....here's what I would (ideally) like to see under the tree* this Christmas:
Paco Rabanne - Olympea
I've got a funny feeling this wish will be fulfilled come December 25th as I've mentioned to my Mum that I want it & I know how sneaky she can be. I'm hoping she doesn't buy the 80mL because the small 30mL size would not only make me a happy chica, but it wouldn't totally break the bank either.
Aspect Try Me Kit
This Aussie dermatological skincare brand is expensive AF. This trial kit, thankfully, is pretty cheap. I figure it'd be a good way for me to try the Extreme B & C serums, both of which come with this pack & both types of vitamins I need to inject into my beauty diet now that I'm getting older
Forever New Becca frill maxi dress
I've tried this on. It's gorgeous. The vibrant blue colour is right up my alley & the length is perfect for my 179 1/2cm/roughly 5'11" frame. Me gusta!
Little Party Dress Andy Blue Stripe Maxi Dress
I mentioned this back in one of my Lust List posts & yep, I'm still lusting after it + whole bunch of LPD stuff.
An electric toothbrush
A boring/basic stocking filler for someone else = a practical, useful item for this Virgo. Given that I'm broke with expensive taste, naturally I have my eye on the Phillips Diamond Clean. Any colour will do, but I admit I am kinda partial to the Amethyst. EDIT: I now own an electric toothbrush, but it's not from Phillips.
A beauty box subscription perhaps?
Having read Beth's recent post about Peony Parcel, I'm thinking I want one now! I had been looking at Maslow & Co, but (a) they've jacked up their price since starting late last year & (b) the upcoming Global Beauty Box has caused a bit of controversy amongst beauty lovers as they've included a well-known non-cruelty free brand, which considering Maslow & Co are all about the natural/non-cruelty free brands...you get my drift.
All of these ZOEVA makeup brushes - in rose gold, where possible
To makeup (haha so puntastic) for not finding them whilst in Amsterdam & Berlin...
Some more FRANKiE4 shoes
I already own a pair of black reptile JENNi sneaks, but I'm lusting after the tin gold JENNi's, black reptile PENNi's & gold (or pewter) MARGiE's. Again, any one of these will do. EDIT: I now own the tin gold JENNi's.
Speaking of shoes…
I’d like a nice pair of block strappy heels in a neutral shade. Got my eye on some blush Walnut peep-toe wedges. EDIT: Tried on the latter, the colour is wrong for my skin tone.
Breville Freeze & Mix ice-cream bowl
As I've mentioned several times before, I enjoy getting in the kitchen & creating new & tasty things to eat. I've yet to have a go at making my own ice-cream & it's on my culinary bucket list, so this addition to my already kick-arse Breville mixer would be perfect. (FYI, I have a cranberry Scraper Mixer Pro that I bought almost 4 years ago.)
Every single Kester Black polish released this year + Monarch & Sorbet from last year
Just because. EDIT: I now own Monarch, Sorbet & Terrarium. Barbie isn't suitable for my skin tone sadly.
*We usually get a fresh tree, but seeing as my folks & I will be away for Christmas, there'll be no tree for us again this year.
