Christmas Wishes 2014

Christmas Wishes 2014
Christmas Wish

I am seeing a lot of “Christmas Wishlist” posts going around. I wanted to jump on the band wagon. I hope you won’t mind. These are some times, I wish and wished (haha aka. caved and bought myself) for. If you need some ideas for the ones you love this season, this list can also help!

Zara coat / Sorel Boots / J.Crew Women’s plaid shearling scuffs / J crew necklace / Nyx Lipstick / Pottery Barn plush throw blanket / Succulent planter / C Wonder bar tool

1. Sorel Boots- $195 
I love Sorel’s. Living in Portland, OR you need a pair of utility boots that can handle cold, rain, and sometimes snow. These are so cute, yet stylish. I love the print on the inner lining. I own a pair of Sorel’s and trust me, they will keep your feet looking great and feeling good. 

2. Zara Coat- $279 
Zara is one of my favorite clothing brands, unfortunately they don’t have a store in Portland, OR. I find myself cruising around on their website often. This coat is to die for! I have been looking for a camel long coat for awhile now and this might be the perfect one. If the price tag is a little high for you here and here are similar for less money. 

3. C Wonder Stag Bottle Opener- $28 
Sometimes getting a novelty gift is one of my favorite things. I love when people find something that is “me” I never thought to buy! If you have been to my house, you know I have a bar cart and this could fit perfect. It looks like this specific item is sold out, but C Wonder has a website FILLED with items just like this to pick out for your loved one. (Also everything is still 30% off!)

4. Artificial Succulent Garden – $94
If you watch any HGTV, you will have seen commercials for They have SO many items for your household (think HomeGoods.) It’s a great way to find the perfect gift for someone who just moved into a new place, or is big into interior designs. Succulents are trendy in Portland right now, so this caught my eye. I know succulents are almost impossible to kill, I still have a great chance of doing so. I opted for an artificial one. Great addition!

5. Pottery Barn Faux Fur Throw- Now only $99! 
Here is a little story for you. Growing up my friend’s mom always had these blankets around the house and I was obsessed with them. The price always deterred me from buying one at Pottery Barn, so I bought alternatives and they never lived up. I received a Pottery Barn gift card for my birthday and I marched right in and bought the oversized throw in Grey Ombre. I AM IN LOVE. These blankets are amazing. They also look so luxurious when laid out over your bed or couch.

6. Nyx Matte Lipstick- $6 
Matte lip sticks are all the rage at the moment. I wasn’t really on board until I tried these. I love the way they give a more muted look to your lips. (Depending on your shade choice…) There are some matte formulas that leave a drying feel to the lips, but not these ones! Nyx lippies would be a great stocking stuffer or something to go along with a gift card. You can buy them at most Targets, drugstores and Ulta stores. Or on their website.

7. J.Crew Shearling Scuffs (Slippers) – $45
Slippers are a classic Christmas gift. Who doesn’t love a good pair? The pattern on these is perfect for the season! J.Crew is a good quality brand that will last! These slippers also have a rubber sole for making the trek to get the paper in the morning as well! I am loving these.

8. J. Crew Glacier Necklace – $125
Statement necklaces are here to stay. Coming from someone who usually dresses quite casual, these pieces can help dress up my outfit. J. Crew jewelry is a little on the high end, but I think they make the best ones! I love the quality and designs they offer. This piece is no exception. I think I need this one!

Hope you liked the picks! Stay tuned for a Portlandia Gift Guide coming this week as well.

    The NYX matte lip colors are one of the best mattes I've found out there. Ranks right up there with my NARS and Lipstick Queen! I'm so glad you gave a little "lip service" to a product that proves quality does NOT have to equal $$$!

    Oh I love all of that, especially those Sorel boots (always a fabulous choice) and that bottle opener is the cutest thing ever.
