Y’all know my love for a good wishlist on here, but this time of year my personal wishlist starts to get intertwined with gift guides! I figure if I would include something in a personal wishlist, I’d absolutely love to gift it as well! So, let’s just roll with it… shall we?
Here’s what’s currently on my late fall, pre-Christmas, but really mostly Christmas, but also some items I know I won’t be able to hold out for until Christmas… LIST:
As I know I’ve
complained about mentioned in the past, I really dislike cold weather. And as the weather finally turned here recently, I’m currently walking around with 20 miscellaneous layers on at any given time. But as we were on the church patio yesterday, I saw a cute mom bundled in a down parka similar to this one and a lightbulb went off in my head! I need a long down parka that I can bundle up in now until March. It needs to be able to go with everything and not look like a ski jacket and can be dressed up or down. I’ve been hunting online since we came home from church (a cold woman on a mission) and I LOVE this option! And I don’t care if we live in California… I’m freezing when it drops below 70!
A staple year after year! I currently have a similar pair, but as I went to reach for them this weekend, they are looking a little old and sad. Perhaps it’s time for a new pair!
Tis the season where I’m going to start making this mulled cider on a regular basis! Nothing beats the Williams Sonoma Mulling Spices… nothing!
Ginger. Jar. Ornaments. WHAT MORE CAN I SAY?????? #NEED
Lipstick is one of the most yucky-for-you (filled with hash metals & parabens) beauty products you apply on a daily basis… because you’re essentially ingesting it as you wear it throughout the day. I’ve switched over to Beautycounter’s Lip Sheers and absolutely love them, but have missed having more bold and intense pigmented options as well. WELP, Santa came early and Beautycounter launched this Color Intense Lip Set as a part of their Holiday 2017 collection and it’s what my Christmas lipstick dreams are made of! Each shade is formulated for every skintone and the color pay off is amazing! I can’t wait to get my hands on it and honestly… TODAY IS THE DAY because I just saw that quantities are limited!!! Once what’s in stock is sold, a restock won’t be expected until later in the season so if this is up your alley – run, don’t walk!
Okay, I confess. This palette is also being purchased today! I can’t stand it any longer and I need to be able to play with it (and the lipsticks) so I can share my reviews with y’all! I’ve been holding out on purchasing Beautycounter eyeshadows since I’ve still be stuck in my old palette ways…but I’m so glad I waited for this one! This eyeshadow palette has every color I would ever need! I love how the options of ‘looks’ will be endless with this. Also… it’s a LOT of bang for your buck! As I’ve watched other Beautcyounter consultants review it… I’m amazed at how big/how much shadow you’re actually getting! Way more than your standard palette you’d find at Ulta. It’s an investment, yes…. but totally will complete your eyeshadow needs for 2 years! Worth it.
Speaking of getting bang for your buck… this trio of glosses is just that! I’ve yet to commit to any Beautycounter glosses simply because I can’t decide on just one color! #problems. But with this trio, I feel like I no longer have to choose! If you’re a gloss girl, this is a deal! And if you’re looking for pinks and roses, they have the same trio but in pinks!
I’m always on the hunt for a good coffee table book AND Sam and I love our trips to Napa. This seems like a perfect fit to add to my collection, especially after the recent fires. I’d love to have this out as a continual reminder to pray for those effected!
I’m a candle horder, especially this time of year! I still love my Bath & Body Works candles and will likely get a few Christmas scents throughout the season, but this Nest Candle really does take the cake as one of the best smelling Christmas candles I’ve ever burned. It’s definitely on the higher price point end, but totally splurge worthy. I love having one a season and burning it for special occasions!
I’ve wanted these Tory Burch Pearls season after season, year after year and they still remain on my wishlist. Santa?
Look familiar? They were on my fall wishlist! Yep, still hoping.. waiting… wishin’. Mrs. Claus?
Have you ever felt a Barefoot dreams robe while at Nordies? If so, you know they’re heavenly. I’ve always had heart eyes for them and going back to the fact that I’m always cold AND the only robes I currently own are from my wedding and are for summer weather…. I’d say perhaps it’s time to pull the trigger! Do any of y’all have a Barefoot Dreams robe? If so, be my enabler and tell me I need one, too!
Are you now ready to create your own wishlist?! ‘Tis the season! And if y’all like these wishlists/gift guides… let me know! Would y’all want more for this upcoming Christmas season? I’d love to create more and at different price points/gift categories if that is of interest to you! Let me know by shooting me an email or letting me know in a comment on this post!
Wishing y’all a great start to your weeks!
