Weekly Wishlist #4 – Unicorns!

Unicorns

I named my blog Inner Unicorn because I’m still a little bit gutted to discover that unicorns apparently don’t exist*. So my inner unicorn is that bit of me that still believes in the stuff of daydreams. And I’m a big fan of mystical ponies. The problem with being 24 (I had to think for a second before writing an actual number there, most of the time I think I’m still about 19) is that wearing glittery, pink, unicorn stuff in public is a bit embarrassing.

So, these are my top unicorn themed things to be seen in/with, whilst still being totally cool.

*Don’t get me started on narwhals. I don’t understand how they get to be real but unicorns don’t. Someone needs to have a word with Noah about what kind of bizarre criteria he had for letting things on his boat.

1. This sweater is perfect for the colder weather that’s arriving (boo!!) and grey marl is just so cosy. And the print is awesome; it’s really sad when someone steals your unicorn, but at least you can advertise for its return right on your front. The sweater is Zoe Karssen at Matches and it’s a little bit pricy, but totally worth it.

2. Unicorns make great pets. This one is doing a fab job of holding someone’s rings. How useful would a unicorn be in your house? Get this one from Urban Outfitters (US site only – come on UK UO, give us more unicorns!).

3. We all know unicorns are magical, so let them fix your war wounds too. These plasters are funky and totally beat a bit of elastoplast for fantasy style. The place I found them from is out of stock, but it seems that you can get them from Amazon at the moment instead.

4. I can’t believe I’m endorsing something by Tulisa, but it seems she beat me to this ‘unicorns are cool’ thing and created a whole range of clothes for Bank with a unicorn print. And it’s not as trashy as you might expect… This is a nice demure pink skater skirt with a navy blue unicorn print to set you apart from the standard navy on pink polka dots I’ve been seeing everywhere. And it’s in the sale right now at only £10!

5. Topshop’s nail polish in ‘Unicorn’ is a cutesy pink with a proper glitter kick to it. I’d love to use this as an accent nail alongside something a little more grown up looking! Some reviews have suggested it’s more of a top coat than an actual pink base though, so I’d layer it over black to let the glitter show up better.

6. For more of a classy take on the unicorn theme, Pandora have created a gorgeous charm in sterling silver with a 14ct gold horn. This is definitely going on my Christmas list! Yes, I said the C word – it’s autumn, I can totally say it now.
