Birthday Wishlist

I will be celebrating my 26th birthday on the 15th of July and I thought that putting a little wishlist together is a good idea :) I am not fussy with gifts, but I will make sure to let my husband know about this post, haha :) I don't really need anymore makeup or skincare, but I always have something on my wishlist. Always!

On top of my wishlist, we have some gorgeous Hourglass products. The Opaque Rouge Liquid Lipstick is something I would love to try and if I had to pick one shade, I would go for Muse. Another product from Hourglass, I am dying to try is the Ambient Lightning Powder. Diffused Light seems like the perfect choice for me, but I think that all of them would look lovely.

I am also lusting after the Kevyn Aucoin Sensual Skin Enhancer. I need it in my life asap! I want my makeup to look flawless and this little pot might do the trick.

Believe it or not, the only thing I've tried from Origins is their Super Spot Remover! I think that it is time to change it and I will definitely pick up some of their face masks, if I get a gift card for my birthday.  I love the sound of the Drink Up Intensive Overnight Mask and the Clear Improvement Mask. I wonder if they live up to the hype.

The last beauty related item is the Vera Wang Lovestruck Floral Rush EDP. I have the original Lovestruck with burgundy flowers and I love it :) The packaging is very pretty and it would make a lovely gift.

Another brand I haven't tried before is Diptyque. The new "blogger's favourite" in the candle department. I wouldn't pay the full price for a Diptyque candle and I wouldn't expect any of my relatives to fork out £45.00 for one, but... the sale price seems very reasonable and I would love to try the Limited Edition Perdigone Spiced Plum scent.

As a home fragrance addict, I always have a couple of reed diffusers in my house. I adore Neom's Contentment candle, but I would love to try the reed diffuser as well. It is my favourite scent at the moment and it makes me really happy :)

I love pampering, but I've never had a proper facial! I am super shy, so dealing with people in real life makes me very, very anxious. I should definitely step out of my comfort zone and treat myself to a spa experience or a pamper day. My anxiety always gets in the way, but I should probably start dealing with it and enjoy life, especially on my birthday.

I am also dying to book a weekend getaway in a fancy hotel and relax with my husband! We never get a break, so my birthday would be a good excuse to spend some quality time together. I found a couple of great deals online and I am tempted to book something special right now :)  

An unusual idea... but something I would love to experience is a Hot Air Balloon Flight. It must be amazing and definitely worth the price tag! I am scared of flying, but just like I said before - I want to start stepping out of my comfort zone and have more fun :)
