something on a sunday: an insight into my christmas list

Hello everyone!
I know, I know, I haven't managed to blog in the week again...I blame too much uni work. I'm in my final year and finding it pretty tough, I have so much reading to do!
Anyway I'm going to write some posts up for this week so the blog will definately take a step forward.
Today I'm sharing an insight into my Christmas list, hopefully you will find it interesting and even get some ideas. 

CANON 600D: So before you think I'm a spoilt brat, I've asked for money towards a DSLR camera for a joint Christmas and 21st birthday present. I've always loved photography, being slightly obsessed with taking pictures on my phone and I love looking at lovely photos too. I want to make photography a hobby of mine and I feel like I could take a step up from my current 'point and shoot' camera and take a leap to get a starter DSLR. This Canon seems the best for me, it's a reasonable price for what it offers and it's a popular choice amongst bloggers so I know a bit about what I'm getting. It is classed as a beginner's DSLR so I won't be too confused. It's going to take a lot of time to get used to this camera and to learn the settings, but I can't wait to get into it!

LUSH POPCORN LIP SCRUB: You might not believe this but I have never had a LUSH product! I'm not sure why, but I think it has something to do with the overpowering smell that hits you everytime you even walk passed the store! After reading blogs and watching haul videos (which is normally my downfall) I have decided that I would love to try some LUSH products and I'm particularly interested in the lip scrubs as I can't stand having dry lips. I'm also an avid lipstick wearer so it would be lovely to have a lovely soft base. I particularly like the look of the Popcorn one but they have lots of other flavours too; I say flavours because you don't have to wash these off, you can lick them off! I'm not 100% sure how I feel about that because you're essentially eating your dry skin, eww. I love the look of this product and I'm also keen on trying some bath bombs, particularly Butterball.

JUICY COUTURE, VIVA LA JUICY EDP: I have simple reasons behind this pick because this is my favourite perfume. Although last Christmas was the first time I got it, I absolutely love it. It's a fruity scent which is my favourite kind and I love the bottle (which is a must for me). I may have a try of some other perfumes soon just to check I still want the same one. I do quite like the scent of Marc Jacobs DOT but it's a flowery scent so I'm undecided...but it does have a lush bottle!

BLOG INC. BOOK: I really like the idea of this book, it's very informative about all aspects of blogging and I love the idea of having a book to look through on Christmas day (geek). I think it will give me some inspiration and will be nice to have some written tips and advice. I first saw this in Urban Outfitters in the book section and had a flick through it, but I found it on Amazon for slightly cheaper, which is always a bonus!

TOPSHOP FLECK OVERSIZED TOP: I actually already have one of these tops in black but I really fancy another colour, possibly the grey or white. I love oversized tops/jumpers which are easy to throw on over leggings and shirts to create layers. I love wrapping up in winter and these tops look great with the fitted arms and with a statement necklace. I think they are a pretty reasonable price for Topshop and I think they could be classed as a thin jumper. They do have some fairly similar tops in Primark so keep an eye out for them too.

BUMBLE AND BUMBLE TEXTURE CREME: Again I don't own any products by Bumble and Bumble, mainly because I find them quite pricey, but they've started stocking them in Boots and they have smaller bottles now, making some of the products more affordable for me. The smaller products are about half the price but probably about half the size of the bigger ones, which means it's almost like a tester. The products that interest me the most are the Texture Creme and the Surf Spray because I'm always keen on adding texture and volume to my hair.

I hope you've enjoyed the little insight into my Christmas list. I would say these are the main things on my list. Other than that I've got earrings, DVDs and other little items. I always have to make a big list because my boyfriend and his family are always asking me for MORE ideas because things sell out so much around Christmas!

I'd love to hear what you've asked for for Christmas or am I a little premature?

Thanks for reading as usual. Next Sunday I'm planning on sharing a little piece about my reasons for wearing makeup and my thoughts on it so it'll be a bit different to normal but I hope you like it!
