After getting down to write my first wishlist kind of posts a few months back, I would have expected to be putting out a much later installment now but my indecision and procrastination has bested me again. Now that it’s May with Spring kind of in full-swing — I’m a poet and I didn’t know it — these are an edited selection of beauty products and attire that I’ve been looking at to transition into Summer and complete the whole spring thing. Thanks to my rekindled interest in that whole style venture, induced majorly by Sophie’s minimal wardrobe posts, there are a few more fashion bits thrown in with the beauty…
(i) Zara Strappy Lace Top in Off-White ($59.90 CDN):
Whilst the price-tag of this one might not appear the most budget friendly, it is staple tops like these that are lightweight and comfortable yet interesting that when paired with the basics make my kind of favourite outfits so they’re worthwhile. The cream colour of this one keeps it versatile as does the fact that it isn’t so form-fitting or revealing and therefore it looks more laid back than nighttime. All in all, pieces like these are valuable in my book.
(ii) Deva-Curl B’Leave-In ($26 CDN):
I’m aware that repurchased items aren’t usually included in wishlist posts and I’ve mentioned wanting to pick this up before but I’m including this one anyways. The protein-treatment boosted my curls, infusing them with vitality when I used this constantly last summer and now that I seem to have the rest of my routine under control, I figured that this would be a valuable addition.
(iii) Hourglass Ambient Lighting Powder in Diffused Light ($52 CDN):
After falling in love with Ethereal Glow, one of the blushes that corresponds with these supposedly magical airbrushing finishing powders, I just have to try one finally and the shade that I’ve heard would be ideal for all over the face to eliminate some redness and set while adding some gold is this one.
(iV) Zara Round Neck Sweater in Orange ($49.90 CDN):
Although I currently own maybe one piece from Zara, I’m a huge fan of the store and as I don’t have one as close as a days trip to me, I was excited to learn that they offered extremely affordable shipping (free with $50) and free returns and this was what was my other top pick. I love lightweight sweaters like this one and it actually seems like a practical purchase to me so I can’t refuse obviously. I like the laid-back slouchy shape of the thin sweater and the tangerine hue is different in a good way and would pair wonderfully with the staples I already have.
(V) MAC Alluring Aquatic Extra Dimension Bronzer in Aphrodite’s Shell ($38.50 CDN):
After a good few years of investing in (and loving) MAC’s big spring releases, I’ve developed quite a soft spot for them and this bronzer has caught my eye and the attention of my thinning wallet. I’ve always been eager to try one of the ‘Extra Dimension’ products from MAC and despite being a bronzer girl, I don’t have too many in my possession so I’ve convinced myself that this purchase is justified. This more golden-hued and less orangey offering shall be mine…
What have been your top wishlist picks as of late? Have you tried/do you own any of these?

SO happy to hear that about Zara. I see internet shopping in our future, Maggie… Shan’t be hard to spend 50$! Great post. 🙂
Thanks, Gill! And I’m glad to hear that someone else will be developing as much of a shopping problem as me 🙂
