I am easily pleased, anything from the Body Shop will cheer me up! Make up would be nice, my mum chooses well... an extra 2 hours sleep a night would be great wink

guilty of keeping the eve lom i had bought her for her birthday, so being a grown up and giving with love through gritted teeth.

Last year I got a mahoosive Clarins box (am still ploughing gamely through it.)That was fab.

I quite fancy the green urban decay glitter eyeliner (in a 70's disco dolly retro ironic kindo of way)

Iwon't get it but will buy my own with any cash kind relatives give me- REN rose shower wash and possibly the body lotion too- or something from Jo Malone.

RumMum Tue 23-Dec-08 09:08:26

I've just been naughty and peeked at a present.. its Elle Macpherson's little gift bag... its got creams and a buff mitt...
can't wait to use it...

SantasNuttySTaff Tue 23-Dec-08 09:28:48

MAC (anything from them will do), Boss Femme and anything from lush

dh has had his orders i just cant wait to see if he actually bothered to get any of the above hmm <<crosses fingers and toes>>

DP came home with the HUgest Lush bag i have ever seen. He is well trained. wink

Some Penhaligon's Ellenisia.

An eye lift.

I'm not holding my breath.

I want Creme de la Mer moisturiser. Apparently it will transform my skin from that of a raddled hard-living 42 year old into that of a 17 year old.

However 60ml currently costs £156 at House of Fraser shock so I will continue to just pine after it.

Pinkjennybellrock Tue 23-Dec-08 09:46:50

Some new mascara. I changed to MF 2000 Calorie in an attempt to show dh how frugal I could be and it's crap.

lunamoon2 Tue 23-Dec-08 09:53:18

Estee Lauder perfume

Any decent black mascara

Any nice smellies tbh

Oh and some gorgeous scented candles I have seen in a local shop!!

SantasNuttySTaff Tue 23-Dec-08 10:05:46

CharleeIPPC envy lol

CharleeInPantoPaperChains Tue 23-Dec-08 10:07:44

Well i asked for'The Art of Bathing' Box but im not sure which one he has got, i don't do peeking!

SantasNuttySTaff Tue 23-Dec-08 10:21:36

ooooohhh that one is fab, good choice.

(i would be happy with any hatbox though they're all gorgeous)

janeite Tue 23-Dec-08 12:39:06

Tistheseason - if you like Philosopy bubble baths, Waitrose have a cinammon scented one for 99p a bottle that I think is nearly as good as the Philosophy ones!

I'd like some Urban Decay primer potion and eyeshadows and anything from Origins.

ilovelovemydog Tue 23-Dec-08 12:44:16

neal's yard lavender bath salts smile

And some simple bath foam because DD used half a bottle shock bathing the duck!

lizandlulu Tue 23-Dec-08 12:47:00
