6 Things I’m Wishing for This Holiday Season; Expectations vs Reality

BY LaWanna Thomas • NOV 14, 2018


Well, it’s all a blur, seems like the kids just went back to school from summer break. Halloween was last week, Thanksgiving is next week and Christmas is in 42 days. The holiday shopping season started weeks ago and while as a kid I looked forward to the days of looking through thick catalogs and magazines to make my wish list; as an adult, the thrill is gone. Let’s be clear, the thrill of having someone else pay for it is gone but not the wish list itself; if that makes sense. I believe I had about 3 or 4 wish list by the time I passed my Christmas list on to my mother. The last list was a number of things that made the cut. Or basically,  so I could know which items she would actually get me.

Fast forward, I’m a mom and now I get the list instead of giving it. What a blower but I’ve decided that I can share in the Christmas wish list writing festivities to! Nothing much has changed from then to now because I would always add a couple of high-end products to my list that I know I wasn’t going to get; but it’s called a wish list right? As a kid, it’s almost as if you leave reality to be in the moment of crafting the wish list. You are engaged in it so much that you can almost reach out to touch and feel them. The magic of the somewhat fairy tail list was fun then and exciting now. The more things change, the more they stay the same.

Take a ride with me as I glide through the items on my wish list this holiday season, you will find both items that will be easily placed under the tree for me as well as my luxury want list.



Fendi Kan I Small FF-Embossed Crossbody Bag

 Now this, cute and small, FF-embossed calf leather cross body bag is a winter must have. I love being hands free and with this handbag you can throw on a cute outfit with a moto leather jacket and keep it it moving. Crossbody bags are definitely a fashion staple for any day of the week. 


Channel shoes

 Navy Blue & Red Suede Calfskin Sneakers

 Now, I'm a tee shirt and jeans kind of girl so these Chanel Sneakers are right up my alley! Look at those beautiful fall/winter burgundy and blue colors. Great for running errands and not only are they cute, they look comfy to. 

 Yass Girl Women’s Slim Fit letter Print T-Shirt


Yass girl says it all for the unapologetic woman who's determined to never apologize for the fire in her. A t-shirt worthy of becoming a wardrobe essential: comfortable, form-fitting, and a stylish base for any outfit. Definitely at the top of my wish list. 



Faux Shearling Biker Jacket

 Ever heard the old saying that "time repeats itself"? It's a fact, it does. I would love to take a picture from the 90's era and rock this AVEC LES FILLES Faux Shearling Biker Jacket


Boom Hiker Boot with Genuine Calf Hair



 The combat Steve Madden Boom Hiker Boot was made for a man but finessed for a woman. Boots are a match made in heave when paired with a pair of distressed jeans or leggings. Oh Santa baby, put a pair up under the Christmas tree for me. 

Santorini Leaner Mirror

Do you see the detail on this Santorini leaner mirror? Just dreamy and elegant. I'm picturing a space for this as I add this decorative detailed silver  mirror to my Christmas wish list. Think Santa has room on his sleigh for this?
