2014 Wishlist

A few weeks before the New Year I was thinking about 2014 and what I want to achieve. I realised that with the completion of my degree, hopefully getting a job, and aiming to start a Youtube channel, it's going to be a pretty huge year for me! During 2013, blogging has become a lovely hobby for me, and I want to continue that through 2014. I've found myself wanting a lot of things which will help me with blogging and starting Youtube, so here they are:



1. A Macbook Pro. My boyfriend and I were lucky enough to receive the 'Youtuber' camera, the Cannon EOS 600D for Christmas, and my poor old laptop is simply not up to editing the amazing photos and HD videos you can get from it! I've wanted to convert to the world of Apple for years, and I feel like this is the year to invest (especially since I will get the student discount!)
2. Soft-Boxes. Since getting the gorgeous 600D, I've been teaching myself about 3 point lighting, and want to get two soft-boxes to help achieve this for photos and videos.
3. Ikea Malm Dressing Table. My makeup storage situation is getting way out of hand, and I've been wanting a nice dressing table that also includes storage for a long time. It will also provide a nice surface for taking blog photos, and potentially a Youtube backdrop as well! This 'wish' also kind of includes entirely redoing the spare room in my house since the plan is to move in there when I return home after completing my degree! My little bedroom at the moment is teeny and would not fit the desk or soft-boxes!
4. Liz Earle Cleanse and Polish. I can't believe I haven't tried this cult blogger product yet! 2014 will be the year I include this in my skincare routine!

I'm going to be saving really hard this year to afford these things! What's on your wishlist for this year?

  1. I've yet to try the Liz Earle Cleanse and Polish too, however the Ultimelt from Soap & Glory is very similar (according to many bbloggers) - and much more cost effective! I've been using it for about 3 months and I love it :)
    PS. I love your blog and your design is amazing! Hopefully you can take a peek at mine when you have a few spare minutes - danielascribbles.blogspot.co.uk

    1. Just make sure you regularly back up important documents and then it doesn't matter too much when it does finally die!

  17. The C&P - I have tried Liz Earle, and I've tried the Superdrug ones. I've repurchased the Superdrug one because they work just as well AND smell a lot nicer for £10 cheaper! It's worth trying both to decide for yourself :)
