S E L F L E S S  C A R E: Week 3 of lockdown and my nails have left the chat...🥴 I whined a little but then realised if all I’ve got to worry about during this pandemic is beauty treatments and nail appointments then I’m on the better end of all the shit that’s going on. Grateful for health and laughter 🤍  #StaySafe #HappyNewWeek

S M O O T H  O P E R A T O R:  3 weeks post my first laser hair removal treatment @birminghamprivateclinic and my legs are still smooth AF 🙌🏾 I haven’t needed even a quick trim since. ⁣My only regret is why didn’t I go this SOONER?! My first session dispelled a lot of misconceptions I’ve always had about laser treatments. ⁣⁣1. It can definitely be done on dark skin. ⁣2. You can still get your bikini area (full Hollywood 😜) done on your period as long as you are comfortable 🙌🏾👌🏾 ⁣⁣What a weight off my shower routine this has been especially as my regrowth  is normally super quick. Have you ever had laser treatment?  #ad #gifted #laserhairremoval

There’s always a lot of different products being inboxed, advertised and shown in tutorials. But what are you actually using through and through? These are products I use on the regular and would definitely repurchase because they’re all so good!👌🏾 More empties on my stories (this is limited to 10 unfortunately) and all links to products are on my blog (link in bio). Let me know if you want to see more content like this regularly. What are your empties?? I love to know what everyone’s loving 🥰😍😍 xx .#SelfCareSunday #SkincareEmpties #beautyempties

My 2015 Christmas Wish List

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!

    All I want for Christmas is ‘him’.

    Lol, i’m serious. I just can’t seem to drum up excitement for anything material. What I really want for Christmas is more time to snuggle up to my man in bed, watch TV, and drink wine!

    Sigh. A girl can dream, can’t she?

    Amazing post my dear! Those Stuart Weitzman heels are adorable! I got the Decadence fragrance and it smells heavenly! Not to mention the brilliant bottle design 🙂 My fiancé asked me too what I would like to have for Christmas, so I guest sending him the link of this post would be just fine! 🙂
    Have a great day & nice to meet you!

    I would like new speakers with a subwoofer (aka the box that produces the bass sounds) for my computer. I love bass and both my sister and brother have one but not me. Art supplies that I don’t have would be nice too.
    By the way those are one pretty pair of heels that I want in my closet. Maybe when I get a job and save up money I’ll consider buying a pair. If they even come in my size (I have size 5 feet usually).

      oh yea I definitely need subwoofers and speakers too. I do love my bass 🙂 I am sure you’ll be getting those heels soon, thanks for stopping!
