These Are a Few of My Favorite Things

Thursday, December 14, 2017

What's on your wish list this year? It sounds so cliche, but I really can't imagine asking for more than I have right now. Does that make sense? I'm just at a place where I feel so lucky and full, and this year I want to focus on giving to others to put a smile on their faces. I'm almost done crossing off my shopping lists, but I have had a few requests from family for my own list. I'm not making a formal one, but here are a few things I love:

+ An expensive-looking, yet inexpensive phone case. 
I'm pretty disappointed that my Rifle Paper Co. case practically shredded to pieces after six months. I usually keep my phone cases for a while and this brand has really stood the test of time in the past! However, since mine is falling apart and I should probably get a new one soon, I love the pretty marble look of this one.

+ A new fragrance.
Admittedly, I'm not a perfume person. I get headaches easily and most scents make that worse, so for every day I wear this (and have been for years!). But recently I was flipping through a Nordstrom catalog that came to the house and one of those little scented perfume ads fell out -- this one. I couldn't stop sniffing it! I even kept it out for a couple of days to see if I still liked it, and I did. So for more special occasions, I think I may have found a new fragrance winner.

+ New makeup brushes.
Mine are so old and falling apart. I'd love to start fresh with these!

+ Instant Pot. 
This is a real stretch but I wouldn't mind trying out one of these! I've been really into using the crockpot at least once a week at our house, especially during these cold months. I've heard the Instant Pot is like a crockpot on steroids. Slow cooked taste in 20 minutes? Sign me up!

+ No-show socks.
Am I the only one who willingly (and excitedly) wishes for socks every Christmas? Where do they all go during the other 11 months of the year? I could use these no-show ones for my sneakers and booties.

+ A beautiful 2018 calendar.
Oh, how I love office supplies. I would own all of the calendars and planners if I could. This one is functional and so pretty, don't you think?

PS - Here are two things I already treated myself to: a cozy new coat (in some crazy twist of events and combination of coupon codes, I got this $200 jacket for $36! It is still half off right now, though) and a book about simplifying


  1. I love my instant pot too. It is amazing. I have been using it a ton. I love those no show socks. I need to get some. I hope you have a great weekend!

    1. I’ve heard such great things about them! Hope you have a great weekend, xo
