“It’s the most wonderful time of time of the year!”
The countdown to Christmas begins…
This week consisted of digging out the Christmas decorations, making a start on the advent calendar and most importantly planning those Christmas party outfits!
But what’s the point in putting up your Christmas tree if you do not know what’s going under it? …The way to a girls’ heart is shoes, handbags or makeup! So here’s my guide to the top five must haves under the tree this year – & ladies, why not drop a subtle hint to the boyfriend and share the blog link? (I will be)…
THE NAKED PALLET
There’s nothing more satisfying than having a killer eye pallet in your makeup bag, and for me your eye makeup can change your whole look really easily. I love testing out different styles with various shades and one of my personal favourites is the Naked Pallette by Urban Decay. The tones are to die for, and its surprisingly affordable! Brimming with 12 gold-hued eyeshadow shades and matte, satin, shimmer and sparkle textures, you can layer these up and team with a piece from the Powder Collection. The perfect stocking filler to give you that extra Christmas sparkle!
So I’m planning a trip to New York for New Year, which means one thing – a new winter coat is due. And for this I’m all about practicality and warmth! I love a thick bomber and for me right now its all about the Canada Goose range – Chilliwack Bomber Jacket being my favourite. Originally designed for Canadian pilots these coats have a gorg detachable fur hood, and are super cosy to wear. 100% need!Bottom of Form
Of course every tree needs a little clutch hiding away underneath! This one might be a big ask as it’s quite pricey – but your worth it 😉 The LV Chain Louise MM has an adjustable gourmette chain that can be worn across body or removed and carried in the hand. I love its simple but statement style and bold signature clasp, so glam! And guaranteed to make you the envy of your friends on NYE.
THE CRISTAL JUMPSUIT
I already have this one! But girls, you all need a Cristal jumpsuit in your life this Christmas, the silky finish and soft drape falls beautifully against the skin and is perfect for any christmas party. It isn’t too revealing but is sure to turn some heads teamed with a killer clutch and open toe heels… maybe you could even class this one as a little gift from ‘me to me’, because your worth it
When it comes to shoes, things may get a little complicated! There are so many to choose from this season. Don’t get me wrong I love to explore new labels and styles but a classic designer heel wins every time! Louboutin, Valentino, Guiseppe… the list goes on. But which ones do I want under my tree this year?
The new season Louboutin range is GORG! – with the Iriza Glittex/Lame Sirene being my favourite. Team these with your champagne Cristal jumpsuit or blaze midi from my AW16 powder collection and you’re ready to bring in the New Year in style!
LOUBOUTIN LIP COLOUR
I’m in love with the Christian Louboutin beauty range, from the lipsticks to the lip lacquers and liners. Silky Satin Lip Colour ‘Me Nude’ is beaut! The warm chestnut tone with satin finish works with any pastel outfit and not only does it look amazing on but the colour provides moisturising, medium-to-full coverage for up to four hours without fading or bleeding! Definitely worth the money AND the packaging looks beautiful in its gold-tone case.
So if you have been ummmming and arhhhing about what you really want for Christmas, hopefully this will give you a little bit of inspiration. Which one is your favourite?
