More things for Autumn

So clearly I can’t stop planning for Autumn and Winter. Seriously I keep seeing things that I want/need to own. Why is there so much great stuff in the shops and why haven’t I won the lottery so that I can treat myself? Maybe I should just not go near shops or online at all and then I wouldn’t see all these things. But then life would be boring and it’s nice to dream and look at even if you can’t do anything more than give each item a quick stroke or longing look before walking past. On the plus side it is not too long now until Christmas so at least when people ask me what I want I will have a ready made list (or two) to go to! Anyway here’s my latest loves, be warned it’s highly likely that you will see a lot more of these over the coming months, I girl can but dream right!
Lau's Autumn Wishlist
Check Skirt, Fat Face / Kissing Stags Cushion, Anorak
Cable Knit socks, Joules / Mini Bow Ring, Kate Spade / Chevron Throw, BHS
 Padlock Tote Bag, M&S / Fairisle Cardigan, Fat Face / Riding Boots, M&S
Fluffy socks and blankets, plus fairisle knits? I’ve found my own little piece of heaven right here in this post. Isn’t that what the cold weather is all about? Although I’m not sure I would ever spend £25 on a pair of socks. It may be time to fetch out the knitting needles and get practicing my cable.
Also I am so tempted by the boots, I’ve been searching for the perfect pair for ages and ages and then I found these and they fit perfectly around the calves – miracles of miracles. But can I really spend £99 on boots? I know that so reasonable for riding boots but I still sort of balk at that price tag. Hmmm, watch this space because honestly these are my favourite thing on this whole board of beautiful things.
Okay one final thing about these lovely things. The ring – the Kate Spade ring. I am obsessed with it and yes while it isn’t officially autumnal or wintery (yes, I know that#s not a real word) I love love love it. It’s an obsession. Hence the inclusion. What can I say, I’m a sucker for shiny things with bows! Plus I want a ring for my middle finger on my left hand and this just grabbed my attention straight away. This is definitely making it’s way onto my Christmas list.
What bits and bobs have you all got your eye on? Tell me please, although don’t make them too lovely otherwise I will need them too!

Post birthday wishlist

Why is it that as soon as Christmas or my birthday is over I suddenly find lots of things that I want need to own? It’s not like I wasn’t actively looking for new things to add to my birthday list at least a full month before the big day hit. Yet suddenly come April 13th I’m seeing lovely bits everywhere. This is doubley a shame as I have earmarked my birthday money for a new dress for a party next month. Yay for me and the party, but nay for me allowing myself to buy any of the items below!

Dog jumper – Floral satchelScalloped cross body bagCandy Stripe scarf

Earrings – GiletButterfly top – Inferno – Six Years

Yes it seems I’ve also gone a bit made on the Tesco website – a jumper, two bags and a scarf! – but I’m simply loving the Florence and Fred range at the moment. Because really, when you can get a gorgeous bag for £10 and a summery scarf for £5, what’s not to love? I only wish there was a Tesco store that had a clothes section nearby, I much prefer physical shopping over online shopping.

The earrings are from Fat Face, a shop I haven’t been in for ages until recently when I wandered in while killing time around Covent Garden and I was sold hook, line and sinker. Plus I love the colour of that gilet and the butterfly pattern on that top – if only it wasn’t white though as there’s no way I can buy it. We all know I’ll manage to drop tomato pips down myself the first time I wear it!

Then there’s all the books that I’ve just discovered exist. How did I not realise that these were out? Clearly I need to spend some more time in bookshops! There’s the latest Dan Brown, Harlen Coben and some David Baldacci titles that I’ve not read. Plus let’s not forget the latest Jodi Picoult book and I need to read the rest of The Game of Thrones series from Book 3 onwards.
