My Christmas Wishlist!

Hey guys!

I thought I’d write my Christmas Wishlist here for fun :3 I don’t expect anybody to buy me anything on this list, but it’s fun to use your imagination to think about what you’d pick for yourself if you were your own Santa! Heck, I’ll probably end up treating myself to many things on this list in the end anyways!


 

  1. Lush Eyes Right Mascara:
    eyesrightI really want to try this mascara! I love Lush’s makeup, and use the Light Yellow Colour Supplement and the Sugar Plum Fairy Lip Tint pretty much daily! I know that I would use this mascara, and the Oxford Street store has a nice version of Eyes Right that comes in a long tube with a longer mascara wand. Perfect seeing as the Oxford Street store is the quickest one for me to get to!
  2. Lush Independent Eyeliner:

    Again, I’d just love to try more of Lush’s makeup range, because it really seems to work very well for me! It agrees with my skin for the most part, and definitely enhances my more positive facial features whilst dulling down the more negative ones. Also, I haven’t used liquid eyeliner in so long and I feel like having one from Lush would encourage me to be a bit more adventurous with my makeup! All I use at the moment is foundation (which I never used before obtaining it from Lush, and now I could hardly live without it,) and a lip tint (never used to use bold colours and again, couldn’t go without using it now!)
  3. Lush Emotional Brilliance Translucent Powder:

    Another makeup product! I’ve heard so many amazing things about this powder so I’m absolutely dying to try it out! The packaging on the powder I use at the moment always cracks and although the colour is a perfect match to my skin tone, it leaves the texture of my face looking… Meh… I’ve heard that Lush products combine and work best with other Lush products, so I’m really excited to see how Emotional Brilliance Translucent Powder will look on top of my Light Yellow Colour Supplement.
  4. Lush Veganese Conditioner (1kg) :

    Kinda like the above picture, only a 1kg version 😉 I absolutely adore this conditioner – in fact, it is my favourite conditoner from Lush, and thus my favourite conditioner full stop! I’d love to just stock up and have tons and tons of the stuff so that it will be more cost effective and last me longer before I next need to repurchase any. I also haven’t actually used a conditioner in my hair since… Well… A really, really long time ago (between 6 and 9 months ago…) I’d really appreciate being able to condition my hair with a quality conditioner again!
  5. Eau Roma Water Toner Water (250g) :

    I really, really miss having a toner. Especially THIS toner. A 250g supply would last me far longer than my 100g one did. I just feel like this is such an essential product for me and I hate not being able to use it!
  6. Jason And The Argan Oil Shampoo Bar:

    I haven’t been using a shampoo for a while – ever since my Brazilliant shampoo bar ran out about a week ago. I’ve just been using shower gel in my hair since then! I do have little bits of shampoos here and there, but I’d love a nice fresh shampoo bar 🙂 I’ve never tried Jason And The Argan Oil – but it smells SO good!
  7. A £75 Primark Gift Card:

    Honestly, I just absolutely love myself some Primark! I find shopping there to be fairly stressful, but very, very fun. They always seem to have something I like and I’m still in search of some new pieces to replace some old items of clothing I have, so a Primark Gift Card would just be absolutely perfect for me! Who doesn’t love doing a good Primark haul?!
  8. Sony Cybershot W830 8x Zoom Compact Digital Camera (Pink) :
    camera
    Okay, so the only camera I have really is the camera on my phone – which is decent, but not that great. I’d love to have my first adult dedicated camera! This one just has some really good reviews, and  just seems like a great choice for a first camera to me. I love taking photos and would really like to get even more invested in taking photos and videos!
  9. Casio CTK-1200AD Full Size Starter Keyboard:
    keyboardI don’t really know how to play any instruments, but I’m really interested in learning how to play one. I feel like a keyboard would be a nice instrument to begin with!
  10. Ever Us 14ct Yellow Gold 1.50ct Two Stone Diamond Twist Ring:

    …Because a girl can dream, amiright?

So, there’s my Christmas Wishlist! Of course, I don’t actually expect to get any of these items – it’s just really fun to make a list! Don’t knock it until you try it. What an insane Christmas that would be though!

What do you want for Christmas? Have you made a Christmas Wishlist? If you have or if you do, please send me the link in the comments below – I find these so fun to look through!

What I got for Christmas.

