If you’re a procrastinator like me, then you probably have a few gifts left to buy on December 19th! Oh and no gifts wrapped yet, either. I decided it might be helpful to share what is on my own Christmas wish list to get some ideas flowing for those of you who are stumped on what to buy for your friend, sister, cousin or yourself! I’ve also linked everything for you to make for easy shopping!
You heard me. They make leggings with pockets now. Whoever did this is a genius and I’m questioning why it hasn’t happened sooner?! Aerie (by American Eagle) has some awesome high-waist ones that are also incredibly soft and thick enough to not worry about them getting worn or tearing anytime soon! I already have a pair, but definitely need more of these babies. I mean, who doesn’t need more leggings?
For the past few months, I’ve been on my feet more than ever! Whether its bouncing to get Taso to sleep or chasing Xander around to grab whatever he just stole off of a counter or table, my feet are ACHING! I typically go barefoot, but recently, my foot pain has been so bad that I realized a) I am getting old and b) I really need some foot support. These fluffy, sturdy slippers are one of my top requests this year to save my feet (and keep them warm!)
Like the majority of the population, you’ll see me back at the gym and working out after the new year! This year especially--- it is time for the baby weight to really start going away for good! To inspire this new venture, I definitely want to get some new, cute gym shoes to inspire and motivate me! I am loving these Adidas ones that I found at DSW!
I have only splurged on a nice pair of sunglasses once in my life. It was a pair from Ralph Lauren and I loved them. Then my dog ate them. For real. I think 5 years later, it is time to try again for a nice(r) pair than the pair from Walmart that has been my go to for the past several years. This style by QUAY is super cute and definitely my over-sized frame style. Also, they aren’t crazy expensive, but still look high-end!
My style in jewelry has changed quite drastically as of late. I used to go for the huge statement necklaces, and if the occasion calls for it, I’ll still wear those. But now I am more drawn to finer, daintier pieces. There are several necklaces from Uncommon James that totally caught my eye as I was perusing their website while watching Very Cavallari, (haha she’s a marketing genius) but the one that I have linked is definitely my favorite!
Make Up Brushes
An awesome gift for any makeup-obsessed individual would be a new set of brushes! There are so many different types, that it can be overwhelming if you are out of your element in the beauty aisle, so a nice set is your best bet at giving them something that they need and will use! Jaclyn Hill’s brush sets from Morphe are definitely on my list this year. She has the whole set (linked) or as a less expensive option, the eye set or face set!
Two of my favorite YouTubers collaborated with a make up company called Dose of Colors to create a line of make up this year and while I cannot justify buying myself a new eye shadow palette, I would gladly let someone else buy one for me! This Desi x Katy palette has some fun colors and some everyday colors and of course is great quality!
The fragrance commercials seem never ending during this time of year, but it really is a great gift if you know the type of scent, or even better, the exact scent that the person wears! Perfume is not something I will wear everyday, but when I do, I want it to smell expensive and last all day! My favorite scent these days is Miss Dior Blooming Bouquet. It has a light floral scent without being too overpowering! Plus you really only need two sprays and you are set!
I hope you enjoyed my Christmas list and find it helpful in these last few days of shopping or to go spend all of your gift cards on! I am really hoping to get back into the swing of more consistent blog posts starting in 2019! Here’s hoping and here’s to a fresh start in a new year! Happy Holidays!
