I wanted to start this off with a debate that I’ve recently seen across social media – when are you too old for a ‘Christmas Wishlist’? I personally have never considered it – I have always believed that wishlists are useful tools regardless of your age, and maybe even more useful as you get older! However, I saw a debate recently that said twenty-year-olds were ‘too old’ to create a ‘Christmas Wishlist’. I genuinely believe that my family would struggle if I didn’t give them a little ‘shove’ in the right direction, so regardless of my age, I plan to always create at least a little wishlist, and I love reading what everyone else wants as well..
I’m kicking off this year’s wishlist with a little practical addition to my bedroom, a pair of Maya Table Touch Lamps from Habitat in Argos! Presents get so much more boring as you get older, don’t they?! I sadly didn’t receive any lamps for my birthday, so my room is still in desperate need of light, but I definitely prefer these to the ones that I asked for earlier on in the year – I love the versatility of the colours, and not only do they fit in well with my current bedroom, but I hope that these will also be in keeping with my house when I eventually get round to moving out..
The second item on my wishlist this year, is the Spectrum 10 Piece Essential Brush Set! I feel like I’m cheating a little by putting these on my wishlist – I actually already know that my boyfriend has bought me them after I found an offer on Black Friday and very quickly sent him the link, but for £20 there was absolutely no way that I was going to miss out as I’ve wanted them for just about forever and they’re so beautiful! I’m super pleased that we managed to get them for that price, as not only did they go back up to full price in Boots a few days after, but they sold out on the same day at Beauty Bay..
Next up on my list is the Makeup Revolution Life On The Dancefloor Guest Palette – I have been dreaming about this palette ever since it first came out, and I cannot wait to finally get my hands on it! I have been debating between the Guest and VIP palette ever since I first spotted them in store, both because of the stunning shades inside as well as the gorgeous, glittery packaging which I just couldn’t resist, but I hope that I’ve finally made up my mind and may even treat myself to the second when I eventually have some money to myself..
I have made the huge decision to finally take out my stretchers, and become a grown up – I’ve had them in for about four years now, and they’re only tiny so they’ll go back down to normal size pretty quickly, but I definitely need some earrings as my ears feel naked without anything! I have my heart set on these gorgeous Infinite Love Stud Earrings from Pandora – I have always loved their jewellery, and I already own lots of their rings and an almost-full charm bracelet. I am a sucker for anything with a sparkle, and these really catch the light!
A fresh pair of pyjamas and new robe completes any ‘Christmas Wishlist’! I have been dreaming of owning a satin robe for just about forever, and I love the Lucy Tie Waist Kimono Robe from Boohoo – I just think they’re so pretty and sophisticated, and perfect for mooching around in while you’re getting ready! I also have my eye on some fresh pyjamas, and while I’ve struggled to find a pair of festive-themed pyjamas that I love which I obviously really wanted, I do love the Holly ‘You Snooze You Lose’ set..
I can’t wait to give everyone their presents this year, I’m super excited about them all already! I personally hate asking for anything ‘too’ expensive, or asking for ‘too’ much either, because I never want to be a burden on my loved-ones, but, hopefully, there are a few ideas here for my family and boyfriend..
Are you a fan of a ‘Christmas Wishlist’? If so, what’s on your list this year?
