LUST-HAVE LIST: January 2022 | STAINED COUTURE

So…how has 2022 been treating you so far? As you may be able to tell how late this month’s Lust-Have List, my new year has started off a little hectic. However, I’m still striving and thriving with no intentions to let up. Better late than never is definitely my life motto and for 2022.

I always say that my December Lust-Have Lists are Christmas wishlists. Well, I guess I can consider the January Lust-Have List as a list of things I wish I got for Christmas. So, keep reading to see what I wish I got for Christmas a.k.a my January 2022 Lust-Have List.

LUST-HAVE LIST: January 2022

  • Olay Regenerist Night Recovery Cream – I’m in need of a good night cream and want to try a good drugstore night cream. When Olay released these cream a couple years ago, it was all over my social feeds. Since most, if not all, were paid promotions – I decided to give it a minute to try. However, the reviews are still pretty great and I’m ready to try it.
  • Nesting Coffee Table – I’ve been eyeing this nesting coffee table from Ikea for the past few months. I told myself that I would buy it after the holidays, but it won’t be back in stock at my Ikea for another 2 weeks. As soon as I see it’s back, I’m going to go buy it.
  • Vegan Leather Hoodie – I love casual pieces that can also be worn in more professional or not so lax settings. This vegan leather hoodies from Fabletics definitely works. Plus, it goes from sizes XXS-4X!
  • White Hiker Boots – I’m obsessed with this boots! I might end up ordering this soon, because I have some JustFab credits. However, if these are as optic white as they appear online, I’m going to wear them non-stop.

However, I decided to include a couple of gift ideas for people that also enjoy and are part of the 420 culture. I mean, it is legal in most states and felt like including some products for it. My site, so I can share what I please.

LUST-HAVE LIST: December 2021

LUST-HAVE LIST: December 2021

LUST-HAVE LIST: December 2021 | STAINED COUTURE

Sorry, this post was late and I was MIA last week, but ya girl caught a horrible head cold. It was bad, but the fact that I hadn’t been sick in a couple of  years is what made it worst. I started feeling it late on Tuesday, but it kicked in on Wednesday. So, I’ve been laying low and self-medicating, which paid off because I feel better. As of this morning, I’m back to about 90% – I still have to get rid of this slight cough and my voice is kinda strained. Still, I feel better than I did 3 days ago and that’s a win.

Although it’s almost a week late, here is my Lust-Have List for December. Like my Lust-Have list for my birthday month, this can be considered a Christmas wishlist. Unfortunately, I didn’t tell anyone these are things that I’m wanting. So, I will probably have to try to score this myself during those after-Christmas sales.

Anyway, here are the items that I’m wanting this month.

LUST-HAVE LIST: December 2021

  • Fleece-lined Leggings – A couple of weeks ago I decided to try to start going on morning walks again. Unfortunately, I got this desire to do on a morning when it was 30 degrees outside. I quickly realized that the compression leggings I wore in the summer and fall wouldn’t work. So, these fleece lined leggings from Old Navy are definitely at the top of my list
  • On Cloud Black Sneakers – I didn’t hear about On Cloud until this year, but now I want a pair. Actually, since I pretty much walked my soles thin on my other walking shoes, these are a need, too.
  • Double Old Fashion Whiskey Glasses – Finally got around to setting up my home bar cart and it’s gold theme. So, these gold-trimmed whiskey glasses will be perfect. Plus, I love the old fashion detailed, because it looks like the ones my parents had growing up.
  • Cat Eye Blue Light Blocking Glasses – Like most people, I stare at some sort of screen most of the day. So, it’s time that I get a pair glasses to help block the blue light. Loving the thin frame of these I spotted over on Amazon.
  • Rose Gold Rope Bracelet – Last week, I finally replaced my standard silicone apple watch band with a chicer rose gold band. Love it, but think I’ll love it more it was paired with this thin rose gold rope bracelet.
