Asos sale - my top picks!

We all know that I love spending my money on the Asos website, but one thing I love even more is spending my money in an Asos sale! I've just made myself a naughty little order, but I thought I would share with you guys some of my top picks from the website, as I have just spent a couple of hours browsing through it! :)

Thanks for reading :)

Wednesday Wishlist #24 - Download festival!

This weekend I'm off to Download festival and I cannot wait! I may have already purchased a couple of these things (they're totally necessary for the festival), but I do have lots of lovely clothes already to wear! There are so many amazing bands playing this year and I can't wait for a long weekend of sun, beer and chilling with friends! Is anyone else off to Download this year? If not, which festivals are you off to? :)

The Lair Leather Jeff Buckley Bag - £293.92
I have been obsessed with this bag ever since I laid eyes on it. Okay so realistically you wouldn't want to take it to a festival with you as it would probably get ruined, but I may have to treat myself to it on a payday soon! I love the Western feel with silver concho detailing - gimmie gimmie gimmie!

Regal Rose Night Chant Coin Suede Necklace - £24.00 
How gorgeous is this necklace?! I have lots of lovely silver necklaces already to layer up for Download, and this black suede one would be a perfect addition to my collection. It goes so perfectly with the bag and belt too!

Topshop Embroidered Square Neck Crop Top - £22.00
I go through stages of being obsessed with Topshop and then avoiding them for a while as their stuff can be quite expensive, but then I find a little gem like this and it makes me remember why I love Topshop again. It's a lovely simple little piece and I love the embroidered details.

Asos Black Ornate Jet Stone Belt - £18.00 
I've actally already bought this belt - I put it in my Asos basket the second I saw it! I've been after a Western or concho style belt for months now, and this is the first non-vintage/non-sold out one I've found!

Sienna X Instant Bronzing Gel - £12.00 
I've been after a good fake tan to use regularly and I've heard a lot of good things about Sienna X recently. Have you ever tried their products? They don't break the bank so I'm definitely going to give them a go! :) Also, do you know of any fake tans that would be particularly good for a festival? It would have to last a few days, not get streaky in rain etc!

New Look White Leather Ankle Strap Sandals - £24.99
I need some new sandals for Summer and these are so simple, yet so lovely. They might not be perfect for Download (the forecast includes lots of rain) but they'd be a great little pair of shoes for the rest of the Summer!

River Island Felt Oversize Fedora Hat - £28.00
Last Summer I got brave enough to start wearing fedora style hats... this Summer should I get brave enough to wear oversized fedora hats?! You can never have too many black floppy felt hats, can you?

Topshop Cherie Cateye Sunglasses - £18.00
Okay so I probably don't need another pair of sunglasses, but I don't have a cateye pair yet, and these are sooo gorgeous! :) I love the intricate little floral detailing in the corner of the frames too!
Dixi Sacred Moon Ring - £28.00 / Dixi Night Wall Fiery Labradorite Ring - £28.00
I've been a fan of Shop Dixi jewellery as long as I can remember, and each collection they bring out is even more gorgeous! I wanna end up with two hands full of their intricate silver and gem rings!

New Look Black Jersey Flared Trousers - £9.99
I've been after a pair of black flares for a little while now and I can't believe how cheap these are! You can wear them all year around - with a leather jacket and fur scarf during the Winter and with an embroidered crop top in the Summer! What are your opinion on flares? At first I wasn't sure, but now I love them! :)

Sunday summary #13

Helloooo! Yet again I can't believe how quickly Sunday has come around and that I have work again tomorrow. I've had a super busy weekend though including Graduate Fashion Week, catching up with old friends and a house party. I'm a bit back-logged with blog posts (I've taken the photos but haven't blogged yet as I've been SO busy) so this post is a little bit of a catch up and preview of what's to come! :)

 Since starting my job I've been treating myself to lots of new beauty products and it's making me want to write lots of beauty blog posts to share my finds! The first of many I recently wrote was my top 5 Mac lipsticks blog posts, let me know what your favourite shade is!
I've recently re-found my love for the Studio Ghibli movies. Spirited Away has always been one of my favourite movies ever but I hadn't watched any of them in so long, it's good to watch them again!
I've decorated my room with these lovely polaroid instagram prints by using the app Printic. You can get £4 off using the code '1D0F1F' :)

 Since starting my new job I've been working in some local areas to my hometown that I'd never really visited before. Who knew Hertfordshire had so many gorgeous floral pubs and hidden canal-side treasures?!
For my auntie's birthday, me and all the ladies in my family went to a gorgeous French restaurant in London called Zedel. The food and atmosphere was incredible, I shall be writing a blog post about it soon!

How gorgeous are these pieces I bought from Waiste Vintage?! Paisley print, mandala print and a gorgeous lantern - what more could you want?!
I'm so happy to have Game of Thrones back on my screen! What have you thought of this series?
This weekend me and my best friend are off to Download festival - I am so excited! Anyone else going too?!

I was lucky enough to get some last minute tickets to the Harry Potter studios recently and it was so good! I'd been once before when my boyfriend used to work there but I don't think I really appreciated how good it was! My favourite bit was Diagon Alley, the steam train and riding on the broom! :)
I've eventually got around to start editing my 100's of videos, and the most recent one I've uploaded is my holiday in Amsterdam, I miss it so much! You can watch it here :)

My lovely friend works in a cake shop and they needed a hand working their new coffee machine, so I swapped my barista skills for some gorgeous cupcakes - what a good trade! I now have a constant craving for red velvet, chocolate orange and oreo cupcakes!
Last weekend I had the most amazing time at GFW! I saw loads of my fashion friends that I hadn't seen since our GFW show, and the year below did an incredible job - so any gorgeous designs. (Yet again, video coming soon - make sure you're subscribed to my channel to see it!)

I literally cannot believe how gorgeous Caitlyn is. I saw this image pop up three times on my instagram timeline before I realised who it was, and she looks so similar to Jessica Lange (a fave of mine from American Horror Story), amazing!
I eventually treated myself to Nars Sheer Glow foundation this week and my gosh, I definitely understand the hype now! I'll get a full review up on the blog soon :)
I've discovered a lovely little cafe that I love to pop in to at lunch time, hot chocolate and rocky road rice krispie cakes are amazing!

Thanks for reading :)
What have you been up to this sunny week?
Give me a follow on instagram @floraldanielle :)
