April Wishlist

As the days are getting longer, I'm becoming more drawn to bright happy prints. Here are some of my faves:

1.) Ghost T Shirt | Merrimaking
This isn't the printiest of prints but I enjoy how effective a couple of blobs on a white t shirt can be. Our mind instantly recognises the ghoulish intention. I must admit though, my main reason for choosing this particular T is the fact you can lift it over your head for an impromptu Halloween costume. (Maybe minus the hairy man tummy)

2.) Sprinkles Earrings | Benu Shop
You may have noticed me sharing the Benu love on social media lately. I went through a spate of pinning their items a while ago, but then they kind of went off my radar. Having just been reminded of the brand, I am desperate to own approximately 99% of their items.

3.) Embroidered Collar | Lorena Maranon
I have recently been really intrigued by everything embroidered and Lorena Maranon's pieces all have a geometric, vibrant quality but I also love the looser patterns like on this collar. I also have my eye on this necklace. I defy you to come up with a description!

4.) Atomic Print Phone Case | Vivid Please
I've been coveting these amazing atomic print cases since Vicky from Vivid Please gave me a sneak peek a while ago. Available for the iPhone, like every other amazing phone case, I am seriously envious with my Samsung piece of junk. Roll on October and my upgrade!

5.) Denture Dress | Lazy Oaf
This one needs no description. Candy colours and pictures of dentures- what's not to love? I have been struggling to move on from my go-to fried egg images but I'm starting to think this is the way. Old people props? Totally works for me!

Wishlist, favourite things, Somewhere Nowhere striped dress, Robin Eisenberg illustrated wall clock, holographic swimsuit Batoko, The Small Print eye phone case, cat brooch, SousSous

1.) Pink Stripe Dress | Somewhere Nowhere
I've been a little bit obsessed with Somewhere Nowhere ever since spotting Emma of Archer Avenue wearing their Boo Mesh dress on Instagram. To be honest, the ghost dress is the one I'm really dreaming off but sadly it's not on their site anymore (please bring it back!). They also just relocated from London to Hong Kong. My brand loving timing sucks but luckily they still ship worldwide and they're new Spring/ Summer collection is pretty dreamy too. This fabulous dress makes me think of striped sweetie bags, which is always a good thing.

2.) Wall Clock | Robin Eisenberg
I've been loving Robin Eisenberg's colourful and sassy illustrations for a while. When I found out things featuring her illustration could be purchased via Society 6 it was a rather happy day. The wall clocks are my favourite. All homes should have a clock, right? Practical and damn pretty. An Addicted to Love shower curtain would also be rather fabulous and would make singing in the shower even more enjoyable.

3.) Holographic Swimsuit | Batoko
Last week saw Scotland enjoying a little bought of fine weather. This got me excited for summer, which in turn got me excited about summer clothing and then led me to scour the internet for the most awesome swimwear I could find. Turns out most of them can be found on the Batoko website, including this eye catching holographic one piece.

4.) Eye Pattern Phone Case | The Small Print
I got a new phone last month so have been searching for a suitably interesting case for it. Choices of case for my old mobile were approximately zero to none so it's nice to actually be able to shop for one. While my Samsung number is not quite as well catered for as an iPhone, I did manage to find a pretty wide selection. This eye print is right up my street and is now number one on my case list.

5.) Brooch | SousSous
How adorably weird is this brooch?! I absolutely love it. So sweet but also a little strange, always a good combination in my book. These pretties come in a variety of colourways and designs. The black star crossed version also caught my eye.
