Lists upon lists claiming to have the perfect Christmas gift for him/her/them are sure to be popping up on your feed a lot more this time of year. I am guilty of doing that myself (if you haven't read my From Steal To Splurge: Christmas Gifts for Her at Every Budget post, see here). But instead of putting out there yet another gifts idea post for someone else (I honestly cannot read another one without rolling my eyes), I thought I'd share what we, beauty & fashion bloggers most likely really want this Christmas.
1. More Make-Up
Let's get the obvious out of the way shall we? The Gwen Stefani Urban Decay palette is incredibly popular in the blogging community and despite containing many neutral shades we most likely already have in our stash, I am sure we have all thought of purchasing it anyway. That sensible voice in our head is telling us that we don't need it whilst the beauty blogger is screaming "gimme gimme"! Not to mention the Vice 4, the entire Charlotte Tilburty make-up collection as well as all of the gift sets make-up brands are doing this Christmas. MUST.RESIST. TEMPTATION.
2. More Things To Wear
When it comes to fashion my wishlist never ends. I must own about 14 pairs of boots, yet I am always drawn to a new pair that I simply "must" have. Not to mention, trying to keep up with all the amazing trends out there is not only expensive but also very space inefficient. For a minute let's imagine a world of endless supply of clothes, shoes, handbags and all sorts of accessories very neatly organised in a beautiful walk-in closet. Note to self: must get rich fast.
Don't get me wrong, I love how helpful and willing my fiancé is when photographing me for the fashion part of Pam Scalfi. But more so than often, he has to work during weekends and I really struggle to get any outfit posts done without his help. It would be absolutely amazing to be able to afford having my very own personal photographer and be able to shoot anywhere, any time. A girl can dream, can't she?
4. Longer Daylight Hours
THIS! Snapping blog photos during the winter is absolutely the worst! Working full time means leaving the house before the sun is even up and getting home at dawn which results in a) dealing with poorly lit blog photos or b) taking photos in bulk during the weekend only to later realise they all look crap anyway. Lose lose situation really.
5. To Eat Like There's No Tomorrow...
...and not put on any weight this Christmas; this is by far the first on my list. I envy those who are able to eat whatever they want and still have an amazing figure, unlike me who by simply looking at food adverts (yes I'm looking at you M&S) manages to puts on a few too many pounds. With so much food everywhere on Christmas Eve and Day and continuous going out to eat, this will be very challenging and let's face it, almost impossible.. Hello holiday weight gain, goodbye size 10 jeans!
What do you want this Christmas beauties? Let me know below!
Happy Friday and have a nice weekend ahead!
