Currently Craving Wish List: May 2018

Senreve Mini Maestra Bag in Merlot Since they shut down Polyvore last month, I’m setting out my wish lists in a different way now. I know I have Photoshop, but it takes 4 times as long as what Polyvore did, so I’m doing it this way. I’ve chosen a mixture of items I’ve recently purchased and items that I would love to own, so May’s Currently Craving roundup is filled with things I recommend! I’m going to be speaking about each item underneath the corresponding photo, and of course you can purchase it via the link directly under the image as well. I hope you enjoy it! Above is the Senreve Mini Maestra Bag in Merlot. I’ve liked these bags for quite a while and enjoy the shape of them, but I think the burgundy tone is gorgeous! It even comes in a coral (see here) which I absolutely love, but I think burgundy would be the best suited to me. Topshop Dot Wrap Red Top I don’t own this top, but when I saw it earlier on the Topshop website, I thought it was gorgeous! How cute would it look with high rise black skinny jeans?! Oasis Cotton White Shirt I purchased this shirt a couple of weeks ago and it’s one of the best white cotton shirts! It’s comfortable, breezy and so easy wearing that I’ve been living in it all holiday! It works just as well over things as it does as a single piece. I took size 10 in it so it was oversized and comfortable. I can’t recommend this one enough! Oasis Seahorse Playsuit Again,…

Currently Craving Wish List: April 2018

1 | 2 | 3 | 4 | 5 | 6 | 7 | 8 | 9 | 10 As I have quite a full schedule for the rest of this month, and some very important posts planned (including a health update), I am doing my Currently Craving Wish List now instead of at the end of the month. I’ve ended up with quite a few new things actually this month (some of them are in the mail like number 3, 9 and 10), but because I’ve sold so much stuff and hadn’t really bought many new things, I was definitely in need of some newer pieces for the summer months ahead. I can’t believe it’s literally only just started to warm up in mid April. It feels like it’s been winter since October! So, what’s on my wish list for April then? First up is the Chloe Faye that I have had my eye on for a while, but I have never purchased as I wasn’t sure if it’s too similar to my Chloe Drew in colour, however it’s a gorgeous design and I’ve never stopped staring at it. If any of you have the Faye, let me know what it’s like! Then there’s that gorgeous Swarovski ring in rose gold – so pretty! The next item is a Topshop Tie Waist Dress that I saw last week and fell in love with. I like wrap style pieces with a lower neckline as they’re flattering, so I’m hoping this one works for me! Then there’s a perfect spring piece in that Topshop Lilac Duster Coat! Isn’t it just beautiful?…

Currently Craving Wish List: March 2018

0 | 1 | 2 | 3 | 4 | 5 | 6 | 7 | 8 | 9 | 10 Can you believe we are about to step into April? Happy Easter for tomorrow everyone! Since I always round out the months with a Currently Craving Wish List, I will get straight to it. This month has been one that’s tested my ‘no buying’ rule to the limit actually and to cut a long story short, I broke and have bought two things. In my defense, one of the items was what I was saving up for and selling things I own to put money towards it (more on that soon) and the other was a spur of the moment impulse purchase which I absolutely do not regret – it’s amazing! So, what’s on my wish list for March and April? First up on the top line are those Gucci sneakers! How amazing are those? Crystals and rainbow metallic? Yes please! They also come in Black (click here). Then there’s a dainty ring, an adorable Kate Spade watch and denim bag (which is definitely very me!), some Gucci sunglasses and a crystal bee ring. I’ve never really bought anything from Kate Spade before, but she really does make some cute little items! Number 7 is from her too. Now on the bottom line, we start off with the Rebecca Minkoff clutch in a straw material which is ideal for summer, a Balmain blazer (which has been a want of mine for years as they are supposed to fit perfectly), a pair of white Gucci loafers, and then this gorgeous…

Currently Craving Wish List: February 2018

1 | 2 | 3 | 4 | 5 | 6 | 7 | 8 | 9 | 10 | 11 It’s never ending once you get the items you have wanted for ages, your brain always then finds something else to obsess over! Or is that just me? I’ve managed to tick a few beautiful pieces off of my 2018 designer wish list and I’m really excited about that, however there’s always more coming out that I fall in love with and some of them have made it onto my February wish list. First up is that ACNE Bomber Jacket – I’ve had that tab open for over a month now as the colour is gorgeous, but it’s a little out of my price range and I already own a burgundy bomber. Pretty though isn’t it? Then it’s an embroidered kimono from Topshop, I love pieces like that for the warm months ahead. I always adore Citizens of Humanity and can’t get enough of their jeans, so it’s no surprise those made it to my list! Such a nice wash. Then it’s a Free People Jumper that I’ve wanted for ages, also in black as well at number 6. I have been searching for a slouchy cream jumper like that to wear with jeans for so long and hadn’t found one, until now. I love white denim in the Spring too so those skinny white DL1961 jeans are ideal! I then spotted that orange Topshop top as it’s so cute for Summer, I can just imagine how pretty it will look with jeans. Now those mules from Aquazzura are just amazing! The…

