My Christmas Wishlist! :)

Thirteen days until Christmas! ;)

It's raining at the moment -- warm blanket + hot chocolate + blogging = perfect!

The other day, my sister asked me what I wanted for Christmas.
I honestly couldn't think of anything I wanted. I guess it's mainly because there's really nothing I am in dire need of... but now that I've had some time to think about it, I actually came up with a couple of things to put on my wishlist.

Most of them may be more "want" than "need" and some are a bit expensive, but hey, it's just a list, right? ;)

1. SPANX In-Power Line Super Higher Power, $38 -

This is something I've wanted for quite some time now.
I don't have the flattest stomach, so I think it would be fantastic to have this!

I can only imagine how well clothes would look with this on -- so sleek and smooth. :)

Here is a "before and after" photo from

Spanx In-Power Line Super Higher Power

Which SPANX product would you recommend?

2. Michael Kors watch -

Oversized Rose Gold Watch ($250), Madison Glitz Chronograph Watch ($225), Pilot Watch ($225), or Runway Time Teller Watch ($225)

I've wanted a Michael Kors watch for years now!
Michael Kors has amazing watches (and that is why I have four up there, haha!).

The one I really really really wanted though is this one:

...but, I don't know if it's still for sale.
It's not on the Michael Kors website.
Do you know if they still sell it?

3. iPhone 4s -

I looooove my iPhone and I think it would be great to have this.
Is Apple coming up with a newer iPhone model?

4. Nikon 1 Camera -

Nikon 1 Camera design

I'm not that into photography and I won't have much use for a DSLR, but I really like the Nikon 1 camera!
That would mean better photos for my blog! ;)
(A new laptop would be awesome too, haha!)

5. Lancome Tresor Midnight Rose -

My sister said this smells great!

6. Shopping -

I don't think we can ever go wrong with a good ol' shopping spree.
A gift card to Forever 21 is enough to make me happy. ;)

Wow, now that I actually took some time to think of things to put on my wishlist post, I can't stop, haha!
I also want a stand-mixer and some baking tools, but I think that should be on a separate post. ;)

What's on your Christmas wishlist?

  29. This is an amazing Christmas list! I would also love to get an iPhone 4s! I'm thinking of asking my parents to give me a DSLR for my high school graduation, but the Nikon 1 looks fantastic too!

    --Olivia :)

  30. Olivia-- thanks, i'm glad you liked it! i think that's a good present to ask from your parents -- one of my close friends asked her parents for a dslr for her birthday/graduation. ;)

  31. Mimi, this is so funny, I think we have similar taste :) I love the oversized Michael Kors rose gold watch, but the mustard yellow one below is super cute too if it's for sale already. I think you made a good choice on those Spanx too. I actually like how high they go up because they don't cut into the waist that way. hehe. I hope you get a few of the items on your wishlist.


  32. Dale-- awww, i think that's so cool we have similar taste! and i agree, it's great that the spanx goes high and it seems like it will really cover all areas we need covered. ;)

  33. I kinda want everything on this list too! I think it would be would be amazing to get spanx for christmas. I have some tight dresses, and I could use a little smoothing here and there. ;)

    Love, Belle

  34. Belle-- i have a skirt that really hugs my hips, and i have a feeling it would look great with spanx on. ;)

  35. Beautiful wish list! I hope Santa treats you with all what you want! You totally should get Iphone 4S. I'm loving it and Siri rocks;)



  36. Alexandra-- aww, thanks! i really do hope santa gives me at least one thing from my list. ;) and i heard siri really is amazing, haha!
