Firstly, the Lancome 'All I Want This Christmas' luxury advent calender.
It's just like a regular advent calender, but instead of cheap chocolate each window hides a little make up or skincare item in miniature. It retails for £70 (from Selfridges- though it's already sold out)
How much fun would a make up advent calender be. I'm actually contemplating making up my own! :)
Second on my list is something I've been thinking about for a while: the Clarisonic. I'm sure it would be the most amazing thing for my skin, and I've heard SO many good reviews on it- I'm pretty sure that everyone who has one raves about it!
However, at £155 (from the clarisonic UK website) or £115/£120 (depending on colour) for the Mia (sold by clarisonic on amazon but not their website...) I don't think I can really justify it at the moment. I know there are quite a few cheaper alternatives, but I've heard mixed reviews on these. What are your thoughts? Any recommendations? Or should I just save my pennies for a Clarisonic Mia?
There are rather a lot of Chrismas nail polish releases that I really would love to get my hands on, but in this case not only are they expensive, they are also pretty hard to find in England. Sometimes I think I'm glad I can't get cheap OPI and China Glaze here though, can you imagine how much nail polish I'd have?

China Glaze have also just released a large Christmas collection, and I'm rather in love with Snow Globe...

Snow Globe actually reminds me quite a lot of the new glitter I bought recently, I'll have to experiment with it and see if I can create some sort of Snow Globe look-a-like :)
So what items are you currently lusting after?
