My January Sales Shopping Wishlist!

I don't know about you, but I am usually baaaaad in the Boxing day/January sales. It's not necessarily that I spend a lot of money, it's just that I get a bit like a woman possessed when THERE'S ONLY ONE LEFT, and I end up frantically buying a whole bunch of things that I 'have to have'... that then take up full time residence in my wardrobe.
Well, not this year. This year, I am making a little wishlist. Not that I think for a second I'll buy everything on it, but, it's good to know what you're looking for.

One - River Island, geometric print treggings - full price £22 (would buy these even not in the sale!)

Two - River Island, black renaissance angel print t-shirt - full price £18. I really don't 'need' this, and so I'll try and refrain unless it ends up in the sale! Well... probably.

Three - New Look, burgundy leather-look shoulder long sleeved top - full price £9.99. Probably not a very exciting item but I could do with some long sleeve tops and this would fit in really well with my wardrobe.

Four - H&M, burgundy boucle coat (that's missing and acute on the 'e', but I can't work out how to add it in blogger... *blush*), full price £35. Me waaaaaaaaants it. I so, so love this coat, but.... argh, I don't need it and I probably won't buy it. A girl can dream.

Five - New Look, supersoft bathrobe - already in the sale at £10. Normally, each Christmas, my mum buys me a dressing gown as I freaking live in them (when I'm at home that is, I'm not that bad!) but this year, I was like, nah, my M&S one from last Christmas is still great, I'll do without a new one. Famous last words. I have since spilled every liquid I've been near on it AND cut a small hole in it while wrapping presents. NEED a new dressing gown.

And so that's it for clothes really. I normally end up buying like 12 t-shirts and several jackets, but if anything this year it's long sleeved tops that I can layer that I need. Stay strong Kitty, stay strong.


And then a more beauty based wish list. I should start by saying that I really can't justify buying anything on this really, but it is a 'wish' list, not a shopping list after all.

One - something from Aromatherapy Associates. I'm trying to get into baths right now, and I'm hearing every blogger raving about this stuff. I've never tried any of it.  I think a little sampler kit such as the one pictured (£30 on Birchbox) looks ideal, but it is a bit pricey... will probably hold off unless there's some sort of sale/offer

Two - The Body Shop, Colourglide Lip Shine Colour - full price £10. I bought one of these recently and have fallen in love with it. It's a really moisturising lipstick, that still has impressive colour pay off. Perfect for this time of year.

Three - KMS - Curl Up Mousse. Full price around £15. I love this stuff, but, it is on the pricier side for a mousse if I compare it to my usual from Umberto Gianni that's around £5. Still, I really like this and I'll definitely be keeping my eye out for it being on sale somewhere.

Four - Urban Decay - Naked 2 Palette - Debenhams £37. I know that realistically this probably won't go on sale, but I so want it. I don't own any of the Naked stuff because I've never been that into neutral eyes enough, but now I am and I have decided that this one's for me!

Five - LUSH - Fab Christmas (full price £50). It's become something of a tradition for me to get one of the big gift boxes when they go half price on Boxing Day. This year however, due to work, I won't be near a LUSH during sale time. I know right, crack out the tiny violins. If the Universe does conspire to let me get a box however, this is the one. It's got quite a few products that are either totally new to me or, that I haven't had in ages. *sob* please universe *sob* 

Six - Anna Sui - Secret Wish. The only item I'm really in any way justified to buy! This is my staple fragrance and I'm almost out - sometimes there's great deals on the gift sets after Christmas so I'll totally be on the hunt for a bargain!

 And so that's it, that's my sale shopping wish lists. I will of course be posting to say what I actually got... probably 10 t shirts and 4 Sanctuary box sets from Boots. Anyway, what do you think? Do you make lists to keep yourself on the straight and narrow? Or do you like to let loose and go a little wild?

Thanks for reading,
