1. I am a sucker for a good bag, but normally I go for very graphic ones. Bags that are bright, patterned, and unique. I’ve decided that it’s high time I get a ‘big girl’ purse. Not that I don’t still love all my quirky satchels, I do. But I love this one by Fossil. I “tried it on” in the store and it’s a great shape, size and fits under my arm nicely. It’s also got that pattern flair…but on the inside.

2. Yeah, yeah, I already have an iPhone. But I call it the dinosaur of iPhones because it’s a first generation. And anyone who is familiar with Apple stuff, everything gets outdated pretty much within 6 months after buying it. It’s super annoying but I have accepted that’s how they roll. Needless to say, I am still on The Edge network and it is like being on an old school dial up modem if I want to look something up online and there’s no Wi-Fi to access. My contract is up for renewal so I can get a “deal” on one of the newer models. My friend said I should wait till next summer for the next generation. If you know me, you know patience is not one of my qualities. Therefore, I’d love to have one of these iPhone gift cards that Apple is pushing to upgrade.

3. Stocking stuffer! I was recently at my friend’s house in Cleveland and she had this Mentha hand soap by C.O. Bigelow. I have tried the uber tingly Mentha chapstick (whew, that’s strong) but had never seen the hand soap (that store is dangerous for me so I stay away). It smells great and is very refreshing on your hands.

4. This one is already happening, I just need to pull the trigger on my renewal. I have posted before about Uppercase Magazine, but it is truly one of the best magazines to come into my life. It’s like Janine Vangool personally came knocking on my door and said, “Carrie, what would YOU like to see in a magazine?” and then just delivered it to my doorstep every three months. Thanks for starting this, Janine!

5. I am on the hunt for a proper winter coat. Not necessarily this one (I just picked it because of its pretty silhouette and have no clue if it’s even warm). The problem is, I have some requirements that make it all but impossible. Here’s what I want: interesting silhouette (see above), made out of a material that won’t easily pill or attract every fuzzball within a 10-foot radius, able to pass for dressy or casual, unique in color or pattern but still go with everything, flattering, affordable and SUPER WARM. Oh, is that all? Yep.

BECK’S WISH LIST.

I’m pretty sure he’d be happy with: a few stuffed animals he can destroy, helping me tear the paper off my presents, a peanut butter-filled bone, wall-to-wall carpeting, and my promise that I’ll never touch his front paws ever again. But I’m imposing my own wish for him because his green collar is looking ratty. The little man needs a new one that suits him and I think this is a good choice, made by PB&J’s World on Etsy.
