2012 Holiday Wishlist

by Jamie Sanford on December 20, 2012

My turn for a holiday wishlist. I’m very lucky and have already received and opened gifts from my husband’s family and I have already received so many amazing things, many from my Amazon Wishlist. I know people think it is boring to buy from wishlists, but I really love receiving things I picked for myself but probably wouldn’t spend my own money on – luxury stuff, beauty items, etc.

Anyway, the blog holiday wishlist is another beast. I’m going all out on some things I would never ask for. However, some of these aren’t bad at all.

Philip Crangi Trinket Box from the Target+Neiman Marcus holiday collection. This is currently $69.99, but since it isn’t sold out, I’m waiting for it (and some of it’s friends in that collection) to go on sale before I get one of my own.

Prada Flower-Applique Spazzolato Oxford. These are on sale at Neiman Marcus for $904. I would wear these to death. They are beautiful.

Antique Owl Watch Necklace from Fred Flare. A hot deal at $24. So cute.

OMG also from Fred Flare, this total fake McQueen studded clutch. $24.99!

A puppy! I only want a rescue dog though. Smaller than 15 lbs full-grown would be good.

The name is spelled incorrectly, but the Alexander Wang Jaime Chastity Satchel is still fabulous. Available at Saks Fifth Avenue for $925.

Finally, I would like Petra Island in upstate New York. On the island are 2 buildings designed by Frank Lloyd Wright. The island is heart-shaped. I am obsessed. I have been plotting a bigger blog post about it but I have to put it in my wishlist first. Does anyone have a spare $20 million to give me?

Happy holidays everyone. I am traveling for a bit but will be back to write my recaps before the end of 2012.

Gift Selections from Fred Flare

by Jamie Sanford on December 17, 2010

Online shopping can be just as exhausting as in-store shopping, especially if you’re frustrated about not being able to find what you want. It’s easy to go on Amazon and look for things, but now is the time to start shopping the smaller vendors that are still offering guaranteed delivery by Christmas.

One of my favorites is Fred Flare. If you order by EOD on December 17th and spend more than $75, you get free shipping! In addition, their page with shipping info and delivery times is really well done, and I have great appreciation for that.  Here are some of my favorite items from the Fred Flare site.


Sparrow Hooks!  The set of 2 is available for $20. I’ve been trying to find a way to hang my purses on the wall in my bedroom without it turning into a hot mess, and I think that cute hooks like this might be the answer.


Skull Christmas Tree Ornaments! $18 for the set of 4. This perfectly combines my love of gold tree decor and skulls on things.  My whole tree is scattered with gold, I would have to buy at least 2 of these sets so that I could have the gold skulls spread throughout the tree.  I wonder if they will be on sale after Christmas?


Russian Nesting Doll Measuring Cups.  These are very cute, can totally sit on the counter, and don’t take up the weird space in drawers that my current set of measuring cups does.  The Russian Nesting Doll Measuring Cups are $16.


The positivity glass.  I do not tend to always be the most positive individual, so this would be a good reminder that my glass really is half full and that I should quit my bitching.  $14 from Fred Flare.


I would not have this in my house because I’m sure my husband would be very WTF IS THAT about the whole thing.  Even though you could definitely store something in here that isn’t lollipops but is still on a stick of some sort.  Mostly, I enjoy bird things.  The Jonathan Adler Peacock Lollipop Holder is available for $99.


What did I say about birds? That goes almost double for owls these days.  I have a few owls on my tree, I wore an owl necklace yesterday, but that doesn’t mean I wouldn’t like another, especially if it is this cute. $22 at Fred Flare.


Forget Me Knot Ring – I don’t care so much about the implication that this ring will help you remember anything, I just think it is really cute.  It comes in silver or brass, either choice is $54.


Photography is my other great love, and I would buy cameras all day if I had money and space.  Fisheye lenses for my DSLR would cost me at least $500, so this cute camera for $75 is a great deal.  This is actually a film camera though, so that has to be kept in mind as well.

So that’s it for my Fred Flare current favorites. I am always on the lookout for new stores to check out, let me know what your favorite online shops are so I can shop there too.
