Christmas Wishlist 2018

Thursday, 14 December 2017

I can't quite believe it's taken me until now, the 14th December, to actually put together a Christmas wishlist post. I mean, usually I like to give you all a fair amount of time to get your presents sent over to me, you know? (I am kidding). In all honesty, I wasn't going to do one to begin with because there wasn't really that much that I wanted, but typically just a mere 11 days before Christmas I've come up with 10 things I really want... typical me!

First up - a new camera. Whilst I love my DSLR, I am really in need of a more compact camera that takes amazing pictures that I can just keep in my handbag on-the-go, and this from Panasonic completely fits the bill. It's a lot of money, I will admit, but I've been doing a lot of research into really good compact cameras and this is the one I keep going back to. I've had compact cameras in the past that have been good, but not great, when it comes to imagery - and I really want something that is on par with, if not better than, my DSLR. This has so many amazing features (I mean, it lets you choose your focus point AFTER you've taken a picture for one thing, which is nothing short of camera wizardry in my opinion) and despite the price I am seriously tempted... please, Santa?

Of course it wouldn't be a wishlist post of mine without at least a few unicorn-themed items. I whittled it down to two (I was very restrained) and first up is this super cute multi-coloured candle. I am a sucker for a candle, and a sucker for a unicorn, so I feel like it's perfect for me. I probably wouldn't want to light it though! Speaking of which, I've just realised the next unicorn item I've chosen is also a candle... albeit a much pricier, more sophisticated-looking one. I've never had a Diptique candle before in my life (sob) but as soon as I saw this one it went straight to the top of my list. It's a limited edition one for Christmas I believe and it's just so pretty. Want!

Moving onto the Miss Bunny cuddly toy now... okay, so I might be 27, but that doesn't mean I can't still have cuddly toys. Does it?! I received Thumper off my boyfriend about 4 years ago now, and I've been wanting to hunt down Miss Bunny to go alongside him ever since. They only ever used to have her in the US Disney Stores but they recently got her in the UK and I am oh-so happy about it.

Another thing on my list has got to be this stunning rose gold Pandora flower ring. I got a rose gold princess ring from Pandora for my birthday, and I haven't taken it off since. It's well and truly given me the bug for Pandora jewellery and this super pretty flower ring is next on my list!

Moving on to beauty now, I think the beauty Christmas present of the year has got to be the Stila Written in the Stars Liquid Eyeshadow set. It's sold out pretty much everywhere, although I've managed to hunt it down on Cult Beauty for anyone still wishing to get their mitts on it. Just how beautiful do the shadows look though?! Sticking with beauty, I also added this cute little Pixi set to my list because I've wanted to try the Pixi Glow Tonic for actual years now and I still haven't got around to it, so this would be the perfect opportunity. It comes with a Peel and Polish and Rose Flash Balm too.

My current purse is looking rather bruised and battered so I thought this pretty pastel offering from River Island would be perfect, plus it goes really well with a bag I just got from River Island too. I do think they are the place to go on the highstreet for handbags and purses!

I threw some super pretty books I've been swooning over for a while now onto the list, because if you can't get away with completely unnecessary purchases at Christmas time, when can you? And finally, I also included the Polar A370 Fitness Tracker in here too because I've been looking at it for ages now and really feel like I need it in my life. I've tried a basic heart rate monitor from Polar before and absolutely loved it, but I hate having to put the heart rate belt on every time I wanted to work out. This little baby has it built in which I think is incredible, and definitely enough to motivate me to go to the gym!

What are you wishing for this Christmas? Let me know!
