The holidays are right around the corner and here is my holiday wishlist! While I don’t expect anyone to purchase any of these for me, it’s more of a “what I need to save for.” I’m not really a materialistic person. I can live without these things. However, If you’re going to get me anything for the holidays, I’ll gladly appreciate money for gas or rent or food! Haha, adulting at it’s finest. Feel free to use this wishlist as a gift guide for someone in your life!

My main wish for the holidays is to spend with friends and families, and my boyfriend. I really want to go on a trip and enjoy nature. But if we’re talking about physical things, here are some things that are on my holiday wishlist.
1. Crossbody Bag
I’ve been eyeing this bag ever since I saw it featured in a YouTube video. It is the Gucci Marmont Mini in Black. I can’t remember what video or who the YouTuber was but it was like, love at first sight. I’ve been wanting a crossbody bag in black for the longest time and while I’ve never seen this bag in person, I definitely feel like this is a perfect size. I’ve been using this crossbody bag that I got from Areopostle 6 years ago and while it does the job, it’s not the cutest nor is it big enough for ANYTHING besides my car keys.
2. Skincare Products
I’ve never really taken good care of my skin. I slept in my makeup numerous of times and I rarely ever use sunscreen on my face. It wasn’t until I met my boyfriend, whom I’ve never seen anyone spends sooooo much time on their skin. He got me CeraVe Renewing SA Cream one time because he said I was going to have wrinkly legs when I’m older considering how dried my legs were. After lecturing me on how important sunscreen is, he also got me Olay moisturizer with SPF 15. Can you tell how much he cares about my skin? Haha, of course after being with him for a while, I took after him.
I’d be lying if I said I didn’t look up Kim Kardashian’s skincare routine. I’m curious about what someone who can basically afford anything would use on their face. Needless to say, most of her skincare products are ridiculously expensive. While none of these items are in her routine but here’s what’s on my wishlist: La Mer Creme De La Mer Moisturizing Cream, Estee Lauder Advanced Night Repair, La Mer The Eye Concentrate, Tata Harper Rejuvenating Serum, Dr. Dennis Gross Skincare Ferulic Acid + Retinol Triple Correction Eye Serum, Tracie Martyn International Absolute Purity Toner.
3. Workout Shoes
I normally use my flat sneakers for lifting, but I really want a pair that I can go run or hike in. I usually use my old pair of Nike cheer shoes that I got 7 years ago. SEVEN! That’s almost a decade ago. The bottoms eventually lost its grip and became smooth and slippery. I currently am dying over these Nike Roshe.
4. Workout Clothes
You know how when you get new workout clothes, it makes you want to go to the gym more often? Well, I’m pretty much obsessed with going to the gym. I workout roughly 5 times a week and I know my body needs rest days but I just want to get stronger and stronger! I have two leggings that fit my body comfortably and don’t even get me started on my sports bra. They’re the super cheap ones from Forever 21. Don’t get me wrong, they’re super cute though but they just aren’t the best for actually working out and sweating in.
5. Books Books Books
This one is a biggie on my wishlist. Growing up, my family and I never bought books. Instead, we would just rent them out at the library. I somehow grew up with that mentality to never buy books since once you finish the book, you’ll never read it again. Anyone who knows me in real life knows how obsessed I am with my planner. I color-coordinate the shit out of it. I just want to be able to own books and annotate it. Books that are about self-love and entrepreneurship are my kind of books.
