Wish List #1 - September Edition

There are several items that I've been mulling over for a few weeks now so I thought I'd share them with you, as well as giving myself a little reminder to check back on when payday comes and I get all dizzy-headed.

Having just come back from holiday (post coming soon..!) I think I should hold off spending any more cash for a little while...but maybe a couple of these items will sneak in before payday.

1: Topshop; 2: Topshop; 3: Zara; 4: ASOS; 5: La Roche Posay; 6: ASOS; 7: New Look

Despite it being perfect for this time of year, I've never owned a mac - I love them but always think they look a bit too 'grown up' for me! I think at 23 it might be time to take the plunge. I'm torn between these 2 styles but will probably turn to ebay to look for a cheaper alternative anyway...so I can justify buying it now before the weather turns a bit too chilly.

I've been on the hunt for the perfect breton striped top for a while and I'm yet to find 'the one'. This isn't it. The hunt continues but with increased impatience!

This Zara bag is a real bargain and I'm eyeing it up (but probably in black not tan) as my next every day work bag. Literally the only reason I didn't buy it in-store a few weeks ago is because I thought it was too nice to mess up/get battered about as a work bag. So I didn't buy it all. Find the logic there then.

I love La Roche Posay as a brand and regularly recommend their Effaclar range to anyone within earshot. Despite having been on the looking out for a good hydrating face mask for months I'd never even thought of this. Definitely on my next shopping list for Boots.

Ankle boots - another sign of the change of season! Now I know the wedge ones are definitely not the most attractive of boots but I own them in tan and they are really comfy and easy to wear, so I want the black ones for work. They're also super cheap from the kiddies/teen section.
Yes I know I'm late to the party with the other boots up there, but I still want a pair in this style. I'll probably be turning to ebay for these too as there's no way I'm paying £75! Contemplating these ones but I'm not sure. I want to know how comfy/high they'll be first. Has anyone else got a good pair of boots in this sort of style from anywhere that's cheaper than the Topshop ones? (Am I being stingy here?!)

Although I have managed to be fairly restrained with my money recently (holiday spending aside) I would like to be able to up my savings potential for a little while. I was inspired by fellow spendaholic and one of my favourite bloggers Tabitha's post and the plan to let yourself buy one nice thing each week - something you've already decided on. I have a feeling though that I would end up buying that 'one thing'...and then lots of other things that I 'need'!

Anyway, I'm hoping to continue these little posts of my planned and wished for purchases :) As the seasons get colder I can already envisage a big fluffy parka coat creeping its way onto the list... When that happens though you'll all have to remind me I'll look like the michelin man in one.
