Monthly Must-Haves #8


Selfridges Beauty Advent Calendar | Giorgio Armani Luminous Silk Foundation | Adidas Grey Sweater (via Topshop) | Nude Converse | MAC ‘Honeylove’ | Urban Decay Chill Makeup Setting Spray | New Look Perspex Heel Loafer

Damn Claire, back at it again with the totally unrealistic list of things you want but can’t afford.

This month’s must-haves are all about me gearing up for Christmas. So first of all, I of course would love one of the many beauty advent calendars that are out this year. There are tons of brand specific ones around including Charlotte Tilbury and Kiehl’s, but I think one of the more general ones such as the Selfridges Beauty Advent Calendar could be a bit more exciting. Regardless of my opinions though, I think I’ll be lucky to get a Celebrations advent calendar tbh, so let’s move swiftly on.

Autumn/winter always sees me wanting to switch up my makeup, and the latest foundation on my hit list is the Luminous Silk Foundation from Giorgio Armani. For some reason I always fancy more of a glowy finish as opposed to matte as it gets colder (if the sun won’t shine, then my face will), and this one is raved about loads in the blogging community. Due to the weather doing whatever the hell it wants – and some INTENSE heating at work – my makeup hasn’t been lasting brilliantly at the moment and so the Urban Decay Setting Spray has also creeped back onto my wishlist. Finally makeup-wise, would this even be one of my Monthly Must-Have posts if it didn’t include a MAC nude lipstick? My collection will never be complete.

Onto the fash-un bits I’m craving this month, the top spot is most definitely owned by the new nude Converse range. Exclusive to Office, these limited edition pairs are SO gorgeous and I keep thinking of a million outfits they will go with. Another pair of shoes I desperately want are some heeled loafers for work, as I’ve finally accepted that my beloved lace-up shoes have to be put away until Spring (unless I want to lose my toes, which I don’t really). FINALLY, I actually picked this Adidas jumper up at the weekend but it still makes this list as I had been lusting over it for literal months. It was a must-have that I now have – that’s the dream, yasss?

What are you all lusting over this month? Let me know in the comments!

    I absolutely love the Luminous Silk foundation. It photographs so beautifully, and gives me a flawless look! I love the silky, satin finish.

    You know, I’ve managed to steer clear of the whole beauty advent calendar thing but that Selfridges one looks SWEET. Great range of brands and a great price – for what you’re getting. Assuming anyone can justify spending £65 on themselves at the end of November… 😉
