Wishlist Wednesday #16 // All I Want For Christmas...

So last week, I posted about the lippies that I would love for Christmas HERE. This week, it's miscellaneous things - i.e fashion and gadgets!
All these are things I've been coveting for ages and are the peak of my wishlist!

1. Floral Bomber Jacket - eBay : US$ 11.43 // £7.06

Been debating whether to get this! The dark floral print is perfect for A/W, and since this is made out of chiffon, it's great for keeping you warm when it's not that cold or good for layering! Absolutely gorgeous!
Trying not to cave in and get it....

2. Tan Satchel - eBay : US$ 11.94 // £7.38

I featured this before, but I'm going to do it again! The tan/light brown colour goes well with anything and by the looks of it ,the size is not too big or too small which means I can fit quite a bit inside without looking like I'm lugging around all my possessions! Perfect for school or casual use. Want!

3. New Look Chancery Buckle Heeled Black Ankle Boots - ASOS : US$ 32.32 // £18

Okay, so this is the pair of boots that I have been constantly debating internally about whether I should get them or not! The price is super reasonable, but I really do not need another pair of boots...but they're gorgeous D: D: #firstworldproblems That is my dilemma. Still thinking about this one and practically resisting that temptation.

4. Slouchy Beanie - eBay : US$ 3.19 // £1.97

Just a nice slouchy beanie/beret-like hat to keep that head warm during A/W or as a fashion accessory. If I had my way, I would probably get it in every colour...

5. Canon EOS 600D - eBay : US$ 549.50 // £369.99

This would be a dream come true. The family camera I'm using now - the Nikon - is great for picture taking, but I would love a viewfinder to make taking outfit posts much easier or even to film good quality videos! How awesome would this be!

So yeah, these are all the temptations that I've been trying to resist but since it's Christmas, I have a great excuse to share! Oh and, I checked my blog sidebar picture AND my blog button because I thought it was time for a change. I quite like my current one - what do you think? And, what's on your Christmas wishlist?

OOTD // Life Is A Maze


top: unbranded // skirt: cotton on // belt: primark // wedges: new look // flower hair clip: forever 21

This outfit seems very Parisian Chic to me...all I need is a beret to complete the look because well, a fedora just isn't the same!
A phrase from an old song, The Show by Lenka which is super duper catchy, so do go listen!

Just submitted my university applications on UCAS so I guess now, we wait... fingers crossed!
Still got my Singapore & Hong Kong applications to do D: And my Extended Essay and Maths IA is looming over me like a death threat so...please bear with me if I do not post as often as I'm figuratively drowning in school work. And it doesn't help that I'm a massive procrastinator.

This weekend was the Terry Fox run, a charity event that raises funds for cancer research (for those of you that are unaware). The route was 5km and I think I did pretty well, considering I haven't exercised in aeons which is bad. Oh and, Catching Fire is out! Wheeee! But I haven't  watched it, but I really want to... I want to know how the arena is like!
Till next time (:

Linking up with: Monday BloomThree-fer Thursday + Friday's Fab Favourites + WWIW + Simple Easy Style

Review // Maybelline Hyper Curl Volum' Express Mascara (Waterproof)

This review is wayyy overdue :P
I bought this a few weeks ago because I was running low on mascara and really wanted to try this out. Needless to say, it is fast becoming one of my favourites (:

- Instant Volume-Building Express Formula quickly thickens eyelashes.
- Patented Curved Anti-Clump Brush performs separated eyelashes.
- Ultra Waterproof formula ensures long lasting wear.
- Curly Fix Formula fixes and curls up the lashes instantly for 75ยบ curl lasting 18 hours.

The ultimate mascara for me, as to curl and lengthen my lashes. Being waterproof is an added bonus cause no one wants black eyes at the end of the day! From the description, this mascara is looking like a winner.

Packaging & Wand

Your standard mascara packaging - I mean, how creative can mascara packaging really get anyway. I do love that the colour scheme is black and pink though :D
My favourite thing about this mascara is probably the wand because it has short bristles and is slightly curved which makes it wayyy easier to coat those pesky lashes and the very end of the eyes which out poking yourself!


It's waterproof which is great if you get teary-eyed easily, but not so great if you're planning on doing a full swim training workout with this mascara on! That being said, it's relatively easy to remove with makeup remover - unlike some waterproof formulas!

Final verdict

As you can see, it did lengthen and curl my pathetic short lashes which is great! *note: I did not use an eyelash curler* You can really see a difference and this mascara works to brighten up your eyes - especially when you're looking a little tired. The curl stays for a good 6 hours! Sometimes, application (especially if you're doing more than 2 coats) could cause it to get spidery but if you comb through, it should be fine
Overall, I'm really liking this!

What is your favourite mascara?
