Christmas Wish List

Confession - This is probably the lamest, most practical Christmas list ever.  Maybe even borderline depressing.  But I always enjoy seeing what other people are asking for, and I think it's a helpful shopping tool if a blogger really reminds you of one of your friends.  Something I've really focused on this year is experiences versus material items.  My apartment is small, so my belongings can end up as clutter.  I've become much more intentional about my purchases and what takes up space in my home and my life, and I think this list reflects that.


Bath robe •  Whenever I travel, I love to take advantage of the cozy bathrobes that are hiding out in the hotel closet.  They're so soft and luxurious, but not something I would typically buy for myself.  I am forever freezing, so this is the perfect gift.

Steamer •  Last year, my 15 year old brother asked for a steamer for Christmas, and I made so much fun of him.  This year, I'm thinking he had the right idea, and asking for one as well.  I do not love ironing, and I also love that I can use this on my slip dresses and other items I couldn't imagine taking an iron to.

Vitality Lip Flush •  I found this on a major sale (regularly $20, paired with a full size gloss for $24), so I went ahead and bought it for myself.  I love this lip color because it's one of those magic products that adapts to your skin tone.  So if you have a lipstick lover in your life but have no idea where to start, you really can't go wrong here!

Ugg Slippers •  I've got to have some slippers to go with my bath robe!  Haha.  These will be great for keeping my feet warm when I'm just hanging out at home (seriously, I am somehow always freezing), but also easy to throw on when it's time to take Francis out.

The Widow Clicquot •  This book came out before I could even legally drink champagne, but I've been hearing about it a lot over the past few months and I'm really intrigued.  It's about a young widow building a champagne empire.  Who doesn't love a good success story, especially when it involves champagne?!

S'mores Candy •  This is my favorite candy in the entire world.  It's overpriced, and one of those things that I only indulge in at Christmas time.  (When it goes on sale, though, I buy a few and ration them out.  #embarrassing)

Tunics •  Leggings are my best friend in the winter.  I used to be really into showing leg in the winter, but it's much colder this year than it has been the past two years, so I'm wearing leggings under everything.  On the weekends, leggings are my pants, and  I love to throw a long tunic over them and go.  So I'm hoping to get a couple of tunics in my stocking this year to put on rotation with the others.

If you aren't sufficiently depressed by the lack of glamour in this year's Christmas list, I'd love to hear what's on your list!  Happy Monday, sweet friends :)

  11. hahaha I feel you.. last year I literally asked for chapstick and socks. It's a byproduct of aging/not having money to spend on yourself, I'm convinced
