All I Want For Christmas...

So at my job we have been getting Christmas items in the last couple of weeks.
 I know, I know. "Christmas comes earlier and earlier each year." But never-the-less it has me thinking of the holidays. My mom and I were talking about what to get my dad and she asked what I wanted. I thought it could be fun to share with you. So here is All I Want for Christmas...

1) A Few of My Favorite Things by Too Faced
This palette comes with 20 perfect-for-the-holidays shadows, a mini Better Than Sex mascara, 4 cheek colors, a Lip Injections Color Bomb! in Bee Sting. Along with all that cheerful goodness all of this was hand picked by Jerrod Blandino, Too Faced Co-founder and Creative Director. Of course You'll need a place to store all of these goodies so it comes with a clutch designed by Mary McDonald. Better Than Sex mascara is my go to. It keeps up with or perhaps surpasses the blogged about, talked about, read about, got to tweet about after trying out, They're Real by Benefit, a tall order. The Color Bomb! lip color is so good I used it while doing my friends makeup for her wedding, a day you do not mess around on. This is a Sephora Exclusive and retails for $56.

2) Gretchen by Dr. Martens
These boots speak for themselves...can't you hear them? No...just me then, all right. These chic yet fun healed boots are beautiful. The detail is lovely and if you have owned a pair of Dr. Martens then you probably know that they will most likely outlast your car and once broken in are comfort to the max. (No but seriously.)
They Retail for $160. 








3) Daisy by Marc Jacobs
Daisy by Marc Jacobs is my favorite perfume and has been since I was 16 (now 22). I feel more confident and in charge when I wear this and perhaps that has to do with my the fact that at this time in my life I felt those things very strongly. It wraps you in a warm elegant feeling with notes of Strawberry, Violet Leaves, Ruby Red Grapefruit, Gardenia, Violet Petals, Jasmine Petals, Musk, Vanilla, White Woods, leaving me feeling glam and powerful. This retails between $22. - $89.








4) Nars Blushes
Nars is known for their blush, most popularly for the shade Orgasm. But my collection of blushes is lacking a candy sort of pink without shimmer. I think Gaiety will be perfect for that winter flush that looks like Jack Frost himself has applied it. Retails for $29.










5) BlackMilk Leggings



                                                   I've been hearing loads of buzz about these and keep seeing more and more people wearing BlackMilk everything. Obviously I need to get in on the action because...well I want to have oil slick, metallic, mermaid scale leggings and that is good enough reasoning. They're not made until you order them (made in Australia). The mermaid obsession is real!! We all know this and that is that. Retailing at $80.

















I hope you have enjoyed my Christmas list and I'd love to know what's on yours,
so let me know in the comments what you're hoping to unwrap this holiday season. Have you added anything from my list to your own? Please share this if you liked it! And I will be doing a review on any and all of the things I get blessed with this Christmas. Lots of Love!
