Blogger Wishlist: Helena & Diana

Blogger Wishlist: Helena & Diana

Welcome to another Wednesday Blogger Wishlist post, today we have Helena from London (although originally from Barcelona) and Diana from Stellenbosch which is just outside Cape Town.
Helena’s blog, A Diary of Lovely, is so perfectly named, it’s exactly that… daily inspiration! Full of gorgeous posts about fashion, interiors, design and more, Helena has such great style, I love her choices. She also has a great series going, called My Stuff which is really fun, definitely worth checking out!
A Diary of Lovely's wishlist
Over to you Helena…
1. A classic Smythson notebook, because it’s a classic and comes in yummy colors.
2. Chanel 2.55 in black, BIG number 1 on my list. Me, the girl next door and probably half the female population of this planet.
3. A trip to New York including a stay at the Ace and a trip to Palm Spring and a stay at The Parker. New York has been always top n my travel list and Palm Spring is my newest obsession.
4. Rubie Green pillows, love the patterns, they go anywhere and look so chic.
5. This look by J.Crew The simplicity and French vibe has me swooning.
6. Diamond Studs from Tiffany, or anywhere else really, I always wear pearls on my ears so I would like to change a little bit.
7. A new camera, a point and shoot, I would love a DSLR but cant see myself carrying it around. So after checking around I decided to get the super sleek and sexy Canon Ixus 130.

Thanks Helena, I’d love to join you in New York and that Rubie Green pillow has my name on it!

Our second wishlist comes from Diana who has such a creative and cool blog, called Miss Moss. Diana is a graphic designer from Stellenbosch and blogs about fashion, photography, design and all sorts of interesting and quirky finds. I don’t know how Diana always manages to find such unusual things to blog about but it definitely makes her blog one of a kind and definitely worth reading!
Miss Moss wishlist
Over to you Diana…
1. Giving someone your calling card is so much slicker than swapping cellphone numbers, a stack of these from Mandate Letterpress would be very nice.
2. I wish I had flame red hair like Florence Welch of Florence and the Machine
3. As far as vintage cars go, the Porsche 356 has to be in my top 5 dream cars.
4. I cannot wait for Mad Men season 4 to start next month, my favourite TV drama.
5. My search goes on for comfortable high waist slim leg jeans that fit perfectly – these are from Urban Outfitters
6. A perfect pair of black leather boots (with a sensible heel) would become a permanent fixture in my wardrobe – these are from ACNE.
7. I’m really loving the black bow detail chain necklaces by Marni at the moment
8. This Timex vintage field army watch from J.Crew would be on my wrist every day.

Love that necklace and the calling card idea, such fun, thanks Diana for a fabulous list! So which of these are your favourites? Will any of these be making their way onto your personal wishlists?
