What do we want for Christmas?

′What do we want for Christmas? I am sure, we all have wishes for Christmas. To spend a valuable time with the family, with your friends, a time away from home in new surroundings and different culture or some might simply want something from the latest from beauty, fashion or lifestyle gifts. The age plays incredible part of ‘what do we want’ and children get so excited about their new toys. One Christmas, when I was young teenager, I received ski boots from my brother. It was a such emotional moment. The moment of tears and joy. Will not forget that moment! But, as we get older, the materialist things become less important and our priority shift to…  1.Health 2. Health and happiness for our family and friends including children and, maybe after then, we think – can we treat ourselves with what latest’ gadget, new fashion item or something simpler from beauty. Who knows what your wish is.


I like to believe that most of us would be more than happy to spend one or two days with the family. Maybe not on the actual day of 25th but at some point during those christmas holidays. Some, want to dissapear for a longer period and enjoy different culture and breathe outside of UK fresh air. And that’s ok. More than ok, actually. Don’t blame them who made that decision, 2016 has been pretty full on with dissapointing events from brexit, terror attacks, trump election, losses of prince and bowie, raising high temperatures… – some might call it the worst year in the history! Most of us might feel a bit sad and dissapointed and even angry with all what happened this year and,… nothing we can change from the past, The only way is we can do is… – forward!

So let’s wish for better year next year and, meantime, here are my top five from beauty, makeup and candles choice. Hope it will give you a little joy throughout the holidays.
