Christmas Wish List!

christmas-wish-list   I’ve written a few gift guides now but I thought that I would collate some of the things that I’m hoping to see under the Christmas tree in a wish list. The first is an amazing scent from Jo Malone. Every time I go into the shop I find another fragrance I love, they just have so many scents and they all layer so well too. My favourites at the moment are Wood Sage and Sea Salt, Mimosa and Cardamon, Peony and Blush Suede , Blue Agave and Cacao and Velvet Rose and Oud. So yummy smelling! I love Kate Spade and I love the collections that she brings out. The most recent is this gorgeous bunny rabbit set and this phone case with bunny ears with the quote “I’m all ears”. is the cutest. It’s relatively inexpensive and would be fab for a stocking filler. Next up is this amazing smart watch from Guess. This phone does so much. I’m really into running and fitness at the moment and it has a fitness tracker, you can also connect your phone so you can get your emails and texts on your watch which comes in very handy if your at work and also on a run. It also does so much more too. The watch itself looks amazing too. This Karen Millen jacket is so cool. The shade of red is beautiful and is a military design not overly so it’s so stylish. It’s warm and would look great with most of the clothes in my wardrobe for this time of year. Health and Fitness is on my mind quite a lot of the time and so the Apple watch is a perfect addition. It works in much the same way as the Guess watch as it’s great for tracking your steps, health and fitness, keeps your messages and emails are at your finger tips, and it has much more besides. It also looks amazing too. You can’t have too much make up and this Dolce Vita palette from Charlotte Tilbury is one that I’ve had my eye on for quite some time. The brown and glitter colours of the palette are quite something. They’re easy to wear, they blend delicately and the main glitter shade can be packed on to the eye lid for an ultra festive look. Perfect! I saw this pretty and delicate Rose Gold Organic ring from Accessorise recently in store. It reminds me of the Monika Vinader River ring . It’s so stylish and sits beautifully on the hand with a twinkle. It also is great for stacking rings too, a trend that is becoming bigger in the past few years. Finally a Neom candle, a brand that Kate, Duchess of Cambridge herself has. This specific candle is Pine, Myrrh and Lime and smells devine and so do all of the candles especially the Christmas collection. One of my other favourite candles is Maroccan Blush Rose, Lime and Black Pepper. It actually smells of Turkish Delight, a smell that is so yummy. What is on your Christmas Wish List? Let me now in the comments below. Happy Shopping!

Screen Shot 2016-08-14 at 21.44.50 One of my lovely friends that I work with brought in these beautiful purple/pink hydrangeas. she had them in a vase on her desk as the plant that they came from had collapsed from the weight of the flowers on it. They made me smile every time I went into her office. Screen Shot 2016-08-14 at 21.45.04 This picture is a little throw back to last weekend as I had so many pictures that I took. We had so much fun eating chips in tomato sauce and drinking a good old brew at West Mersea. As it grew later into the evening it was clear that the tide was going out as extra islands were appearing so we decided to walk out on one and take a picture. We made extra sure that we kept an eye on what the tide was doing though so we didn’t get caught out and trapped. Screen Shot 2016-08-14 at 21.45.16 I love this little church in the town centre. There’s a little market inside and a beautiful little cafe too. There’s always a bargain to be found here. Screen Shot 2016-08-14 at 21.45.32 On Saturday evening we popped down to the Courthouse Sports bar. It actually was court rooms and the main decoration and plinths had been eft in the room for authenticity. They had several tv’s around the room too so we could watch the cricket, and two football matches. Screen Shot 2016-08-14 at 21.45.45   Earlier in the day, I’d popped into H and M to have a look at holiday wear and saw this beaut of a playsuit. It’s lightweight and so pretty. I love the colour and the pattern.   Screen Shot 2016-08-14 at 21.45.59 I’m still searching for a dress for a family wedding that is rapidly approaching. Eek, only 3 more weeks to go. On my travels I came across this cute Michael Kors bag that tops the rucksack trend. What a beaut! Screen Shot 2016-08-14 at 21.46.12 I went into Karen Millen to check the last of the sales and came across this little beaut of a dress that just happened to be in my size. It even has pockets. Still deciding but it’s between this one and another. Let me know what you think in the comments below. Happy Sunday!
