wish wish wish

holiday wishes

My family doesn't really celebrate the holidays that much. I may not be expecting any gifts this year, but that doesn't stop me from wanting a few (or a lot) of things. Some items are just part of my winter essentials (I don't know when I started to have "essentials") and others I wish were part of my life. Ryan Gosling is still on my wish list. He will ALWAYS be on my wish list.

1| After this long semester I am ready for some recreational reading. 1Q84 by Haruki Murakami and The Marriage Plot by Jeffrey Eugenides are at the top of my list. I'm hoping that I'll read at least five books this winter break.
2| I really don't need anymore lipstick. Last time I counted I was at 9 different tubes of lipstick. What I really want to do is use more of what I already have. Oh, and I wouldn't mind trying out some purple lipstick.
3| I want cigarette pants. They fall into my love for 60s fashion, help me with my new found love in pants, and look good in sweaters.
4| I need to keep my lips smooth.
5| I already have a grey pullover, which I wear almost everyday. This is just a reminder of how great it is.
6| Asos really needs to stop making me fall in love with their clothes. I'm almost glad that they don't have a location States side, otherwise I'd be in debt. This dress with the peter pan collar, short length, and wonderful burnt red color is calling me. I'm resisting that call for now.
7| Berets and scarves are my best friends right now. My hair has been looking a mess and I thank my collection, okay I only have three, of berets for hiding that. Scarves keep me warm.
8| I am forever on the look out for simple black flats. I don't like embellishments on black flats. I just want them to be practical like this pair from Repetto. I also want them to be affordable unlike this pair from Repetto. I know I just said I don't want embellishments on black flats, but these cat flats are TOOGOOD. I guess I mean embellishments such as rhinestones, flowers, and bows. These shoes by Charlotte Olympia are awesome. I don't know what else to say.
9| I need an amplifier for my record player. I want to listen to my records and sing along. I need some Miriam Makeba in my vinyl life.
10| I want Ryan Gosling. I just do and I am not ashamed.
