VALENTINE’S DAY | WISH LIST

February 1, 2017

With Valentine’s Day just around the corner, I figured I would put together a wish list of things I would love to receive. The thing about gifts for me is that the cost is unimportant. The best gifts that I have received are those items that I desire, but don’t necessarily want to spend the money on. For example, I had been complaining to my sister about how my liquid liner always ends up smudging all over my lids no matter what brand I try (something to know about me, I don’t spend money on makeup – it’s just not my thing). Sure enough a few days later, I get a package in the mail with the exact liner she raved about – The Kat Von D Tattoo Liner. This made the best gift because it was something I wanted, but didn’t want to purchase myself.

So going back to Valentine’s Day gifts, I put together a wish list of everything I personally want. Yes, I could have put together a gift guide for a significant other, a friend, a mother, a sister, etc., but everyone else has already done that for you. So this is a gift guide for me and for anyone in your life that is like me.

As you look at the wish list items below, you will clearly see a pattern. I am a shoe, bag, and skincare (not to be mistaken for makeup) obsessed person! You can’t blame a girl for definitely knowing what departments she would like gifts from.

So if you have a significant other, a friend, a mother, a sister that has the same obsessions as I do, any of these gifts would knock their socks off and get you a little extra lovin’. I’ll bet you would never guess what I really want from the wish list….scroll below to see the answer…

So out of all these what’s at the top of my list? That Instax camera and the Baies candle (and both are about $60)!

Atsuna Matsui February 3, 2017 at 2:44 pm

Oooh I love the instax camera! To this day, I think it’s one of the best gifts you can give someone. For me, instead of caring for a monetary value gift, I prefer a sentimental gift. I can always buy expensive items and pick items I want the most, but a sentimental gift has so much more value to me since there’s a history and story behind it, which makes the gift so timeless and meaningful.

Love those red heels! And I’m a huge fan of the Laura Mercier powder. I used to use the Kat Von D tattoo liner, but you know what’s even better? Tarte! They have a super fine liner that goes on so easily. A beginner would have no trouble using it.

wanderlustts February 4, 2017 at 10:57 am

Omg it’s funny because when you were talking about how your eyeliner always smudge immediately I was going to recommend the Kat Von D tattoo liner but i see you already got that haha. Doesn’t it just work like a dream?!
And that’s actually such a good idea, usually people make these gift guide list for specific people like boyfriends/girlfriends/parents/friends, but it’s really too much variable and difference in people to make a list that suits them. As your followers we already have a great sense of your style and taste and it’s easy for us to know the people in our lives that are similar to you! So these is really a great gift guide to consider hehe. And yes omg I’ve been so into the YSL clutches lately too, I was eyeing the black one with the golden tassel for sooo long but i ended up getting a chanel wallet instead. Ahh until next time when i can finance it haha.

Ahhh, I’ve wanted that YSL tassel bag forever too but I think you were smart to go with the Chanel wallet. Chanel is just Chanel and you can’t beat that!

Great gift list, hope you get a few things off of it for Valentine’s day 🙂

Hope you had a really nice weekend 🙂

What a great list! I love seeing what skincare other people adore. Since moving to LA, I’ve gotten acne, and I didn’t have it before. I’m always looking to try out other products. I want to try the SKII products. I’ve seen them a lot, but haven’t taken the plunge, like you. So smart to have an unpurchased list of items for gift ideas. Thanks for sharing!
