Back to Uni Wishlist

Sometimes it's rather shocking how fast time flies. One minute it's the beginning of summer and you're walking down the streets in bare legs and little dresses, then before you know it you're reluctantly wrapped up in your scarf and parka jacket embracing the winter weather. It's been almost 3 months since I started my university summer break and in less than 2 weeks I'll be back in the classroom getting ready to begin my third year. I'm a mixture of fairly excited and really nervous and I know from the 30th of September I will probably be moving into the library and won't be seen until next year. I cannot believe how fast my time at university has gone. I remember two years ago next week starting university thinking that three years was going to drag, but every month that goes by, time seems to be getting quicker. I can't wait to finish university, get a job and move on to the next point of my career, but part of me will really miss it. This year I'm really making the most of my final year and participating in as much as possible so I really feel that I've lived my stint at university to the full. 

As much as we might not acknowledge it, the majority of us feel more confident when we're dressed for success. This year I want to practice being the trendy journalist of the future and start dressing a little less slouchy and more career ready. The wish list above shows all the items I'd love to have in my wardrobe and makeup draw this autumn. Realistically buying every item isn't going to happen, but a girl can dream. 

The first item on my wish list are these beautiful Kurt Geiger wedges. I've always been a KG girl and I'm very rarely out of my studded KG heels. I'd love another pair for my wardrobe, but something I could wear on a day to day basis. These wedges would be great for when the weather is having a good day and I'm able to have time off wearing the winter boots. It's said to snow pretty early this year so maybe that won't happen, but they would be a great investment for next summer too.

Secondly I really need to buy a case for my new phone. I've recently taken out a contract for the HTC One and I seriously don't trust myself with technology. The other year I took out a 24 month contract with my old phone and dropped it within 3 months - the screen was smashed beyond repair and I think i've finally learnt my lesson.

For the last few months I've really wanted a Michael Kors watch and hopefully i'll be able to buy the Runway watch once I've saved up in the next few months. I'm not usually a fan of watches, but Michael Kors have converted me. I love the classic style, the quality and the versatility of all their watches. I could see myself wearing this piece for years to come.

The watch and heels I've selected are in autumnal colours, therefore it would be nice to have a autumn inspired lipstick to go with them. I've been a fan of Illamasqua ever since I purchased my Eurydice a while back. The quality of their lipsticks are better than most other brands I've tried and they are really long lasting, which is great for a long day at university.  I'd love to buy the Mac Groundwork paint pot to go with this lipstick as I think both the colours would look fantastic together.

Do you have any items you're lusting after at the moment?
