Hello my frosted fairies! Christmas is only a few weeks away, (25 days to be precise) but hey who’s counting? I’m such an eager winter bunny and I have already assembled and decorated my mini, white Christmas tree with a Nutcracker, Land of the Sweets theme! Adorned with macaron and sugar-plum fairy ornaments. In keeping with other festivities; the Grinch may have been watched twice, Michael Bublé’s Christmas album and the Nutcracker Suite have been on repeat (well…since September), I tried gingerbread green tea for the first time last week (you must try it, it epitomises Christmas in a mug) and I can’t wait to put my fawn printed duvet set on my bed and finally use LUSH’s Magic Wand Bubble Bar which smells of candy floss, marzipan and sherbet ♡🍥
Anyway, with the madness of Black Friday and Cyber Monday, I thought it was about time I scoured through a few of my favourite online stores and curated my own Christmas wish list for 2017! This post also acts as a gift guide for any pink snowflake princess! Filled with soft pink, fluffy items, bows and other magical, sparkling delights which could be purchased as main present’s or stocking fillers! ♡
- Kate Spade|Cameron Street Jewelled Hope Handbag
I have been lusting after a Kate Spade handbag for quite a few years now but I could never find my perfect design. When I saw this bag my heart melted and I felt butterflies. I think if I could metamorphose into a bag it would be this one. It has a perfectly subtle bow detailing at the front and a jewelled feature which adds something fascinating to an otherwise plain pink evening bag. What I also adore about the bag is its size. I’m not a huge fan of large shopper bags as I never carry much with me aside from my phone, purse and lipstick so this design is ideal for me!
2. Viktor & Rolf |‘Flowerbomb’ 30ml Perfume
This perfume has been on my wish list for what feels like forever. I immediately became enamoured with its design when I saw Freddymylove talk about it. Through her, I discovered Viktor and Rolf and learnt how flawlessly it suits my style and taste. The key notes of the fragrance are Jasmine, Orange Blossom, Patchouli; its warm, spiced undertones make it perfect for the winter season.
3. Dior| Milky Tint in no 026, ‘Milky Pearl’
When I saw this product on Catherine.mw’s Instagram I was instantly intrigued by it. As a lover of the Dior Addict Lip Glow (I swear by it as an everyday essential), I knew that any of Dior’s lip products were bound to have my heart wrapped up in satin bows. From packaging to texture, it’s a princess’s dream. ‘Milky Pearl’ is the shade I’ve been lusting after as it reminds me of strawberry milkshakes and pink fluffy marshmallows! What’s not to love?
4. Kate Spade|Bow Scarf in ‘Rose Dew’
I can’t get enough of Kate Spade’s AW/18 Collection. It’s as if it was designed for me. Anyway, this scarf is definitely a luxury purchase but I couldn’t leave it out of this post. I have been after a new scarf that matches my array of pink coats (the collection is still growing…) and I had immediate heart eyes when I saw this muffler on the Kate Spade website.
5. Jack Wills|Paris Faux Fur Headband in Pink
Faux Fur headbands are a staple for the colder months 🐰 they look so chic paired with a velvet dress, a soft pink faux fur jacket and some glittery tights. I can imagine this outfit worn on a frosty evening spent ice skating and strolling around the cosy, Christmas markets with a warm Nutella crepe in hand.
6. Ted Baker|CHERYLN Christmas Phrases Socks in Light Pink
I don’t think a Christmas gift guide would be complete without a cute pair of socks. Pieces like this are often overlooked but I personally think there’s nothing better than new socks, especially when they’re baby pink!
7. Oliver Bonas|Pink Velvet Cosmetic Bag
Every girl needs a cosmetics bag and I am in desperate need of a new one. My floral wash bag from Cath Kidston has been in my possession for over 3 years now and is looking a bit worse for wear. When I saw this sweet pink, velvet makeup bag I couldn’t get it out of my mind!
8. Philosophy|Amazing Grace, Ballet Rose Shower Gel
Philosophy always release the most darling ranges. Last Christmas I was to grateful to receive their limited edition ‘Amazing Grace: Nutcracker’ perfume which was adorned with a pink tulle tutu on the lid, making it the most magical gift! I have been infatuated by the Amazing Grace scent ever since and it reminds me of last December so much. I think this shower gel would work wonderfully as a layering scent. After a soothing soak in the bath and once you are towel dried, you could spritz some of the matching perfume over top for a majestic, winter ballerina presence!
9. Ted Baker|Bowsi Bow Embellished Jumper in Pale Pink
Anyone who knows me well will be aware of my love for bows. I can’t get over this beautifully embellished jumper; with its wool and cashmere blend it looks ideal for any winter evening walks and the pearl, gem detail adds an extra Christmas sparkle!
10. Beauty and the Beast|Rose Bath Petals
It doesn’t matter what season it is, I will always opt for a bath. For me, they are something restorative and essential for my mental well-being. I personally love using a few special products whilst I’m in the bath to make sure I’m taking care of myself. These ‘Rose Bath Petals’ would go wonderfully well alongside a few drops of a calming bath oil like the ‘Red Roses’ oil from Jo Malone (which I’m dying to try) and you could also light your favourite wintry candle to help you unwind even more.
11. Ted Baker|HANNELA Crystal Heart Pendant in Lilac
This necklace is so ethereal and reminds me of something from a fairytale; a love-heart locket that Cinderella or Aurora would wear… ♡
12. BLOCH|Mini Pointe Shoe Key Chain
Ballet is something so important to me. I love the idea of having a little pointe shoe that I can carry with me everywhere as a gentle reminder of the dancer within me. ♡
Here are a few snaps of my new, mini white Christmas tree which I assembled and decorated a few days ago.
