Why hello savvy shopper and all around MODG fan. Welcome to the holiday series of STUFF I LIKE. This will be a multi part feature to help you shop for your B, your G and to make your own list. That is if you’re a (days away from being) 31 year old mom with a baby whose list has gone from leather leggings to steam mops. Life really smacks you in the face with an evil mirror when it comes time to make your Christmas list. So this is part 1 and it’s the stuff that is on my list.
I’m asking you to not alley rape me with your brain for having such mom things on my list. I also have some regular girl shit too. Also, don’t buy EVERYTHING or when people go to buy me things there will be none left. You think I’m kidding but you hoarders buy up everything on these lists. JK. buy it all. $$$$ for me.
As we go through this list, keep in mind that I haven’t tried all of this crap but I know I want it. I just KNOW IT. I found this on Outblush. They said something like “look like Nicole Richie not trying too hard awesome” and I was like SIGN ME UP. I super love Nars anyway. Orgasm is overrated. THE MAKEUP COLOR YOU PERV.
I’m SO hesitant to tell you all about this. I’ve been using this stuff since college and all of my sorority slores would steal it from me. It is hands down THE BEST bronzer out there and it’s like 3 dollars. It’s a gel that doesn’t streak and really makes you look awesomely tan. And isn’t that every sorority girl’s dream? I can only find it in this weird drug store here that I swear was created just for stoners to go into and laugh at. I digress. YOU NEED THIS I SWEAR IT. And I need more of it.
Ok brace yourself for the mom section. I have some ghetto mixing bowls that I got from ikeawalget like 100 years ago. I’ve wanted nice ceramix mixing bowls for a long time. Because they also double as serving bowls. I can also mix up your face in it for giving me side eye for putting mixing bowls on my Christmas list. JS.
Many of you savvy (read: stalker) MODG fans know that I have art by this artist over our bed. We had a custom piece done with one heart that is the map of California and one that is the map of Pennsylvania (get it? Me and B? I know vomit) But it’s too small for the wall. So I want 2 of these bad boys in 5×7 flanking it.
I really really have wanted this watch for a long long time. You can change the band to be any color or pattern. It’s meant for men which means it’s extra bad ass. Women watches are dumb town.
I can *feel* your side eye from here. Listen bitches…its my job to clean our hardwood once a week. It’s a bitch. Also as a good hippie, I worry about the chemicals in my swiffer with crawling baby. This bad boy operates on just steam. Need it.
For scarf tying idiots. Nice to meet you.
We call this BABY JAIL. I picked the least baby jail picture to show you. Click on the link and you’ll see some real hard core babies in the slammer. But we need this for this exact reason. Genius baby has learned that not only is it awesome to bang on the fireplace glass, if you say “no” he cracks up in evil laughter. As to avoid fire babies….I want this.
Ok, listen here. I have a minor sick obsession with Smart Wool socks. If I read this before I actually tried them, I would have thought that the writer was a lame sock loving cat hoarding mom (ok…well….) These are so good I have them on my list THREE times. They are thick and tight and warm and soft in all perfect amounts. I wear them for a good 4 days (day and night) before washing them because 1) I’m a dirt ball and 2) I can’t BARE to be without them for a washing cycle. TRUST A SISTER.
Replacing all of our ghetto ziplock plastic tupps is on my hippie list. Glass it is. Everyone who is anyone knows that plastic tupperware is bad bad bad. Glass is bad ass.
I also have a set of these in our bedroom and they were shipped in a tiny envelope from India. B was like Are you SERIOUSLY ordering shit from all over the globe again? Yes, because authentic ikat is amazing. I want these now for my living room. Don’t buy this color or I’ll kill you.
I’m a huge HUGE fan of the Fresh line. When I was preg I discovered it. I’ve always had trouble skin (nice way of saying pimple city). And when you’re preg you can’t use the good stuff. This line worked better than anything I’ve ever used. I use the cleanser the soy cream and I want this. It all smells like heaven on a marshmallow.
My life consists of baby care and watching every episode of everything on Bravo. I’m a big RHOBH fan and I die for Camille’s jewelry. She makes me interested in statement earrings. She also makes me interested in botox. Anyway, I found these on Etsy and I need them. See?
I’m already regretting posting this. I’ll never see them.
Ok I actually already have this on pre-order. It’s the Bloggess’s book. And let’s be honest, I need to steal some of her ideas.
In my Intelligence Room, I have a shag rug. Cool idea at the time. Fast forward 5 years and the baby thinks it’s a giant bag of lunch. Not cool anymore. I want this now.
Ok now this is where I get my future ideas. Post the stuff YOU want for whatever greedy holiday you celebrate. Next up will be stuff B likes. And if you’re husband/boyfriend also wants a 12 pack of bandanas, we’re all set!
This post was brought to you by the fine folks at See You There designs. She did my wedding album and it’s seriously amazing. It’s the only girl I know of who will make you a custom album with your pictures and isn’t stupid about it. (i.e. affordable and awesome). Go check her out. She’s away right now but still taking orders.
