Hey my lovelies
So was just doing a spot of browsing/shopping online for "Others..my other half siblings etc" and mid shopping I just realised I never did a "What's in my basket" for this month. It also dawned on me, that I have the most expensive taste, actually I lie, I've always had expensive taste, just not a big enough bank account...
So I was trigger happy with the add/buy button on all websites...(actually the majority are below)...its so much fun pretending you're loaded and adding the most ridiculously expensive clothes/shoes/jewellery into a basket. (I went a bit easy with this post as I don't think anyone could afford something in their €1000's..well me anyway)..in fact the quote below sums it up nicely..my better half throws confused looks across my way when I erupt in laughter at spontaneous moments..I think he thinks I'm gone mad..he'd definitely think it, if he saw the total price totted up in my online shopping basket!
So on that note lets get started...(excited tone) this is so much fun! I love doing this type of post...
As you know I have a serious Girl crush on the lady above..Love the makeup range she did for Ciate, very classy packaging and gorgeous colours, I definitely have this in my basket & on my wishlist..think I'll be placing these images around the house for the next few weeks for Hubbie..poor man he's broke already..hair's gone grey from me haha! Top left; The Smoldering Eye palette €39 in Arnotts or available online here, The cheekbone cheat bronzer blusher duo in Seaside Park €28, Lipstick Satin Kiss Velveteen, €22, Smokey Suedes eye palette €39 again all these products are available in Arnotts or Stockist details here, and online here
I'm a magpie seriously love all things sparkly, even my wedding dress had sparkle in it, I remember asking my mother when I tried it on did I look like a Christmas tree haha!! So here's my current favourite sparkly bits Top left: Dress in Vanilla Boutique (025 33000) and they have a wine version too..also available in Bow and Pearl (01) 4967408 €165, adore this virgos Lounge dress €165.

Adore these Miss KG heels, my sister Jill has them and they are amazing €90 available in Debenhams here.
Can never resist Jewellery particularly Michael Kors.I used to own a piece a long time ago but I had the misfortune of breaking my lovely Michael Kors Bracelet and watching the balls scatter all across Dunnes Stores floor! Wasn't pretty, having said that it was an elastic flimsy type band with balls on it and the MK disc(expensive mind!) so maybe avoid that type of bracelet as the elastic wears very easily! But these ones are definitely on my list Top left to Right MK Rose Gold earrings €69, Michael Kors Tortoise Shell Belt Bracelet €119, MK belt bracelet €99, MK Crystal Bangle €149, MK Cubic Zirconia Padlock Bracelet €129, Silver Diamonte Earrings €69, and MK Disc Chain €99.

A Brown Thomas splurge has to be done...It is a wishlist after all..now there was plenty of dresses I would only love from here mainly in their thousands but I will never have the cash to spend that kind of money on a dress...so although its a splurge list above, its not too bad really considering what I could buy haha! Top left to right Three Floor Dress €275 (love these dresses, live in the one I have ..size up girls as the sizing is small) buy it here, Centre dress is amazing love halterneck's and this is so me, price is €340 and you can buy it here.
