On Getting Older + Birthday Wish List

birthday wish listIn just one week, I’ll be turning 27. I try not to be the type of person who freaks out about my age but officially being in my “late 20s” is making me feel a little old. Not that I think 20s are old by any means, but it makes me feel like I’m almost a real adult. I think no matter how old I get, I’ll always feel younger than I am – is that just me? I feel like just yesterday I was opening up the Adventures of Winnie the Pooh while wearing my Winnie the Pooh tunic shirt my mom made me.

For some reason I started to get really weird and I felt like it might come across as vain. BUT I actually love reading people’s birthday wish lists – it’s fun to see what other people like! Get ready for a really weird insight into my brain lol.

Bday-wish-list-

Anastasia Beverly Hills Paint  One of those “I’ve wanted this forever” items, I tried to buy a NYX dupe but it just didn’t do the trick. I think I’m going to have to fork over the money for the real deal on this gorgeous blue lippie. 

Target Women’s solid Med Belted Tote in Pink I am totally eyeing this bag because of Cameron Profitt – and seriously, how cute is this thing?! I’m loving the color and since my wardrobe is mostly neutral these days I have been eyeing more colorful accessories here and there.

Not Vodka bottle (aqua) Ever since Sevi started carrying her Not Vodka water bottle, I realized that I definitely needed one in my life. If you’ve ever been to a bar with me, you know vodka is my drink of choice. Vodka-Sprite is basically the only thing I drink so why not rep vodka when I’m getting my sweat on at Kaia?!

Birds of a Feather textile backdrop Now that I finally have a ring light (hallelujah), this is the last thing I need to get my YouTube videos where I want them to be. We live in a very small townhome and I just don’t have a spot with good lighting that acts as a nice backdrop, so instead I want to just have a cute backdrop I can hang anywhere!

Gaiam no-slip yoga towel Now that I’m doing yoga at least once a week, I’m realizing how much I need one of these non slip towels. Apparently I have sweaty hands because when I do any pose where my hands are on the ground, I’m constantly slipping out of it. Very annoying.

Kindle Fire 7″ Display HOW is this thing under $50?!? I’ve wanted an iPad for years but I just can’t bring myself to fork over that much money for something that’s essentially just a smaller, less powerful version of my computer. The new Kindle Fire is totally doable though – plus it doubles as a replacement for my Kindle (that’s not backlit). 

The Killing Joke Seeing the Killing Joke sneak peek the other day (!!!!!!) made me realize it’s been way too long since I last read this gem. I don’t have my own copy and it’s certainly one I need to add to my collection. If you’ve never read it before, just know it’s not for the faint of heart.

Queenbee Collar Another thing I’ve had my eye on for a while – seriously how gorgeous is this necklace?! I keep waiting for it to go on sale but haven’t had much luck yet. Sigh.

Striped Mock Neck Tank I’m revamping my closet at the moment and trying to insert some classic staple tops that are spring and summer appropriate. I especially love the high neck and 90s vibes coming from this one.

Bellami Silver Extensions  Not pictured because they look gross in the photo, but I’m totally digging on extensions these days. I’d probably have to cut them because these would be LONG on me, but I want mermaid hair like the rest of you babes! Not for everyday wear, but it’d be nice to have the option.

Anyone else have a birthday coming up soon? What are you asking for?!

xoxo

  1. That necklace is sososo good! It goes with everything you own. I have a tank like that Target one from Old navy last year and I wear it a toooon. Can’t wait to hear about you showing up to yoga with your Not Vodka bottle!

    So exciting about your upcoming birthday! I turn 26 in mid-May and I’m surprisingly stoked about it.

    1. Right?! Also I’m going to a Beyonce concert next week so I NEED a bee necklace.

      I need to get on the birthday excitement train – I don’t know what my deal is this year!!!!

  2. I’m gonna need you to have that bee necklace before the concert. That is too perfect!

    I love this entire list and it gave me some ideas for your birthday!!!!!

  3. Oh gosh I SO feel you on feeling like I’m almost an adult and being in your late 20’s! I feel like 28 (I’ll be 28 on the 27th) is such a mature age, and it’s almost 30, and I just don’t know if I’m ready for that yet!

    I hope you get some of these fun things for your birthday!
