Non-Beauty Wishlist #1



Although this blog will always be primarily about beauty, I do want to start doing some more lifestyle and fashion related posts this year. So I thought I'd start off with a non-beauty wishlist!

Top row
 
I have only recently got into candles and now I love lighting a couple of candles in the evening and having a snuggle on the sofa! I haven't ever bought a Yankee Candle before, so I think it's about time that changed. I just love the sound of Pink Dragonfruit! A medium candle costs £16.99.

I bought my sister a Lily Flame candle for her birthday and I somehow resisted picking one up for myself. These cute pots cost £8.50 and there are a range of scents to choose from - my favourite being Lavender and Lime, which is an unusal combination but smells amazing! All Lily Flame candles have coloured wax chunks on top that melt when the candle warms up, which is a nice, unique touch.

I do love a good read and I am obsessed with the TV programme Mr Selfridge on a Sunday night, so I'd love to read the book Shopping, Seduction and Mr Selfridge, which is what the TV programme is based on. Plus it's only £3.85 on Amazon!! Bargain.

Bottom row

I love Twilight and I'm not ashamed. I have all the books and all the other DVDs, so I just have to complete my collection with the Breaking Dawn Part 2 DVD, which is released in a few weeks. I'm so tempted to have a Twilight marathon when I get it!! On Amazon this is only £10.00.

Another DVD I've spotted on Amazon (for £22.75) is the first series of the American TV show Revenge. So many people are raving about this programme and I really wish I'd started watching it when it came out. "Beneath the luxurious lifestyle of the Hamptons lies a dark, dirty secret and a twisted tale of passion, suspense and ultimate redemption." Oooooh!

Finally, I would quite like a new handbag as I haven't bought one for ages! I love my tan Paul's Boutique one, but this grey studded bowler one from River Island has caught my eye! Although grey isn't one of the most exciting colours, it's one of my favourites. I love River Island bags and they're well worth the money - this one is £40.00. I might have to wait until my birthday for this though!


I'd love to hear what's on your non-beauty wishlist?

  2. I love Lily Flame and Yankee candles :) they smell just like the description! You can pick up small tester candles of the Yankee ones to see if you like the scent before you splurge on the big jars x

  3. I just got Netflix and i'm hooked on a show called Drop Dead Diva at the moment, but i'm definitely going to watch Revenge next!! Netflix is £5.99 a month but i pay a little bit extra for a service that allows me to watch the US Netflix too, it makes it so much more worth the money!
    I have Pink Dragon Fruit in a Yankee tart as well, burning it at the moment, its gorgeous!
