Christmas Wishlist 2014

As it is now officially December, I can begin to mention the C word (not that one you naughty elf!) without people moaning at me. Christmas is but 3 and a bit weeks away and I cannot wait! I love Christmas, it's my favourite holiday, because all of my family and friends get to celebrate it meaning that everyone gets to feel as special as each other (except for my little sister whose birthday is on Christmas day, so she gets to be extra special).

As I finished my Christmas shopping at the weekend, I am finally feeling like I can start to think about what I would like to receive myself from Santa. Due to myself and Rich saving like mad for our wedding next year, I haven't spent much on myself at all for a few months, so this year coming up with ideas has been really easy!

So, clockwise from top left we have the Lady V London Tea Dress in Black Tea Cups & Cupcakes print. This dress is gorgeous, such a quirky print, but as it has a black base colour I know I would get a lot of wear out of it. Next up is a Yankee Candle, I have never owned one of these, and as I am obsessed with scented candles this year, it is inevitable that one of these iconic candles has wound up on my list. After receiving some ESPA goodies at the Leeds May Meet earlier this year, I have thoroughly been converted to expensive skincare. However my samples have nearly all ran out now, and at £22 for a full size cleanser, it isn't something I can justify buying for myself whilst we are trying to save for the wedding.

Christmas isn't Christmas without me eating an entire Chocolate Orange in one sitting, so I would love one of those in my stocking. One year Rich told his Dad that I liked orange chocolate, and that year I swear I received every type of orange flavoured chocolate from him as my present. It was awesome. Two years ago Rich got me a pair of Doc Martens with a fluffy inner, and they have barely left my feet since, they are the ones I'm wearing in this post if you're wondering. As my faithful pair are getting so battered, I think I am due another pair of DMs and the same style but in the gorgeous burgundy colour are the ones that have caught my eye. 

Whilst at the BBC Good Food Cakes and Bakes Show I got introduced to Joe & Sephs popcorn in Mince Pie flavour. Yes, yes, a million times yes. This stuff is fantastic and I would do my happy dance if I found some under my tree this year. If I'm not lucky enough to get some of this, pretty much any popcorn would suffice. I think popcorn has been my food of 2014, I've certainly eaten enough of it. Next up on my wishlist is The Sims 3 Seasons. I have recently rediscovered my love of the Sims, and I am loving the Sims 3. The seasons expansion pack was one of my favourites in the Sims 2, so I would love to own it for the Sims 3 and see what improvements they have made. The additions of seasons adds so much more realism to the game, and I like my sims realistic!

Last, but not least I have asked for some new fluffy boot slippers from my Mum. My slippers are falling apart so badly it's embarrassing. The rented house that Rich and I are in at the moment has very cold floors downstairs, particularly in the kitchen, so slippers are necessary if you like to feel your toes. As my feet are quite big (size 7/8) it can be a struggle to find slippers that fit. One size fits all, does definitely not fit all. These ones from Next come in a range of sizes, and are grey, which is my favourite colour at the moment.

So that's my Christmas wishlist for you all to nosy at. If you've done a Christmas wishlist post, link me below, so I can take a look and probably make my wishlist grow a fair bit! See you on Friday!

  1. I feel your pain with the, erm, less dainty feet! I'm a 9, which basically means boy's shoes or bust. Terry's Chocolate Oranges are pretty much the spirit of Christmas :) Not that it stops me eating them all year round...
    I've done two Christmas gift guide posts so far this year. One for girls and one for boys:

    1. New Look do some good shoes in a size 9, my Mum has size 9 feet and always manages to get the best bargains from there in the sales.
      I love your Christmas gift guides, in particular the Captain America memory stick. Although I'm a girl I really want one of those! x

  2. Woo yes so happy for Christmas! I am obsessed with chocolate orange, I have been munching my way through one over the past few days and finished it tonight! I have some epic slipper socks which have barely been off my feet recently! x
