Karen’s Wish List

karen ChrismasI’m going to skip right to it — no one has time for anything but the facts this season. I let my kids ask Santa for three things, and the big guy usually surprises them with the rest. Here are my three top wishes this year.

Almost any bracelet from Uno de 50. I love the leather and metal combinations, and I think they will be fantastic for years to come. At this price point though, they can be trendy and not break the bank.screen-shot-2016-12-06-at-9-16-53-pm$140

Comfy pants that give the illusion I just came from a workout … but not leggings. I think my butt is getting too saggy for leggings (clearly, I should just actually go do a workout.)

my wish karen work out pantsAthleta $89 – but I want them only if they are on sale.
I’m cheap when it comes to “work out” clothes. 

A really warm coat that isn’t puffy — I love my puffy coat, but sometimes you just want to look a little less, well … puffy. I’m already using Preparation H on my puffy eyes and we are not even 1/2 way through the month.
