Wishing doesn’t always make it so, but it’s a start. To focus my desirous energy I decided to whittle down my list to my top 3 choices. Not easy, but here goes.
Saint Laurent Opium Logo-Heel Pumps: I love the use of the logo as the design of the heel, and my curiosity is piqued. Are these shoes made for walking?
Tata Harper’s Rejuvenating Serum: Since the winter weather has taken a toll on my skin, and my best friend (as well as Gwyneth) swears by its benefits. And, because it is non-toxic and organic.
Spinelli Kilcollin Women’s Vega SG Pavé Ring: I literally can not stop thinking about these rings since I discovered them a year ago. This one makes my heart sing!
I love everything on this list, so I wouldn’t balk if any of the above lovelies made its way into my home, but it’s always nice to have a jumping off point.
My other, intangible wish is for refugees to be welcome the world over. Help refugees, forced to flee their home, and give them a chance to rebuild their lives. Donate here or here. Get involved here.
