February Wishlist

Today I had a lovely walk around Leeds with the delightful Michelle. I did treat myself to a few things, which I have no doubt you'll be seeing around here in the near future. But. as I explained in my The Blogger Made Me Buy It tag post, Michelle likes to encourage my spending and if she'd had her way I'd have ended up bringing a lot home with me - here's a few of the things under consideration this month! 


1 - My biggest challenge was saying to no to the Banned Vintage Jacket we found in Pulp in the Trinity Centre. This is absolutely gorgeous, one of the nicest coats I've seen in ages, stunning colour, fits like a dream - but the £80 price ticket is just a little high considering I don't really need a coat. This one is hard to justify but hard to walk away from! 

2 - The Wild Wolf dress by Alice Takes A Trip was found in the same shop and is one of many similar nature-themed lace-collard frocks and picking a favourite was a tough call but in the end the wolves had it. This is showing at £59.99 on the website, but I'm sure it was reduced in store.

3 - While on the subject of wildlife printed dresses, I also have my eye on this foxy little number from Mistral Clothing. I love long sleeves on a dress as they seem quite hard to come by (it's still cold out there after all!), and this one's in the sale too - currently clocking in at £26.50

4 - I was actually after the Love Locket Bath Bomb when I headed into Leeds but left without it as I didn't realize until getting into the store that this comes in at close to £7, more than I can pay for a bath bomb no matter how pretty and seasonal it is! 

5 - We found ourselves in the L'Occitane store where we were totally treated like princesses - as well as being offered drinks while we browsed, we were given complimentary hand massages. The Secret to Beautiful Hands Kit (currently £38) contains the scrub, hand cream and cuticle cream used in store and my hands feel so wonderful I'd love to recreate this at home all the time!

  5. The coat is beautiful, what a gorgeous colour!! I love the look of the Love Locket, did NOT realise it was so pricey though - eek! Hopefully they'll be reduced after Valentine's Day ;D
