My Christmas Wishlist

Sunday, November 20, 2016

In our house Christmas is about spending time with family, not about the presents, but I'm not going to pretend there's nothing on my wishlist this year! I spend the majority of my money on bills and things for Zach, so I don't get to treat myself quite as often as I'd like to. With both my birthday and Christmas coming up in December I've been thinking about the things I'd like, and I thought I would share those in case they inspire you when it comes to buying gifts for your loved ones this year:

The White Company Winter candle - I absolutely love candles, but I really can't justify buying the expensive ones for myself. I have been dreaming about owning this candle for so long, and yes I know how sad that is! I just love winter fragrances, and this one would be so perfect to burn on cold and frosty nights.

Present over Perfect - I for one am constantly feeling busy, overwhelmed and under pressure to be the absolute best I can be at all times, and it is so exhausting. This book sounds like the antidote I am after, and it has some had really great reviews. (I also love that the shoes that are on the front cover are also in this wishlist!)

Fujifilm Instax camera - I have had my eye on one of these for a while now, and although it is on my wishlist I am hoping that it will go on sale on Black Friday so I can sneakily treat myself. I would love to take this on holidays to capture some of our family adventures, and then put them together in a big scrapbook for Zach.

Charlotte Tilbury Glastonberry lipstick - I swear this is the lipstick of dreams! I am a big lover of plum lips in the colder months, and this one looks absolutely gorgeous. A little darker than what I usually go for, this one would require a bit of bravery, but it is just so beautiful!

Persiana recipe book - I absolutely love food from the Middle East, so this recipe book is right up my street, especially as I love attempting new recipes and encouraging Zach to try different tastes and textures wherever possible.

White Converse - I actually can't believe that I don't already own a pair of these, but I would so love some. What is really great is that they come in half sizes, as my post baby feet are half a size bigger than the used to be (you can imagine how fun that is for me). I've actually bought a pair for Jono, and I would love if we all had a pair and could wear matching shoes. Again, I am totally aware of how sad that is!

Chloe perfume - The original, classic Chloe has been my favourite perfume for years, but I haven't had a bottle in so long. I don't usually splash out on fragrance for myself, so I would love to receive one for Christmas, maybe I will hint to my mother ;)

What is on your Christmas Wishlist?
