Wanted but not Needed

Hello lovelies!

I’m a sheep. I’m a total sheep. I follow hundreds of blogs, youtube channels, and websites run by cosplayers, personalities, gurus, and vloggers that are constantly recommending items for me to by. Things that I won’t be able to live without. Now that I’m a recent graduate / gleefully unemployed, I find myself lusting after basically everything without the budget or means to obtain these things. I’m a very fortunate person – I have all the material possessions I could ever want or need. But I’m allowed to lust after things right?

Here’s a little wishlist I put together~


I’m a recovering Sephora addict and have convinced myself there’s only so much make that I can put on my face on a given day. Luckily, this mentality has forced me to switch up my makeup bag/routine every few days so that I get good use out of all my products. When I walk past a Sephora in the mall, I try to divert my eyes. I’m on a makeup buying ban until the end of the year, but knowing me, I’ll definitely crack sometime around August (birthday hauls y’know, THE SEPHORA BIRTHDAY GIFT…ughghghdfjgkdhfg).

Hourglass Ambient Lighting Palette – Swatched these in store, absolutely gorgeous. Doesn’t help that every beauty blogger and their cousin raves about this.

Burberry Sheer Eye Shadow in Pale Barley: Gorgeous golden bronzey nude shade / my number one eye look, this shadow would fit in perfectly.

Clarisonic Mia2 Cleansing System: CLEAN AND PERFECT SKIN IS THE GOAAALLL and apparently this is a great way to achieve it!

Toofacted Sweethearts Perfect Flush Blush – Heart shaped coral blush with shimmer? Count me in!

Roses de Chloe perfume – Roses are my absolute favourite flower, and I’m in love with my Chloe rollerball perfume. I always spritz this on myself when I pop into Sephora because I can’t justify paying over 100 on a perfume yet…

Glamglow Supermud Clearing Treatment – I lovelovelove face masks/muds/peels, and this one claims to help with common skin concerns!

Sunday Riley Luna Sleeping Night Oil – This one is based purely on hype. Everyone talks about how amazing this is and how great your skin looks after using it! My skin has greatly improved over the past few months/years and I’ve greatly invested in my skincare regime. I’d love to see if it lives up to the hype.

Chanel Rouge Coco Shine in Flirt – A friend was wearing this when we were out to lunch the other day and it looked gorgeous on her – a lovely soft wash of color. Plus orange lips, yesyesyes

Diorskin Nude BB Cream – Again, previously mentioned friend was wearing this and her skin looked so good! (Yes, I trust this friend’s recommendation because she’s a huge makeup geek and has literally tried everything/knows the goods and the bads, and has a similar skin type/shade as me)

Korres Wild Rose Daily Brightening & Refining Buff Cleanser: Already given my heart to Korres after committing to their Wild Rose night facial cream. The wild rose scent is fabulous and my skin feels amazing in the morning, so I figured the cleanser would be a natural addition!


iPhone 6: Do I need to upgrade to the 6 from my current iPhone 5? No. Do I want to? Yes! I’ve been eyeing this baby because of its camera – apparently its much better than the 5’s camera. Also, it would be much easier to vlog on an iphone at conventions as opposed to my regular Canon ELPH 300hs = less to carry around at cons.
Razer Chroma keyboard: It looks cool as hell. YOU CAN PUT ON CHANGING COLOR PATTERNS. So cool aughghggh!
Softbox Lighting: Ok this one is a bit more of a necessity – I usually film videos in my room and rely on ikea lamps/desk laps/ overhead spotlight lighting. Before color correction, my videos are typically super yellow! I hate it. This also causes a bit of Graininess in my videos which isn’t that appealing. I might look into softbox lighting soon so I can upgrade the quality of my videos.
Let me know what is on your wishlist! Have you tried any of my wishlist items? What are your thoughts?
