My Christmas Wishlist 2018 | BLOGMAS DAY 2

Christmas When You Aren’t a Kid Anymore is Kinda Weird

I’m 20, and I’m at the point in my life where the list of things I want to buy my family & friends is longer than the list of things I want for myself. And furthermore, most of the things I want can’t be bought. It’s a lot different than when I was a little kid. I would circle nearly every cool toy in the Toys “R” Us catalog, hoping Santa would bring me all 8 of the kitchen play sets I circled, because I ~definitely~ needed ALL of them.

Instead of looking at it the way when I was like 9 years-old which was “These are all the things I want Santa PLEAASSEE hook me up”, I’ve been looking at my Christmas list now as a “this would be nice to have, but I’m still content with with what I already own” list.

We Shouldn’t Feel Guilty for Wanting Things

It’s been a really valuable lesson for me as I’ve grown up to understand that I’m able to both want things and also be perfectly happy with the things I already have. It’s like enabling myself to have the best of both worlds.

Plus, the people in your life who would like to & are able to get you a gift for Christmas/the holidays sometimes need ideas on what the heck you want.

So, if you need any ideas of what to ask for, I got you. Here’s my Christmas Wishlist of things I think it would be awesome to have!

My “It Would Be Nice to Have This” Christmas List

Clothes, so I can attempt to be fashionable

I always want clothes. Right now I mostly want some more ~trendy~ things since I’m trying to not dress like a 14 year old any more. Here are some things I’ve been eyeballing lately that I think are v cute.

Basically my goal is to look like my Pinterest board that I have for Fall/Winter Fashion, so far I’m like 43% of the way there.

  • that Sherpa jacket
  • more long sleeved tees, I already have this one in 3 colors from Garage and I love them! Long sleeves are my new go-to for going to college classes with it being winter now.
  • chunky sweaters
  • one of those dope paperboy looking hats, bc it’s a whole vibe
  • bras & underwear from Aerie. Love their brand and clothes.
  • black over the knee boots, to match my tan ones, of course
  • more skirts, I’m really feeling the whole skirt + tights + boots look this winter instead of only leggings.

Boring tech stuff (just kidding I love tech stuff)

    • I’ve been getting much more into taking pictures and filming lately, therefore my camera dies pretty quickly, unfortunately. So, additional batteries so I can keep taking pictures for longer would be perfect.
  • [amazon_textlink asin=’B01868HEKQ’ text=’Memory card’ template=’ProductLink’ store=’AKIAJUCN5NJUOY4TCVCA’ marketplace=’US’ link_id=”](s) for my camera
    • Like with the batteries, my memory cards I already have fill up pretty quickly, and some more space for content would be cool.
  • [amazon_textlink asin=’B07H461TBQ’ text=’Airpods ‘ template=’ProductLink’ store=’AKIAJUCN5NJUOY4TCVCA’ marketplace=’US’ link_id=’39675c85-f6a2-11e8-81e5-23220b9bcfad’]because I’d love to have some wireless earbuds
  • iPhone 8+, I’m currently still flexing my iPhone 6s that I’ve had since I was a junior in hs! However, I’m now a junior in college, so I think I’d like to update my phone asap rocky.
  • A [amazon_textlink asin=’B00UY1YTGG’ text=’Popsocket’ template=’ProductLink’ store=’AKIAJUCN5NJUOY4TCVCA’ marketplace=’US’ link_id=’4027e090-f6a2-11e8-8b56-191f706aa503′], I’ve made it a pretty long time without buying into them but lowkey I want one pretty badly now.
  • A new [amazon_textlink asin=’B01LZ2MX91′ text=’Nintendo 2DS’ template=’ProductLink’ store=’AKIAJUCN5NJUOY4TCVCA’ marketplace=’US’ link_id=’318c19be-f6a2-11e8-9410-85e399f49b06′] because mine broke somehow 🙂 love that for me 🙂

What do you want for Christmas this year?

Those are pretty much all the things I can think of that I’d like to have. Mostly, when it comes down to it tho, I’m content with what I have. And if I could only pick a few things to get this year, I’d pick a new iPhone 8+ and some more clothes to wear since most of my shirts are tube tops (if you know, you know.)

okay bye see you tomorrow for Day 3 🙂

❤, Teresa
