I’ve Been Good Santa!

by Shelly


I’m in quite the festive mood this year!  The house and the tree were fully decorated by the last week in November.  I’ve also managed to knock out quite a bit of my gift shopping already. That is definitely a first! Well, as much as I love to give…oh how I do love to receive as well!  Here is what I am hoping Santa will bring me this year.

To be honest I haven’t been following the Smitten Kitchen blog, but I have pinned quite a few recipes of hers over on Pinterest!  I just know the pictures in this cookbook are going to be amazing and I am excited to try out some fun new dishes.

Ina, Ina, Ina!  I cannot get enough of this woman.  Everything I’ve ever made from her is wonderful, and fairly easy (for me at least). Of course I also need this cookbook to complete my Barefoot Contessa library.

Every year I get a new planner to keep me on track.  For some reason I not only need to enter appointments in my iPhone, but it helps me to also write things down. After seeing  this planner on Instagram, I knew it was just the thing I needed to keep me organized next year.

While visiting family over the Thanksgiving holiday, my awesome cousin in law Rhyan was sweet enough to sit down with me for a while and give me a much needed makeup tutorial and brush up. After she used this cool egg makeup blender, I noticed my makeup looked more natural on my skin.  I also like the fact that it’s washable, so I can reuse it over and over again.

This serum is AWESOME! I started using this about a year ago and have really noticed the difference it has made on my skin.  It’s toned down the redness, helped with my dryness and given me overall brighter skintone. I’m down to drops in my bottle at home, so a new supply would be nice.

My current right hand ring is bent to hell.  I’m really loving the delicate ring look. This set fits the bill and is definitely a great price!

I’ve been searching for a classic watch that will go with everything.  This Timex is just the look I was hoping to find. Clean, timeless and goes with everything.

We went to a fun Christmas party thrown by some of our best friends Saturday night.  When we got home I took off my shoes as soon as we came in the door. Well, the new puppy thought they were yummy. When I found them the next morning she had eaten the back of one of them. I actually think these black heels are a bit nicer than my old pair AND they’re 50% off right now!

After picking up this magazine a few times in the grocery store I realized that it wasn’t the stuffy, old person’s food mag that I thought it would be. I’m totally obsessed with it now!

Hello beautiful!  This bracelet would just be so pretty for nights out or even for a bit of a more glam daytime look. Definitely a look that will never go out of style.

I’m all about getting comfy after hours.  This hoodie would be the perfect thing to zip up, get cozy and watch our new fav show Breaking Bad in.

Are you hoping for something particular to find it’s way under your tree?
