Whether you like it or not, Christmas is fast approaching! I love Christmas; I love putting the decorations up, buying and wrapping gifts for loved ones, Christmas baking etc. This Christmas is going to be extra special because it’s my Sons first Christmas, so I’m dying to see him open his gifts and how he loves the decorations.
Part and parcel of giving gifts is receiving gifts, and even though I in no way expect anything, there are a few little things I hope Santa leaves under my tree…
Harry Potter and the Chamber of Secrets, Illustrated edition (£15.00, Amazon) – I received the first one for my Birthday and completely fell in love, and the second one was released in October so naturally I would like the second book. I think there will be one brought out each year, so I can imagine these are going to feature quite frequently! They’re just an amazing collectors item for anyone who loves the books; the illustrations are beautiful and so magical, and really capture the spirit and magic of the books. I was one of the few who had read the books before the movies appeared, so these illustrations remind me of what I originally pictured before the films stole that place.
Charlotte Tilbury Scent of a Dream Perfume – I love receiving perfumes at Christmas! It’s one of my favourite gifts to receive; I don’t consider it a successful Christmas until I receive a few new perfumes for the year. This year, I would love to receive the newest addition to Charlotte Tilbury’s latest venture. I sampled this in John Lewis (Where I was lucky enough to receive a small sample in one of those tiny bottles) and completely fell in love. I had so many compliments about my perfume that I decided I had to buy it for myself. Whoa! That is one pricey perfume! Even the smallest size bottle carries quite a hefty price tag, so whether I get this as a gift or whether I buy it myself, I will be using it sparingly!
Morphe 350 Matte Palette – I’ve been after this for a while, but it seems to be sold out everywhere I look! I love matte Eyeshadows, so it goes without saying that this is something I would like to receive. I’ve never had any Morphe eyeshadow palettes, but I’ve heard good things about them so would like to see for myself what the hype is about!
Zoeva Rose Golden Zoe Bag Complete set – I saw on Em Ford’s Snapchat (Mypaleskinblog) that there’s a new Zoeva collection of brushes that comes in a HUGE travel case, and I would love to get my hands on this! I don’t even think it’s out yet, and I have no idea when it’ll be coming out, but it is BEAUTIFUL! I have a feeling (based on the last Zoe bag collection) that this is going to be WAY out of my price range, but a girl can dream!
Charlotte Tilbury Hot Lips Collection – I have the ‘Hells Bells’ lipstick from this range and I absolutely love it; there’s just something about the formulation of the Charlotte Tilbury lipsticks that I just can’t get enough of. There’s quite a few coral pink and red shades that I have my eye on – Miranda May being one of them – as I will definitely like to see a few of these in my stocking this year!
Smashbox Be Legendary 120 Lipstick Collection (£17.00) – This one is completely wishful thinking, but I’ve seen a number of Beauty Gurus have been given a box of the complete collection, and I would feel like I’d died and gone to heaven if I was lucky enough to get one too. I must have been a veRY good girl to receive this! All joking aside, I’ve swatched a number of these lipsticks that are in my local Boots, and they feel incredible. If I get any money for Christmas, I’ll be venturing over to this stand to see which ones I fancy…
