9 things i’d love for christmas

:: by Lizzie


Now, don’t think me too spoilt or greedy, some of these are rather pie in the sky price-wise, but these 9 things are all items that would make me very very happy should I come to open them up on Christmas morning. Some I’d consider buying myself come the New Year as they’re pieces I feel I really must have in my collection and others (Rose Gold Headphones and Sheepskin Mittens!) I’ll be keeping my beady eyes on online in case they get massively reduced in January sales.


I’ve been doing a fair amount of reading (and YouTube video watching) on capsule wardrobes and minimal living and I’ve found that since then, I’ve really not been tempted to shop for the sake of it. I’m being much more considered really thinking about how to get the most out of what I already have. I’ve been focusing on only purchasing items that I feel are missing from my wardrobe and/or home, that I’d really see the benefit in having and get a lot of use and pleasure from. And surely the fewer things you buy, the more money you have to spend, no?! I’m not sure that Father Christmas would agree, but just in case he’s reading…
