My Christmas/Birthday Wishlist 2017

It's time for my annual birthday/Christmas wishlist and the two being so close together it means I can just do one chunky wishlist! I've fought with myself over the idea of writing this post because I know my family come and have a look at this and I kinda feel bad writing it knowing that. But I hate to break my blogging tradition of writing this post so it's up a little later than I'd normally post it on purpose! Anyway, onto what's on my wishlist this year and why.

Dear Santa...

Thomas Sabo Charms - Rabbit, Turtle, Snowflake

I'm really into anything cosy and relaxing this year. I haven't got huge things on my wishlist because there's nothing big that I really really want this year. In fact, a lot of the things I do want this year are things that reflect my personality, could belong in my future home or are to replace things that are worn down or that I don't have anymore.

Right now my interests are anything to do with cacti, Harry Potter and bobble hats (for some reason) are an obsession. I'm a bit chatty so I'm always quite obvious with what I like and I make it known without meaning to. I don't know why, but I really go all out when I like something! Recently I've noticed a boom in the cactus trend. Everything seems covered in cacti and it's fulfilling my thing for them. A bunch of cacti mugs and that cosy blanket please!

The other day I also noticed that my beauty case was falling apart. It was a gift that I've had for years and after getting a cut from the broken metal, I decided it's probably time for a new one. I'd love a big one like the one I have now. Oh, and some new brushes to replace some tatty old ones that I could put in the case too would be nice! There's not a lot of beauty I'm after this year and to be honest, I don't need it so I'm all good for that right now.

Other things that could do with replacing are some boots and coats. I need a couple of coats and I'd love a new fur coat for the weekend and maybe a parka for my work days. I'm also really into the boots out this year and I'd like a couple of interesting pairs to jazz up my wardrobe. Over the knees and embroidered boots are my favourite right now. I love these over-the-knee black ones at the moment but I'm also liking some grey ones that are about too.

Being a teacher, with me, you can't go wrong with some stationery. I think I'm good for notebooks but I'm always in need of a pen. It doesn't have to be one of those super expensive parker pens but I like these ones from Paperchase. I'm always buying the £3 mechanical ones. They write so nicely and last for ages!

I'm craving a bath at the moment so Lush gift sets are definitely on my wishlist. I plan on having a few baths this Christmas time and I'd love to try some of the new bath bombs Lush have out at the moment. Their boxes are amazing value for money and I love giving them as gifts too.

So yeah.... that's my wishlist for this year! I don't think it's too crazy and I think it represents me quite well. Saving for a house means I'm looking to get some things for my future home so any homeware is definitely on my wishlists too. What's on your Christmas wishlist this year?

  1. Aw lovely post, I love the aesthetic of everything on your wish list! I like receiving anything from Lush for Christmas, and I know a few of the other things I’m receiving already such a hot chocolate set and stationery. Happy Birthday and Christmas! :-) Xx
