Only 20 plus days till Christmas morning again and here in the house, we are almost ready. We have picked up all the major presents for the Kid and have decided not to get each other anything because the one main gift we did get will be more like a family gift anyways. I decided to throw together a little wish list of stuff that I came across this year that I thought would make great Christmas presents for me.
MAC Viva Glam 25 Lipstick
I do so love lipstick but I really don’t like spending a ton of money on it, I mostly opt for drugstore brands and usually when on sale for 5 dollars or less. But to me there is no more Iconic brand of makeup then MAC, Why? Because I can still remember when they made Ru Paul the spokesperson for the brand and at that point, it was the first time I had ever seen anyone in drag where it was not the punchline of a joke. But here we are years later and MAC has re-released the Viva Glam lipstick in the original color with special packaging and it looks so good. Plus all the proceeds from the Viva Glam line are donated.
Every cent of the selling price of VIVA GLAM Lipstick is donated to organizations that support the health and rights of people of All Ages, All Races and All Genders.
This would be a great present
What better way to enjoy that new lipstick than actually being able to see when I put it on. I am starting to feel the effects of aging, especially with my eyes. Things that I used to be able to read so easy before like the serial number and passwords for routers, I am now having to reach into my clipboard and pull out my cheaters. I already own a somewhat decent makeup mirror but the magnification is not great and it uses an old-style incandescent lamp and I would love to move up to an LED-style one. Found the one below at Bed Bath & Beyond.
An elegant update for your bathroom or dressing area, the freestanding LED Vanity Mirror features a beautiful chrome finish that enhances any decor. Perfect for putting on your makeup, it is dual sized and offers 5X magnification and true image.

I always like to try and pick out a new fancier outfit at Christmas time that I would wear if I was ever to go out. I always take a look at the Penningtons website because they seem to have the best fitting clothes for me and if I am lucky they will still have it when they have their big year end sale.
I picked out a couple this year, the first is a Jersey Dress with metallic fabric.
Plus size jersey dress made with shiny metallic lurex details in a relaxed fit that provides comfort without taking away any elegance. Perfect evening dress to pair with heels.
- 3/4 sleeves
- Knot detail in front
- 45-in length
and the second is a sleeveless lace dress
It’s the little black dress reinvented with refinement. This stunning plus size lace dress is designed in a flattering fit and flare silhouette. Designed in a silky crepe with an accordion pleated skirt and a lace top with no lining at the upper neckline for a sheer delicate accent.
- Concealed back zipper closure
- V-cutout at back with fabric-covered button-closure
- 48-in length
I am not a fan of sleeveless but I can’t help but love the look of this dress. I am sure it could be paired with a shawl of some sort to cover my arms if needed.
Both Dresses from Penningtons
And what goes better with a new dress than some new Lingerie to wear underneath it all. For lingerie, I always check out Addition Elle because they carry the Ashley Graham line of plus sizes but this year it was the store collection from Déesse that caught my eye. Although this was from last season so it’s already sold out but I still do love the lace and the colours. I have a few other sets in the Femme Couture line and they are some of my favorite’s
Déesse Femme Couture Lace Bra and High-Cut Cross Dye Lace Panty

So they were just a few of the nice things I have come across whilst surfing the internet that if I could, would add to my Christmas list.
What have you got on yours?
