My Birthday Wish List

I am not someone who is obsessed with [my] Birthday, and tell everyone about it. But since friends and family keep asking me what I want, it made sense to make a list, and share some of the things with you, too. I have chosen to post the items that may be of interest to you.  Maybe it will inspire you to get these things for yourself, or maybe you are just curious about what I want. I know I am always curious to see all those wish lists.

These Two

New Phone. I mainly use my phone for calling or sending messages, and  I use my iPad mini for everything else on the go. This is why I like phones like  Nokia and Blackberry qwerty. My F&F find it to be a really weird thing. But it is not gonna change, I would like a new phone like that, too.

I also need a new pair of red Dr Martens. I have been wearing Doc’s shoes for as long, as I remember. My black pair is still going strong but the red ones need a replacement.

Something To Read

I am an avid reader, so my list could be ridiculously long but I have chosen to post  only the relevant [for the website] items.  And I still don’t have any of these books yet.

Gentlewoman Magazine (from Amazon and Amazon UK). I haven’t read magazines in ages but this one seems like the one I would like.

Speaking of the gentlewomen, I would like the The New Garconne: How to Be a Modern Gentlewoman book   ( Amazon and Amazon UK) very much.

Round to Ours Setting the Mood and Cooking the Food Menus for Every Gathering (Amazon and Amazon UK), an amazing cook book, and tips on how to throw a great party.

My Personal Holiday Wish List

Since I am posting all those Holiday Gift Guides, it seemed like a cool idea to share my  own wish list. And this is not only beauty but pretty much everything that I want.  I would actually really want to know what is on top of your wish list this year, so do share.

Books

What I Saw: Reports from Berlin, 1920-1933 by Joseph Roth,  £6 from Amazon UK and $16.95 from Amazon. I read some of his reports about Vienna, and loved them. So the ones about Berlin are on my wish list, too.

Appetites: A Cookbook by Anthony Bourdain, £31.50 from Amazon UK and $22.50 from Amazon. I am a big fan of Mr. Bourdain, and says it all. Also, I love cooking.

Pretty Iconic: A Personal Look at the Beauty Products that Changed the World by Sali Hughes, £12.50 from Amazon UK and $14 from Amazon. I don’t really read that many beauty related websites/books these days, but I did read Sali’s first book, and would like this one, too.

Vichy Aqualia Thermal Serum, £22.50 from Feel Unique and Escentual. For

Want It: Kerastase Chronologiste Range

Being a die-hard Kerastase fan, it is obvious that I want their new-ish Chronologiste range. I previously used their  Densifique shampoo, and am using the Cristalliste for thin hair (review coming later) now.

The Revitalising shampoo from the range is actually described as “the masterpiece of Kérastase shampoos.”, and I am sure that it is absolutely amazing.

Hair Care and Styling Products Wish List: Viviscal, Kerastase, Mason Pearson and MOP

I never liked my hair, there are so many things I don’t like about it that I won’t even bother mentioning them all. At least I am happy that it is straight and  I am also happy with my natural hair colour;  I have had all the shades  and styles in the past. But I have stopped dying it when I was about 22-23, and I am happy with my [natural] dark cool-toned brunette look.

As I have already mentioned in several previous posts, I am currently trying to figure out what products I still need to add to my routine. I have also used up several that I have been loving, so am looking for a replacement. Or should I just re-purchase the old favourites?

Here are my picks:

Hair Wish List Viviscal, Kerastase, Mason Pearson and MOPViviscal Maximum Strength Programme for Women – Feel Unique now have 20% off now, so I have already purchased it. And from Amazon.

I am seeing it everywhere now. Apparently it is supposed to be  a miracle-in-a-pill, and a lot of people swear by it. I did try Philip Kingsley “hair vitamins” in the past, by the way. So think about giving these a go. What if the results will be really great? I guess, we will see.

I have quite a few products on my  beauty wish list, and I am constantly adding new things to my Pinterest board but today I’ve decided to share the things that are on top of my list.
