My Christmas Wish List – Blogmas

Even though I’m not spending the holidays with family this year, I decided it would be fun to write my own Christmas wish list. It’s funny though because every year my family asks me what I want for Christmas, and I NEVER KNOW. And NOW that I’m not home and no one is asking me what I want for Christmas… of course now I know what I want. Funny how that works no?

By the way, am I the only one who enjoys reading people’s wish lists? After reading them, I automatically fall in love with a new brand, or get obsessed with something I never knew I absolutely needed (well…wanted).

Anyway, maybe you’ll get some cool ideas for your own Christmas wish list, or to gift someone! (But let me preface this by saying…I have expensive-ish taste!)

Well here goes my Christmas wish list:

1. A Kate Spade laptop bag

Raya Was Here

If you don’t know who Raya is…check out her travel youtube channel! She is SUCH a lovely person and her jewelry is super cute!

By the way, 20% of the profits go to building a school in Laos! Look at her necklaces here.

5. A new iPhone 6s Plus

My Christmas Wish List | Apple iPhone 6S Plus | Bad with Directions



I know there’s like 10 other versions of the iPhone now, but honestly, I absolutely love my 6S. The only reason I need a new one is because I cracked the screen and it’s tweakin badly. R.I.P. BUT, I would love for it to be rose gold, 64gb (for pictures and apps you know!), and unlocked (so I can use it all over the world), like this one!

6. A plane ticket home

My Christmas Wish List | Plane Ticket Home | Bad with Directions

I’d love to see my family, friends, and my puppy Luna! (I’m such a bad mom you guys. I adopted Luna, and then abandoned her with my mother for a year and half…so not cool!)

7. A job in Australia

Have I mentioned I’m trying to move to Australia soon?? (SORRY LUNA!) Well, it would be awesome to already have a (good) job set up before I go if possible! Sooo…if any of you know someone who works in a hotel in Sydney or Melbourne…just remember me and message me here! Please and thank you loves!

8. Two new journals

My Christmas Wish List | Moleskin Journals | Bad with Directions


One for my bullet journal: to track my life, my schedule, my to-do lists, and my travels. And another for my daily journaling. I have recently gotten into journaling every day, and let me tell you — it feels amazing! I can’t believe I didn’t start journaling sooner. So one of my new years resolutions is to start and finish a journal with actual journal entries!

My favorite types of journals are the Moleskin soft-cover dotted ones. I love the way they feel after being used for a while, and the fact that I can have the freedom to write, scribble, draw, anywhere (since there are only light dots!)

9. A huge slice of red velvet cake from Brunch & Cake

The BEST CAKE in Barcelona (besides Alsur Cafe’s carrot cake hehe, but Brunch & Cake’s carrot cake is also extremely delicious…)

10. 50 books or book recommendations

I have recently been obsessed with self-development tips and advice, and have heard that rich, happy, and successful people read over 50 books a year. I will be totally honest and say I only read one this year…ONE. How sad is that?!?

So if you have any books to recommend for 2018, please do! I am serious about this one!

Well that’s all I could think of!

What’s on your Christmas wish list this year?

Comment them down below, I’d love to see what else is out there!
