I can’t believe it’s December again and in 3 weeks time it’ll be Christmas Eve. This year has gone by amazingly quick and I’m sure next year is going to be just the same! So another month, another wish list and what better way to show it to you all than showing you what I’d like for Christmas too. 😛
I’m currently writing (after editing the image together) whilst sitting up in my boyfriends bed, whilst he reads. Oh how very married couple we do sound. It is 3am though mind and whilst he seems sleepy, I’m wide awake, but this being said, I do also feel a bit poorly. Sad times, sad times. 😦
I doubt very much I’ll get anything off of this list as presents (especially one item in particular) but hey it’s a wish list, I can wish away as much as I do so wish, get it, eh? Yeah let’s get on with the post!
- Eileena Jumper from Animal – £45.00.
I spotted this jumper during an afternoon out with my best friend. I spotted a fox sweatshirt in Animal’s window on a mannequin and ventured inside to see how much it was, that was £45.00 too but in front of that one, was this gorgeous jumper. It’s red with foxes on and as anyone who knows me knows, I LOVE foxes! I’d wear this to death and I’m going to be keeping my eye on it for the next month! If it ends up going into the Christmas sales, I’m buying it ASAP! Probably in a bigger size than I usually am so it has some bag to it. This felt super soft too as well as looking adorable. I need this jumper in my life, I could wear it with so many things! Plus I know it’s quite expensive for a jumper, but it’s definitely worth the money as it looked and felt like amazing quality.
- Fox iPhone 5 case by Head Case from eBay – £4.95.
As much as I love my rubber Game Boy case and my red flip case (that has already on two occasions protected my screen from breaking) I really want something new and for less than a fiver, this case is adorable. Once again another fox product (I’ll be a crazy fox lady in my old age!) but I don’t care, I love foxes so damn much, it’s an illness I swear! This case is just adorable and one I’d use quite a lot. I would purchase this myself with some Christmas money, apart from my boyfriend, no one I know uses eBay! 😛
- Black Velvet Lace Collar Playsuit from River Island – £30.00.
This recently sold out on River Island’s website and upon inspecting if River Island had it in any stores near me to buy, I came to find that there are a couple of places where I could order it from, however I don’t know when I’ll be going to said places next, sucks huh? Either way this playsuit is gorgeous and has been on my wish list since I created my last one in October. I’d wear it quite a lot, especially for evenings out and as I only own a couple of playsuits, I don’t think another one would hurt.
- Adventure Time Lumpy Space Princess Beanie from Forbidden Planet -£13.99.
I spotted this on my shopping trip in Coventry (you can check out that haul here) and fell in love, especially after trying it on. During the start of November I started to watch Adventure Time to see what all the fuss was about and I’m already in love with Lumpy Space Princess, as well as Princess Rainicorn! My boyfriend was the one who spotted this beanie as we were looking at the Adventure Time section and immediately I tried it on. It was soft and felt really snug and comfortable on my head and is definitely something I’d love for Christmas, if I don’t get it, I’ll be purchasing it myself for the colder months that we have yet to go through!
- Large Jar Candle in North Pole from yankeecandle.co.uk – £19.99.
I’d never heard about this candle until recently when a few beauty bloggers and users I follow on Instagram were posting and taking pictures of this candle, North Pole. It’s description says, “What holiday dreams are made of . . . a sweet blend of icy cool mint and sugary rich vanilla cream.” which sounds right up my street and for nearly £20 you get 110-150 hours burn time, that’s a lot of burning! This is making a special appearance on the Yankee Candle UK website, along with some other yummy scents and is only available in the large jar. As of yet I’ve not owned a large jar candle but this could be a first. I could see me buying this before Christmas even comes to be upon us, it just sounds so damn delicious, I need it in my life!
- Mrs Hedgehog Charm from Pandora – £30.00.
