Christmas Wish List 2011 + Giveaway Winner!

First up, check out this giveaway for an adorable eternity scarf giveaway on my blog HERE!


Check out THIS giveaway I'm sponsoring/giving away somethingggg! AND For every person who enters the giveaway Hollie will donate 50 cents to a charity that provides clean drinking water to developing nations! If that is the only reason you kind of want to enter, do it! It is worth your time!


Now for the feature presentation.

I love shopping and being a consumer. I really do. 
Now that you are aware (if you weren't already here) I will share some fun finds (via my Pinterest) that may also be on a wish list (for Christmas or whenever). 
I have not decided on exact products though...just the ideas! 
Trust me, I do my research and looking around!
And just throwing this out there, heck no, I will not be getting everything haha.
Like 2 things? A girl can wish.

Michael Kors rose gold watch from Nordstrom! Or in gold?
I feel like gold with go with more but rose gold is so fun! Only problem is wedding rings clash!
But in black (need black)
These riding boots by Enzo Angiolini from Nordstrom!
Brown or the more reddish brown ones? Or maybe a different brand? I don't know...
Like the skirt. I'm desiring a grey, tan, or any other color pencil skirt that is not black (already got a great black one!)
Snow boots! I'm beginning to realize that after years of living in a snowy climate that these may be essential. They would be great for when I shovel the snow, trek around in the mountains, you know all the freaking time. 
 These are Sorel 'Tivoli' Waterproof Boots from Nordstrom.
The Hunger Games books!
I need to get in on these especially since the first movie comes out in March and everyone is raving over them!
Chunky scarves (brown please) & big sweaters and tights and boots. And yes love this.
Gym membership to 24 Fitness (maybe the 2 year one which makes it super cheap a month thanks to Costco?)
Leg warmers to wear with my boots
In no particular order here are some things I've got my eye out for:
*Italicized words are maybe a teensy bit more wanted but in the end I decided I wanted to italicize all so use judgement.

+ Planner: a year ago, I almost got a Franklin Planner -you know you are a hard-core planner when you get one of those, but I passed on the opportunity. My mom gets me one every year haha! We are for sure planner people!
+ The Hunger Games books
+ Gym membership to 24 Hour Fitness
+ DSLR camera, cord to transfer photos to your computer, charger, cute bag to store/protect

{Beauty} Nail Polish: OPI nail polish "Have a Tempura Tantrum" (nude), facials/massages

+ Blazers: Navy, brown, grey (anything but black)
+ Pencil Skirt: grey, any color but black or denim (already have)
+ Brown scarf
+ Gloves: black, brown
+ Skinny Jeans: Black
+ Michael Kors rose gold watch (above) or in normal gold?! Maybe normal...would go with more?
+ Leg warmers to go with my boots! I'm kicking myself over getting rid of some I used to wear to dance as they are very in right now!
+ Cardigan: Black long sleeved one
+ Boots: brown, black
+ Shoes: Gold Sperrys, Toms?, cute SNOW BOOTS!
+ Pea Coat: Black
+ A sparkly sequined top or cardigan or skirt! They are so festive and fun!
+ Denim long-sleeve shirt
+ Tights (mustard yellow) & black cable knit (mine have holes in them!)- Problem is, I'm kind of tall so I always get holes in the toes...so I need to find a strong tall good brand of tights out there! Any suggestions?

{For the home} Blinds, Curtains, Home Decor, Window well covers, Bath mats/towels, Baskets, Church artwork (temples/pictures of Christ), Frames for our future gallery wall or to make a chalkboard mirror

{Katinka} Water/food dishes, Heated bed/pad/cushion

{Kevin} Talk to him. Basically guns, bow and arrows, a gun safe,  NO clothes at all, guy things you know :)

Any recommendations for brands on any of these?
