Holiday Wish List Hop + Giveaway: Holiday Wish List

Christmas is just around the corner and though I don't really celebrate it, I want to write up a fun Christmas related post.

For me, when I think of Christmas, I think of the colors red and green, candy canes, ginger bread houses, christmas lights, presents and my mums delicious baked macaroni.

What first comes to mind when you think of Christmas?

This post is apart of the Holiday Wish list Hop hosted by Gliterary Girl Media, and they have a GRAND PRIZE at the end.

My Holiday Wish List

1. The recipe to Starbucks' Toffee Nut Latte. They sell it every year here in Bahrain, during the months between November up to January or February. And every year I have to patiently wait for Starbucks to serve this particular drink because it's one my absolute favorites of their annual drinks. I am also really looking forward to trying out their other annual drinks they don't offer within this minuscule country.

2. Perfect Reindeer Sweater. We've had yearly secret santa's for two years with my sister and cousins, and every year I ask for a reindeer sweater. I never got it :(. Though I saw a couple of them at the store during that time, I didn't want to get it because it didn't feel like the right one. Red and white, white and red, or black and white, with multiple reindeers lined up horizontally on the chest of the shirt feels like the perfect reindeer sweater. And maybe a couple of snowflakes here and there.

3. Holiday Mug. I am not particular about mugs, but I've grown to enjoy their company during breakfast and tea time. Drinking from the same cup every single day for the entire year can be a hell of a lot boring. I've grown an interest for changing mugs every year for the holiday. The perfect holiday mug with the Christmas or New Year colors and is able to survive in the microwave is perfect.

4. Plain White Christmas Lights. I bought myself some colorful Christmas lights a year back and when I went to get the plain white ones this year, I wasn't able to find them at the store. "How odd" I thought. "'Tis Christmas time and proper simple Christmas lights are no where to be found! :(" they probably ran out. I want plain white ones that I can decorate my room with. The colorful ones that I got can be a bit overwhelming to the eyes sometimes.

5. Mac Christmas Palette. Every time I pass by the MAC store, there would always be a voice in my head telling me that I should get a Mac x4 Palette. But there is another voice telling me that it's too expensive and to get something cheaper, because the palette alone is quite pricy, then I'll need to buy the eye shadow separately, it's too much. Hence it being on my wish list. A neutral christmas themed mac x4 palette with the colors; Mystery, Beauty Marked, Vanilla, and Plumage

And that concludes my short wish list. Time for the giveaway.
