Angela's Christmas Wish List plus a GIVEAWAY!

I get so excited to share gifts I love with others! These are actual items on my Wish List this year. I am known for my practical picks (as you will see by desire for gym clothes).  However, I've also been known to request a couple of "splurge" items.  Let me know what your favorite item is on my list and I will personally select a random reader to receive an Essie Sweet Mini 4 Pack (pictured below):

Nordstrom
Essie Sweet Mini 4 Pack
Colors:
Lollipop, Rock Candy and Mint Candy Apple nail & 3-Way Glaze nail treatment
Apple
$69.99 (Apple is offering free shipping on this item)

I adore my iPad, and this little accessory will be such a great addition to my Apple family!


Saks
Sale Price $ 82.50


This is perfect for those who do not want to deal with the "fixed" Apple iPad case, which has to be removed when using the Apple Dock station.

Lucy
$98.00

$88.00


$28.00
Burberry
$450.00

So chic and versatile. This was the "splurge gift" on my list this year!

Layla Grace
$ 52.00


This is an amazing product! You design your own case to your taste. With three different font options and countless colors to choose from, you can't go wrong. This is an exceptional gift for the Preppy person in your life! Did I mention you can order cases for the following products: iPhone 3G & 4G, iPod Touch, Blackberry Bold and Curve!

Sephora
Orgasm Lust Lip and Cheek Set
$30.00
I have yet to meet a Fashionista who can't wear this shade!

Bobbi Brown
$75.00


I'm a loyal Bobbi Brown user. I rarely stray from her products. This little pallet is perfect for girls on the go!

Bath and Body Works
$19.50



My ALL-time favorite scent is Creamy Nutmeg. I stock up when they run their promotion,  2 for $20. These also make terrific Hostess gifts!

Michael Kors
$ 318.00

This bag looks chic, but doesn't carry the hefty price tag. By the appearance, I imagine the inspiration for this handbag came from the Herm├Ęs Birkin and the quilting of Chanel.

Saving the Best for Last:

Neiman Marcus
$1,450


We have so many people to buy for (and to be honest, I would rather give, than receive) so the Yurman bracelet is most defintely a wish...wishful thinking!

Happy Holidays!!!
Angela

Papertake Weekly - sketch week!

Happy Tuesday everyone!! I've got to tell you I am sooooo excited!!! I bought tickets for my daughter and grandson to come spend Christmas with us this year. They'll be here for two full weeks and that's the only Christmas present I want! They get here in two weeks and it won't get here fast enough for me.

So anyway, with it being Tuesday, that means it's time for a new challenge at Papertake Weekly, and this week it's sketch week. We're being sponsored by the fabulous Simon Says Stamp!



And here's what I came up with for the sketch



I chose to use #3039 Longing Tilda along with #457 Noel both from the amzing Diana over at Magnolia-licious. They're stamped with Memento Tuxedo black ink and colored with Copic Sketch markers. I used oval Nesties to cut out the word Noel. Cardstock is Bazzill, PP is Nitwit Collections, and the hearts were cut using my Cricut Expression.



I truly wish I could remember who's blog I recently saw the buttons and attached string on so I could give credit where credit is due. If you know, please email me so I can link to them! The ribbon is May Arts silk from Stamp and Create. That's it for me today! Please be sure and visit Papertake Weekly to see what the rest of the fabulous design team has created, and then we'd love it if you'd grab your paper and glue and play along with us! Thanks for stopping by to see me today, and hope to see you back again soon! Hugs!
