Christmas Wishlist 2015

Christmas 2015

It's nearly that time of year wen everyone goes bananas or crackers should I say for Christmas jumpers and the Coca Cola advert. I can't say I'm a big fan of Christmas, as being raised in a buh-humbug family has certainly paid off. However I will without fail , every year decorate the Christmas tree and attempt to decorate my room. I have a variety of items that i would like this year and to make it easier for my mum, i thought i would do this instead of giving her a list. Also this way she has links direct to the items. Hi mum.

Jo Malone Peony & Blush Suede
Nothing new here. My staple scent and i just need another one as I'm nearly out of my other one. I would prefer the bigger bottle as it lasts longer, but the small bottles are cheaper and also handy to take when you go out and about. 

Zoeva Rose Gold Complete Eye Set Vol. 2
I will open my heart hear and say i do not need anymore makeup brushes. However, i do need these ones because well they are rose gold and also you can never ever have enough eye  brushes. I also don't actually have thats similar in my collection and they would be an investment in my eyes.

Chanel Soleil Tan De Chanel Bronze Universel

I think this goes on my christmas list every year and so far I've not received it. No valid reason for this except that i just want it. 

I don't travel much but when i occasionally go on holiday the normal headphones are such a pain. I have seen these around the bloggingsphere alot and of course it was the rose gold that drew me closer. Pretty expensive and i wouldn't be fussed if i didnt get in them. Infact, i actually don't want them at all. Why did i put them on my list then?

I am not a big fan of jewellery but i do like statement necklaces and then daily bracelets that are good for everyday use. I actually like quote alot of Monica Vinaders jewellery, but this grabbed my eye the most because its white and rose gold. What more could you want?!? Again, not something I'm lusting over or fussed if i get it.

I purely want this because of the warm tones and also the berry shades. I am a massive sucker for berry/burgundy eyeshadows at the moment and this just looks amazing. I actually think i would get so much use out of it aswell and i don't actually have anything similar within the stupid amount of eyeshadow palettes i own, so again, it would be an investment. Plus its really cheap!

tarte Best In Faux Lash Extending Fibers

I have been loving lash fibres at the moment and am so keen to try out lots of different ones so i can find the best brand. I haven't heard much about this, but i have heard alot about taste mascaras being really good, so its just a product i would like to try out. 

I have previously owned this and i decided to throw it out not that long ago. I really regret my decision and now i would quite like it again, so i can bake some bags under my eyes.

I picked up on of these whilst i was in NYC and I'm in love. I want every shade possible. I was honestly so surprised at how amazing they are. Not exactly cheap, but they are so worth it!

Stila Magnificent Metals Foil Finish Eye Shadow

I have wanted these for sooooo long. I love the look of them and the way they work looks so intriguing. Anything thats shiny gets my attention straight away and these have certainly grabbed my eye. I would like to try them all but i have to pick it would be the gold one and burgundy one.
The infamous Glastonberry lipstick. I absolutely love the look of this and its a matte. Charlottes products are all flawless and i have so far been very impressed with them all. I would love to try her lipsticks next up from her product range.
If i could just have every product from ABH that would be so great. I have heard so many people using these eyeshadows and loving them and for that very reason, i would quite like them all. 
This pillow is £300-400. That is ridiculous. I only put it on my list as it was rose gold.

I am loving the look of fur at the moment and the way it looks in connection with homeware and home decor. I think this would add some great texture to my room and it also looks really warm and snuggly. 

Since I've heard so much about Beccas highlighters, i think its about time i jump onto this bandwagon and give them ago. What a better way then to try 3 at once. I really want Champagne Pop and thought why not get 3 to try. Cheaper and more product then just buying one. It would be silly not to if you logically think about it. 

I recently picked my friend up a tarte blush when i went to NYC and she has said how amazing it is. I am annoyed i didnt pick one umm but when i saw this, again, a palette is a great way to try products and also different colours. Lots of nice wearable colours, which are great for everyday and evening purposes.

All i need to say is I love it. 

Considering I've technically asked for 3 highlighters, i most probably don't need this, but its staple MAC item which i feel my collection is missing. 

Now i know i actually have got this as my main present. I really want a camera that i can tea out here and there to capture photos and also take pictures for my blog. I did my typically blogger research and have narrowed it down to this one. It was actually Hayley from Frock Me Im Famous that made me want it with her blog post (linked here). She really sold it to me and i can't wait to get it and start snapping!

