My birthday is just two days away, and I am, of course, very excited. Recently, a coworker said she thought birthdays are silly things to get excited about. Well, that’s her problem. I LOVE THEM. I love my birthday. I love Tim’s birthday, and Marco’s birthday, and all of my friend’s birthdays. Its a day out of the year where we say, “Hey! You are you, and that is awesome! Here, have some cake.” What is not to love about this?
Also, sometimes, there are presents. Like I said, what is not to love? Here are a few items I’m wishing for:
My potential perfume! I like to switch up my scents every few years, and this one has made the cut. I ran out of Balenciaga Paris a few weeks ago and I feel naked.
Ash ‘Titan’ boots
TOMS ‘Desert’ bootie in Chestnut
Tell the Wolves I’m Home by Carol Rifka Brunt
Silpat silicone cookie sheet. The pastry chefs at Bouchon Bakery always used these, so I know they are good.
Melie Bianco ‘Sylvana’ purse. I saw this in blue at a boutique and now I want both colors!
Tim ordered something online last week and it arrived today in a plain USPS box. Very suspicious.
I need these flats in my closet, STAT!
My biggest wish is to remodel our kitchen (finally), so I am working on Timmy to get it going for the end of summer/fall. Here’s a few of my many inspiration pics:
Saving up to buy a camera bag, but can’t decide between this one:
and this one:
And I think I need some more of this…
Oops…didn’t mean to sneak that in there!
Ok, so not all of the items are attainable. I mean, who knows if I’ll ever have that nice of a kitchen.
It’s the time of year where I start thinking of what I want for Christmas (besides Marco’s front tooth to FINALLY CUT THROUGH! LOL), and this year I found some super-rad goodies.
I am hoping that one of these awesome items ends up underneath my Christmas tree!
Nikon Speedlight SB-600 (mine died a painful death)
CLOTHING & ACCESSORIES:
Toggle Coat with Faux Fur Hood
De Chelly dress
What are you dearies wishing for?
My birthday is only 1 month away (I’m turning 26)!
I love making wishlists, so here’s my birthday list:
One of the best British comedies! I was already a Hugh Laurie devotee, but I fell in love with Stephen Fry because of this awesome series, which is based on the hilarious ‘Jeeves’ stories by P.G. Wodehouse.
I love the black Converse slip ons that I purchased a few months back; but these are a bit girlier.
Found this on Etsy several months ago. A beautiful handmade journal with a bit of one of my favorite Sonnets!
Awesome color, and a classic sneaker.
We have a winner!! Balenciaga Paris has received the seal of approval from Tim. I love this scent. Wearing it made me feel elegant and bohemian at the same time; very European. All I had was a teeny sample to apply to my wrists and neck, though. I need a bottle!
I have the 3G, and it’s served me well over the past two years. My contract is officially up, and for now I will not renew unless I get the iPhone 4 (I’m just riding it out on monthly terms). I want FaceTime! There are, of course, rumours that AT&T is losing its exclusivity contract, and Verizon may have a CDMA iPhone – if that happens, I may wish to switch to Verizon. BUT, it wouldn’t happen until January 2011, and I don’t know what Verizon’s monthly price would be for service.
More vinyl records! I have a very small collection, and would love to expand it. I just pre-ordered Jimmy Eat World’s new album, ‘Invented’ on vinyl, and am very excited for it’s arrival; unfortunately, it won’t ship out until September 28th.
