My 2014 Christmas Wishlist

Have I been naughty or nice? That’s up for debate. But I sure deserve more than coal this Christmas! Here’s this year’s kind of grown-up and mostly pragmatic wishlist:

1 – Personalized tag necklaces (on a 20″ chain, please) from Bohindi with Joey’s and my initials. The local brand closest to Bohindi would be Hobbylane by Cez with customized jewelry that’s just as pretty and dainty.

2 – No show socks. Am I a house elf? Who asks for socks for Christmas, right???

3 – Naked2 palette. Asking for gifts like it’s 2011………………..

I only started using eye shadow regularly recently and I’m kind of bored of the Meet Matt(e) Nude palette that I have. I want something shimmery for days I want to S H I N E.

4 – White ceramic planters for my baby plants. I’m done with succulents because THEY ALL DIED (except for one echeveria that thrived when we stopped paying attention to it) and have moved on to spiky cacti.

5 – Duvet covers. Great for snuggling and Instagramming :P

6 – Wooden hangers. I’m cleaning out my closet for the second time this year and I’m pretty set on simplifying everything. I want a more mature wardrobe in neutral colors! To match this change, it’s time to say bye to icky plastic hangers. LOOK HOW CLASSY THEY LOOK versus those hangers I’ve had for over a decade. Daiso sells 3-pack wooden hangers for PHP88 but you can get them for PHP12 a piece at Divisoria.

Other things I would like: white bedding set (my bed is a queen) // pashminas for the office // Forever Ugly tote bags // panties (I’m an M at Cotton On and La Senza) // iPhone 5C cases // set of 3 large Moleskine Ruled Cahier Journals in Kraft Brown or Pebble Gray // Stabilo point 88 25-color set.

Would anyone be interested in a gift guide? Or is it too late for that?

    Wooden hangers <3

    I'll switch to more mature stuff aka the good looking stuff when I have my own place. For now, I'm sticking to the ugly plastic hangers. BTW, I love receiving panties as gifts, too! haha

    I’m also trying to simplify my closet. I have too much, and I don’t wear cutesy stuff anymore.

    I actually got a bunch of black hangers because my old workplace was gonna throw them out. I was like “Nooo” and took them home, haha! Dumpster diving chic right hurr.

    Yes! Post a gift guide please! I suck in the gift-giving department! Also I need white sheets too for the sole purpose of having better instagram photos. Hihi
