The L n L Christmas wish list!

Ho ho ho!

Can you believe that it is a month until the big jolly man comes to visit? Have you done any Christmas shopping yet? Mr LnL and I have knocked over quite a bit of it so far and i think we will have some very happy friends and family on Christmas morning. With all this shopping underway thoughts turn to… hmmm what do i want for Christmas? In classic LnL fashion my wishlist consists of lots of things that look and smell great for me and my home.  So in the spirit of sharing i thought i would put together a lust list of sorts, things that i would love to receive for Christmas! Consider this your guide for buying for the woman you love, like or would like to get to know better!

I hope you see a few things on here that inspire you in your gift giving or at the very least add a few of these onto your own personal list.

I have provided links to all the items so you can get cracking and purchase online if you wish!


ps. can someone please show this to my husband?

Atlanta Travel Set 

Who doesn’t love a bit of travel over the Christmas holidays? This 3 piece set from Typo/Cotton On contains everything you need to keep organised. The pack contains a passport wallet, document folio and baggage tag. Im loving the shade mint at the moment and so this set has a gorgeous summery feel.

Life is Beautiful wall print

We all need reminding sometimes! This gorgeous framed print from Target would look great near my vanity. I love the simple elegance of the script and minimal colouring.


Kelly Thompson Mascara Girl Basic Pouch


This red headed babe is anything but basic as she applies her mascara like a pro. This lovely cosmetics purse from David Jones has a wonderfully high quality print on it and is a generous size for all those essential on-the-go items.

Glasshouse Ltd Ed Mini Candle Collection

I love Glasshouse candles but the price often prohibits me from buying up. I love that in this set you get the chance to try all three of the limited edition Christmas scents without having to buy a full size.

Swarovski Stardust bracelet

The only problem with this beautiful bracelet from Swarovski is choosing which colour to buy. I love the rose gold accents on this one but the white is so so sparkly and Christmas appropriate.. and then there is the magenta… sigh.

Kikki – K Live Bright mug

IM obsessed with foiled prints at the moment so when i saw this printed mug from Kikki K i knew it had to be mine. The mug is generously proportioned for a big hit of tea throughout the day. I love how simple but glam the print is.

The Body Shop Fruity Hand Cream Trio

I recently tried the strawberry Hand Cream from The Body Shop and loved it! So i have made it my mission to try all the fruity scented varieties. This value pack contains three Fruity scented Hand Creams which are highly emolient, nourishing but not sticky or oily.

Opi Gwen Stefani Holiday Collection

Photo taken from
OK, so I’m going to be a little ( a lot) greedy with this one, the problem is i just can’t choose which shades i want.. so i want all of them! This collection boasts one of the loveliest purples I’ve ever seen as well as a beautiful gold and some gorgeous glitters. Lets also not forget the most luxe of gold flecked top coat “Don’t Speak”

Chi Chi Glamorous Palette Duo – Naturals &Bronzes

I have quite a few palettes here but i am constantly surprised and impressed by Chi Chi cosmetics and decided to take the plunge and buy myself a duo of the Glamorous eye palettes. I consider these my Christmas gift to myself

Philosophy Field of Flowers – Peony Shower Gel


If you have never seen a Peony then you have never seen the prettiest flower in the world. With a scent seemingly from heaven the Peony is the amped up cousin of the Rose. This Shower Gel from Philosophy is one of the loveliest on the market. Not only is the packaging pretty but the scent is divine.

Roberto Cavalli Acqua

I am currently sitting here tying out this post while holding a perfume card to my nose. This perfume is to die for. It has strong notes of jasmine (which is probably why i like it) and is not sickly sweet but deep, rich and perfect for the more mature of us. The bottle is a beautiful shade of blue which reminds me of the aqua waters of the Mediterranean. I visited this beautiful bottle time and time again when wandering around the fragrance section of David Jones last weekend.

Bottega Veneta Knot 

Another high end fragrance, this time from legendary leather goods company Bottega Veneta. This amazingly luxe looking bottle is gilded to perfection and topped off with a metallic gold knot.  With notes of orange blossoms, peonies (again!!) and lime this is another perfume which is deep, luxurious and rich.. This is perfect for the sophisticated lady in your life.

Mimco Vertigo Tote

A girl can dream can’t she? After what feels like a lifetime of choosing handbags in all sorts of fashion shades i feel like its time to go back to a classic and timeless black bag. This one from Mimco is stunning. With wings that can be expanded with the opening of side zippers this tote will fit in all your essentials and more!
