It Can Suck Being A Grown Up (Alternative Title: All The Pretty Things I Can’t Have)

There are many things that suck about being a grown up… having to work out tax (hurty head), not being able to lie in bed all day watching Sex And The City and having to take the rubbish out (even when it’s raining) are just three of them.

But the thing that sucks the most? Having to pay bills and pay your pay your mortgage rather than spend all your money on PRETTY THINGS. Right now, there are loads of gorgeous buys I have my eye on, but the whole boring being a grown up thing is getting in the way. But still, we can look at the pretty things and dream, right? Here’s what I’m lusting after.

For my four year old, I’m loving this little outfit from the Kate Spade at Gap Kids collection – how cute?

And for me, well, there are just so many things, but these beauties have caught my eye recently…

Autumn buys

1/ Marks and Spencer 2/ Boden 3/ Monica Vinader 4/MAC 5/Jo Malone 6/ Topshop

But no, rather than buy any of these lovely things, I’m going to be sensible and pay our bills, the mortgage, the nursery fees and hope we have some left over to save. Hmph. What’s on your autumn wishlist?
