December 2016 Wishlist

December 2016 Wishlist

This post contains affiliate links, which if you choose to purchase from, Diary of a Toronto Girl receives a commission. As always, I only ever endorse products I truly believe in.

I have always felt weird sending people wishlists. I personally like the idea of being surprised when I open gifts or surprising people when they open their gifts. For reasons I won’t get into, I won’t be giving or receiving gifts this Christmas, so I thought I’d share my wishlist with you so you could have some ideas for any last minute gifts you might be getting. These are all actually things I’d planned on getting on Black Friday or Cyber Monday, but were things that were either sold out or things I was iffy about purchasing.

Fashion Wishlist

Silence + Noise Velvet Carnation Surplice Romper in Light Grey: I think this romper is so, so, so pretty, but I didn’t end up getting it on Cyber Monday because I don’t have anywhere to wear it to. I actually buy way too many dresses and fancy outfits for someone who doesn’t go out very often.

Kimchi Blue Vanessa Velvet Fit + Flare Romper in Maroon: I already have a few velvet maroon pieces in my closet, but you can never have too many.

Kimchi Blue Victoria Sweetheart Shimmer Lace Romper in Lavender: I walked into the UO store recently and completely fell in love with it. It looks so much more beautiful in person than online!

Beauty Wishlist

Smashbox Always On Matte Liquid Lipstick in Out Loud: Jenn Im wore this in either one of her videos or Instagram photos, but it looked so gorgeous on her that I wanted it for myself. It’s always sold out!

T3 Whirl Trio Interchangeable Styling Wand: I don’t know if I’ve mentioned this on my blog before, but I’m a huge fan of Claire Marshall – she’s been my role model for several years now. She used this styling wand in one of her hair tutorials, and I’ve wanted it ever since.

BH Cosmetics 88 Neutral Eighty-Eight Color Eyeshadow Palette: I’ve been seeing BH Cosmetics’ eyeshadow palettes everywhere, and I wanted to see what the hype was all about, so I ordered two palettes on Cyber Monday. Unfortunately the 88 Neutral palette was sold out at the time, and it restocked a few days after I made my order.

These are just a few things that are on my wishlist right now. Hopefully it gave you some inspiration if you’re purchasing some last minute gifts or if you’re gifting something to yourself!
