Christmas Wish List

Oh, December, I'm so happy to see you again!  How could I not be when everything is decorated for Christmas AND it's supposed to be close to 80 degrees here in Charleston today?!  During the Thanksgiving weekend, I started compiling my wish list for Santa this year.  I decided to go with a few little themes and mixed in some practical with some dream gifts.  I really love putting together these lists, even just to look back on from year to year.  Here are my 2013 and 2014 lists.  Things haven't changed too much in two years!
Decorating our bedroom: We recently purchased this fantastic duvet from IKEA and some cranberry-colored sheets from Target.  I hope to make the room feel more home-y, and my plan is to change the sheet color each season, so I loved these silver and gray-scale accents: striped bookends, mid-century flared vasesilver globe, botanical jewelry trees, and tall Mercury glass bottle vase.

Blogging goals: I really want to improve my photography next year, and I promised myself I will take a photography class in 2016.  With some help from Allison, I finally narrowed it down: 18-135 mm and 24-105 mm.

Pretty things: Helloooo, dream gifts.  I've recently become enamored with rose gold, and just love this sculpted crescent Tacori ring and Cooper Rose Gold-tone Tortoise watch. Plus, no blogger can have too much Kendra Scott: Skylar green earrings and Dee black pearl earrings.

Comfort: While getting more into makeup and fashion was fun this year, I am still someone who loves to be comfortable.  These monogrammed Converses with mTd would be adorable, and everyone needs some new Christmas jammies: J. Crew flannel pants and set.
  • What's on your Christmas list this year?
  • Did you buy anything fun yesterday during Cyber Monday?
Hint hint: make sure you check back tomorrow for another post with a few things to add to your own Christmas list this year.  There will be a little something for y'all, too!

Your bedroom picks have inspired me to add some similar items to my wish list...the bedroom is probably the least decorated room in our apartment and could use a little flair!
