Can you believe I have been posting my Christmas list on this blog for 9 years? NINE. If you need a laugh, go take a gander at my 2013 list where I include a statement necklace from Forever 21, a DVD, AND a Lord of the Rings phone case. No words are needed. Millennial me has slayed and will continue to slay.
But now. Now I slay in a slightly different way. With outfits purchased at the bins, vibrating heating pads (yes, from Walgreens), and crinkled up packets of Liquid IV found at the bottom of my purse.
And so, here is a list of material possessions that I believe will make my life better. Whether or not they actually will is a story for another day.
Found this ring via TokTok (where else?) and it was love at first sight. Ignore the pun. It is simple, feminine, and I do not really own any rings other than my engagement/wedding band.
I have been wanted a perfume that makes me smell like a snack, lol. Kinda like a more intense version of the Brazilian Crush no.71. This was created for Salt & Straw and as a Portlandian, I feel it is my duty to own it!
Abercrombie & Fitch Ultra Mid Puffer in Black (M)
It’s time for a new black winter workhorse. My J.Crew puffy was getting pretty tired and this one is slightly oversized, super warm and comfy.
Ralph Lauren Bear Baseball Cap
I want to own SOMETHING with the damn Ralph Lauren bear on it. The sweaters are like, super spendy though. I will settle for this ball cap.
La Fraise Sweatshirt (M/L)
It should be tradition that I get a new EllandEmm sweatshirt every year. They are high-quality, SO fun, and slightly oversized. I LOVE this one, “strawberry” en francais – j’adore!
It is time for some bougie pajamas. And the prints from Cath Kidston just SPEAK to me on every level. These are just jaw-dropping beautiful.
Le Mini Macaron Gel Polish in Bubblegum
I am all about the gel polish these days. I do it myself at home with my Le Mini Macaron macaron-shaped curing lamp! I need to add this bubblegum color to my collection.
Rhode Peptide Lip Treatment in Watermelon Slice
I think this might be a Hailey Bieber product which means I will probably never get my hands on it. But I have heard amazing things and it is an Allure Beauty Award winner. I really want the salted caramel flavor but would settle for watermelon.
Last, but most certainly not least A CANDLE DUH. I just want a super pungent birthday cake scent that I can smell from across the street. That’s it.
Merry Christmas to all you filthy animals. LYSM and see you after the madness!
