A lot of people have been doing this on their blogs so I figured I’d make my own wish list too 🙂 (Although this is more of a personal shopping list of items I need to pick up while I’m here in California. Most of these are things that are expensive in the Philippines but are pretty cheap over here.)
1. A new laptop
My 3-year old Sony Vaio has been giving me a lot of problems lately so I figured it’s about time I replace it. I don’t really have a specific model in mind yet, but I’m probably be going to be sticking with Sony. My parents have already told me to think about what I want for Christmas so I’m going to ask them to take care of this one for me XD
2. Graphics tablet
My 4-year old Wacom Bamboo Fun tablet has given up, and editing pictures takes twice as long when I try to do it with a mouse, so this is something I definitely need. I’m thinking of getting it as a Christmas present to myself.
3 . Set of makeup brushes
Makeup brushes can get pretty expensive in the Philippines.
4. Make up
Mascara, eyeliner, blush, eyeshadows – I want them all! Drugstore brands (Revlon, Maybelline, Cover Girl, etc) are much cheaper here in the US compared to the Philippines.
5. Hair care products
I’ve been ironing my hair a lot, so I probably need a good heat protectant.
I love reading so this is probably something I would use a lot. (Although my dad tells me that I should just save up for an Ipad instead.)
7. 2012 planner
Ckloy already promised to get me the new CBTL planner 😀 He told me that it will be waiting for me when I return.
Two of our dogs got pregnant last month, so I’ve been looking forward to having a bunch of puppies to play with. One of them (Jin) gave birth last week, but she only had one pup. I’m hoping that Akira will have at least two 🙂
9. Scented candles
I’ve been enjoying the huge scented candle that my mom gave me last month, but I’ve used up about half of it already. I’m planning on picking up a bunch of cinnamon-scented candles while I’m here.
Except for the laptop, tablet and reader, I think everything on my list is pretty reasonable. Let’s hope Santa thinks I’m nice enough to deserve all these gifts 🙂
