New Year, New... Everything!? | A Wishlist

One of the things I always find in the first few weeks of a new year, is the overwhelming urge to throw away all my accumulated junk and replace tired, worn items with shiny new pieces! Obviously this would be very wasteful, not to mention impractical, particularly when I'm meant to be saving up for a car... That doesn't mean there aren't a handful of pieces I've got my eye on, though! From knitwear through to notebooks, here are a few things I'd love to freshen up every aspect of my life.
New Year, New... Everything!? Wishlist
Dark Romance Rule Leather Notebook, Paperchase, £15
GOSH Forever Eyeshadows in BlueGreenLight Copper & Plum, Superdrug, £5.99 each
How seriously warm and snuggly does the Aida Knit from Blue Vanilla look?! Christmas may have been and gone but I'm pretty sure it's getting colder as the weeks pass, and I'm finding I need more and more layers to survive the trek to work, so this cosy jumper would be a lovely addition - and it's reduced in the sale, bonus! I absolutely adore the Dark Romance design from Paperchase, and whilst there is no argument whatsoever to be made that I need any more notebooks, I still think this would make a lovely addition to my desk (figuratively speaking, as I'm currently operating from the top bunk in my bedroom at my parents house!). I recently bought one of the GOSH Eyeshadow Sticks in the shade 'Beige' and have found it super easy to wear; it's a beautiful, bright shade that I can apply in seconds, and it lasts so well on my oily lids without any creasing or transfer. There are some lovely shades in the range, but I love the look of these four! Washi tape cannot be described as an essential by any stretch of the imagination but it's just so pretty and there are some really beautiful designs available at the moment; I'm pretty sure I could write a wishlist consisting exclusively of washi tapes! I love the look of mercury glass and candles are a must-have, especially in winter, for creating a warm and cosy atmosphere; what better way to combine the two than this gorgeous Anthropologie candle? I'm not sure what use I'd find for this pretty chest from Matalan - maybe I could re-organise my make-up into it!? I've been feeling in need of a little make-up storage shake-up for the past few months... I've read so many good things about Bee Good, I do see myself trying some of their products this year and the Honey & Propolis cleanser sounds beautiful. Accessorize have some beautiful, delicate pieces in at the moment; I treated myself to a set of stacking rings last week, but I love the simplicity of this triangle cut-out ring. And, finally, these cosy-looking bootie style slippers are reduced at New Look and would be just the ticket for keeping my feet warm until summer gets here!!
Do you get the craving for new things in the new year? Do you like the look of any of the pieces I've picked out here? Have you treated yourself to anything new and lovely?
