Hi, I'm Lexi! I have two blogs (soon to be one!) In the meantime, you can find me at Glitter, Inc. (currently Glitter & Pearls + Glitter Weddings.) So excited that Ashlyn asked me to be a part of her Christmas Wishes series! My family actually celebrates Chanukah, which means I can ask for 8 awesome presents (haha, or at least that worked when I was in Elementary School.) These are my wants (and dreams!) Hope you love!

Craving leather sleeves: Rag & Bone Jean Jacket.
The perfect flat: Chanel.
Can't wait to try Tom Ford's new line of lipstick -- currently going through a major lipstick phase.
The goes-with-everything Tory Burch wrap bracelet.
Blame the blog, but I've gone a bit camera crazy as of late: the new Canon Rebel T4 + the Polaroid Instant Camera.

And happy holidays!


Stopping by from One Fine Day!
Here are just a few things I'm looking forward to this Christmas season...

The following items have been wish-listed:
Collection Skirt in Flame Floral Jacquard: I'm absolutely smitten with the print and bounty of bright colors. I can already think of endless outfit possibilities; it's an investment piece that would surely become a wardrobe staple. 
Kate Spade Gia - Tequila Is Not My Friend: I think this is cheeky, adorable, and semi-autobiographical. I'm such a bag lady, and I know I could find a few ways to put this cute little pouch to use.
Collection Cece Bow Ballet Flats: These are my favorite shoes; they're SO comfy. I love the bow detail—it's precious, and I think I NEED them!
Gorjana Stackable Alphabet Ring: I'm thinking the letter "A" would be apropos.
Bubbly Champagne Flutes: How fabulous are these? I adore the gold details.

I'd love to find these odds and ends in my stocking:
Pocket Umbrella in Neon Azalea: I love stripes and this has to be one of my favorite color combinations. It would be a perfect bright spot to a rainy day, which we get a lot this time of year in Hawaii. 
Poppin Metal Pen: This is my favorite shade of green. I must have a set of these at my desk and stat.
Sugar Paper Confetti Monogram Notecards: I'm crazy about stationery and these are a-mazing!
Essie Polish in Clambake: This is my absolute FAVORITE shade, and I'd love a new bottle to just appear in my stocking. Hint, hint.
Rosebud Salve: This stuff is invaluable. It's one of my go-to beauty products and I don't think you can ever have enough of it around.

This Christmas, my parents are coming to visit and I can't wait to...
Decorate my house with cute Christmas knick-knacks like this felt mistletoe.
Bake cookies with my mom—these Toffee-Pretzel Peanut Butter Cookies look delectable!
Wrap presents for family and friends and adorn them with metallic pom-poms.
