Christmas List 2018

1. | 2. | 3. | 4. | 5. | 6. | 7. | 8. | 9.

1. Running gear is always on my wish list! I love all Brooks apparel and these pants in ‘black/ocean wave’ are so cute + such a steal.

2. My laziness is about to show here! I have a Shark robot vacuum for our main floor and it is AMAZING! I love knowing that our floors are getting cleaned at 1 PM every day (nap time!) and it would be awesome to know the same thing was happening upstairs as well. This particular one has great reviews for carpet.

3. Again with the Brooks running apparel! I somehow only have two long sleeve running shirts so this one in black would be a great addition.

4. This cookbook looks like it has lots of yummy, low calorie recipes. Double win!

5. I adore Reese Witherspoon and I’ve wanted this since it came out. 

6. We were visiting family over Thanksgiving and this book was on the coffee table. I quickly flipped through it and was admittedly very intrigued. I’ve never been an avid watcher of their show and I’m not particularly drawn to farmhouse style, but I do love decor and this seemed to have a wealth of knowledge. 

7. I wear the same jewelry every day. My wedding ring (duh), my mom’s original wedding band (she got a new ring for an anniversary and I’ve worn it since the day I got married), my Maya Brenner ‘G’ necklace, and pearl earrings. I look the look of a few dainty bracelets, and this pearl bracelet would complement my earrings while still being simple enough for every day wear.

8. I keep seeing this dryer raved about and anything that makes styling my hair easier piques my interest.

9. Silk pillowcases are supposed to be anti-aging. Enough said!

Stocking Stuffers 2018

1. | 2. | 3. | 4. | 5. | 6. | 7. | 8. | 9.

Stocking stuffers are one of my favorite parts of Christmas shopping! I love searching for small things that let someone know you were thinking of them but aren’t going to end up in the garbage. For me, stocking doesn’t necessarily mean “cheap” as much as it is the size of the gifts. Finding stuff for my 3 year old is easy (she gets excited about anything if you call it a present!) but my husband requires substantially more thought. These are all things I’d love to find in my stocking this year. 

1. I wanted a set similar to this one last year but it sold out before I could snag it. I looked at this exact one when I was in the Northpark Nordstrom with my mom a few months ago but didn’t get it knowing I was going to put it on my Christmas list. I wear contacts and traditional eyeshadow can really irritate my eyes. I think these would be a great alternative.

2. I live in slippers. If I’m at home, there are slippers on my feet. These look cozy!

3. I was never a believer that socks mattered at all until I ran over 8 miles. Now, I’m a sock snob and these Balega ones are the only ones I’ll run in, but so far I only have two pair.

4. I’ve read amazing things about starting your day with a gratitude journal. I think this would be a great thing for me to implement in 2019!

5. I’ve also read how sweet (and hilarious!) it can be to record your kids answer to a question a day. This book would be a fun keepsake and tradition to start with Gracie.

6. I love these hair ties! They don’t crease my hair and they don’t pull.

7. These are all the rage right now and I’m all about anything that says anti-aging.

8. My favorite lipstick formula. I love any shade of pink.

9. I love these facial oil sets. I love getting them this time of year because they’re basically 2 for the price of one. They’re so moisturizing which is wonderful for my dry winter skin!
