my christmas wish list

my christmas list 2014

I didn't intend for my wish list to look like that of a typical teenage girly girl - but that's me I guess!
I thought this would be helpful for any of you struggling to think of what to get others or to put on your own list (first world problems, eh?) Strangely I'm not in that christmas spirit yet... I'll need to go shopping for gifts some evening and dedicate a day to lying up with festive films. Actually that's one of the things I'm looking forward to most right now - getting my A Level mocks over with so I can relax without feeling guilty.

A fujifilm polaroid camera has been on my wish list for a long time now. I've been so in love with polaroids (along with the majority of teenage girls recently) and although part of me thinks they might just be a novelty, I know people who take loads of them. There's something whimsical about the pictures and I can imagine keeping a scrapbook or sticking them up around my bedroom. I really don't take enough photos but I could totally fix that with one of these!

You may have noticed from my lack of beauty posts recently that I haven't been feeling passionate about any make-up products. I've been lusting after a YSL rouge volupte lipstick for over a year now and the colour extreme coral is my favourite currently. Their packaging is so damn pretty I could just sit and admire them all day long. My sister has the benefit brow zings kit and I think it's perfect - I should probably get my own one so I can stop sneaking into her room in the morning to use it. The hype surrounding the naked 3 palette is long over but the colours are perfect and I'm looking for a new eyeshadow palette. Nars is so well known for their bronzers and blushes, especially laguna and orgasm (that name, I know). I've wanted one of their products for the longest time so even if I don't get one for christmas I'm going to treat myself anyway.

Alexa Chung's book It was very popular last year but the mixed reviews and the price (I think the hardcover was £11, so not exactly going to break the bank but it's more than I'd like to spend on a book) put me off buying it straight away. I was always planning to get it (hehe It, get it?) but just never got around to it. I said 'it' too many times in that last sentence. Anyway I'd really like her book this year. Rookie Yearbook Three is high on my list - I don't need to rave about how wonderful rookie is cause doesn't everyone know by now? The yearbook makes christmas morning so much better, flicking through all the articles and pictures. Pretty Honest is a book I've seen on a few other blogs and I'm really intrigued by it.

Others things I'd love would be a subscription to vogue, sims 4 (bit nerdy) and the friends boxset. I've been watching reruns of friends on comedy central (and before that E4) for years now but I've still not seen every episode. It's just one of those familar, funny shows that instantly makes me feel better.

Do we want any of the same things for christmas? Are you excited yet?

  1. I was considering asking for a Polaroid camera this year but my friend got one for her birthday and she said the film is so expensive that it's not really worth it!
    ...Despite that, I've now started looking into the polaroid printers that you can link to your phone and print from there because they just seem so cute!

    1. Yeah the film is ridiculously expensive, you'd have to save them for the best moments! That's why I'm skeptical over how much I'd actually use it... but they're just so cute! And those are so cool, if I had an iphone/smartphone I'd definitely look into getting one of them :) x

  2. A fujifilm Polaroid camera is on my wishlist too! Ah and I also want Sims 4! Fingers crossed we get both! :D


  3. I've just bought Rookie Yearbook 3 and it certainly lives up to it's hype! I love it :)