At the start of November I was lucky enough to receive a Pandora bracelet and some charms from my family after they came back from their holiday. It meant a lot that they brought me this back as it was a total surprise and since then I’ve been wearing the bracelet everywhere… Apart from work of course. It feels like my good luck charm and the charms that they got me for it are adorable, but in the next couple of days I’ll be writing a post about what I got back so stay tuned for that! Either way I was intrigued (as you are) at what other charms Pandora do and thus which ones I could add to my bracelet in the future and the first one I saw was this Mrs Hedgehog charm. It reminds me of Mrs. Tiggy-Winkle from the Beatrix Potter stories. She’s always reminded me of my Gran, who regular readers will know sadly passed away in March this year. This is definitely on my Christmas wish list and as my Mom has already mentioned how she would be more than happy to be me a charm for Christmas, as well as my birthday then this is hopefully going to be mine this year. If I’m not bought it, I’ll buy it myself as a birthday present to myself. 😛
- Pokemon X on Nintendo 3DS from GAME – £31.99.
I love Pokemon, ever since Blue and Red first came out on the Game Boy and since then I’ve been hooked. My favourite game to date is probably Silver as I near completed it before my cartridge broke. I was absolutely devastated! Since then I’ve gone on to own most Pokemon games and I’m showing signs that I’m not stopping there! I already know which Pokemon I want as my starter and which Pokemon I want in my team. I’m a total nerd when it comes to games, but Pokemon just reminds me of my childhood!
- MUA Luxe Velvet Lip Lacquer in Reckless from muastore.co.uk & Superdrug – £3.00.
I only found out about these recently and when my friend Amy told me about them, I rushed round to every Superdrug store near in hopes of finding Reckless, which is a gorgeous red shade. These have been described as being like Lime Crimes Velvetines but a hell of a lot cheaper! Reckless is the only one I’ll be picking up from the collection as the other shades don’t really appeal all that much to me. The only problem with these is that everyone is snapping them up, thus all Superdrug stores are SOLD OUT. The only place you can seem to get them at the moment is from MUA’s website which if I have to, is where I’ll be picking Reckless up from. It’s just the perfect red shade and will be great for winter, especially Christmas Day and for my birthday.
- Animal Crossing: New Leaf on Nintendo 3DS from GAME – £27.99.
I’ve owned two Animal Crossing games, the one for GameCube (which I still have btw) and the one for Nintendo DS. I loved that game but as I’ve got older I’ve just not had as much time to play it and to be honest I got a tad bored after a while and losing my amazing neighbours (mostly dogs) made my heart-break a little bit. But either way New Leaf sounds a lot different to the previous versions and if anything, more fun! You get to be the major of your town and run it the way you want to, which sounds quite fun! I’d just sit around and play this all day instead of doing things I need to, which isn’t good of course but sometimes we all just need time to do that, don’t we?
- Small Jar Candle in Sweet Strawberry from yankeecandle.co.uk – £8.39.
I LOVE Sweet Strawberry and is by far one of my favourite Yankee Candle scents (alongside Christmas Cookie and Red Velvet) and surprisingly enough I’ve not yet bought it in a jar version, only ever as a wax tart or a sampler. But I’ve come to realise that I really want it as a jar now and what better way than to ask for it for Christmas. Sweet Strawberry is described as, “The essence of perfectly ripe strawberries sprinkled with sugar.” which is pretty accurate! The smell of this candle reminds me of a strawberry smelling doll that my Gran bought for me when I was five or six years old. We were on holiday in Devon and I fell in love with the doll, so she bought it for me. I still have it somewhere, I don’t think I’d have the heart to part with it! So it’d be nice to have this candle burning in my room when I just want some happy memories. 🙂
- Nintendo 2DS in White and Red from GAME – £109.99.
Yes this is a bit of a childish thing to want but it’s what I really want this Christmas! I love my PS3, don’t get me wrong but sometimes I just want something I can take around with me, bring to my boyfriends to play on or if travelling I can take it with me as I can’t read when travelling due to sickness and as much as I love music, I get a bit bored with just listening to that too. I have to add how I thought the 2DS would be more expensive than the 3DS, due to the fact it’s new but it’s actually cheaper! I want the white and red version as I think it looks pretty. A plus side with the 2DS is that you can download all your favourite classic old Game Boy games to play! Definitely need this in my life and if I don’t get it for Christmas I know I’ll be saving up long and hard to purchase one myself! This is number one on my wish list this year and yes it’s something a child would ask for, but the child inside of me is coming out and if I was bought this for Christmas, I’d be a very happy girl. 🙂
So that was my December *cough* Christmas wish list!
