But for Christmas's sake, and making it easy on those who can and would gift us with the things we want and need, I'm sharing with you my own Christmas & New Year wish list, including style, fashion, books, movies, perfume and beauty. And I urge you to share your wish list too in the comments! I'd love to read it during the longer days of the holidays and note down interesting things to try out next.
My first wish - my foremost wish for which all other wishes eclipse- is for peace. Peace now that people drown in the Aegean every single day. Let's effectuate the change we are.
On to more prosaic things.
My perfume wish list has already been posted on Fragrantica in All I Want for Christmas. (click the link to see) Rather short and to the point; 5 new perfumes only. They should fit a stocking, shouldn't they?
But I have a few more things to be grateful if they make an appearance under the Christmas tree.
here on Amazon.
If Santa is really generous I'd love this Tahitian grey-classic white-South Sea gold pearl bracelet by Mikimoto. Stunner!
Seven Brief Lessons on Physics by Carlo Rovelli was initially the inner geek's call to polish up my physics; a subject neglected since high school. But the aesthete in me admits arrogantly that it was the book jacket which caught my eye first.Available at Barnes & Noble and on Amazon last I checked.
These Sur La Table fruit grind graters are great for any of us who loves grating citrus rind with gusto only tolater find their kitchen full of small bits scattered everywhere. I also hope that it will allow me to actually collect the the remainder grinded bits and be able to tincture them in alcohol for using in condiments and dishes. How's that for a nifty idea combining scent and food in one?
Finally a ticket for a springtime trip to Japan to experience the Wisteria Tunnel at the Kawachi Fuji Gardens in Kitakyushu. That would be heavenly indeed....
Please share your wishlists in the comments below this post. I'd love to read them all!
