Oh how I love preparing my annual Christmas Wishlist blog post! It’s most definitely not difficult to think of a bunch of things I want. Some items I’ve wanted for ages, whilst others are recent must-haves.
A Celebration of Beatrix Potter Art and Letters – This has been on my Amazon wishlist for a few weeks now. I adore Beatrix Potter’s books and am quite fascinated by her life so I think this will be a great read. The book features illustrations of her beloved animal characters by over thirty of the world’s most well-known childrens illustrators.
Carolyn Donnelly Metallic Loafers – I spotted these beauties on a recent visit to Dunnes Stores. I must say, there was so much in the Carolyn Donnelly womenswear and homewares collections that I am coveting, but these loafers make the top of the list.
Too Faced La Créme in Honey Bear/Toasted Mauve – I’m always wanting new lipsticks. Like nailpolishes, there are an easy (and usually cheap) way to update your look. I’ve been wanting a mauve lipstick for a while now and this is one of the most wearable ones I’ve spotted.
Too Faced Snow Bunny – I’ve been a long-time user of Too Faced cosmetics and have been using Snow Bunny on and off since I was at university. If Santa wanted to put one of these bronzers in my stocking, I would be a very happy bunny!
NAO Elsa Figurine – Oh my word, how gorgeous is this Elsa figurine? I am a big NAO fan and have six of their ornaments. When I discovered their very elegant Elsa, it was love at first sight. Like most of us, I love the film Frozen and I think this would make a wonderful gift for so many people.
Fossil Perfect Boyfriend Watch – Barely is there a wishlist of mine that doesn’t include a Fossil watch. I’m obsessed with them and have a big collection, as does my other half Phill. This Christmas I’d love this large boyfriend watch with grey mother-of-pearl dial.
Orla Kiely Gold Rabbit Earrings – My favourtie deisgner Orla Kiely has expanded her jewellery range and these 14ct gold plated rabbit earrings have taken my fancy. I buy my daughter Rose lots of things with bunnies on them, but I’d like these beauties for myself!
Orla Kiely Leather Wallet – I’ve had my current mustard coloured Orla Kiely purse for years and it’s now beginning to show a bit of wear and tear. It’s pricey, but this wallet is the perfect size and structure for my needs. I want it, I want it, I want it!
