Gift Guide: The Kasmas List

December 7, 2016

Am I the only one who’s all warm and fuzzy inside thinking about how close the holidays are? For those of you who don’t know, the Christmas Holidays are my very favorite time of year for many reasons, one of which being that December 25th is also my BIRTHDAY! I know what you’re thinking, ‘Poor Kid, I bet she gets gypped,’ but you couldn’t be more wrong! I get to spend my birthday each year surrounded by the people I love most celebrating the birth of the Savior. What could be better than that?

Saying Merry “Kasmas” has always been the way my family and friends make sure that I know that they remembered me in the middle of all the Christmas stuff going on! In our house we say, “Merry Christmas to all and Merry Kasmas to Kassy!” And then we sing, “Happy Birthday Jesus & Kassy” and with the breath that Jesus gave me, I blow out the candles for the both of us! I love this time of year!

Today I’m sharing with you my combined birthday and Christmas list – The Kasmas List – so that you can see if there is anything I’m asking for that you might want to ask for as well (and also to help my family shop for me because I know I’m not always easy)! Happy List Making!

So I’m pretty obsessed with these burgundy Nikes… am I right? I had an all black pair that I loved but I’m thinking about mixing it up this year. I like to have my running/working out shoes (which are neon pink Saucony Kinvaras – LOVE THEM) and my dress up tennis shoes to wear when I’m sporting my nice errand-running athleisure look.

If you’re a candle person like me and you haven’t tried the Volcano candle from Anthropology, you’re seriously missing out. It’s my fav. I’ve gone through 2 already and I’m wishing I had a third. I think it has a universal scent that you could use all year long.

I love a good neutral watch and this Cluse one is less than $100 and so stinking perfect for any outfit. And these bauble bar statement earrings have been on my list for a while.

Probably the item that has been on my list the longest are those Octagon(ish) Ray-Ban’s. Love that they are sort of round but really edgy (haha… see what I did there)!  Also, I’ve been looking for a burgundy cross body and I found this one for only $24 at Old Navy. It’s a velvety fabric which is soooo in right now and it comes in several colors.

Also, I like to buy a new planner every year around this time for next year (even though I probably stop using them around March or April because #LAZY) and I fell in love with Kate Spade’s new floral print. I love a good understated floral!

    That agenda is divine! Such a great find! I can’t believe it’s December and I haven’t selected by 2017 agenda yet! Is this real life?

    I really like the maroon shoes. I have several outfits those would go nicely with. The sunglasses are super cute also.
