birthday wishlist

With my birthday coming up on Saturday I thought it might be fun to put together a little wishlist of some of the things I've been coveting for my birthday. I always like reading other peoples' lists and thought it might be a fun thing to look back on years from now to see what I was "in to" upon turning the big twenty-three ;)

birthday list

1 // The Most of Nora Ephron  & Not That Kind of Girl 
      These are books I've been wanting to read ever since I heard they were coming out. I can't wait to add these to my collection (if not as a birthday gift then by my own purchase at some point).

2 // Clarisonic Mia
      I've heard such amazing things about this product. I really think this will do wonders for my skin.

3 // Disney DVDs
      Never too old, am I right? I decided last Christmas, as I was running out of ideas when people asked what I wanted, that I would ask for dvd copies of my favorite Disney movies so I could have a collection one day for my kids (and myself, obv).

4 // NARS Ita brush
      The most exorbitantly priced brush ever but one that I must have in my collection. I've heard it doesn't compare to any other contouring brush or dupe so what better time to ask for something you don't want to spend your own money on than on your birthday? ;)

5 // John Frieda Hot Air Brush
      I read this blog post on Cup of Jo (one of my absolute favorite blogs) several months ago and vowed to purchase a hot air brush asap. After realizing they sell the John Freida one she recommends at Ulta I decided to wait and let my boyfriend, who has worked there on and off since high school and gets a discount (hellooo), use said discount to get it for me for my birthday. Aren't I so nice? Haha, so I do happen to know I'll be getting this on Saturday (!!!) especially since he called me last night from the store to ask which size barrel I wanted. We're full of all kinds of mystery over here ;)

6 // Smashbox Master Class Palette 2
      Please, please, please birthday gods... send this my way. Just look at it.. how beautiful is that palette?!

7 // Lorac Pro Palette 2
      Another cheat. This is the other thing I asked from my boyfriend that I'm pretty sure I'm getting. I rationalize that he has a discount so it's okay I asked for both things. I'm kind of an asshole.

8 // Acrylic storage drawers
      I'm in desperate need of some storage drawers for my makeup area. Everything is laying all over the place and it's driving my organizing-is-fun-I-hate-chaotic-clutter (because I don't mind organized clutter ;) ) heart nuts.

So, there it is guys! My birthday wish list. Hopefully it doesn't sound super bratty. Minus the two things from my boyfriend I have to give a list of seven things to other people who keep hounding me for ideas. I'm seriously so blessed in all areas of my life that these material items are icing on the cake. But a beautiful cake :)


  1. I just started reading not that kind of girl, SO GOOD!

    1. Oh, excellent! Can't wait to read it now. Thanks for commenting!

  2. I have a few friends reading "Not that kind of girl" and I've heard it's pretty good! I'll have to add it to my list!

    1. Ahh, I love hearing good things about it! I just love her so I knew I needed to read it.
