Alright, I know this post should probably have been up ages ago, since it’s less than 2 weeks until Christmas now, but on Monday I had a paper due, and I had an exam today. But I’m all done now! So I have no more excuses… sort of. I’m sure I can think of something if I need to… =P
Anyway! I wanted to share with you some of the stuff on my list. I’m not going to bother sorting the cosmetic stuff from everything else, because this is really just a fun post.
1. The Casual Vacancy by J. K. Rowling
This is honestly probably my number one thing. It’s also the only thing I’ve asked my parents for thus far and my mom is a reader and a Harry Potter fan as well, so I think I’ll finally get it!
If you don’t know (how?), this is the new novel by J. K. Rowling, the author of the Harry Potter series (you’ve at least heard of that right?). It’s an adult fiction novel, not fantasy, more drama-based. I’ve only read about 30 pages so far, so I can’t tell you much more. Which is good, read it yourself! =P
2. A Sigma or Real Techniques brush set (I’d probably settle for Sephora too)
I have some pretty nice ELF Studio line brushes for my face, and some passable ELF regular line eye brushes, but that’s it, and I would love a few really good brushes. I’m pretty alright with my eye brushes, so if I was getting Sigma, I’d probably opt for a face set. Ironically, for the Real Techniques sets, I’d probably choose the eye brush set, because it just looks more useful to me. But yeah, those are expensive! (Pictured is the Mr. Bunny Travel Kit)
3. A England polishes
Any of them really, I kinda just want to try them out. They are the one brand I’ve been waiting to get around to. I’d most like to try out anything holographic, or anything with a cool name. (Lots of their stuff is named after characters from cool books/stories, like King Arthur legends!) Pictured is Lady of the Lake, probably one of my favourites.
4. Skylark Ava and Sophia lipgloss duo
For those who don’t watch them, Skylark is the makeup line by the Fowler sisters, Blair and Elle, who are juicystar07 and on YouTube. I love them, and they are also so adamant that they wanted to make their stuff the best of everything in makeup, that I really want to try these out. Also the colours look fantastic. They are supposed to be really well-pigmented, not sticky, and have a nice applicator. Also, it keeps going on sale for $20…
5. Some Wet’n’Wild Shadow trios or 8-colour palettes
Because I want to try them out and because Emily Eddington of Beauty Broadcast on Youtube loves them, and she is amazing. Also, they’re cheap! (This was one of the best images I found)
6. The Game of Thrones books, or at least the first one.
I’m through watching the first two seasons of the show and completely in love! I’d love to get into the books now too, since I hear the characters are a lot more fleshed out! Daenerys is my favourite, which brings me to my next thing:
7. A Targaryen shirt/pin/something
Daenerys Targaryen is my favourite person on the whole show, I love everything about her, and if I was in that world, I’d want to be related to her! There’s a really nice shirt at HMV right now for only like $20 that I’d really like!
8. A Nerdfighter pin
From the DFTBA store… thing is it’s like 8 bucks plus shipping to Canada… Sigh!
9. The Simarillion (with a matching cover to my copy of The Hobbit and my Lord of the Rings set)
I haven’t read it, and it may take me years, but I will read it. I can do this! >_<
10. Other general stuff I’d love but don’t actively want:
