Wishing and Hoping

wish

February is cold, bleak and grey. Technically it is my least favourite month of the year but it also the month of my birth so I try to make the best of it. This morning I woke up to a flurry of snow and a literal gale has been raging all day so in order to combat the winter blues I compiled a list of lovely things that I would like to receive on my birthday. Admittedly this was an self indulgent past time but I'm sure that you will like them as much as I do and it brightened up my day.


1. TBA Urban Outfitters (coming soon)
TBA's SS11 collection has been all over the Internet and it is perfect as always. I think my greatest wish in life is to wear TBA everyday.

2. Union Jack Umbrella from London Undercover
My heart skipped a beat when I first saw this umbrella from London Undercover, it's it the cutest? It also comes in a lovely dusky shade with plaid instead of gingham. It rains alot in Scotland, I think I need them both...

3. Liberty Tana Lawn in Tom's Jet, Floribunda & Nina
All seamstresses love Liberty fabric, it's the thimble law! I would love like to make pretty dresses in all these fabrics but at £20 a meter I don't know if I would be able to pluck up the courage to even cut it.

4. Lula Petal Blouse from Nadinoo
Let us not speak, instead we shall marvel at it's perfection.

5. Books - Style Me Vintage by Belinda Hay and British Baking by Peyton & Byrne
The first book is an absolute necessity, my birthday party is going to be 60's themed and I will be attempting to style my hair like Joan Holloway. This book is full of vintage hair tutorials using modern techniques so hopefully it will teach me how . As for the second, I'd better keep on wishing and hoping because it isn't actually published until March (I didn't actually realise that when I made the montage). Move over cupcakes, its all about British teatime treats.

6. Cookie Cutters
These are also a wish that is unlikely to come true since they are made by an American company that don't ship to the UK but aren't they lovely. You can see them on Ellie's blog, it's all her fault that I love them.

What is on your wish list?

  2. Ahh the Nadinoo blouse is beautiful, and that perfect cornflower sky blue! And the Liberty fabrics are perfect for spring dresses, but so dear indeed.

    Thank you for the mention, I should be going to the states in september so if you still want some then I shall send you some over :) x

  4. Lovely picks, the umbrella is awesome! <3 My ultimate wish is floral Doc Martens - http://www.drmartens.com/ProductDetail.asp?PID=11821260 - but no way I'm buying them, they're way too expensive for my humble student earnings :D

  7. I have the Williams Sonoma cookie cutters--just need to actually use them. They are darling. I added British Baking to my Amazon wish list (not like I need another British cookbook!). I wonder if it will be published here in the US? I hope so!

  9. I saw those cookie cutters and am sad that I can't have them too. My boyfriend is going over to the US in October but he's going with his stupid friends so trips to the American version of Lakeland would probably be frowned upon. I'm still going to ask him.

  11. aww everything is so cute! that umbrella!! (L) haha I'd also love to wear TBA clothes everyday, they're just so perfect, the only bad thing about them is that silk doesn't absorb, and it has to be dry cleaned... but the fabrics are so soft, I already want a lot of things of the new collection haha

  19. I actually just can't wait for summer. We've had snow storms and freezing weather and I even got frostbite on my hands two weeks ago so I think summer would really be the best cure for the winter blues right now :P

  24. I HATE February so much- it just never seems to be a good month for me! I'm jealous that your birthday falls in it- it might give me more reason to like it ;)

  25. What a beautiful selection Cait!
    As you say, the Nadinoo blouse is just pure perfection, and it's an adorable shade of blue, too sweet for words :)
    As for the TBA new collection, I love all the yellow and cream colors and that print with swans is just stealing my heart!
