What's On Your Holiday Wish List? My Top 5 Items

Sunday, December 08, 2013

Tis the season! I am unusually getting in the holiday spirit quite early. Normally, it takes me until right before the week of Christmas to get off my butt and be festive. Not this year. I've kept the house constantly sprayed with the Cranberry Home Spray from Bath and Body Works. I just need to get my hands on the Cranberry Oil from The Body Shop, so that when I walk in my house, it always smells like Christmas!

I have abandoned the traditional commercialization of Christmas (going broke) and only treat myself, and few others, to things I really think are thoughtful and, quite frankly, pleases me as well in the process… as in gifting to myself! I have been practicing this tradition for the past three years and will continue to do so. I find it help me have a Holly Jolly Christmas. Can you all tell I LOVE Christmas carols?! 

Here are the top 5 items on my Holiday List

Well I knew this was coming, but I didn’t expect to be overwhelmed by it. I mean, I have the first and second editions, so I didn’t think I was really going to be inclined to want the third. I took a gander at those colors and they are so pretty! My first thought was wow, those would look GREAT on my skin complexion. All pinks and browns. This guy has been sold out for a while and I saw today, it is available on Sephora.com and Ulta. I'm probably going to pull the trigger on this one. If I don’t get it for Christmas, I am sure I will eventually get it.

I received one of these as a gift two years ago and absolutely fell in love with the scent. I am looking to replace it this year. I originally received the Goji Berry, but I am also curious about the other scents, particularly Crane Flower. The candle itself is very large. However, it still didn’t take me very long to get to the bottom of this thing. Definitely something I am planning to treat myself to, sooner than later. Captivating scent and a nice decorative piece to add to your classy home! Here are the descriptions of the scents, taken directly from the website

Goji Berry: cold-pressed tarocco orange blended with sun-dried goji berries
Santiago Huckleberry: sweet and spicy, with hints of vanilla pod and sugarcane
Baltic Amber: forest scents of sandalwood and cedar
Capri Fig Frangipani: sweet and tart, with a hint of sweet rose petals
French Cade Lavender: a refreshing blend of French cade wood, lavender, verbena and moss
Bella Sucre: a lush mix of demerara sugar, tiare flower and coconut milk
Eden and Pear: lemon vervaine, ancient galbanum and ripe hosui pear
Mokara: Mokara orchid, white lily and spring moss
Crane Flower: ripened grapefruit combines with geranium, lavender and nectar inspired by the Birds of Paradise flower

Crane Flower

Goji Berry

Apple iPhone 5S- Gold
Honestly, I have just about had it with the iPhone. I HATE iOS7. If there is an equally attractive phone with great features, such as good user predictability, camera, apps, etc., ideas are welcome! For now I want the 5S in gold solely for the fingerprint scanner. Yes, I am a sucker for gadgets.

Seychelles Best Laid Plans Wedge Bootie
I have been eyeballing these for a while now. I have been trying to wait until the price drops, but it seems I will be waiting until spring for that! I may just close the deal on these, they are too cute! They are at $102 on Amazon and I found them cheaper on southmoonunder.com for $86. With my luck, as soon as I get them, they will go down to like $39 or something! The Cognac color is very nice as well, but my heart lies with the black.

This perfume has been a staple in my perfume collection for as long as I can remember. It is such a sexy, grown-woman fragrance and throughout the day it just smells better. It is quite pricey—the last time I bought it, it was about $90. I have many perfume oils that are much, much cheaper than your traditional perfume, but I always keep a genuine Classique. It is without a doubt, my favorite perfume and I've just run out. This would make a great Xmas gift! Hint hint, nudge nudge!
