My current LUSTS

It’s all very well for me sharing lots of tips on saving money and I’m sure you’re trying very hard but I thought I’d give you a little extra encouragement to remember to use cashback sites every time you buy something online, plan your weekly meals to cut down the cost of your grocery shopping, and switch your utility providers. Sure, you’re saving enough each month to pay the bills but wouldn’t you like to save a little more so you can treat yourself too?  By following every tip in my personal finance bootcamp, you can. (Sign up for free at the bottom of this post.)

So, back to the encouragement.

My baby boy is teething really badly at the moment so we’ve been confined to the house for the last week.  As a result, I’ve spent A LOT of time on the internet and I’ve been tempted by A LOT of gorgeous things. Here are the beautiful items that I’m currently lusting after:

my-summer-lusts my-summer-lusts21. Ray-Ban Erika Classic sunglasses £98, 2. GoPro Hero4 Silver Camera £289 (let’s you capture incredible images and video on the go and even underwater as it can be attached to anything easily), 3. Whistles Marina Cross Jumpsuit £250, 4. Personalised Longchamp handbag £89 (check out full details here), 5. Apple iPad Pro 9.7″ from £639 (perfect for working on the go), 6. Compatible Apple Smart Keyboard £149, 7. Reiss Leigh High Neck Lace Top in Apricot £60 (Hurry into John Lewis as it’s sold out on Reiss’ website already!), 8. Apple Pencil £79 (also compatible with the iPad Pro and it enables you to scribble on notes and draw out plans, which is perfect if you’re in the marketing world!)

What do you think of my lusts then? And because I’ve been good with my money this month, I’m going to treat myself to one of these pretty little things….or maybe two!

    I adore Ray Ban sunglasses and the classic Erika sunglasses are to die for, you obviously have great taste x

    Love one and two. But since I just bought a new camera over Christmas, there is no way I’ll be able to justify another one 🙂 Really like your list.

    Those new Ray Bans are the one! And I love that long playsuit. I know what it must feel like being stuck inside all day, c’mon Mr Sun! Come out so we can all play outside!

    The bag stands out to me, looks stylish but practical as well (for all the mum stuff I carry as well!)

    That is a good price for the GoPro, we paid a lot more than that for ours!

    Thoug I would never spend that much on a jumpsuit I am absolutely loving it and the design. It’s so pretty

    Wowser, those are some expensive items! 🙂 have a look on Missguided or ASOS for jumpsuits, they do such gorgeous ones, and so much cheaper too. I’m really bad at treating myself!

    Fab wish list items, I would love a go pro. I did the race for life last week and thought how great it would been to have had a camera to film it x

    Ray bans are essential for summer. The whole list is sooo lit, but slightly expensive haha. x
