What's on my Christmas Wish List
Hey guys! We are fast approaching the holidays, and for me, I become really stressed when people start asking me what I would like for Christmas. I have a hard time coming up with things on the spot. Every year I try come up with a big list so: 1. I don't know which items I'm actually going to receive and 2. People who are buying things can get an idea of things I like and make decisions off of that. I know this is a beauty blog, but to be honest, I almost never ask for makeup for gifts. I have all kinds of random interests, so this list has quite a bit of variety. I hope this gives you some ideas for yourself or other people you are buying for.
I have two options here, one is a splurge from Madewell and the other is a bargain from American Eagle Outfitters. Both of these are really beautiful, cozy blanket scarves. Since it is basically fall weather all winter long in LA, I get a lot of use out of scarves during these months.
My husband and I recently bought a Playstation 4, and these two games are on my "need to play" list. Assassin's Creed Unity and Little Big Planet 3. When I'm not blogging, I am usually playing some sort of video game, whether that's on my PC or Playstation. The great thing about LBP3 is that it's co-op, and is super fun to play with other people. Basically, I just laugh the whole time at how cute the sack people are. If you have any gamers in your life and are struggling with what to get them, let me know. I'd be happy to recommend some games or nerdy gifts to buy!
You guys know that I love to read, so of course books are always on my wish list. I looked through my To-Read list on Goodreads and picked out some that I don't own yet, but really want to read soon. For me, those were:
- Landline by Rainbow Rowell
- Satan Loves You by Grady Hendrix
- Narrow Road to the Deep North by Richard Flanagan
- The Girl with All the Gifts by M.R. Carey
Of course I could not neglect this category. The only makeup item I included is a splurge item. I've had my eye on the Charlotte Tilbury Dolce Vita palette, and I've come close to buying it so many times, but I just don't have the heart. This is one of those things that realistically I wouldn't buy for myself, so it's definitely a good wish list item.
Next, my beloved Diptyque Eau Duelle perfume has just about run out. I would love to get more, but I can't justify spending $90 on a perfume right now. On the wish list it goes!
Kiehl's is a brand that I really want to try more of, but I never make it out to their store. They have a whole bunch of awesome holiday sets, so I picked out this one. This has 5 of their most popular skin care items. They have a ton of really awesome sets, for guys and girls, definitely check it out if you are looking for a great skincare gift.
Last, but not least! Look at that amazing Laura Mercier bath set. This is like the ultimate pamper session in a box. It's in the scent Amber Vanille, which... yum. I'm down for that.
I know, it's a lot! But I really don't like knowing what all my gifts are, so I just try to give a lot of ideas. What is on your Wish List this holiday season?
