My birthday is on Saturday!!!! I love a birthday, whether it’s mine or someone else’s I just always think they should be celebrated and – as tradition seems to dictate here at Peppermint Dolly – on the run up, I love to share with you my “in-my-dreams birthday wish list” and this year is no different, so here it is, the 2017 edition!
1.) I was gifted a sample of this and as far as my skin is concerned it’s an absolute dream and I would love to get my hands on a full sized bottle
2.) I mean does it, or does it not look like liquid gold?!?! Well I’ve had my eye on this renewal oil for quite some time, jury is out on how good it is as I’ve never tried it, but it’s on my list and seeing as I pretty much adore everything these fantastic humans make, I can’t imagine feeling much different about this one!
3.) I didn’t know that you’re meant to “set” your make up. I have struggled and given-out for YEARS about how my make up doesn’t seem to last all that long and others wear loads more than I do and yet theirs stays immaculate…well it would appear I was missing a step! I also have it on good authority that this is THE ONE to buy if you’re buying one, so stay tuned for how I get on (when I get one!!)
4.) Creme de la Mer featured here again, because I need a new powder brush and this one just looks sensational.
5.) Nars concealers, I’ve heard such good things about their product – amazing coverage, flawless finish, no creases – I’m intrigued!!
6.) I colour my hair and this masque by Redken has been positively heralded as a saviour- so it’s a must try for me as my hair is a little dry these days and could do with some TLC
7.) My obsession continues, it smells amazing and it never lasts long enough (mainly because you’re meant to use a cap full and I pretty much tip the whole thing over myself the first day I get a new bottle because I’m overexcited about having a new bottle in the first place!)
8.) Again, I was gift a sample of this cream and I’m just about to finish it and I know I will miss using it day-to-day, it’s rich without being heavy, melts into your skin in seconds and leaves an incredibly dewy finish which I love, I use this at night and have been waking up the next day with super hydrated, glowy skin!
9.) I need it because – well just look at it!
10.) See point 9
11.) ..see point 9
12.) For big birthday’s, I love getting something that “stands the test of time” and jewellery is the perfect way to do that! How beautiful are these diamond and rose gold studs? Just yum – that’s right, I said yum!
13.) & 14.) Perfume. My day-to-day perfume has been this one for more years than I care to admit and I’ve never received more questions and compliments on anything else that I own, as much as I do on what perfume I’m wearing. So I’m not about to make any changes on that front, however! I am on the hunt for an “Evenings Out” scent, something a little more luxurious – I’m drawn to Chanel No.5 because of my Mom and well, it’s Chanel No.5! But I’m also really loving Miss Dior which I had a sniff of recently and it’s beautiful, a really gorgeous scent, so stay tuned!
15.) I DIE OVER THESE, they are absolutely GORGEOUS and I usually never go for slingbacks, but I would steam-roller over that rule for a pair of these beauties
16.) …..did you see point 9?
17.) One of the best illuminators out there right now – and how stunning is the compact?! I want.
So there you have it, the full round up, have any of these tickled your fancy too? Let me know in the comments below and if you have a birthday soon too – Happy Birthday!!
