There are precious few things I want in the winter almost as much as I want to hibernate by the fire with my pup. But those things often include skincare that keep me feeling soft and supple, things that make my pale face look it’s still alive in spite of it’s winter shade, and nice new ways to keep my lips hydrated.
This mid winter wish list includes all of the above, plus a few other things that have been winter beauty trends that I just need…cuz I needs it.

Inatek Felt Laptop Sleeve // Starting out completely off topic, how cute is this laptop case? I just got a new MacBook Pro and I really wanted a nice sleeve for it, but I didn’t want to spend a ton of money. (not because I’m cheap, mostly because I change my mind pretty often and I’ll probably want a new one in a few months). I found this one on Amazon, and not only is it super stylish in a very chic minimalist way, it’s also only $16.99! Cha-ching! Pew pew pew scoooore!
Urban Decay Vice Liquid Lipsticks // I have been waiting for this to be a thing for literally YEARS. I have loved urban decay since I was a kid, and the fact that they didn’t have a liquid lipstick available haunted my dreams. Now they are here and so far all the reviews are stellar so I’m really excited! By the time you read this I’ll probably have already ordered a few.
Fresh Cocoa Body Exfoliant // When I was in college and more stressed than I should have been I vividly recall someone giving me a gift certificate to get a professional cocoa body scrub at a spa. At the time it was exactly what I needed and I have such a fond memory of it. I got a sample of this scrub and it immediately took me back to that experience. So I can really see this having a place in my treat-yo-self repertoire.
Too Faced Papa Don’t Peach Blush // I have little to no interest in the peach palettes or the peach lip glosses that too faced has been coming out with. To be honest the marketing seems juvenile to me and the colors aren’t very unique. But I actually got to play with a tester of this blush over the weekend and it’s really beautiful. I tend to wear the same three to five blushes all the damn time but I can see this becoming one them.
Lanolips Lip Sheen // For ages I have been seeing British bloggers talk about how good this stuff is, and I already know that I like lanolin based lip products. So when I saw that Lanolips is now available in the US I was pumped! I haven’t been to Ultra to grab a tube just yet (and I can’t make a whole Ulta order just because I want this one item…or can I? ????) But you bet your sweet nippy I’m gonna pick up a tube next time I’m there.
Clarisonic Mia Fit // Last week I went for a facial and I was cheating with the facialist about skincare. She said she thinks my skin is in killer shape but she think I should use a clarisonic to exfoliate in a few hard to get areas. She’s probably right, and I used to be super on top of my Clarisonic game, but I lost my charger the last time I moved and I just stopped using it. It was pretty beat up anyway, so I think it’s time to invest in this new, more compact version.
Too Cool For School Egg Cream Body Butter// I think I may have written about this before so I will keep it short and sweet, but this is by far the best body butter I have ever tried. It absorbs so quickly, leaves you super soft and also smells like heaven. It was sold out for ages and it’s finally back in stock. I will take 1400 tubs so I can fill a pool and swim in it TYSM.
