Dream Christmas Wishlist 2014

Dream Christmas Wishlist 2014

Dream Christmas Wishlist 2014 by rainbowflash94 

     So many of my favorite bloggers have recently been posting Christmas gift guides on their blogs! I have really enjoyed looking at a lot of their favorite gifting picks (my favorite of these types of posts so far has been from Caitlin of Southern Curls and Pearls). While I do like the idea of sharing a gifting guide, I take Christmas gift shopping pretty seriously, and I don't want to share what I'm getting for my friends and family on my blog in case they should read the post! ;-) So I figured instead I would share my "dream Christmas list" for this year. I certainly don't expect to be getting most of the things on this list,  but hey, a girl can dream right?! 

     Ever since I bought my Tory Burch riding boots this summer during the Nordstrom sale, I have been obsessing over all things Tory Burch. Tory makes the most beautiful purses, and the one that I linked would be just perfect for the cooler months! I am also in love with the Miller sandals. (If I make enough money babysitting next semester then I might seriously consider buying a pair!) 

      For beauty items, Mally is my favorite high-end make-up brand. My mom often buys me Mally products for my birthday or Christmas since their make-up is a bit pricey, and I would love to receive some Mally mascara especially for Christmas this year! And I am also asking for this Remington T-Studio Pearl curling wand. I already have this wand in the smaller size and I love it! I love it so much that I want to try the one in the next size up to try out looser curls now that my hair is finally growing out again. 

     I have been in love with the classic J. Crew pearl twisted necklace for quite some time. And these cute little Kate Spade stud earrings keep popping up in my Pinterest feed lately, and they have grown on me a lot! I love them in this deep blue color. 

     The last two items are perfect for adding a little color into your Christmas. It's no secret that I'm a big Lilly Pulitzer fan, but I actually don't own any of the popular Elsa tops, so I would love to receive my first Elsa top for Christmas, especially since that would be the perfect fashion piece to add some Lilly style to my outfits during the cooler months! And I added a Vera Bradley totebag because that is the type of bag that I use for school, and the one that I currently have has almost reached it's limit... I have had it since my senior year of high school and it is definitely showing signs of age! 

     Lastly, I am asking for a DSLR camera for Christmas. (This is the item that I think I have the most chance of receiving. ;-) ) I think that it's seriously time to take the next step with my blog, and I am actually taking a photojournalism class for my major next semester, so this would be the perfect time to make that kind of investment! 

     As I said earlier though, I want to stress that this is a dream Christmas list! I certainly don't expect to receive most of the things on this list. If I were to just get a DSLR camera I would be so excited!! As cliche as this sometimes sounds, it is important to remember in this season that celebrates retail that Jesus is still truly the reason for the season. :-) 

     But now I want to ask y'all, what is on your dream Christmas list? Or what is on your "realistic" Christmas list? Haha!

  1. I'm running for a DSLR on Black Friday this year but my dream list includes - 360 pearls, a new vacuum, kate spade ipad sleeve, and the Loren Hope gunmetal cuff!! Great list!! I might have to add a couple of these to mine ;)

  2. My list this year revolves around Lululemon! Although I technically only asked for two things they both carry halfway hefty price tags (whoops!). If you are looking for a new curling wand definitely check out the NuMe wands as well - I swear by my 32mm.
