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.

Navy Blue Eye Makeup

I was in the mood for a navy eye makeup look so here is what I was wearing yesterday.

Rouge Bunny Rouge Aqua Primer  

This is a great primer, as it doesn’t clog  pores and doesn’t feel heavy or greasy in summer, plus makes the foundation go on smoothly and last loner.

Clarins BB Skin Perfecting Cream SPF 25

This has to be my favourite “foundation” for this summer. Perfect colour match, feels light on the skin but evens out the skin tone nicely. Full review here.

YSL Terre Saharienne Bronzing Powder  in N° 5 Cinnamon Sand

 BECCA Beach Tint in Raspberry  

Long-lasting tint that blends into the skin and looks like it’s your own blush.
