Christmas Wishlist 2012

I love the Christmas season! That statement pretty much sums me up ones the -ber months roll in. I am in love with the festivities, the merry air, reunions with family and friends, holiday food, beautifully wrapped gifts, and Christmas themed outfits, among others. Christmas for me is the season when it's okay to be a little materialistic and wish for things that you'd want to enter the new year armed with. I am the type of girl who saves up the whole year just to spend it all for December. With that, let me share to you the things that I so frenziedly wish for this holiday season. 


Marc by Marc Jacobs
Glitter-finish leather mouse ballet flats

I have dreamed of these flats since I saw them on Chiara's blog. They are absolutely dreamy. I get kilig just thinking of them :">. Someday, oh someday. 

Classic City Rose Thulian

My must have trophy bag of all time. Simple and functional. Seriously, I want all the colors! 

Yorkshire Terrier

I have always wanted a small cute puppy, but my mom would always tell me I'd have no time to take care of it with school and everything, and no one would take care of it if I can't. Thus, I may have to put off having one until I can afford to have and maintain one myself. 

Paris Trip!

I am in love with this city. I have ton of travel books about Paris and I feel giddy looking through travel photos on the internet. Someday, I want to stay in Paris for a month or so just to do all the things I have and am planning on doing once I can visit the place :)


John Green Box Set
Php 3000 at Fully Booked

Hardbound editions of John Green bestsellers. It includes The Fault in Our Stars, Papertowns, An Abundance of Katherines, and Looking for Alaska. I've been wanting all four books, so this set is just perfect. I know there is a signed edition of this set, but I don't know how much it is or if it is available yet. I don't mind the unsigned copy though, it's the book that matters for me.

Uglies Box Set

I read a sample of this on my kindle and I loved the first few chapters of the first book. It made me want to read the series! This set includes the three books of the series: Uglies, Pretties, and Specials.

Book Description on Barnes and NobleThis arc of Scott Westerfeld's UGLIES trilogy follows the high-tech adventures of Tally Youngblood. As an ugly, then a pretty, and finally a special, Tally works to take down a society created to function with perfect-looking people who never have a chance to think for themselves.

Interesting right? :)

Ines de la Fressange's Parisian Chic

Oh what's not to love about thee? It represents three things I'm in love with: books, fashion and Paris!
Benefit Boxed Sets

I have never tried anything from benefit, and I have always wanted to. Now that they're available locally, I wish this is my chance to get my hands on their products! What I especially want to try out is these two box sets: How to Look the Best at Everything and Finding Mr. Bright. I love the no makeup makeup look and I am always trying to find the best way to do it. This complexion perfecter and highlighting set seems perfect for that. How about you, what is your favorite make up look and how do you achieve it? :)

Nine West
Square Gold Tone Glitter Watch

photo from

I have few watches because it's hard to find one that suits my thin wrist (my brothers and I are small-boned). When I saw this watch on Cosmo, I immediately thought it would be perfect for me. Added bonus? It glitters! :)

Trip to the beach!

Photo from

You have probably guessed by now that I love traveling and going to new places. My favorite place to go on vacation to? BEACHES. And I do believe we have great ones here in the Philippines. The best one I've probably been in is Palawan's beaches. It is heaven there and my Christmas wish is to go back!


Chapstick Candy Cane Lipbalm

Put the holiday spirit in everything, even in lipbalms! :)

Blackberry Phone Case

It seems to me that only IPhones have pretty cases, which is so unfair to me. I go to countless stalls looking for pretty cases for my BB Curve and always to no avail. I wish this Christmas I could find one. If you know a place that carries pretty BB Curve cases (like the ones above) please do tell me in the comments below and make my Christmas wish come true :) 

Etude House Nail Set

Photos from

I read about this nail set from the project vanity and I fell in love with the colors and the sparkle. I am a fan of Etude House, because they have adorable products that performs as good as it looks. Plus, their store is always a pleasure to visit. On a side note, I am so happy that glitter and sparkle seem to be this year's theme for the holidays. It enables me to justify my love for both, if only for this season. Hehe. 

Accessorize Fox Ring
This ring is so beautiful. I saw it in store and immediately fell in love with it but I didn't get it because I was saving up for my mom's birthday. I hope it's still available in stores. *fingers crossed*

There you have it! My long list of Christmas wishes from the long shots to the stocking stuffers. How about you, what's on your Christmas wishlist? :)

I hope you enjoyed this post. Comments and suggestions are always appreciated! :)


  1. Great list, Belle! A Balenciaga Classic City in Coquelicot or Rose Thulian is on my wish list for 2013 too! Hopefully I get one this coming year! :D

    Merry Xmas!

  2. Thank you! A Balenciaga is a must-have :)
