With the advent chocolates being well consumed and the winter weather arriving, Christmas is well and truly upon us. With my Christmas shopping nearly done and out the way (I shared a few suitable gift options here), I thought it was time to show you all what I have on my list this Christmas. As you would expect there is a few beauty bits in the mix so Santa if you are listening…
First up comes from my makeup queen of 2015, Charlotte Tilbury. What’s a wishlist without a bit of CT thrown in the mix!? Anyway I’ve had my eye on her gorgeous quad palettes for too long now and thought Christmas was the perfect opportunity to ask for one of these beauties. The one that I’ve always wished for is the beautiful Dolce Vita quad with a mix of dark shades, a light highlight shade and the most gorgeous gold glitter that would look amazing over Christmas time! The eyeshadows are meant to be pretty good quality too so I would ever so love to get my hands on it!
I feel like it’s my own tradition every year to get a new pair of trainers. I always seem to ask for a new pair or I tend to buy some during the January sales so obviously this year is no exception. Over the last year I have definitely started my love affair with all things Adidas and I absolutely adore their shoes. The Adidas Superstars are like the perfect pair of trainers (in my eyes anyway), monochrome , basic but stylish that will go with almost anything. I think a pair of trainers is a great staple to have and I know I would wear the life out of these!
Christmas is always the best time to ask for those makeup palettes that you could never make the splurge on. I can’t even remember how long I’ve really wanted the Too Faced Chocolate Bar palette but finally it may be mine. Warm eyeshadow tones are right up my street so this palette would be a great addition to my makeup stash. The palette also apparently has a chocolate scent so I think we are onto a winner here!
I am not really one to splurge on a new fragrance for myself. I always tend to wait until times like Christmas and birthdays to ask instead and this year I would love to get my long time favourite back again! If I had to name my holy grail scent it would be Thierry Mugler Alien without a doubt. I have a poor empty bottle sitting abandoned on my table and a new one would be very well welcomed! To go alongside, I would love to get the Alien Essence Absolue body balm. After a little trip to the fragrance counter I had a little look at this and fell in love. The scent was as I expected and was pretty strong for a body balm so I am looking forward to giving this a try!
