I don’t know what it is about May, but I always seem to have a longer-than-usual wishlist around this time of the year. Maybe it is the new stock that makes its way into the shops due to the change in seasons or perhaps its just simply the birthday mood that gets me. Don’t get me wrong, I definitely won’t be adding everything above to cart and checking out. For me, it’s more about the growing online wishlist. Knowing there is a safe spot where I can keep an eye on everything that has drawn my attention. Some of these items aren’t even perfect (I’m looking for a smaller purse and have already bought these PJs which are similar but better than the ones above).
I have to say, everything looks so much more pleasing when grouped together. I can also see a strong theme taking shape.
So tell me, am I the only weirdo that still ads things to wishlists to keep an eye on them? I feel like in today’s fast-paced world, people have definitely become less patient and expect to own an item they like within 48 hours since they first laid eyes on it. I also notice that I am becoming increasingly impatient and often have to remind myself that everything can’t happen at lightning speed. For me, there definitely is something more rewarding about waiting, “stalking” and carefuly considering before finally pulling the trigger and purchasing something.
By now you should know me as a very considerate shopper – I rarely make impulse buys – but sometimes I just feel overwhelmed with a whole sea of things I’d like to home. This happenned to me on a recent visit to H&M, where I felt overwhelmed with things I want. I know it is not realistic for me to want them as I don’t need most of it, but as a nice theme evolved I thought I might as well share my beautiful wishlist with you! These would also make nice gifts, which is something to consider with wedding season approaching.
Time for another monthly favourites, this time only one day late (it is the small victories). I thought I’d once again corral together everything I’m looking forward to this month, with a few things of next month as I don’t know wheter I’ll have time to blog so close to my wedding!
The wedding is the main reason why my month will be filled with peonies, gold glitter and lots of tulle! I feel like I should break into song, “…these are a few of my favourite things.” But I’ll save your ears.
Eeeek! The H&M South African website launched and I’m loving being able to browse online just ahead of their shop opening in October in South Africa (which kinda sucks as it will be our post-wedding, financial low – but who cares!?) And what is even better is that they are not only going to bring their super affordable clothes to our shores, by the look of it they will also bring their homeware!
Price wise I can confirm that it is very much in line with what I paid in Europe last summer. In fact, the exact dress I bought in Italy, dress nr 6 with butterfly sleeves (which is awesome by the way!), retails for R399* online and I paid slightly more. On the site denims retail from R150* to R450* and homeware starts from as little as R60*! Quality wise I’d compare them to Cotton On.
So without further adieu, here are some of my favourite things! I’d like them all please and thank you!
