A birthday edition of wish list Wednesday this time around. My 25th birthday is on the 12th, and here are some things that would be icing on the cake. This wish list is a bit more ambitious money-wise than I normally go for, but it is a wish list, and a birthday one at that, so why not wish big?
iPhone 5s & case. I’ve surprised myself by actually thinking I might want the gold and white version. I’m not really a gold person, but this gold is a bit more matte and “brushed” as opposed to 80s decadence. of course, no use in having a pretty phone if it’s going to get dinged up, so this leather one will provide some protection without the bulk.
non. je ne regrette rien print. Edith Piaf would be proud. I’m trying to make this my new motto. we all make mistakes and wish that we had done some things differently, but all of those things contribute to who we are and who we’re becoming. I wouldn’t want to trade the experience for perfection, so ultimately, no, I regret nothing.
winter candles. I love the way a fresh pine tree smells, but our apartment is too small for a real Christmas tree. these candles will give me the scent I’m missing out on.
glass pharmacy jars. I’m a sucker for storage, a double sucker for pretty storage. these jars would lend a touch of vintage to our ultra-modern bathroom.
beauty updates. the cold air is well and truly here to stay, and I’m adjusting my makeup/skincare routine accordingly. I’d like a serum to layer under moisturizer for added anti-dryness protection and a winter-appropriate foundation with more coverage. this balm protects my lips and gives them the loveliest pink tint. this almond body oil is amazing in every way. the scent is intoxicating, yet not overpowering, and it’s sure to do wonders for my skin post-warm shower. lastly, I’ve been dying to try nails inc.’s porchester square and it happens to be the included shade in this set of minis. how cute are they?
the perfect bag. ah. this would take the price for present I want most. I’d trade in everything else on this wish list for this, including the iPhone update I actually need (my phone freezes on the daily now). it’s a lot pricey so I’m thinking I’ll keep saving my pennies until Christmas, but like I said, why not wish big?
