December 21… and I still have a few gifts to buy! This year, like so many others, I havent stopped to think about what I should ask the big man (Santa, not Bryan) to bring! Still, a girl can put in a last minute request, I assume. Here’s what I’m hoping for from the North Pole:
If you caught up with me back in the Spring, you’ll know that Clinique and I have had a major reconnection (more on my facial care later). I’ve become slightly addicted to their makeup in stick form, and have an eye stick in a beautiful neutral called Lots o’ Latte, but this one? Mighty Moss? It looks like it could add a little (or a lotta) drama. Bonus: It’s stocking stuffer size!
I stumbled upon Pickwick and Company locally at Mahonia, and found that Bella Dolce has a heavy, beautiful romantic air to it, and Oakmoss smells almost exactly like the lingering scent in the bathroom after my guy gets out of the shower. Leather, Tobacco, and Moss has a lovely, woodsy aroma. Hopefully, it’ll be my next addition!
If Santa sees on his list that I’ve been VERY good this year, perhaps he’ll find it in his heart to gift a Burberry scarf. The Cashmere is large, a little formal, and a little traditional, and the navy fox fur is a sweet party piece that would go well with LBDs of any kind!
Admittedly, as much of a book-lover as I am, I only read Hemingway’s The Old Man and the Sea for the first time this year, and immediately fell in love with his style, his easy flow. While it may take a while for me to make my way through his collection, these gorgeous, jade-bound volumes would certainly look pretty on my shelf in the meantime.
Speaking of things to go on my bookshelf, the idea of layering art over the front of the bookcase dividers (like a client had done this summer) makes me just swoon! For my basement library/family room/entertainment area/boozy lady cave shelves, the #4 and #7 abstracts from Beth Winterburn would bring some playful life! Bonus: At only $19.50 each, Santa can afford both!
Cheers, sweet readers! If you’re travelling over the next few days, stay safe, and have a very Merry Christmas!
