What’s On My Christmas Wishlist!



OUTFIT DETAILS 

BEANIE : Forever 21 // TOP : J Crew - M // SCARF : Old Navy // JEANS : Paige- 28 TTS, lots of stretch // BOOTS : Target // BAG : LV Croisette // 




I've wanted this backpack for forever! I love the classic Gucci logo look- I've been dying to get my hands on a cute backpack period but I just love this one! Super pricey tho :( 


We have the SMALLEST kitchen ever right now- counter space wise! So this min PINK coffee maker is so so perfect! Plus, I am the only one in this house that drinks coffee- so I can have it all to myself!


I've been wanting this top for so long- I usually don't put clothes on my wish lists anymore but there are a few pieces I've been dying to have and I have run out of other options! Lol. Caleb keeps asking me what I want!


I have the dress version of these PJs and it is soooo comfy! They are SUPER soft and so affordable!

I've been wanting a different lens ( even when I had my last camera) but I didn't want to invest in one until I had the camera I really wanted. I caved and bought my SL2 and now I just want this lens to add on!


YAY! More clothes lol. I think this tunic is super cute- they have it advertised as sleep but I'd wear it as a dress haha. 


I've been wanting a mixer for a while now (pink of course) to do some baking!



My attempt at being a -little- more organized lol I have sooo much jewelry and nowhere to put it all!

SWEATER: Aerie (old) similar here & here //  BOOTS: Target - TTS 7.5 // LIP: Colourpop //

Love wearing this "Christmas Tree" green for winter! Lol especially paired with a red lip- it's perfect for the holidays- I think this sweater would be super cute with a plaid skirt too. 

These boots I have been wearing nonstop- if you couldn't tell from my Instagram. lol, The best boots EVER and they're under $50- also would make a great gift if you know her shoes size! haha.

My aunts and mom all got these one year and they are so cute- can do the kids initials in it! I wanted one but then I just got Liam's name (since I only have one) lol!


Let's be honest, if you've seen the inside of my car- you know I need this! HAHAH. They're really useful when you grocery shop too so your groceries don't go flying everywhere!


Such a great idea for coffee drinkers- esp at work or if they stay at home all morning!


Such adorable piece to add to any luggage or bad!


I think this one is just so sweet- especially if your mom or grandmother have a special recipe for something!


AHHH I love this one too- I want  to get one of the house I grew up in before they sell it! Hopefully won't be anytime soon.


If you've been on Instagram- you've probably seen this massager- but you definitely need it in your life! Lol


SO sweet- love the watercolor- comes in a ton of different sizes!


Nice leather tote in multiple colors!

Red Lips for the Holidays


my favorite:


Super matte, lightweight- easy to take off! Will most likely be going back for more colors- I love this stuff!

Others in the video :


Not at all a holiday red- unless you pair it with a liner! But still a really pretty color I think and a great formula!


Really pretty pinky red! This one is not matte- shiny and glossy!


This one was my favorite from last year- It does have to be reapplied often!

NYX Liquid Suede - Kitten Heels

This one was a front runner too- over all I just chose the colourpop because it is more lightweight- I still really liked this one! 


Loved this one a lot too- super matte, but I feel like color is more orangey than a true red!

What to Get Your : Fiance, Husband, Boyfriend, Guy Friend Gift Guide



Have y'all done ANY Christmas shopping yet? I think I have bought maybe 1-2 gifts and that's it! Lol I need to catch up and fast. Some of these are things I purchased for Caleb last year that he loved. I feel like guys are ALWAYS the hardest to buy for! Anyone else? Hopefully these will land you some gifts to mark off your list or spark some imagination for another gift!

1. Trinket Storage

I got Caleb the brown one last year and he loves it! Before we lived together he had this little cardboard box that he would put everything from his pockets in after being gone all day and it drove me nuts LOL! I randomly found this strolling through Belk and saw this and I was like ahh PERFECT! If your man is also someone who has a ton of watches- this other box is perfect to organize them too- Caleb has a ton so this may be on my list for him this year. . .




2. Liquor Dispenser 


I think this is such a fun, unique gift! I've never really seen anything like it!

3. Watches




I've given Caleb several watches over the years and these are amazing pieces! They're affordable but still super nice!

4. A nice Pullover or Jacket



Guys are horrible at buying clothes for themselves- so dress your man for the Winter months lol! Caleb can pick out things that he likes/wants but he rarely will buy himself clothes- so I usually get him something like this for Winter.

5. Slippers


Love the hard bottom on these- Caleb has some and loves them!


6. Airpods & Accessories




7. Pomade

This stuff smells amazing and works great if your man has slicked back hair or a style that uses pomade!

8. Laptop Accessories




Privacy screen for when you're working in public or at school- also this laptop case is amazing- tons a colors!

9. Survival Kit for the Outdoorsy



10. Cord Organizer - For the Traveler 













Caleb got these a few weeks ago and I love them! They're different- but not too different- and they'll keep his feet warm! haha
