Kate Spade Charm Magazine iPhone case, $40
The free one Apple gave me broke a few months ago and the iPhone has been naked while I've been indecisive about what case to buy next. Kate Spade knows how to make one darn adorable case.
Starbucks Falala ceramic travel mug, $11
This mug solves my travel mug conundrums; I hate the plastic tumblers because the plastic always makes the coffee taste weird and you can not put them in the microwave, so I'm stuck drinking my lukewarm coffee. This mug is essentially a regular coffee mug with a removable plastic lid - so I can reheat my coffee to my hearts content.
And did you notice how cute and even non-christmasy those falalas look? I can totally get away with using this year round.
Marc by Marc Jacobs Petal to the Metal bag, $438
This is one of those fantasy items, but I've been smitten with this bag for ages. Great shape, great size, and cute little birdie details!
ONA Roma camera bag insert, $59
In the past I'd searched and searched for the perfect camera bag that was an elegant marriage of style and affordability. In the end all the bags worth having weren't really in my budget. This little insert solves that dilemma. Now every one of my bags can be a camera bag.
Dara Ettinger Lark Ring, $115
I love a statement ring. I love the color and the huge amethyst. As a bonus, Shopbop states this ring was made in the USA. I heard on the news that if everyone spent $64 on Christmas gifts made in America, that we could create 200,000 jobs. So not only would I get an awesome ring, but someone else would get a job. Win-Win.
DV by Dolce Vita Dahlia Chunky Pump, $74
Even though I already own a pair of red pumps, they are patent Mary Janes and I can not wear them without garnering several Dorothy comments. I do love my little MJs, but I think it might be time for a more grown-up red pump. No one will be going to see the Wizard in these suede platforms.
A vacation to someplace with palm trees.
I feel like I haven't been on a proper vacation in ages, and warmer climates would be a welcome change. (Even though it's been unseasonably warm!)
What are you wishing for this December?
P.S. This awesome clock I picked up at my church fair for $1 this weekend is broken. It was functioning when I took it home, but 20 minutes after I hung it on my wall it just stopped. I put in a fresh battery and coerced it into movement, only for it to stop again in an hour.
A little searching lead me to a near identical clock from Target, and of the two reviews, one of the reviewers described a similar problem.
I really love the clock though! Can battery clocks be fixed? Would it be worth the effort/money?
