My Christmas Wish List by Shanelle Gabriel

I do these for my birthday and for Christmas, although I pretty much end up buying these items on my own... or it ends up on the next list. lol. I do it for fun and maybe to put you on to some cool things.



Wouldn't my booty look GREAT in these??? 



For those of you that don't know, I'm an active runner training for my second half marathon right now. Yes, I run in the winter. No, I'm not crazy. After the 1st mile I'm usually pretty warm, but my legs tho! I  need some windproof tights to motivate me to run in the 20 degree weather NYC likes to drop to.  Size Medium please. 





2) iTunes Gift Card (Any value over $10)

I'm so in love with my iPad mini and, as always, TEAM IPHONE! A gift card so I can get some cool apps and music would be swell. Anything less than $10 isn't gonna do much... You know Apple isn't cheap.


3) Garmin 620                                                      or its less expensive cousin the Garmin 220                                    

I work at a specialty running store, and I've been drooling at these through the electronics window. My training for these two half marathons I'm doing next year would be soooooo much more effective if I had one of these with a heart rate monitor. The 620 is touchscreen and has a few more features (VO2 Max calculator, Wi-Fi capabilities, etc), but the second one is close behind in dopeness. 620 = $400 while the 220= $250

3)  iPad Mini Case with Bluetooth Keyboard
Speaking of my iPad mini, a keyboard would help me get more work done without having to hunt down my stylus. 

4) A Cozy Comforter
I don't get to see my bed enough... but when I do, I want the type of comforter set that makes me never want to leave it. 
5) Anything you think I'd like
I'm super easy to shop for. Keep it simple...I'm just happy to be thought of. :) 


Shanelle's Christmas Wish List by Shanelle Gabriel

Every year I do a birthday wish list and a Christmas wish list. While on most occassions, I end up buying them for myself, I always think what people want tells you a little about who they are. So here I am! Santa, I swear I've been a good girl! lol

1. RUNNING GEAR- As some of you know, I've been REALLY into running as my choice method of exercise. I'm even running in the NYC Half Marathon in March with Team Life Without Lupus in support of the S.L.E. Foundation. However, I realized quickly that serious running requires more than just some sweats and kicks. So some great gifts would be compression clothing (which holds in warmth but wicks away sweat), warm athletic gloves (the ones that allow me to use a touch-screen device), and running socks with extra cushioning around the toes and heels which keep feet warm and dry. See...A lot goes into this. 


2. iPHONE 4S or DROID RAZR for VZW- I still haven't decided between the two (although my iPod has been acting up as of late.) I'm not a techie, I just want a new phone that works well and can do cool stuff. So if someone offers me either of these phones, I'm sure I'll just be happy with it. lol


3. STARBUCKS GIFT CARD- I call Starbucks my "office." It's where I get work done, use the free wi-fi, have quick meetings, not to mention enjoy a tall soy chai tea latte or soy caramel machiatto (extra caramel). A gift card to offset this regular $5 expense would be much appreciated.

4. STUDIO TIME- Any help with getting my album done is greatly appreciated. Sessions can run me anywhere from $120 and up so contributions are dope. :)


5. A Nice Luxurious Queen-Size Bed Comforter Set: Lord knows how much I love my bed, so anything to add to its plushness and warmth would be much loved and appreciated. I love earth-tones (pale greens, chocolate browns, etc). :)
