Long time no speak lovely readers! I've finally surfaced from under a pile of university work and job applications to write a quick blog post. I'm in my final year of university and have been really struggling to find a balance between essay writing and blogging... as you can tell from the total lack of posts! But I managed to break away from a computer last week for a mooch around the shops, as all the Christmas gifts have found their way onto the shelves already! I've seen a few of these posts surface already, and I love reading them. So here is a few things I would love to find under the tree, or that I'll hopefully purchase in the post-xmas sales <3

Make-up is a good shout for most of us girls, right? Clinique have created the Whole Lotta Chubby Gift Set, which includes 5 mini chubby lip crayons & a little bag to match. At only £20 from Debhenams it's not too cheeky to ask someone in your family or your partner to treat you if they're stuck for ideas! Benefit Blushes are always a little luxury to get at Christmas I think! They're £23.50, so a bit expensive to buy during the year, but a great little treat to try at this time of year. Real Tecniques Nic's Picks are something I've been dying to try since they came out. They're on offer at Superdrug for £20 over the next month... this would be a great little hint to drop on your closest, as 5 brushes for that price is an absolute bargain!
Christmas wouldn't be Christmas in our household without Yankee Candles and Next Pjamas, and they're great gifts for women of all ages. So if you're stuck on buying something for the mother-in-law, or the awkward teen sister, you literally can't go wrong with these two things. Don't forget all the Xmas scented candles go 50% off after the big day, so good to stock up!
The last 3 bits are things I would personally love to try. I've been after a portable iPhone charger for the longest time and after researching lots I think this is the one for me. Amazon are selling the Anker Astro Portable Power Bank for £16.99 with free UK delivery at the moment, instead of close to £50. If you're anything like me and constantly glued to your phone / ipad this will undoubtedly come in handy! Jimmy Choo FLASH perfume is a new favorite of mine, but having never bought it I have cheekily asked my parents for it for Xmas. Perfume is another little luxury I would rarely treat myself to during the rest of the year, so this time of the year is perfect for trying something new. Lastly, I've been dying for a new Cath Kidston bag for the longest time, so if I'm lucky enough I might be able to treat myself in the new year sales!
Hope you've enjoyed the post.
