Weekend Wishlist Issue 6

So sunny here in London that I’ve been imagining it’s summer. Went looking around the house for some sunglasses and could only come up with a pair from Primark that had seen better days. Still, those who were strolling near Balham today will have seen I was wearing them proudly!

So first on my wishlist ( I keep wondering if wishlist should be two words…) today are sunglasses. Now remember this is about wishes and not reality so my first choice is these Dolce & Gabbana DG4149 Matt Silk Sunglasses in Matte Black. They say:

“Elegant sunglasses from Dolce & Gabbana featuring a rounded shape that’s both sophisticated and feminine. Eye size 58 100% UV filter Editor’s Notes: Exclusive. Luxurious. Glamorous. Sophisticated. The Dolce & Gabbana collection is polished to perfection. Created for discriminating consumers who want eyewear that is also an exclusive keynote accessory. Twenty years of show-stopping design have made Domenico Dolce and Stefano Gabbana as famous as the stars who wear their work.”

They cost £156 and you can shop now here.

……and back in reality – a more likely purchase for me would be these John Lewis Ladies Matte Acetate Preppy Round Framed Sunglasses in Black. They say:

Our slender lightweight acetate frames are great for everyday wear. They come in a classic preppy style shape, with slim arms and round purple tinted lenses. This is an inexpensive way to update your look.

They cost just £15 and you can shop now here.

Next up is a product that I discovered at the Professional Beauty Show a few weeks back. It’s by a company called Shine Like a Celeb and it’s their Diamond Sparkle Body Cream. It’s made in the UK and has vitamins A, B, C and E and smells and looks amazing including the packaging. You can buy it here for £38. Currently, they have a limited offer and you can get 30% off quoting “SHINE” on the cart/voucher.


And as I’m still looking for that perfect summer scent I thought I would add this to the end of my wish list. There is currently a third off at Escentual – it’s Gucci Flora by Gucci – Eau de Toilette Spray. They say:

“Flora by Gucci is a subtle and sophisticated floral scent.

Built on a fresh and feminine breeze of flowers (Rose, Osmanthus), the fragrance’s top note conveys the freshness and lightness of citrus fruits.

Fresh and feminine, the fragrance remains very Gucci, with a sensual and subtly powerful base note of sandalwood and pink pepper.”


I’m having such a lovely weekend with my daughter visiting from uni and a day off booked for tomorrow. Wishing you all a great weekend ahead and that you get some of the things from your wishlist – or mine!
