Wishlist 3



Hello m'loves! I'll give you one guess what i'm obsessing over at the minute. Shoes and skincare I hear you say? Well how did you know that. Little bit of sarcasm thrown in there but yes, last time it was shorts and now shoes of the wedge and trainer variety as well as some skincare goodies are floating my boat. 

1-5
So, I have a confession to make. I can't walk in heels. At all. It's to do with my weak ankles causing a silly inability to walk in heels without my feet collapsing inwards. It really is a bummer, but wedges are meant to be easier to walk in, I have no idea why I haven't bought some before! Probably because I don't have the occasions to wear them. Maybe on holiday but that's only once a year, the others are more suited to occasions or nights out which I am a stranger too. They're so pretty though and can make an outfit look much more put together, it's also one step towards being able to own beautiful heels, considering my ankles approve of wedges. I really love them all. 

6-8
I'm also really liking the whole relaxed trainer look, not too sure about people trying to get Nike airs to sneak their way back into fashion but I have been fancying some Converse for a while, I've never been one for trainers to be honest and never thought I would be one to rock the Converse but I do like the way they look in every colour. I also spotted the Nike low vintage blazers on Office and really really like them, as for the mid blazers I love them also but they really do seem to be playing a game of hide and seek. I first spotted them on Asos in some nice colours but a few days later they had vanished, the odd colour pops up now and again but they're always sold out. The ones above I managed to track down on Very but once again, they're always sold out. If anyone knows where else I can find these please let me know, I know office do the high ones and I don't mind them but I much prefer the mid ones, trust me. 

Lately, the world of blogging and You tube has recently placed many nice skin care treats into my little mind. I want to give my skin a treat and have a change from my usual skin care products which not a lot of thought goes into. 

9-13
I have heard a few people talk about how much they love the beauty flash balm and the reviews sound great! If anything is going to make me look like I've had 12 hours sleep I'm up for giving it a go. I'm sure we have all heard of Bioderma and the great product that it is, I have always used facial wipes to remove my makeup but I think a liquid will be so much more gentle and the only one I seem to have heard of is Bioderma. Of course the Oilatum is down to Nic from Pixiwoo, my skin is normal but usually fluctuates between slightly oily and slightly dry. It has been more on the dry side for a while now so I think a more intensive moisturiser is needed. The vitamin E oil is down to Barbara after hearing how impressed she is with how it is working on acne scars. I have tried bio oil in the past but wasn't a fan of the greasiness, I have quite a bit of scarring which I would love to get rid off and it's meant to be good for stretch marks too. Another confession for you here, i'm just going to tell you because I know i'm not the only one, I have stretch marks, not just a few either, they are noticeable and I can't imagine being in a bikini this summer on holiday with them showing their faces so i'm desperate to get rid of them, if anyone has had any success with anything for stretch marks please let me know! Finally the Melvita rose extraordinary water was recommended to me by a lovely follower when I expressed my wants for some nice skincare, this really intrigued me, it sounds really nice!

I'm sorry for nattering on, I really can't help it! I have tried to cut it down yet there is still so much writing haha. Good job I didn't include the other few items that I was going to, they just didn't fit so I shall give them a little mention here; the 30 day shred, this Topshop jumper (it's love!) and the new Bourjois nail polish remover. What can I say, things just keep catching my eye, needs to stop! Anyways, I hope you have a lovely weekend, I'm off to do the wonderful job of cleaning my makeup brushes, such a chore. Hope you enjoyed this post.

Thanks for reading. Love, 
Rachael xx

  17. I've been wanting some converse for a while too- I've stayed away from them for the past few years as I used to be a tomboy and got it into my head people would think I was one now if I got them, but I've been desperate for some either in grey, lilac or turquoise to wear with pretty summer dresses!xxx