Currently Craving: January 2018

0 | 1 | 2 | 3 | 4 | 5 | 6 | 7 | 8 | 9 | 10 How did January almost come to an end? I feel like I’ve been saying it a lot but January has literally flown by and it’s shocking how quick it’s all going. It’s been one of those months where everything has been a bit of a blur and I’m still trying to figure things out and get organised. The last couple of weekends have been good though as I managed to get a lot of sorting out done, my schedule is organised, I’m up to date with everything so I’m heading into this week clearly and it’s a good feeling. It’s funny how organising things makes you have a clearer mind, isn’t it? Anyway, getting to this post, my Currently Craving Wish List is here! For the first one of the year, I’ve chosen quite a few simple things and I love them all! Some are really great for Valentine’s Day like those beautiful red Topshop Boots, or the heart glitter earrings, and especially the Yankee Candle roses candle, but I also thought the Kate Spade Love Letters Bag was just adorable! How cute is that for a Valentine’s Day inspired moment? I fell in love with it! Now getting to the more classic pieces, I love both the skinny jeans from MOTHER and AG Jeans, I own the distressed pair and they’re really good, but I’m yet to own the AG. I think they would look really cute with that Topshop cropped hoody (love that) or with the grey…

My 2018 Ultimate Designer Wish List

I thought I would do a different type of post today and share with you the items I am in love with, but in a different way to my Currently Craving Wish Lists as this contains the pieces I definitely want. I managed to tick a few things off my wish list last year like the Gucci GG Belt and Princetown Loafers, as well as the Gucci Marmont Belt Bag and the Dionysus Shoulder Bag. Yep, I did go a little crazy over Gucci last year, but so did everyone. They were literally the brand to watch! My tastes this year though so far are much more varied when it comes to brands and items, so I’m looking at Celine, Boda Skins, Balenciaga, Mansur Gavriel, Chanel, Chloe and even Golden Goose. Of course Stuart Weitzman is always on my list, but not included in this wish list for 2018 as I’m uncertain on the fit compared to the custom size boots I usually get. Anyway, check out what’s on my 2018 ultimate designer wish list below! Chanel Trendy Small CC Bag in Beige Image courtesy of Chouquette.co.uk I recently fell in love with this Chanel Trendy CC Small Bag in Beige. I’ve seen it in Black numerous times and it’s equally as beautiful, but there’s something about the versatility of the Beige that I am head over heels in love with. The whole shape of the Trendy, even the size of it, and the little cross body strap that drops inside so you can have it as a tote is an ingenious idea. There’s nothing I don’t like about it,…

Christmas Gift Guide From Me, My Mum & Adam

Raindrops of Sapphire Christmas Gift Guide It’s Christmas! Well, almost! December is the best month in the Winter and I’m still always excited by the lights, the festivities and everything else! I always do a gift guide for Christmas every single year, but this time I thought I might do something a bit different. Instead of choosing all the items myself, I’ve got a gift guide from my mum and Adam as well. I’m very aware that as a solo female blogger, my tastes in things are often not as broad as they could be for every one of you, which is why I’ve gone for three options! My gift guide covers all the things I like and think would make good Christmas presents, based on me as an almost 30 year old female that’s into fashion and accessories (but not so much into beauty). My mum is 51 so she has more of a liking to things that would be suitable for the older lady and she adores beauty (as I’m sure you can tell). Then finally, Adam is 35 and his tastes vary as a fashionable male that also loves gadgets and gaming, so items that could be suitable for the men in your life. I don’t think age matters here though since men never grow up *winks* ha ha, I’m joking! So in total, there’s 38 items in this gift guide! To be honest, I kind of love most of the things in my mum’s and Adam’s anyway as I do like quirky gadgets and super heroes myself, plus the jewellery my mum chose is pretty. If…

Currently Craving Wish List: November 2017

0 | 1 | 2 | 3 | 4 | 5 | 6 | 7 | 8 | 9 | 10 In just a couple of days time it’s going to be December and that’s one of my favourite months! Not because of the weather, I really dislike December for that, but because it’s a festive month and everyone has an excuse to be jolly and kind! I know us Brits are known for being grumpy, so the Christmas period always comes with that reason for people to be silly and wear funny Christmas knitwear, or just to be kind because there’s a reason. I feel like this should transition to every month though as there’s always reason to be kind. It’s also the month that Adam and I get to spend extra time with each other, away from work, so that excites me! Plus… there’s Christmas lights everywhere! We even have fake snow every hour in Southgate here in Bath! Don’t worry though, this isn’t my last wish list before Christmas! I will be doing an actual Christmas gift guide in December, around the 10th, and this time it’s a bit different. I’m including a collage from myself, one from my mum, and one from Adam. That way almost all the bases are covered when it comes to gifts for different people and ages. I thought that might be more fun than just giving my own opinion on everything, as after all, no one of us is the same! So, what’s in my Currently Craving Wish List for November? A lot of interesting things! It’s no secret that I…
