The Lust-Have List

Thanks to the interwebs, online shopping and really nice PR peeps who send things, I have discovered a whole bunch of things that would make the world a better place - if they were in my wardrobe, on my bathroom shelf and on my feet. Below I give you my lust-have list. A collection of items I really, really want, have fallen in love with and will be becoming obsessed with shortly.

I'm like a magpie so anything shiny makes me smile. Considering I cannot run around dropping glitter bombs on people, I'd like to bring some sparkle with this awesome vest from Sissy Boy. It's just the right amount of metallics without verging on tacky and paired with the right jeans and blazer, haute damn!

One of my favourite smells has to be lemongrass. It relaxes me and makes me think of all those awesome massages I had in Thailand. Now I have lemongrass candles, room spray and some of that burny oil shizz but that hasn't stopped me from wanting this lemongrass and juniper berry skin body butter from Body Thrills. The best bit? They're having a special where you get 30% off for a limited time. So hurry and click click click!

With winter around the corner, there's always a need to layer and bulk up. Unless of course you're me. Don't get me wrong I love a good coat but living in Cape Town I don't always feel the need for it. Five minutes on and I'm sweating and cannot wait to get it off. But give me a jacket and I'm ready to go. I've always been weary of leather jackets, afraid I'll end up looking like I was an extra in The Matrix but then I saw this beauty from Lipsy. Hello lover!

Ah animal print. I'm so scared of trying it out. Probably because I've seen visions of older women in only animal print and it worries me I'll also start looking like a 40-something divorcee with bad roots and ciggie-stained teeth. So I'm trying to incorporate it slowly into my wardrobe. Like recently I bought a leopard print scarf which hasn't made it out of the bag yet and I might even venture out to get a cute pair of pumps. But what I really want and have no idea if I could pull off are these booties from Asos.

Fashion Fairy Godmother, if you're out there, please help.

Ex-Oh! Ex-Oh!


  1. Great list. I just got myself some Body Thrills goodies today. I've been lusting after their cupcake and chocolate ranges. :)

  2. Dear Skinny's Fairy Godmother - I would like the Sparkly vest from Sissy Boy please... no! I NEED that vest.




Whoop! There It Is!
