Not like I ever have a particularly fascinating one but all that excitement and happiness in the air is definitely contagious.
December as a child always brought with it the anticipation of heading back to my home town, to that circus that is my extended family and all the fun that came with it.
It also signals the beginning of a new year for me as my birthday is on the 8th. Yup, I'm a december baby through and through.
Last year, I didn't ask for much except blog shout outs and some people thought it was weird. Haha
Let's just say I'm a bit too used to not receiving gifts but I've decided to try this birthday wishlist thing again - for the fun of it and because hey! Its another blog post in the bag right?
So here goes : If you love me and want to get me something, let me make it a bit easy for you.
BLOG & LIFESTYLE.
That said, i really want a 50mm Camera Lens and wouldn't mind a new camera and laptop because mine can't record videos and I'm tired of blogging with my phone sha *sucks*
- A tripod to make picture taking easier as well.
Books too : especially novels by african authors, poetry books by Nayirah Waheed, Alex Elle, Warsan shire and co and others (Seeking Love, finding overalls by Leandra Medine, Girl Boss. Etc)
I also won't say no to cake and a good time.
One Word - SHOES!
I've never really had a closet full of shoes but this year, I tried to upgrade a bit and got myself a few pairs but you truly can never have enough shoes. I know I don't.
New shoes makes me happy in a manner only food can - Whether sandals (Helloo Grace Alex Sandals)and ballet flats (which I should get more of because doctor work), brogues/male inspired shoes, kicks, or heels, I'm always like Yasssss!
P.S - I'm a size 42/43 *cries in big feet*
It goes without saying that clothes and accessories ( sunshades, hats, necklaces and rings) will always be a Yes - Yes!
Vane Polish was one of the sponsors of our meet/greet event and I got to finally experience it upfront.
Ever since then, I've been wanting one (or two) of my own and I especially love the pretty pastel colours.
I'm a huge fan of lipsticks especially matte lipsticks. Bright reds, dark purples/vamp lips, kylie's shade of nude (abi is it brown?).
House of Tara matte range is a cheaper alternative to Mac (which I wouldn't mind though. Lol)
I'm a bit of a lastma with this, though I knew of the launch of the sleek skincare lightening and exfoilating range, I only just stumbled on some reviews recently and I'm thinking maybe its what my skin needs. That and sunscreen for sure.
I'm a shade darker now and I'm not sure if I'm still team light skinned or now darkskinned. *sigh*
Perfumes are another thing that I absolutely love.
Oh and of course, money! Hehe
I hope yours is off to a great start?
Any fellow December baby here?
What's on your wishlist this christmas?
