Weekly Wish List

A new feature to 'The Key Pieces' is my weekly wish list. A few items that have caught my eye in the world wide web and I now need them in my life.

1. Miss Selfridge: Mono printed trousers - £35.00
I am loving loose (thin material) fitting trousers that go in at the ankles, no baggy linen trousers for me this summer. They are smart enough for work, casual enough for socialising and keep me cool in the heat wave we seem to be having at the moment. These trousers fit the bill and I really like the patten.

2. Amazon: Fifty Shades of Kale - £13.30
Towards the end of last year I started to eat more Kale and with a title that is very simular to the extremely popular book, who am I to say no? I can't wait to get my hands on this book and be inspired to try the many more ways to enjoy Kale.

3. Alex Monroe: Baby Bee Necklace, silver - £114.00
From a young age I have had a fasanation with bee's, I would spend hours in the garden watching them dance from flower to flower until they had collected enough pollen to take back to their hive. That interest has followed me into my adult years and I believe it is so important to protect the bee's that visit our gardens and local area. To find out more, click here.

4. NARS: Kuala Lumpur, duo eyeshadow - £25.00
This duo makes me think summer. The 'Rose Gold' and 'Boysendberry infused with Gold' would look great on their own or mixed together to add more depth and dramatic evening look.

5. Topshop: Whippie, wedges - £45.00
I love these wedges and need them in my life! I have had my current wedges for years and love them (I think they were from 'Faith'), but the time has come, that I need to part from them, they are looking worn and old, the straps won't last much longer and they need to go into retirement. So, my heart skipped a beat when I saw these on the Topshop website, They are perfect and I just have to have them (we have all had those moments) but low and behold.... they are sold out in size 3! The story of my life, the curse of having small feet! The shoes I fall in love with (it happens more often than not) are never destined to be mine, because of my small feet! I'll spend the next X amount of time, clicking refresh and checking the stock in my local store. They will be mine.... Please make this happen Topshop!
