It’s that wonderful time of the year…

Well, for me at least. May is my birthday month. I love birthdays. Not for the presents, but for the people, the food, the celebrating. It’s just really nice to be able to sit down with the people you care about, share a meal or a chat, and just have a good time. Sometimes this isn’t always easy to accomplish other days of the year cos, life.

I put wishlists together because it’s one way to document to myself what I’m wanting, and if people want to get me something, this gives them a clear idea. I love receiving other people’s wishlists – it makes life so much easier! (I love gift giving!)

So here is my little list. I only wish I didn’t have such expensive taste!

Lamelle Recharge CE Complex – R760
Leigh from Lipgloss is my life gave this a rave review and I trust her opinion big time. Have you seen her skin? When I saw her blog post, I knew I needed this!

Smashbox Always On eyeliner (colour: Fishnet) – R275
The girls from All Dolled Up always talk about this! To this day I have not found an eyeliner that stays on my water line. I hope this does. A wonderful friend bought me this and so far… I’m so impressed!

La Source Exfoliating Body Scrub – R400
La Source is one of my favourite “rich-girl” scents, and scrubs are my favourite body product. Put two together? Oh yes! To be honest, anything from this range would be super dreamy!

Lancome Monsieur Big Mascara – R360
Allana Davison has *THE most* amazing eyelashes and she loves this stuff. I’m all about the voluminous lashes, so sign me up! Also received this as a gift. I haven’t cracked it open yet!

Physicians Formula Eye Booster Eyeliner (colour: Ultra black) – R200
Can be found at Dischem. It has a brush nib. What more could you want?

Eyeshadow base – depends on the brand
So many brands do this. Wet n Wild (R129) has one, as does Smashbox (R292) and Urban Decay (R330). I’ve recently hit the end of the one I’ve been using.

Lush It’s Raining Men Shower Gel – R175/R295
I put this on my list every year because it is my absolute favourite. Dirty Springwash is another option (it’s minty). I got Springwash and It’s Raining Men! So spoilt!

Urban Decay Essential Eye Tool – R260
Seriously random as well, but this is like the only brand that I can find that has the comb AND spooley. I found tons with one or the other. I was using one by Beautique but I haven’t been able to repurchase because it’s never available at Edgars. Maybe discontinued? I use this every day.

By sea-girls wreathed with seaweed red and brown
Till human voices wake us, and we drown."
