THB MONTHLY WANTS: MAY
As a teenager, I used to say shopping was my cardio. It’s a miracle that my weight hasn’t tripled since online shopping became such a big thing, but maybe that’s because my heart rate still goes up a ton when I see shoes I like, in person or on screen – I don’t discriminate. Every month, I’ll be sharing a few of the things I’m (not so) secretly eyeing in this series called “MONTHLY WANTS”. Everyone feel free to pick any of these and send them to my address – HA!
1- Aviator Sunglasses: First, I need to preface this by saying that I'm not a huge sunglasses girl. I have one pair now, they're Kate Spade aviators, and I love them. But for some reason, I have a hard time finding glasses that I love. These ones, being aviators, are within my comfort zone. But I love the tortoise shell inspired motif, as it feels a little different from the usual aviator frames. These ones are also super affordable (and on sale!) and they would be a great addition to my "collection".
2- Pineapple Fairy Lights: In the last few weeks, we started really working hard on our balcony space. We bought patio furniture, comfy cushions, a shitton of plants... And our balcony really looks like a little corner of paradise now. The only thing that's missing is some lighting for nighttime. I really love the round fairy lights, but everyone and their grandmothers have the same old basic design. These little pineapple ones are so f*cking cute, cheap as hell, and... They're F*CKING PINEAPPLES!!! Isn't that amazing?! You guys know I'm crazy for pineapple accessories (and fruit in general). Or at least you've seen my little pineapple purse or my pineapple loafers. Now I'll add pineapple fairy lights to my crazy pineapple lady resume.
3- Eyelet Top: For some reason, I'm REALLY into eyelet this season. I'm so glad it's making a comeback! To me, it's the epitome of sexy and flirty, yet demure. You know, sometimes, the more innocent you look, the crazier they go. I won't be pairing this with frilly white socks, but rather a festive summer mini or denim shorts, to switch things up a little. I love that you can dress it up or down so much, depending on what you pair it with. I'm also a really big fan of Emily, the woman behind the brand, so I'm more than happy to give her my money, ha!
4- Glamglow Waterburst: So I recently tested this moisturizer for last Beauty Wednesday (read it here) and well... I won't go into extensive details here, because I already did a full review. Suffice to say it is now on my wish list.
5- Leather & Suede Handbag: I've talked about it before: I'm a huge sucker for Chloé handbags. My teenage dream was a python Paraty and at this point in life, I just love them all equally. This bag is actually not Chloé, it's See by Chloé, which is the less expensive line of the same brand. I have another bag from the line, and I have to say, I love it and it held up pretty damn well. I'm totally in love with this one, because it still very much represents the Chloé aesthetic, without the hefty price tag.
6- Cacti iPhone Case: On top of pineapples, I also love flamingoes and cacti. My current phone case is covered in flamingoes and tropical leaves, but it's really starting to fall apart. So I figured, out with the old, in with the cacti.
7- Pink Felt Rancher Hat: I only recently learned what a rancher hat was. From my understanding, it's like if a cowboy hat and a wide rim hat had a love child. Not gonna lie, I'm a big fan of the hybrid. I tried this one on at the store and I absolutely LOVED IT. I love that it's pink too, as most hats are usually neutrals or black. This one brings such a great summer vibe, I'm really considering getting it.
8- Luna Sleeping Oil: It's no secret by now that I'm OBSESSED with Sunday Riley's products. I reviewed the U.F.O. face oil, along with the acne fighting kit here, and I've been talking about it non-stop since then. It's magical, and it's completely changed my skin. I've been looking more into the brand, and I've even ordered Good Genes. But I've heard amazing thing about the Luna sleeping oil, and it's definitely one of the next things I'll be ordering from Sephora.
9- Mesh Bed Canopy: I've recently been told that I made our apartment look like an Urban Outfitters. I'm not sure if that's a compliment, but it's definitely how I choose to see it, ha! Because truth be told, it might be a little basic, but I LOVE their home line and that's the exact boho-queen-meets-acid-lounge I was going for LOL. Please don't question my inspiration sources. Since we live in a tiny studio, the fact that we don't have an official bedroom kinda bugs me sometimes. And even though is is a far stretch from actual walls, I fell like it would create a more "private" space, without making the place look a lot smaller, like a divider screen would.
So these are all my monthly wants for May. Hope you guys feel as inspired as I am. Feel free to share what YOU'RE coveting with me. You can either leave me a comment below, or get in touch on Instagram!
Hope you guys are having a kick-ass Monday, and I wish you all a GREAT week!
Love, Jenny xx
