Gift Guide | My Christmas Wish List

Today I thought I would share what's on my personal holiday wishlist. A bit of a mix of fashion, lifestyle, and beauty items.

My morning coffee and tea would be much more chic with the Anthropologie Limited Edition Golden Monogram Mug. A cute item to give as small gift for a fellow caffeine addicted friend. I would love to find a box of Fatty Sundays Gourment Chocolate Covered Pretzels in Toasted Coconut in my stocking. I had a sample in my Birchbox, and they were just so good. And I mean come on, opening presents is tough work, I am going to need a snack... My nail polish obsession is well documented, so I don't think I need much of an explanation as to why Deborah Lippmann Glitter and Be Gayis on my wishlist. This luxe polish is gorgeous but not something I would be able to in good conscience splurge on myself. For the stationery addict in me, these Kate Spade Bow Paper Clips would be the perfect little gift. I love Lush and their holiday items are just the cutest. The Lush Baby Frosty set comes with two bath bombs, Butterball and Father Christmas. Two items on my to-try list. My appreciation for skincare started this year, so it would be fitting to end 2013 with a new face mask in the rotation. Spotting an ad for the Fresh 'Crème Ancienne' Ultimate Nourishing Honey Mask had me wanting to try a honey mask. However, that Fresh mask is expensive. Like really expensive, like over a hundred dollars expensive. Just not going to happen. But I found this alternative, the Antipodes Aura Manuka Honey Mask. And on to the wishlist it went. The Illume Balsam Cedar Candle & Diffuser Set smells just like a christmas tree and is gorgeously packaged. A perfect gift to spruce up the apartment. I promise I didn't mean to make that joke. Again. I really think I have said that before... As I mentioned in my palette gift guide, Urban Decay Naked 3 Palette is a must-have. One, I have had a bit of a love for rosy shades this past year and two, I just feel compulsed to buy all the naked palettes. Gotta catch 'em all. The Zara Double-Sided Scarf has been on my wishlist for awhile; it just looks so cozy and stylish. In just checking today, I discoverd the scarf pictured is sold out. I won't say I was going to shed a tear, but I was quite disappointed. Fortunately, there is a super similar option now available. And I have to say I just might like this darker toned version a bit better. Finally, I have the Muji Acrylic Case 5 Drawers on my list. You have to store all your new christmas make-up bits somewhere right? Plus, my boyfriend would probably be terrible shopping at Sephora, but since he loves Muji I think I can convince him to stop by and do a little christmas shopping...

What's on your holiday wishlist?
