Lifestyle: Christmas Wishlist ~ Fashion, Beauty & Lifestyle


I am actually down under for most of the festive season, so this list may seem a little redundant until I return from the land of Aus. I am actually hoping to pick a few of these up from duty free (hello lack of VAT).

Firstly, the Statement Black Spinel Pandora ring. I have actually fallen in love with this beautiful gemstone ring, circled with clear cubic zirconia. It is going to be a definite investment, a girl can never have too many rings (I say this already wearing four).

Now onto makeup, I fell in love with the limited edition VICE4 Eye Shadow Palette by Urban Decay as soon as I saw it, promising “20 addictively gorgeous, never-before-seen shades of iconic eyeshadow.” I love the mix of neutral and vivid tones, offering demure daytime to perfect-to-party looks in a flash. Unlike some other Urban Decay palettes, VICE4 handily comes with a huge mirror, double-ended shadow and crease brush and coordinating bag (even the casing makes my heart bleed).

Swinging to beautiful works of writing, Dirty Pretty Things by Michael Faudet is a book I have been eyeing for a while now. I think he is a wonderful writer, I adore his short stories and poems of dreamy romanticism with a dash of eroticism thrown in. I have always been a bit of a sucker for tales of love and after reading many a page already, I just know I will get lost in his book.

The Victoria’s Secret PINK Mock Neck Ultimate Deep Zip pullover in Black Orchid/Marl looks so ridiculously cosy. Everyone is optimistic about their January health plans and if (when) these fall through, at least I will be super snug. I love the deep zip, flattering slim fit and stretch fabric. Hey, it may even entice me to actively go outside.

Okay, so the velvet matte lipstick in Diva by Christian Louboutin, is a tad extortionate (okay, VERY extortionate), but isn’t is just beautiful?  This lipstick captures “the essence of the iconic red sole. Housed in a stunning metal bullet case threaded with a gold ribbon.” Diva offers a matte finish and contains “a complex of natural oils and seed butters enhance moisturisation for up to four hours.” It is a serious case of want, need, want.

What is on your Christmas wishlist? Are you doing anything special over the festive season?
