Wishlist #2 eBay Edition





So I'm having a bit of a no spending month starting March, but there are a few things I would perhaps like to treat myself to without spending much. eBay is the ideal place to hunt for a few bargains. For many years I was under the assumption that eBay was full of  auctions held for secondhand items that nobody really wanted, boy was I wrong! I've gathered up some of the products I've got my eye on to perhaps give you some ideas for bargains.

Acrylic Makeup Storage
My dressing table is full of makeup and I even bought separate shelves to go underneath it but I have started to overflow so I need some storage that will look good enough to put on the surface of my dressing table. These clear acrylic makeup storage cases are everywhere and they come in all shapes and sizes. This one will suit my needs just fine for the time being.


Marvel Laptop Sleeve

Sorry guys, my inner nerd is about to come out. I really need a good laptop sleeve. I have a large shoulder bag I use whenever I need to take it with me but I would like some extra protection for it. I'm just going to throw this out there now, I love comic book heroes, video games and spend a majority of my free time on my Xbox. This sleeve would simply be ideal for me!

Hooded Cardigan
It's getting towards that temperature (in the UK anyway), where a big and cosy winter coat can be a little too much. As soon as I laid my eyes upon this woolly cardigan I knew I'd have to make it mine. It looks very comfortable yet warm enough for the current weather, ideal for spring!


The 1975 Logo T-Shirt

I really need to start adding more t-shirts to my wardrobe. I just think it's so simple and casual. This would look great with a pair of blue skinny jeans and some ankle boots, or even with leather-look leggings and heels. 

Statement Necklace
I love a good statement necklace and they are very popular at the moment. Quite a lot seem to be quite pricey however and not necessarily for good reason. I really like this one as it would give a great pop of colour to a monochrome outfit and there's no way I could complain about the price!


Black & White Tote Bag

I am aware that this handbag is a Celine knockoff, but I still really like it. It would be ideal as a bag for myself during the working week. The black and white look very smart together and it would match my work outfits very well.

Open Toe Heels

I have a lot of heels, most of them being six inches with platforms. This may be a sign of me getting old inside, but my feet have had enough of the pain. These are the ideal height to make me taller, elegant and classy without the usual downfalls that come with wearing high heels. Since there are so many colours it is unfortunately making the choice difficult!

BaByliss Curl Secret
I've been after the BaByliss Curl Secret hair styler ever since it first launched last year. I always felt it was too much to pay for something that I wasn't sure would work with my hair since it is priced at £119.99. However, since it is available on eBay for £79.98 (a saving of £40.01) I may have to indulge.


I hope you enjoyed my first eBay post! What bargains have you recently found on eBay?
