What I want for Christmas 

I have seen too many posts in the last few days sharing their gift guides for families and friends, from babies to adults, from pet gift guides to homeware ideas. I thought this year I was going to be very selfish and think about what I want for Christmas.

what i want for christmas

I have not purchased a single gift for myself or any of my family and friends. Some may find this strange but when I was growing up in Zambia we didn’t really focus on presents, for us just being alive was a present enough for the families and friends. Fast forward 15 years later and in UK it’s all about ‘what am I getting this year‘. There is nothing wrong with giving families and friends gifts but sometimes I think we go overboard and forget the true reason for the festive period.

With that being said, I still want to give me some presents for this Christmas. It has been a long year, it has been a year of accomplishments and achievements and little to no disappointments. Last year when I thought the year and world was against me I was greeted with a very fabulous 2015.

What I want for Christmas

1. Winter holiday – I want to go on one more trip abroad before the year ends. Next year I intend to travel twice a month either abroad or home ground.

2. Curling wand – I recently treated myself to the day at the salon and had my hair done. But since I am bad at maintaining my weave I thought this time I will make an effort and start getting some tools to help me.

3. New wardrobe – I am sure every girl wants this but I want to donate all that I no longer use or can’t fit in anymore and start afresh. It’s a big job to declutter my old wardrobe but it needed to be done

4. Flat tummy – some of us have been blessed with extra padding around the mid section. This Christmas I want a flat tummy so I can consume as much as I want and gain my current mid section.

5. Expensive jewellery – every woman has an item of luxury (expensive) that they own. I have none, the most expensive thing I own apart from my home furnishings is my chromebook.

6. Health – this one is the most important one not only for me but for my family too. This is the one gift I hope to continue receiving every day. Above have shown I too can be greedy and superficial but for my family’s health and mine I am not taking no chances nor prisoners.

This is what I want for Christmas, what is your wish?

    Most things that I want can’t be bought from a store… I think I’ll just say that I’d love to be able to travel, too. That’s a great wishlist item.

      Thank you Julie

    I think we all want a flat tummy. LOL. I know that if you ask Santa and you’ve made it to the good list, he’ll be sure to deliver. LOL! But seriously, I can’t wait to see your posts from your travels.

    • December 8, 2015 / 5:09 am

      Hahaha, thanks hun. Not sure I have been entirely good but will see what the big man delivers

    Ok did you read my mind when you wrote this? I am defiantly on the same page as you this holiday season! I am in dire need of brand new clothes.

    • December 8, 2015 / 5:10 am

      Hahaha, well I am glad we’re in sync and hope you get some nice clothes

  4. December 6, 2015 / 6:32 pm

    I love your list!! Curling wands are a must, I have a bunch of different sized ones and they are life savers!

  5. December 6, 2015 / 1:09 am

    I wouldn’t mind waking up on Christmas morning with a flat tummy! ~lol~ Joking aside, I honestly never really want anything for Christmas. 🙂

    I know the feeling. Every time the holidays come around, I hate the constant buy buy buy mentality. I have been trying to talk my kids into skipping presents and just going on a vacation together. I’d love to have a flat tummy. I don’t think I’ve ever had one in my entire life, lol.

  7. December 4, 2015 / 5:42 pm

    Curling wands are an amazing invention! I love changing up my hair with one. Fun Christmas wish list 🙂

    • December 5, 2015 / 8:23 am

      I too I am in love with them as of late, managed to scoop one up from Argos.

  8. December 4, 2015 / 4:16 pm

    I love your wish list!! You had me smiling at that weight gain strategy . I hope you get that winter holiday soon

    • December 5, 2015 / 8:24 am

      Hahaha thanks, I just want space for christmas food

  9. December 4, 2015 / 1:37 pm

    Ahh, I am so glad I’m not the only one who thinks to lose the tum to gain it again for Christmas! haha Look forward to seeing where you get to go before the year is out, I love travelling 🙂 x

    • December 5, 2015 / 8:25 am

      Hahaha, thanks. I too love travelling

    • December 5, 2015 / 8:29 am

      Thanks, not sure about the flat tummy but thanks anyway

  11. December 4, 2015 / 2:32 am

    Love your wish list, I could really use 1. for Christmas too but I’m grateful for 6.

