Christmas Wishlist

What's the point of making a wish list if no one will ever fulfill it? Hahaha Pardon my bitterness. Maybe I'm just PMS-ing or having one of those unexplained moody attacks. So before going to work, I decided to entertain myself by compiling another shopaholic list. There's no way for me to purchase these because I already made advanced Xmas purchases. Nevertheless, let me compile some items that remain in my wishlist. Who knows, I'll have a secret and surprise Santa... Oh well, I think that's another wish to begin with. ;)

Monogram Necklace - I've explored Etsy and local producers for this monogram necklace. There are a lot of excellent manufacturers to choose from. Unfortunately, the hefty price tag prevents me from investing to this piece of personalized jewelry. If I will have more freelance works next year, this can serve as my next project. I particularly prefer the version in white gold .... which is definitely more expensive.

Unique Wooden Dining Chairs - This has remained as a promise for my family. Late last year, I was about to purchase a similar wooden chair from a neighborhood sash factory. Unfortunately, the owner can't wait for my 13th month pay. He sold the design to another buyer.

Book Shelf and Working Table - Exactly like this! My books and my laptop are contained in one area.

Vita Fede's Leather Bracelet - Another very expensive want!!! The last time I checked, a simple leather bracelet from Vita Fede costs around Php 6,000?!?

This Cath Kidston Wallet - The blue version is already on sale on Cath Kidston's site. Blue is my favorite color but I'm beginning to prefer the lighter color.

Lacoste's Women Polo Shirt - Yes, it has to be in blue! When I have the money to acquire one, I hope there will be decent sizes available for me.

Kipling's Beonica Shoulder Bag - So expensive at Php 7,200 from Zalora Philippines!!! I'm trying to use my discount codes only to later discover that it will never happen. This item is excluded in Zalora's promos.

Tom's Ballet Flats in Shinny Ivory Burlap - My size is no longer available in Toms' online store. I checked local retailers and learned that this style is no longer available. My only hope is Amazon and the Black Friday Deal.

  1. Hi Diane,
    I think we all have some sort of wish list that we dream about :) Those monogram necklaces are really popular!
    The CK wallet is pretty. Best to wait until the Black Friday sales :) Good luck and hope your week is off to a good start!

  2. Beautiful choices. Lovely pendant.
    I've been hankering for ghost chairs, kaso ang mahal dito sa Pinas. Found reasonably priced ones online, pero 10 pieces ang minimum. :(

    2. Actually, two years back, lalabas sa approx. 4K lang ang isang chair. Not Starcke though.
      Aba, pag may nakita pa tayong ibang may gusto, why not?! Baka dalawa na kuhanin ko. Hehehehe, nagpaplano na ako.

  5. I made several attempts buying online especially those from online stores in UK or US. However, the taxes and shipping fee is very steep. Is it really that expensive?

    1. Which one? pero in general, ganun nga talaga. what I suggest, pool orders from your friends and relatives so that u can share the shipping fees

  8. Reading this post reminded me to create my own wish list so my husband knows what to get me for Christmas. Haha! I told my husband that our house needs three things: 1) a nice kitchen 2) a blogging/working table and 3) a giant bookshelf! :) Ballet flats are also included in my wish list. Mine nga lang is the Jessica Simpson ballet flats. :) Ang tagal ko ng pangarap 'yun! :p

  9. I saw nice monogram necklaces by Willow Jewelry (shop is owned by the blog-famous Tina Tagle). Gustung gusto ko makita ang initials ko (EMT) na maging monogram necklace, nag-ask ako ng price, medyo mahal nga. What I did was I had mine (in 14K gold) made by the suking alahera of my MIL. Nakamura naman ako by 30%. Okay naman ang kinalabasan pero pag nakikita ko yung monogram necklace sa Willow Jewelry, gusto ko pa rin ng andun. Haha. :)

    swarovski earrings to dress themselves, enhance their charm.
