Want It Wednesday | 19th July

I’m loving all this sunny weather, although I’ve heard it’s set to cool down over the coming week (nooooooooo) – I’m clinging to the hope that the sun will return and stay or a good few months, this out of this world Marrakech ‘Hola Bag’ has my name all over it – and it’s totally mum friendly with all that space, surely a pre present for the impending summer holidays!

Talking of things that scream Rosie, there’s no words that will do justice to these Gucci Aces Studded Leather Sneaker – yes they are nearly £600, yes they don’t seem too practical for the school run but can you imagine me running round in these – I would literally look like my heels were on fire, and i don’t mean in a blister way!

Wth my birthday at the end of August, now is the time I start looking out for a birthday celebration outfit, I’m queen of the dresses so it’s an obvious choice. Imagine me cyber surprise when Boohoo e-mailed me the launch of their Premium collection and the Louise Tassel Bodycon Dress, I’m interested to see how their premium collection grows and if their sizing will become less fast fashion and more realistic. But for now this dress would be perfect with a killer tan and is Instagram worthy.

Keeping with the theme of dresses, is this surprising choice for me, the Dandelion Maxi Dress from Oasis – now I’m not usually one for floaty maxi dresses but this just looks so versatile; its straps also mean that it’s boob proof… winner!

I can’t claim any credit for my next want, this beauty cult is a firm favourite of Huda Beauty’s and if it’s good enough for the queen of beauty then it’s good enough for me, the Mizon Apple Smoothie Peeling Gel is super affordable and the results online look great, I’m all about the miracles for my tired face.

Talking of cult products, you’d have to be living under a rock for most of the noughties to not have been caught up in the Lancôme Juicy Tubes frenzy; they were sticky and bright and akin to a Venus fly trap for long hair. Fast forward a decade and a half and Lancôme Juicy Tubes have grown up, no longer the winner of stickiest substance to put on your lips, the lip colours are the best of both worlds with pigment from lipstick to the sheer lightness of lip gloss and balm; this summery pink is perfect for day to night and means you can get away with packing just one lip colour for holiday.

I was alarmingly restrained in the Zara sale, only buying bits for Boo so it’s with welcome arms that I welcome the AW17 collection that’s just dropped online; the collection seems to be about loose separates that come together to create effortless off duty looks, and this Zara top with bow detail is the perfect example of how tailoring can be relaxed without being baggy just for the sake of it. This colour gets it right when striking the balance between granny and girlie.

Happy Wanting!
