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