Christmas Wishlist

Tuesday 5 December 2017


I don't usually ask for much when it comes to Christmas presents as I have a part-time job so whatever I want/need I just pay for it myself, so you can imagine how difficult it was for me to come up with a Christmas list for 2017.

1) Thierry Mugler Aura Fragrance Set
I remember walking into Debenhams in the summer and coming across this beautiful and unique fragrance. I was on my way to get some euros for my holiday to Rome and the money office just happened to be right next to the fragrance department and of course, I took a detour...
I don't think I ever loved a fragrance as much as this one. Mugler's Alien is definitely one of my all-time favourite scents to wear this time of the year but since I ran out of it a few months ago I thought it was the perfect time to ask for this newbie to be added to my collection.

2) Lilo & Stitch Pandora Charm
Not sure if many of you know this already, but I used to work at the Disney Store for over 2 years and have recently left my position as a Cast Member. Disney was a big part of my childhood and I loved watching the movies as I was growing up, so you can only imagine how much I loved working for the company. I still feel very attached to the company and it will forever hold a special place in my heart, hence why I asked for a Disney Pandora charm this Christmas. I asked for this one in particular as I always loved the movie and my sister is my best friend, just like Lilo and Nani. Also, every time I'll look at my bracelet it'll remind me of my time working for Disney and my love for my Ohana.

3) Diptyque Candle 
Once, I was very close to buying one of these myself when I misheard the price of '£40' as '£14'... Come on now, £40 for a candle?! I don't think I'd ever spend this much on one myself but it's a great gift for home-makers. I'm currently looking into buying a house, so I want to start collecting nice bits and bobs for it which makes Christmas gifts a little bit easier. I also love Yankee and Bath and Body Works candles but they can get quite pricey. Another brand I love for luxurious candles is Jo Malone as they look so fancy and smell so good, plus I get some discount on them as I work for Estee Lauder Companies (win-win).

4) J. K. Rowling's Fantastic Beasts And Where To Find Them Book
Joanne is one of my favourite authors since I was about 6. I love her style of writing and thanks to her, my childhood was filled with much needed magic. I also admire her as a person, she's always striving for greatness and is pretty much a Twitter Queen. Anyway, going back to the book - I wanted to get it when the screenplay came out as I love the cover of it but I'd much rather have the original book, because if I wanted to know the screenplay then I'd just watch the film!

5) Urban Decay Ultimate Basics Palette
This palette has been on my list for ages now, and hopefully, I'll be able to get it for Christmas! If not, my birthday is in January so I can wait til then hahaha!! I love matte shadows and this palette is perfect for this time of the year.

What's on your Christmas wishlist this year?

Christmas Wishlist featuring POWDER

Good Evening my lovelies!

Excluding today, we now only have 5 more Mondays until Christmas. Say what?!?! I am beyond excited and thought I'd start creating wishlists and gift ideas to help you guys with your Christmas shopping! (I've already done mine tehe). 

I recently came across a fabulous accessory brand called Powder on The Blogger Programme and just had to share my wishlist with you! They have some gorgeous products which are expired by the likes of Twiggy, Marilyn Monroe etc. Very 1960's - my cup of tea!

So unfortunatelly I couldn't squish all the pictures together but I will post individual pictures with a brief decription below. But just look at those beautiful accessories! Aren't they just to die for? It was very difficult for me choosing my favourite pieces from the whole collection and I narrowed it down to 8!! 
First up we have this beautiful faux fur Chamonix Headband which comes in several colours. It retails at £22 which is quite pricey for just a furry headband, but so worth it! I'm pretty sure Topshop sells similar ones for about £28, so you do save a bit of money! I would love to find this in my Xmas stocking this year!
I'm a massive fan of mittens as not only do they keep me warm but they look so cute with a big puffy jacket or a fluffy sweater! These Igloo Mittens come in 3 gorgeous colours at £20 and I love the nude/taupe shade as I believe it would go with more outfits!
This matching Igloo Hat is so adorable! I don't usually wear hats in Winter and when I do they're usually big floppy hats, but this beanie would look lovely paired up with the mittens wearing skinny jeans and an oversized jumper. Being only £20 it's affordable and you have to get the matching mittens!
This fabulous Chamonix clutch bag is a must have this season. It's a great statement accessory for fun days out and glam nights out! It is a whooping £40 but it is so beautiful, how could anyone say no?
These Ingrid Gloves come in 4 gorgeous shades for only £16.50! They are very 1960's and would look great with a cocoon jacket and some pretty boots.
I have always been a big fan of brooches and then I came upon this lovely Crown Brooch for only £18 and I think it would look amazing attached to the Chamonix clutch.
These lovely Rosie Mittens are only £13!! I'll take five please!! They come in two different shades and unfortunately the lovely powdery pink ones are sold out, but the orange ones are just as nice!
This gorgeous Tabitha Scarf comes in 4 shades and is perfect for Spring as it is made out of quite thin material so it still blocks out the cold without suffocating you with all the thick material! It retails at £22 which is a bargain for such a pretty accessory that you an practically wear all year round!

Have you done any of your Christmas shopping yet? Do you own any Powder accessories?
