Chloe’s Spring Wishlist!

C: It is super sunny outside at the moment, and although it isnt exactly warm yet it is making me very excited for the coming Summer! So I thought, what better way to celebrate then by putting together a Spring Wishlist, in the hope that some lovely person decides to treat me to all these beautiful things (wishful thinking eh?)!

1. Asos Maternity Skater Dress in Check £28 – okay so most of you are not interested in maternity clothes, but I think we can all appreciate this as a great dress in its own right. I love checked prints, so this would be perfect for the Spring weather, as it would also look great with tights when its a bit chillier! 

 2. Clinique Long Last Matte Lipstick £18 – recently Clinique have really upped their make up game and refreshed their lipstick line. I love their skincare so much, but have never been that interested in their make up until seeing these badboys. I think the Matte Petal shade (a super soft, girly pink) would be my first choice for Spring. 

 3. Topshop Semi Previous Teardrop Necklace £10 – layering up jewellery is super on trend at the moment, so this necklace is the perfect place to start if you are unsure! I love the green colour, as it would make the perfect contrast to so many outfits. 

 4. New Look Tan Leather Woven Sandals £24.99 – my favourite sandals finally died of old age so I had to throw them away at the end of last Summer (booooo) so I have been on the search for the perfect pair. I love the woven effect of these, brown goes with everything AND they slip on, so I dont have to panic that I won’t be able to do my own shoes up soon once super pregnant! Perfect!

So there is what I am currently lusting after, what about you guys? What do you think of my choices? #twolittleowls

Vinted Christmas Wishlist

A & C: Christmas is one of our most favourite times of the year, and we love nothing more than shopping at Christmas – so when the lovely team at Vinted asked us to put together a wishlist from their catalogue, we jumped at the chance! Vinted is a fantastic app and website which offers an endless array of fashion and accessory choices from one base. Annie recently reviewed the app, so click here for the full lowdown. So let’s get on to our wishlists!

A:

 9394873

Fedora Hat – £8.00

I’ve been after one of these for AGES, and I really love the shape of this one, plus its black so can be worn with pretty much the whole of my wardrobe!

8733035

Next Owl Boot Toppers £6.90 + P&P

Heheheheh I probably wouldn’t buy these for myself, but I couldn’t not include them and if someone bought them for me as a present I would love them! Owl boot toppers for Two Little Owls? Amazing. I probably wouldn’t wear these with anything other than wellies, but they would look great with them so totally worth it. Originally priced at £15, another bargain!

8545465

French Connection Gold Sequin £33.50 + P&P

This is PERFECT for Christmas. I love tunic/swing shape dresses (they hide the lumpy bits I don’t want people to see). And this one is beyond beautiful. I love it so much, and it would look great for a Christmas party, or even to wear on Christmas day! Originally £120, and this isn’t brand new, but if you’re looking for a bargain designer dress this is ideal.

9871915

New Look Tartan Cape £16 + P&P

I have been on the look out for a tartan cape for ages now, and I love the colours in this one. Chloe has a monochrome one which suits her perfectly (click here to see it!), and I love to steal it from time to time but the colours just don’t suit me. This is definitely on my Christmas list though!

Urban Outfitters Tie-Dye Camisole Dress £25 + P&P

I love tie dye and I love dresses… so as soon as I saw this I knew I had to add it to my wish list! I would wear this with tights, ankle boots and my vintage leather jacket for a Christmas party.

BooHoo Christmas Jumper £9

A Christmas wish list wouldn’t be complete without a Christmas jumper now would it?! I always wear one on Christmas day, and for £9 this is an absolute bargain! Definitely going on my Christmas list.

Miss Selfridge Gold Metallic Skirt £15

I am in love with this! It is so perfect for a Christmas party, the gold pattern makes it super festive! The skater style also suits me, as it goes in at the waist. For any of you curvy ladies like me, this would be perfect for giving you that hourglass shape!

Miss Selfridge Sheer Pink, Encrusted Collar Blouse £28

I picked this as I thought it would look amazing with the gold skirt! I love wearing skater skirts with a sheer blouse tucked in. The collar is also beautiful and adds even more bling to the outfit (you can never have too much!)

Have you guys ever used Vinted? It is such a good way to get a bargain! Let us know what you think of our wish lists! #twolittleowls

Summer Love Tag

11mf6dw

The beautiful Scarlet at Anxiously Bold tagged us for this and we thought it would be really fun to do, so here goes!

1. Summer lipstick you’re loving?

C: Mac in Creme Cup – Annie got me it for my birthday and I love it so much!

A: Revlon in Peach 075 (see it in our haul here)

2. Summer nail polish you’re loving?
C: Models Own scented nail polish in “Grape” is the perfect Summer pastel lilac. I also love Annie’s choice too!

A: Soigne polish in Persimmon, another review here from us -but it really is the best nail polish!

3. Bikini you’re loving?
C:I haven’t been on holiday this year (apart from our long weekend glamping) so haven’t worn any bikinis!

A: I took this bikini top from Topshop on holiday this year – it’s so so comfy and flattering, and I wore it with leopard print bottoms.

4. Favourite summer frappuccino from Starbucks?
C: I don’t really go to Starbucks… but if I did I prefer sweet flavours. So probably a caramel or vanilla one!

A: I don’t drink coffee – but I am loving Costa’s Strawberries and Cream coolers. Amazing.

5. Favourite fake tan?
C: I don’t normally fake tan, I’m happy with my ghost like skin. However, after actually going outside this year, I did get some dodgy tan marks that I used gradual tanners on to cover up. I tired the St Tropez Gradual Tan and the Nip + Fab 365 Body Glow Fix and was suprised/impressed with both of them.

A: Erm I don’t fake tan. I’m super pale/practically blue and the thought of slathering myself in something orange is just not appealing – esp as I have really orange hair.

6. Favourite summer song?
C: Obviously “Summertime” by Will Smith!

A:I love West Coast by Lana Del Rey

7. Favourite summer accessories?

C: My sunglasses and midi rings. I can’t wear necklaces/bracelets when I am hot as they irritate me!

A: My cat eye sunglasses – I never leave the house without them!

8. Favourite summer fragrance/perfume?
C: CKIN2U

A: Honey by Marc Jacobs

9. Summer book you’re loving?
C: I’m currently reading “Love in the Time of Cholera” by Gabriel Garcia Marquez. What is more Summery than love?!

A: I read The Rosie Project by Graeme Simsion whilst I was on holiday – it’s such a good read!

10. What are you most excited to do this summer?
Summer is almost over but we had a pretty fun time – we spent a weekend glamping (see the post here) and we are off to the #bloggersfest next week (ahhhhhhhh!). But we are also really excited about Winter, the woolly tights and knitted jumpers in particular. We have both been knitting over the last few weeks, with lessons from Annie’s mum so we will show you our progress soon!

We would like to tag An English Rose from Manchester, Jasmin Charlotte Lifestyle and milliemakeup Have fun girls! #twolittleowls
