I know, I know, I’m pretty late in posting my wishlist, but hey, at least you guys have an idea on what I like/need and what to give someone who’s very like me. Plus, my birthday’s coming up in a few months, so I’m making my friends and family’s lives much easier by doing this. Haha. *Hopes they read this*
When people asked me what I wanted for Christmas, I didn’t really know what I want. I listed down random things that popped into my head for the exchange gift wishlists, instead of really thinking about what I wanted or needed. After giving it some thought, and doing some Christmas shopping for my gifts to family and friends, I finally came up with a list. This time around, it’s well thought of.
Click read more to see which stuff I’ve been lusting after this holiday season.
1. Mirrorless Camera
My Nikon DSLR really is a bit heavy to lug around during events, so I’ve been thinking about joining the mirrorless revolution. I’ve been torn between the Fujifilm X-A2 and the Canon EOS M3. What I love about both models is that you can flip the screens for selfies, and use them for video self recording. This one is very important for me if I want to do Youtube videos in the future.
Recently, Fujifilm released a lot of new colors for the X-A2, including pink, mint green, among others. The mint green one is especially pretty. The X-A2 is on sale too, I think they slashed off about 2,500 from it’s retail price.
Canon EOS M3
The Canon EOS M3 gives a bigger advantage in the lens department. If you are a longtime Canon DSLR user, you can actually use the same lens on the mirrorless camera, just buy the adapter.
2. Luggage Cover
I’ve been travelling more this year, and I hope to continue that in the years to come. To avoid the laglag bala or tanim bala airport scam that’s trending recently, it’s good to invest on pretty and practical luggage covers.
Inside Out and City of Dreams luggage covers from Trendcrafters, Inc.
These luggage covers from Trendcrafters, Inc. are affordable and can be customized with names or even phrases. Their current bestseller is the Inside Out design, with Anger in front, and Sadness at the back of the luggage cover.
Luggage covers from Loqi and Wanderskye
I first saw these Loqi Tokyo and Paris luggage covers while shopping around Orchard Road during my recent trip to SG. After doing my Christmas shopping in the malls here, I was pleasantly surprised to find out Urbanize actually carries it, along with other travel brands. For the Wanderskye ones, I’ve seen them at some bazaars throughout the year, and spotted a few design being sold on Lazada.
3. Scratch Map
Again something travel related. I already have a nice world map in my room, but this scratch map is even better. I saw one of these at Quirks SM Aura, and almost bought it, then picked a travel wallet over it instead. *puss in boots eyes please get me thiiiiissss*
4. Vanity Mirror
The lighting in my room sucks. Seriously. I have a really hard time blending my makeup when the lighting on both sides of my faces are uneven. A vanity mirror would make my beauty regimen so much easier, not to mention it’s waaay cheaper than a ringlight. I initially wanted a ringlight, but realized it’s over my budget. haha
5. Watercolor Paints / Supplies
After learning watercolor lettering during the CBTL Giving Journal 2016 launch, I bought a waterbrush and a small watercolor palette at the nearby bookstore a few days after. It was so much fun, but the watercolor palette I was able to buy was nothing compared to the quality of the Kuretake Gansai watercolor I was able to try out during the workshop.
Kuretake Gansai Tambi Watercolor Set of 36 colors
This one has amazing quality and pigmentation, plus the colors are sooo nice. i also received a nice adult coloring book for Christmas, so I wanted to practice my watercolor on that as well. *please please please get me this, pretty pretty pleeease*
6. An All-Around Bag
My tan leather all around bag recently gave up one me, so I’m on the lookout for it’s replacement. This one from Longchamp is very classy, and goes well with anything. Must visit the Longchamp flagship store in greenbelt to find out which size would suit me best.
Longchamp Le Pliage Cuir Small or Medium in Black, Gray or Navy Blue
7. Leather Jacket
My leather jacket ripped during my trip to Seoul Korea last year, and I haven’t found a replacement since. This one from Stradivarius can be candidate, but I’m still looking for other options.
8. Boxing Gear
My friends and I have recently started a Sunday boxing ritual, after realizing we all got fat after our travels. HAHA. So I’m thinking of investing in boxing gloves and wraps, since we regularly go to the gym anyway.
That’s it, for now. What do you think of my wishlist? Do we have anything in common? Do you have any of these?
photos mostly from Pinterest and from the official sites of the products.
Happy Holidays and a Blessed new Year to you and your family!!!
