Laura’s 2017 Holiday Wishlist

November 30, 2017

It’s that time of the year again. When everyone keeps asking you what you want for Christmas. In my opinion, it’s a love-hate question. Like, yea, I have some ideas…but I don’t really want to give them to you because then it just seems weird asking for a list of gifts. But then again, you don’t give them a wishlist, and they gift you something you don’t love…and you have to ask them for the receipt!!!! Now, that’s the worst! Either way, it’s a catch 22.

If you’re racking your brain for ideas, don’t worry! I’m sharing my wishlist with you this year. It’s funny how the lists have changed over the years. I used to sit with the huge JCPenney catalog (remember those??) on my lap and circle all the toys I wanted. Then, as I got older, I started asking for the entire Abercrombie and Fitch catalog (yep, they had one! And c’mon, I know I wasn’t the only one). Now, I’m like a real-life adult; asking for salt & pepper shakers, and Christmas dishes! Haha, ok, first off, that was last year. Secondly, I think I’ve upped my game this time…maybe. 😉

MY LOOK:  Top  //  Jeans (similar)  //  Heels  //  York Necklace

My Holiday Wishlist

1. Crate & Barrel Copper Kitchen Utensils

Ok, I know I said that my list wasn’t going to be lame, but I just had to squeeze this one in. I’d love for all my cooking utensils to match, and this is the best way I know possible. Start over with a set. Seriously, these copper handles are perfection. They also come in gold too!

2. Fawn Design Gray

While I thought my LV bag was be a great idea for a diaper bag 2 years ago…it wasn’t the best for my back. So, I’m keeping that sucker for my girls nights out, and trading it in for a backpack! This ones easy on the shoulders, and super adorable! Plus, it’s leather, so you know it’ll last. I chose gray as a gender neutral color, and something that would transition easily with my wardrobe-ha, did you guess I was going to say that?

3. 520 New Balance Black/Copper

I live and breath in workout clothes. But, I also like to be comfy, but stylish. These shoes are the perfect lifestyle shoe that carries themselves well from jeans to sweats. And they’re nothing to be ashamed of! The color goes with everything, and the hint of metallic totally won me over.  

4. Vineyard Vines Relaxed Shep Shirt

Anything that covers the butt, and is comfy, is a winner in my book. Plus, this holiday color is perfect for the winter.

5. Beautycounter Multi-Masker Set

I’ve been using this skincare line for 2 years now, and while I enjoy the difference with lines/wrinkles that my my morning and night regimens have given me, I still feel like my skin doesn’t scream wow! Haha does anyone? I realized, I wasn’t really doing anything outside of my anti-aging creams to polish this face up! Hence, this mask set. Each one does something different, but overall, the reviews are miraculous, and I’ll be on my way to brighter skin in no time!

6. Felt Letter Board

How cute are these boards? They can literally speak for any situation, and double as adorable home decor. I love something that I can keep up  year round, just by switching up the image or wording. Everyone needs this on their list!

7. Spanx Faux Leather Leggings

I heart a good pair of leggings, but these bad boys just seem like such a statement. They can be paired with sweatshirts, flannels, cardigans…anything! I think they’d be really cute with some heels and a fun top, or converse and that pullover below in #7. Hopefully I get them! I had a hard time deciding between the Moto version too. Would both be overkill??


I hope this inspires you to make a wishlist of your own. “Adult” gifts, or not, everyone deserves to be treated with something they love this holiday 🙂 Merry merry!  xoxo, Laura
