Heather’s Holiday Wish List


heatherI hate to shop and usually rely on my annoyingly younger sister or sisters-in-law to find the latest and greatest things for me to look good and younger. This year, I was forced to make my own list–thanks to our content director’s request. So it’s not surprising that I was the last one on our staff to send in my wish list. 


duaita-jewelry-ring heatherSomething to Make Me Sparkle
I would love anything from that Bopanna Ulliyada creates for Dualitas.  His work is so gorgeous and simple. One of my favorites pieces is the Aquamarine Single Wrap ring, at only $75. The stone has a beautifully unique cut and is paired with a Rose Quartz bezel. You can layer rings and necklaces together to make more of a statement. Check out their rings, earrings and cuff bracelets at Dualitas.

eye creamSomething to Make Me Temporarily Look Young Again
Our content editor, Amy Nidds, turned me on to this miracle cream for wrinkles and puffy eyes. She gave me a sample and it worked in seconds. It only works temporarily but would be great to have for rough mornings! Instantly Ageless, $39.95 for 25.

oribe shampoo Heather's listoribe heather's listSomething to Inhale
I love all the products made by Oribe. They smell AMAZING; it’s not too sweet or flowery–just soothing. It’s smells like a blend of jasmine and sandalwood. Their products not only make my hair silky and soft but make me irritable to hug. But they are a bit of a splurge so I’d love to find a bottle in my stocking. Oribe, $39. Santa, if you could please throw in a candle as well, that would be awesome. $62.

brahminSomething to Have and Hold
My day-to-day back is tired and when it looks tired…I look tired. I need a new bag and love the lines and texture on this leather Brahmin bag. I have a small vintage alligator bag that I love and this reminds me of it but is big enough for day-to-day. You can find the Elisa Melbourne Bag by Brahmin at Nordstrom. $375

fitflopSomething to Keep My Tootsies Warm
I ask for a new pair of these FitFlop slippers every years. I have bad feet and really can’t stand to walk barefoot in the house. And most slippers, are flat on the bottom. These feel so good; they actually have support. Plus, they keep your tootsies cozy. I recommend them to anyone with foot issues. I found mine at my local shoe store but you can also get them online. FitFlop, $80
