I can believe that it is only one week until Christmas! I absolutely love the holidays, especially when it comes to spending time with your loved ones and enjoying each other’s company.Throughout the year, I love saving money in order to buy both myself and other’s Christmas gifts. I just love the feeling of going to the store and looking for that perfect gift. Today, I am showing you my dream holiday wish-list that all pertain to my fashion/beauty blog. Enjoy!
1. Digital Single-Lens Reflex Camera (DSLR)
This is an object that every single professional blogger should have in their collection. Sadly, I only own SLR cameras which do not give the same quality of pictures that I hope for. For Christmas, my two dream camera or either a Nikon D5100 with a 18-55 mm lens or a Canon EOS Rebel T3 12.2 MP with a 18-55 mm lens.
2. A Smartphone
Now, while a DSLR and laptop are both essential tools for a fashion or beauty blogger, the camera can be much too large in order to bring at all times. Also, there may be times when a blogger has to post from a location in which they do not have this item. A smart phone with 4G is perfect, as not only is the camera superior to other cell phones, however you can use the internet as you please. My dream smart phone is a Samsung Galaxy 4S with 4G.
1. Lorac PRO Palette
The Lorac PRO Palette, which retails for $42.00 at Ulta, is the perfect mix of shimmering neutrals and metallic smokey colors. I love the texture of the shadows from my Lorac Unzipped palette, so I feel that this palette would be the perfect addition to my growing collection.
2. Real Techniques by Samantha Chapman Makeup Brushes
I have to go out and say that I love Samantha Chapman of Pixiwoo! I never thought she could be more perfect until she became one of the first Youtube Beauty gurus to go mogul and create her own line of affordable makeup brushes. I own only a dome shadow brush from the colleciton, and would love to own the Real Techniques Core Collection brushes. The photo below came here.
1.BEBE Contrast Trim Trench Coat
For the winter months, I am absolutely in love on concentrating on minimalism on my wardrobe while using exaggerated outerwear to make any look glamourous (think Gossip Girl). The BEBE Contrast Trim Trench coat, which retails for $139.00 at Bebe Stores, is a beautiful trench coat that adds drama to any look.
2. Fashion Gift Cards to Affordable Clothing Stores
Now, I love receiving gift cards to different stores during the holidays. It’s a thoughtful gift that does not need to be wrapped in an extravagant package. However, a $10 gift card to a store like White House Black Market won’t buy you anything significant sadly. By giving gift cards for affordable stores, you are able to gain a larger assortment of items. Some of my top stores are Forever 21, Agaci, and Payless.
