What I want for Christmas 

What I want for Christmas. Well it’s a question one should not ask me because I have two lists at the moment. I have the expensive one and the so-so Christmas list. When I say expensive I mean really expensive by my standards. For some this might not be expensive at all but it is for me. We usually want so much for Christmas that sometimes we forget the true spirit and reason for the celebration. Thanking God for sending his son, to save us from the evils of the world.

Now that we’ve established how we should thank first. let’s see what’s on my expensive Christmas list. I mean what I am dreaming to get, a girl can dream right? without dreams what are we?

 

what I want for christmas

What I want for Christmas 

  • Car – I told you it was an expensive list. Now that I am serious about driving and will be doing my practical test soon I need to buy a car. Even a small car will do, my parents have promised to help me pay towards it.
  • Camera – I need to improve my blog pictures. Don’t get me wrong I love my iPhone 6 Plus and it takes good pictures. But now I am aiming for better resolution and just take the blog to the best level.
  • New Bed Frame – you know I was recently sent an amazing mattress from Leesa. This kind of mattress requires an equally amazing bed frame. Ok maybe not but I just need a new bed frame as I am tired of my old divan bed.
  • New smart phone – normally I would say new iPhone but right now I am open to all. Whilst in South Africa my iPhone suffered a screen crack my first in years. So instead of just having it fixed which is costing ridiculous amount I just need a new phone.
  • Trip to Hawaii – just because 2017 is a year of staycations doesn’t mean I have abandoned my travel abroad dreams. I told my friends that for my 30th I have three places I want to go: Hawaii, Bali or Vegas.  

Now for the not so expensive Christmas list

  • Good health for my family, I have an elderly grandmother who it would mean the world to me if her health stayed on point.
  • Happiness for my family, I don’t ask for much just that I have a healthy and happy family.

Besides the air we breath is already free so, world peace, health and happiness is all about me done.

What do you think of what I want for Christmas? What’s on your list?

    Love your Christmas wishlist <3 I got my Christmas wish a little early this year. All I wanted was for my 3 year old to start sleeping at night as he really hadn't since bonfire night 2015 and it's been a hard year with him being so tired and irritable in the day. But last week things started to get better and we've had lots of good night sleeps since! I'm now asking that it continues in to the next year 😉 lol

    Louise x

    • December 2, 2016 / 11:37 am

      Awww bless you love, glad his sleeping through the night and I pray it continues

  9. November 29, 2016 / 8:59 am

    Fab list. I haven’t really written up a list. I should.

    • December 3, 2016 / 10:01 am

      Thanks Stella

  10. November 28, 2016 / 10:36 pm

    I loved that you spoke about good health for your family, I think we can all forget how important the people close to us are!

    • December 2, 2016 / 11:36 am

      Thanks and yes sometimes we get carried away and forget the most important things our family and close friends

    I would love a new camera too – I bet that’s on every bloggers Christmas wish list!

    • December 2, 2016 / 11:36 am

      I bet isn’t it, I managed to gift me one

  12. November 28, 2016 / 8:13 pm

    I need a new bed frame, as ours is on the floor and a trip to Hawaii too! But my husband doesn’t fly, so that’s kind of hard to do! LOL!

    • December 2, 2016 / 11:35 am

      Awww bless him, can he cruise though?

    • December 3, 2016 / 10:23 pm

      He’d actually love to go on a cruise. He’s never been. Its a bucket list thing for him. I’ve been on 2 and love to cruise!

    • December 5, 2016 / 8:52 am

      Awww bless him, hope he manages to tick that one off on his travel bucketlist

  13. November 28, 2016 / 7:05 pm

    There’s is definitely nothing wrong with dreaming, hopefully Santa will help towards realising your dreams:) your soso ones are just as important, health and happiness for your loved ones are the most important gifts 🙂 for those who believe in Jesus, I’m also with you with remembering the spirit of Christmas though 🙂 x

    • December 2, 2016 / 11:35 am

      Thanks Isabella, I hope Santa heard me lol

  14. November 28, 2016 / 3:34 pm

    Ohh, I like that bed frame! We could definitely use a new one. This year, when people ask me what I want, I am saying, “A mortgage payment”, Hahaha!

