Christmas Wishlist 2016

Hello Beauties! Who's excited that we're getting closer to Christmas?! I am! Well I am excited but also feeling slightly nervous that we fly to Italy in 4 days, and I have done absolutely no planning or preparation whatsoever. Anyway, I thought I'd put together a little Christmas wishlist to show you what's on my letter to Father Christmas. Some of these are realistic and some not so, but we can dream right?! Obviously pretty much everything is makeup related - I am addicted after all.

The Guerlain Meteorites, the Tom Ford Nude Dip Eye Quad and the Hourglass Surreal Light Palette are my little dream purchases but I probably don't actually need them. I'm not going to lie I would probably want the Meteorites mainly because of the packaging - they always look good in people's Instagram pictures! I don't think I would be able to use them they just look too pretty.

As you can see there's a lot of Charlotte Tilbury, I still can't get enough of her products! The Legendary Muse Eye Palette is high on my list. At first when I swatched the shades in the shop I couldn't imagine what they would look like actually on. I have to say though, every picture I see of someone wearing the 'Dreamy Look' that Charlotte Tilbury has created I think it looks incredible and it has really made me want this. If Santa is feeling generous then the Dreamy Look in a Clutch gift set would be gratefully received but I think that's aiming a little too high ;) The lipgloss is Portobello Girl, the lip liner is in the shade Pillow Talk and the lipstick is Liv it Up from the Hot Lips collection.

Something else I have been eyeing up lately is the NARS Velvet Lip Guide in Unlaced. I really love NARS products and these just look so silky and well, velvety, that I'm really intrigued to try one. I've also been in love with this Chanel cream shadow in Emerveille for a while, but to be honest this would be a bit of a splurge as I already have so many colours like this. There's just something about this one that's so pretty! Something else that I don't really need but would LOVE to have is the Too Faced Better than Sex Mascara, everyone raves about it and this has convinced me I need it in my life!

Onto the non-makeup related items, I would love another Jo Malone candle as I have used my Pomegranate Noir one completely! The one pictured is Sweet Almond and Macaroon which sounds incredible but I also really love Peony & Blush Suede. Anyway,more importantly can we just talk about these chihuahua slippers from M&S. I honestly think I will die if I don't get these, they are just too cute! (Well die is probably a bit of an exaggeration but I'll just have to go and get them myself).

All I would say is that when compiling this list I realised how lucky I am to not actually need anything, these are just things I would fancy or be so happy to receive, but I pretty much do have everything I could ever want. I find as I get older when people as me what I want for Christmas or birthdays my main response is ermmmm.... I don't know! And I know this is a good thing. This year me and mum did a Christmas shoe box each for the Operation Christmas Child appeal, after seeing a video on Facebook of how happy a little boy was just to get a football at Christmas... something so simple we take for granted! It felt really good to put something together that would mean a lot to someone else and I hope we do it again next year. :)

What are you all hoping for for Christmas? I love seeing what other people have got on their lists!
