Kate Spade Lustin'

Kate Spade New York Wishlist

Kate Spade is one of my favourite premium brands that I like to lust after from afar. I'm too rubbish at saving money to actually be able to afford anything, but a girl can dream right...or make a wishlist!

4.  Faye Drive Hallie Bag, Sky Blue | £149 (sale!)


I can't decide which one I'd like most, but the pink bag, glitter Keds and candle are the top three! 

Which is your favourite?

How adorable is the gift contents from July's  Treat Box UK?! Pretty damn cute I'll tell you. 
As soon as I opened this month's subscription box, I was greeted by lots of Summery themed items all wrapped inside a watermelon pink shade of tissue paper, and sprinkled with the sweetest pineapple and melon shaped confetti. I am a huge advocate for little touches like this, it makes it feel so special!

Some of my favourites inside the box include a pretty pouch with the phrase 'and so the adventure begins darling' printed across the front, it's the perfect size for popping in a few favourite makeup items, nail polishes, or odd bits and bobs. I also love the cocktail scented Pina Colada candle, the 'everyday is an adventure' heart shaped plaque and the 'be a flamingo in a flock of pigeons' print which I'm half tempted to get framed! 

July also marks Treat Box's first birthday, so lots of sweet celebration style items were also included. I received a cute packet of multi-coloured confetti, a baby pink and gold Hooray flag, and little bottle of bubbles (although not the alcoholic kind you party animal!)

Full contents:
♥ Flamingo Print
♥ So The Adventure Begins Pouch
♥ Pineapple Wish Bracelet
♥ Pink & Gold Hooray Flag
♥ One In A Melon Badge
♥ Pina Colada Candle
♥ Everyday Is An Adventure Heart Plaque
♥ Oh The Places You'll Go Print
♥ Confetti Packet
♥ Mini Bottle of Bubbles
♥ Love Hearts

The whole box only costs £12.95 as a one off or £12 as a  subscription, which I think is pretty great value for what you recieve, especially compared to a lot of others on the market.

What do you think?

Charlotte Tilbury Hot Lips | Kim K.W (Kardashian) Lipstick Swatch

As soon as word got around that makeup queen Charlotte Tilbury was not only releasing an entire new selection of lipsticks branded as Hot Lips, but each that shade was inspired by numerous glamorous female celebrities, I was all over it. Then I saw photos of a gorgeous nude lipstick named after none other than Kim Kardashian. Love her or hate her the shade looked gorge, so I instantly added it to my mental wishlist (the wishlist in my head, but yes my wishlist is also crazy if that's what you thought I meant) and I nabbed it straight away on the day they were released like the keen bean I am.

The lipstick, named Kim K.W., is housed in classic Charlotte Tilbury rose gold packaging which feels and looks so luxurious, and the bullet has an pretty lip print embossed into the front that I just never want to ruin, it's dreamy! The shade is such a wearable, pretty nude colour which pulls a lot peachier once applied. It's quite light yet nothing too extreme that anyone with a medium skintone (much like Kim's) wouldn't be able to pull it off, but as I have quite fair skin, it sits as a lovely peachy rosey nude and is very flattering. It also has a smooth, creamy texture which gives a little bit of a gloss finish, similar to Mac's Cremesheen formula, but a little more longwearing. 

There are 12 lipsticks in the collection altogether and some have this same creamy finish, and others have a formula similar to Charlotte's Matte Revolution collection. I definitely could have splurged more as there are so many other pretty shades that caught my eye, including Liv It Up, a beautiful ballet pink inspired by Liv Tyler!


What do you think? Have you bought a Hot Lips lipstick?
