How the heck is it my birthday on Wednesday? Why is my favourite month of the year going so quickly? Answers on a postcard please. In true birthday month fashion April has been a knock out – Craig and I celebrated our first anniversary in spectacular fashion last weekend and I was well and truly bowled over by my paper gift, two tickets to see Ed Sheeran and a nights stay in Manchester! Seeing Ed Sheeran and Adele are on my bucket list so I can’t believe I’ve now ticked one off – as I imagined Ed was fantastic and we had the best time together in Manchester as a twosome, something that rarely happens. We also got to enjoy a meal at Losehill House, our wedding venue to commemorate one year since the big day – the views and food are epic so it was amazing to go back, dine and reminisce.
So with my birthday right around the corner I thought it was fitting (and almost traditional) to compile a list of items I’m coveting right now – in all honesty I’ve been making a few purchases here and there because who doesn’t do that when it’s nearly your birthday? One seasonal updater I’m drawn to right now is sandals – I’m all for things being mixed up when it comes to footwear and this mustard fringed pair truly rein supreme, yellow seems to be everywhere this season and I for one ain’t complaining. Whistles are forever pulling it out of the bag with their collections and this Spring Summer is no exception, I’d be lying if I said these are the only two pieces that have caught my eye. Red is another colour I can’t avoid right now so I doubt it’ll come as any surprise that I’m coveting the Princetown loafers. The only real designer pair of shoes I’ve ever bought are my wedding Choos so when it’s time to introduce an everyday pair I’m sure it’ll be these #loafersforlife.
Of course it wouldn’t be one of my lust lists without something for the home, we’ve got big plans in the pipeline so naturally I’m dreaming of home decor pieces for days – I love the mix of mint green, pink and gold, so much so that it was our overall colour scheme at our wedding. Finally I’ve got to mention that straw bag, I’ve seen it all over Instagram but I can’t help thinking it’d make the perfect holiday bag or even here bag, especially when teamed with the is it a dress or an all in one jumpsuit from Topshop which could just be the dream outfit for my actual birthday.
What are you coveting right now?
