What is on your holiday wish list? My SO is asking me to give him gift ideas but I feel like I have everything I need and can’t think of what I would ask for (~$500). Would love to get some inspiration from you all on what you’re looking at!

My husband and I discussed gifts this year and agreed we don't really need anything, so we would each do just one gift we really enjoy - he got me new leather moleskine notebooks because I like to use them to bullet journal and I got him his favorite chocolates from La Maison du Chocolat. Simple, not too expensive, but something we each really wanted and would enjoy.

Diamond stud earrings are on my list to me from myself. I want to get them from somewhere that I can upgrade to bigger ones later. I’m really into kind of classic simple jewelry, so I’m also looking at some necklaces and rings (actual gems) that I can wear everyday. I really like the silly looking ugg slipper sandal things, and anything warm and comfortable. Spa gift cards are always nice too.

Ooh diamond studs is a great idea!

A book of the month subscription! Can also be an assortment of items - new candles, chocolate (I’m a sucker for ferrero rocher), fuzzy slippers and fuzzy socks (you can never have too many fuzzy socks!!), new phone case, new AirPods case if you have that, a new band for your Apple Watch if you have that, etc.

Perfumes, can never have enough?

I'm trying to leave my job in big 4 (2nd yr). But, I don't feel adequate enough to try for senior positions (even entry-level). I feel so 'cause I see myself as an impostor: I don't know what I'm doing. I went to univ. and I'm ashamed to have trouble remembering certain basic concepts. Somehow I just survived, yet this feeling still remains to this day. It's clear I am not fit to work here. TBH, I think I got it by luck. I'm frustrated trying to change jobs yet I feel like I'm not good.
