Christmas Wishlist 2016

Christmas Wishlist 2016

Another year, another Christmas wishlist.

As many of you may know, Christmastime is one of my Favourite Times of the Year, so I’m always excited about the prospect of gift-buying and gift-getting and food-consuming. Although we all know it’s mostly about the mulled wine. Oh yeah.

(They have a special type of mulled wine at the Christmas market here in Luxembourg – which kicks off this week – with a little hovering thing over the mug of mulled wine which they LIGHT ON FIRE, and my Christmas-market-bestie Tiara is visiting in a few days and I cannot WAIT to consume this with her once again.)

So, apart from mulled wine money, this is my wishlist for this year:

  1. HP Sprocket – I saw this on a YouTube ad, and it’s enchanted me. A little printer to print phone pictures?! Perfect.
  2. Book vouchers/bookdepository.com vouchers – I am very much in a book-buying swoop at the moment. All the books.
  3. A trip to a second-hand bookshop – This year I’ve rekindled my love for second-hand bookshops. I love them, and I love spending time in them and leafing through the beautiful books.
  4. Flight tickets to Malta – Being in Malta is still one of my favourite things ever. I cherish the time so, so much. Maybe that’s the best thing about living in Luxembourg. :P
  5. Flight tickets to almost anywhere, for that matter – Travelling is firmly towards the top of my list of priorities at the moment. I’m so open to new adventures.
  6. A good handbag (I’m always in need of one) – And I don’t even know where to start. Where does one find a good handbag? Argh.
  7. Skater dresses (always) – Still my daily uniform for any occasion. I love wearing dresses. Give me more.

Have a wonderful Christmastime.

25th Birthday Wishlist

Birthday Wishlist 2014

On my birthday this year (my 25th!), I’m going to be stuck in a musty building doing one half (9 hours) of the notarial warrant exam. It’s going to be gruelling and it’s going to be awful. And then two days later I’ll have another 9 hour exam session. Ugh. Therefore: this year’s birthday will be a weekend affair, following the two exam sessions. So I’m planning a lot of fun and frolicking to be had.

(I’m also popping over for a quick trip to Rome with my bestie the following week – so exciting!)

As has been a relative tradition on this blog, I’m going to show you a few things which are on my birthday wishlist this year.

In the beauty/make-up corner on the top left, I’m coveting Dior’s Crème de Rose lip balm, MAC’s Plumful lipstick, Tany Burr’s Aurora lip gloss, the Benefit POREfessional primer, LUSH’s Big shampoo and Retread conditioner, and the Le Blanc de Chanel sheer illuminating base.

The top-right corner contains a few home/miscellaneous items: beautiful candles, my most-wanted perfume of the moment, a picnic basket, and a book lamp(!).

Finally, obviously, a few books from my ever-lengthening book wishlist: Miss Peregrine’s Home for Peculiar Children by Ransom RiggsLegend by Marie Lu, and The Goldfinch by Donna Tartt. (PS: the BookDepository have a crazy sale today! So excited. Totally using my studying-procrastinating time to refresh ever half an hour…)
