Dear Santa...

Dear Santa,

I think I have been a really good girl this year and 2016 hasn't been the easiest year for me, all I would like for Christmas is...

A Pony
Fun fact about me: I am horse obsessed. I am 18 and still act like a crazy 5 year-old every time I see a horse *see embarrassing pic below*. I don't know what it is, I have just always been one of those horse mad kids despite ever owning one. I have working with, shared and loaned multiple horses in the past but never had one to call my own. Of course this is a total joke and I don't expect to be receiving a pony this Christmas but it is a tradition for me to ask for one every year.

The Olympus PEN E-PL8 with 14-42mm EZ Lens + 30mm f/1.3 lens
What blogger doesn't want this for Christmas, I mean seriously? I hate the pressure built around being a blogger and having an Olympus PEN, however it's undeniable that for a mirrorless camera this is actually a fantastic camera for the price. After playing around with the camera a few weeks ago at an Olympus PEN event I realised it was as good as I had imagined and I needed it. It is incredibly portable, very easy to adjust to gain a unique tone or effect to your images and is great quality. I have also included the 30mm lens in my list as I personally like to use really up close, detailed, still images. If you aren't convinced that you need it then read 'Devoted to Pink''s blog post about it here. I have decided to link Jessops above simply because if I ever have the money to afford it I will be purchasing it from there. They are the best place I have found where you can pay for the camera monthly which for me is great! Similar to the pony, I do not in any way expect to receive this on Christmas day it's simply because my list of things I would like wouldn't be my own if it didn't include this camera, not to mention I am currently having to take all of my blog photos on my iPhone 7 which isn't really very ideal and, since I am so passionately into photography I would love to get the opportunity to expose what I can do with a proper camera.

BDG Fishermans Jumper - Urban Outfitters
I tried this jumper on the other day in Oxford Street Urban Outfitters and totally fell in love with it! It is so cosy and comfortable I hated leaving the shop without it! I don't own many nice jumpers, only the super slouchy, 5 year old tea stained ones, so when it comes to Winter I totally freeze! I love this jumper because it is incredibly versatile and can be worn with anything, it is also the perfect thickness that you can wear sorting under and over it to keep warm outside without looking like a Robin.

Soft Pilled Grey Scarf - Urban Outfitters
I also saw and tried on this scarf in Urban Outfitters when I went up to London the other day but didn't have the money to purchase it for myself seeing as I was Christmas shopping for other people. It is really expensive for a scarf however it is incredibly fluffy and soft! I am a collector of scarfs pretty much and feel every girl deserves one for Christmas!

Liquid Matte by Huda Beauty - Famous
I already own the shades 'Venus' and 'Spice Girl' from the Huda Beauty Liquid Matte collection and have become obsessed with the formula. It beats everything I have ever tried, and I have tried a lot of liquid lipsticks. Honestly, you have to try them if you are as much of a liquid lipstick connoisseur as I am! My next most wanted shade is 'Famous', although I also want to try 'Bombshell' and 'Icon'!

Textured Shadows Palette - Huda Beauty
I have heard nothing but great things about this palette. I haven't added to my eyeshadow collection in quite some time and I feel this would be the perfect addition! It is expensive however it is a very large palette and I can just imagine the amount of different looks I could create with this palette!

Lux Fan Brush (129) - Zoeva
Every time I go into Selfridges I go on the hunt for this brush, to no avail. I have wanted this brush for ages, at the moment I apply highlight using my cheek brush which isn't really ideal or subtle in any way at all.

Wonderglow - Charlotte Tilbury
I have tried this primer before and it is dreamy... I tried it underneath my Light Wonder foundation and it gave the most beautiful luminous effect I have ever had on my skin. There is a reason why Charlotte Tilbury only invented one primer and that is because they totally nailed it with this one.

Foundation Brush - Charlotte Tilbury
I am in desperate need of a new flat brush having owned my current one for 5 years now... This one was designed to deliver the best results of my holy grail foundation, CT's Light Wonder foundation, and having tested it out already I believe it would be the best one for me!

That is pretty much it for everything that is on my wishlist this year! There are other things I'd love however these I feel are the best I would like to share with you! If your struggling to find things to put on your list then I hope I helped!

Thank you for reading,
