Dear Santa, I've been good.

I'm proud to say that I only made this Christmas wish list AFTER all of my homework was done! See, I told you I've been a good girl this year.
I don't need/want all that much for Christmas this year, but I absolutely NEED a new jacket (I like this one from ModCloth) and a new pair of Vans. I don't like going out clothes shopping all that much, so I end up wearing one article of clothing until it falls apart. I finally had to retire my Vans after they wouldn't hold together anymore (believe me, I thought about duct taping them together so I could keep wearing them) and my jacket is on its last leg.Other than that, I really don't need much. But in case you're wondering what extras I might like..

I've been painting my nails a lot lately but I only have a few shades of nail polish. I like the OPI shades No Room for the Blues, I Think in Pink, and Lucky Lucky Lavender. I normally wear red or dark purple because I don't like how transparent and washed out looking the lighter shades of cheaper nail polishes are, but with OPI you don't have that problem.
There was a great Clinique eyeshadow pallet that I got years ago as one of their free promotion things that I LOVED, but I don't remember the names of the shadows. Since then I've been trying to find the closest shades, and this custom MAC pallet  with Jest, Cranberry, Goldmine, and Swish is pretty close. I hate spending money, so I don't own any fancy makeup. I don't know how they can sleep at night charging people $10 for a tiny little thing of eyeshadow, but people swear by it.
I also love food scented things. Is it so wrong of me to want to smell like cinnamon rolls or cupcakes? I don't think so. Philosophy makes a rice crispy scented body wash. RICE CRISPIES!! Just thinking about it makes my mouth water.
Normally kitchen gadgets top my wish list, but my kitchen is so small that I don't have space for a bunch of extras. Plus, I don't cook as much as I used to, but I'm still convinced that I would get plenty of use out of a food processor. (Of course I like the pink one.) After I tried to make pesto in a tiny blender and completely shredded a spatula in the process I've really really wanted a proper food processor.
It's not that I don't cook because I don't like it, it's just hard to find the motivation to cook for only myself. But this doesn't mean I wouldn't appreciate some new cookbooks. I love vintage cookbooks, but good vintage cookbooks, with recipes that you actually want to try, are really hard to come by. They have some cute kitschy/retro cookbooks available online.
Of course I'd also like some fabric. I always want more fabric! I keep an up-to-date wish list on, but I really like this jelly roll. I hate cutting out fabric, especially long straight strips. Jelly rolls cut out a lot of time I would have spent on my knees on my living room floor, pushing my cat off the fabric, and cutting by hand, hoping it comes out straight.
Lastly, I kind of really want a giant gummy bear. (pineapple flavor) I want to spend all of Christmas day in a sugar coma.