    • November 28, 2016 / 5:19 pm

      Hahahaha, I would say that too if I had one.

      I hope you guys get one before me

  17. November 28, 2016 / 9:54 am

    A new car would be amazing, I’m currently running mine to the ground. Some great options for your 30th, small world but I’m doing Hawaii and Bali next year x

    • November 28, 2016 / 5:15 pm

      Oh wow, wouldnt it be even more wonderful if we met up lol

  18. November 28, 2016 / 8:34 am

    A new car would be on my list as well – not sure that’ll happen though! x

    • November 28, 2016 / 5:13 pm

      Well lets have our fingers and toes crossed and hope Santa hear us 🙂

  19. November 28, 2016 / 6:02 am

    That is a really expensive Christmas list, but yea, I’d be happy with any of those new items too, lol! A trip to Hawaii would be brilliant.

    • November 28, 2016 / 6:16 am

      I know right, I thought why not it put it out there, never know what the heavens might have in store for me.

    All sounds really great! I want an iPad mini. My normal Ipad’s screen is shattered so I want something smaller for work use. I just got 2 new cameras, so its about all I want this year!

    • November 28, 2016 / 6:16 am

      Oh how nice, I have a tablet that I hardly use and just got me a camera so I think I am all sorted now

  21. November 27, 2016 / 11:24 pm

    Great Christmas wishlist, I really want to get a new camera very soon

    • November 28, 2016 / 6:15 am

    I agree I need a new camera I did treat myself after reading some great reviews but was left rather disappointed so I am not rushing into buying another just yet

    • November 28, 2016 / 6:15 am

      Oh dear what a shame, hope the next one will be better

    I was so busy recently that I haven’t started thinking about Christmas wishes. This year I would want happiness and overall success for myself and my family. Hope at least one of your wishes will come true.

    • November 27, 2016 / 8:52 pm

      Thanks Evelina, I made one of my wishes come true I bought me a camera lol

  24. November 27, 2016 / 7:09 pm

    I’m really happy with my phone and camera now. I opted for a Huawei this time – instead of a Samsung. That was a lucky escape. Hope you get something good from your wishlist

    • November 27, 2016 / 8:51 pm

      Thanks I want to try the Huawei phoned I am hearing good things only.

    November 27, 2016 / 6:56 pm

    Me too I would love anew camera but I don’t know what to get. There are so many on the market I don’t know what would be the best for me.

    • November 27, 2016 / 8:51 pm

      I just managed to buy me yesterday it’s a Canon PowerShot SX530 HS and it’s awesome (so far)

    • Melanie Edjourian
      November 28, 2016 / 8:15 am

      I was looking at some kind of Panasonic but there are so many to choose from. I will look yours up too now, thanks x

    • November 28, 2016 / 5:23 pm

      For some reason I neevr look at Panasonic except for home security or TVs lol but yeah check out the Canon

  26. November 27, 2016 / 6:23 pm

    I would love a new tablet, just an inexpensive one as my old tablet died a few months ago and I’ve missed having one.

    • November 27, 2016 / 8:50 pm

      Awww there are some nice deals at the moment so hopefully you can get one

  27. November 27, 2016 / 4:47 pm

    Health and happiness are such lovely things to wish for! I’d love a new camera, too, but I think I’m going to be saving up for one 🙂

    • November 27, 2016 / 6:03 pm

      Thanks Jess, if we have our health and happiness then we can wish for other things

  28. November 27, 2016 / 3:05 pm

    Oh we are so desperate for a new bed frame! Ours is so old fashioned now but we keep pushing it down the shopping list. I daren’t write a complete list – it would go on for days!

    • November 27, 2016 / 6:03 pm

      Hahaha same here but for now I had to put these out there lol

    I’d love a new camera and new laptop. But ultimately I’m just happy and excited that it’s my first Christmas as a Mum x

    • November 27, 2016 / 6:02 pm

    Now that is a gorgeous bed frame! Looks a little similar to my white one from IKEA! And I totally agree with the latter two. x

    • November 27, 2016 / 6:02 pm

      Thanks Jazmin, I really hope to get this soon.
