Woohoo it’s December and you know what that means… Christmas will soon be upon us! That also means shops will be packed full of crazy shoppers, the German Market in town will be overflowing with hungry people and every shop you go into will be playing Christmas music loudly… The joys of this month!
I’m actually REALLY excited for Christmas this year, I haven’t been this excited for quite a long time, too long for me to remember.
I’ve already bought all my boyfriends presents and I’m still needing to buy some more but that won’t be a problem. He’s been spoilt rotten this year!
But now onto what I would like for Christmas… I made up a list for my boyfriend and it was pretty hard to make up, as I really don’t/didn’t know what I wanted this year. It was pretty much my wish list of things that I either haven’t yet gotten round to buying OR haven’t had the money to buy.
SO! Without further ado, here is my wish list for Christmas.
- MAC Cosmetics Prep + Prime Transparent Finished Powder/Pressed.
A silky, colourless finishing powder suitable for all skin tones. Reduces shine while optically minimizing the look of lines & imperfections. Wear over makeup or on its own. Now in a pressed compact for ease & portability.
I love MAC Cosmetics but bar one product I’ve only ever owned lipsticks by them. This is set to change in the New Year though as I really want to try this finishing powder out. Although I don’t wear make up (apart from lip products of course!) I do like a finishing powder to keep my face looking matte and this looks like a good call. I currently use one by Bare Minerals and whilst I really like it, I would like to try something else to broaden my horizons. This comes in both a powder and a pressed form, but I think I would want the pressed version so that I could use it on the go. I get terrible shine on my nose and whilst the powder I put on my skin in the morning does the trick, it doesn’t last all day. This would also be ideal for taking with me when I go on holiday and to my boyfriends. I’ll probably ask my Mom for this, if not I’ll just pick it up myself with my Christmas money (if I get any!). I think this is at a decent price for £20.50 too!
- Guardians Of The Galaxy Rocky Raccoon Pop Vinyl Figure.
I don’t as of yet own any Pop Vinyl figures but I have wanted to. I have my eye on quite a few of them that I want and this is one of them. I LOVED Guardians Of The Galaxy when I went to the cinema to watch it and Rocket was definitely my favourite character out of the team. When I went to Comic Con a few Saturday’s ago there were hundreds of Pop Vinyl figures and whilst I didn’t pick one up… My boyfriend did and I have a feeling it’s one of my Christmas presents as he didn’t want to show me which one he picked up. This Pop Vinyl is a bobble head so this would be awesome to keep at a desk to play with when procrastinating. I don’t have a desk, but I’ve already decided that whenever I get any Pop Vinyl figures in the future I’m going to wait until I move out to take them out of the boxes, so they’re nice and fresh for my new home. I’d love a little collection of Pop Vinyl figures and soon enough in the future I will make a post of which figures I want, and why.
- Paperchase Dreamscape Woodland Leather Personal Organiser.
I spotted this in Paperchase back in September before I started university and was really tempted to buy it, but I stopped myself as I wouldn’t be able to use it until the New Year anyway! I’ve decided that instead of having my standard diary I keep at home, I wanted an organiser to have on the go. It’ll be handy with university, as well as work and social life too. This one has a beautiful grey and blue woodland design on it that includes various woodland animals such as foxes, owls, deers, rabbits and badgers. This will be perfect and you can add new years, as well as different sections to the organiser, which means I can use it year after year!
- Yankee Candle in Candy Cane Lane.
A favourite Christmas place where delicious dreams are made with tingly peppermint, sweet cookies and creamy vanilla icing.
Like most out there, I love Yankee Candles and whenever Yankee announce new scents I get super excited and this winter they have come out with a really yummy scent. Candy Cane Lane. Each time I go into a Yankee Candle stockist and they have Candy Cane Lane out for people to smell and buy, I give it a sniff. It’s a gorgeous creamy mint scent, which reminds me of peppermint hot chocolate and peppermint chocolate. I love mint themed foods (don’t even get me started on After Eights!) so this is really up my street. Although I don’t need anymore Yankee Candles (as a post in the next few weeks will reveal) I would burn this throughout the winter season and beyond as it would just remind me of Christmas, so it would be worth having it for sure. I have a feeling I’ve already been bought this for Christmas, but I’m not 100% sure… We shall soon find out.
- Clinique 3-Step in Dry Combination: Type 2.
I’ve been using Clinique on and off for over ten years now and it is always a product I end up going back to because I just love it that much. The only reasons I stop using it is usually due to lack of money. When I was out of work for a couple of months last year I couldn’t afford to re-purchase the moisturiser for the 3-Step so it resulted in me discontinuing use of the 3-Step once again. However my Mom has already suggested that she pick up the 3-Step again for me for Christmas, which would be lovely! As I’m going away on holiday in January and Clinique also sell a handy travel set, I can see me picking this up myself in preparation for said holiday. Although I have always been Type 2, which is dry combination I can see me going through the tests again when I visit the Clinique counter just to make sure I haven’t changed. It’ll be good to have my 3-Step routine back in the New Year.
- Wonderland Bunny Cotton Tail Cotton Wool Dispenser.
I spotted this on Truffle Shuffle’s Facebook page months ago and since then I have been lusting after it. I’m unsure if anyone has bought it for me for Christmas, but if not I intend to pick it up with my Christmas money, or my birthday money. I recently got a new set of drawers in my room and I would like something nice like this to bring a little life to my room. It’d just brighten up each day taking out one of the little cotton wool balls to use.
- Lush Rudolph Christmas Gift.
I love Lush and I know that I want from there this Christmas and some of the bits and pieces are actually in this cute little gift. It comes with Yog Nog Soap, Snowman Jelly Shower Jelly, Dashing Santa Bath Bomb and Golden Wonder Bath Bomb. I do have a bar of Yog Nog soap, but I’ve never tried the other products and would love them to use as a treat when I go on holiday. Plus look at the packaging for this gift! You can’t go wrong with a knot Rudolph cloth. Super cute and it isn’t exactly super expensive.
- Pandora Night Sky Openwork Charm.
I thought I would save the best until last, a Pandora charm. Last Christmas and birthday I received Pandora and once again my family and boyfriend have offered to buy me it again this year. I have made a short list of some charms I like and that I’m after, but I’ve recently spotted this charm and now I am in love. It would work beautifully with the blue theme I want to create on my university charm bracelet (I need to write a post about this someday…) which I often wear these days. The charm is just so beautiful isn’t it? It’s just loads of blue stars and a silver/clear gem in the middle. It looks like a night sky and I love those quite frankly. If I’m not bought this charm this year, I will for sure be buying it for myself as a treat!
So that’s my Christmas wish list this year! I don’t really have anything in particular I want for Christmas, probably just a few lovely little things from close family, friends and my boyfriend.
