Happy Holidays! Style Domination’s Christmas Wishlist List

Well, the holidays are officially right around the corner! With four weeks left until Christmas, I have already started my Christmas shopping, planned out the big Christmas dinner we host, and stocking the bar with all of our favourites to make yummy festive tipples.

Christmas is my absolute favourite time of year, just edging out Halloween for the coveted spot. I am that crazy person skipping happily through the malls, singing along to my favourite Christmas carols on repeat wondering what everyone is so cranky about!

Womp womp…

I’m also that person who normally has her holiday shopping finished well before the big day. I just hate feeling stressed leading up to the holidays and feel that when you take your time, get organized and don’t feel rushed, you are much more likely to get your loved ones presents that they will truly enjoy.

My husband asked me a few weeks ago what I’d want Santa to bring. I’ve been a pretty good girl this year and I’m hoping that Santa took notice.

Recently I was introduced to Spring, an online store which sells an endless number of unique items from great brands. Perusing their site gave me some great ideas for my own wishlist, in turn making the Big Guy’s (a.k.a Santa) job a little easier this holiday season. I’ve narrowed down my embarrassingly long Christmas list to these items that would make me really, really, REALLY happy this year!

Here goes (*crosses fingers*):

  1. A sterling silver Tiffany & Co. Bone Cuff. I’ve been good this year, but I don’t know if I’ve been “Tiffany Bone Cuff” good. Maybe Santa will take mercy on me. Pllleeeaaassse….

2.  A bottle of Creed’s Love in Black perfume. Inspired by Jacqueline Kennedy, this perfume delights with top notes of Italian violet (a favourite of mine), jasmine, cedar and cloves. A special fragrance for a special girl – me!

3. Umm…this blogger needs some new glasses. STAT. Been stalking the Warby Parker site for months looking for the perfect pair.  I found them, Santa!!

4. Santa Baby, I like makeup…specifically anything by Charlotte Tilbury.

5. I can’t drink red wine any more, Santa, so I thought I’d start wearing it.

7. More Diptyque please!

8. How about a pretty little cocktail dress for New Year’s Eve?

9. I hope my stocking is stuffed with some awesome natural cosmetics such as Moov Cosmetics Vegan, 7-free Nail Lacquer and Birchrose + Co x Nicholas Mauro Ruby Lip Balm (my new favourite).

LOVE. Smells so nice and glides right on – no waxiness and all-organic! I have “Ruby” (pale pink) – a lightly scented rose balm.

10. Santa, you know I love a great handbag. How about delivering this girl’s ultimate want? I would love you FOREVER.

      I love the holidays too! Favourite time of year! I actually desperately want that Tiffany cuff and the wine-coloured Everlane jacket. I think I will treat myself to the Creed perfume as I can’t in good conscience ask anyone to buy me a $250 bottle of perfume – lol! Thanks for reading, luv! And thanks for the congrats!

  8. November 24, 2015 / 3:21 pm

    Love the dress and the jacket!!! Oh and that cuff! Hello! That one may need to go on my list as well. Twinsies?? lol.
    Consider me inspired. Off to start online shopping now so I don’t have to stress later either! Great advice!


    • November 24, 2015 / 4:29 pm

      Good stuff, Jill! I have wanted that cuff for the better half of my life. It honestly takes a lot of willpower to not raid the Chanel bag account to buy it! Haha! Hope you are well! xo

  9. November 25, 2015 / 6:26 pm

    That list!!!! ? Fingers crossed for the bag of dreams…

    • November 28, 2015 / 12:20 am

      Ok – you have your fingers crossed, I have my fingers and toes crossed…I am getting this bag! Lol!

  10. November 25, 2015 / 9:50 pm

    Love your list, Dominique…especially the beaded dress for NYE! And if your Santa brings you your long awaited Chanel bag, then I think I need to borrow your Santa for next year! xo Gina

    • November 25, 2015 / 10:19 pm

      Awww Gina!! Here’s hoping Santa is listening! Lol! I may have to bite the bullet and order that dress. The price isn’t too bad. ??

    So much fun reading your wish list … I haven’t gotten a chance to take a breath of Love in Black yet, and now I want to. I’m searching for a new signature scent … I’ve never found the right fit since Armani discontinued Sensi years ago. What’s yours, if I could be so bold as to ask? Or do you switch off between a number of them? 🙂

    • December 9, 2015 / 12:56 pm

      Armani discontinued Sensi?? I had no idea! Do you like his relatively new fragrance Si? I wouldn’t say I have a particular signature scent, but the perfumes I wear the most often are Burberry Original and Penhaligon’s Violetta. During the summer, I switch to Bobbi Brown’s Beach and Un Jour d’Hermès. You should check out Jo Malone’s fragrances. They are pricey, but are wonderful, most are classic and original.

      • December 9, 2015 / 5:56 pm

        Si is actually my top contender right now. On me, it’s a little sweeter and a bit less complex than Sensi, but still dreamy.

        You can’t go wrong with Burberry Original, can you? 🙂 And I wasn’t familiar with Jo Malone’s fragrances, actually, but I checked them out online after your recommendation. Nordstrom apparently sells a sample set for $115 … Sounds like fun! 🙂 Maybe I’ll give it a try.
