Gift Guide: Myself

by astanhaus

I saved the best for last. Here’s what I will be treating myself to this Christmas!


One of my super powers is my ability to paint my fingernails before I go to sleep and wake up with my nails dry & uncreased. It runs in the family—thanks Mommie!

Plus, it’s expensive to get my nails done! $15/ week *52 weeks/year= $780!

But I will be indulging in this luxury this holiday season at the cheapest & cleanest place I can find!


Regardless of the day or occasion, I wear a significant piece of jewelry. I’ll be effectively using my free time this holiday season to scour vintage stores for jewels. When in Chicago I shop atLulu’s or if I’m in Montreal, The Little Shop is a must-visit!


Underwear is a necessity. And wearing well-constructed lingerie make all of my other clothes look better. Psst…my favourite brand right now is Fortnight. Their lingerie is jaw-droppingly beautiful! And more importantly, I have been told I look pretty good in it!

Merry Merry!
