How are we all doing on this Tuesday morning? 🙂
Because it is the beginning of a new month and all of the Holidays are coming up and a new year, I can’t help but think of some things that are on my wish list. I like to make a list, current longings, things I’m lusting for at the moment. What’s good about putting together a list is that if someone asks you what you want for a gift, birthday, Christmas, etc, you won’t be sitting there going “uhhh….welll…..” Maybe that doesn’t happen to you, but I always seem to go blank when asked. Even if it’s just a gift to yourself, making a list will give you time to save up your money, or be a good reminder to look for it when you’re out shopping.
If you don’t always carry a notebook with you, there are other options for making a list that is easy for you to access. The note section on your cell phone is a good option because you can update it and make changes or erase things as you find them. One of my other favorite ways to make a lust list is to make a Pinterest board. Mine is called “Current Longings”
For the last few months I have had two things on my list that I just couldn’t get off my mind! I ended up finding them last month and I am so happy I did. I even got both pieces at the same place and for great prices!
1. The first item was a pair of leopard slip on sneakers. I had seen so many versions of them, paired with so many cute outfits all over Pinterest or on blogs that I admire. I HAD to have them! I toyed with spending $80-$100 on more expensive brands but kept waiting, hoping I’d find them for less.
Inspiration (Steve Madden, $80) Bought (Mossimo, Target, $25)
2. The second item I was drooling over was a good sized emerald or forest green handbag. I am way less obsessed with handbags than I once was, and I tend to stick to neutrals (black, brown, white) but seeing the green pop with an outfit for the Fall/Winter had me intrigued.
Inspiration (Michael Kors, $398) Bought (Merona, Target, $40)
I made a list of five things on my current Lust List. Some of these things I will be able to find at pretty decent prices, while others are what they are. A lust list can be anything from clothing, accessories, household items, books, anything you just are truly desiring. And it’s okay if your list changes as you discover new things or happen to stray away from a current trend.
1. Polaroid Pic-300 Instant Print Camera
I first saw this on Instagram and immediately had a flashback to childhood. In all honesty, I think that is why I want it most, plus who doesn’t love an instant photo? Being able to capture fun moments instantly and hang them up, send them in a letter, etc is so appealing to me. The camera develops 2.1×3.4″ color photos. The camera comes in four available colors (red, purple, black, and blue), I want the black one if you couldn’t guess. It works with PIF-300 instant film.
2. Camel Coat
This is pretty self explanatory. I think a camel coat is so classic and also completely neutral, meaning it can go with anything, dress it up, dress it down. I want one that is fitted, warm, stylish, and possibly with leather (or pleather) sleeves. I don’t have a dream one that I prefer, if I find a good one worth buying, I’ll look anywhere, including consignment stores.
3. Bellami Hair Extensions
This would definitely be a splurge for me. I don’t have the thickest hair and it has become so damaged with all the times I have colored it. I also live in area with terrible water filled with things that are not healthy for your hair. I have watched numerous YouTube videos and read reviews on how great these extensions are and I’d love to try them.
4. Love (A Misadventure) & Lullabies–Lang Leav
These are two books, the Author being Lang Leav. I first discovered her poetry via Tumblr and Pinterest. Being an avid reader and writer of poetry, I appreciate her work and think it is absolutely beautiful. I can become a hoarder of books, which is the main reason I have not yet purchased them, but they are up there on my list.
5. All Black Aviators
Aviators are my FAVORITE type of sunglasses. I rarely wear any different style, partially because not many styles fit my face very well. I have mirrored blue ones, gold and brown ones, and pink framed ones. I want a pair of all black ones for Winter, I think they would look so chic with so many looks and are less “summery” looking. I don’t usually purchase expensive sunglasses because I tend to lose/break them, but I am having trouble finding these.
What do you have on your Lust Lists for this season? Thanks for stopping by! xxo
