Do you get excited or annoyed Christmas seems to start earlier and earlier each year? I do like decorated windows and illuminations during the darkest season of the year (and in Finland it's DARK), but I don't need a reminder of buying hysteria. However, as my birthday is at the end of November, I took a little pleasure to put together a wish list of beauty items that I have in my radar. I don't expect to purchase or receive anything, but I this might give you little tips how to treat yourself or beauty enthusiasts near you. All these items you can buy online with international delivery from my favorite sites. As always, the links are for your convenience and do not contain ads.

Byredo Mojave Ghost Perfume 50ml / 95€
I adore this perfume, it's been on my wish list since I first smelled it last February. The scent reminds me of pears, which I find lovely. Unfortunately we don't have Byredo in Finland, so I've been putting off buying this and worn my less expensive Jo Malone instead. Gypsy Water is my 2nd favorite from Byredo.
Omorovicza Moor Mud Set 50ml, 30ml, 15ml / 53.9€
I've heard lots of great things about Omorovicza, a luxury skincare brand from Budapest. I adore cleansing balms and moor mud skincare. As the regular cleansing balm is the same price as the set, I find it great value to get introduced to the brand.
Diptyque Baies Candle 190g / 44€
Like many beauty enthusiasts - I enjoy scented candles, but I have yet to try Diptyque! To my knowledge Baies is one of the best sellers and the scent was very pleasant when I smelled it in store. The label is simply beautiful and looks beautiful in any home.
MV organics 70ml / 39.85€
IF you're buying a skincare gift I think cleansers are always a safe bet. I missed on Cult Beauty's 2 for price of 1 sale on this product and it's been tempting me ever since. I think a cream cleanser would suit perfectly for my at home spa nights, massaging and removing with a hot cloth.
I've actually owned this brush, but it has been lost since last June when I was doing a voluntary work at an event. Could be someone snatched it, could just be the lost and found services wouldn't find a brush. Either way I'm devastated I lost this perfectly angled contour brush and I'm hoping to get a new on as soon as possible.
Surratt's lash curlers have lately been popping on YouTube, rumoured to be even better than Shu Uemura's world famous lash curlers. As I love everything I've tried from Surratt, I can't wait to get my hands on these curlers. Surratt's new eyeshadows and blushes also made my heart skip a beat, but unfortunately I couldn't find the novelty items for sale in Europe.
OUAI Haircare Volume Kit 300ml, 250ml, 130g / 50€
I wanted to add a hair item, but to be honest, I'm a newbie when it comes to hair products. I have a couple of favorites that have stuck with me for years, but lately I've felt more open minded about styling and taking care of my hair. Ouai has been quite hyped up lately and you get a lot of product for the price. Would try them! Update: The websites might not ship hairsprays abroad, such a shame!
Vintner's Daughter Serum 30ml / 168.5€
Last but not least THE serum people in the beauty community have been buzzing about this year. Packed with highly potent, highest quality organic ingredients, this serum is supposed to be all-arounder perfection for your skin concerns. With many positive reviews, I'm more than intrigued. It's up there in the price, but I'd love to give it a go.
..No color make up?! Most of the Holiday collections just haven't caught my eye and I've been eyeing the potential Spring releases instead. I haven't found Surratt novelties in EU and otherwise I'd only want to try the Marc Jacobs Airblushes (I like Lush & Libido or Flesh & Fantasy) or get more SUQQU blushes, but they're either only available at Sephora or/and out of stock.
