My Christmas 2017 Wish List

And another Christmas is upon us, where did that year go, huh?

Every year as I get older I miss the days of spending hours flicking through the Argos catalogue, because I seem to be losing the ability to respond to the question of ‘what do you want for Christmas?’, so I now have the new tradition of sticking it all in a blog post and that way my family have a convenient reference point and I get some fun content out of it!

So what’s on the list this year?

Matthew and I have already agreed that as we both want new earphones, that’s what we’re going to get each other to save the hassle of shopping. I’ve got my eye on the new Fitbit Flyer wireless earphones which were released a few months ago – I’ve seen loads of great reviews for them and I’m hoping they’ll help in my marathon training! And speaking of marathon training, I’m thinking that I might want a small hydration pack for carrying water (and all my other stuff!) on longer runs. Also on the fitness subject, I’ve got my eye on this pretty Fiorelli gym bag!

As per usual, I’m always good with Lush goodies, and my favourite new product from their Christmas collection this year is the Buck’s Fizz body conditioner because it smells SO GOOD. I’m also loving the Angels on Bare Skin facial cleanser right now so wouldn’t say no to a tub of that!

And books, I always love a book.. On the wishlist at the moment is Eat Like a Gilmore: The Unofficial Cookbook for fans of Gilmore Girls because a) I love a recipe book and b) I love Gilmore Girls and this book seems like a good’un. I’m also on a mission to learn to draw, and I’ve seen a few ‘Learn to Draw Disney..’ books on Amazon that look like really great step by step guides.

The last thing on the list will probably be a Christmas present to me from me because I haven’t yet decided what I want and either way its pretty pricey! I’m desperate for a new lens for my Sony A5000 camera, and am currently torn between the 30mm macro and the 50mm – if anyone has any thoughts on the matter please drop me a comment!

My Christmas Wishlist

Tis the season for hint dropping! Falalalala and all..

In all fairness, each year I publish my wishlist so my family can use it as a guide, so this post really kills two birds with one stone, but as I had a pretty mega birthday present this year (hello Lego Disney Castle), I’m really not asking for, or expecting much this year, so I’ve just looked at a few little stocking filler-type gifty bits!

My Christmas Wishlist 2016

Ok, totally gimmicky and probably not very practical, but with 2017 being another year full of races, I’m kinda drawn to light up shoe laces so I can shine my way through Disney, and amazingly, you can get them on Amazon for about £8, which is way less than I thought they’d be!

I may have a few novelty phone cases, but they’re all bulky silicone ones that I don’t use often, and my current plastic one has been dropped a few too many times and is cracked pretty badly now – well, I’d rather that than my phone itself.. Skinnydip have quite a few cute ones, but I came across the Catnut and Caticorn in the sale for under £10 and I think they’re my faves, as well as bargains! Speaking of cute, how adorable is Vinyl Pop Meeko?

Anna Kendrick is now an author? YESSS. Gotta get my hands on Scrappy Little Nobody, she is my sarcastic spirit animal and I think it’ll be a proper giggle.

The last few bits represent a few of my struggles in life: 1. My favourite mascara, Eyeko Black Magic, isn’t available in regular stores like Boots or even Feel Unique, so I’ve been getting by on a tube I’ve had for longer than I care to admit because I can’t be bothered to order it from Selfridges. 2. I’m a nightmare at not only hoarding stationery, but also choosing it. I have to fully vet any potential planner, and having had success with Kikki K before, this Cute planner (actually its name, not just my go-to description) seems like a good choice, although I’m also kinda lusting over the Peony Happiness Planner (not pictured), but as both are undated, at least I’ve got options, ha! 3. I am a cliche rose gold obsessed girl who dreams of being a princess, and the shrewd among you may have noticed this ring on my wishlist last year. It was from my favourite jewellery store on Etsy, so my heart dropped into my stomach when suddenly the store disappeared, but I’ve recently discovered they’ve got their own website now, so yay!

My Christmas Wishlist

If it isn’t already abundantly clear, I love Christmas. Well, who doesn’t really?!

And in these modern times, I’m sure Santa spends more time checking blog wishlists than he does reading physical letters! So here’s mine:

xmas list 2015

1. Reversible Troll soft toy from The Disney Store

I’m totally obsessed with this little guy, I think he’d make the best travel pillow for my trip in January!

2. Lets Do Lunch business card holder from Kate Spade

Simple and elegant, this makes my inner business-woman very happy!

3. Duff Bakes cookbook from Amazon, among other sellers

Ever since the first time I watched an episode of Ace of Cakes, I have worshipped Duff, and now he’s released a book, I need it in my life!

4. Honey I Washed My Hair shampoo bar from Lush

I love Lush, but as I’m not a bath person, its their haircare and shower products that do it for me! I had a shampoo bar years back and loved it, so definitely up for trying another one.

5. Best Day Ever raglan shirt from Happily Ever Tees

I’ve discovered these guys on Instagram and I’m dying to wear this shirt in the parks in January!

6. Crown ring from Applelatte on Etsy

I’m a huge fan of this store on Etsy, they make amazingly pretty jewellery, and this ring in the rose gold colour is beautiful!

7. Funko Pop Maximus from Amazon, among other sellers

When the Tangled collection was released recently I rushed to get Rapunzel, so now I just need this little cutie!

8. Red Converse All Star High Tops

My shoe collection is pretty much 90% Converses, and I’m not even ashamed of that, so if Santa could bring me red high tops in a size 6, they’ll be much appreciated for my January Disney trip!

9. Sugar Daddy-O solid conditioner from Lush

Another hair product – I can’t live with dirty hair, and I like to believe maybe a solid conditioner will reduce the amount of bottles I get through!

Are you asking Father Christmas for anything special this year?
