BREAKFAST: Breakfast muffin


CURRENT WATCH: THE WALKING DEAD which has me obsessed and slightly paranoid...

HIGHLIGHT OF THE DAY: My phone surviving a dunk in a club toilet on the weekend - thank Jesus

On a gloomy day like today, I don't know about you but casting my mind ahead to Christmas time is sometimes all that gets me through.
Not just for a pretty present or two, but for the good food, close company and a little time away from work!
With that in mind, I've recently made up a little (read: humungous) Christmas wishlist,
mostly as a way to procrastinate but also to give my nearest and dearest a helping hand with the super special things I might like this year.
And who knows? It might give you a couple of ideas for yourself or others too...

Adidas Superstars have been on my mind for a long old while now and are a firm blogger favourite, so of course I've been a bit basic and have been making major hints about these guys to anyone and everyone.
As for the Zara goodies - a quality jumper is always top of my Christmas list as they're sure to last year upon year,
whilst the jumpsuit holds host to endless layering opportunities *gahhhh*.

For beauty/scents - Jo Malone comes up trumps every year.
The best way to describe the candle I'd say, is by recalling my cousin's reaction:

'It smells like a rainforest!'

And a damn good one too.
As for the Mimosa and Cardamom cologne - at first I was not a fan of the brand's latest release, however it has come to grow on me massively and the way it smells on the skins is 100 x better than out of the bottle. 

Lastly: jewellery.
Since being gifted the Monica Vinader Riva ring for my birthday,
I have a firm obsession and this turquoise addition would make for a super happy me.
And what would a 20 something female's wishlist be without a touch of Pandora?
When I saw this ring I did a little 'aww' as I believe my girl crush Karlie Kloss has something very similar - so of course she sits near the top of my Christmas picks.

Accompany this lot with an abundance of Lush goodies and crime thriller reads and there you have it, a whole load of goodies for under the tree for yourself or a special (slightly high maintenance) girl...

Happy Christmas wishing!
