Black Friday is only a week away, so we’ve reached the point of the year where everyone is asking: “What do you want for Christmas?” And, like every year, I’m at a loss on what to tell them. In years past I’ve put together an amazon wishlist, so the families can look at the items and purchase whatever tickles their fancy and is in their budget. However, this year all I want for Christmas is to be home, with my family.
So I sat down and started thinking about wishlists. If I were going to create my ultimate wishlist, what would it look like? What would my list have on it? So here it is, my compiled list of everything I so desperately want/need, but will just keep wishing for.
I might even convince a few of you that you want/need these things too, so I’ve included links with every picture for convenience. Just point, click, & purchase. Of course, you can always add these items to your wishlist as well, because even if your loved ones can’t afford the items, vouchers/gift cards go a long way, towards helping you snag the things you love & want, right?
The Ultimate Holiday Wish List: Fashion, Beauty, Accessories, & More
I’ve been on the hunt for a new winter coat for a while. I love my current one, but it is starting to fall apart. And on this side of the world where I walk everywhere and battle wind, rain, snow, & cold, well, that just won’t do. This color blocked coat is everything I want in a coat–sleek, stylish, and WARM.

And you really can’t do winter without the accessories, right? Here are the ones I want most because they are super soft, feel great up against the skin, and will keep you warm on those cold winter walks. You always need a hat, gloves, & a scarf!

Marks & Spencer Leather Stitch Detail Gloves (more colour choices available)
H&M Jacquard Weave Scarf with Fringe Detail
Moving out of accessories, and into my mecca — shoes & bags. No wishlist is complete without these items, right? Shoes & handbags are easy way to style up any outfit, or to transform any look from day to night with just two simple changes. Here are the items I wish I could have in my closet!
Featuring: Nine West riding boots, Nine West ankle strap pumps, a DKNY Satchel, and a Kate Spade over-the-shouder bag.

What about beauty products? I have so many on my current wish list I could write blog posts for a solid month! Here are my top six must-haves, from brushes to fragrances. No beauty collection is complete without the perfect, everyday products that will last you until next year!
Featuring: NARS blush in Orgasm, the Sephora Deluxe Brush Set, Urban Decay lipstick in F-Bomb, Urban Decay’s Naked2 eye shadow palette, Zoya’s Zenith Winter sampler collection, and Dior’s Miss Dior fragrance.

And hey, let’s not forget about the accessories, because I’m obsessed with jewelry these days. Big, chunky statement necklaces paired with delicate, feminine earrings just add charm to any and all outfits. I’ve been smitten with rose gold watches for a bit, so, of course I have to add one of those to the list!
Featuring: Betsey Johnson “Mysterious” Eye Necklace, Kate Spade Gold-Tone Bow Stud Earrings, GUESS Quartz & Rose Gold Watch, The Limited Floral Statement Necklace and Floral Stud Earrings, and Sterling Silver Diamond & Floral Bangle

Now, I won’t lie, there are plenty of items on my wish list that have nothing to do with fashion or beauty. For instance, I’ve decided that 2014 is the year I take my photography skills to a whole new level, for blogging purposes, of course. With that in mind, I’ll actually need photo editing software–something better than the free program I’ve been using for the past few months.
After much discussion with a friend whose husband is a graphic designer, I’ve added Adobe’s Photoshop Elements to my list as it does almost as much as Photoshop with a much smaller price tag; and since I’m not going into the photography business, I’m told this will do the trick!
You also know that I’m a coffee nut. Well, if you are like me and are just a sipper, then you know that your coffee gets cold QUICK — especially during the cold winter months. All of my travel coffee mugs are cute and serve their purpose, but, wouldn’t it be great if my coffee stayed warm ALL morning? Well, look no further than this stainless steel tumbler. It comes in an array of colors and two sizes and will keep your coffee warm for up to four hours–long enough for you to enjoy every single ounce WARM. It’s kind of a must for any coffee lover in your life!
Well, if I look back through this list, I certainly have a lot of wishes, don’t I? Good thing I already decided what I wanted MOST for the holidays, huh? And maybe you have a few ideas for the special people in your life now — double win!
What do YOU want most for Christmas this year? XOXO – K
