My 2016 Christmas List

Gerd yer loins.
My 2016 Christmas List is here!
My 2016 Christmas List


If interested, here are the details surrounding my choices.
Adidas Shoes:
Basic as they are, I am a ride-or-die lover of white tennies. I love my white Chuck Taylor’s (ala Benny Rodriguez), my Sperry canvas sneakers and of course all m’Vans. And since I live in the city that is home to Nike and Adidas HQ, I figure I may as well pay homage.
Tory Burch Backpack:
Similar to my feelings about white sneakers, I love backpacks. They keep your hands free, are a cinch to commute with and best of all, don’t wreak havoc on my shoulders! Can I get an amen for even weight distribution!? And since I hardly carry purses anymore (see above mentioned note on commuter status) I feel I need this one to stay chic.
Little Twin Stars Backpack:
What would I be, if I wasn’t honest about my 12-year-old taste in accessories? YES. I looooove me some Sanrio! Little Twin Stars man. I can’t help myself. I saw a girl wearing this backpack at Universal Studios and she told me it was Loungefly. Probs a brand for sweaty teens, but whatevs. I WANT IT SO BAD.
Sephora Set:
This set is SUCH a deal. You get several full-size products, several of which, I would love to try. It is pricey at $75 but the contents are easily worth double that.
Mac Velvet Teddy Lipstick:
I just ran out of my beloved Creme Cup by Mac and sister Megan is insisting I try this. So there you go.
Abercrombie 8 Perfume:
In keeping with the 12-year old girl theme…I smelled this perfume on a recent trip to the ol’ A&F when I was desperate to find some black distressed jeans. Total blast from the past in the best way! I really am fond of the way this smells and the fact that it makes me feel like a girl of 22 again.
Lush Snow Fairy Set:
Its no secret that I LOVE Lush and this set comes with the (new to me) Snow Fairy Body Conditioner! Oh lord this would be heavenly!!
S Factor Shampoo + Conditioner Set:
I have always been a fan of the way this line smells. But really, I just need more high-end stuff as I know my hair responds better when I don’t douse it in Pantene….
YSL Mon Paris Perfume:
Confession: I have been going in Sephora for the past few months JUST to put this perfume on. Each time I do, I get stopped on the street by people asking me what I am wearing. This perfume is sweet, feminine and packs a punch you guys.

Your Basic Christmas List

It’ just about that time of year again!

And here at the Nash household, we do things right. I’ve got my Justin Bieber Christmas CD, new Martha Stewart red and white throw, and Frozen DVD waiting patiently for that most wonderful time of the year. The only thing this basic white girl needs now is a Christmas (and b-day) list fit for a queen! And probs a Chestnut Praline Latte.

So here it is! Behold a Christmas list brimming with frivolous goods and wares any gal might like. We’ve covered the main Christmas list “food groups” if you will, for all the pyramiders as well: B&B (bath and body), clothing, shoes, jewelry and OBVS meekup. What didn’t make the list were those strange personal quirky things, which are essential to any well-rounded Christmas list. For me, these items would include a Hobbit day planner, Hall Pass the movie (a classic), a PUPPY (pleeeease Bry!) or a large wedge of Cougar Gold cheese.

I think you get the idea :).

2014 Christmas List


Last weekend, my mom and sister came for a visit. I took a half day off work Friday so we could gallivant around the city, try on mini-hats at Joann Fabrics and drink “skinny” margaritas that necessitated Splenda packets. Really, the goal was to knock a few items off the ol’ wedding to-do list and have a little fun while doing so. We scoured the city for a perfect off-the-rack blush toned bridesmaids dress for Megan. Turns out, it doesn’t exist. We pissed off the girl manning the Nordstrom Rack dressing room by bringing additional items into the stall after the initial batch. Literally, I thought she was going to kill me, even though I was SUPER smiley. GOSH. We bought discount fashions at H&M and I made friends with the cashier at Love Culture (a shop for girls 10 years my junior). I was toting my Tory Burch around all proud and sh*t and the cashier girl was like, “My Mom wants one of those Tory Burch purses.” So I guess I’m a Mom now and have NO business shopping at places like Love Culture. Anyway, here is what I got:


Every time I go to the MAC counter I inevitably end up swatching the lipsticks. You see, I am relentless in my search for beautiful lipsticks and the Cremesheen formula at MAC has me hooked. So, while Megan was trying on 73093 pairs of shoes at Nordstrom, I decided to make good use of my time by doing the same with lipstick. As I surveyed the rows of pinkish hues, a beautiful bright shade caught my eye – Sunny Seoul. Anyone else have this shade? I tried ‘er on and after showing Nan, she said, “That shade actually looks really pretty on you!” Like WTF Nan!? So all the other lip colors I wear are hideous? So of course, I bought it and I CAN’T STOP wearing it. I do notice it feathers/bleeds a bit so I may have to invest in a coordinating pencil, or that NYX Wonderpencil or something.

On me

Bryan and I are watching the 7th season of Dexter and here are my thoughts thus far… Thank GOD LaGuerta and Angel got divorced, that was one gross couple. Plus, I couldn’t stand the way LaGuerta said Angel like “Ahnhel”. Deb (Jennifer Carpenter) looks more like an alien than ever. The story is going crazy since Deb found out Dexter is a serial killer and I can’t decide if I hate that she knows. Also, the babysitter? She dresses like a common hooker but is supposed to be this good girl? I don’t get it. Also, I am dreading the series finale because I hear it is terrible. And I just realized that I have said nothing nice about this show. Oh well.

Also, I randomly sprayed this stuff on my skin at Macy’s and am now obsessed and need 40 gallons.
