My Birthday/Christmas Wishlist

Guess what guys? My birthday is in a few weeks. To be honest, I’m not excited about either my birthday OR Christmas this year. I know, I don’t even know who I am anymore. Despite this lack of enthusiasm, I’ve still managed to put together a little list of things I wouldn’t mind getting for either my birthday or Christmas this year. And it is as follows…

Why Not Me? by Mindy Kaling
Lost Ocean by Joanna Basford
NARS Jungle Red Lipstick
MAC Cremeblend Blush in Ladyblush
Dr Dennis Gross Alpha Beta Daily Face Peel
RMS Beauty Living Luminiser
Glasshouse Esperance Candle
Claire V Supreme Foldover Clutch
Rebecca Minkoff Safari Haze Ear Tusk
Celestial Coaster Set (in white)
Giraffe Trinket Dish
Monagram Mug

Current Hair Wish List

Kevin.Murphy Powder Puff Do you suffer from pancake hair? I do. Watch this video by the beautiful Slavisa and see if you’re not instantly sold on this product. I saw a TV ad for the Schwarzkopf version of this which also looks quite promising and for $8.99 it’s definitely the cheaper version. I would be interested to try both out and see how they compare.

Kerastase Resistance Ciment ThermiqueI received about 10 sample packets of this in one of the Australian luxury subscription boxes last year (I can’t remember which one, sorry) and I’ve only just started to try it out. I love this stuff. I use it prior to blow drying my hair and it helps to seal the ends of my hair and make my hair soft & shiny. I will hopefully be purchasing a full sized bottle of this sometime in the future.

O&M Queenie Firm Hold HairsprayFinding a decent hairspray is the bane of my hair styling existence so I’ve got my hopes set on this pretty little number from one of my favourite hair care brands, O&M. I’m really curious to see what this smells like too, as O&M products always smell amazing.

evo Love Touch Shine SprayI am halfway through my Moroccanoil Shimmer Spray but I’ll be looking to try something different when I’m finished the bottle, and at the top of my ‘shine serums to try’ list is this product. I love everything that I’ve ever tried from the evo range, so I have high hopes for this.

Christmas Wishlist

Strangely enough, one of the hardest things for me to do before Christmas is figure out what I want to put on my gift wishlist. I have a massive shopping list on my computer with things that I want to eventually buy for myself, but they’re either completely random and slightly inappropriate to ask for as a Christmas gift (sports bra anyone?) or something that I am planning to buy from the US via a parcel forwarding service. Nevertheless I managed to scrape together a list of things that I wouldn’t mind seeing under the tree on Christmas day…

Santa, if you’re reading this I am a size 9 in the shoes pictured above. Thanks.

August Wishlist

Once again I find myself with very few items on my “I NEED THIS OR I WILL DIE” list this month, but of course I was able to rustle up four items that I would certainly be more than happy to own. These are –

01: MAC Blot Powder – For some reason I have been really curious about this lately. I’ve heard great things about MAC’s blot powder and now I’m curious to try it for myself. 02: Seven Wonders Detangling Moisture Spray – My hair has been a knotted wreck lately, and I don’t know why. I don’t have 1 detangling spray in my repetoire and as I am loving the rest of the Seven Wonders range I figured I might as well give their detangling spray a shot!

03: Biotherm White D-Tox BB Cream – I have been trying this out after being sent a small sample by Adore Beauty and I have to say, it’s amazing. I can’t wait to buy a full sized tube for myself. 04: Ultraceuticals Even Skintone Serum – I ran out of this over the weekend and nearly wept. It’s one of my holy grail skin care items and I have a hard time living without it! Must. Replace. Immediately.

June Wishlist

I’m not sure if it’s temporary insanity or the fact that I’m on Project 10 Pan at the moment (perhaps a bit of both?), but I’ve not really been inspired by much in the way of cosmetics lately. There are a few things still lingering on my wishlist that I’ve not gotten around to purchasing as of yet, but nothing new has popped up that I have the urge to buy ASAP. Having said that, there are four products that are still happily sitting at my “Do Want” list right now, and they are:

01: NARS Lipstick in Carthage – I have lusted after this lipstick ever since seeing it on the gorgeous Emma Stone at the Met Gala Ball earlier this year. It’s bright, it’s pink and I need it in my life. (confession: I ordered this on the weekend, oops.) 02: Serge Lutens Un Bois Vanille Fragrance – This is my all time favourite fragrance, and my must-have scent for Winter so the fact that I am currently without a bottle is almost a crime. (Almost.)

03: MAC Ruby Woo Lipstick – Keeping on trend with my current obsession with bright coloured lipsticks, this cult and must-have red lipstick is definitely one I have my eye on for future purchase. 04: Deborah Lippmann Ruby Red Slippers Nail Polish – Do I really have to explain this one? I don’t think so. Look how pretty it is!
