Holiday Wish List: Day 18

River Island is usually a go-to for me. I think this is a great dress to start the new year in – it will hide a multitude of regretful Christmas sins (yes, I’m on my 3rd box of mince pies already). This style is easy to throw-on and will prepare me for when the weather does eventually turn – I am going to track it and wait to see if it drops in boxing day sales.


I have been looking for a long lasting matte lipstick for ages and my friend told me about Burberry’s range – I can sit with her through an entire three course meal and her lippy doesn’t budge – plus, the colour is perfect for everyday and isn’t too harsh against my ‘in need of a holiday’ complexion.


I am a sucker for a comfortable heel, I have given up trying to walk in stilettos and with my work Christmas party and New Year’s Eve around the corner, these Asos heels would prevent any unsightly accidents but the heel and gold trim is edgy enough to nod at fashion.
