The Christmas Gifting Guide – 2018

A few weeks ago I asked you, babes, if you would be interested in a 2018 Christmas Wishlist and the replies were crazy. You wanted Fashion, Beauty and a little something for New Mums. Well, here are all the things that are currently on my wishlist that you might want on yours too. You’re welcome. Also, none of this is sponsored just  –  Love Pascale xx

Something For The Fashion Gals:

It’s hard to pick one, and I may be totally biased as I co-designed the range but apart from wanting everything from our latest collection to stack along my ears, I need to start with these Kite Charm Hoops. They will go with my original Northern Star Hoops like a boss. Note to self: Get at least one more piercing done in my ears so I can stack more.

So this is the next designer piece I have my eye on. After seeing them make the rounds on my Insta feed they have been on my mind. The Fendi Cowboy Boot. Honestly. It speaks to my soul. I plan to will wear them everywhere. Even to bed. K bye.

A good summer brim from Lack Of Color, like where can you go wrong? I want everything they make and this hat is no exception. This one is next on my purchase list. Is there a theme going here? IDK.

Even though it is summer, I promise you will wear this baby all year round. Pair it with a tee in summer and knits in winter. I have been wearing Nami’s vintage Levi’s jacket for YYEEEARRRS now and I think it is time to give it back and get my own. You will not regret this gift.

This dress and any other wrap dress from Faithfull The Brand. Note! newly pregnant ladies, go up one size in dresses like these to wear throughout your pregnancy and then tie it tighter once the baby is here. #winning

I have no reason to put this on here other than I am obsessed with it and I want it NOW. Also, the back of the dress is just as perfect as the front #hellosummer

One thing I love gifting and getting gifted is fashion coffee table books. Stacked amongst your trinkets, they should A) look pretty on the table and B) be inspiring to flick through. A couple on my wish list.

Something For The Beauty Gals:

Now it’s no surprise that all the beauty brands are in full swing of Christmas, which is great because all the holiday gifting collections are out which makes it super easy to give or, hint to your boyfriend for yourself. Mecca is doing some great ones with different brands shop online here as well as my fave MAC Cosmetics too. The only thing is you can’t wait too long cause it sells out so fast. This is your warning.

Shiny Pretty Things Sweet Assortment – Retro Matte Lipsticks $200


 

This palette by Bobbi Brown is also literally daytime highlighter ‘glow goals’.  It is a little bit more of a subtle highlight for everyday wear than the MAC Hyper Real Glow Palette you see us use. Plus the packaging is a little more fun and festive than your norm. Obsessed.

Highlight And Glow Highlighter Duo Palette – $180


 

This is the miracle cream Nami and I always bang on about. Smells like an absolute herbal dream too, say goodbye to dry skin. It will have you SHOOK how good it is – well at least that is what happened to me lol.

Weleda Skin Food 75mL $23 | Weleda Skin Food $14


 

The Renew + has been on my wishlist for a while since I have seen all the benefits it has had first hand on Nami. Through my pregnancy, I have been taking the Naked Marine Collagen and as soon as this baby comes I will switch to the Renew + as it has the pure marine collagen from the Naked + extra vitamins which are suited to improve your skin and gut health.

The reviews on this brand is no joke, I thought it was a hype until I actually tried it for myself. Like guys, they have bottled  ‘the glow’. It’s not cheap by any means but if you are looking to improve your skin and gut health I would suggest giving them a try.

The Christmas scents from Ecoya are out, currently on sale and smell like Christmas bottled into a candle. This might be one of those get one for yourself and one for someone else too.

Something For The Mums:

Literally, anything from this online store is on my wishlist. I have spent way to much money then I care to admit with them but the quality and the designs I know will last forever and for more than one kid. All pieces are hand dyed and designed by an Australian mum herself, Jordan. They can be a little hard to buy from as their smaller sizes sell out so super quick but the best thing to do is keep up with their Instagram and when they drop a pre-order take notice, one must not delay.

If you haven’t yet bought a pram and are thinking of which one to buy, I am obsessed with my Edwards and Co Oscar G3. To be honest, I didn’t think this kind of stuff would excite me but holy shit it is chic and practical. Additional’s I got were the cot and the capsule + car seat base as I wanted it all so ….. yolo. The capsule and car seat base clicks out of the pram and into the car so it doubles as your childs’ car seat while they still fit in the capsule. Better living everybody.

When I tested it out I couldn’t believe how affordable it was compared to other brands out there. It is also perfect for walking as the tyres are air inflated and best of all the company owned by an NZ family – The Edwards duh!

I originally set my mind on a Bugaboo as that’s all I saw everywhere but once I started visiting stores to look at them they are just too wanky for me. Did you know the frame alone with nothing on it was $1,300, like, cya. Not about that life.

Edwards And Co – Oscar G3 Stroller $795 – With Extras: $1,373 altogether.


 

These next items on the wishlist will just make you feel like you have your shit together, even if you don’t. As long as your underwear is in check then you are half way there to mastering the day girlfriend. The size guide on their website is super helpful for you to pick the size you will need during pregnancy and after baby/breastfeeding which SAVED MY LIFE as I am not close to a lonely store.

I also swear by Bonds which I get from Farmers and their original triangle soft cup bra’s which are so easy to wear too. Shop here.


 

This was recently recommended to me which I am totally going to get. Time flies by so fast and having something to refer back to will be everything. I am also a super forgetful person most of the time with 101 things on so it will also be my reminder when people ask me about milestones.

This last gift is little something to pick you up and help you find new wisdom in amongst the chaos. Plus it’s recommended by Pip Edwards so, what she says goes ok?

Flick us a message if any of these land under the tree for you as we would love to know what you think.

Also just a reminder to give back where you can to those less fortunate to receive gifts these holidays. We will be doing a drop of makeup and clothing to Dress For Success and we encourage you to do the same if you can.

I have linked the donation regions in New Zealand here in case you are curious babe.
