Tis The Season...

I must be getting old because the thrill and anticipation of getting Christmas gifts have faded. Plus, I actually enjoy buying things for other people now! Naturally, this frustrates those who genuinely like me and actually want to buy me things during the holidays(love y'all!). I've just gotten to the point in my life where I'm happy to be in good health after having:

  • The H1N1 virus
  • a mental breakdown of sorts which led to...
  • (stress)hives
  • ongoing situations with my family that have pretty much forced me to give up everything that I've busted my ass for.
Honestly, Christmas gifts are the last thing on my mind and the main thing that I do want won't fit under the tree...and if it can, then we have a problem. ...Unless it's in the form of a check, of course.

Another thing that I've been told is that I'm hard to shop for because I'm really picky selective about everything and I buy all of the "would be gifts" for myself throughout the year...which is true.

So with that being said, I'll make it easy this year. Although I don't like making lists of things for people to buy for me because I'm stubbornly independent and Christmas isn't all about me(but my birthday is--February 7, mark your calendars!)I'll make some suggestions with a few of my favorite things/stores.
  1. Sephora
  2. Express
  3. The Limited
  4. Gap
  5. Chocbite
  6. Gucci by Gucci for Women
  7. Nina by Nina Ricci
  8. Fossil
  9. Amazon
  10. Forever21
  11. Ca$h/Gift Cards
There. Go crazy.
