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

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

The Naked 3 Palette

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.

Voluspa Japonica Candle Tin – Anthropologie

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

ripe hosui pear

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.

JEAN PAUL GAULTIERCLASSIQUE Eau de Parfum

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!
