Erin's Summer Wishlist


1. At the top of my wishlist is a new fragrance for summer. As much as I adore my Byredo Black Saffron and Lancôme La Vie est Belle, I find that warm/gourmand scents can be too heavy in hot weather. The Estée Lauder Bronze Goddess 2015 Eau Fraîche ticks every box with notes of orange blossom, coconut, sandalwood, jasmine, and more.

2. The Aerin Multi Color for lips and cheeks was in Lisa Eldridge's video about the cream blushes she keeps in her pro kit. I adore cream blushes generally but it was hearing Lisa say that it gives a "healthy, natural, slightly sun-kissed feel" sold me! This has been sold-out every time I check at the Aerin counter so if need be I'll order it online, but there's something much more satisfying about shopping in person!

3. Katherine and I both raved about the YSL Gloss Volupté formula in a recent post – these glosses are so smooth and non-sticky that they are a pleasure to wear. I'd love to have more colours and since coral is my favourite lip shade at the moment (ever since Clinique's Melon Pop came on the scene) I would choose 203 Corail Gandoura.

4. The Vero Moda Off The Shoulder Bodycon Dress deserves a spot in my summer wardrobe. I love the flirty neckline and that it hits just above the knee. 

5. I'm a fanatic about drinking at least 2 litres of water a day – it's one of my top habits for good skin – and a Bkr water bottle would fit right into my lifestyle. Currently I use a decidedly unglamorous plastic Nalgene bottle during the day but I love the idea of having a sleek and well designed glass water bottle.

I always revisit our wishlist posts and if I'm in luck, some of these things will be on sale (although the perfume is limited edition so I'm definitely snapping it up whenever I find it!). Try creating your own wishlist if you tend to make impulse purchases. I keep lists in my phone of things that have sparked my interest, and if something keeps rising to the top for a few weeks than I'll seriously consider purchasing.

What do you have your eye on?
