Christmas Wishlist

It's the first of December and if you ask me, you're never too old for an advent calendar. What better way to wake up than with a little chocolate boost? Okay so i'm slightly overexcited to begin poking open the little doors but the countdown to Christmas is by far the best part of the year! I absolutely love all the beautiful decorations and lights and songs and FOOD. I've had to draw a line at stuffing my list up the chimney for Santa, so I've decided to share my wishlist with you instead. I don't know about you, but I like reading this sort of post to get gift ideas other than the usual Superdrug gift sets and chocolate.

Since Kate Middleton was spotted wearing this dress, it's become THE piece of the season. It's so simple yet so classy. I've been so close to buying it myself for the last month or so but sadly, the student life doesn't allow for £46 on a dress. Sigh. This is definitely top of my list this year, i'd be happy with this and nothing else!

I am a self confessed Vansaholic and I don't wear many other shoes, especially for college as I have quite a long walk. I already have a few other colours and I wear them with everything but I feel a black pair would look nicer with some outfits.

You might remember me mentioning this product in my Inside My Makeup Bag post earlier this year. Sadly my original one got lost in a club (i'm still grieving) and I'm desperate for a replacement. Chubby Sticks are really hydrating and come in gorgeous colours, my first one was pink but this time i'd like to try a redder shade. I'm a bit of a hopeless case when it comes to lipstick but this is one of the few products i've found to be really wearable and not too overwhelming against my pale skin.

As someone who suffers from horribly oily skin, I'm always on the look out for a miracle makeup product to help me out. Recently I had a free Bare Minerals consultation in Boots and the lovely lady who worked at the stand tried out some pieces from the starter kit on me. I was really impressed with how natural yet full the coverage was! It's quite a pricey brand but it's supposedly healthy on the skin and natural and all that. Plus, the starter kit includes primer, foundation, blusher, mineral veil (basically setting powder) and three brushes which works out at a fairly reasonable price.

The tartan trend has gone crazy this winter and I've unashamedly jumped right on the bandwagon. I already have a tartan print dress which i love love love but I think the scarfs are really cute so i'm after one of those too! I really like this one I found on Pinterest and Urban Outfitters have some pretty snazzy ones as well. 

This is a bit of a random addition to a beauty and fashion wishlist but hey, my phone has too look fashionable too, right? I've been after a Sighh phone case for such a long time and i've finally picked out my favourite. I love the Bitchin' Bubble case because it sums me up so well, who could resist one of these? Sighh have the prettiest cases ever so it's definitely worth a look on the website if you're after something a bit different.

That's all for now ladies (or men who knows) so if you're in a bit of a pickle thinking of gift ideas, I'd recommend all of these beauties.

Love, Anna x
