A Christmas Gift Guide! My Favorite Things

I always love to see what things wind up on other peoples wish list around Christmas time! Whenever that question comes up "what do you want for Christmas?" I seem to draw a blank! So  I Thought it might be fun to compile my own wish list of things I already love or are on my Christmas gift guide this year so A: I can refer my husband over to and B: you can maybe get some ideas too! My Christmas gift guide includes plenty of home decor products an inordinate amount of make up because I'm a little obsessed and some fun tech and tools I am wishing for or already love!! 

This list includes affiliate links. However products I recommend below I have purchased with my own money and the reviews and suggestions are purely my own.

I've broken them up into categories to make it easier!

FOR THE HOME:

1. Cable Knit Rug

 I purchased this rug for Portlynn's nursery this spring! I aboslutley love it! it is a soft and not too white or to cream! It's brings so texture to the space and its great quality!! 

2, JUTE RUG  

I've had this rug for over a year now and I have moved it all over my house! I think its time I just buy another one because I love it so much!!!! It's so easy to decorate around and brings so much texture and warmth to a space! 

3. Rustic Chandelier

.

This chandelier had been on my wish list for quite sometime!! I hope one day it will be sitting above my kitchen table! until then a girl can dream right?! 

4. Rustic Wood Crate

I have been wanting new pillows for my family room forever! these would be so perfect for the farmhouse feel I have going on in there!! 

6.Cup Rack

These are pretty popular right now and for good reason! they have that ever popular farmhouse vibe and can be used to dress up your table scape or add an element of decor to your kitchen! I love them which is why they have made it on my Christmas wish list this year! 

PAMPER YOURSELF:

Here it comes! my makeup obsession is about to be unfurled! If you follow me on Periscope you know this girl LOVES a good lipstick! And I'm not afraid to get a little bold and daring in the lipstick department!! SO with out further ado here are my TOP favorite most used lipsticks of all time! I even have some simple neutral ones for those who aren't all about bright pink lipstick as well! You can find all the Mac shades HERE Urban Decay HERE and Milani HERE

Next we have my favorite makeup brushes! I snagged these about 2 years ago and I cannot live with out every single one of these! I have a few more in my collection but these are my holy grail brushes that I use every time I apply my makeup and make the job go that much smoother! You can buy them individually or in a pack HERE! 

Last up is a list of things I love and use regularly as a DIYer and blogger!! The miter saw is how I make and cut all the frames for my wood signs so I use it multiple times each week! The DSLR camera is a must for good pictures for my blog as well as capturing moments with my growing family and the 1.8 mm lens took my photography to a totally different level! I don't think you should invest in a DSLR camera without getting a 1.8 mm lens! The jig saw is on my wish list this year! I already have so many projects in my head so I'm hoping that perhaps there will be one waiting under the tree this year! Lastly is the Ryobi Airstrike nail gun I also use this for my shop and I love it because the technology allows me to use the nail gun without a loud and obnoxious compressor!! so I can drag it up stairs and use it whenever I need it without the bulk and noise of a compressor attached! 

That sums up my wish lists this year! I hope everyone has a very Merry Christmas and New Year!!
