MY WINTER WISH LIST | Fashion, Skincare & Beauty bits I'm lusting after...

Disclaimer: None of the below photos are my own, and are subject to copyright to the link they're attached.

I turn 19 this December, and for my first year at University, being broke has made me appreciate luxuries such as these so much more this year - I can't wait to hit the boxing day sales! These are some of the things I've been craving for this Winter - I'm thinking of a shopping spree to treat myself for my birthday heheh... There's a bit of clothing, makeup and skincare in here so I hope there's something in here for all of you to drool over!

Morphe Pro Makeup Palettes:

Morphe have a great array of eyeshadow palettes - I particularly love their new additions that launched in Summer. Having never tried anything from this brand I've been looking at investing in one their big eyeshadow palettes. The warm colours in this one are perfect for creating the warm-toned looks that I love (it's also on sale at the moment for only £15.21!).

They also have a contour palette that looks amazing and a brow powder palette that would be perfect if you're building a freelancing kit on a slight budget.

Too Faced Natural Mattes Palette:

Sticking with beauty, I've also been eyeing up this palette ever since I saw it in a KathleenLights haul.

Another warm-toned eyeshadow palette that my inner makeup geek is convincing me I need - it is all matte though, slightly different.

At £26, it's on the slightly pricier side, but from my past experiences Too Faced shadows have an amazing buttery formula and are always very nicely pigmented... This may be top of the list...

Liz Earle Cleanse and Polish Hot Cloth Cleanser: (£15.50)

Moving on to skincare, this is definitely going to in my basket in the boxing day sales. Because it's available in Boots, I'm sure I could grab it on offer at some point as they normally do some great deals around Christmas.

The Liz Earle Cleanse and Polish has been a holy grail staple in so many people's skincare routines, and everyone I know raving about it has finally convinced me that I need to try it too. Have you ever used it?

LUSH Face Mask 'Catastrophe Cosmetic':

Pampering products like this are amazing as Christmas and birthday presents, especially in the Winter. My dry skin could do with a nice face mask like this working wonders to keep it moisturiser and feeling fresh through the holidays.

Vanity Planet's 'Spin for perfect Skin':

At a nice £20, this is a great alternative to the Clarisonic - as a tester - if you're unsure on the benefits or whether you'll even like it or not. It comes with three different heads, which definitely appeals to me as the exfoliating head would come handy just as much as the softer bristles used for cleansing.

(This would also make a nice luxury present for a mum or sister!)

Wildflower by Drew Barrymore and #GirlBoss by Sophia Amoruso:


Both these books look like such nice easy reads for the holidays. I personally love Drew Barrymore, and also find Sophia Amoruso's story to inspiring and interesting. A good autobiography is a nice present at Christmas too, so many choices for all the friends and family.

A couple of fashion items just to finish off, I love the Zara Office City bag and the recent knee-high boot trend. I love these boots from ASOS - I think the grey colour makes them unique but still very wearble. I might also save up for a nice sparkly sequin dress for the Christmas and New Year's parties, like this Topshop dress here.

What are you hoping Santa brings?
