My husband asked me yesterday I knew what I wanted for Christmas and I realised I really didn’t.
I haven’t put much thought into what I’d like to get this Christmas. Even though I have been browsing a few holiday gift guides, I’m still uncertain. For me receiving gifts is a chance to get people to gift me items I’d be reluctant to get for myself but that I really liked!
Based on that, here is my 2015 Christmas Wish List:
Stuart Weitzman Nudist heels in Pewter (£270) – Because they are timeless. Also because I have been hopeless in love with metallics for a while now. This strappy heels would complement so many pieces in my wardrobe right now. Plus seeing as it’s nearly sold out everywhere, it needs prioritizing. It’s definitely my top choice.
Marc Jacobs Decadence Fragrance (£81 per 100ml)– I know fragrances are a safe and expected buy for everyone at Christmas but Marc Jacobs’ latest offering has me wanting to blend in with everyone and get this baby. It may be the fact that it’s designed like a mini purse. Whatever it is, Marc Jacobs has got everyone buzzing about ‘Decadence’. Who can blame them? It smells gorgeous! Plus I might be able to squeeze out a second gift if I pick a fragrance 😉
A Self-portrait dress (£180 – £400) – Because who doesn’t love a Self-Portrait dress? They are so beautifully structured and are the perfect juxtaposition of textures. It’s sheer details and sexy see-through layering are some of the hottest spring trends that have carried over to the winter.
Yves Saint Laurent Monogram Suedette bag (£1,250) – This is just reaching because I know we can’t afford this splurge at the moment but you never know… Aim for the moon and you just might get a star. But seriously, I’ve just never treated myself to a high-end bag. I keep saying my next ‘big buy’ will be a bag but I always end up getting shoes. So this will stay on my list as I need an upgrade in the bag department and this tan mini monogram classic is giving me all kinds of green light.
Olivia Burton Bee Motif Watch (£135) – Because nothing says #TeamBey better than a bee motif watch…haha. But seriously I’ve been in love with this watch for about a year now but it’s just never made my ‘Purchased items’ list. It’s one of those things that you REALLY like but you can still get good night’s sleep if you don’t buy them. The perfect Christmas gift.
Christian Louboutin So Kate (£525) – Because what is a wish list without the ultimate must-have red sole? I want the patent nude So Kate heels so bad. And the purple velvet So Kate Louboutins would also be a lovely addition to my collection.
Make-up shopping spree (Especially the Joan Smalls Estee Lauder Matte lipstick collection)– Because I’m now addicted to makeup and beauty products, wouldn’t it feel nice if someone gave me a right treat at Sephora, House of Fraser, Selfridges or MAC? There are so many beauty items that I so NEED to get. Like a highlighter, countless number of lipsticks, the new Estee Lauder matte collection, The Anastasia Beverly Hills World Traveller palette, Colourpop Cosmetics Nillionaire eyeshadow, Lime …the list is endless. My only request is, they HAVE TO look as good on me as they look on Joan though. I already got the vibrant violet shade Stronger… couldn’t wait.
A trip to Waterstones – Because I’ve been so busy being an adult that I haven’t had the time to read any books at all! I really do miss reading and would just love to go into a bookshop and browse for hours. Yes, I love book shopping. There is something about book stores that makes me want to spend hours in them. Buying stationery, cut little journals, fancy organisers and novels always puts me in a good place. This Christmas I’d like to slip in a good few additions to my library AND make the time to read them.
What is on your Christmas wish list this year? Will you aiming for the ‘big splurges’ or keeping it simple with a Christmas jumper? Remember, what you get depends on how nice you have been this year… If you’ve been naughty, good luck!
