My Unnecessary Wish List

If I got paid for the amount of time I spend adding things to my Nordstrom cart that I’ll never buy, I might actually be able to afford one of these products. Don’t get me wrong, I am more than willing to spend a ridiculous amount of money on a product if I know I absolutely need it, that is not was this post is about. This is all about things that I definitely do not need in my collection, but pine after just the same. So let’s get into my unnecessary (but always therapeutic) list of products!

Marvis Whitening Mint Toothpaste $13.50

I have no idea why I am always so drawn to these toothpastes from Marvis. Maybe it’s the old time-y feel or the boatload of different flavors, but I have always wanted to spend the almost 15 bucks on it. I have very sensitive teeth though, so I will most likely be sticking with Sensodyne for the rest of my life.

Moon Juice Beauty Dust $30.00

Oral beauty supplements have always left me with a raised eyebrow, but something about this powder keeps me coming back. It includes ingredients like goji and pearl to boost radiance from the inside out, giving you a glow without the make up.

Aesop Geranium Leaf Body Scrub $35.00

Aesop is the brand I most want to try, but I can just never bring myself to buy anything from them. Their formulas are intense, and frankly I find myself intimidated. That’s why I would ease into the brand with something like this body scrub. Geranium is such lovely scent, and the green tube is just so fresh looking!

Diptyque Baies Candle $64.00

I am under the impression that if you want to be a successful female adult, you need at least one Diptyque candle in your home. These insanely expensive and luxurious candles are the hallmark of the New York trendsetting cool girls, and I need just one! The best part about these is keeping the lovely little jar after you’re done burning for flowers or make up brushes.

Jo Malone London English Pear & Freesia Cologne $130.00

Jo Malone fragrances are the best in the game to me, and I just need to own one. Chances are I would hardly ever spray it out of an irrational fear of running out (I know I’m not the only one who does this with pricey products) so I can never bring myself to spend the money. If I were ever to get one though, I would pick up this one because of the freesia notes.

Dyson Supersonic Hair Dryer $399.00

This is insane. I will never spend this much on any beauty product. So why is it on this list? Because every time I walk into my Bed Bath & Beyond, I stand in front of the display and hold this until whoever I’m there with tells me we have to go. I have very long, thick hair, so blow drying is a two hour ordeal for me minimum. This is supposed to dry your hair in a quarter of the time, with no frizz or fly aways. When I strike it rich, I will march right back up to that display and proudly put it in my cart for real.

Slip Silk Pillowcase $79.00

On the subject of frizzy hair, I am constantly looking for a solution to my constant hair breakage. I’ve read everywhere that sleeping on a silk pillowcase can drastically reduce the amount of breakage of the hair around your face, which is why I am always throwing this in my cart. It’s also supposed to be much more gentle on your skin than cotton, so it might almost be worth the high price tag.

Mason Pearson Bristle & Nylon Mixture Hairbrush $205.00

Screen Shot 2017-05-31 at 6.41.15 AM

My mother has had this brush for almost 20 years and I remember her always brushing my hair out with it. It is one of the only brushes than can de-tangle my hair without pulling any of it out, and it leaves my hair feeling so silky and smooth. I want so badly to own one of my own!

Giorgio Armani Power Fabric Foundation $64.00

Since this foundation came out I have been dying to try it out! It is supposedly even better than their cult classic Luminous Silk Foundation, and I need to see if the rumors are true. This seems to work for every skin type, and always looks natural and flawless.

Trish McEvoy Lash Curling Mascara $31.50

Screen Shot 2017-05-31 at 6.49.29 AM

After watching Kathleen Lights rave about this curling mascara, I needed to try it out. I always curl my lashes, but nothing can make them stay curled for longer than an hour or two. This is supposed to keep them curled and voluminous all day without flaking off and smudging.

Let me know what’s on your wishlist!

Glowingly yours,

    I have a list like this too! With very similar things on it as well! I have the Diptyque candle on my wish list, the Dyson hairdryer and the Nars Sheer Glow at the top of my “things I cannot afford but really really want” haha xxx
