Xmas Wishlist

I’ve seen lots of these posts lately and I’ve not done one of my monthly wishlists lately so I thought I’d do a Christmas one. Plus I’m feeling ill at the moment so what better way to make myself feel better than day dream at pretty things online.

I’ve asked for a few things for Christmas but most other things on this list are more dream world to get not stuff I expect.

The things I know already are these boots from my Grandad. I usually get shoes from him. I’m lucky that he worked for Clarks most of his life so now gets 33% discount. I love Clarks boots. They are classic styles that really last and look great. I tend to sway towards brown or tan boots as I struggle to find nice black ones. This year I was determined to find some.

I really liked the simple style of these and they look great on. They are a sort of suede material so not completely black and shiny which I love. You can find them here for £79.99 I was lucky to get them for just under £50 as I had another discount.

I’ve also asked for Real Techniques brushes as I really want to have a good set of brushes and these are such a reasonable price and I love everything about them. I’ve got a lot of these coming from different family members as I couldn’t think of anything else I really wanted.

They are also currently on offer in boots.

I also really love the Vans/Converse/Toms style. I want some practical shoes that I can wear with my jeans for dress down days. I love my dolly shoes but want something a bit warmer for days I don’t want to wear boots. I think I’m more swayed to Vans as I think they’d look better on my feet (I have big feet, a size 7 and worry converse would exaggerate this) Toms are probably more Summery but I like them and Imagine them being so comfy. Schuh have a great range of both.

I love the floral girly version of these.

I think Burgandy version of these would be perfect for dry winter days.

I’m still yet to find a foundation that makes me want to stop trying others. I have lots at the moment I really like but I still think there is better. I’m loving Liz Earle Cleanse and Polish and have heard great things about there make up range. I’d love to try the natural glow bronzer and signature foundation from this range.

I think this will be great for contouring as it’s a matte shade.

I’ve seen lots of great reviews for the signature foundation and would love to try it out. I’ve seen good reviews for oily skin too which make me lean towards it more.

If you’ve seen any of my wishlist you’ll probably know I’ve been lusting for coloured skinnies/jeggings. While getting my dine in for £10 deal the other day in M&S I was very surprised by there selection of coloured and patterned skinny jeggings and jeans. I can’t wait to try some of these.

These three are my favourites. I love the zip detail on the purple ones and the subtle patterrn on the middle ones. I’d love to be brave enough to pull off the full on floral but I don’t think I am. If you are on the look out for new jeans I say look in M&S you may be surprised. They seem reasonably prices too.

The Benefit Feeling Dandy is probably at the top of my wishlist. I recently purchased Erase Paste and the MUA put Dandelion blush on me and I loved the way it looks.

The set is great, you get mini posie tine and high beam as well as a lip gloss to match. All the colours in the set compliment each other. They also have them with Coralista Blush and Sugar Bomb so there is a shade to suit everyone. I’m wanting to try more Benefit make up. I love all the gift sets. What’s your recommendations?

Being winter I’m also eyeing up snuggley jumpers. George at Asda has a great range of jumpers for a reasonable price. These are some of the ones I’m loving.

And lastly and totally not something I’ll own but I’ve been lusting over these for years so just thought I’d share these beautiful shoes! The Love Moschino Heart Studded Pump. I saw these a while ago and have been in love with them since.

What’s on your Christmas Wishlist?

Love M
