christmas wishlist - The Dainty Squid

christmas wishlist

Wednesday, December 18, 2013

1 // I'm still dreaming of this Ciate advent calendar.
2 // Never enough striped dresses in my closet! I love this one, the length is perfect.
3 // There are always books on my wishlist. Three near the top of my list are Nine Years Under, As Nature Made Him, and Masters of Sex.
4 // Totally guilty of wanting a Wii U. Basically my relationship with gaming systems is that I will follow Zelda anywhere with the exception of handheld systems aaaand word on the street (yep, I just said that) is there will be a new Zelda game for the Wii U coming late 2014. Also, I for some unknown reason never played Wind Waker so I'm dying to play it for Wii U. Not to mention Super Mario 3D World, Super Mario Bros U., and Rayman Legends look so great!
5 // This Diana lens for DSLR cameras looks like it would be a lot of fun
6 // I had one of these on my birthday wishlist and I'm still dreaming of owning one of these beautiful models. Although, anything tooth related under the Christmas tree would have me jumping for joy.
7 // I like lipstick on everyone but myself. It just looks weird and out of place on me but I'd really like to play with different colors on my lips. I recently tried out some lip stain and I'm hooked. It's nothing like wearing lipstick and I feel totally comfortable with it on. I basically want to try every brand and color out there now. This one looks really pretty.
8 // This 2014 stitch the star calendar by Heather Lins is basically the coolest thing ever.
9 // I'd really like a pair of nice a pair of black boots. The main thing I'm looking for? That they have treads. I have a pair that are great other than the fact that they're smooth on the bottom and I never quite realized how dangerous that was until I slipped in the store. These ones from Target are super cute.
10 // I'm clearly on a patch kick. All my coats have at least a few on them but I can always find room to squeeze another on, especially one this awesome.
11 // Winter is bubble bath season for me. I like bubble baths all year long but during the winter it's almost guaranteed I'm taking at least a couple a week. Earlier this week I used up the last of my Lush stash.
12 // I have loved this shower curtain for oh so long.

What are you hoping Santa will bring you this year?
xoxo

  1. Great list! I want the Holga and Diana lenses for my Niko. The video possibilities are endless! :)
    I went crazy at my local Lush store getting a gift for a friend...then my mom...then myself! I am in love with their Ultra Bland face cleanser and now, I want to try their pretty bath bombs. I don't take bubble baths too often but after being in the store, I think I'm ready for a few!

  5. I know what you mean about looking for good treads on boots. I have (or had) a pair of 1940's paratrooper jump boots and adored them until they finally fell apart, but they were completely slick on the bottom! Seems dangerous for someone jumping out a planes, but ah well...

  6. Down with Toon Link! I'm not saying don't play WWHD, but I mean, no one would blame you. Do yourself a favor and follow Zelda to A Link Between Worlds. I'm not one for most handheld Zeldas, either, but this one blew me away, and it was instantly one of my favorites. The ending is the most beautiful, touching ending to any Zelda, ever.

  7. The new Zelda game is probably what is going to land us a Wii U as well :) My husband bought me the new "Legendary Gold" 3DS Zelda bundle for my birthday and it's awesome. I'm a sucker for handheld games though.

  15. I have a copy of "As nature made him" if it's still on your list. Good read but heartbreaking.
