the christmas shopping season is upon us. each year that i've gotten older, my christmas list has gotten shorter. it's not because i don't want things, it's because the things i want tend to be more expensive. ya know, grown up things. not toys or clothes from the limited too [which i used to get a lot of every christmas]

so far this year, i'm only asking for three things
1. the bowl scraper spatula for my kitchen-aid mixer
2. a food processor
3. money towards an iPad
[seriously, how old do i sound?]

i always have a real christmas list and a dream christmas list - things that i would love to open on christmas morning but are just too expensive to even feel okay about asking for them. below are a few of those things:

1. Polka Rounds Clutch from Anthropologie

2. Vince Camuto Marken pumps

5. Ruffle Duvet Cover
