Dear Santa

Can anyone tell me where the hell December went?! Christmas is only 9 days away. I'm ready but at the same time I'm not. This is my most favorite season and I'm not ready for it to almost be over.

I'm one of those crazies that insists on doing their holiday shopping on Black Friday, although this year, I really wasn't into it. K and I braved the "storm" and made all the rounds and I was able to finish my shopping this weekend. I even picked up some great stuff for myself at JCP. Now that the shopping is finished it's time for the the fun part - wrapping!

Aside from that, there's not much going on over here. I was watching Calendar Girls yesterday and came up with a great idea for a Shutterfly gift for myself. I'll share soon but let me just say I am so looking forward to 2014.

Speaking of gifts for myself, there are some things I asked for that I know aren't going to show up under any tree unless I put them there. Which is fine. I'm already planning on where to buy them.

Santa Baby

1) I need black boots, bad. I had to toss my old pair and I haven't been able to find the right fit. I love the quilt on these White Mountain boots from DSW. Unfortunately they're sold out in my size but I plan to find something similar.

2) I think these Jessica Simpson lace up booties are adorable. They're much better than those ugly wedge sneakers. I just hate those things so much. These are a stylish alternative.
3) I hate being confined to my desk with my laptop. I need a lap desk so that I can be comfortable all over my apartment. I'm not really picky about this but I'd really prefer one with fans. My HP gets so hot.

4) Oh FitBit. I have been eyeing this thing for weeks! I asked for one and am keeping my fingers crossed but I'm not too hopeful. I really like the Flex and that's the one I want but really, I'll take either.

5) I have been asking for a North Face Denali fleece for oh... three years, and I still don't have one. This year I'm just resolving to buy the damn thing myself. I'm the worst dresser for in-between seasons and I know this will take care of all my coat needs.

6) I received a sample of Urban Decay's Naked Skin in my Ipsy bag about a month before it hit the market and I absolutely loved it. It works great with my skin and now I want the whole shebang. I'm sure it won't be in my stocking so I'll be sure to hit up Ulta.

What will you be buying yourself this year?


  1. I really want to buy myself a new fancy smancy camera, they are so expensive and I am so cheap. :(

  2. I need new makeup brushes and looking forward to buying it for myself. LOL

  3. I learned a LONG time ago ya gotta take care of yourself, 'cause ain't no one gonna do it any bettah!!!!Merry Christmas to you girl.

  4. #4 and #5 are on my list too...great minds...

    I agree with the wedge booties, so much better than those weird sneaker-ish things.

  5. I actually haven't done any Christmas shopping. It's probably a crime.

  6. "it's time for the the fun part - wrapping!"---Was this sarcastic? If not, will you wrap my gifts? I hate wrapping.

  7. I feel the same way - where has the time gone! Love those boots!

    Sparkles and Shoes

  8. I can get on board with that list ;)
