Christmas Wishin'

The Miniaturist - Penguin jumper - dotty dressing gown
Christmas Eve candle - white Converse - house charm
With only a few weeks until Christmas, I felt like the time has come to post a wish list. As far as I'm aware, Joe hasn't started his Christmas shopping yet - which is bad news for me! It took me forever to create this wish list, as I'd already planned to buy myself some treats in the Boxing Day sales. However, I've been after a dressing gown for age and this Joules one is just lovely. It looks like it would be really soft and snuggly, and to be honest I don't own enough polka dots. Next on my list was the rather general 'books'. I've already been book shopping recently, and picked up four new books under the guise of some of them being on my uni reading list - well, one was, but it was the second in a trilogy, so I had to get the whole set! I'd love to own this beautiful edition of The Miniaturist, the cover would look fabulous on my bookshelf. 

Christmas isn't the same without a novelty jumper, and it seems like penguins are in vogue this year. I love the mint colour, as it makes a nice change from the usual reds and greens. This one is from New Look, but they have so many different designs, I'm sure you'll find one you love. Another Christmas essential is a festive Yankee Candle! This year, I'd love to receive Christmas Eve - maybe as our traditional early present? That way, I could open it on Christmas Eve and enjoy the scent on the intended day. 

Would you believe me if I said I'd never owned a pair of Converse trainers? It's true, I was always more of a Vans kind of girl. Anyhow, I really fancy a white pair, and love how these are completely white. I think Converse have had some sort of re-brand recently, and that's why they don't have the blue and red stripes along the bottom. I could be wrong on that, though. Last up on my list is this lovely little house charm from Pandora. I've wanted it since July, to celebrate us moving away from our awful last place. Of course, if Joe (or anyone else reading) would prefer to get me a different charm, I have a wish list as long as my arm on the pandora website haha! 

Do you like any of my picks? What have you asked for this Christmas?
