Blogmas Day 18: My Actual Wish List

Blogmas - 2019

I have been racking my brain for the perfect gift for one of those people who already has everything and is also pretty picky about the things that they own. The thing is, if a person already has everything then they don’t needΒ anything and why am I wasting my time and energy on trying to find a gift for them. I am this person, I have most everything that I need but also, I don’t expect anyone to buy me gifts. In fact, I am terrible at receiving them – it stresses me out. This person in my life would do everyone a favor if they could be more like me and tell people to not get them anything. Now, I gift myself shit all of the time because it’s much less awkward. Here’s what I want for Christmas besides a cleaning service πŸ˜‰

TheΒ Starry Eyes to HypnotiseΒ palette is this year’s holiday palette and I cannot believe that it hasn’t sold out yet because it’s so much more appealing than last year’s holiday palette. I don’t love all of her eyeshadow palettes, I don’t think that the quality is the same sometimes, I am hoping that this one isn’t a dud.

I need a gym bag, I keep stuffing all of my clothes into my handbag which is working well enough but I don’t love putting the sweaty clothes back in there. This looks like a solid gym bag without being too huge.

These are by far my favorite gym shoe, the soles aren’t too grippy so you aren’t squeaking all over the place but so comfortable. I don’t think that they are terribly spendy at bout $40 a pair and they come in tons of colors so you can look all cute and coordinated. I just have a plain black pair now, the toe box will tear out if you have that problem which is my only complaint.

I need new pots and pans like yesterday – the ones that I have are probably 15 years old most of the teflon is torn or peeling off in areas. I’ve had a good run with them but I think it’s time to move on. Unfortunately, most of them are so worn that I don’t think that I will be able to donate them. I want a Greenlife set because they are non-stick without the teflon and look at this pretty pink set!

So, what I really want is a television to sit on my kitchen counter but apparently, these aren’t in fashion anymore. I could get a small monitor but that isn’t the same, I figure that I can hook my phone up to this device and still watch stuff while I am doing things around the apartment. I don’t own a television so I watch everything on my phone which works but I’ve dropped it, spilled stuff on it and generally just treated it poorly πŸ˜€

If you have not tried an Instant Pot, I definitely recommend. I love the taste of slow cooked meals but sometimes I don’t plan ahead, Instant Pot makes your food taste deliciously slow cooked but in a fraction of the time. I was gifted a hand me down but look at this teal one.

I think that’s it, although, I did see some really cute sweater dresses at Target the other day. I just hate shopping for clothes, nothing ever fits the way you think it’s going to. Maybe I will get some new lounge wear since I’m planning on doing a lot of lounging in the coming weeks. What are you wishing for this year? Are you a better gift giver or receiver, let me know and thanks for reading!

Blogmas Day 7: What I Actually Want for Christmas

Blogmas - 2019

I’m not big into presents, I never know what I want, I feel guilty asking for stuff and I usually just purchase gifts for myself. I miss being a kid when Barbies, craft supplies and books were the only things I was wishing for. Now that I am in my 30’s and mostly don’t believe in Santa, my wants have changed and here’s what I’m wishing for this year.

Amilya Regular

My place is always pretty clean but I’d really like a maid service to come in and deep clean everything especially all of the things that I hate cleaning like the windows and the oven. I want my bathrooms bleached from top to bottom and turned sparkling white, seriously, best gift ever.

Who enjoys having to pay for gas? I don’t get why people give cards to stores that I like because I don’t mind spending money at those stores, I don’t want to spend money on gas.

Amilya Regular

If I never had to grocery shop or cook ever again, it would be too soon. Can someone just cook my meals for me? Is that so much to ask?

Amilya Regular

I really do still love receiving books as gifts, used only please. Paying for my Audible membership would be even better πŸ˜›

This goes with the maid thing, I am fairly organized but I’d really enjoy someone coming in and organizing my life.

My skin has really been pissing me off lately, I’m sure that it’s just the change in weather but if it could knock it off, that would be great.

I would be delighted to receive any of these things, can you imagine? Sitting around, reading in my spotless apartment, eating food that I didn’t have to cook? It’s the little things πŸ˜› It seems like overall, society is shifting towards gifting experiences over stuff and I am totally on board with that. Let me know what’s on your list and thanks for reading.
