So it’s the middle of December and after gorging on the first of many sweet treats to come over the festive season (if unlike me you have resisted the temptation to eat them all!) it’s time to create the wishlist of all wishlists! I love a wishlist.. and to be honest my wishlist is ongoing! That’s enough of saying wishlist for now!….wishlist.
I recently went on a major spending spree in Waterstones coming away with £50+ worth of gorgeous new hardback books from my favourite bloggers, vloggers and fashionistas, a review of which will be coming soon! I still love curling up with a good book and a couple on my wishlist this Christmas include:
Fleur de Force – The Glam Guide (I’m obsessed with blogger/vlogger books at the mo!)
Dita Von Teese – Your Beauty Mask (She is my ultimate beauty icon! Even her front cover is stunning!)
Alexander McQueen – Claire Wilcox (After seeing the exhibition, I felt intrigued to learn more about the designer)
Lisa Eldridge – Face Paint, The Story of Make Up (Just look at the front cover!!)
Secret Garden: 20 Postcards (Time to get colouring for friends and family)
The World According to Karl (Full of wonderful, inspirational quotes. The perfect gift for any fashionista!)
Miles of MAC (No one can ever have too much MAC)
I am majorly getting into Charlotte Tilbury make up. Not only are the products looking super cute, the names of the different products are so unique and I’m super excited as we now have our very own branch in London!
Mini Lipstick Charms – £29
Nocturnal Cat Eyes To Hypnotise, Silver Leopard & Black Magic Eyeshadow – £29
Lip Cheat, Pillowtalk – £16
Keeping with beauty and I think it’s time to admit that yes, I’m a Naked addict. By that I mean the gorgeous eyeshadow palettes from Urban Decay that have literally taken the blogging community by storm. I’m not going to bore you with yet another review of these fantastic eyeshadows – everyone knows they’re amazing by now. However, I am going to pop a couple on my wishlist and hope to inspire you to do the same. Once you do, there’s just no going back. (For those of you who are interested I am going to be doing a W7 palette review, which in my opinion are just as fabulous on a budget buy!)
My absolute fave palette, Naked 2 – £38
How cute is this Fujifilm pink camera?! I adore it! Or if you’re a massive Hello Kitty fan check this one out too! I was debating getting one last Christmas but never got round to it.
I love having photos around of memories and special occasions and I’ve found a few gorgeous frames from Paperchase that I absolutely love this Christmas.
Mystic Rose Frame – £10
Vision Peacock Frame – £15
Flamingo Frame – £18
My computer is literally so old it’s practically running Windows 98 (which is saying something as it’s a Macbook!!) so it’s definitely in need for an upgrade. I have been looking at getting a netbook for a while now – something that I can pop in my handbag so I can set myself up in a coffee shop over lunch and get on top of my blogging. I love this ACER from Currys, which is sleek and versatile, perfect for working on the move!
In 2016 I want to get mega organised with my blog and in order to do so I am looking to get a Blogger Planner. These Blogger Planners are perfect for keeping organised, planning content and brainstorming new ideas. They also have such lovely quotes and are seasonal, offering beautiful pastel shades in the Summer and blacks, greys and whites in Winter. Available from The Bloggers Planner.
In 2016 I want to fill my home and life with everything rose gold. I can’t describe how much I love this colour. A slightly pinker version of a copper colour, it looks most fabulous with rich dark purples and white.
Lantern from New Look – Now £5.99
Tealight Holders from eBay – £7.99
Bellini Rose Gold Coloured Furniture from Kaleidoscope – From £92
Cushion from Ted Baker – £50
Fairy Lights from Christmas Time UK – £34
When I was last in Debenhams (One of my fave department stores with excellent sales!) I spotted these gorgeous Ted Baker PJ’s. All of Ted Baker’s sleepwear and lingerie range is so beautifully silky and soft and so perfect for curling up in on a Winter’s evening. It’s a shorts and vest set too meaning you won’t get too overly toasty curled up under layers of duvets and blankets!
I am totally besotted with the new Michael Kors Rose Gold perfume. Not only is it such a stunning colour but it smells so yummy that I kept the sample in my bag for weeks! Definitely check it out if you haven’t already. I hope you love it as much as I do.
