What I Wish I Added to My Christmas List

December 9, 2011 · 46 comments

I’m cut off from adding to my wishlist. I realize I get a little excessive when I make my list in November and then think “SHOOT, I ALSO REALLY NEED A SOFA COVER AND THROW PILLOWS. And maybe a gerbil.” My dad has always taught me there’s a big difference between things you want and things you need. Well, after careful consideration (that’s a lie. I found these and immediately knew I needed to announce it to the world), I have decided I need the following:

1. The WineRack.

To all friends and family who have not yet bought my Christmas gift and feel like dropping $30 on me. I want this WineRack. And I’m not kidding. Think of all the activities I can wear this baby to! I’m going to be rockin’ concerts and festivals with these babies. Watch out, world.

2. Twig rings and pebble rings from Colbyjune Jewelry on Etsy Cause I need ’em.

I need everything from Colbyjune’s shop.

3. Mirrored Mirth Trees from Anthropologie.

Isn’t that set adorable all together? Maybe I can get one per year?

And, ya know, everything else in their store. I could go on and on.

4. I tried my mom’s Clarisonic while visiting home last week. Why the heck hadn’t I borrowed this puppy before? My skin felt awesome after using it.

These puppies even come in yellow and teal. Looks like it’s going on next Christmas’ list.

4. A rain jacket. How do I have a million really cute coats and jackets without hoods? Smart. I have been eyeing the Northface Resolve Jacket, but if anyone has some cute rain jackets to throw my way, I’d love to see ’em.

5. And I’m still trying to decide between a this and this. I’m not sure which Chloe would like better. Because everyone needs a piglet or a baby hippo to complete their happy household.

The wine rack is basically genius. If no one in your family splurges and gets you one… maybe you could make your own with a camelback. Well I guess you might need two camelbacks if you don’t want to be lopsided.

I am so behind on this, but I just discovered Etsy last night. I LOVE it! They have the cutest jewelry. If I didn’t already do a lot of my Christmas shopping, I would have ordered so many gifts off of that site. I really like those pebble rings!

How do you explain your boobs deflating as the night goes on? I guess you just hope everyone else has had to much to drink and doesn’t notice you went from a D to a B cup. Haha. I bought the imitation clarisonic (the oil of olay one) and it broke! I guess you get what you pay for.
