Merry and Bright: The Winter Wishlist Edit

The Holiday Season is in full swing! It’s time break out the cozy sweaters and enjoy that cool weather while we have it. I love reading outside this time of year, making hot chocolate with my daughter and decorating for the holidays. It’s also fun to get dressed up for a party or two. It’s hard to believe the year is almost over. Before we know it, 2017 will have snuck up on us.

Keep reading to view my favourite winter items and see what is on my wish list!


While Emma is constantly telling me which new toy, book or sparkly dress she wants for Christmas, I have definitely noted some things for myself.

As a busy professional and mom, I rely heavily on my planner. The MAMBI Happy Planner is my favourite! It’s so easy for me to keep track of all my schedules when everything is in one place. 

I have also been drooling over this macaron palette by Too Faced. Has anyone tried this one yet? It’s already sold out at many retailers. A cute dress paired with the newest IT bag by Pop & Suki are high up in my Christmas list. As well as the Beachwaver Pro Curling iron. Used exclusively at the Victoria Secret Fashion Show this year, I’ve had my eye on it for a while. I would not mind feeling and looking fabulous this season. 

Of course the bookstagrammer in me would love to try out Once Upon A Book Club in a new pair of cozy holiday themed socks! I’ve seen this box making the rounds. It’s unlike anything I’ve seen. The premise: unwrap surprises as you reach key points in the book of the month! I love this idea. Not only do you read your subscription box book rather quickly, the bookish items tie into the story as well. Sign me up!

  1. Too Faced Merry Macarons palette is lovely – I love it for a slightly shimmery but still very work appropriate look. It’s a shame it’s limited edition because unlike most of Too Faced’s limited edition palettes it’s actually good quality. I love their shadows but their holiday palettes in particular are known for being hit or miss. But they brought back Sweet Peach and I’d be lying if I didn’t say I had my eye on that! As for the Once Upon a Book Club, that tempted me enough to give it a shot for January. We shall see how it goes!

    Which wishes came true this holiday season?
