Happy hizzledays everyone!
And apparently I am stuck in 2007, but according to Urban Outfitters 1997 is back so I’m only like a decade off.
I get so frickin’ excited to start shopping for Christmas gifts around this time! And this year, I have a new human to buy for :). Hope she likes random sh*t I find on sale between now and Dec, 25 🙂 .
For myself though, the theme is basic and black! I need a few real practical items like black sneakers and a new travel coffee cup…but also want to try my hand at gel nails! See below:
So I am like, really good at painting my own nails. Trouble is, regular nail polish is terrible. It chips within minutes and takes FOREVER to dry. I used to have time for this, but anymore, I do not. I have acquired what I have determined to be a mediocre level of knowledge on gel nails and from that, have decided I am ready for an LED lamp. Because a UV one just won’t do. I also need to purchase a set of polishes and some other doo-dads but…patience.
2. Gapfit Studio Side Stripe Joggers (Small Tall)
Did I tell you guys that I recently discovered TALL SIZES on various online retailers? I feel like such an idiot, walking around all this time with my sleeves too short and highwater pants, when J CREW has had a “tall shop” probs for like, years. I recently bought a J Crew quilted army green jacket in a medium tall and my life is forever changed. Now I need ALL THE THINGS in tall sizes. But the first order of business is getting a GD pair of joggers or sweatpants that are f-ing long enough. These ones from the Gap look so cute!
3. Gap sweatshirt (Small Tall)
Same thing goes for sweatshirts!
4. Nike Cortez Sneakers (9.5)
R.I.P my fave black perforated vans. I’ve had them for 3 years but I can no longer wear these out of the house. Both my big toes have busted through the top and they are now unacceptable. The Nike Cortez black on black sneakers look like a fun change-up!
This could be the most practical item I have ever actually wished for.
6. Bumble & Bumble Styling Set
You guys know the ongoing saga that is my hair. Currently we’re in the awkward grow-out phase of postpartum hair loss and LORD give me allll the volume. Without it I am afraid it’s 80’s rocker hair all up in here.
7. Tatcha Silk Canvas Primer Mini
I am fresh outta primer and have always wanted to try this bougie one from Tatcha. They just released it in a mini which is perfect. Everyone should come in mini if you ask me.
And that’s it! I mean, obviously I could tolerate the entire holiday collection at Lush, or of course anything from Sephora. Or Yankee Candle. Oh! I actually really need a new wallet…
