It’s nearly Christmas everyone! Have you got your tree up yet? We haven’t as I want to try and tidy the house up as much as possible before we cover it in glittery stuff! My grandparents, auntie and cousin are coming for Sunday lunch so it’ll have to be done by then.
I love Christmas! Although now I’m no longer a child the day itself is a little bit of an anticlimax. Of course, except spending time with friends and family, one of the best things about the festive period is the giving and receiving of presents.
Before my birthday, my Nanna was asking me what I wanted for Christmas. But I had no idea. I think now I’m getting money but I’ve since thought of lots of things I’d like. Hopefully I’ll be able to pick up some bargains in the January sales.
I’ve been sifting through lots of gift guides and watching a few on YouTube, particularly FleurdeForce’s. Who else wants that handbag? If you don’t know what I’m talking about, watch her gift guide for her 🙂 As usual, Next have some lovely bits. Their candle votive set even featured in Fleur’s stocking filler guide.
As they’ve got such nice gifts (and there’s a prize at stake – see bottom of post!), I’ve created this Christmas wishlist.
I’ve wanted a stand mixer ever since I started watching cake baking tutorials on YouTube back when I was considering making my own wedding cake. (I didn’t do it – thank god!) However much I’d love a bright pink KitchenAid they’re over £400. This lovely one from Next is £99 so a bit of a bargain really.
I love the legging style jammie bottoms because they keep my legs warmer. Plus these ones are just so cute! I adore glittery things and the print on the top is actually quite stylish, you could probably wear the top out and no-one would bat an eyelid.
I have naturally wavy/curly hair and straightening it is a bitch. It takes me about 45 minutes. Part of me thinks that if I had GHDs the time would be reduced and my hair would stay straight for longer. My hairdresser uses them and gets a much better result than I ever can at home. Plus, these are gorgeous! I love the ombre/iridescent colour. Sadly, I don’t think anyone will ever buy me a pair of these 🙁
Because chocolate. ‘Nuff said.
How gorgeous are these boots? I bought some black Clark’s boots for my birthday and I’ve barely taken them off since. It now looks like I’ve had them years. I could do with another pair of ankle boots so I can mix it up a bit. The berry colour of these is so lovely. They’d be perfect for autumn/winter wearing.
Last on my list is this pair of earrings. I’ve got lots of cheap pairs of earrings but not really any decent ones. I’ve had some nice ones in the past but I always seem to lose one of the pair! Usually when trying on clothes in shop changing rooms. These bow earrings are really cute and I really like them.
What’s on your Christmas wish list?
