Let me preface this post by saying there is absolutely nothing that I need for Christmas. This list of things would be nice to have but I don’t actually need anything at all. In fact, in my family we don’t even give Christmas gifts to adults because there are so many of us. We just buy for the kiddos and that’s plenty! So I won’t be getting any Christmas gifts this year and that’s fine by me. I’m still cleaning out stuff, donating to Goodwill and selling things on Poshmark because I am trying to be as minimalistic as possible. Well, minimalistic for me anyway…LOL!!
And before anyone starts to feel bad for me, I am a 35 year old woman and I buy myself whatever I want throughout the year. Mmmmmk? HA!
So even though I won’t be getting anything for Christmas I still think it’s fun to make a Christmas Wish List each year! It sort of reminds me of when I was a kid and all the BIG Christmas catalogs would start arriving and I would go through and circle every little thing I wanted even though I knew I wouldn’t be getting 99% of what I circled. Anyone else do that?? What do kids do these days??
Anyway, enough talk, let’s see my Christmas Wish List!
ONE. Nespresso VirtuoPlus Matte Black Bundle. I have been thinking about getting a Nespresso for a while now. If you know me then you know I usually only drink coffee when it’s cold outside. And for the past couple of months I have been drinking it with my protein shake and I love it that way but I do love the occasional latte and I think it would be fun to be able to make them at home! Enter into the picture, a Nespresso machine! This particular model offers several different cup sizes, a milk frother (not pictured) and the pod options are endless! You can make regular coffee, lattes, cappuccinos, espresso, etc. I see myself purchasing this soon!!!
TWO. Drybar Blowout Besties. I am obsessed with pretty much any and all Drybar products and this a great deal on three of my faves!!
THREE. Kendra Scott Cade Stud Earrings. I am a huge fan of Kendra Scott and I only wear stud earrings so this one is a no brainer. I actually had a pair of KS studs that I recently lost?? So I am actually looking for a cute pair to replace those if I don’t find mine soon!
FOUR. UGG McKay Booties. I have a love/hate relationship with UGG boots…HA! I love the way they look but I hate the way they look on me. I finally found (and purchased) my perfect pair of UGGs a couple of weeks ago and now I’m itching for another pair. I got these UGG Bailey Mini boots and they are perfect!! I don’t have to worry about them fitting on my large calves and they keep my feet nice and toasty! I think these McKay Booties will keep them just as warm and they are a little more stylish than regular UGGs.
FIVE. Drybar Tress Press Mini. I have been talking about getting this mini version of my flat iron for a while now. I want it to keep in my car to straighten out all my crazy baby hairs when I’m out and about (and for when I’m traveling). I don’t know if that makes me super extra or not but I think it’s a fabulous idea!!
SIX. IT Cosmetics IT Girl Vol. 2 Makeup Palette. I have been wanting a palette like this one for a long time! I love that it has everything you need for our face…eye shadows, blush and bronzer…all in one! How perfect would this be for travel or just to stick in your bag?! The minimalist in my needs this palette!!
SEVEN. ULTA Super Blender and Travel Case. Confession, I have never actually owned a Beauty Blender brand beauty blender. I always go for the ULTA brand versions because they are way cheaper and work just fine so why pay more? I need a new one and this one comes with a case for travel so I think I need this in my life ASAP!!
EIGHT. IT Cosmetics Superhero Lash and Liner Gift Set. I am obsessed with IT Cosmetics Superhero mascara and have been for well over a year now after they sent me a tube in a PR package. This stuff goes on super smooth and makes my lashes so BIG! I also love the liner and that is a great deal on both!
NINE. Bissell Pet Stain Eraser Cordless Upholstery & Carpet Cleaner. Perhaps the mos random thing on my list, ever since I moved into my apartment I have busted out my giant carpet cleaner more times than I can count (thanks Sophie) and I would LOVE to have a handheld cleaner that I can clean up small pet messes with instead of having to get the giant one out!
And that, my friends, concludes my 2018 Christmas Wish List. I hope maybe you found something you want as well??
What is one thing you want for Christmas this year??
