Christmas + Birthday Wishlist


I am a list maker. I have said it many times before, and I will continue to do so. One of my most favorite times of the year to make lists is this one we are in! I make lists of gift ideas for others, projects, things I want to do, and sometimes even a wishlist for myself :)

These are floating around everywhere in blogland at the moment, but of course, each one is as unique as the person putting it together! My friend showed me an awesome site called Wishlistr that allows you to make an online wishlist that you can share with others. I love that you have the ability to add a link and photo for each item. It especially makes a visual person like me happy! So, I thought I would share with you all some things that are on my Christmas and birthday (It is January 4th!) list, and also show you the one I made on Wishlistr.

1. Grey Ruffled Sweater - I'm not so familiar with the site Sheinside, but I fell in love with this sweater!
-----
2. Someday, Someday, Maybe by Lauren Graham - Lauren Graham is one of my favorite actresses, so
of course I want to give her novel a shot. I am also a sucker for anything Sarah Dessen esque, so this seems to be right up my alley.
-----
3. Terrarium Notepad - It's a terrarium notepad. Need I say more?
-----
4. Colorblock Pouch - I think that this pouch is super cute to throw my little items in and then toss into my backpack or purse when I'm on the go. Plus I love the color.
-----
5. Ugg Cozy II Slippers - With wood floors all throughout my house, things can get pretty chilly. I have the Target version of these that are pretty similar, but sometimes you get what you pay for, you know? They haven't held up so well, and I think that now I am older, I am responsible enough (haha) to take care of the real thing.
-----
6. Canon 5D Mark III - It is a whishlist after all, so what would it be without something ridiculous? One day!
-----
7. TOMs Metallic Gold Burlap Classics - I love the comfort of Toms, but the ones that I currently have are the crocheted version, which are more for the warmer months. These would provide the warmth my other ones don't, while also offering a neutral tone with a metallic-y twist.
-----
8. Whitney English Day Designer - This planner has caused quite the buzz in blogland, and after reading reviews and other bloggers posts about it, I can see why. It has all the functional elements that meet my needs, and provides great structure to carry out a motivated outlook all year. This one is definitely high on my list!
-----
9. Madewell Transport Tote - I have been eyeing this bag for a year now, but have been hesitant to purchase it because of the price tag. I see it around quite often and I just swoon. It is so lovely and goes with literally everything. Also, seems to be good quality and is definitely a timeless piece, so the price just may be worth it.
-----
10. Chanel No. 5 - I don't wear perfume often, but that is mostly because I still just simply have the Vera Wang 'Princess' fragrance I got for Christmas in 7th grade. I first tried this timeless scent out last year and have been longing for it ever since. It may sound like a cliche scent, but there is a reason it has been around for nearly 100 years!
-----
11. Portable External Hard Drive - Boring, but this is something I desperately need. My poor little MacBook (which I love dearly) has too many photos on it clogging up space. I definitely need a separate space to keep my photos, especially if I plan on taking many more next year.

I hope you enjoyed this list and that it gave you ideas for your own list or for gifts to get others! What's on your list this year?

I really want to give that Lauren Graham novel a shot. Keep forgetting it exists, though! I also keep... not reading. /o\

Reading is a struggle for me too. I love it, but I often get distracted with other things and just forget that I could be diving into a new book. Sigh. Hopefully I can read the Lauren Graham book over winter break!
