Well what can I say I don't look greedy at all here do I with this massive Christmas list. I do know that it's way over the top and I never in a million years expect to even get a third of this list, but a girl can only dream and that's what wish lists are all about after all. I actually had no set items before even starting this list and of course I got a bit (a lot) carried away here, but I feel like I have a good variety of things even though most of it is beauty related. So let me get started on the *ahem* 14 gift ideas…
I love my MK Rose Gold chunky watch, don't get me wrong but to have a more delicate version such as the one above for a bit of a change once in a while would be lovely right?! So I stumbled upon this gorgeous rose gold with white leather offering from Olivia Burton, a brand I haven't been overly familiar with but one that I have actually fallen in love with since discovering.
I've had my Pandora bracelet for quite a while now and I probably don't wear it as much as I should, but I love adding charms to it that mean something to me. This girl charm is of course to represent Ellie, my daughter who is just the best thing that has happened to me. She really is and she brightens up all my days and just makes me feel so lucky to be her mother. So this is definitely one that I need to add to my bracelet soon.
Another Pandora jewellery item, can you tell I'm a fan. This ring is so delicate, girly and feminine in my opinion, which is exactly what I love in my jewellery pieces. I just adore it and I think it would look super cute along with my engagement ring.
I have a feeling this is sold out, so I will probably never get my hands on it at this stage but there's always next year I guess. I just think it's a really good set and a way to try out some of Jo Malone's most popular scents.
I just love love love this scent and I just wish it wasn't so pricey, but nevertheless with gifts sets you always feel like you are getting good value for your money as they always include something a little extra. This set is no different and I would love to finally own this sweet scent that I have been lusting after since it's been released.
With so many amazing palettes out this year especially for the festive season, it was really tough to choose only one, but I feel like this is a great one as it really does have it all. Illamasqua is also a brand that I am yet to try but have been wanting to for a while now so this palette would be a great introduction for me to the brand. Just look at how gorgeous it is.
I just love everything about this bag, the shape, the colour, the design with the pockets, it's just a great one. I love getting bags that don't cost an absolute fortune because you don't mind actually using them on a daily basis for months at a time until you see some wear and tear showing through. Also when that wear and tear does come through you won't feel gutted since you won't have spent a load of money. River Island do the best designs at affordable prices in my opinion.
I'm still dreaming after this gorgeous set of brushes even though I originally didn't buy them when I first got my hands on them (after seeing lilypebbles warning about them going rusty). However I haven't seen anyone else having that problem since so they are back on the wish list in full swing because just look at how beautiful they are and I want them badly, is that not justification enough…
I haven't bought a new winter coat this year as I had two from last year that are still in pretty great shape. However you can never have to many coats in my opinion and of course with January really being the time of year when the cold hits us the most I thought why not add it in here. It looks really warm, super cosy and stylish at the same time.
I just love oversized scarves and this one caught my eye in particular cuz it has a lovely pattern to it with a really simple colour. I haven't spotted any in actual stores yet but if you have any suggestions please let me know in the comments below.
I had to include a product from this brand because let's face it, everyone is talking about CT at the minute and the packaging of every single item is just beautiful. It was really tough to pick just one single item as I would honestly be happy with anything from this brand, but this one in particular caught my eye as the shades are simply stunning.
I have raved about Glamglow and two masks in particular from this set before, the Supermud and the Thirstymud. I am yet to get my hands on any of them yet as I decided to prioritise Christmas and flights home for the season instead, but that doesn't mean I don't want to still get my hands on them. This set is also amazing value as usually a mask alone costs you the same price as a full size mask on its own.
I have been wanting Rebel for quite a while now and since I have recently developed a love for berry lipsticks, which I am now a lot more comfortable to wear… I decided is was about time I actually got my hands on the one lipstick that sparked up the whole berry lip affair in the first place. This one is in a limited edition packaging which I think MAC should do all the time, but I have a feeling it's sold out like the rest of the collection.
Last but not least an Hourglass product because they are so beautiful. I original had one of their blushes alone in my last wish list during the summer, but having three different shades in the one palette is just amazing and I really want to get my hands on it at some stage.
Phew so that was some list with so many beauty goodies that I clearly don't need but lust after. The thing that I am most looking forward though is seeing my family and friends over the festive season, stuffing my face with too much food and just enjoying being back home in Dublin for a whole 11 days. So have you made your Christmas wish list yet? What's at the top of your list? I'd love to know because I'm just nosey like that…
