{life} christmas wishlist

As I get older, I am beginning to think of less and less items that I want/need under the tree Christmas morning. I never really like asking my parents for *things* because they truly support me completely.

This year, I did ask for one (big) present for Christmas...  a plane ticket to NYC to spend New Year's with my boyfriend. It is going to be FABULOUS! I will finally get my first paycheck right before I leave for the city. Thank goodness too... NYE in the city is so not cheap. eeek.

I decided to come up with a little wishlist with a few dream items I have been eyeing for a while, as well as practical items I use every day!

You can check out my Polyvore here!

1. Bare Escentuals Foundation - I love this stuff. My face tends to break out pretty easily and this is the best foundation I have found to keep it from doing so. Application is easy and quick and it really looks like you aren't wearing any makeup at all. Definitely always need a supply of this stuff!
2. Michael Kors Tortoise Shell Watch - Dream item NUMBER 1! I have loved this watch from a distance but it is quite pricey. A pretty good replacement (and money saver) for the Michael Kors watch is a Geneva watch. Quality is nowhere near the same but it keeps a college fashionista's wallet a lot happier!
3. Loafer Heels - Dream item NUMBER 2! I have been loving the look of flat loafers and heeled loafers this season. I don't know how often I would wear these SM Anne Pumps but they sure are cute!
4. Statement Necklaces - While I do love this Liz Claiborne necklace, I am more going for the whole trend of statement necklaces while adding this one to my list. I need to work on my jewelry and accessory skills. I love how a simple white tee can be spruced up so much with dark denim, wedges, and a statement necklace.
5. Flawless Definition Bare Escentuals Mascara - I looove the Flawless Definition mascara I use by Bare Escentuals. The wand is perfect for long, full eyelashes. Mine is running a little low currently.... good stocking stuffer?! :)
6. OPI Nail Polish - Just like with the statement necklace, this is more of a broad, anything goes wish list item. I love nail polish and OPI always seems to have the best color options! I'm especially loving their holiday collection though.

What is on your wishlist this year?
Link up your blog post and let us know!

  1. I felt the same way when creating my Christmas list because my parents help pay for college so I really only put things I really needed with a couple of wants thrown in.

  2. I am a huge fan of the statement necklace, too, and I love the one you chose!

  3. fun list! i love a statement necklace and opi polish :)

  4. I have and love that watch! That was my birthday gift this summer :) Fun wish list!

  5. Great list! I am asking for a MK watch too :) I am a new follower to your blog. xx


  6. I love wish lists! I have been eying that same MK watch, but I can't seem to justify another watch purchase after my Marc Jacobs one I received last year!

    And you can never have too many statement necklaces :)

    I am so excited that you get to spend NYE in New York with your boyfriend! That is such an incredible gift!
