Truth be told I really don’t need anything for Christmas. I feel so grateful and content for everything I have both tangible and intangible. I am way too spoiled by my family friends and boyfriend I feel guilty even posting this because I would never want anyone to get the idea that this wish list was anything but a way to share pieces I love and think would make magnificent gifts. That being said I love when bloggers post their Christmas wish lists because it gives me a peek into their taste and the items they are loving lately. I’ve even come up with some great gift ideas for friends based off of blogger wish lists (which is obviously sort of the point right?!) So for any family and friends reading I certainly don’t expect anyone to wrap up a new set of black diamonds for me but of course if you have money you were hoping to burn and would rather send it to the fashion industry gods you can feel free to pass those purchases my way.
Black Diamond Earrings
Who doesn’t love jewelry? All diamonds are beautiful of course but lately black diamonds have really caught my eye. I would love to add a pair of simple black diamond studs to my jewelry box for everyday wear. I think these studs are a great twist on a versatile classic. These Anna Sheffield black diamond rose gold studs are a splurge but perfect mix of feminine and edgy.
Domino New Book of Style
I find beautiful homes so inspiring. Though I live in a somewhat dated, dimly lit apartment I do my best to curate pieces that make the space feel like me. The first Domino book of style was a great resource for decorating. I actually read the whole coffee table book word for word in one sitting. I’m excited to see what new inspiration the updated book brings! The domino: Your Guide to a Stylish Home book is definitely on my wish list.
I’ll admit it’s totally ridiculous to spend $190 on candles under any circumstance but this Diptyque set is SO cute. Since I just learned how to use a lighter (one of the greatest accomplishments during my 24th year of life) I have taken my candle obsession to the next level. It’s crazy how eliminating the whole begging someone to light a candle for you component aides the relaxation element so substantially. Even if 12 candles seems a little excessive I’m sure this set of three is a well deserved treat for my new found independence.
Ever since I first saw that delicate gold pendant scrawled across Carrie Bradshaw’s neck I yearned for my own nameplate. I have yet to buy into this copycat trend but when I do I will revel in basic-ness and not feel the least bit guilty about it. This customized piece feels fabulous and oh-so Carrie!
I love a chic decorated bookshelf almost as much as I love a good book. My current book shelf is a cheap built it yourself plywood piece from Amazon. I am dying for a sturdier place to hold my books but for now a quality bookshelf will have to wait. I would love a set of these gorgeous bookends to spruce up my bookshelf now and stick around when I upgrade to a better piece of furniture later.
Ultra Cozy Mittens
A good portion of my commute is spent walking outside and lately the mornings have been unbearably cold. Seriously I don’t know how those of you who live in actual cold climates do it! It takes me ten minutes to unthaw after a just checking the mail. I would love a pair of warm, fuzzy mittens to keep my hands warm. I spotted these ones in anther and I’ve been day dreaming about them ever since.
Gold Rabbit Lamp
I know what you’re thinking. Why would a 24 year old woman possibly want/need a lamp shaped like a small woodland creature? What you’re probably forgetting is that this 24 year old woman strives to live in a whimsical garden wonderland with green velvet couches, live butterflies and a chandelier with ivy and peonies adorning it. Personally, I think the gilded hare lamp fits within the vision.
Pajamas are a gift that never fails to make me smile. I love to be comfy while lounging around at home. Silky pjs in pink stripes…yes please!
What are you wishing for this Christmas? What’s your favorite gift to give?