Hello! 🙂

I still have loads of new things that I’ve received over the past couple of months, but today’s blog post is all about Christmas presents! I am so grateful for all I have received and this is not me boasting in any way. I am very aware that many people do not receive any presents nor have the ability to give any. I’m just innocently excited and want to show what I’ve got!

So! First up, I got a beautiful purple cover for my iPad mini. It is from the brand ‘belkin’ and comes with a built in stand. I’m so happy about this gift from my lovely boyfriend because I’ve been wanting a stand and a cover for my iPad for a while,  so that I can use my iPad in bed more easily and so that I wont be too scared to take it into classes with me! I feel as though the iPad mini is too fragile for me to be willing to carry it around with me without some protective casing on it.

Here is a photo of my iPad mini cover:

Other features of this iPad mini cover includes a cut-out hole for the camera and an elasticated binder to keep the case on the iPad securely when it isn’t in use.

The next item I got is a ‘Power Bank’. It is an external, portable battery for smartphones/iPads that holds a full charge. To use it, you use the cable provided to charge it up and once charged, you use your phone/iPad cable to connect the Power Bank to your device. This should definitely come in handy!

Here is a photo of it:

Next up is a ‘Mini Buddy Portable Speaker’ by ‘Kitsound’. It is a cute pink winking owl design with colourful hearts on it’s front. The cable for it is quite small so it is meant to stay close to your device. It also has a keyring attached to it, so you could carry it on your keys. It works pretty well!

Here is a photo of it:

(I added an enhancement to this photo to more accurately show the item’s colour.) Isn’t it adorable?!

Okay, so next up is a recipe book which was a gift from one of my friends. It is a vegan recipe book, because I am a vegan! I was actually brought up vegetarian, and went on to being a vegan when I was around 13 years old. It is called ‘easy vegan, simple recipes for healthy eating’. The recipes in this book look so clean, fresh, healthy and delicious! I will definitely get some good usage out of this book when I’m back to Uni.

Here is a photo of the recipe book:

(I have again enhanced this photo and cropped it to better show the item in the photo. I will continue to do this for all photos).

The next item is ‘Beyonce Heat eau de parfum vaporisateur natural spray’. It is the 100ml version of the spray. I love perfumes/sprays/any scents that smell good that I can use on myself! I love to smell clean and I think that most scents are perfect at doing just that. This perfume comes in an ombre red and clear bottle in an upside-down prism shape. It has quite a strong scent that is very fruity and sweet. I’m not very good at explaining scents so this will sound peculiar, but it sort of smells…fizzy… It literally smells like a delicious, fizzy, warm, berry flavoured drink haha! I think it smells lovely and was a gift from my man. 🙂

Here is a photo of the perfume:

Next is my new coat. I had seen this coat in a popular high street store and fell in love with how adorable it looked. The only reason whyI hadn’t bought it was because I had spent quite a bit at the time on gifts for others, and because I felt as though I wasn’t allowed to almost? Because I had only just gotten a beautiful new coat a few weeks before!  It is made from a thick, fluffy material and has a pastel pink and pastel grey tartan design. It is in the style of a duffle coat in the sense that it is done up using poppers and toggles. This coat has been made extremely well! Mine is in a size 10.

Here is a photo of the beautiful coat (also from my lovely boyfriend!):

The next item is a cute little notebook. It is a little A6 notebook with lined paper (with rounded corners), a ribbon bookmark and an elastic binder. The cover of the notebook is made of a black, thick, sort of spongey plastic. It’s in the colour black. This is a really lovely little notebook!

Here is a photo of it:

I also got a couple of pens that I will quickly show.

Here is a photo of the pens:

That’s just about everything! Bye bye!

My Christmas break. :)

So, I have a while off from Uni for Christmas – 33 more days in fact! I actually began my break 4 days ago, and I’ve spent those days resting as I’ve caught a bug. 😦

I plan to spend my break mostly studying all the material we have covered in our course so far, so that I can be confident on it all before the next teaching term begins. I’ve also got quite a bit of Christmas shopping that I need to get done very soon! I think I’ll have to make tomorrow be my shopping day. I’m in urgent need of buying some Christmas presents, buying some study supplies and of getting some fresh air! Besides, there’s nothing like a good shopping spree to help myself recover from feeling unwell. 😉

I’ve actually been super cheeky and over the past six weeks or so I’ve treated myself to quite a few new items. I will make a separate post detailing those items at a later time.
