Christmas Wishlist 2014

Screen Shot 2014-11-20 at 23.11.19

It feels strange, but this year I didn’t really have a lot to put on my Christmas wish list. It seams liberating; is this what growing up feels like?

But I did managed to put a little list of things I definitely wouldn’t mind finding underneath the Christmas tree together.

  • I’ve been lusting over a new camera for a few months now and have this is my favourite – Sony A5000. I think it would be perfect for taking with us on trips and vacations and it would also serve as an extra boost to take more photos.
  • During the last year there has been a noticeable growth in the Longchamp tote popularity. Every other fashionista seams to be carrying a form of the bag and you can’t deny the charm of the lightweight foldable contraption. I have my heart set on the Longchamp La Pliage Neo in black.
  • Don’t think I need to explain this – Topshop Teddy Robe. It’s soft, fluffy and with bear ears. Sold.
  • I am a lip product junkie and at the moment I own way too many lipsticks. But I’ve heard so many good reviews about the Charlotte Tilbury Matte Revolution in Sexy Sienna and if Santa gets me one, I won’t complain.
  • Chanel CC earrings, a girl can dream. They are so small and dainty, I love earrings that you can wear everyday, but that still give you that little extra detail. (And you can’t go wrong with Chanel)
  • My recent fragrance obsession – Givenchy Dahlia Divin. I still love it and it would be amazing to get my hands on the little travel size spray.

What do you hope to find under the tree?

Handbag Essentials

I have always been a big bag lover – my Mulberry Bayswater is my favourite handbag and it holds everything I would ever need and it used to come with my everywhere. But recently I got my hands on the beautiful Whistles Rivington in the croc embossed leather (similar here) and it has change my life.

Now, don’t get me wrong, I still love and use my Bayswater, but on days when I’m only going to the shop down the road, or leave the house for a short journey I grab my Rivington. And since there is quite the size difference between the two I had to pick out my top must haves – the essentials.

The standard selection, that forms half the contents of the bag, contains phone, purse, keys – so I have my iPhone 5s, a Mulberry card holder (similar here), that I got in one of their outlet stores and my keys with a Louis Vuitton cles, that was an anniversary present, attached to them.

The other half can be grouped under the beauty product title. I have my NARS setting powder compact that doubles up as a mirror, I also carry my favourite perfume of the moment, Givenchy’s Dahlia Divin (it is absolutely amazing) and two lip products – Omorovicza’s Perfecting Lip Balm and Fresh Sugar Lip Treatment in Cherry, which is my ultimate everyday red lip choice – it’s moisturising, has SPF 15 and is red, what else would you need?

(In the last month my make up routine has also become much more laid back; if previously I couldn’t leave the house with out lining my eyes, then now I’ve been opting for a simple curl and mascara on my eyes and a red balm on the lips.)

What are your absolute handbag must haves?

The Autumn Edit

It’s been a while, but I’m back. And it’s autumn.

It has to be one of my favourite times of the year. I love putting an extra layer on, additional cups of tea for keeping warm, candles and dark evenings with books. It also means that you can allow yourself to spend a little bit of money on new clothes, because you need them, right? Continue reading
