My Christmas Wishlist

First and foremost, I want to thank all of you 42 beauties that are following my blog! You guys are the bestest! I started writing on Blogger only a few months ago and I never thought people would really care to read what I wrote. I still get excited every time I see that number go up. I don't know; it's just a nice feeling. Yay! Perhaps I shall have a little giveaway type thing in the near future. Let me know if you'd be up for that. But honestly, who wouldn't be up for a chance to get some free stuffies!? Hello!

Now on to other pressing matters.

There have been a few 'Christmas Wishlist' blog posts going around. And I personally enjoy reading them. I like to see what the girlies are yearning for this season.

So, I have a few things I would love to own as well, someday (soon). They're not all beauty related, as you'll notice. And I absolutely do not expect to get any of these things for Christmas by any means. This is merely just for fun.

First up, a pink typewriter! How cute, right!? I want to own a type-writer because I love old, vintage things. And this one has got a modern flare to it. Very girly. I could write thank you notes or poems to my friends and family on it. Not that I write poems now, but I could start.

Cranium! I've never played this game before, but I heard it's fun. I love board games! And I want to start a little collection of games. Last year I received Monopoly: The World Edition from my mom. But it's hard to find people to play with because it can be a pretty long game.

I love this scent, it's one of my favorites. But I've never actually owned a bottle of Givenchy's Hot Couture. Whenever I go to the store I spray some on and then ask for samples.

I randomly picked this up to have a whiff and was pleasantly surprised. A lot of fragrances (in my opinon) have a chemical smell to them and I don't like that. However, this one smells delicious in the bottle, even before it's on the skin. It's Parisienne by Yves St Laurent. I'm sure there are scent descriptions online some where if you'd like.

I swatched the NARS Multiple in Luxor while I was at their counter during my recent travels and I liked it so much! I should have gotten it while it was right in front of me. But it was $47. And I'm not an impulse buyer. But now I can't just go back and pick it up. I'd have to order it online. I also swatched a few other multiple highlighters, including Copacabana, but Luxor was my fave.

This is also a pricier item, considering it is a mascara. I was talking to one of the sales woman in the Bay and she had very  beautiful brown eyes with lashes nicely coated in a deep blue mascara. Her brown eyes popped. So I commented on that and she went to go get me the YSL Faux CIls in color #6, a blackened navy blue. But they didn't have any in stock. Bummer. I really wanted it.

A crock pot so I can finally cook meals! I like simple. No muss no fuss. I currently do not cook aside from a couple fried eyes (wow, edit! eyes? I meant eggs) or a grilled sausage. I'm learning.

I love books. Just as much as I love makeup. I know, who would have thought, right!? I really enjoyed Jeannette Walls' first memoir The Glass Castle. It was hard to get into at the beginning, but hold on, it does get much better. It's an amazing story. So I'd really like to read her 2nd book, Half Broke Horses, a real-life novel about her grandmother.

That's it for now! Well, I also need a pair of boots for the snow... I really need to stop because, unfortunately, this list could be longer if I wanted. But I've got to jet to my hair appointment! I'm just getting a trim, nothing major. Maybe I'll do a hair post sometime.

I hope you're all enjoying the festivities of whichever holiday you celebrate, if you celebrate any. Thanks again for reading! And if you have a list up, let me know, I'd love to check it out! Have a wonderful day!

I heart Hot Couture, I was sooo sad when it was discontinued years ago (only 3 years after it's release) but I'm glad it came back a couple years ago!! I used to depend on ebay for buying the pretty miniature perfume bottles :) Great wishlist, hun!