    • December 5, 2015 / 8:33 am

      Thanks, we should all aim for 6

  12. December 4, 2015 / 1:19 am

    I really want a curling wand too! Think I may go for a pink one as it’s my favourite colour.

    • December 5, 2015 / 8:39 am

      I wanted one and I managed to get one, hope you get the pink one too

  13. December 4, 2015 / 1:17 am

    Especially as a mom, we all forget about ourselves a little bit. There is nothing wrong with wanting a little somethin’. I got myself a nice Michael Kors bag from my huz. Lol.

    • December 5, 2015 / 9:08 am

      You mums definitely deserve some me time and treats this christmas. I want an MK bag too

  14. December 3, 2015 / 11:10 pm

    I want a new wardrobe too but I have far too many clothes already. Expensive jewellery sounds good!

  15. December 3, 2015 / 10:04 pm

    I’d love everything on your list! Flat tummy – yes please! Jewellery – definitely! Family’s health – the best one of all! This was a lovely read hun x

  16. December 3, 2015 / 9:53 pm

    I would really like a little vacation this winter too. It would be nice to fit in a little two day trip before the holidays.

  17. December 3, 2015 / 9:18 pm

    I really need to declutter my wardrobe too!! I hadnt thought about doing it for Christmas and giving it away, thank your the inspiration. I hope you have a great Christmas and get everything on your wish list x

  18. December 3, 2015 / 8:23 pm

    What a lovely and not too greedy wish list! I’m with you on the flat tummy but only I can achieve that one. Hope your 2016 is just as fabulous x

  19. December 3, 2015 / 7:45 pm

    I think my wish list is pretty close to yours!!! I can’t believe its time for the holidays already again!

  20. December 3, 2015 / 7:32 pm

    I can totally relate to this, I think its why I like Thansgiving more because we come together, eat a great meal, spend time with one another and its not about the gifts. My husband is a big gift giver and likes to be over the top with it, which can make me uncomfortable. Sometimes its the simpler things that matter. I too want a flat tummy for Christmas. 😉

  21. December 3, 2015 / 5:05 pm

    I am dying to get a curling wand! My hairdresser also used one, and I have been desperate to get one. I told my husband that is all I want for Christmas.

  22. December 3, 2015 / 5:05 pm

    Health and happiness for my family and I too please Santa! Lovely post, I hope you get everything you want:)

  23. December 3, 2015 / 3:20 pm

    I’ll take the flat tummy!! Please and thank you.

  24. December 3, 2015 / 2:38 pm

    I would quite like a flat tummy, I have probably left it a bit late x

  25. December 3, 2015 / 2:08 pm

    I can relate to a lot of the items on your list. I think good health for me and my family is so important! It’s something that’s so precious!

  26. December 3, 2015 / 12:33 pm

    Love your list. I’d love a flat tummy too. I hope you get what’s on your wish list. Have a happy holiday 😀

  27. December 3, 2015 / 9:41 am

    After two babies, i think a flat tummy is out of the question for me but a girl can dream right? I haven’t asked for anything this year, i have everything i need and want already xx

    • December 3, 2015 / 10:06 am

      A girl can dream indeed and love that you have everything you want and need

  28. December 3, 2015 / 8:37 am

    If only a flat belly was achievable before Christmas for me. However I have my health and my little boy so am very lucky indeed.

    • December 3, 2015 / 10:08 am

      You’re more than lucky hun

  29. December 3, 2015 / 8:17 am

    Haha! I need to get it on the flat tummy. I wonder where I can get one of those 😉

    • December 3, 2015 / 10:18 am

      I am still looking hun, once I do I will share lol

  30. December 3, 2015 / 8:06 am

    I second the flat belly one! 😀
    Love your wish list for Christmas. I wish to put an end to my long distance relationship next year as my fiance and I are preparing to make our dream come true to be married and live together.
    Wishing you all your wishes come true.

    • December 3, 2015 / 10:19 am

      I wish you the best for next year hun, that wedding needs to happen asap and your dreams need to come true too.
