Wish List 2012

Wish List 2012

#1: Moleskine journals: Must be in fun colors!  I love when I have one of these handy when inspiration hits me.  In old journals, I have everything from old art ideas to Christmas lists to recipes.  Even better than writing when in the moment is looking back at old renditions of myself. 

#2: Shun knife:  Used one of these puppies at my aunt's house while chopping up some veggies for a big vat of soup.  I never knew that chopping could be so... dare I say... enjoyable?  ENJOYABLE chopping.  Who'd have thunk?  I'd love to have one of these to add to my kitchen.

#3: J.Crew denim shirt:  Is it silly I've wanted this for the better part of a year?  And I still don't have it!  It just seems like the most darn versatile thing in the universe.  I can think of like 60 ways to wear it right NOW! 

#4: Crate & Barrel apron:  I'm spending enough time whipping up culinary exploits in the kitchen that it's time to upgrade from the child-sized (though adorable) red apron I kidnapped from my grandma years ago.  I love it, but it doesn't quite cover me.  Sorry, clothes.

#5: AG skinny jeans:  I'm so glad to be working at Hot Mama.  Otherwise, I would never have discovered the beauty that is premium denim.  Way back when, I used to think it was a lot of money for a similar product as less expensive brands.  Just let me say, whoa.  Put these babies on, and it was like, "Are these jeans or pajamas?!?  Let me check, because I forgot!"  Yeah, that good. 

#6: Uniball Signo pen:  Never before have I been so tempted to snatch a server's pen at a restaurant than I was today.  Signing the check felt like waving Triton's trident.  POWER, baby.

#7:  I recently upgraded from my super-old iPhone to to the 4S.  It's white, and it's pretty.  I don't trust myself to keep it that way.  I'm continually charmed by Kate Spade's phone cases, so I think I'd finally like one of my own. 

Welp, there it is, folks.  My lust list.  When I sat down to put it together, it felt a wee bit selfish, and maybe a bit childish.  Who makes a Christmas list anymore?  But, you know what?  It's kind of nice to do a little retail daydreaming.  I think it helps you get to know yourself better.  :)
