On my Christmas wishlist


As it's now November, it's officially no longer too early to be making lists of what I want for Christmas!  I've been feverishly jotting down notes here and there for the last few weeks as all of the shops have been bringing out their gift guides and filling their shelves with swoonable Christmas sets....
  
These are a few of the things that made it first on to my list, but it's sure to keep growing!

Is there anyone with long, straight hair who doesn't want to try this?  Unlikely. 

I'm Yankee obsessed and I can't fault these two gorgeous Christmas scent offerings - they're adorable.  

I already knew I'd want the Origins mask marvels set for Christmas as I got it last year, it's brilliant value and all three of the masks are winners in my book.  But, as I discovered yesterday that my local Boots now has an Origins counter, I took a little browse around the other gift sets and spotted this little gem.  I really like the make a difference moisturiser, and you get this whole set for the same price you'd normally pay for just the one product.  The £29 price is a special offer price just for this week though, so I think I'll pick this up for myself on behalf of my Mum - she never minds when I do that!

Another product on offer this week only is this star gift from Boots.  I always fall for the pretty Ted Baker packaging and this set has it all going on with a selection of nail polishes, false lashes, lip and eye products and more.

This is gorgeous and I need it in my life.  I swatched this palette yesterday and honestly every colour is just bang on.  I was nicely surprised to see this was only £35 too - I expected it would be a lot more.  I've already have a bit of a telling off on instagram because yes this is 'another' neutral palette, and yes it looks a bit like one of the Urban Decay Naked palettes blah blah blah.  But I love it, it's right up my street and the colours are not the same as any of the Naked palettes, so I'm getting it, end of story!

Have you started keeping a cheeky Christmas wish list?

  3. I bought a medium jar of Snowflake Cookie earlier this week - it's my first yankee jar as I'm always put off by the price but they last for forever and that combined with the adorable packaging and lovely scent made me get it! I also want the merry marshmallow scent but think I'll have to hold off for now considering the amount of candles I have (it's going on my christmas wish list!) xxx

    1. Look out for offers hun - if you're lucky enough to live near any of the yankee outlets they're having a special offer at the end of the month - large jars will be on 3 for 2!
