xmas list of an adult woman.

Xmas is almost here! This is the Xmas list of an adult woman.

My mom and dad are very kind and good parents and luckily show us that they care in many, many different and diverse and dynamic ways but one of those ways is fun Xmas gifts! So my mom asked us all for Xmas lists. And the only ones that got back to her with an Xmas list were my future brother in law and me. Because we aren’t FOOLS.

I love getting gifts. I won’t deny it. I also get gifts for others and put a lot of thought into them because it’s the right thing to do, but I wouldn’t say I get as much enjoyment out of giving gifts as I get out of receiving them. That’s just the way it is.

Without further adieu, here is the Xmas list of an adult woman, as I wrote it to my mom.

i need 4 of these frames in black PLEASEEE

Link to frames.

8x8 frame from Amazon

I got some awesome prints from Brooklyn Snobs like…5 months ago, and they need to go in frames. There are 4 prints so that is why I “need” 4 frames. Didn’t mean to be a bitch by saying, “I NEED this.”

I love these bras, any of the black fabrics in this style in size small

Bralettes for adult woman

I love these FREAKING bras and they are so damn expensive unless you buy the pattern and materials to SEW YOUR OWN which I do not feel like doing right now. Sorry.

one or both of these little sets

Drunk elephant Rise + Glow set from Sephora

Drunk Elephant Night Bright set from Sephora

I want to possess Drunk Elephant products so badly and I hope “Santa” understands that. Also I said “one” was an option but I really do want both.

OMG! i think in small

Hot Pink Puffer Coat from Target!

Anything pink immediately draws me to it, like a moth to the flame. And I must possess it.

I want to try this place, $45 for 3 classes new student special

YAS Y7 YASSSSS. This is the only yoga I’m on board with. It’s fast and there is fun music.

I want to try this one too! Starter 10 day class for $35

Link to 305 Fitness.

Ive heard tales of this fun dance class with a DJ and I GOTTA GO.

Any bra or pants from here that is mostly black and a size small, pants should be high waisted please and I like the strappier bras

Link to Carbon38 SALE.

Carbon38 sale page, filtered for items that are black.

Workout clothes. Clothes for working out. Carbon38 is bananas expensive but they have good sales sometimes. When I started working out a few years ago I really liked wearing crazy colored pants and bras but I don’t like those as much anymore so I’m trying to phase them out and replace them with black. Because it’s the New York way. Don’t worry, I will still wear brightly colored and patterned regular clothes. Just not gym clothes.


Link to SERUMS from Glossier.

Glossier super glow and super bounce serums

Suddenly I need serums. Like legitimately need them. My face is red all the time, and dry, and getting wrinkly. I need to try as many as possible until I find ones that work. Don’t judge me. This is the Xmas list of an adult woman, after all.

In size 8

Vans with zebra print

Like a good Jersey City girl I will never be over Vans and I need them in my life. I wore my current leopard ones into the ground so I need a refresh. And I haven’t seen zebra on any other gal. If I see them on you I’ll kick your ass. JK let’s have a zebra Vans party.

If you still need any ideas…these in black size 8 😍😍😍

Black Frye booties

This was a more recent addendum to the list and the note at the bottom is to my mom, not you. They’re sold out in size 8 now so FINGERS CROSSED one of those sales was SANTA.

Small desk for working from home (in Black Oak)

Link to desk from Target.

Gray colored desk

I have A LOT of space in my bedroom now and I want to get a desk! I can use it to work from home for actual work or to work on this very blog. I usually sit on the floor and use my coffee table for my computers in either situation. Although I enjoy floor-sitting greatly I think a desk would probably be better for my body.

Chair for desk (this one or similar, but want a pink-ish velvet one in this style comfortable for sitting and working)

Link to pink velvet chair from Urban Outfitters.

Pink velvet chair

Omg. I want this chair. It’s just perf. Please pray to Xmas for me.

also books!

Link to The Witches Are Coming by Lindy West.

I cannot wait to read this. I love and want and need everything that Lindy West has ever written. She is a goddess of words and thoughts and ideas. Bow down to her or face your own ignorance with shame.

Link to Little Weirds by Jenny Slate.

Jenny Slate is a cute little wacky lady that moves around in a funny way and she is also sharp and smart. She has a fun to follow instagram and always wears fashunz I would like to wear. One time a boy told me I looked like a combo of Jenny Slate and Zoe Deschanel and it was a huge compliment although I don’t really believe it. I don’t think I look like either of them but I DO think that this particular boy didn’t have very good communication skills and was trying to convey that I was “quirky” and also some kind of manic pixie dream girl. Which is a problem. I am a real person and not a literary device. Anyway I wanna read this book.

blue light blocking glasses in la_nola color please

I already got these. Don’t be jealous. Santa sent them to my office because I was getting headaches. Thaaaaanks Santa.

Pink "Brat" long sleeve t-shirt from Rachel Antonoff

I love Rachel Antonoff. One time I received a photo of her on my birthday and she said “Happy Birthday!” It was a big moment. A guy I went on a few dates with sent it to me and was like “I went to high school with Rachel and I ran into her on the street and I told her it was your bday!” And I think that was very kind. She’s from New Jersey so of course she is good people…GREAT PEOPLE. Her stuff is very expensive but so fun, so I have a few of the t-shirts. One day I will be able to buy the real clothes. ONE DAY YOU GUYS. EVEN SANTA CAN’T AFFORD THEM RIGHT NOW THOUGH OK?!

ban.do never does anything I don’t like. I think you know that already.

Cute little yellow mini waffle maker from Urban Outfitters

Frankly this is ridiculous but like…I def want this. I don’t have a waffle maker and this would be THE waffle maker for my small kitchen.

That’s the Xmas list of an adult woman. Now you know what to get me! JK Santa will get this stuff for me don’t you even dare.

What’s on your list? What are you most excited about potentially receiving? On the other hand, if you prefer giving, what are you most excited to give? Do you do presents at all or just chill and eat foods? Eating holiday foods is great too but we’ll talk about that another time, as it warrants a whole separate post.
