Christmas Wish List: Ultimate/Realistic (and An Appeal For Compassion)

Hello everyone!

I apologise if this is too soon, but it's all very exciting isn't it! On this list are items that are incredibly unrealistic gifts, but also ones that you might be able to ask for Christmas yourself.

I was a very late fan of the perfume. If I am honest I still don't 100% understand how/why I and everyone else can spend over £40 on scented liquid. But here we are, and I am in love with Dot, I also have Lola, but I really think dot is my new favourite, I'm not a big fan of honey or the other Marc Jacobs perfume and sprays.
What is called 'Hair Chalk' can be expensive, but it isn't especially for hair, it is normally artist chalk. Which you can most definitely buy from Pound Shops and IKEA for a £1. What a great stocking filler!

I nearly cried when I saw how cute the home-ware range at H&M was! I'm upset that I have 3 H&M stores where I live and not one of them has a home section anymore! The items are inexpensive and beautiful. Especially the pillow cases that start from £3.
The pink Instax camera is so lovely, the cute bags you can get for it are also adorable. It may be a little pricey, but may be worth being a main Christmas present from somebody who loves you!

I think it's time a lot of people embraced their geeky side. You can be a geek about anything, and what better time than Christmas to become a child again and get overly excited about things that take your fancy.
Get cosy and cuddly with novelty items or become a collector of something, old books, comics or photo frames. Try out something you've never thought about owning before! This will be the only 2013 Christmas you'll ever have, live a little!

I hope you can stick around for this next bit... it won't take long...


Lately I've been finding it very morally difficult to be writing about fashion, beauty and art. And not focusing on the things that matter. It's a very tricky place to be. But I think to myself that we do deserve to be distracted from the horrors of this world for a time, but not all together separated from it. I cannot express to you how important COMPASSION is! The simple saying of 'put yourself into their shoes' says it all. 
Christmas time always highlights the happiness and joyful time with loved ones, but that very fact makes starving children and war torn countries stick out like a sore malnourished thumb.

So I really am going to ask you to just pop over to the UNICEF website, and have a look. If you can do a one off or monthly donation as an incredible ultimate gift I would be very thankful.
And don't be ashamed to say that you've donated. It's not boastful! You don't have to say how much you've donated, what's important is that you are expressing that not only are you capable of beautiful compassion but also the wisdom to act on that compassion and make a difference, no matter how small.

So if you have felt the incredible and natural need to donate to UNICEF or another charity of your choice just leave a little smiley face in the comments, so everyone can see what a fine and incredible example of a compassionate human being you really are.

Thank you
