Happy Holidays! Today’s post is a good ole Beauty & Lifestyle Holiday Wishlist of what I asked for under the Christmas tree. This post is holiday themed but I didn’t partake in Blogmas this year. I have mixed thoughts on blogging marathon style events because I feel like a lot of the articles I read during Blogtober and Blogmas are short and lack depth. That’s not to say that every post I’ve read has been like this, but I notice a lot of posts without any photos or headers that really keep me engaged.
I have a couple holiday posts up and my photos have become very festive looking but I’m not churning out 24 Christmas themed posts in a row, it’s too much. With that being said, I’d love to share with you what’s on my Holiday Wishlist for 2018!
2018 Holiday Wishlist
Morphe 35M Boss Mood Artistry Palette
I was shopping for gifts in the mall and I saw a wonderful thing… we’re getting a Morphe store this spring! YAS! I’ve been wanting to try Morphe eyeshadows for a long time (I even featured them in my 5 brands I wish were sold at Sephora way back when). Sephora has limited Morphe products available but I love that we’ll be getting a full range of products soon.
The 35M Boss Mood Artistry Palette is gorgeous, unlike most Morphe palettes it actually looks different from the others to me. I often look at their palettes and struggle to see the difference but this one is distinctly different from most eyeshadows in my collection.
Update: I now have a full review of the Morphe 35M palette on my blog!
Bite Beauty Four little Bites Lipstick Set
This set is something I’m giving away as part of an instagram challenge, I recently picked up my Sephora birthday gift and loved the formula of these lipsticks. I would love this set for myself so I’ve nicely asked Santa for it with the stipulation “It’s even on sale!” written next to it.
Essential Oil Diffuser
In my Winter Fabfitfun box this year I received some essential oils from Way of Will but I have no real way to use them. I’ve asked for a mini diffuser so I can set it up next to my bed when I sleep. I have a sweet orange oil and a eucalyptus oil to diffuse.
Skyward By Brandon Sanderson
I love Brandon Sanderson’s books. I’m about to start Oathbringer on my Audible account and I’ve read all of the mistborn books. Mistborn was the first series in a very long time that I had a tough time putting down. Skyward is the first book in his new sci-fy series and I’m sure it’s going to be great.
Kirby Star Allies & Octopath Travleller for Nintendo Switch
I feel annoyed when I read gift guides that are titled “for her” and “for him” when the guy’s list is the one that interests me more. I rarely see any sort of video game related suggestions for girls and I think this is a huge oversight. As a female let me tell you…I play computer and console games all the time.
My husband got me a Nintendo Switch for my birthday last month and I love it so much! I can’t put down the new Zelda game. As a kid I loved Kirby 64 so I’d love to revisit Kirby in the new Kirby Star Allies Game.
Octopath Traveller has been getting pretty good reviews, it’s one of those games I love where your choices affect the outcome of the game. If you’ve played Life is strange you’ll know what I mean (which is also a great game by the way).
My house gets really cold so cozy slippers are must! We have hardwood upstairs and carpet in the bedrooms so whenever I’m walking around the living room my feet get cold. My bootie slippers fell apart earlier this year so I’m hoping there’s a pair under the tree with my name on it.
Ruffled Pie Dish
I love baking pies but I don’t have a proper pie dish. I got the Duchess Bake Shop cookbook for Christmas about two years ago at it is the bomb! Duchess is a bakery here in Edmonton and every recipe turns out exactly how you would buy the baked goods in store. Their pie dough recipe is awesome but I don’t have a proper pie dish so my pie shells normally sink. I asked for one of these ruffled pie dishes on my holiday wishlist for 2017 but I didn’t get one for Christmas (my gifts were lovely though) so I’m hoping I get aone this year so I can make another apple pie.
David’s Tea Pumpkin Chai & Silk Dragon Jasmine Tea
Pumpkin Chai is my favourite tea but unfortunately it’s seasonal. I always ask for a restock of my tin for my birthday or for Christmas to get me through the rest of the year. This year I also discovered Silk Dragon Jasmine which is a really nice green tea. Any of you David’s Tea addicts out there?
What’s on your 2018 Holiday Wishlist?
I usually have a ton of beauty related products on my holiday wishlist but this year I’m leaning towards lifestyle gifts. I was finally able to start treating myself more this year because my husband started working full time after being in school for a few years. It was a huge weight off my shoulders and I started feeling (slightly) less guilty for spending more money on myself. I’ve already bought the holiday releases that I really wanted, like the Too Faced Gingerbread Girl Lipstick and the Too Faced Sweet Smell of Christmas Set. I hope you guys have a lovely Christmas and maybe get something off your wishlist!
