Friends, the final countdown is here! Christmas is 10 DAYS AWAY.

I don’t know about you, but I have so much fun finding Christmas presents for friends and family that I always forget to put my own list together. Who in their right mind has to be reminded to do that?! Me, apparently…

So here is a real life list of the things on my list this year. Yes… you’ll see that the full Harry Potter book series is on there. And I’m not ashamed. I’ve been hunting for the perfect large hoop earrings, and am so excited to have come across designer Julie Vos! Now I have to choose between the Chloe and Crescent styles. Which do you think?! I’m also a huge beauty product hoarder, and am excited to try this Smashbox color correcting primer since I’ve been having some redness lately!

In case you’ve procrastinated on a few presents, wanted to give you a heads up that Nordstrom is offering free delivery by Christmas eve! Here is a full list of their shipping deadlines.

Let me know what you’ve got on your list this year… I’m always up for adding a few more items to mine! :)

Love from Texas,


Join in on the fun!

    I think I have the most boring list: mainly cookbooks (Southern living in particular, I sort of collect them) & cookware. I have way to many clothes & shoes. I love Smashbox primer though & would recommend using the gel primer before make up & use the water primer after you put your make up on (excluding mascara & eyeliner).

  2. I also have some beauty products on my list: MAC Lipsticks, Kat Von D shade and light contour kit, Sigma brushes, OTK boots, some shoes for work, a tote for work, RayBan sunglasses! Just some things that are high quality that I know I would be able to use a lot!

  5. I completed my Harry Potter collection at a local book sale.. I got the last book that I needed in brand new condition for only $7! That’s the set that I’ve had since I was little, but I do want a brand new box set just because :)
