her designs. I got the moon and star studs here, and the moon and star huggies in the previous post. This is in preparation for getting my ears pierced for a second lobe stud. I like the idea of wearing a hoop/drop earring and a stud at the same time, so I figured two sets is the way to go. Hopefully I can get it done soon. At number three it’s a gorgeous ombre scarf from Reiss which I think is beautiful as it would go with so many things! Fourth and fifth is a beautiful Bareminerals lip matte in OMG which I really want, and a highlight palette. I definitely recommend the lip mattes though! I have other shades and they last for hours. At number 6 and 7, there’s a gold blazer and a teal leather trench coat, again from Reiss, and they’re so cool! I think they would be ideal for the Autumn right now. Then 8, 9 and 12 are earrings, again they need no explanation as I’m into cute little studs right now! Then number 10 is a ring with rainbow stones, and I think it’s stunning! Again, it’s from…
