Wish List #5 – All Under R 200

Wish List #4

Thank goodness it’s Friday!  It’s been a very cold and dreary week, and I cannot wait to spend the whole weekend snuggled up under a blanket in front of the TV watching movies / series and eating popcorn.  I might even sneak in a cup of hot chocolate or two…

Today’s blog post features items I am longing for at the moment, and all of them are UNDER R 200,00!

I’m part of a group of bloggers who get together every couple of months to encourage, support and assist each other during our blogging journey.  We are a group of like-minded ladies, who are passionate about blogging and like to have fun at the same time.  I’m telling you about this group because at the end of July, we’re having a ‘Christmas In July’ get-together and we’ve decided to do a little Secret Santa for this meetup.  The only ‘rule’ was that everything in the wish list needs to be under R 200,00.

Dear Secret Santa,

Here are a couple of things that are probably nice to know about me, should you decide not to purchase something from the list above:

♥  I have combination skin (oily T-zone) and at the moment my skin tone is quite light (i.e. NW20 in a MAC foundation)

♥  My favourite colour nail polishes are pinks and corals (although I already own way too many pink polishes) – Morgan Taylor, Essie and OPI are my favourite brands

♥  I also love glitter nail polishes – anything shiny makes my eyes twinkle

♥  I don’t like chocolate (but do love a good cup of hot chocolate on a cold Winter’s night)…weird, I know!

♥  I prefer savoury snacks (I’m not too fond of sweet things)

♥  I love most things at Typo

♥  If you can purchase a heat bubble I can live in for the next 2 months, for under R 200, please add that to the top of my Wish List (actually, it will be at the top of my MUST-HAVE list)

Yours sincerely,


P.S.  I have been a good girl, I promise.

      I’m missing the warm weather we have here in Summer, can actually can’t wait for Summer to roll around. But once we’re in the full swing of things in the heat, I’ll be missing Winter again – haha! 😀

    This is probably a really stupid question, but if you mostly wore natural pinkish and nude lipsticks which of the catrice lipliners would you recommend? Like is there a certain colour that works for more natural lip colours?
