10 Things on my Christmas 2014 Wish List


The holidays seem to change the older I get- at least when it comes to gift giving and receiving. Whether it's deciding to take a trip, buying a big item purchase for your home or family, or putting money towards an experience of some sort (a concert, play, sporting event, etc), the holidays are less about the presents under the tree.

With that being said, here are a few things I would love to receive this year- and some thing I'd say would make pretty great gifts for someone else too :) I'm linking up with Elise for the These Are a Few of my Favorite Things linkup. Affiliate links are used in this post and I will earn a small commission based on clicks and/or purchases. 



1. I'm pretty set on eye shadow with the Urban Decay Naked Basics palette, but I've heard amazing things about sable & sumptuous olive for people with brown eyes.

2. I'm on the hunt for a new blush and cedar rose by Lancome is the front runner. I had a sample of this shade a few years ago and remember loving it. Exposed by Tarte and Mood Exposure by Hourglass are also up there.

3. I've been into lipsticks lately and would love to try the new line from NARS- the shade Anna looks gorgeous.

4. I keep things pretty simple when it comes to my hair, and I usually use coconut oil when I'm in need of a mask, but I would love a little extra pampering with the Bumble & Bumble Creme De Coco hair mask.

5. I love the mini RL bag I got for my birthday, but something a little bit bigger would be nice and I'm loving both the RL Newbury Double Zip Shopper & the Rebecca Minkoff Amorous Tote.

6. I've always wanted to try a lip scrub so sparkling peach by Sara Happ would be a total splurge and amazing gift.

7. I recently got a sample of the Giorgio Armani Acqua Di Gioia perfume and was in love with it! All of my other perfumes are extremely floral, so this one would be something different for my collection.

8. I love this slightly oversized cotton plaid shirt from Madewell- it looks amazingly comfortable and I love the colors, though I actually wouldn't mind one in every color!

9. I've never been huge into jewelry or accessories, but every once in a while something really catches my eye & this necklace from Piperlime by House of Harlow is beautiful with the rose gold and blue quartz is gorgeous.

10. Lastly, I've had my eye on these sunglasses for a while now- I know winter isn't primetime for wearing sunglasses since it seems like the sun is rarely out, but these would be a much welcomed Christmas gift anyway!

There are also a handful of things from Etsy that I would love & a few books I have my eye on, so part two of my wish list might be coming soon. What are some things on your holiday wish list this year?

  4. A black bag is on my list too! And you would love a lip scrub- I haven't tried that specific one, but it's a must for dry lips in the winter especially if you're wearing lipstick. Great picks!! xo

  5. That lipstick looks so pretty! I have been loving Tarte lipsurgence lately. My 3rd one is in the mail right now lol. I am going to do a review soon! That blush looks very nice too! xo

  6. I want that Madewell plaid shirt too! I have one from last year and it's my favorite! I've been wanting to try Nars Lipsticks. I've heard nothing but great reviews!

  7. My entire beauty product collection could use a serious overhaul. Lip scrubs are amazing for dry winter months. I ran out ages ago and have been using my toothbrush to gently exfoliate my lips, but sometimes it hurts! I've tried and loved Moroccanoil Restorative Hair Mask, but would be curious to try out the Bumble & Bumble one. And I'm always down for a slouchy plaid shirt!! - B xx

  9. The NARS lipsticks are definitely on my list! I really like this Anna shade. Also, I would love to get the Lorac Pro 2 palette. I'm a little late on getting any of the Lorac palettes. Great list!

  11. What a great post - I hope some of (or all of!) these things find their way to you. :) My big-ticket item I asked my parents for was a Kate Spade watch. I've never heard of that lip scrub that you mentioned, but it sounds fantastic!
