“It is always far better to give than to receive”
If you didn’t know my birthday is on December 9th, and with Christmas being on December 25th, I seem to have to figure out what I want not only earlier than usual but I have to find more that I want for my 2 significant days in December.
A little fun fact about my family is that they do not give cash as presents. So I try to find extra items to list every single year. Sometimes this feels like a burden but other times it is nice since the cash wouldn’t always necessarily go to what I would purchase as a gift but would go to me taking a little, travel, or food at college. (In reality I am only asking for about 3 of these things from my parents. My hair dyed, the All Yoga Leggings, and 1 pair of the 2 tennis shoes I listed.)
What you may not know about me is that I would much rather give than receive and that Christmas is my favorite holiday and winter is my favorite time of year. Everything about December, Christmas and winter itself gets me excited MONTHS before it actually happens. Like for example it is early November as I write this introduction to this post and I have already purchased one of my friends Christmas presents, have planned my other friends Christmas present, am drilling my sisters for what they want for Christmas, and have already basically completed this entire post on what I want for Christmas… It is November 8th…
So let’s get into a little bit of detail about each item on my list.
Elizabeth and James Nirvana Black Solid Perfume – First off read this post where I talked all about my love for this perfume. Honestly this scent is probably one of my favorites ESPECIALLY for the winter months. It is musky but also is sweet with vanilla. Honestly the best scent in my opinion.
Teddy Blake “Eva” Bag in Black Leather – I first heard of this brand from Carrie Murray and her video here, but say this style from Julia Giaimo and her video here.
Nike Air Zoom Stong (Rose Gold) – I LOVE these! They are absolutely gorgeous and a little nontraditional. I am in need of new black sneakers and these are just stunning.
Pandora Droplets Ring – I love the simplicity of this ring but with the added touch and glam of the tiny crystals in the band. It is subtle but not to simplistic.
Hair Dyed – I linked my pinterest board which has a bunch of different yet similar looks that I am really wanting to achieve. I have never dyed my hair and I like it when it is super blonde (when I have sat in the sun all summer) so why not dye it when I am not enjoying its coloring?
Alo Yoga High Waisted Moto Leggings in Black – These leggings. Omg. I absolutely love these! So cute and I love the faux leather detailing on the front.
What is on your Christmas list?
