Me and Suzume met up for a festive tipple last night and got talking about Christmas gifts, well actually more the gifts we were hoping to find in our stockings this year! Well a girl can dream can’t she!
Below our our Christmas gift wishlists – come on Santa we have been very good girls
AndyLou’s Christmas Gift Wish List
I have had a little crush on the Bobbi Brown Shimmer Brick every since I borrowed Suzume’s on a night out. This palette of five rose coloured tones can either be worn individually as eye shadows, or dusted over your cheeks with a large brush for the ultimate highlight shimmer. It just gives your skin a really healthy glow…and after all this Christmas partying, I think it might be just what I need
Bobbi Brown shimmer brick is avaliable from qvc.co.uk for £29.50
I absolutely love Xen Tan products. They always provide a rich but natural tan to my skin which doesn’t streak or smell awful like most fake tanners! Hurrah! So can you imagine my excitement when I read about Xen-Tan Dark Lotion Absolute Luxe. It contains more DHA active tanning agents than ever before and has proven to last longer than any other self tanners!
Xen-Tan Dark Lotion Absolute Luxe from lookfantastic.co.uk at £34.95
I hadn’t heard of Alex Monroe’s jewellery line until I was lucky enough to receive her gold feather pendant as a gift earlier this year…and it was love at first sight. Waving the flag for Britian, Alex use nature to inspire his intricately beautiful jewellery, which has been featured in many a magazine. How beautiful is this peacock feather? I want, I want…. I want
Alex Monroe Big Peacock Feather Necklace is avaliable from JohnLewis.co.uk for £156
As much as I love wearing a classy pair of heels you really cant beat some comfy – yet utterly stylish – boots! The ultimate ‘wear with anything’ item, that doesn’t hurt the ball of your feet, give you cold toes or fall off when you have had a few too many vinos!
These Urban Outfitters Fur Trim Boots are £38
Just look at it! I don’t even need to explain why I must have this handbag!
The Mulberry Alexa handbag is £750 from mywardrobe.com
Suzume’s Christmas Gift Wish List
I love sunglasses. I already have too many pairs, but I always want more and these really caught my eye… I will soon be moving to warmer climes, so will definitely need another pair!
The Marc Jacobs Tortoiseshell Cats Eye sunglasses cost £100 and you can buy them online at Debenhams
Earlier on this year InStyle magazine gave away a free tube of L’Occitane Fleur Cherie hand cream and ever since then I’ve been hooked! It just has such a gorgeous floral fragrance – Meditteranean Orange blossom is the main fragrance. Luscious!
The L’Occitane Fleur Cherie Shower Gel and Body Lotion gift set costs £27.75 and you can buy it online from QVC
Ever since I spotted AndyLou’s gorgeous House of Harlow necklace, I’ve been hankering after owning some of Nicole’s jewellery myself! I love big jewellery and these fabulous embossed Aztec design earrings really fit the bill.
The House of Harlow 1960 14ct Gold Plated Medallion Earrings cost £46 and you can buy them online at asos.com
In Jan I am a bridesmaid for my friend at a beach wedding on Waiheke Island in New Zealand, so I made a twitter plea the other day for fake tan recommendations, seeing as I don’t want to blind everyone with my paler than pale english winter skin! A few people recommended St. Tropez so a St. Tropez Bronzing set has made it onto my list (I’m a bit nervous however as I am the crappest at using fake tan!)
The St. Tropez Bronzing Mousse Set costs £48.50 (usually £60.50) and you can buy it online at lookfantastic.com
I was uber-excited when I saw the Models Own Christmas nail polish sets, there are 5 sets available and my favourite (and the one I only have one of the polishes already) is the 2010 Collection. This has got 5 of Models Own’s best-sellers from this year. Totally fabulous pressie for anyone you know who likes nail polish!
The Models Own Christmas nail polish sets cost £20 and you can buy them online at modelsownit.com
So hopefully… a few of the right people will see this list and me and AndyLou will be lucky enough to get some lovely suprises on Christmas morning! I wouldn’t hold my breath for the Mulberry though AndyLou!! x
