Sam’s Christmas Wishlist 2016

With Christmas round the corner I thought I’d put my Christmas 2016 wishlist together. I’ve never done one before but have often got stuck when people ask me what I’d like – so this is just an aid to give you an idea if someone asks you!

Makeup and Skincare wishlist:

Filmstar Bronze and Glow -Medium to Dark – Charlotte Tilbury £49

I’d absolutely love to get this for Christmas – I love Charlotte tilbury makeup and I love a contour and a beautiful peach blush. The compact is just beautiful in Charlotte’s trademark rose gold packaging. Ooooh la la – you’d see my cheekbones from space with this palette!

Rest & Recharge Gift Set £35 Origins

I’m a faithful origins customer. I’ve been using the plantscription range for the past 2 years and I’m converted. Now that I’ve tried and tested this range, I’d like to try other creams from Origins. The Christmas gift sets are the best value for money and last year I may have picked up 4 gift sets which lasted me the entire year. So this time around I’d really like to try this set:

Merry and Bright Chritmas Cracker – Oskia Renaissance Cleansing Gel SpaceNK £18.50

This is a much hyped and beauty blogger fave so I’d really like to try this out and see what all the fuss is about. Plus, how cute is the cracker packaging?!

Elf Studio Bronzer £4.56 Amazon

I’ve been wanting to try the American brand Elf for ages and I really like the look of this bronzing palette as the brown shades look quite ashy and light. This is ideal for me as I tend to be heavy handed with my makeup so I’d be interested to try this out. I see this as a soft sculpting palette that’s easy on the wallet.

Clothes glorious clothes:

Mango Pussy Bow Blouse £35.99 ASOS

I need this – my love of tie neck blouses knows no bounds. Granted it’s a bit Austin Powers, but I’m sure I can pull it off!

Mango Lace Shirt £29.99 ASOS

This is equally gorgeous – a lovely blend of black lace and tie neck. Tres sexy!

Joanie Printed Roll Sleeve Shirt £18.00 Boohoo

I love this – the red and floral pattern means that you can either dress this up with a skirt or down with jeans. It’s lovely.

Sculpting Legging Set £25 Marks and Spencer

So if you watch my weekend vlogs and follow me on instagram you’ll know that I recently joined a gym and have been going to a few mid week classes. Unfortunately I don’t think that my primark ‘camel toe’ gym leggings are quite going to cut it as they have been slipping down my waist the more energetic (and toned – I wish!) the exercises become. So, I could really do with some new gym leggings – these are great as they are quick dry.

Long Crossover Coat £119 Zara

I don’t own a smart black coat so when I was in Zara and tried this on in a Medium I instantly wanted to buy it. I love the gold buttons – I think this makes the coat look more expensive and I love the double breasted design. Very chic and looks great with skinny jeans and boots. I’d love this for Christmas.

Kimberly Purse in Rose Gold £15 Dune via ASOS

I’ve been looking for a small wallet since my last one fell apart. I really like the compartments in this purse, plus it’s rose gold – what’s not to like. I also like small sized wallets as I tend to carry smaller bags at the weekend. This is so pretty!

Food for the mind:

Letters to My Fanny £5.59 Amazon
I used to watched Cherry Healey when she presented thought provoking and often controversial lifestyle documentaries on the BBC. She is smart, quirky and intelligent. For me, she’s a strong woman and I like her.  If the title is anything to go by, her book is going to be a real hoot and I really want to read this.

Lisa Eldridge Face Paint: The Story of Makeup £12.91 Amazon

I love Lisa Eldrige’s style, the way she applies makeup and her general love of makeup as an art and creative form. I’ve wanted this book for absolute ages – I imagine that it’s a page turning book filled with informative historical narrative and beautiful imagery which documents the makeup of previous decades and ages. The beauty geek in me would love this.

The Life Changing Magic of Not Giving a F*&k: How to stop spending time you don’t have doing things you don’t want to do with people you don’t like £9.09 Amazon

Do I really need to say anymore?

#GirlBoss £6.99 Amazon 

I like the title and vibes of this book. It always bugs me when women are described as ‘bossy’ when in fact they just get things done. I think the writer is extremely successful and I too want to be a girl boss and be proud of it.

Techy Present Ideas

San Disk Ultra 64gb Class 10 up to 80Mbps £18.09 Amazon

Now that I’m uploading regularly and doing weekend vlogs, you can never have enough memory cards. You won’t believe that I only have 1 memory card and it’s 32G. I desperately need another to make my vlogging life just a little bit easier.

64GB is perfect as it will fit up to 320 mins of HD Video.

The higher the Mbps the faster it will write to your pc so it will be quicker to download the video footage onto your computer.

Instant Polaroid Camera -Fujifilm Instax Mini 8 Intant Camera £64.95 Amazon

I’ve been wanting a polaroid camera in ages and I know that the refill film can be pricey, but I still want it. I’d use it when friends and family visit and pop the photos on our fridge to create a memory wall. I don’t really print out my photos anymore – they are all stored on my laptop and I really miss the feel and look of actual prints. It’s nice to have a physical photo opposed to something on my laptop.