So there we have my not so long christmas wishlist. I know i won't get any of this besides from the camera, but its nice to see what other people have asked for and then interesting to see what they receive. I hope you enjoyed this post and if you have done a christmas wishlist, please leave a comment with you links and i will have to be nosy and have a look. Hope you all had a lovely day.

Thanks for reading!

Autumn Lipsticks

Now that Autumn is fully here and its started snowing, i thought i would do a post dedicated to my top Autumn lipsticks. I am a love of deep reds and burgundy shades, so narrowing this down was actually harder then i thought. What makes it even harder, it owning 4 lipsticks of the same shade.

First up is of course the infamous Ruby Woo from MAC. I can't say enough about this as its such a staple in my lipstick collection. Its a matte formula and actually suitable for all times of the year. I love this and its one that i always go to if I'm unsure and what to wear some colour on my lips.

Next up is Yves Saint Laurent Rouge Pur Couture The Mattes Lipstick in 206. I first saw Zoella wear this and it was actually the one shade of lipstick i didnt have. I debated on this for a while and whether i could justify £25 on a lipstick, but i convinced myself that i did. I am so glad that i did, as its most probably my favourite winter lipstick. Its a matte one again, but it doesnt feel drying on the lips, infact its very moisturising and doesn't feel like you have anything on. 

Next up is a lipstick i picked up last year from Toyshop. Its part of their velvet liquid lipstick collection. I am not sure whether you can still get it, but a good dupe is the Sleek Matte Me in Rioja. Unfortunately, i don't think they do either of these anymore, which is annoying. This is the perfect deep red lipstick which is great for Autumn and Winter. Its a matte finish, which is my favourite type of finish is a lipstick. The only con i have about this is that is very drying on the lips, so you don't want to have chapped lips or dry lips before applying this. 

Up next is another MAC lipstick and I'm sure everyone and their pets fish uncle called Derek has this. The infamous Rebel lipstick. Truth be told, i have never worn this lipstick. I love the look of this, but its not a matte finish and I'm lazy and i panic that I'm going to end up with purple up to my eyelids. A very warm autumnal purple/pink/berry/plum shade which i love the look  of and need to actually wear it at some point!

MAC's Diva is another favourite of mine. I would say this is very similar to the YSL lipstick, just has more red tones in it. Again, its a matte lipstick, so my favourite formula. Its very easy to wear and moisturising for the lips. 

Next up is my favourite lipliner of the season. MACs Burgundy lipliner is very autumn appropriate. Its more of the brown side of the red category but it is so nice even to wear on its own. Its great for all of the above lipsticks and its great for giving that extra bit of darkness should you want that in your lipsticks.

Finally is a completely inappropriate MAC lipstick in Haute Core. Its a black lipstick and its a cream sheen formula i believe. Its also limited edition, so you can't get your hands on it anymore. This is more for the daring people out there. I most probably wouldn't wear this, as its not my favourite formula and its actually a pain to keep on top off. 

So, there we have my top autumn lipsticks. I have more but didn't want to bore you with 10 of the same deep red shades. I love autumn as its acceptable to wear the darker shades of lipsticks and if i could, i would wear them all year round. I would love to know your favourite lipsticks and what you think of them. Thank you so much for reading and have a great weekend!

What's On My Vanity

After giving my room a well needed makeover, the one item which i wanted to be the main focus was my vanity. It is the first thing you see as soon as you walk into my room and also the item I'm the most proud of.

Many bloggers have the ikea malm dresser and they can all tend to look the same. I want to keep my clean and simple, but still have items on it which will make it different from every other person out there. I like it to be clean and simple, which is hard considering my bedroom floor is the complete opposite.

In my draws, i have organised (badly) my makeup into little sections. I need to find some trays or something that i can actually put m makeup in instead of having these little dividers which are a pain to get them how you want. I am in love with how this looks and it just makes me so happy, which is so silly, but nothing is better then having organised makeup! I will go into more detail on this in a separate post.

On top of my vanity is very simple and clean. I like to display my makeup brushes in these ikea plant pots. I love having them on display as it makes it so much more nicer to look at and break the area up into sections. I also have 2 pictures in frames which actually need to go on my wall, but i am just waiting to get more frames and pictures for the rest of my wall. I also have my copper lamp my heart and eyes swoon at anything copper/rose gold which just adds a nice touch of colour, as my room is very white with pops of colour here and there.

Overall, i have a very clean and simple vanity with not alot on it. I try and keep it like this all the time, so it gives me area of calmness when I'm in my room. I really want to start on YT again, so i will perhaps do a "vanity tour" for more in depth review. I hope you enjoyed this post and thank you for reading.
