Enough about the kids. We’ve bought, wrapped, bought some more and wrapped some more. I’m OVER the kid stuff, it’s time to think about MOI. Yeah, right, but a Smarty girl can dream, can’t she?!
This Christmas will probably be a light for one for me, and I’m perfectly ok with that. But each year I drool over a few things that I think are over the top “Jen” and if there was an elf dedicated to me, this would be my loot. Because I know I’ve been good all year long.
I summoned the help of super Smarty stylish Kaylee. If I could choose anyone to be my personal shopper, I would pick her. So together we present:
Our Smarty Favorite Things

I have been collecting Jo Malone for two years now and I absolutely love it. I started with Grapefruit and Orange Blossom and added on from there. The best thing about Jo Malone scents is that you can layer them for day and night. So say during the day you start with the clean smell of Grapefruit. But at night, spice it up with a layer of the new Wild Bluebell and you will be in heaven all night long. Other JM winter faves for me are Vanilla & Anise and Pomegranate Noir. Summer faves include Vintage Gardenia and the two above. Your hubby will love on you every time you spray it:-) You can find Jo Malone online or locally at Neiman Marcus.
This is such a unique and modern spin on the traditional silhouettes we know and love. This photo speaks for itself. Here’s the link.
I use this as hand creme actually. It’s a bit strong for all over your body, but the perfect consistency for your hands and you can smell it all day long. This would be such a yummy stocking stuffer. And it will last forever. You can find this locally at Nordstrom, Macy’s, and Neiman Marcus. Here’s the link.
This is a fun chic gadget that I would love to get in my stocking to jump start my New Year’s never-ending resolution. The new Fitbit tracks your everyday steps, stairs climbed, calories burned, and more, motivating you throughout the day. Here’s the link.
This is my all out splurge if I went big this season. The Frye Melissa Button is to-die-for. I will do anything for these boots.
Makes for an awesome stocking stuffer. Merino Cool is the hip new color of the season. I cheated and already have this and I can’t tell you how many times I get complimented on my nails. And I’m a natural gal who only liked bubble bath on my hands. I’m fully converted to color now! Here’s the link.
This is Kaylee’s pick and she gets a new book every year for her decor. The 2011 pick is Katie Ridder Rooms.
OK, Smarties, share your wish list!
