Summer Series: Holiday Wish List

 photo holidaywishlist_zpsb2d7ffb1.jpg

A few days ago I noticed that Figleaves were hosting a competition on Pinterest to win £150 of holiday items. This got me thinking about what I’d love to get for summer this year and so I came up with a little (trust me, these are just a few) wish list of things I’d love to be slipping into my suitcase this summer.

Firstly, my wardrobe is in dire need of a revamp, and summer dresses will definitely be needed! I found this (5) gorgeous little number on the Olive website and fell in love with the dainty William Morris-esque flower pattern, and the smock style. I can imagine this being the perfect accompaniment when strolling down Mediterranean cobbled streets.

I thought these super cute sandals (1) that remind me of some I used to wear in Primary School, and ultra cool (2) Ray Ban sunglasses would be (4) perfect to team with this dress. To add some arm candy I picked this hummingbird illustration watch by Olivia Burton, which seems so delicate and pretty, to finish with ‘off the shoulder’ by (3) Essie, a stunning summery pink nail varnish.

I’m not one to tan well, so I always have to prepare before our holiday (so does Dad, but he won’t want anyone to know) so that means a good moisturiser and fake tan are in order! I’ve been a loyal Body Shop Body Butter fan since my year 8 days when I was given my first pot, so this delicious Passion Fruit (7) one will definitely be coming with me to Crete. This St.Tropez tan (6) will add a bit (a lot) of needed colour to my legs, and I’ve chosen the mouse one as I prefer this application consistency.

I’ve only started using highlighter recently, and I love the glow it gives me, so this Benefit ‘High Beam’ (9) will be fitting right into my make up bag, along with a baby pink (8) Kate Moss lipstick – number 16.

With a guide book in hand (10) , I’ll be ready for our short but sweet escape to Greece in August! If you have Pinterest, then be sure to follow Figleaves to keep updated with future competitions :)
