Being Just Melody

Dear Santa…

So when you become a parent, your list for Santa totally goes out the window and really becomes a “to buy yourself someday” list! LOL!

I’m a makeup, shoes and gadgets kind of girl, so that pretty much sums up my list.

Here are latest must haves in 2011:

I’ve been looking for a new digital SLR camera and what’s better than this one named one of the best inventions of 2010?! The Sony α55 DSLR Camera is also know as the camera that never blinks! You can shoot up to 10 perfectly focused photos a second and record HD video that never goes blurry. What more can you ask for?!

As you know I’ve been on my YouTube game the last few months, but recording videos have been slightly difficult with my camera, currently a Kodak Zi8. While it’s great for on the go, it doesn’t have some the features I need like auto focus and a wireless controller. So after much research, I have set my sights on this baby… A Canon Vixia M30. It’s right in the middle of the price range, but has all the features I am looking for. HD recording, face detection, Touch & Track auto focus, etc…

I love my iPhone 4 and I love my car… I need to marry these two. I always keep the iPod on my phone full of the hottest music but hate having to make CDs to listen to the music. So I’ve been needing to get a new FM transmitter. The Monster iCarPlay works for me.  Easy fix!

Boots, boots, boots… Cold weather means boots for me!  Flat boots, Over-the-knee boots, Booties… I love them all and you can’t go wrong with gorls and their boots. This season has been all about over-the-knee boots for me. The Dain boots from ALDO are so bad-ass, I love straps and buckles as hot detailing!

This Cognac Iden Boot from Steve Madden is a great flat boot that I’ve had my eye on for a while. I love the cognac color, it’s a must have for any Fall and Winter collection.

When it comes to makeup, one of the best ways to stage a deal is to take advantage of the holiday palettes! I have my eye on 2 amazing sets that offer a lot of bang for the buck! Plus they are perfect for traveling!!

Tarte’s The Jewelry Box is a Sephora exclusive, limited-edition palette packed with 32 new eyeshadows, eight lip glosses, a mineral bronzer, a new shimmering powder, five deluxe long-wearing eyeliners, and a detachable necklace.

Lorac’s Box Office Sensation is also a great gift option with 36 eyeshadows, nine lip glosses, three blushes, and one bronzer that will help you bring out your inner starlet. Packaged in a compact, faux-crocodile train case with swing out shelves, this cute little number with a dazzling variety of colors packs a big punch.

While perusing Macy’s a few weeks ago I swatched the new Lancome Holiday palettes and fell in love with the Embellished Emerald palette! Green is a great complimentary color for brown eyes and these shades are gorgeous!!

If you want a great face, great brushes are key. I have some brushes from Sigma and I definitely love the quality and want to collect all of them… They offer a really sweet premium brush kit, with brush roll… Perfect for travel!

The SigMax HD brushes are also a must have!

Soooo that’s my splurge list… in no particular order.

Noticed that I left Santa wine instead of milk? Yeah, bonus points for Mel!

What’s on your list??
