My Holiday Wishlist
The shopping event of the year is coming to a close in just a few hours but, before the clock strikes midnight, I wanted to squeeze in one last gift guide for you babes! This one is curated with what I have personally purchased over the past few days on sale, my top 5 picks from the list, and a few items that I’ve had my eye on (hint, hint: Sam).
Some of these pieces that I’ve been stalking online are at the lowest prices I’ve ever seen them at. So, if you’re like me and wait until these annual sale dates hit to treat yourself to something extra special, this one’s for you.
My Top 5 Picks:
This one makes me want to squeal, you guys! I have wanted a facial steamer for so long now. I have been opting for the extra DIY version - aka running a face towel under steaming hot water until my hands are burning and putting it onto my face while I lay on the ground for 5 minutes. I’m not entirely sure that this has actually had any impact on my skin, but whatevs. I was excited to finally find one on Amazon for under $60 with incredible reviews. I can’t wait to see the difference that it makes!
Sam and I have been discussing this piece of equipment for almost a year now and we finally decided to make the investment. If you have been following along, you probably know that Jade Nikkole Photography has been taking the majority of our professional photos for the blog. She uses this camera model and the 35mm, 50mm, and 85mm lens when we shoot together. She is unfortunately moving to Germany this upcoming month, so we knew that it would be necessary for me to upgrade from my current Nikon D7000 DSLR and lens. It is the same price now on Amazon as it was when I bought it, which is the lowest I’ve ever seen it at. So, if you’re considering taking the leap into photography or want to upgrade your current equipment, I highly recommend doing it now!
I am so, so excited to get this in the mail this week as an early gift to myself! It was a small purchase (under $12 right now), but I think it’s perfect for reframing my mindset as we finish off the year. I have wanted to get into daily journaling for sometime now, but I think I needed a bit of guidance to get started. I will definitely let you all know how I’m liking it as I get into the groove.
I have been eyeing up this perfume for months! It is the cutest pink bottle and the smell is so feminine and sweet. Sam bought me Chanel No.5 for one of our first Christmases together, and now that it is almost empty, I want to switch it up. My not-so-subtle hint: I texted him the direct link this morning when it went on sale. Oops!
If you’re obsessed with beauty like I am, you know that a silk pillowcase is a must! Up until this week, I could only find them for $50 and up which is a little steep for my liking. I knew there had to be a better option, so when the sale weekend came around I searched online and found this one with raving reviews for under $25 (also, it comes in blush pink)!
