Seeing as it’s now November, I can finally be outwardly excited about my birthday at the end of the month. I must have matured this year – as I definitely felt a bit brattish putting this wish list together… I definitely don’t expect anything, and am always grateful to receive a gift! I was spoilt last year and a few things I received were actually from the birthday wish list I had put together, so I thought I’d make it an annual affair and do it again.
I’ve put together a mix of bits and bobs that may also give people some Christmas gift ideas for themselves or others. Let the indulgence begin!
1// Adidas Superstar 1. I have been longing for a pair of these for a while now, and thought I’d wait until my Birthday/Christmas to maybe ask for them. Annoyingly I had a pair of these the first time they were in fashion (a long time ago!), but I have a habit of doing mass chuck-outs and definitely threw or gave them away! Boo.
2// FujiFilm Instax Mini Polaroid Film. Ever since I received my Instax Mini Polaroid Camera as a house warming gift, I’ve been obsessed with it. These films are something I will always need, especially around the end of the year when there will be lots of festive social events going on! We have them all stuck up on a kitchen cupboard, and I love looking back and seeing what we were up to this time last year.
3// Clinique Repairware Laser Focus Night Line Smoothing Cream. Wow that is a mouthful. After stealing a freebie that came with one of my mum’s Clinique purchases ages ago, I had been using my Clinique moisturiser every night, before it inevitably ran out.. Sad times. At Gatwick I browsed the Clinique counter at Duty Free and realised how expensive the actual tub of goodness is. I’m more of a Boots-own kind of gal, so there’s no way I could justify paying £40+ on face cream! It’s totally worth it though – need to keep those pre-wrinkles at bay.
4// Simpsons Cartoon Print. This print has been lurking in my Etsy Favourites ever since last Christmas! I still love it as much as I did then, and think it would look super cute in our flat, framed on our picture wall.
5// Funding! Two of our amazing pals are getting married in South Africa next year, which will be an amazing trip of a life time for us all – but quite a pricey one. My main focus is getting the money together for the flight.
6// Whip It Up! The amazing Billy Green has released this crazy and fun ‘Easy Recipe Cook Book’ after his successful blog ‘Wit and Vinegar‘ became so popular. The book is a mash up of fun recipes and graphic visuals – making it the most ‘me’ cook book I’ve ever come across! There’s even a dog treat recipe section at the back, perfect for when we get our little pooch one day. Billy how did you know!?
7// Pillow Cases. I saw these on Etsy a while ago and I just thought they were so cute and funny. I do indeed love beards, and B does in fact have a beard, so what’s not to love? I get way too excited about bedding anyway, so lets just feed that habit even more.
8// Michael Kors black chain bag. I have ‘needed’ this bag for a good few years now, and I think the time has come for me to just get it over with and own one. Maybe I’ll start a Go Fund Me?
9// Lazy Oaf X Caspar tee. I love Lazy Oaf’s recent Caspar collab – their stuff is always super cute and I came across this adorable white tee that I have become rather attached to.
